Located in the peaceful neighbourhood of Deep Cove at the north end of the Saanich Peninsula, Pendray House is your idyllic beachfront cottage.

Set against the glittering ocean and nestled in the fir trees on the property, this charming seaside cottage was built in 1948 but has since been renovated to provide guests with all the modern conveniences and style while still retaining the cottage charm.

Perfect for large families looking to spend as much time on the water as possible, this 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom property offers ample sleeping accommodations and room for kids of all ages to enjoy the pristine waters of the Saanich Inlet in peace and privacy.

As you drive to the house youll notice that the property is on a no-through road making it a tranquil spot close to Victoria. The large front yard is an ideal space to play with kids or relax on a sunny day.

As you enter the home, youll notice the beautiful warm, knotted wood floors that run throughout the main floor of the home. The open concept shared living spaces with wood paneled walls, a large, free-standing stone fireplace, built by the original owners in 1948 and comfortable cottage-style furnishings, this home is the epitome of casual seaside comfort.

The living room is furnished with plush sofas, large flat screen TV and integrated HIFI sound system making it the perfect place to relax with a drink at the end of the day, enjoy a fire in the fireplace while you steam your favourite series or listen to some music and watch the sunset from the large, west facing window.

The dining area offers ample seating for large family meals and is the perfect area to enjoy family game night or a bottle of wine with the backdrop of the Saanich Inlet and Cowichan Valley from the panel of windows.

The cottage kitchen is a beautiful space with wood paneled cupboards hung with wrought iron hinges and handles that adds to the heritage country charm of the home. Fitted with bright white, modern appliances, this kitchen is an ideal space to make coffee on a sunny morning or whip up your favourite meal after a day out on the water.

On the main floor of the home you will find the primary queen suite and two more queen sized bedrooms. The primary suite is a soothing space with peaceful lighting and a dedicated ensuite for privacy and convenience. Here you can find a place for rest and relaxation from the rest of the house and wake up every morning feeling rested. The second and third bedrooms are similarly appointed with calming colours, comfortable mattresses and high end linens to ensure that visitors get a good nights sleep, every night. The lovely four piece main floor bathroom boasts a clawfoot tub, separate, walk-in shower, large vanity and ample natural light.

On the lower floor of the home, guests will find two other bedrooms plus a media room ideal for movie nights. The spacious fourth and fifth bedrooms downstairs are furnished with four bunk beds each, plus comfortable sofas - perfect for kids to share and have a space to play. The media room on the lower floor is outfitted with bean bag chairs and a large flat screen to allow for fun movie nights with the entire family! There is no doubt that this home is ideal for large groups with kids!

Outside the home, guests will find beautiful scenery, two patio levels, private beach access and generous seating to comfortably accommodate large groups in the dry months. On the first level of the patio, youll find a long 12 person dining table plus a BBQ, ideal for grilling up your favourite summertime meals and enjoying them with the entire family.

On this same level, guests will find an array of comfortable Adirondack chairs and an umbrella so you can sit out in the hot summer months in the shade, sipping a drink and enjoying the view. On the second, patio level, guests will find a group of chaise lounges, perfect for sunbathing while listening to waves lapping the shore. When its time to go to the beach, you can take the stairs at the back of the house to the shore where youll find a mixture of sand and smooth rocks to lay a blanket, set up paddleboards or beachcomb. The water here is spectacular for swimming in the summertime and when the tide is out, you can find all sorts of marine creatures from starfish to Gooey Ducks. This beach, while not privately owned, has no direct public access points and its likely that during your stay you wont have to share the space with anyone but your group!

Pendray House is conveniently located at the top of the Saanich Peninsula making it the ideal spot to bask in West Coast beauty while still being nearby amenities, attractions and transportation! Just 10 minutes away from the home, youll find the charming seaside town of Sidney where you can find incredible dining, shopping, cafs and amenities like groceries and hardware stores. While you're in Sidney you can visit the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea, take a walk along the lovely seaside trail or visit the marina and see all the boats coming and going from this little harbour town.

Just 15 minutes south and youll be able to visit the world famous Butchart Gardens and another 30 minutes south will take you to the centre of Victoria, BCs capital city. Here you can find lively nightlife, stunning heritage architecture plus incredible restaurants and shopping.

