Family-friendly villa in Pender Island with outdoor pool
Secluded and private, heavily wooded 4 acre mountainside property. SunRaven is restful and silent, but for the sound of the birds in the morning and the gentle winds in the towering fir, oak and arbutus forest.

The 1,500 square foot SunRaven villa was tastefully renovated in 2015 and offers three large bedrooms, each with queen-sized bed. One bedroom - the 'loft room' - also has a loft (7 feet up a ladder) with a play area and an additional queen sized mattress, ideal for children. A spacious, sun-lit bathroom has a large, walk-in shower. And you can prepare your meals in the well-equipped, kitchen or fire-up the barbecue on the balcony.

In 2020, SunRaven was fitted with a large roof-top solar array that provides all of the electrical power used annually, including a Level 2 EV charger. The gas generator was replaced with an eco-friendly battery back-up system that guarantees back-up power under any circumstance.

Our south facing 60 foot balcony is sun-drenched from sunrise to sunset and offers breath-taking ocean views of the Gulf Islands and snow-capped Olympic Mountains. You can spend the day with a good book, or just watch the tidal ocean currents, the passage of sailboats and ferries, and the ever-changing hues of the wind on the water.

Our in-ground swimming pool with it's large sun deck is open June - September. Or enjoy a walk through our forested hillside.

When you're ready, Pender Island offers art galleries, local winery and cidery, bistros and restaurants, golf and disc golf. Or wildlife reserves, deserted beaches and beautiful forest hiking trails. Poet's Cove Marina Resort, whale watching, kayaking, artist studios and on Saturday, a Farmers' Market at the Community Center.

SunRaven is walking distance from the Otter Bay ferry terminal.

5/5 Excellent

My sister, an old friend, and I stayed at Sun Raven in September and it was excellent. The place is beautiful, with an incredible view, and Steve was a perfect host. He went above and beyond to make our stay ideal, advising us about good hiking trails, providing wood for the fireplace, and helping us make the most of the rainy weather. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious, and we enjoyed cooking while there. The only advice I would offer to other guests is to be aware that a lot of light comes in the bedroom with the skylight overhead, and another bedroom is quite light in the morning too. Any light sensitive guests might need to bring an eye mask. Still, overall, it was an amazing place to stay, and we are definitely returning.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous Quality Spacious Home with Stupendous View
Steve the host is a lovely man with a passion for people and art, which is evident throughout his many pieces of artwork throughout his tastefully appointed home. The pool is the icing on the cake, as well as the house’s spacious deck in which to stare at the view. 2 minute drive to the ferry and only minutes drive about the island for restaurants and shops.

5/5 Excellent

One of the Best Views on the Island
The home was fabulous. There was a beautiful and luxurious kitchen, dining room with a huge table and lovely living room with a wood burning stove. It wasn't cool enough to use the stove while we were there. Our host, Steve, was very attentive when we needed any assistance which was rare and everything is provided. I would highly recommend his home to anyone and would not hesitate to book it again in the future.

5/5 Excellent

We really enjoyed our stay. The tweens/teens enjoyed the pool and we loved to sit on the balcony and enjoy the amazing view of the water. Steve was a fantastic host!
