Salt Spring Island Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

This bright, quiet cottage is situated on 6 wooded acres only minutes from Ganges, Salt Spring Island, BC. It is the perfect romantic get away for people who need a break from the fast pace of the city. It's only minutes from the famous Ganges Saturday market. A quick ride up to Mount Maxwell brings you to the best views on the Southern Gulf Islands. Like yoga? Well, we are a quick walk down a country road to the Salt Spring Island Yoga Centre.

The owners are a certified Acupuncturist and an advanced Rolfer. We'll bring the treatments to you.

About The Owner

We moved to the island to get closer to nature and raise our family. We want to share Salt Spring with others. What drew us here will probably draw you too: the artists, the alternative lifestyle, the peacefulness, the beauty, the healing, the friendliness. Salt Spring has it all and is arguably the nicest place to live in Canada. Salt Spring is a natural fit for us. We are both healers and this is a healing place. Our healing techniques make a lot more sense right up close to nature. Enjoy any one of our specialties; Acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy, Rolfing, private yoga or the Alexander Technique.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2007

time well spent

we were charmed by the cabin and its nooks and crannies.
thank you for the cupboard full of wood, the large tub and candles, the deck of cards and the delicious, cold drinking water from the tap.

Holiday retreat in the woods

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Happinest. The cottage was cozy, quiet, and had everything we needed. We were car-free, and managed to get around well using the local buses and our feet. We highly recommend it!

Oasis on Salt Spring

  • 5 of 5
Dear Kathe and Bruce and the Rest of the Happi/nest clan,

Thank you for this gorgeous week of oasis. I had hoped it would be good for my soul - but it has been better than I could have dared dream. this lovely space and your enormous blessed skills as healers have allowed me to sort thru some long overdue emotional, mental, physical and spiritual baggage. I am so grateful. I am profoundly impacted.

Blessings and love on you all.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at A Happinest last year and I can't believe I never wrote a review!! Well here it is: From the moment we met Bruce and Kathe, and walked into their lovely vacation cottage, we felt welcomed and at home on Salt Spring. The cottage is rustic and creative, the air amongst the pines smells sweet, and the Island is a joy to explore. Not only do you have all the above, but then you have two of the most talented healers I've ever come across right down the road. Bruce changed my life when he introduced me to Rolfing, and recommended a local rolfer in Seattle who he thought would mesh well with me. My body has completely changed as a result of my work with the woman he advised. Kathe is an exceptionally strong and loving presence who had a profound influence on both me and my husband during her cranio sessions. Not to mention the other local delights of which there are many, including possibly the best and largest Saturday Outdoor Market I've ever been to with a smorgasboard of local everything! And the island itself, so lovely to explore from top to bottom! We can't wait to return.

Up in the Trees

  • 4 of 5
My first reaction was that it was a little funky, but after four days there I did not want to leave! The place has a 1970's hippy vibe to it, but that suits Salt Spring perfectly. From the inside, it feels like you're in a tree house up on a hillside with lots of windows. The bathroom has an enormous tub which looks out on tree branches. It was almost as if I were taking a bath in the trees. Quiet and remote, Happinest is still close to town and to everything you want to see on the island. Our hosts were friendly, helpful, yet never intrusive. We had our dogs with us, and leaving the doors open it was safe for them to wander outside when they needed to.... We'd definitely come back!