If youre more of an outdoors person, there is incredible hiking and cycling just minutes away from the home! Head to Horth Hill or John Dean Provincial Park to find incredible hiking trails for all skill levels including a hike up to the summit where you can get 360 views of the North Peninsula, Inlet, Salish Sea and Cowichan Valley. If you want to get out there and cycle, the Lochside Trail is a relatively flat, multi-use trail that runs from Swartz Bay all the way to Victoria.

For a day out, try the walk-on ferry shuttle to Sidney Island, part of the Gulf Islands National Park, which features large sandy beaches and great walks to view wildlife there.

There are also golf courses, horseback riding, fishing charters, kayaking, paddle boarding and so much more in the area so no matter what you want to do during your stay, you can find it nearby!

Pendray House is conveniently located 10 minutes away from both the ferry terminal at Swartz Bay and Victoria International Airport, YYJ. The ferries at Swartz Bay service multiple Gulf Islands as well as the mainland and Vancouver and youll find most major airlines connect with YYJ via Vancouver, Seattle, and other points across Canada.

If youre looking for the ideal balance of tranquility and access to urban centres that can accommodate large families, you cant go wrong booking Pendray House for your next vacation!

What Our Guests
Say About Pendray House

There were seven of us, and we all thoroughly enjoyed staying at Pendray House. There was easy access to the beach. The layout of the home was very well planned so that you could take advantage of the view of the water. The kitchen was spacious as was the dining room and living room. Plenty of cooking utensils. We were all very happy with the accommodations.

We had a wonderful time at Pendray house. We had lots of room and the views were fantastic, eagles in the trees in front of the house, herons in the water at the bottom of the stairs. Our guests from Alberta and Saskatchewan were in awe.
We would recommend it to anyone.
We will look forward to returning in the future

The house was great except for construction on both sides. The noise was a little much and difficult to sleep in. We LOVED the location and being on the beach. The family had a great time.

We loved staying in Pendray House. The accomodation suited our family very well with the bunk rooms and TV room excellent for the children. The views were stunning and life on the beach at low tide was amazing. The children were able to use the small kayaks and loved paddling about in the inlet.

The family really enjoyed Pendray House the fireplace and beach were an added bonus.If the occasion arises we would certainly rent Pendray House again.
Best wishes for the New Year.

The only real complaint I had was the outdated stove. It was very difficult to cook b/c the stove was very tempermental. The other appliances have obviously been updated and I think it would be great to update the stove as well.

It would also be great to have a DVD player in the living room.

We did have trouble with some type of animal getting into our garbage at night even though we did put it in the covered container outside.

We loved the fireplace!!!!

Overall our stay was very pleasurable.

EMR was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. We had a large group of people with a lot of different needs so they helped us find the best rental for everyone. Anytime we had a question before or after we made our reservation they were quick to answer. When we are booking our next vacation, our first stop will be EMR.

There was a bit of a mix up for the greeter. I didn't have her cell number and when I tried the other numbers given in the email there was only voicemail on a Friday of a long weekend of course Seems that this process could be made simpler.

The house was in great condition. Some of the kitchen appliances and utensils could use an upgrade - knives, frying pan, stove and microwave. There was also no propane in BBQ.

We've been doing this for 9 yrs and this was voted the best one yet. Thanks!

Everything in the house was perfect except that the barbecue grill wasn't working properly, and we didn't feel it was safe to use. Other than that, it was perfect. The location was wonderful, and the house was very comfortable.

Great location, cozy and beautiful. Would defiately stay here again.

We had a wonderful weekend at Pendray House. The setting was beautiful. The house had very comfortable beds and soft cozy duvets on the beds. The kitchen was equipped with all the necessary equipment an tools. There were books on the shelf for reading. Lots of outdoor seating. The weather was fantastic while we were there. It was the first really nice weekend in the area so our timing was perfect. It was great for walks or looking at starfish on the beach when the tide was out. We were a group of five women friends from high school celebrating our 40th annual get together. The five bedrooms and three bathrooms really added to the enjoyment of the weekend. The short drive to the airport or ferry made it very easy to get everyone in our group to their destinations after the weekend. A rental car is a must if you plan to see the surrounding area. The only improvement I would make to the house is to widen the driveway so it is easier to get in and out of and possibly make room for two cars to park side by side. The only thing that was missing in terms of supplies at the house was a box of facial tissue Kleenex.
I would stay there again with a group and would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Sincerely, Maureen, Saskatoon, SK

We had a lovely time! Beautiful accommodation. Thank you!

nature getaway

What a wonderfulway to spend 6 weeks of winter surrounded by the natural beauty of this area. It was truly magical. Thank you Candice at EMR Rentals>.

