I am a local businessman on Vancouver Island. I have been involved in the hospitality industry for many years, creating memorable experiences for my patrons and customers.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

I built this property because I wanted a retreat from my busy life on Vancouver Island. When the Penthouse is vacant I plan to spend as much time as I can enjoying the Saltspring life. The property I chose for Mariner's Loft is the only property with hotel zoning in the town of Ganges, and the views to Ganges Harbour and the Gulf Islands are second to none. I detailed and furnished these units as I would my own home, and created large outdoor decks off each unit to enjoy a dinner party, a barbecue, or just a coffee in the morning overlooking the Marina and the Seaplanes taking off and landing in the distance. I find it so relaxing to be in my beautiful creation that I wanted to share it with others looking for a relaxing respite from their busy lives. It is perfect for longer term stays in the winter, for Snow Birds to enjoy our benign maritime climate, or for weekenders or weekly stays in the Summer for people looking for a well deserved break from busy live

As the only brand new hotel rental facility on Saltspring Island, it suits long term stays and weekenders. Our full elegant kitchens encourage meals at home, with the abundant local produce, fish and famous Saltspring Island lamb available, all within walking distance of your suite. Throw the car keys away- even tours of wineries, art galleries and studios can be reached by shuttle (there is even a horse and carriage available for those seeking a more leisurely excursion!). Our units are newly furnished and feature paintings and art work by local Saltspring Artists.

The Mariner's loft was a fantastic place to stay for my friend and I who traveled to the BC islands to stay farther off the beaten path. The ferry ride into Saltspring Island was scenic and not overly burdensome. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to the property to see how well maintained and up to date everything was. The place is basically brand new! The condo was very spacious and has a great view of the harbor right off the balcony. We spent a good amount of time relaxing on the balcony and watching the sea planes fly in from overhead. The island is not too spread out, so it was easy to walk to a number of bars, restaurants, and the grocery store. The whole environment was very quiet and relaxing and provided many activities nearby. We spent time hiking to the different peaks on the island (on average 2 hours) which provided great views of the area and neighboring islands! We also spent time sea kayaking around the island with a guide who knew the area well. It was raining lightly that day, but I felt that it made being out on the water even more enjoyable, and also had numerous encounters with some sea lions. I definitely plan on visiting the island and staying at the Mariner's Loft again sometime in the future!

I had the pleasure of staying at Mariner’s Loft for 2 nights this past September and would recommend it to anyone that puts a high value on comfort, location, amenities, and privacy. This was my first time on Salt Spring Island and certainly won’t be my last after experiencing Mariner’s Loft. I stayed in the 2 bedroom below the Penthouse Suite, and enjoyed sitting on the balcony while sea planes came in/out of the overlooking harbor. You’re also a stone’s throw away from Moby’s Pub, which is a great place to grab a bite to eat or enjoy a cold beer. My unit included amenities such as a gas fireplace, hardwood floors, large full kitchen, TV/cable, to name a few!

Thank you to the management for creating such a fabulous Salt Spring experience. I will plan on being back for years to come!

The pics tell the truth. This place is new, modern, and prime location. You can see float planes land and take off. The night view of the harbour is really nice. I would recommend to anyone. We stayed in 2 br and had 2 families. the children had a pull out bed in the living room. Lots of room for everyone.

We had a wonderful weekend at Mariner's Loft with our daughter and son in law.
It was perfect to sit and enjoy the great view , had all of the essentials to cook a great dinner
and was just a few minutes walk from the shops and market in Ganges..
The condo is new and clean and very well appointed . It is a very relaxing environment.
Salt Spring Island has a variety of activities that included visiting a winery and driving
up Mt Maxwell.

I just got back from a girls weekend on Salt Spring Island. We were lucky enough to have chosen the Mariner's Loft as our place to stay. It was wonderful!. There were 4 of us and 3 beds so we were able to work it all the sleeping arrangements easily. It is a quick walk to Ganges with numerous restaurants to choose from, a quick walk to the Saturday market... This was just a great location overall. The newness of Mariner's Lodge was also an added bonus.

All of us said that we would want to stay here again if we go back~ And we really hope to go back as it Ganges / Salt Spring Island is amazing. I was surprise at how much there was to do and see on the island.

I would highly recommend staying at hte Mariner's Loft.
