Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2

PLEASE NOTE: If guests wish to book a weekend night in the high season (May to Sept.) we ask that at least 2 nights be booked. Thank you. :)

Your suite is a completely self-contained and private unit on the side of our house and features peaceful, homey décor with all the amenities you could need. This is the perfect suite for a single person or a couple but we can accommodate more with a blow up mattress. Your comfort is our goal so we have created a restful retreat that you can think of as your home away from home when you visit Salt Spring. This wonderful space offers a full kitchen for your culinary creativity (plus the BBQ outside!), a full bathroom with tub, a comfy sitting room/bedroom and a relaxing, private deck with forest and mountain views. We are conveniently located a 1 minute drive from Ganges Village. Please enjoy the complimentary coffees, teas and hot chocolate. In the village on Tuesdays is the farmers market for local produce and home made goodies. On Saturdays is the Saturday Market where you can get everything from a complete new outfit and fabulous artistic creations to yummy goodies and local produce. Every day of the week, of course, you have many and varied shops to choose from in Ganges and Uptown and Fulford that are ready and willing to meet any of your needs and wants.

Salt Spring is our home, and it's our mission to help you feel at home too!

Nice Little Spot

  • 3 of 5

This vacation rental had everything you needed, was nice and clean and well-maintained. The owned contacted me in advance of my arrival as well as once during my (one-night) stay, which was appreciated.

The damp and chilly weather kept us indoors a lot, so it would have been handy to have a TV, even if it was just to watch movies. We were okay with it not having a TV when we booked, as we had envisioned spending lots of time outdoors and exploring the town. As I said, the weather played a role in our level of enjoyment. Stores and businesses close up early during the off-season, so once we'd eaten there wasn't much more to do.

Clean, friendly, close to town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay with Melissa and Steve. Super nice people, clean accommodations in good condition, close to Ganges and still very quiet. Rosie the dog is a bonus; she's a sweetie.

Conveniently situated, cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A short drive into Ganges and centrally located on the island made this a very convenient spot for island visiting. A warm welcome was extended by Melissa, Steve and their friendly Rosie. Their home is very comfortable, clean and nothing is lacking. Thank you, Steve, for advice on where to find easy hikes.
