The B&B consists of 2 private suite's, this website features the 'Ridge Suite' (fully wheelchair friendly) please see my other listing for info on the 'Western Suite' VRBO listing # 359230, or see my website for further info.

Touch the Sky B&B is just 5 minutes south of Ganges, central to the whole island.

Come and relax, read, meditate on life, nourish your soul in my private luxury suite that has all of the urban sophistication you may be used to and more. Add a touch of Salt Spring charm and you have Touch the Sky B&B.

From here - explore the whole island! Drive or take the bus south to Fulford, go north to Ganges (5 minutes away), and beyond. Explore the Saturday Market, Galleries, Shops, Eateries and Park lands of Salt Spring Island. Use Touch the Sky to make day trips and explore other islands if you like too.

Here you'll enjoy peace and quiet, the use of your own kitchenette with an outdoor BBQ. Hang out and relax in the sun or shade, watch the dragonflies, hawks and swallows. Deer come and go day and night. Go for a walk along my roads, sit in the shade & relax. Find some peace of mind.

You are about to experience one of the most beautiful and relaxing places on Earth!

I want to make your stay a wonderful memory, every time.

Hello! My name is Lloyd Nicholson & I am the owner/operator of Touch The Sky B&B. Starting my 4th year in the business. I am interested & love people. Plus I am an excellent cook so my breakfasts are really wonderful.

Lloyd purchased this studio in 2007

I love my home and Salt Spring Island, and this you'll understand when you are here. The Island is full of wonderful & interesting people, artists, musicians, skilled crafts people, various yoga & spa centers, fresh local organic produce, kayaking, hiking trails etc.

My place is generally very quiet (except for the odd airplane). You'll get to see lots of deer usually, many types of seasonal birds etc. I am located very close to the heart of the island (the town of Ganges), so it is wonderful for being able to get around by car, or local transit. Above all 'The Ridge Suite' is relatively wheelchair/power-chair friendly. There are no barriers in the shower area and plenty of very strong grab bars. The suite is very spacious, at 600 sq. feet, so plenty of room!

A most welcoming spot!

Three of us stayed here on a short visit to the island and we couldn't have asked for better accommodation. A very attractive, spacious and well-appointed suite provided by our welcoming and knowledgable host (who delivered a gourmet breakfast to our suite).
A few minutes drive from Ganges made for a convenient location.

Lloyd is such an attentive and super host! We had a wonderful stay in Touch the Sky B&B. We never felt this comfortable and relaxed in other hotels.. and btw he's also a great cook! I am not good at writing reviews but what I can say is that.. we are going to visit Touch the Sky again in 1 week again because we miss it so much after last vacation!

Beautiful, Quiet, Amazing

We stayed in the Ridge Suite for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The suite was spacious and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, grilling on the BBQ and spending quiet times on the decks taking in the amazing scenery. An absolute highlight were the decadent breakfasts! Lloyd is a wonderful host and a true artist... from his original works on plexiglass to his cooking.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review Touch The Sky B&B. It was a delight to host you both & hope you'll come back again.

Best vacation in years!!

The suit is spacious and very clean. The property was gorgeous and the sunset and stars blew are minds. We took a gander through the other suit and it also looked great.
Lloyd was such an amaizing host. He was so welcoming and kind. his knowledge of where to eat, hang out, what to do and not to do were spot on every time. (Even where to park for each outing) Breakfast and coffee was worth the nights fee at least. Best french toast ever!
I traveled with my mother, my husband and our two puppies. We had more than enough space for sleeping hanging out and soaking in the hot tub to watch the sun set. The property was very easy to find and Lloyd was always very prompt to reply to email and txt any quetions I had.
I was mezmerised by the art Lloyd has done. I have grown up in a family of artists and I have never seen anything quite like this. So amaizing and wonderful the more you look at each peice the more you see.
I had such a great time here and would recomend this rental to anyone looking to relax and enjoy the west coat. My husband and I are already thinking of when we can be back.

Owner's Response: Wow - that is so special Danielle! Thank you for that wonderful review. You were all wonderful to host, your husband charming and friendly, and your mom so kind, talented, and a very wonderful & fun story teller too!

I do allow pets but they must be well behaved & leashed outside because of the deer. Both units are child friendly with the proviso that your children are well behaved as the Ridge Suite in particular is fairly luxurious, and I often have artwork & sculpture on display.
