Overview

Salt Spring Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Escape the city and unwind in this tastefully renovated cottage – perfect for a family or a romantic getaway!! Nestled in Fulford Harbour, you approach the sunny 2.5 acre property from a circular driveway. The cottage is beautifully situated to enjoy stunning ocean views of Russell Island and Mt Baker. Two sets of French doors lead out to a deck that will leave you breathless with the spectacular views.

A designer-inspired kitchen with a gourmet Heartland stove has everything you need to prepare summer meals and enjoy them on the flagstone patio. The kitchen is very well equipped even for a discerning chef. And for those on clean up duty, a 2 drawer dishwasher and large farmhouse sink make the job easy!

An expansive living room with a vaulted ceiling is furnished with pine Canadiana pieces for your comfort. Books, board games and videos are available to help you unwind and relax or share some laughs. The warmth of the wood burning fireplace will keep you cozy on those cooler days.

A peaceful sleep awaits you in one of 3 bedrooms: one with a double bed overlooking the ocean, the second a queen bed with views to the forest. A secret loft is also available for additional sleeping room and has a queen size bed from which you can enjoy the stars and moon on those clear nights. Two newly renovated bathrooms also await you– one powder room and a second with a walk-in rain shower.

Your days can be spent soaking in the sights and sounds at your own private, west coast-style beach or meandering through the forest trails. Whether enjoying your morning coffee on the deck or happy hour on the patio, you are sure to love the outdoor living that awaits you!

There are several ‘extras’ at this family friendly cottage The lower level has a Foosball and Ping Pong table. The kids nook has several toys for various ages as well as a super cool Harry Potter sleeping hollow. For the youngest guests, we have a playpen, baby monitor and highchair (booster seat type) available for your enjoyment.

We truly enjoy sharing our piece of paradise. In the spirit of giving back, we donate a percentage each year to a charity - Free the Children.

NOTE: A small secondary studio cabin is on the property and is home to our grounds keeper.

About The Owner

We are a family of four who fell in love with Salt Spring Island. We bought the cottage with an eye to the future as our children are young and getting away from city life was important.

Why Salt Spring? It has a very strong sense of community and a robust set of events, shows and cultural activities. Additionally, having an island hospital was very important to our situation. Finally, if we choose to enjoy a fabulous meal there are wonderful restaurants on the island.

And the real reason...we are able to create great memories by having a second family join us. The kids love exploring the outdoors while the parents savour an adult 'playdate' over a bottle of wine?!?! Who says you have to wait until retirement.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful cottage and an amazing view. A warm place to visit with family and we're even visited by a family of deer. Lovely island with great little shops and cafes. Would love to come back here again. Taking with us some wonderful memories. Thanks for everything!

Our Stay at Juniper Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Juniper Cottage. We loved the house, the view, the Christmas decorations, the games room, and how you've ensured the house is well supplied including having a groundskeeper who was very helpful. The play area for children on the lower level of the house is also fantastic.

Outstanding!

Outstanding! There is truly no other word for this beautiful property set in the perfect location. The vistas, both day and night are fabulous (remarkable star gazing). The cottage is beautifully equipped and we instantly felt at home with all of the personal touches. We will most definitely be back!

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5

The views, gorgeous. The cabin, huge and lovely and SO clean. The fire place, the yard, the games, that kitchen!! I want that kitchen! Such a great deal as well. They thought of absolutely everything--there are so many games and things to do. They even had tiny vases of fresh flowers everywhere. My boyfriends parents were here from England and they could not stop raving about the cabin and are already planning a trip back to it in March. We can't say enough good things! If you have kids, they'd adore the Harry Potter room as well, you guys should really post pics of it, it's too cute! Oh, and FIVE baby deer in the yard on our last day!
