Prawn Palace

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

Natural light floods into your large picture window and provides beautiful westerly views toward 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 dining nook is tucked into a corner, in front of the windows.

Outside, enjoy 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 the full, private benefit of the large deck these cottages share.
