Ganges house description

Quiet and private suite on a dead-end lane across from the ocean, nestled among towering cedars and douglas firs (where the ravens live).

Clean, cozy one bedroom (queen size bed) and 1 loft (double bed) - complete with full-size kitchen (oven, microwave, full fridge/freezer, coffee maker, etc.), full bath (tub and shower), washer/dryer, couch, closet, and outdoor sitting area.
Plenty of parking.

There are two self-contained sections to this single story house. The front section is used by Raven Wood Retreat guests, while the rear section is occasionally used by the owners and friends.

- High speed Wifi (internet)
- HD TV, various DVDs
- Sky lights above the bed (perfect for the star-filled night skies. remember, we don't have light pollution)
- IPhone/iPod docking station
- Board games, puzzles
- Use of local guidebooks & maps
- Children welcome (2 max)
- Non-smoking (inside and out)

Relax in this temperate rainforest setting just 5 minutes south of groovy Ganges Village.
Here you can enjoy restaurants, cafes, bakeries, stroll along the waterfront, pick-up groceries, explore shops, go kayaking, play a round of golf, listen to live music, visit the artisan galleries, or check out the popular Saturday market and more!

We are centrally-located: only 10mins north of Fulford Harbour (access to Victoria and Vancouver (via Swartz Bay)), 10mins south of Long Harbour (direct access to Vancouver), 10mins south-east of Vesuvius Bay (access to Duncan and Nanaimo).

Short, daily flights to/from Vancouver and Victoria happen from Ganges Harbour as well. So, even though you are indeed on a Gulf Island, you have lots of options for coming and going!

There are trails to hike, beaches to comb, lakes to swim, and mountains to climb. For the adventurous-types, try tandem paragliding from one of the local mountains with the owner (who is, himself, a certified Senior Paragliding Instructor). Special guest discounts apply.

Well? Sounds like it might be time to treat yourself to an island-getaway and come enjoy the unique beauty of Salt Spring Island. Island time awaits...

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: My wife and I are 40something, tried-and-true west coast island dwellers, who absolutely LOVE our island homes. We are both professionals (Natalie's into law and I'm into flying) and we divide our time between Vancouver Island and Salt Spring Island (with extended jaunts to the Hawaiian island of Oahu). As owners, we deal with as much as we are able and have capable contacts close by for everything else. We look forward to sharing with you the unique beauty of Salt Spring Island!

                      Why the Owner Chose Ganges:
                      We have been coming to Salt Spring Island for many years and always knew that we would purchase a get-away property here one day. The moment you step off of the ferry, you get a feeling for what makes Salt Spring Island so special.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      When we first drove up the driveway, the huge red cedars seemed to welcome us and we knew right away that it was the place for us!
