Salt Spring Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with amazing

Perched atop a sun-drenched bluff, spectacular ocean views await you at this waterfront home. Watch the eagles soar and unwind to the sights and sounds of seaside life. Enjoy the breathtaking sunsets from the substantial deck that overlooks the ocean vista and encourages relaxation.

A spacious open plan invites your comfort at this well-appointed, self-contained cottage. Down duvets and luxurious linens adorn the king and queen size beds in this 2 bed, 2 bath home. Soak away your worries in the jetted bath or curl up in front of the propane fireplace. Preparing meals are a pleasure in the skylit kitchen or on the cliffside BBQ. Nearby farmstands are fantastic for seasonal fruits and vegetables or locally raised meats, as well as fresh eggs.

Arbutus, mossy knolls and lush salal meet the sea cliffs in this private setting within walking distance to nearby trails, beaches, neighborhood restaurant and country store. A quick 10 minute drive to Ganges and you will find a wide selection of restaurants, stores, galleries and local markets. There is always plenty to fill your days from hiking, beachcombing and kayaking to pampering yourself with a spa treatment or spoiling yourself in the unique shops and artisan studios.

Salt Spring is the largest of the Gulf Islands and is located between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia. It is serviced by 3 ferry terminals and 3 float plane companies. Boating to the island is also a popular option. Bent Tree is conveniently located close to the bus route and car rentals are available on-island.

Come and enjoy the best of Salt Spring Island with our year-round mild climate. We look forward to welcoming you at Bent Tree Waterfront Cottage.

Why Yvonne or Jesse chose British Columbia Gulf Islands

Located on the sunniest side of Salt Spring Island is Bent Tree Waterfront Cottage. Panoramic ocean views that include Samsun Narrows to the south and amazing sunsets in the evening to the west, over Vancouver Island. Set down a quiet country lane on close to an acre, you will feel the calm of a private oasis. Duck Creek trails, Vesuvius beach and Sunset Farm are a few of the nearby activities for you to enjoy. A wide variety of artist studios are in the Vesuvius area to inspire and entertain you. Just 2 minutes by car to Vesuvius village and ferry terminal and a further 8 minutes to downtown Ganges. Salt Spring Island is perfect year-round for a quiet get-away, a family vacation or an opportunity to catch up with good friends. We hope to welcome you soon at Bent Tree Waterfront Cottage.

Beautiful view; comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed two wonderful weeks in this clean, comfortable cottage. Lots of space, cozy fireplace, huge deck, covenient grill, comfortable furnishings. It was perfect for our needs and easily accommodated two couples. And the view of Vesuvius Bay, ever-changing as the mists and sunshine came and went was priceless! Jesse was a perfect host, taking care of anything that came up, promptly. This was a perfect location from which to explore Salt Spring Island. Don't miss a walk in nearby Duck Creek Park....mystical and gorgeous trails alongside waterfalls and pools.

Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I would like to offer our sincerest thanks to Jesse and Yvonne for our wonderful Thanksgiving reunion and retreat at Bent Tree Cottage. It was a perfect respite holiday from our busy lives!

The cottage itself is roomy and beautifully appointed -- both bedrooms quiet and private with comfortable beds and ample closet and storage space; kitchen well-stocked with food, dishes and appliances; living room and dining area both designed for comfort, conversation and relaxation with leather couches, a warm gas fireplace, large-screen TV, and a generous dining area. Fascinating artwork adorns the walls in every room. Bent Tree is truly a reader's paradise -- well-stocked book shelves, and many private nooks both indoors and outside for reading and contemplation.

And the view! Endlessly fascinating and ever changing, whatever the weather. We had rain, wind, fog and brilliant sun during our stay and never tired of watching the play of wind upon the water, and Vancouver Island across the channel.

Our host was most helpful and always responded promptly to our questions. As well, there were many tourist guidebooks, maps and suggestions for activities and dining on the bookshelves in the cottage.

Bent Tree offers such beauty, peace and restoration to visitors -- we will definitely be back. Thanks again, Jesse and Yvonne!

lovely,lovely,lovely view

  • 3 of 5

A modest 50 year old cottage with comfortable bed rooms and baths. Very grand. Shy of dishwasher but I got my finger nails clean. The only laundromat closed in Ganges which was bad luck. Hope Jesse's play was a success. We visited in late September and weather was gorgeous. Plan to return. Raymond Irwin. Sacramento, Cal

Terrific view....water view, ferry coming and going and sunsets. grand.

Fantastic view and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

As noted in earlier reviews, the view is as promised. Even at night with the twinkle of Crofton across the channel. It is in a quiet area of the island and did make a great home base. We had a couple of great meals out but the big surprise was the Seaside Restaurant in Vesuvius. Owners were very easy to connect with and answered all of our questions. Our first time to Salt Spring Island and well worth returning to.

Perfect Base Camp with a View

  • 5 of 5

We rented Bent Tree as our base camp for a week of exploring Salt Spring Island. The house was really very nice and perfect for our vacation. We loved it! It is located on a quite road surrounded by tall firs with a wonderful water view. The house could easily accommodate two couples as it is a 2bd/2bath. We appreciated the fully equipped kitchen and often stopped at the market or farm stands for groceries to make meals at the house. We would rent this house again when we return to SSI and would highly recommend this property to friends and family visiting the island.

Fantastic stay on Salt Spring

  • 5 of 5

Two words to describe this house are view and location. The view truly can't be beat and the covered deck allows you to enjoy it to the fullest no matter the weather. We were blessed with fantastic weather for our visit and spent the better part of every afternoon on the deck enjoying cheese (Salt Spring Cheese), beer (Salt Spring Ale) and cider (Wild Cider) along with scones from Bite Me Bakery. House is set up well and is accurately described. Jesse was very prompt and helpful when we had any questions. Location is great for touring the island. Far enough from town to be incredibly peaceful but close enough if you needed anything. Would not hesitate to recommend this rental.
