Approved Accommodation

Welcome to the Stonewater — the place to call home while you are visiting Pender Harbour on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.

We invite you to join us for some quiet time in cozy and rustic surroundings, or to bring friends and family, fire up our complimentary BBQs and play horseshoes on the lawn. We have everything you need to relax and feel at home: fully-equipped kitchens, flat-screen TVs, patio decks with tables and chairs, queen-size beds with comfy duvets.

Centrally located in Pender Harbour, we offer easy access to all area attractions, including hiking trails and freshwater lakes, provincial parks, and beach access just 15 minutes away. There is a government dock available in nearby Madeira Park and the last gas station on the penisula is right next door.

Whatever brings you to the Sunshine Coast, deciding where to stay is easy. Come home to the Stonewater.

Stonewater, 13483 Sunshine Coast Hwy, Madeira Park, Sunshine Coast

We are conveniently located along the Sunshine Coast Highway (Hwy 101) in Pender Harbour. Highway 101 connects communities along the coast, running from the ferry from Vancouver to the ferry to Powell River.

The ferry from Vancouver leaves from the Horseshoe Bay terminal, which you reach by taking the Trans-Canada highway through West Vancouver, and it arrives at the Langdale dock 40 minutes later. The drive up the Coast is windy but interesting and picturesque. You will reach us in an hour’s time but don’t despair! There are cafes, and beaches, and shopping, and galleries, and restaurants, and marinas along the way.

The ferry from Powell River docks at Earl’s Cove, after a stunning trip of 50 minutes. From there it is a 30 minute drive to us. If you’re running low on fuel, gas up in Powell River because there isn’t another station until you reach the one that is right next to us. The road from the Earl’s Cove terminal is very windy so drive with caution.

Ferry schedule


Snuggle under the duvet and sink into a good night’s sleep on one of our Queen size beds. Or put your feet up and watch a favourite show on the flat-screen TV. Your room is stocked with lots and lots of coffee, tea, decaf, sugar and cream so splurge! If you feel like cooking go ahead. And don’t do the dishes right away ‘cause there are more than enough. Be on vacation, rebel! How about lounging on the patio deck or scrunching your toes in the grass that’s right off your deck? We’re pet friendly (oh, we’re children friendly too!) so bring your beloved member of your family along and let them scrunch their toes in the grass too.

All friendly pets are welcome and the rate is $15 per night.

We offer Senior, Commercial, large group rates and discounted rates for extended stays.

We are ideally suited for large groups and the grounds are perfect for parties, reunions, weddings and for dancing under the moon. We have experienced event planners on staff who would love to help you plan your event.

Dear Terry,

Stonewater is not your average motel. The owners' and managers' love for the establishment and respect for the guest experience shines through in many ways. The grounds are lovely and tidy. the rooms are breezy, fresh and clean. With a well equipped kitchen, on site firepit and BBQ there is something for every guest. These and other personal touches, along with owners' unending care throughout my stay, equals that of the 4 and 5 star hotels I regularly frequent for business purposes. In fact, in some ways, The Stonewater exceeds 4 and 5 start service.


Dear Terry,

I and the other eight in the crowd want to thank you for the lovely motel of yours we stayed at last Tuesday night. We decided to stay only the one night but now reflecting, we wished to have stayed two. A great coastline. A lovely spot to enjoy.The rooms and deck were really nice and we certainly appreciated the barbecue you provided. We also noticed the detailing that you put into the rooms.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in one of your units this past weekend.We were having dinner on Friday night at the Golf Course and the staff there suggested we try to get a room at Stonewater as we were wondering where a nice place to stay would be. We were lucky enough to get the last available unit # 101.
This unit has to be one of the most well stocked and cleanest units we have ever been in. It was a true delight and it was so well decorated. Very nice and what a treat. We both want to pass on our compliments for a job well done to you and your staff and if we or any of our friends are heading up to Garden Bay area again we will be sure to tell them to book ahead and stay at Stonewater.

Thanks again!
Brock and Karen


We are looking forward to hearing from you.
