Salt Spring Island cottage description

Suncrest Cottage B&B
Stay 6 nights and pay for 5.
Salt Spring Island's Suncrest Cottage is situated on a quiet sunny 28 acre estate with panoramic ocean views. Suncrest offers the quintessential Salt Spring experience: lovely garden and forest setting, organic fruit and vegetable gardens, deer, great birding, forest trails and amazing ocean and mountain views. The cottage can accommodate up to four people as it has a queen bed in the bedroom and a queen sofabed in the separate kitchen. Your comfort is important so we provide quality furnishings. The kitchen is well equipped so you can prepare your breakfast to enjoy in or out on the patio, we provide enough breakfast food for your first breakfast and lots of coffee and teas. There is also a full size gas barbecue in the private ocean view patio.

Suncrest is a country estate that has been in the family for decades; 28 secluded acres of peace and quiet with many birds, deer and panoramic ocean views overlooking Trincomali Channel, Galiano Island & the Coast Mountains.
Enjoy tranquility in our forest, meadows and extensive gardens. At Suncrest we provide quality west coast accommodation and hospitality while working to have low impact on the earth. We re-use, re-cycle, compost, practice water conservation and garden organically.

Through our sustainable practices we encourage responsible tourism in our island paradise and have earned sustainable credentials for our eco practices. We have Land Stewards status from the Salt Spring Island Conservancy. We have been a SSI Chamber of Commerce Green accommodation since 2007 and in 2014 we were awarded Greenleaders Platinum from Trip Advisors.
Suncrest Cottage gives you the convenience of having a little home- away from home; a place to relax and unwind surrounded by beautiful nature. You will find comfortable furniture, complementary phone call for all of North America, TV, DVD, VCR, Stereo, books, games, binoculars, hair dryer, high speed WI-FI, full size BBQ in your own private ocean view patio, a well equipped kitchen, a bath with ocean view, flowers and much more.

You will have acres of privacy only 6 kilometers from Ganges, a vibrant village with good restaurants, art galleries, music and much more.

We live on the property and are available if you need us but respect your privacy.

You can reserve and pay us through VRBO or by giving us a Visa or MC account on the telephone.
If for some reason you need to cancel a reservation we charge only $30 for book keeping if you let us know more than a week in advance. We will have to charge the full amount if you cancel with less than seven days notice unless if we are able to rebook.
Come and relax in nature; enjoy yourself at Suncrest.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: Maria picking peaches. I am an avid gardener and grow many kinds of organic fruit and vegetables at Suncrest: berries, figs, plums, pears, apples. We share our seasonal fruit with you. I was a teacher on SSI for many years and now teach children to be good land stewards in my I volunteer work with the Salt Spring Conservancy.

Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island:
We have lived at Suncrest for over 40 years. We decided to share this place we love with guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the tranquil setting, the fantastic view of the ocean, birds, gardening and of course growing lots of food. We appreciate being only minutes from town.
