This charming little cottage was our home for three nights and even though we were under cloud and intermittent rain most of the time it was a peaceful refuge and an unspoilt location for a much needed rest after a week of hectic travel The bed was extremely comfortable - a huge factor for a five star rating Even though we were unable to use the deck for dining or relaxing in the deckchairs the on our last night the sun burst through a cloud opening at sunset and we were given a spectacle of beauty The cottage is jutting out on a platform and has all the amenities and facilities incl top of range toiletries. Even though 'Oyster Shack Cottage"can cater for four persons with a sofa bed unless you have small amount of luggage more suitable for two persons.The 'Prawn Cottage' next door is probably more suitabe as it has a larger living area

A lovely little rv park hidden at the end of the harbour in Pender Harbour. Great views of the harbour and ocean, a nice viewing deck, good clean shower and toilet. Very recommendable. Go and have a swim in nearby Garden Lake in walking distance. Nice food from the foodtruck at the harbour.

Perfect stop on the long sail up the Sunshine Coast towards Powell River, Lund and Desolation Sound. This newly-furbished marina, store and restaurant provides shelter in a harmonious setting with an outdoor deck to watch the sunset, great menu with delicious local seafood, well-stocked store for provisions and gifts, hot showers and super friendly staff. Well worth a visit. Book ahead in busy summer months.

Thank you very much for your kind review. Our location in Pender Harbour offers the chance to see spectacular sunsets almost every evening. And yes, you're very right about booking ahead for moorage in July and August. Regrettably those without advance moorage reservations are often turned away because these months are so busy.

We stayed a night in transient moorage July 2018, and while the general facilities are nice, did not appreciate the price gouging at the fuel dock. We were on a 2 week trip up the coast and back, and while gas was expensive at every fill up ($1.60 - 1.68/litre) every where we went last July, we paid a whopping $1.85/litre here. To top it off, the restaurant was no longer open for breakfast as it had been in year's past. Too bad as we had enjoyed this place on previous trips. We will be skipping it in the future.