Lorne and Theresa D.

Awesome rock pools

Our four kids, 7 to 12, never got bored searching for sea creatures at low tide.

Deep Cove

Great Stay, fabulous time, property more than lived up to every expectation, however confusion on part of EMR regarding advance access required greeter to wait, and us to pay ridiculous penalty - bad start - and EMR fault

Mark R.

Springtime at Pendray House

This was our fifth visit to Pendray House. We enjoy the ocean side location and the close proximity to our family. Our grandchildren love the access to the water and exploring the beach. We had excellent weather for our stay and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the Saanich Inlet.
The property is in need of some repairs and maintenance and we have some suggestions to make this home more enjoyable for guests.
The back fence is in need of repair as the rails are rotting and the pickets are falling off. The stairs to the water are showing signs rotting and some of the steps are separating from the stringer. This is potentially dangerous. The dining room chairs, although recently reupholstered, have many stains on them and the sofa cushions are spotted and are in need of a cleaning. The silver wear needs to be cleaned. The kitchen recycle and garbage containers should probably be replaced or at least the inside of the lids and containers should be thoroughly cleaned, pretty grungy. The dishwasher doesn't dispense jet dry and the dishes end up spotted and many had to be rewashed by hand. There is perhaps a lot of crud trapped at the bottom of the dishwasher.
The yard and the decks are well maintained and quite enjoyable.

Home away from home

Our 3 generations of family had such a wonderful stay at Pendray house. The home was clean and cozy and had everything that we needed for our 2 week vacation. We loved hearing about the history of the home and talking to the neighbours about the beautiful surrounding area. We beach combed, canoed supplied our own, wandered the quite neighbourhood and basked in the magical view. It was wonderful to be able to bring our four legged family member along with us too. Although we come from different parts of the world we definitely hope to be back one day to add to the amazing memories made.

Sisters getaway for the weekend

Overall, we were satisfied with our vacation rental. However, there are some simple things the owners can do to improve their guests stay. I would highly recommend using an unsented laundry product the bedding was almost unusable because of the strong smell of laundry products. Our greeter mentioned the BBQ probably doesn't work, so we didn't even attempt to use it for our salmon. Please just get a new one! Coffee maker works, but the filters were for a different type of coffee machine. Duh! Loved the outdoor furniture and the deck down by the water. The livingroom sofas were very uncomfortable, maybe invest in some new ones. The bathrooms were very clean and nicely done and we loved the diningroom table overlooking the water. A big thankyou to our greeter for bringing a blender for us to use for smoothies!

Perfect location

We found the home to be very comfortable and well cared for. The view of water and access were good...stairs might need a little help in the future. Its secluded and yet you're close to Sydney and Victoria is only a short drive away. We enjoyed out time.
We were surprised we had to supply our own toilet paper and paper towels. Unusual.

Diane T.

Had great stay!

This property is absolutely gorgeous! A fantastic place for our wedding party to stay, plan and relax during our wedding week!

Christmas 2017

We Celebrated christmas with 17 family members. It was a magical evening and the house accommodated us very well. Very clean and an amazing view. Management company was very attentive and responded quickly to any queries. Lovely location for walking .

Ron Robinson L.

Beautiful Location, Wonderful House

The location of this property was absolutely amazing. Your own private little beach area where you can walk or swim!! It was very quiet and relaxing. The house was set up perfectly and we had lots of room!!
We will definitely look at staying again! Thank you!!!

Tracy B.

cute little house on the ocean

everything about this house was perfect.....except the BBQ.
i was hosting 30 people for a BBQ dinner and was unable to cook the meat fast enough. replace the BBQ it is worn out. I had to cook the chicken in the oven.

An excellent fit for our needs

Our group consisted of 9 people, ages 5 to 70, for a family get together of 4 different households. I had never rented a vacation home before so it was a new experience. It was an easy process. The staff was very helpful. Our greeter was helpful in directing us to a place to eat & a grocery store that first night. We had an issue with the BBQ girl. It was quickly resolved. We enjoyed ourselves we decided we need to do family get together more regularly & would certainly prefer Pendray House if we return to the area and use EMR if looking elsewhere.

