Overview

British Columbia Gulf Islands Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2

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. 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!

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. :)

A delightful haven, conveniently located near Ganges town centre

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the cosy comforts of Sparrow Haven for our week on Salt Spring. It was ideal for the two of us and our small dog, and within walking distance (1 km) to Ganges town centre, although the road is steep.

Our suite was clean and cute with an attractive sleeping/lounging area, comfortable bed and bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped for making all your meals if you wish. The view through the patio door to the little deck and beyond to the garden was lovely. It was truly relaxing, sitting on the deck, watching a rabbit or two hopping in the garden.

Our hosts, Melissa and Steve, made us feel most welcome, while at the same time respecting our privacy. We also enjoyed the occasional company of Rosie, the dog.

Thank you for a most pleasant stay!

We found this accommodation spotless and the hosts most friendly - even Rosie! The directions were very good.

It is a lovely property that provides privacy and tranquility. Coffee in the morning was great, and the potential to do more in the kitchen, if we were around more was a bonus.

Many thanks for accepting our request - it allowed us to have a good visit with very special friends!

Haven

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Melissa and Steve's for 2 weeks in April and found Sparrow Haven was my home away from home. Melissa was wonderful, brought me desserts just when I needed them. Thank you. Their home is very close to town, could walk. Bed was extremely comfortable and place was immaculate. There was coffee and other essentials in the kitchen, which was very much aprreciated. Would highly recommend. Thank you Melissa and Steve

Clean, Cute and Comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, cute and comfortable, ideal for a couple, but we made it work for three adults by using a cot.

The deck overlooking the yard and the kitchen filled with all the essentials made breakfast very lovely. The bed was cozy and the bathroom clean. Parking was easy, and town is not far away. We would definitely go back.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Melissa & Steve were most welcoming, as was Rosie the dog. Melissa and my dog Lucy were a mutual admiration group while I gave Rosie lots of scratches. The unit itself was comfortable and well stocked and the deck would have been lovely if not for the rain. Even so Lucy loved the spacious and fenced yard. The location is rural yet still just minutes from Ganges and whatever items you need to pick up. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to my friends.

Perfect for two, great location, super hosts

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! We were delighted to stay at Sparrow Haven. Melissa and Steve are wonderful, welcoming hosts. The suite is perfect for two people, with all the kitchen utensils you could ever need. Very close to Ganges- we walked to and from each time.

Wholeheartedly recommend this rental. You couldn't ask for a nicer suite with more gracious hosts.
