Oyster Shack

Oyster Shack is a lovely, comfortable waterfront cottage. It’s situated literally over the ocean, featuring the best view on the property. This self-catering cottage shares a semi-private large deck with the guests residing in our Prawn Palace cottage.

Natural light floods into the large picture window of this renovated cottage and provides beautiful views of the entrance to Pender Harbour. The kitchenette is fully equipped, including your own colourful “Weber Q” BBQ on the deck (we supply the propane), allowing you to prepare indoor and outdoor meals. The cottage was significantly renovated in Spring 2018.

Outside, enjoy the waterfront deck, barbeque and the serenity of Hospital Bay. Our sunsets are spectacular and unique each evening. Each Saturday at Noon, between May and October, the Garden Bay Sailing Club silently races around Pender Harbour, a beautiful sight to behold.

If you’re coming with family or friends, booking Prawn Palace and Oyster Shack enables you to enjoy all of the marvelous oceanfront deck these cottages share.
