About Kingfisher Cove

Kingfisher Cove is a 3.5 acre private oceanfront property located on the north end of South Pender Island on Ainslie Point Road. The property faces Bedwell Harbour and shares a boundary with Beaumont Marine Park which is now part of the Southern Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. The property is forested and very private. There is a dock and deep moorage. Catch fresh crab off the dock!

The cottage is the only residence on the property and so you have all 3.5 acres to yourself! The main floor of the cottage is approximately 600 square feet and the lower level is a similar size and there are two very large decks overlooking the sea, one off each level.  There is also the sleeping loft of about 120 square feet with a queen size bed and another queen bed in the main bedroom on the lower level. The sofa on the main floor opens into a comfortable queen size bed.

The majority of bookings are for a week or longer but we also accept minimum stay bookings of 5 nights if they can be accommodated within our schedule. For couples or other parties of 2 who feel they can manage with the main floor and the sleeping loft, a discount is available. In this case, the lower level will be locked but not used by anyone else. 

A gas barbecue, dishes and cooking utensils, towels and linens are provided. The cook stove is propane gas and there is also a wood stove for a cozy open fires as necessary in the autumn and winter.  Fire restrictions apply in the summer, island wide, and by personal policy at our cabin.

A favourite thing for honeymooners, and others, is the antique iron bathtub on the lower deck.     

At Kingfisher Cove, we recycle, reuse,  compost or return nearly everything.  Be prepared to respect our composting and recycling system. For the most part residents of the Gulf Islands use similar systems as the island has no landfill and most people are very conscious of the reality that we are living in an environmentally sensitive National Park setting. We are generally a low tech place, except for our high tech composting toilet in our beautiful bathroom with a shower that overlooks the sea. 

There are many nearby hiking trails and beach accesses in addition to our own. Our property and waterfront area are frequented by hummingbirds (March until late July); eagles, great blue heron; mink; otter; seals; and many other birds and marine wildlife. During May to late October one can sit on the rocks at Gowland Point or at Brooks Point and watch for resident pods of Orcas that frequent Boundary Pass, Swanson Channel, etc. The Pender Islands have no squirrels, no skunks and no bears or cougar but raccoons have recently been imported and are not native. Our summer sunsets are amazing and for those who love the night sky, this is as good as it gets!
