Property description

** Please contact directly if dates are marked as booked. We have 6 two bedroom suites and a three bedroom Penthouse available **

Newly completed, Mariner's Loft is ready to receive our Guests! There are six two bedroom suites, over 1,000 square feet with a combination of King and Queen sized beds. Each suite also has a full sized sofa bed in the living room. Every suite has two full bathrooms and products supplied from the famous 'Salt Spring Soap Works'

The Penthouse in the 'Crowsnest' is a generous 2,000 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 2 kings and 1 queen.

Every suite has a gorgeous state of the art kitchen complete with stainless steel Whirlpool appliances and recycled composite glass countertops. There is a gas fireplace in the living room of each home, flat screen T.V.'s in the living room and master bedroom, over length soaker tubs and glass walk-in showers.

The suites at Mariner's Loft are beautifully furnished and appointed. A short 5 minute walk from your suite at Mariner's Loft brings you to the heart of Ganges, steps away from the famous Saturday Market.

Ganges is a Village renown for its artistic and gastronomic virtues. There are twelve restaurants within walking distance, with many of them that offer live music year round (including the weekends during the winter), and grocery stores, a fresh fish and seafood store, bakeries, delis and wine stores close at hand for those wanting to prepare meals at home.

Mariner's Loft is the only modern accommodation on the island, offering nothing but luxury to our guests.

Manager info

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.
