If you’re looking for some serious R&R, the Wharf Waterfront Suite is the place. We loved our stay and the list of reasons is long. Gaylene and Daniel are warm hosts who are eager to provide a first rate experience. As the pictures indicate, the suite was spotless (our first criteria for any vacation rental), very spacious and bright that...

It was our first trip to Canada travelling from the UK, and the memories of our stay will forever be in our hearts. Gaylene and Daniel could not have made our stay any more perfect. Their accommodation was superb and the scenery, and abundant wildlife was breath taking. It's the most beautiful place we have ever stayed in, and the...

Our four days at the Wharf Waterfront Suite were spectacular! From the moment we arrived Gaylene & Daniel were so warm and welcoming. They are wonderful hosts! The suite was immaculate, spacious and well appointed with everything we needed. The views from the deck are amazing. There are blankets to cozy up in while we watched the boats and wildlife....

About the neighborhood
40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay (near Vancouver) to Langdale (on the Sunshine Coast) and drive on scenic highway one hour to Madeira Park. We are located in Pender Harbour area, known as the “Venice of the North” for its over 50 km of meandering shoreline, in the middle of the Sunshine Coast, The Wharf Waterfront Suite is the ideal base from which to do many trips! We're only minutes away from many warm lakes, or take a plunge off the wharf into the clear ocean! The house is nestled on side of a mountain on a peninsula, and it is very peaceful and secluded. Enviably situated for viewing boats entering the harbour, there's never a dull moment. There are two small uninhabited islands to discover just a 5-minute row across the water. Watch the local sailboat race on Saturday.... more
