Salt Spring Island house description

Sunset Cottage is perfectly named. The sunsets and views here are simply stunning. Sit in peace, quiet and privacy by the ocean and enjoy glorious hours of ocean, island and mountain views, passing boats, ever changing light and birds (eagles, herons and many others).

The cottage sits on a private, gated, sunny acre of oceanfront land with a small orchard and English gardens. The ocean view is the best on Saltspring. It has a lovely wood burning fireplace, hardwood floors, comfortable furnishings, and a private gate and path to the ocean shore where you can walk and gather shells, launch canoes or kayaks and swim. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a bright breakfast area overlooking the garden, ocean and islands. There are two bedrooms, one with comfortable king sized bed, 2 piece ensuite bathroom and doors to a private deck. The other bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed and a set of bunk beds. This bedroom is adjacent to, and has a door to, a 4 piece bathroom with separate shower, jetted tub and a washer and dryer concealed behind bifold doors. There is a clothesline to catch the ocean breezes if you prefer. All cotton bed linens and towels are provided.

The house is best suited for one or two couples, however, it will sleep 6 people in beds. The large living-dining room has wide ocean views, a dining table for 6, comfortable furniture, a flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player, and a wood burning fireplace. Books, jig-saw puzzles, games and some DVD's are provided for guests' enjoyment. There is an ocean-side deck with a table for 4, and 6 outdoor chairs for the lawn or deck. A Weber propane barbecue and Wifi are included.

This lovely, west-facing cottage is in the peaceful, pastoral north end of Saltspring island, 5 minutes from Vesuvius and 12 minutes from the town of Ganges. It is close to hiking trails, artists' studios, and farms with fresh free range eggs and local produce.

Salt Spring is the largest of the Gulf Islands and is an ideal get-away vacation spot. From May to October the town of Ganges hosts the famous Saturday outdoor market where you can buy arts and crafts, farm-fresh vegetables, island-made cheeses, and homemade treats. On Salt Spring you can also enjoy fishing, golfing, hiking, ocean kayaking, theater, and a brand new recreation centre. The cottage is a 12 minute drive from Ganges, the heart of Salt Spring Island, where visitors can enjoy restaurants, pubs, art galleries, and boutiques and the bustling and picturesque harbour. The pretty seaside village of Vesuvius with its warm, sandy ocean beach, charming coffee shop and Seaside Restaurant (great fish and chips and seafood and scrumptious home-made desserts) is a 5 minute drive. Pringle farm, which breeds arabian horses and offers riding is very close to the cottage. These magnificent animals are often in the pasture close to the cottage road.

We hope you will come and enjoy all that Sunset Cottage and Saltspring Island have to offer.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SUNSET COTTAGE IS AVAILABLE FOR SHORT OR LONG TERM RENTALS AT VERY SPECIAL RATES NOVEMBER THROUGH MARCH - REFERENCES REQUIRED FOR LONGER TERMS. CONSIDER MAKING THIS YOUR SPECIAL WINTER OR SABBATICAL GET AWAY.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Nearly retired and hoping to spend more time in this lovely place.

                  Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island:
                  It is simply beautiful and peaceful - a world apart and yet full of the vibrancy of an artistic and resourceful community. You will find world class fresh local food here as well as great restaurants and art and a general sense of peace and well being.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It restores and refreshes and connects visitors to the natural world and the things in life that really matter. To sleep here with open windows, complete quiet and only the moon and the stars lighting the night sky is a delight. Very close to the cottage is Pringle Farm which breeds Arabian horses and offers riding. These wondeful creatures are often at the edge of the pasture beside the road that runs by the cottage.
