Overview

British Columbia Gulf Islands House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

The house is situated on an acre of sunny, private land. The 180 degree views from the deck and most rooms are of mountains and the ocean. You can see the small town of Crofton and the ferry that runs between Salt Spring and Crofton. The house has three half levels and seems to cascade down the hillside. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and an en-suite with a shower. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a single bed with a sleeping loft and a double mattress.

Also on the upper level is the main bathroom that has a soaker tub under a skylight as the focal point. On the mid level there is a small side deck with a gas bbq, the kitchen, dining room and separate laundry/utility room. There are two large skylights that provide ample light on this level. The living room which has a fireplace and big screen TV is on the lower level which opens out onto the large wrap around deck. There is a completely separate self-contained owner's suite on the first level of the house.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • not suitable for children
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

2 night stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, comfortable, quiet, and the view fantastic. It was clean and well maintained. We had everything we needed to prepare dinner the two nights we were there, which was a good thing since there aren't any restaurants close by. We enjoyed the isolation. You don't hear traffic, planes, trains, or neighbors, and we loved it! The only down side was the sun was up around 4:00 am and there aren't any window coverings on some of the bedroom windows. We weren't concerned for our privacy because there is no one around you, but it would have been nice to have slept a little later. Other than that, we enjoyed the openness - the views and wildlife. We watched a doe and her spindly legged twins one morning as they went up the hill 15 feet behind us.

Brad, the owner was super nice. We would definitely recommend staying at his house.

We had a simply spectacular time here! Our 8 year old daughter LOVED the loft in the single bedroom!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! Definitely hope to come back again.

Nice stay on a beautifull island!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good stay in this house. The third bedroom is a bit small and because of the warmth one of my two sons had to sleep in the living room. The kitchen is fully equiped. And if you like to read books, leave them at home: there are books in every room! Widlife outside. No airconditioning, there are ventilators.

Dream house on dream island

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant place would love to stay there again, shame I live on the other side of the world. The only negative and it was a small one was the door latch to the balcony needs replacing everything else "top notch"

Gorgeous dream property on a wonderful island.

  • 5 of 5

The first comment my eldest (18) said was "why would anyone want to rent this out and risk ruining it?!". Looks stunning, and brilliant view from balcony. Very comfortable inside, had all the kitchen stuff we wanted and more, and lots of visitor leaflets and maps. For me there were only 2 negatives, the door latch to the balcony was very difficult, and the beach was a bit of a walk. Great place to stay would gladly go back and for longer.

Accurate description of property, very clean, easy handover both ends, owner lives below the property. Lots of good hikes on the island would recommend this island to outdoorsy/active people. Local beach stony but clean and safe.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know about the door latch. I have now fixed it, so it is no longer a problem

It is about a 10 minute walk to a rural trail. The trail takes 10-15 minutes to hike down to a deserted rock, and driftwood beach. By driving under 5 minutes you can arrive at one of the better beaches on Saltspring and one of the few that will warm up enough to go swimming in on a hot summer day.