Glenna B.

Near-Perfect Property, Pestering Management

The property was absolutely gorgeous, well appointed, and spotless. It was a perfect rental for our group of three young families. We travel every year together, always booking through the two big vacation rental sites. HOWEVER. The rental company pestered us so often from booking through to access to the unit that we would NOT recommend booking this place. I have 42 emails in my exchange with this company. We had to provide our credit card number FOUR times AFTER booking through the rental site. We had to arrange to meet a greeter onsite on arrival, rather than use a code for the door, which they HAD but did not provide for us. Instead, we had ONE key to share amongst three families. All of the parties we encountered were very friendly, but it is completely unnecessary in 2018 to have to have this much interaction for a vacation rental. I've booked dozens of places on VRBO and Airbnb and the amount of interaction with this particular company was more than all the others COMBINED. They also used a combination of signed and scanned forms, website forms from multiple sites, which seemed very disorganized. I was a bit skeptical that the rental would actually work out, so I was pleased when our friends arrived and there was actually a greeter there. To summarize gorgeous property that is horribly managed by seemingly nice people that have no clue how vacation rentals work in this decade. I'd be happy to book again if the owners decided to use the VRBO or Airbnb platform as they're meant to be used - it would be 100x simpler, easier, and likely less expensive for them.

A Delight in Saanich

A lovely home for a family gathering weekend, with children and grandchildren. Kids in particular love Pendray for the tidal pools and the bunk bed rooms. We will continue to come back regularly.

Daniel M.

Perfect for a large group

EMR staff was waiting when we arrived. We had one small issue early on and EMR were on it right away. Beautiful cottage setting. The property was a bit tired looking but fit the cottage appeal. Great beach access perfect for groups with kids. Our granddaughters spent many many hours exploring the beach and water. Accommodated our group that had people from 7 to 87. Large patio with huge table and lots of deck chairs was our favorite spot. Great bird watching. Easy access to Sidney and Victoria and all the sites in the area. We would definitely rent this property again.

Pendray House - July 23-30

The Location is great.
The Beach and Patio are awesome.
The only negative was that multiple people in our party complained that the bed sheets were not clean.

Steven C.

a Wonderful Time

This property has an amazing 'homey' feel to it. This property is less than 5 minutes away from Victoria BC International Airport, less than 10 minutes to Sidney by the Sea, and about 30 minutes away from downtown Victoria BC. We were able to see so much during our stay and we always looked forward to getting back to the house. Had my coffee in the backyard every morning watching the birds - humming birds, herons, osprey, bald eagles, woodpeckers, and rabbits running through the yard. So peaceful, relaxing, and everyone in the party was happy.

Allison D.

A Great View

The location was great, as it had a post card type view that was amazing. We saw whales, owls, seals and dolphins from the patio on multiple occasions. It had plenty of seating, so our party of 10 had lots of room to stretch out. The kitchen had far more accessories then most home rentals do with plenty of room to cook, and dine.

However, it did have some areas that should be addressed. The living room sofas were seen as very uncomfortable, and the area was over flowing with unneeded furniture and dusty nic nacs. It was hot, the location was void of fans, and some rooms didn't have a few window screens. So we left with mosquitoe bites everywhere. Additionally, there were areas that really are needing a deep cleaning, that are beyond what a house keeper would be expected to touch between rentals.

There is a old junker car in the front yard, and a old rotten empty shed. So the front view was less desirable. Further the grill is in bad repair and has to be manually lit.

All in all, we did enjoy our stay. The amount of room was perfect for us. Looking through the available rentals with enough room for 10 plus, it was a easy choice. We could see our selves hoping to return one day. Everyone we spoke to was nice and helpful. Sidney BC, was a hidden gem. Further the short drive from the ferry and airport was excellent.

R. Leon & R. Scott C.

Pendray House Sidney, BC

The house surpassed the pictures. It was very clean and open and the view of the harbor was spectacular. The quietness and location were perfect to get away from the city. EMR communications were excellent in providing good customer service. Sidney is a great little town. The Butchart Gardens are amazing. Victoria is close enough to go for dinner at 10 Acres. Plenty of historical things in Victoria to see. Overall, it was an excellent experience and we look forward to coming back again soon.

