Reservation process and checking in dismal! Disappointed that the pool was not heated as we were led to believe at time of reservation that it was. Prepared to spend $200 for Spa access (5 x $40) for heated pool and was denied as they were to busy meanwhile the Spa was extremely quiet. Neither front desk nor Spa receptionist seemed... More

My family (2adults, 1 Kid, 1 Dog) and I stayed here for two nights in January. The resort is nearly new, and was quite quiet and tranquil for our stay. We booked into a two bedroom unit that was pet friendly for our stay. We stayed in unit 10 which was huge and had all the appropriate kitchen stuff to... More

What a beautiful setting, peaceful and abundance of wildlife. Exceptionally clean accommodation, kudos to the housekeeping team! We were advised when booking that restaurant was closed and with the close proximity to the village was not an issue. IGA and small cafe's, walking distance from the resort. Look forward to returning this year!

Excellent service provided by Ty. Villa had excellent views, extremely clean and everything was top notch! It was close to an IGA market and BCL. Perfect getaway. We would highly recommend Painted Boat Resort!

This is the second time I stay here at the Painter Boat Resort in Pender Harbour. It is a super clean resort. The units are very nicely decorated, clean, and fully equipped. It is more a summer destination rather than winter one. The units all face the harbour, so the view is INCREDIBLE. The rooms very comfortable, the chimney very... More

We visited Painted Boat in late August, from Australia, for a wedding. Fantastic location, typical of what we thought of the Canadian coastal landscape. Accommodation and service was excellent; overall, a wedding and experience we will remember for a long time.

Very well equipped, comfortable and excellent view from this huge condo. You can cook, barbeque or eat well at the convenient restaurant on site. We had 2 days on business in the area and loved returning to what felt like home after work with the bonus of a swimming pool, hot tub and big deck to watch sunset.
