About the property

Sunny, private..beautiful views of ocean, mountains, and wildlife

This home has it all...private setting overlooking Samsun Narrows, and distant mountains, the house is nestled in a grove of Garry oak surrounded by wildflower meadows home to deer, rabbit and eagles. The town of Ganges is a five minute drive away, and Salt Springs most popular beach is just down the road. The main level and upstairs of this home offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and all the amenities, and comforts to make your stay a memorable one

This spacious, bright, modern new home, built in 2006 by a well known west coast architect, makes the most of the southwest exposure and surrounding landscape. Relax in your luxury retreat, with vistas from every window of sunny meadows, dappled oaks and distant forest, ocean and mountain views.

Just down the street are some of Salt Spring Island's most popular hiking trails and stunning lookouts. Situated in the Vesuvius area, this home is less than a two minute drive to the islands most popular swimming beach, and only a few miles farther to a fresh water lake, great for swimming and fishing.

Everything you need is close by; restaurants, shopping and the famous Saturday Farmers Market. After a day enjoying all that Salt Spring has to offer, you will welcome a return to this four bedroom home with its comfortable furnishings and fully equipped kitchen. Watch deer saunter by or eagles soar overhead or enjoy the sunsets from the soaker tub.

There is a suite on the lower level of this house which is rented out and has its own separate entrance.

*Linens and bath towels are provided. Please bring your own beach towels.

We had a great time at Rambler's Rest and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious and beautiful home that was ideal for our annual friends' retreat on Saltspring. We especially enjoyed the four bedrooms all with adult beds, lovely bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and the great hiking trails in the Channel Ridge neighborhood. The ground floor tenant was a non-issue for us (other than hearing the door slam when he came and went we never heard him). Thanks for sharing your lovely home Sheralin!

This is our second year at Rambler's Rest and we will return. It is amazing. The place is clean bright and spacious. Well stocked with towels, plates, cutlery. 10 minutes to Ganges. We had enough room for our 2 kids and grand-parents. The master suite is incredible.

Great place for a week's family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was out first visit to Salt Spring Island and Ramblers Rest was a wonderful base. We six adults and two young children (3 1/2 and 1 1/2). The house was clean, comfortable and spacious. It suited our needs very well. The location was ideal for exploring the island. Added pluses were the trampoline and the morning and afternoon visits of the deer family.
