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. :)
The bed is very noisy! The oven temp is not accurate. Very good hot water for shower! The addition of a garlic squisher would help. Very quiet and private! Would. E a tight squeeze if you had dinner guests!
Steve and Melisa very good hosts!
We were met by Melissa at the appointed time and she gave us a great welcome, along with Rosie the dog. The area was quiet with some lovely walks and everything was exactly as advertised. In fact the place was better equipped than we thought it would be. Melissa and Steve have thought of everything.
We had lovely weather all week so we enjoyed sitting out on the deck enjoying the garden.
We were only 5 mins drive from downtown Salt Spring which has everything from great coffee shops and restaurants to lovely shopping, market on Saturdays. We even attended a classical music concert at the Art Centre.
We did some lovely ferry trips to Mayne, Saturna, Swartz Bay, and Pender but mostly we just walked and enjoyed ourselves.
Melissa provided us with plums from her trees and urged us to help ourselves. She was available to answer our questions.
I would definitely recommend this property for the reasons stated above but also because it is reasonably priced, which is hard to find in expensive Salt Spring Island.
This was a great place to relax and enjoy Salt Spring Island, the hosts Steve and Melissa make you feel very comfortable and Rosie was just a darling.
Even though I was ill for the weekend, my wife and I had a wonderful time - it was very relaxing and peaceful.
Thank you again,
Chris and Susan
We had a great time at Sparrow Haven. The studio was clean and very comfortable, including the bed. It would be perfect for a couple. Melissa and Steve were very kind to allow us to squueze our 2 kids in, too (they slept on the floor with our camping supplies). Melissa and Steve were very friendly and gave suggestions of places to go on the island, they made us feel very welcome. The proerty has a huge backyard with badminton, a tree house, etc; it's beautiful. Our kids also enjoyed their super friendly dog. Location is great, just a minute by car from Ganges.
The hosts were very welcoming, warm and helpful. The accommodations were very inviting and cozy and clean. Modern amenities, dishwasher, stove, good lighting etc made our stay extra rich.
We would come again. One thing that we wondered about, however. We are two single women having a girls getaway and needed two separate sleeping arrangements. The property claims to sleep 4, and the queen bed was a 5 star comfort! However, we would have been charged extra for the linens of the second blow up mattress. Just curious why that would be. Otherwise, kudos to the fabulous yard and deck and peace.
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!
