Quiet, cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

We, four adults and four dogs, enjoyed the Fernwood beach house. It had everything we were looking for, a quiet, pet friendly location. The two bedrooms were comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need and we spent most of our time on the deck, looking out at the ocean. It's about a twenty minute drive to town and there's plenty to see on Saltspring Island. We visited a winery, brewery, and cheese maker and enjoyed our purchases on the deck in the evening.

Loved the Fernwood Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Fernwood Beach House. We loved the house and it was perfect for our needs. It is nicely furnished and decorated and the kitchen is large and has everything one could need to make a meal. The beds were comfortable with nice linens and there were ample and good quality towels, dish cloths, etc. We enjoyed sitting on the deck for meals and star-gazing at night. We saw hummingbirds, grouse and bunnies from the deck. We walked along the beach just below and went to the wharf in the evenings to watch the sunset. We had coffee at the Fernwood Cafe a short walk away. Our two adult sons joined us for a couple of nights and the house was perfect for the four of us. We went swimming at St Mary's Lake which is a short drive away and into Ganges, which is also nearby. We loved the honour veggie stands that were everywhere. The location of the cottage is excellent and the road that its on is quiet and fine for walking and cycling. I would definitely book again and found Trinda helpful and pleasant to work with.

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks at Trinda's lovely cottage on Saltspring Island. It was our first time on SSI and I didn't really know what to look for. The place turned out to be perfect for our needs. It was convenient to Ganges (less than 10 minutes drive) and very close to St Mary's Lake where the kids enjoyed the warmer lake water and the VERY fun tree rope swing! The kids spent a TON of time beach combing on the beach at low tide finding a plethora of tiny crabs, sea shells, sand dollars and even star fish! It was a short 5 minute walk to the Fernwood cafe where you could indulge in a cappuccino or latte. We spent virtually every morning enjoying coffee on the large deck and every evening with candles and red wine. We were lucky enough to watch some of the Perseid Meteor shower on August 13th and 14th. Spectacular! Trinda brought us a large stainless bowl full of delicious fresh dungeness crab that tasted incredible... The icing on the cake was the pod of Killer Whales that swam past on the morning of August 13th..... amazing to see and we were able to drive up the road and view them for over an hour. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone.

Checks all the boxes. A rare find.

  • 5 of 5

Finding the perfect cottage rental on Saltspring can be a little tricky. Trying to find something that is close to the water, close to Ganges, large enough for a family of 5, private enough to enjoy some quite time, and budget friendly is not easy. So finding this cottage and working with Trinda was a real treat. We had all the space we needed and the cottage was clean and comfortable. The kids had a great time either out on the front deck or down on the beach and we were able to get a little relaxing in. We've stayed on Saltspring a few times and have spent more for a lot less. So if you're looking for a comfortable cottage in a great location with a great host you've found the right place.

Family of 4 with 2 small dogs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here mid June after talking with Trina about our concern that there were no reviews. She answered all our questions and we decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. We immediately saw the red umbrella on a large deck great for family entertaining. The inside was well layed out wiith enough room for 4 adults and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! The house was in a quiet location about 5-10 min from Ganges so a great base for our daily outings. Morning coffee looking at the ocean or watching the many bird species that visit. A short walk to a pier for beach combing or a restaurant for a coffee . The cabin had everything we needed and Trina checked in a few times to see if we needed anything. If there was a negative it was that the cable was not working . We have already recommended this place to our friends and would book again.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with friends in early June. Lovely place! Trina was very helpful and even dropped off toys for the kids. The place was spacious and had well enough room for 4 adults and 4 kids. The deck was a great place to hang out and the ocean view was lovely! We would definitely book again!
