Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: We have lived on the Gulf Islands for over 20 years. Both of us have lived most of our lives on one island or another! My family goes back 4 generations, and Chris' family 3 generations. We are definitely island folk! Love of food, wine and people have led us to opening our home to guests, and we have met some wonderful people! Chris is an extraordinary cook; Sue loves baking; and we love entertaining. Very easy going; we hope we reflect the nature of Salt Spring residents.

Why the Owner Chose Ganges:
Visiting Salt Spring as a young woman, reminded me so much of where I grew up on the Saanich Peninsula; a quiet slow pace, removed from the hustle and bustle. When my son was born, I wanted him to have the same feeling of safety, and community that a rural surrounding affords. Our property is a couple minutes walk to the best swimming on the island, and not too far removed from the hub of Ganges.
