We offer Pender Harbour accommodation at its best - a magical, peaceful place to stay with family & friends.

We are now called "John Henry's" since Fisherman's Resort & Marina was purchased May 1, 2015 and, along with the purchase of the adjacent business, John Henry's General Store & Fuel Dock in July 2015.

To learn more about our entire oceanfront business - which now includes 4 waterfront cottages, our West Coast vacation rental property, deluxe 1-bedroom garden suite, and 1-bedroom studio loft, as well as John Henry's General Store and Fuel Dock, visit the new website we have under construction. On the one page that has been completed you can watch the video shot in Summer 2016 to get an idea of everything available at John Henrys. You'll learn more about the property as well as clearly see the beauty of this place. Our new website can be found here: www.johnhenrysresortmarina.com.

Over Winter 2017 - between large & unusual snowfalls we have been renovating two cottages: Herring Row and Mussel Beach. We've also made a few updates to our popular Oyster Shack as well. All of these updates are designed to enable us to offer our cottages and house to guests on a year round basis. We will be photographing each unit once the renovations are completed.

John Henry's offers cozy waterfront cottages, a 3-bedroom fully furnished vacation rental house, with lower 1-bedroom garden suite and a studio loft on the property above the marina. We also offer 3 RV sites (limited to 28' feet units only) and one camping site. We are in the process of upgrading the shore power for our marina to accommodate larger vessels which require more power. We hope to have that project completed by the end of June 2017. We look forward to welcoming you to our spectacular Sunshine Coast location and beautiful gardens.

In John Henry's General store we opened a 40 seat Cafe in 2016. The Cafe is open year round, currently closed on Tuesday and serving Breakfast and lunch only until we move to summer house. The cottages and house are a short 5 minute walk to John Henry's General Store, post office, and cafe. Our location is a perfect base for hiking, golfing, diving, sailing, fishing or just relaxing!

Boat ramp, small power boats, kayak, paddleboard and bike rentals will all be available Summer 2017.
