We stayed here for 3 nights with our daughter and had a fabulous time. The accommodation is spotless and everything you might require is provided. The owners clearly spend a lot of time maintaining the property. The views from the property are outstanding and can be enjoyed from all the main rooms including the bedroom, the long veranda, the bbq...

Everything about this place was just perfect. You have a speechless ocean view from your windows, and the suite is 5 stars hotel level spotless clean. The king size bed was so comfy, every night I fell asleep right after I put my head on the pillow, even smells fantastic! I enjoyed watching a variety of wildlife including humming birds,...

Thank you so much for your review! We really enjoyed having you both to stay here also and your joie de vivre of nature. We are pleased you had a good sleep on the king bed, which is very important for a really good vacation and rest from bustling city life. The air out here is also beautiful and fresh....

We were so happy with everything about our recent stay at the Wharf Waterfront Suite. Gaylene & Daniel met us outside and gave us a tour of the suite. What a difference when the owners of the property are the ones who let you in and show you around! They take great pride of ownership in this rental, as they...

Daniel and I are so happy you both enjoyed your stay so much. Yes, having a comfortable bed and a cool room on a hot summer night is important!

About the neighbourhood
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-m row across the water. Watch the local sailboat race on Saturday. Grab... more
