Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: For many years, my husband and I took our four sons every summer on vacations that involved water, so that we could all enjoy boating, water skiing and tubing. Our good friends bought this Salt Spring Island home and we rented the home from them for 8 years. Then, it came up for sale and we bought it without hesitation from our friends!

Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island:
The ocean views are spectacular and the sunsets divine. The half acre, flat property with low bank to the ocean feels spacious and private. Perfect for entertaining (or not). Tastefully decorated. The kitchen and bathrooms were renovated in 2014. A wonderful place to relax and recharge!

The ocean views are spectacular and the sunsets divine. The half-acre, flat property with low bank to the ocean feels spacious and private. Perfect for entertaining (or not). Tastefully decorated. The kitchen and bathrooms were renovated in 2014. A wonderful place to relax and recharge!
