Walk to Everything in Town. On the water, large yard, cozy, queen size bedroom, fully equipped apartment, walks out to the garden and beach. You can stroll down to all the amazing shops and events from your doorstep, or walk right out your door to the beach. Great Kayacking too. This is a one bedroom suite, that is great for a couple, however, if you do have children we provide fold out mattresses to place in the spacious living room. The Garden Suite also has the Terrace Suite above it if you are in need of two units. The Terrace Suite is vrbo # 408171. Please note that we endeavour to make your stay as nice as possible and have taken many measures to accomplish this as noted by our reviews from guests. Please know that this is a suite with a suite above it and although we let our guests above know that their are guests below... some sound can travel being an older building.

Great location and view.
We would definitely stay here again. Loved the location within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and more. Sitting outside enjoying this view every morning was breathtaking. The atmosphere when we arrived was very welcoming.
Lovely place and so comfortable - would love to go back!
My husband and I loved staying in the downstairs apartment of this sweet cottage. We were exhausted from our all day journey from KY to Salt Spring Island and we were immediately greeted with welcoming lighting and music in the cottage. We were able to relax immediately and fell asleep in one of the most comfortable beds we had ever slept in. We got up at 6 am each morning just to enjoy the beautiful sunrise that happily greeted us EVERY morning of our stay. Everything about the cottage is comfortable and promotes relaxation...from the sunny kitchen to the artwork to the large sauna-type bath tub. It's the perfect place for a romantic getaway for 2 within walking distance of shopping and restaurants, grocery, adult beverages and (best of all and right across the street) coffee! We really appreciated the little nuances and decor around the cottage - poppies in the bathroom, eggplant-colored large, comfy couch and chair, starfish basket on the coffee table (where we kept car keys, maps, and other easily misplaced things during our stay), and the available beach chairs. We also enjoyed the classical ditty coming from the washer/dryer when completing their cycles - was that Schubert's Trout Quintet? We loved our stay and hated to leave. Definitely want to come back!
Ganges home away from home!
Excellent! Perfect access to everything in Ganges as well as clean and homey. Would recommend to anyone else considering staying here🤓
All time favorite
We loved it. A perfect location to all you need on the island. The cottage is amazing with the sunniest kitchen you will ever see. We plan on making it an annual stay.
Enjoyed our visit to Salt Spring Island. The cottage was as advertised. It was clean, cozy and nicely furnished. We were a little disappointed that the "Wifi" stopped working after 3 days. Could be a problem if you are on a "working vacation". The bathtub could use a grab bar to assist getting in and out safely. The guest staying above our unit were quiet and didn't disturb us at all. The town is quite nice with lots of little shops to explore. All in all, a great little get-away spot. We would stay there again.
Great view but not great for older travellers.
Nice view in this apartment and it's close to activities in Ganges. It also has a spacious and well equipped kitchen, although its windows lack blinds/curtains, so blindingly bright light streams in from the east in the a.m.
There is no soundproofing between the floors so if someone snores in the suite above you, you'll not get sleep. Further, the place is not well-suited to anyone with mobility issues nor anyone sensitive to the cold. The toilet is low and needs a bar set near it and the entrance to the large tub is deep and hard to navigate. We had the heat up full blast the whole time (in April!). The blankets were damp. Upon returning home, our clothes smell like mildew after having had contact with the couch.
We were saddened to see this review but have jumped on the issues this traveler felt. Our cleaning crew is amazing but obviously something happened on this stay that needed to be addressed and was. Yes the building is older and lovely and sunny in the summer months. We’ll add more heat ideas for the shoulder and winter months.
