We are centrally-located: only 10mins north of Fulford Harbour (access to Victoria and Vancouver (via Swartz Bay)), 10mins south of Long Harbour (direct access to Vancouver), 10mins south-east of Vesuvius Bay (access to Duncan and Nanaimo).
Short, daily flights to/from Vancouver and Victoria happen from Ganges Harbour as well. So, even though you are indeed on a Gulf Island, you have lots of options for coming and going!
There are trails to hike, beaches to comb, lakes to swim, and mountains to climb. For the adventurous-types, try tandem paragliding from one of the local mountains with the owner (who is, himself, a certified Senior Paragliding Instructor). Special guest discounts apply.
Well? Sounds like it might be time to treat yourself to an island-getaway and come enjoy the unique beauty of Salt Spring Island. Island time awaits...

About Jayson Biggins
My wife and I are 40something, tried-and-true west coast island dwellers, who absolutely LOVE our island homes. We are both professionals (Natalie's into law and I'm into flying) and we divide our time between Vancouver Island and Salt Spring Island (with extended jaunts to the Hawaiian island of Oahu). As owners, we deal with as much as we are able and have capable contacts close by for everything else. We look forward to sharing with you the unique beauty of Salt Spring Island!
Jayson Biggins purchased this house in 2012
Why Jayson Biggins chose Salt Spring Island
We have been coming to Salt Spring Island for many years and always knew that we would purchase a get-away property here one day. The moment you step off of the ferry, you get a feeling for what makes Salt Spring Island so special.
What makes this house unique
When we first drove up the driveway, the huge red cedars seemed to welcome us and we knew right away that it was the place for us!
