Private, Spectacular Ocean Vistas - Swimming Pool !

Family-friendly villa in Pender Island
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.

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. For the kids - there's a tent set up in the woods...see if you can find it!

When you're ready, Pender Island offers art galleries, 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 a weekend Farmers' Market at the Community Center.

SunRaven is walking distance from the Otter Bay ferry terminal.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include showers. Cribs/infant beds are also available.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing ocean views and gorgeous home
The property is amazing and our host was very attentive and quick to respond to any questions. The house itself has gorgeous views and was well stocked with everything you need. Close to the ferries so it’s an easy spot to access but feels very secluded and peaceful. Great for a family weekend away!

A hidden gem!
We had a fantastic trip to Pender island. This property was fantastic, well-equipped and the warm pool was a nice perk. The host was fantastic with our questions and very accommodating. We'll likely visit again!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful, inside and out!
The rental is more amazing than it looks in the photos - especially the fire, the kitchen, and the ocean view where we spent most mornings and evenings just staring at the island and enjoying the countless ferries. Steve was a terrific host! Air quality was terrible prior to our trip due to smoke in the air from nearby wildfires and was not forecast to improve so he offered cancellation with 100% refund the day before we went. And since we'd booked ferries to allow for outdoor activities before and after, Steve was kind enough to allow us to check in early and check out late since we thought we'd be stuck indoors (air quality). We were also pleasantly surprised by the island itself. We hadn't really looked for activities (thinking anything would be fun during a girls' trip) but didn't have high expectations. Turns out there are 22 beach access points - each beach with it's own unique qualities, a handful of hikes (I HIGHLY recommend Mount Norman, a 30 minutes steep incline with THE BEST. VIEW. EVER!), not to mention kayaking, canoeing, and cycling if you are so 'inclined'. The only thing you may want to take note of is the fact that it only has 1 bathroom. It's a beautiful bathroom with a VERY NICE shower.. but may not be ideal for more than 2 or 3 people. Thank goodness we did NOT take Steve up on his cancellation offer - what an amazing weekend!
