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.

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.

A special place on a special island

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights here in April and were delighted with the experience. The host greeted us upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. The house is an older property but is immaculate and spacious. The covered deck is huge and offers an unbelievable view. Whether sitting in the comfy living room or cooking in the well equipped kitchen there was always that great view. The living room was cozy with a gas fireplace and comfy furniture. There were two bedrooms - the master bedroom had a kingsize bed which ensured a restful night. There was lots of extra space and this would make a great family vacation spot. The flat, open back yard would provide running around space for kids. We loved watching the eagles on their daily fly by the balcony and the tiny ferry heading to Vesuvius. Great for seniors although there are stairs to get into the place. Excellent value.

Wonderful stay !

  • 5 of 5

Bent tree has everything u are looking for a relaxing stay and more. The cottage lacked nothing , they have thought of every detail. The spacious deck with the ocean view is a great way to start the day with a cup of coffee and end the day with a lovely beverage. Loved the king size bed, plush towels and the toiletries ...had to buy some to take home. Great place for just a couple to get away or a family.
