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!

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.

Peaceful haven meets all needs

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing like waking up, making coffee in the Bodum and stepping outside to the deck for a morning at Sparrow Haven! You will have everything you need for preparing your own meals, but dining out is close by as well. Rosy, the dog will tug at your heart strings. She is so lovable!

After spending eleven nights at Sparrow Haven, I feel possessive of "my place", but I know you will enjoy it as much as I did. Very comfy bed, well-outfitted kitchen, and bathroom that will meet your needs. -- Give Rosy milkbones, and she will be your friend for life!

Lovely getaway

Melissa and Steve have a lovely little place on Salt Spring. Clean and comfortable. Enjoyed having a BBQ and a dishwasher! Lovely to sit out on your own deck and just have a drink and read. Our second stay, would recommend and I have!

Peaceful and cozy

Cozy spot very close to Ganges. The kitchen had everything we needed. The garden view and patio were perfect for reading. We stayed here for three nights and our stay was lovely.
