About Lorraine Lawrence

After emigrating from the Uk and living on the sunshine coast for just a few months we were introduced to Shores cottage by a realtor friend and fell in love with it and the charm that it possesses

Over the last few years we have completely renovated the cottage to make it feel cozy and welcoming.

Even though we only live 40 minutes away we feel totally refreshed and relaxed once we reach the area of pender harbour, unpack and relax is our motto and we hope that like our many annual returning guests that you will also enjoy the tranquility and enviromnent of our wonderful home

Lorraine Lawrence purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Lorraine Lawrence chose Madeira Park

We chose to purchase this home for the peace and tranquility of the location, we prefer to holiday away from the crowds, Madeira park is great for couples and families and offers a more private getaway from busy daytripper beaches and lack of privacy

What makes this cottage unique

Wildlife at its best, we have deer roaming the yard , eagles that sit atop the trees opposite the cottage each day, otters on the dock at night eating their catch.

Also a perfect fishing bay with plenty of crab and fresh prawns whether caught by yourself or purchased straight from the boats in the harbour

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thankyou for making us feel right at home, we love the location, the beach, the beach, the cabin and the curious visitors in the garden

Thanks again

Beautiful cottage with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

We have spent many breaks on the sunshine coast and have stayed in the majority of rentals here, we had seen this cottage but had never booked before, what a mistake we made

IT IS BEAUTIFUL , What we loved is that it is south facing, lovely warm sun all day with the option of moving outside chairs into shade if and when required

Also unlike other rentals this one had different seating areas , we could have a coffee at a smaller table on deck over looking ocean, or dinners at an undercover table & chairs if weather was wet, or sunny table & chairs on deck if dry , the different options allowed everyone to be happy

Lots of kitchen flatware, plates. cups etc so you dont need to wash up all day, plenty of towels etc This is a home that is used by the owners and it shows because they have catered for most needs

There is even a whole bookcase if you want to read the latest romance, As you can tell we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here and have already booked a longer stay

Fantastic views from the deck

  • 5 of 5

A family of four (with 1and 3 year old kids) really enjoyed the place.

Family friendly house. A beach is just 2min away and a large deck for kids to play and for adults to sit and enjoy beautiful evenings.

It was the Easter weekend and kids enjoyed the egg hunt, playing soccer and throwing stones into the water at the nearby beach.

The house has everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

Cannot fault this home in anyway, everything you could wish for was provided, kitchen was fully equipt plenty of towels , also a book library which was great on rainy days

Deck provided amazing views of ocean and boats to watch going by

The most delightful fire for winter nights kept us really cozy, we wanted a nice quiet romantic break and we sure had that, we were teenagers again

Loved it, will definately be back

A Deck with a View

  • 5 of 5

The view from the deck of the cottage is beautiful. We often sat on the deck and watched the boats, currents and observed the tides. We used this a guide before we went kayaking. The kayaking around this area is amazing. Steve and Lorraine provided us with excellent information about "canoe pass" which led into a larger bay and public marina. You can launch a lighter kayak from the rocky beach that is accessed through a public stairway across the street from the cottage. The cottage itself is well appointed and came with all of the essentials to make our stay comfortable. The living room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the full kitchen and laundry facilities. We highly recommend this property for families or couples that are looking for a quiet get away. The dead end street makes it very attractive as the only people who are frequenting this area are owners themselves. We often walked the area and even ventured as far as the IGA for groceries and lunch at Budabing burgers. All and all, it was a great week away! Thanks for sharing your cottage with us Lorraine and Steve.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay and really loved the cottage and location. It had everything we were looking for and was ideal for boating/fishing etc..The cottage itself is very well located and very cosy, we really appreciated it. Medeira park is a quaint little community and we will continue to come back to this area. The only downside was that we were a bit disappointed with the beach across from the cabin as it is quite rocky and not super child friendly for little ones. Other than that, we would gladly recommend The Shores cottage!

This property benefits for a huge deck overlooking the ocean , south facing you can soak up the sun all day long, sunbathe on the deck loungers or sit under the dappled shade

Ocean breeze is refreshing and only a few steps to the ocean to enjoy an afternoon swim.

The beach is stony therefore beach shoes are advisable , best time to enjoy a swim is late afternoon early evening when the sun have warmed the bay and temperature is just perfect

Whether you come spring, summer fall or winter this location is great to kick off your shoes and chill, how do we know? we do it everytime you are not here

Also a great winter vacation to watch the storms on the ocean and enjoy the rain on the tin roof, cozy up with the fires on , read a book and relax

Nothing quite like it a piece of heaven away from the city rain or shine

We purchased this property in 2006 and have enjoyed the tranquility and beauty of the enviroment everytime we need that special time away from the stresses of work and everyday life and have tried to make it a special place for everyone who stays there to enjoy it as we do
