Observe an abundance of wildlife - whales, deer, otters, seals, eagles.

The space

A fully equipped oceanfront cottage with magnificent views. Hummingbird Cottage has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and second bedroom has 2 single beds that can be put together to make a king. A four piece bathroom and combination washer/dryer, a sitting/dining/kitchen area with wood stove, fridge, oven and microwave. A large outside patio area receives ample sunshine and has a spectacular view of the ocean, where you can often catch a glimpse of Orca's and other sea life.

We are 1/2 km. from the ferry.

Guest access

The heated pool, hot tub and grass tennis court are available for use by guests and are shared with the hosts and guests staying in our two other cottages. There is also a walk down from the pool through the woods to the waterfront.

* Pool and Tennis Court are currently closed for the Winter and will re-open May 19th for the Summer Season.

Interaction with guests

The owners live in the main house on the property and are available most of the time. The use of the tennis court, pool and hot tub is shared with the owners.

Other things to note

The Island has a Recycling Station but no garbage dump so all garbage has to be taken off Island. We ask our guests to put all food waste in the compost bin provided and keep all recycling items separate from the garbage.
The pool is open from May long weekend until mid-September, weather permitting. A cover is put on from dusk to 9:30 am to retain the heat. The hot tub is also kept covered to retain the heat and we ask guests to put the cover back on after each use.

This place is as advertised! Talk about a view! you can sit and watch the ferry traffic until the sun slips away. Matt's place is perfect for a Pender island retreat. It's close to everything and the property is incredible. The place is clean and well equipped for your visit. Matt was very accommodating and prompt he was a great host to our family. No need to look any further, you just found the place for your weekend away.

You won't be able to stay only once...because you won't be able to help yourself, and will want to book another stay. :)

We had a great stay at the Hummingbird Cottage! The actual cottage was clean and bright and exceeded my expectations. The view from the cottage was picture perfect and there was easy access to the ocean. We had a great stay and hope to come back again!

Dreamy property, with an idyllic pool and tennis court. This is a perfect spot for a slow, peaceful stay with lots of reading and wine drinking;) The cabin was just perfect for our family of three! Thank you!

The hummingbird cottage was a great little place for our family (2 adults and 2 small children). We had a great time at the local beaches looking for crabs and starfish. The pool on the property was great for a quick cool down. There were also amazing blackberries on the property to pick and eat! Lastly the grass tennis court was fun for kids and adults....Matt will give you a great game of tennis if you want.
