              Salt Spring Island is the jewel of the BC Gulf Islands easily accessible from Vancouver or Victoria. It is a vibrant community of artists, artisans, musicians and people who appreciate living in harmony with nature. Preservation of the beauty and tranquility of the Island is a passion of its residents. Visit the Saturday Market in Ganges, the several wineries, cheese makers and studio artists. Hike in the valleys, explore Ruckle Park (originally the Ruckle homestead farm) and check out the breath-taking views from the top of Mount Maxwell.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1991

              Why the Owner Chose Vesuvius:
              Very few places in the Gulf Islands combine a Southwest exposure, low-bank waterfront, warm swimming, beach walks and gorgeous sunsets. This has been a wonderful place to enjoy a quiet retreat with family, to enjoy the sea, catch up with a few good books, barbeque the famous Salt Spring Island lamb and watch movies. It is close enough to major centres to be easily accessible, yet removed so that there is no hustle and bustle.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Vibeke and David recently completely renovated and redesigned the cottage. They have created a comfortable sea-side cottage that could be in Scandinavia. Each day is a new adventure: off for a hike in the hills, a beach ramble, swim in the afternoon, (rinse off under the outside shower overlooking the beach), explore the local artists studios, check out the live entertainment and art galleries. Return to the living room and deck, enjoy a glass of wine while the sun sets, and plan your next day.
