Salt Spring Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Escape the city and unwind in this tastefully renovated cottage – perfect for a family or a romantic getaway!! Nestled in Fulford Harbour, you approach the sunny 2.5 acre property from a circular driveway. The cottage is beautifully situated to enjoy stunning ocean views of Russell Island and Mt Baker. Two sets of French doors lead out to a deck that will leave you breathless with the spectacular views.

A designer-inspired kitchen with a gourmet Heartland stove has everything you need to prepare summer meals and enjoy them on the flagstone patio. The kitchen is very well equipped even for a discerning chef. And for those on clean up duty, a 2 drawer dishwasher and large farmhouse sink make the job easy!

An expansive living room with a vaulted ceiling is furnished with pine Canadiana pieces for your comfort. Books, board games and videos are available to help you unwind and relax or share some laughs. The warmth of the wood burning fireplace will keep you cozy on those cooler days.

A peaceful sleep awaits you in one of 3 bedrooms: one with a double bed overlooking the ocean, the second a queen bed with views to the forest. A secret loft is also available for additional sleeping room and has a queen size bed from which you can enjoy the stars and moon on those clear nights. Two newly renovated bathrooms also await you– one powder room and a second with a walk-in rain shower.

Your days can be spent soaking in the sights and sounds at your own private, west coast-style beach or meandering through the forest trails. Whether enjoying your morning coffee on the deck or happy hour on the patio, you are sure to love the outdoor living that awaits you!

There are several ‘extras’ at this family friendly cottage The lower level has a Foosball and Ping Pong table. The kids nook has several toys for various ages as well as a super cool Harry Potter sleeping hollow. For the youngest guests, we have a playpen, baby monitor and highchair (booster seat type) available for your enjoyment.

We truly enjoy sharing our piece of paradise. In the spirit of giving back, we donate a percentage each year to a charity - Free the Children.

NOTE: A small secondary studio cabin is on the property and is home to our grounds keeper.

About The Owner

We are a family of four who fell in love with Salt Spring Island. We bought the cottage with an eye to the future as our children are young and getting away from city life was important.

Why Salt Spring? It has a very strong sense of community and a robust set of events, shows and cultural activities. Additionally, having an island hospital was very important to our situation. Finally, if we choose to enjoy a fabulous meal there are wonderful restaurants on the island.

And the real reason...we are able to create great memories by having a second family join us. The kids love exploring the outdoors while the parents savour an adult 'playdate' over a bottle of wine?!?! Who says you have to wait until retirement.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful cottage and an amazing view. A warm place to visit with family and we're even visited by a family of deer. Lovely island with great little shops and cafes. Would love to come back here again. Taking with us some wonderful memories. Thanks for everything!

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I (with our 5 year old daughter) came over from Nanaimo to get married on Saltspring and rather than stay in a cramped hotel for 4-5 nights we checked out VRBO. This is the first time we used VRBO. Juniper Cottage was perfect! It had a play room for our child, full of toys and activities. The views were absolutely stunning. I can't say enough about this place. The cottage added to our already fabulous wedding weekend! We will definitely be back and we highly recommend!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and one other couple enjoyed a long weekend at Juniper Cottage and had a fabulous time. The location was great, and we loved the beautiful kitchen! We were able to make many meals at the cottage, all while over looking the ocean! There was tons of room and everything was very clean! The house was very well stocked, and beautifully appointed. We look forward to coming back one day soon!

Family friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at Juniper Cottage. All the amenities you'd ever need and a fun basement for the kids to play in.

We especially loved the wood stove - kept us cozy on the rainy days.

Thanks so much!

Similar to other reviewers, I can't say enough good things about this place. It was truly luxurious - no detail was spared in making our stay wonderful. The house is stocked with amenities, from cooking gear to firewood to kids toys. The on-site caretaker was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Loads of space, very comfortable beds, an incredible views and lovely grounds...this place is a gem for the price. We'll go back for sure. Thanks for doing such a great job as the hosts.

Outstanding cottage on Salt Spring Island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I settled in for three nights at Juniper Cottage as part of a week long celebration of an important anniversary - we loved the experience. The cottage was lovely, very well equipped, features great outdoor space and a quiet, secluded location. We spent one day exploring the island and another just enjoying the cottage. Lovely place. Highly recommended.

I booked this cottage for a family vacation with 6 adults. We had an incredible time on the island and we fell in love with Juniper Cottage. We stayed on the island for 5 days and then traveled into Victoria for 2. We all wished that we would have stayed at the cottage for the entire week. Everything was spotless, the views were incredible, and John was so great at responding to me/making arrangements. I fell in love with Juniper Cottage and I'm sure we'll be back!
