Sparrow Haven ~ Peaceful Comfort Close to Town!

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment


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!

Great little spot!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great time on Saltspring - it's a fabulous place to explore. Steve's little suite was a perfect home base, with a nice sized kitchen and a comfy bed! Amenities were simple (no tv) but that helped add to the peacefulness of the place. Rosie the dog was a delight as well!

Quiet, cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Sparrow Haven is conveniently located close to Ganges, close enough to walk to town for morning coffee overlooking the harbour. The suite is clean and neat and contains all you need for a short vacation to explore Saltspring. My pup had fun romping in the yard and learning about the local rabbits and Quail. Hosts were welcoming and pointed out some great local walks. Thanks again for your cozy suite.

A wonderful, clean, and quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sparrow haven is great! It's close to town, spotlessly clean and very well kitted out for a weekend stay. We had some challenges with internet access, but apparently this was due to wind and general issues with the provider, and besides! Who goes to Salt Spring for the internet?!? The wee deck overlooking the property is lovely- cacophonous with birds in the mid afternoon and quiet in the evening. The bed was great, the shower/ water pressure is fantastic. Steve met us as we arrived and was helpful and friendly throughout our stay and Melissa was great in all of the arrangements through VRBO. I wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

Refreshed and relaxed

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Steve and the most friendly dog - Rosy!

The unit is very clean and the kitchen has all the amenities of a good home if you like to stay in and make a meal.

The home is a 3 minute drive from the nearest restaurants, grocery store, and gas station, so it is very centrally located. The backyard faces onto the forest and is a perfect setting to unwind in a quiet area.

The sleeping area is comfortable for 2 adults (on a bed); additional members are provided with an air mattress that needs to be inflated and is in close quarters.

A lot of thought has been put into this simple yet elegant place. Our family enjoyed our first trip to Salt Spring and came back refreshed. Thank you for the comfortable stay Steve and Melissa.
