The property is located on a rocky bluff overlooking the ocean, Ganges Harbour and the Marina. Only a four minute walk to 'downtown' Ganges, there are multiple attractions within the small village. There are many restaurants and Bistros in Ganges for every taste and budget. On the high end is the acclaimed restaurant at Hastings House, and House Piccolo. Live music is featured at the funky Tree House, The Saltspring Inn and the Harbour House. On a recent long weekend, they had a Sitar player at the Tree House, a wonderful young fiddler at the Saltspring Inn and an energetic South American Jazz trio at the Harbour House. There are also many art galleries in Ganges and studio tours available to see artists works around the Island. Also on the Tour program are visits to the Goat Cheese Factory, The soap factory, and three local wineries. In addition to the famous Saltspring Island Market in the Park which is held in Ganges every Saturday from April 1 to the end of October there is the Folk Dance Festival April 28- May 2, the Painters Guild Annual Show from April 14-29, Jazz Fest from June 13-15 and the Fall Fair from September 16-18 among many other events.
Year Purchased: 2010
About: I am a local businessman on Vancouver Island. I have been involved in the hospitality industry for many years, creating memorable experiences for my patrons and customers.
Why Ganges: I built this property because I wanted a retreat from my busy life on Vancouver Island. When the Penthouse is vacant I plan to spend as much time as I can enjoying the Saltspring life. The property I chose for Mariner's Loft is the only property with hotel zoning in the town of Ganges, and the views to Ganges Harbour and the Gulf Islands are second to none. I detailed and furnished these units as I would my own home, and created large outdoor decks off each unit to enjoy a dinner party, a barbecue, or just a coffee in the morning overlooking the Marina and the Seaplanes taking off and landing in the distance. I find it so relaxing to be in my beautiful creation that I wanted to share it with others looking for a relaxing respite from their busy lives. It is perfect for longer term stays in the winter, for Snow Birds to enjoy our benign maritime climate, or for weekenders or weekly stays in the Summer for people looking for a well deserved break from busy live
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: As the only brand new hotel rental facility on Saltspring Island, it suits long term stays and weekenders. Our full elegant kitchens encourage meals at home, with the abundant local produce, and fish all within walking distance of your suite. Throw the car keys away- even tours of wineries, art galleries and studios can be reached by shuttle (there is even a horse and carriage available for those seeking a more leisurely excursion!). Our suites are newly furnished and feature paintings and art work by local Saltspring Artists.
