LUXURIOUS WATERFRONT RETREAT WITH PRIVATE BEACH

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.

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!

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!

We loved this cottage! Not only is it perfectly decorated but it had everything we needed right down to blankets to wrap up in to sit on the deck. I loved putting my music on and having such a great speaker system send sound throughout the cottage. Bouquets of fresh cut flowers from the garden were set out all around the cottage, a sprig of fern and a yellow rose is a delight. So quiet, no traffic and a lovely view.

Place was awesome

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 6 days with another couple and had a wonderful time.
Place was beautiful, immaculate and the owner even stocks spices, coffee sugar etc so you can make dinner and not have to worry about buying your own. Very nice touch!

Would absolutely stay at this property again!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for recognizing the 'little touches'. Having rented often ourselves not having the basics such as tin foil, coffee, tea and spices required always packing half your own kitchen along! Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Excellent view and very spacious

  • 4 of 5
Very good view from the cottage and the patio. The covered patio is excellent for breakfast and afternoon tea. We have six person in our party, it would be nice if there is an additional shower. The loft is really not very safe to reach for adults. It would be ideal for 4 people. There is nothing much you can do at the private beach, just full of rocks and shells. It is good value overall.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Stephen.   You are correct that there is always an endless 'wish list' of improvements one has for a property.  Certainly an additional shower would be nice.  We are planning to add a third bathroom on the lower level in the future. The cottage is advertised as a 4-6 person property.  In addition to the loft and 2 bedrooms, there is also the pull-out sofa on the lower level as well as the 5 single beds.  The loft is clearly not for everyone, hence it is specifically noted in the rental agreement as such so there is full awareness given to the guests.  We have described the beach as 'west coast style' and have two pictures posted that show that it is not a sandy beach. We have had guests launch kayaks, swim, have bonfires and go beachcombing for miles along the beach.  We have had several positive comments from guests with kids how they spent hours playing in the wooden tree trunk 'fort', searched for baby crab and played rock throwing games.  We often take the blue folding chairs (noted in our visitor book) from the garage - glass of wine in hand - and enjoy the world going by on the beautiful ocean!
