Beautiful Home, Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
Big, beautiful house, lovely furnishings, all the comforts of home (and clean!) and a fenced yard for the dog or kids - perfect! So glad we stayed here. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Salt Spring - and very reasonably priced too. It really can't be beat.

Simply The Best!

  • 5 of 5
This was easily the best vacation home I have ever stayed in, and for a great price. Where to begin, the home is in a convenient part of the island for getting around yet it is very quiet, it has a huge yard (which was a big plus for our family since the kids love to play outside), is only a couple minute walk to the public beach at St. Mary's lake and just a short drive from Ganges, and is tastefully decorated with all the amenities you could ask for. I highly recommend staying here to anyone considering visiting Salt Spring island. This place is perfect!

Nice Stay at Beautiful Salt Spring Island

  • 4 of 5
We have rented several cottages/cabins on Salt Spring over the past 20 years and this one didn't disappoint. Spacious house, nice bedrooms and bathrooms and clean. It's very close to St. Mary's Lake and Ganges. As we have several dietary restrictions in our family, we enjoyed cooking most of our own meals in the fully-equipped kitchen!

Spacious, immaculate, well-supplied

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a long weekend at this house and found it just about perfect. We didn't spend much time there, but were most happy with the free wi-fi, spacious rooms, comfy beds, immaculate floors and counters in kitchen and baths. Nice touches like condiments, spices, coffee (decaf too!!!) cereal, in the kitchen, soaps and shampoos in the bathrooms, lots of towels. Excellent notes on how to use the place, where to go on the island, etc. If you take a bike, be sure you are strong on steep hills! There's a huge yard and a playhouse for little kids.

A delightful experience...

  • 5 of 5
My peers and I were fortunate to enjoy a week at this home on SSI. Our accommodations were perfect in the sense that the home is located in a quiet area, overlooking a lake, surrounded by woods. A favourite evening routine was having dinner on the second floor balcony while watching the sunset over the lake. We loved that we needed to 'lock' the front gate in order to avoid having deer come in and create havoc in the gardens. The home itself is incredibly spacious, clean and filled with stunning artwork from local artisans. We were sad to leave and hopeful that we will be back.

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a relaxing holiday in this beautiful home. The house is lovely and well maintained and the yard is large with beautiful trees. The location is nearby (5 minute walk down the hill) to a lake, where there is a small public beach with sand; the water temperature in July was great for swimming.