Laura M M.

A Gem on the Ocean!

The location of the Pendray house was amazing. Our group of nine women loved sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean or strolling the beach. The 3 queen rooms were very nice with comfortable beds. Downstairs bunk beds were adequate. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked. We cooked in most nights and it was great to have a BBQ, seating for 10 and plenty of dishes etc. Enjoyed exploring nearby Sidney, Island Beach Park and Butchart Gardens was close and worth the visit. A lovely 4 days catching up with old friends!

Very Suitable for Large Groups (Families)

Overall our weeklong stay was very good. Loved the lay-out, large kitchen well-equipped, superb setting, especially for children. Comfortable beds, efficient bathrooms, more than ample supply of linens, cottage temperature easy to adjust, effective. Dining room furniture was expansive and in good shape. We were eight - adults and children. Good ease of access, services, facilities nearby. Approachable, engaging neighbours.

Family Xmas

Overall the vacation with the family was great with a beautiful location. The house needs new pots and pans. It would also be helpful if basic paper supplies like dish soap, paper towels and kleenex were available.

Rick M.

By the Sea

Very nice location if one is ok being a bit removed from the city. Lots of sleeping space and great views from the dining room. Excellent home to just hang out in and soak up the view and play by the water even in the water in December. Good for older kids, games, big meals. Good fit for us.

It was clean on arrival, rental quality cookware, lots of bathrooms, good beds, and great location. Driveway is a little tight but not really a problem.

The binoculars could use replacing. Overall a good rental.

Beautiful Ocean Stay

The house was located close enough to Sidney for shopping convenience and yet far enough away for early morning runs. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, etc., and bedding and towels were abundant. Our vacation was relaxing and stress free!

Jan and Gary K.

Early June

Great house. Our kids loved walking down the steps to their own private tidepool. So many beds allowed each to have their own for the night and not share a queen. The internet didn't work when we arrived but it was a blessing because we spent more time enjoying the beach and playing games as a family rather than watching TV. It should be back up by now. One of the upstairs couches was a little wobbly but clean and may need to be replaced down the road. The piano could be tuned but was enjoyable to play. We felt very comfortable here and the kids said they want to come back every year! Very satisfied and glad we came. Much better than any hotel. Having a full kitchen allowed us to cook in the morning and evenings with ample seating and a great private ocean view. Cast iron skillets and hot cocoa in the cupboard made it feel like home.

Great days in May

Family gathering to say good bye to our parents who both passed recently. Originally from Victoria area so was a great weekend to celebrate there lives.

Tom and Sheila R.


This home was very clean, well kept, management was very easy to work with and pleasure. The house is perfect for a large family with children. We were two families with 7 children combined and this home was everything we needed. The beach and water front had incredible views and made our stay very relaxing, even with that many kids. We would stay here every weekend if we could!

Jennifer S.

A wonderful place to spend time with friends!

The place is beautiful, spacious and has a great feeling to it! The views are stunning, and it is close to shops and lots of good hikes. We appreciated the design, the lighting and the sound system. It is a great place for families. I highly recommend it.

Serena N.

Priceless View

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful property. The view was priceless the house perfect for our group of 7, everyone had their own room.

One small disappointment, we were not able to use the deck at the bottom of the stairs by the water since it was being used to store firewood.

The rental staff weren't very knowledgeable about the property

The home and setting were very nice. The general condition was clean and ready for use. The rental staff weren't very knowledgeable about the property and what was included but overall our experience was positive. If you're looking for a quiet rental within short driving distance to amenities then this is an excellent location...

tranquil setting

even though we had a large group, this setting allows lots of space and privacy and the setting is ideal for rejuvenation!!

Valerie and Terry S.

awesome place to stay

we had a great time during our stay! lovely scenery and a very spacious house! highly recommended!

Rosela V.

Fabulous vacation spot!

We loved our stay at the Pendray house. With 10 of us in all, there was plenty of room to spare. The beach and deck were used every day even swimming in October. The deck was great for entertaining friends. The master bedroom with ensuite were luxurious. We loved the community and would love to call the area home one day.

Al and Kali G.

