About Eliot Kaplan
We moved to Salt Spring in 2005, after living for many years in more urban environments, delighted by the quiet peace of this rural landscape, and the surrounding sea, and built this custom home, and more recently, the guest cottage.
Eliot Kaplan purchased this Estate in 2005
Why Eliot Kaplan chose Salt Spring Island
Salt Spring Island, as if hidden behind the "veil of Avalon", feels like a long sought sanctuary after an arduous journey! Numerous organic farms, and incredible natural diversity, among nestled valleys and mountain peaks unusual among the islands, along with several accessible lakes, all surrounded by the inland waters of the Salish Sea, make the silence and the ambiance of the island more than engaging! Mountain biking and hiking trails begin right at the back door, and days of kayak adventures can be initiated only minutes from the house.
What makes this Estate unique
The house is a very meditative space. It sits high up on a hill overlooking the spectacular mountains of Vancouver Island, and is eye level with an active eagles nest in the front yard. Miles of hiking and biking trails begin at the back door, and the ocean is a short stroll. The gourmet kitchen is the house's equal, with quality appliances throughout, stocked with Iron Clad cookware. The propane based BBQ just outside the kitchen door will help facilitate delicious meals from abundant local farms seasonal offerings (or the farmer's markets).

Bamboo Grove Sep 2019
Its not easy to find wonderful places to vacation that are dog friendly so we felt very fortunate when we happened upon Bamboo Grove! What a magical house and location. Phenomenal views from all rooms in the house and great hiking right from the back door. Eliot is the perfect host, even with our crazy puppy! We were very lucky to be there for the release of a young eagle who spent the summer in rehabilitation after Eliot rescued the eaglet in the spring! Bamboo Grove is a perfect place to relax, hike, and explore Salt Spring Island. We are looking forward to going back soon!
You are very kind, but the truth of it is that you were equally perfect guests! Very delightful to host! Come again anytime, and be sure to bring Asti! What a sweetheart she is! Best..
Awesome place. The views are sublime. The property is well located. The space in the house is excellent.
Amazing kitchen, fantastic sunsets. Beat expectations
Incredible view and fantastic home
Serene and secluded, close to the Vesuvius ferry. The home is spacious, bright and beautiful with a stunning view from each room.
Bedding was great with beds on the firm side but we all sleep very well.
Hikes out the back door and the hosts were wonderful.
Fantastic location and a beautiful house.
Spectacular view and setting on the north end of Salt Spring Island. The craftsmanship of the house and the design were stunning. Fully equipped kitchen - even spices, oil, vinegar etc. All the appliances you would need. Nice romantic get away for the two of us but also would be perfect for a family or a few couples. Great mountain biking out the back door. Eliot the owner, was very attentive. We were on Salt Spring for a major storm in December ( storm of the century) and fortunately the house even has a backup generator so we had all the comforts when the rest of the island was without power. There is a big beautiful fireplace, so pick up some firewood at the grocery store if you are staying in the winter and would like a fire. Highly recommend this spot. We look forward to returning!
