About Tracy Harrison
Well, we don't look like Frida and Diego but this picture is pretty close to Frida and her lover Leon Trotsky. Being artists ourselves, we wanted to celebrate the life and work of an artist in our suite. Frida Kahlo was a perfect choice and with her came the Mexican theme which also makes our suite really fun to stay in. Carl has done all the beautiful cabintry work in the suite and Tracy has made and hand painted all the tiles. We experienced the magic of Salt Spring several years ago and have felt it calling us back. It gives us great pleasure to share our wonderful island life with guests. Tracy offers family clay making sessions in her studio to give you all a chance to be an artist for a day. Couples really enjoy the opportunity to make something special for their home too. We want your time on island to be as relaxed and tranquil as possible so we can also arrange massage therapists to come to the suite and treat you to a spa experience with hot rocks and aromatherapy oils. Our dog Banjo and cat Floyd will also be here to greet you and your pets.

Why Tracy Harrison chose Salt Spring Island
We bought our little piece of paradise on Salt Spring Island because the island way of life called to us. It is very relaxing on Salt Spring. After a few days 'Island Time' settles in and the love and joy of our small community is reflected back in the smiles you will receive from local people. Nature abounds here with mountains, ocean and forest rhythms calling us to be outdoors.
What makes this villa unique
Salt Spring is abundant with nature swaying, flying and buzzing by everywhere. Eagles, humming birds, ravens and wood peckers can all be seen and heard in our area. Deer stroll across the driveway and munch away on the grass in front of Fridas Villa. At night the frogs sing from the pond and owls hoot. The stars are bright in the sky as there is little light interference. On your way down to the beach we have a community orchard we all share full of Apple, Plum, and Pear Trees. Nearby there are golf courses, kayaking outfitters, artists studios to visit and many more activities to partake in. Salt Spring has an abundance of activities to do all year round so consider extending your stay.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed for 2 wonderfully peaceful weeks which really allowed us to unwind.
I have never stayed anywhere before, hotel or rented cottage, that made us
feel so welcomed and immediately at home. The lush gardens and sea views as
well as the fully equipped suite really made this a trip we will never
forget. Then there were the feline and canine companions who also welcomed us
as well as Tracy and Carl. Our art lesson was a joy and I am so proud of the
necklace and pot stand I made with Tracy's mellow guidance. We have made some new friends and have really awesome memories of the magical time we spent