So Peaceful

Our family of 14 adults, coming from all corners of the US, found this home a perfect accomodation for all of us. The outside dining table as well as inside dining was a wonderful surprise. The home was stocked with many games to play - we loved the Cribbage Board/Table. You made our 7 day reunion special. Thank you!

Jody P.

Great property

I would not recommend the property to anyone else because of the limited parking. The parking on the street greatly crowds the passing cars. Also because of scrutiny from neighbours you feel like you can't have visitors, raise your voice above a whisper, etc. I felt unwelcome the whole time.

Ray M.

Awesome Stay

The pictures on your site does not justify how beautiful this property is. It's very spacious, clean, tastefully decorated and the view is breathtaking! The person that I spoke with EMR Vacation is very professional and patient with me, she have answered all the questions I have. Our greeter was very pleasant to deal with, we called her during our stay and she's always available to help us out. I'm pretty sure me and my family will ALWAYS be using EMR Vacation for our travels!

Family vacation

We enjoyed our stay at the Pendray House. The teenagers loved the closeness to the water. We all want to go back next year.

Great Week

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the ocean either in it or just sitting looking at it.
There were 7 of us and we all had a good time.

Janet S.

Very Nice

Great place to relax , great views . Hope to go back

Greg R.

Great Quiet Spot

Great house with lots of room. We had 4 young kids and 3 couples and most had their own space. The location of the house is awesome for a quiet getaway with easy access to the ocean. The house is quite unique and different with its decor and items. This did become a little challenging with 3 babies. My only hope was to have more practical items- especially in the kitchen ex. small knifes, oven mitts, dish clothes. Everyone enjoyed their stay- especially the little ones!

Pendray House

We enjoyed our stay at the Pendray House. The view is fantastic. The area is very quiet and peaceful. It was a great place for our family to get together and spend Thanksgiving.

Calvin S.

Pendray House was perfect for us

We were a Party of 7 adults and 3 children. We spend a very good time in this house, which is perfect situated to the sea. We recommend this place.

Sabine L.

Wonderful location for Family Christmas Get-Away

Rather than buy gifts for everyone for Christmas we decided to rent accomodations for our family of 13. Was a wonderful interlude from winter-28 degrees in Central B.C. for five days!With a 15 passenger van we were able to explore the area and cityand both grandkids and adults found the beach fascinating! The weather co-operated too so all in all it was a golden moment in time for our family!I heard many times Grandma,this was better than opening any gift!We will savor our pictures and memories for a long time to come!!!

Roger and Carol B.

Pendray pebbles

Great for large families as the furniture is well used, good supplies available with comfortable beds.

Beautiful home, stunning views, excellent accommodation!

This house was great for our family of 9 adults who were visiting Victoria for a family wedding. The view from the dining room, living room and deck was stunning. The fireplace in the living room made for comfortable, relaxing evenings for visiting and the little extras throughout the house made it very inviting and feel like home. As we all arrived at different times from various points in Canada and the US, we truly appreciated the convenience of access to the airport and the ferry. Although there were only 3 queen size beds, the bunk beds in the 2 other rooms were big enough that for a few nights, young adults were able to sleep comfortably.

Great view, cozy comfort, convenient location

We 12 of us from 4 families from Seattle area stayed for 3 nights in May. We enjoyed our stay a lot overall. Gorgeous view and sunset. The facilities were good. The house has a character. We did backyard bbq. Kids loved playing in the rocky beach. Only negative things I can think of WiFi too slow, microwave oven too small and under-powered, and some of the cooking pans are too worn out.

Funeral & Family Gathering from outside Victoria

Enjoyed the row boat crabbing and oyster fishing with our brother in law from the area.
Grand Children had fun with each other 7 under age 4. Excellent location. Lamp in the living room is getting rather worn out should be replaced. We were unable to find the remote control for the upstairs TV but had nice weather so didn't really need it

Lee H.

Pendray House is amazing

Great retreat for large group. We were 13 people and very comfortable. They have everything to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The only criticism would be that the WiFi was a little slow.

Kevin R.

Friends and Family long weekend

Amazing house with an amazing view. It was hard to go home and not wake up to the ocean right outside.

Trevor W.

