For many years, my husband and I took our four sons every summer on vacations that involved water, so that we could all enjoy boating, water skiing and tubing. Our good friends bought this Salt Spring Island home and we rented the home from them for 8 years. Then, it came up for sale and we bought it without hesitation from our friends!
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
The ocean views are spectacular and the sunsets divine. The half acre, flat property with low bank to the ocean feels spacious and private. Perfect for entertaining (or not). Tastefully decorated. The kitchen and bathrooms were renovated in 2014. A wonderful place to relax and recharge!

My girlfriends and I have rented Seagates 3 times over
the past 2 years and plan on coming back for years to come. It's a great
place to spend a girl?s weekend away. Seagates is situated right on the bay
and we love to sit in the living room or on the deck and enjoy the view.
There's also steps leading down to the beach if you want to go explore while
the tide is out. We've also rented the Dowry house when there's more then 6
of us and it works out perfectly as the two cottages are only a step away
from each other and we can walk between them quickly. Both are beautifully
and comfortably furnished and fully stocked with all the dishes, towels, etc
we've ever needed. I highly recommend these cottages to anyone looking for a
beautiful, comfortable, relaxing place to stay.
Just spent weekend here with my two grand-daughters and we had a wonderful, memorable time. Each of us had our own comfortable bedroom and shared two bathrooms. Gorgeous kitchen, fully equipped for our cookie baking and more. Woodstove in living room fireplace made for cozy evenings with tons of stacked firewood. Really nice decor and touches. Beautiful views to water and steps from lovely little beach. Big TV room downstairs with ping pong table and tons of board games and puzzles. New washer and dryer too. We hope to stay again as it must be as lovely in the summer as it was for our snowy weekend stay. Thank you.
My now husband and I held our wedding at this magical location! And what a weekend it was, The house had ample room for our guests and the apple orchard and secluded beach allowed for some memorable images. I would highly recommend this enchanting house with 5 star amenities awaiting.
We originally visited Seagates two years ago and were a little bit nervous about returning - it had been so good last time that we were prepared for some disappointment. No need to have worried though because, if anything, the house does seem to have undergone some minor upgrades and improvements. A fabulous location, a beautifully presented property, extremely well equipped and so welcoming. We did experience a minor issue with the washing machine but this was quickly and very helpfully resolved with a single phone call.
As on our previous visit we found the kayaks to be a huge benefit and, after ten blissful days, we were loathe to tear ourselves away from what has become our favourite spot in Canada. We hope to return on our next visit.
This is our 3rd visit to the cottage. Once again beautiful sunsets and incredible weather. The cottage is cozy and well equipped. Thank you for letting us stay and hopefully we'll be back in the Spring.
We absolutely loved our 2 night stay at this home. The view was amazing. The home provided all we needed except a 2nd hair dryer and some fans. We visited with locals on the beach and walked to Seaside restaurant both nights for dinner. The home has been updated beautifully.
This property could not have been more perfect for our annual mother/daughter getaway. The home is charming and well appointed. The surroundings are tranquil and private with a wonderful sea view. We all feel completely rejuvenated after our stay and will certainly be back.
