We loved our stay here. It was everything we expected and more. Very beautiful view inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

The space was big with 3 equally great bedrooms with gorgeous view and access to the deck. The beds were really comfortable ( I have a bad back so that was important to me). We also love to cook so it was great to find the kitchen so functional and well equipped. I also have to say I loved the inner space too with the great art on the walls from the island artists.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our baby, and I stayed there in early October and it was wonderful. Pender island is easy to get to from mainland Vancouver Island. Plenty of places to eat and shop in the area. The house has amazing views from the deck and every room. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking essentials. This was the perfect retreat we needed. Not hard to find or get to, but feels secluded. We’ll be back!

Great fun on Pender Island

  • 5 of 5

My family of four spent four nights at Rosemary House and it was fantastic. The house itself is perfect for a getaway, a huge deck with a beautiful view for relaxing as well as lots of open space in the main room for the kids to run around while we made dinner. We really enjoyed taking the steps down to the beach, the kids loved throwing rocks in the water and finding crabs underneath the larger ones.

The beds were all very comfy and everything was very clean, with a well-stocked kitchen for cooking. All and all a wonderful place!

Sandra (the owner) was very helpful. We had another rental fall through at the last minute and communication was very fast to get this set up on short notice, we were fortunate to end up with one of the few holes in the booking calendar! We would definitely recommend Rosemary House as a great place to stay on Pender.

Sandra's vacation rental was amazing for the whole family, including our dogs

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Rosemary house and it was fantastic. Sandra has done an amazing job curating a mid century moder bungalow into a vacation rental. The fridge and cupboards were stocked with little extras like spices and condiments, which was a great surprise. My family loved exploring the rocky beach below the house and I enjoyed morning yoga on the deck (all props and mats inclouded with the rental) and going for runs down south Pender's winding roads. The only thing to detract from our experience (4.5 instead of 5) would be the mattress in the master suit was sub par and could use replacing, and the deck chairs weren't super comfortable either. These things are small annoyances that minimally detracted from our stay. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone who is looking for a get away over looking the pacific ocean.

Pender Island Magic at Rosemary House

  • 5 of 5

Rosemary house is in a great oceanfront location with an amazing view from the expansive deck or the beach across to Saturna and another arm of South Pender. The house is fully equipped for everything you need to either just relax and enjoy the huge deck or get active by hiking, bike riding, golfing, exploring, or just walking to nearby Mortimer Spit for wonderful sunsets. The house has a great layout for a family with large bedrooms and bathrooms at either end. The kitchen has everything a gourmet cook could want including a large island prep area. There is even a picnic basket should you want to head out to any number of Pender Island's amazing viewpoints for a picnic. We had one of our best holidays in recent years at Rosemary House. The house has everything anyone could want for a perfect ocean getaway, and staying at Rosemary House will help you feel right at home. Sandra is very responsive and friendly, and made us feel very welcome at this beautiful home away from home.
