On the Sunshine Coast, “the province's most celebrated year-round recreation center,” where “the scenery is spectacular” (Frommer’s), Painted Boat Resort offers a waterfront retreat within easy reach of Vancouver daytrippers. Teeming with outdoor adventure, the area's temperate climate allows for all-season hiking, horseback riding, golfing and fishing.

Nestled in the small town of Madeira Park and perched over Pender Harbour, the resort boasts surprisingly spacious villas with expansive water views from private decks -- which have their own barbecues. In addition to pleasant finishes like stone fireplaces and soaker tubs, villas also come equipped with full kitchens, separate living and dining areas, and free Wi-Fi.

The on-site spa is a garden oasis; opt for the Spa Garden treatment and gain access to the plunge pool, hot tub with waterfall, dry sauna and glacial shower. All guests can enjoy a seasonal infinity pool and fitness center.

The resort's Lagoon Restaurant overlooks the marina and focuses on serving fresh ingredients from the coastal region. The restaurant is closed until March 29; however, Painted Boat staff can offer suggestions for venturing out to explore local fare. The resort is also equipped to provide outdoor activity with kayak and paddleboard rentals on site.
