Salt Spring Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2
Central island, tucked away and surrounded by large trees this ocean view cottage is an oasis - ideal for a romantic getaway, artist or writers retreat. The cottage celebrates the art and life of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo with it's Mexican themed decor. We have another smaller cottage and 2 bedroom suite which are also Frida themed. Even in the dullest days of Winter this little cottage shines brightly and has a open airy feel with the high ceilings and skylights. The fully equipped kitchen is stocked with breakfast foods including local farm eggs so you can have breaky when you want to. The cottage has a TV/DVD and stereo with movie and music selections, plus cable TV. It also has wireless internet and cell phone coverage for most cell phones. Sip on your FREE margaritas while soaking in the hot tub on the deck, cozy up in front of the woodstove and watch a movie or relax on the deck and watch the birds, deer and ravens pass by. The cottage is pet friendly with a community orchard, beautiful shell beach and rainforest walk all dog friendly and within a 5 minute stroll. There is a fenced in yard for pets as well. We also have a 1 bedroom casita that is pet friendly that rents for less. Contact us if you would like us to send pictures of this one too.
Cottage Surroundings: The Rainforest walk, just up the road, has a unique riparian system full of birds, frogs and plant life that is rarely seen elsewhere. Dogs are allowed on leash. Beddis beach is one of our only shell beaches on Salt Spring, very sunny in the morning to late afternoon. We are on the sunrise side of the island. Sunrises can be viewed right out the front window from the Queen size bed in the cozy bedroom with closet. There are lots of wonderful places to sit and take in the scenes of nature this sweet little cottage has to offer. Muskoka chairs on the front deck, a rocking chair on the side deck, the hot tub which is sunken into the deck, a table for two on the deck facing the ocean view and a bench in the pond garden all offer scenic places to sit and enjoy the space.
Salt Spring Island : Salt Spring Island (SSI) is nestled in the Gulf Islands between Crofton BC which is near Duncan, BC and Sidney BC which is near Victoria BC. It has three ferry terminals, including Long Harbour that bring cars and passengers in from Tawassen, near Vancouver BC. SSI also has three airlines that bring passengers into our downtown harbour from Vancouver (near the International airport). We highly recommend this for International travellers as it is easy and quick (20 minute flight) after a long flight over here and you can rent a car island. We also do ferry pickups and drop offs for a fee. We have so many customers say 'Salt Spring has so many things to offer, a two day stay just doesn't do it' and the tend to come back over and over again! It has the kind of magic we all seek and can't seem to get enough of in these hectic living times. We highly recommend you plan for a week or longer, especially from March to October as there are many outdoor, art and culture events happening.

About Tracy Harrison and Carl Borgstrom
Carl doesn't look like Diego so we opted for a Frida with Trotsky painting and didn't go as far as the uni brow on Tracy! We love to travel and when we do we like to hunker down in a private location with full kitchen, so that is the kind of accommodation we wanted to offer our guests. We are a bed and breakfast, but we don't serve breakfast. Instead we stock the kitchens with enough breakfast food choices to get you going when you first arrive. We have two cottages and a 2 bedroom villa now to offer families and couples a few choices. Being artists ourselves we wanted to offer our guests an aesthetic and unique vacation rental. Frida and Mexico worked beautifully for us and we hope it works for you too!
Tracy Harrison and Carl Borgstrom purchased this cottage in 1996