Family reunion for wedding

Our guests gathered at Pendray House for 4 nights to attend our son's wedding and travelled from the USA and England. We knew it would not be easy to accommodate 14 adults when we started our search for a vacation rental in the Sidney area, but feel extremely lucky to have found this beautiful rental property right on the water. The rental procedure was easy and straight forward with good communication between us and the managers, who responded to questions and were very helpful on arrival. The house is quite spacious and has 3 very good bathrooms, with ample hot water and towels. The kitchen was large enough to cope with group breakfasts and lunches. The real advantage of this property though is the delightful outside space and access to the little beach. Our guests were able to spend a lot of time on the deck and beach, enjoying the incredible views across the inlet with the ever changing light reflecting different colors and moods on the water. The large table out there was used for lunch and dinner and would be the perfect spot for a BBQ. We saw an eagle and seals and enjoyed the tranquility of the neighborhood and easy access to shopping in Sidney. There is adequate on street parking outside the house and some little trails to take a walk and explore the coastline. This house was a perfect vacation rental and none of us wanted to leave. What a wonderful experience for our family and friends in beautiful British Columbia!!

Andrew W.

Stay at Penury House

A beautiful house surrounded by beautiful scenery for my staff team getaway. The rooms were perfect for what we needed and the kitchen was well stocked. My team enjoyed having easy access to the beach and the not too far drive to Victoria for outings.

Unfortunately, neither the WIFI or cable TV worked during the entirety of my team's stay and everyday there were phone calls asking for the owners which got a bit annoying.

Pendray House

The house was great! Initially there were some issues with the alarm, but once that was resolved, it was excellent! The location is great! It was quiet, peaceful, and clean.

Jeff Gutowski and G.

wonderful family vacation

This property was everything it claimed to be. We came from 4 different locations but the airport made it so easy. We would come back again. Even the weather was perfect.
Thank you for the family memories.

Staying at Camp Pendray

This is an ideal location with very friendly neighbours and easy access to play in the water and on the beach. This was our second visit and we're looking forward to celebrating Chrustmas there.

Jo-Ann T.

Pendray House

The location on beach is beautiful, and the house is cozy with everything we needed. A/C and better mattresses would make it perfect.

Brian D.

Winter Retreat

We stayed at this cottage for 2.5 months to get away from the snow. It was a lovely spot, the neighbourhood was super friendly, and the location really couldn't be beat.

Lori M.

Review of Pendray

We had a wonderful weekend despite the weather. The house is roomy comfortable and extremely well equipped.

Patti S.

Lovely house and seaside setting

Thank you for a lovely stay at Pendray House. Exceptionally clean and well-appointed house in a gorgeous setting. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Marianne S.

Great place

Clean and quiet. There was 12 of us and plenty of room. Yes would recommend

Fabulous holiday

We spent a week here, 7 of us, 3 generations from Ontario visiting our family in the area. Everything was perfect & beyond our expectations. It felt like home. The house had everything we needed & was very well equipped for making our meals. The cottage was clean & comfortable. Location couldnt be better! It is a short drive to all the attractions & a few minutes from the airport.
We will definitely plan to return.

Family Getaway

We had a wonderful staycation. The property is breathtaking. The ocean and beach are just outside your backdoor. The patio is a perfect place to have a BBQ, Happy Hour or just sit back and relax. Loved the wood burning fireplace inside house and that wood was provided. Lots of beds available for everyone and we all slept well. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glassware and cutlery. Maybe a bit over stocked with other items. Some reorganization of the kitchen cupboards and drawers might also free up some space for any groceries that you bring along. Not a big deal, just a suggestion. Would not hesitate to book again!

Wonderful Place

It was a lovely spot to reunite with old friends. Very nice feeling to the place. Shopping was handy by. We cooked a lot. A very nice kitchen and dining room combo for preparing meals together.

Relaxing Retreat By the Sea

We completed a long weekend at Pendray House with three generations to celebrate a 90th birthday. The home was perfect for everyone with enough space for quieter types and open gathering places in the kitchen, living room and dining room for conversation and laughter together. The beach in front allows for walks on the shoreline, exploring tide pools and for the hardy soul, swimming. It is about a 15 minute drive to Sidney with great shopping and restaurants and about 35 minutes to Downtown Victoria. I would definitely recommend this home for families or for a group of friends wanting to enjoy a reunion in a relaxed environment. The check-in process was seamless. Our greeter Richard, was very welcoming as were the neighbors that we met on the beach. All in all, it was a great place to holiday at.
