Eagles Cove is located five minutes from the Otter
Bay Ferry Terminal and two minutes from the Pender Island Golf and Country
Club. If you come to Pender by seaplane or by boat you can walk to the house
from the dock in one minute. Shops and the Saturday Market at the Driftwood
Centre are reached by automobile in a short ten minute drive. There are boat
and kayak rentals, car rentals, hiking trails, beaches, and tennis courts all
available on North Pender. Meals out can be enjoyed at several places on North
and South Pender.
The guest house is surrounded by trees, shrubs,
flowers and plants of all descriptions set in an extensive year round English
style cottage garden. The spring garden is especially spectacular with February
crocuses followed by March daffodils (and other narcissi) which give way in
April and May to a riot of tulip and rhododendron colours.
The house sits high on the property and from it
the sea and Salt Spring Island are glimpsed through a woodland cover. The
amenities include a queen size bed, a tiled four piece bathroom, a gas
fireplace, a small kitchen, ample closet space, a window seat for reading, a
built in desk for writing, a television and VCR for watching, a stereo for
listening and, of course, lots and lots of books and music, hardcover and
paper, CDs and tapes.
