Airstreams, hot tubs, hammocks, cocktails, star gazing, trail walking...the list could go on! My partner and I stayed at the Woods with our dog and loved every moment - Yes they are pet friendly! Such a special place for a relaxing get away :) And if it couldn't get any better, word has it they are even starting to offer... More

We stayed in Cabin #1 (the most private) over the Feb long weekend. Benefits was that it was quiet and secluded although I imagine in the summer when all the places are filled it's a pretty lively place! Cabin had everything we needed (BBQ, firepit, hot tub, apple TV were happy bonuses!) and when a few things were missing or... More

This is exactly the place to stay to enjoy time on beautiful Pender Island. Your host is a known "foodie" and is setting the bar for the rest of the island with the food he serves. The accommodation is cool and varied. Airstream trailers abound - 'nuff said. The cabin (I stayed in one) is cozy and welcoming. I spent... More

Woods on Pender has the advantage of being, obviously, on Pender Island, so the location is a beautiful, wooded hillside. And the cabin we rented was roughly was we expected. However, it did not have all the amenities advertised. First, they informed us the hot tub at the cabin was broken. I was disappointed and was a bit surprised when... More

Hi, Thanks for your review. Sorry you had a series of issues with your stay. I checked our bookings and can't identify you to specifically address what happened. The WiFi was down a couple of times both tied to power outages and a power surge issue that wiped out our new modems. In both cases guests called us and we... More

Had a great time Glamping here while exploring Pender Island for a few days. Stayed in the Safari SE - what a great experience. Kitchen and linen closet were well equipped with all the necessities. Didn't bring our car and were able to walk most places, or use the car stop system. Our gracious hosts picked us up from the... More

We stayed for three nights (had to add one on and move one room), but that tells you we were happy here. Appreciated the efforts to accommodate us. The first two nights were very quiet and we had the hot tub to ourselves and pretty much the run of the lodge area which was restful and relaxing. Good wifi. We... More

My partner & I decided to try glamour camping at Woods on Pender. We rented the Safari #4 Airstream for the week. On checking in, Curtis greeted us & took us to our Airstream trailer. It was situated in a beautiful spot in the pine/cedar forest. The Airstream was well equipped with sleeping, cooking, dining, washroom/showering & entertainment facilities. Curtis... More
