Recent Salt Spring Island reviews

  • A peaceful place to get away!

    "We stayed here for a week recently and woke up to deer grazing out front on 2 of the mornings. It is unbelievably quiet, and the views are absolutely stunning! We sat out on the deck every morning with a cup of coffee watching the woodpeckers, taking in the view, and enjoying the ferry making its way to and from Fulford Harbour each day. This never got old! And each night, we'd take our glass of wine outside and do the same thing. At dusk or just before the sun is disappearing, the bats come out and they are amazing to watch swoop for bugs. We came to Salt Spring for a quiet and restful vacation (even though the hubby had to do some work), and that's what we got! The cabin includes everything you need to be comfortable for a week, and a strong WiFi internet connection. We also enjoyed having Netflix! Some of the restaurants we tried: Seaside at Vesuvius - VERY YUMMY mussels!!; Tree House Cafe - great food and neat place to eat; Rock Salt at Fulford Harbour - wonderful view and friendly waitress; Fernwood Cafe - good for breakfast out; Moby's Pub - great food and great place to meet some locals and enjoy watching your favourite sports on big screen TVs. Absolutely go whale watching with Ian (1-888-656-9878). He knows where those whales are and if there are lots of whale watching boats out, he seems to be the guy who just knows where they will pop up next. Its a red zodiac, and he's parked at Ganges harbour (his office is beside Salt Spring Adventures). We saw 4 transient killer whales on our venture - spectacular! He won't go out if there's no whales. Also a must do is the Farmer's Market on Saturday - lots of fun! The owner Judy was great to deal with."

  • Very comfortable cottage on a idyllic island

    "We stayed in Eagle View Cottage for a week (2 adults, 2 children aged 12 and 10) in August. The cottage was all that we had hoped - very clean, just the right size for the 4 of us, very comfortable beds, quiet location but in easy reach of Ganges. The kitchen is well equipped and the chickens outside the kitchen window were great entertainment. We were fortunate that the tide was in early evening when we were there so we made full use at that time of day of the kayak provided. Hot tub was also great though the weather was so good when we were there we really needed a cold tub! Kelly and Lionel were very kind and helpful hosts. They are just next door and available if you need information or assistance but were never intrusive. We had a lovely holiday on Salt Spring. There is so much to do and see that you can easily occupy a week here. Also it's rare to find a place with such an open, friendly and welcoming atmosphere."

  • Beautiful Salt Spring Island

    "We are a family of four from New Zealand and we loved our stay at Juniper Cottage. The location is perfect, quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to markets for farm-fresh supplies. The cottage gave us loads of space to spread out while also drawing us together for meals in the beautiful kitchen and deck area. The cottage has been lovingly updated and very well stocked - we had everything we needed from a coffee bean grinder to all the pans and dishes for roasted lamb dinner, to towels, linens, and blankets for snuggling by the fire. The teenagers loved the foosball, ping pong, and stove for s'mores. We all loved the stunning view and private beach. The owners have compiled a very helpful binder of information on the cottage, local restaurants, outdoor activities. We went hiking, beach combing and sea kayaking and saw seals, otters, eagles, porpoise, white tailed deer, numerous other bird life and sea life right at our doorstep. Our time on SSI was magic and we will be back to Juniper Cottage!!"

  • Great value, welcoming hosts, romantic and private setting.

    "This was our second time at Tranquility Cottage. We chose this location for a number of reasons: proximity to dining options, peacefulness, privacy, serenity, access to hiking opportunities, and a hot tub to unwind and relax in at day's end. We were not disappointed. Being avid walkers, the 3.5 km trek to town was minor and helped us work off the dinners and wine from the many great dining venues in Ganges. There are many hiking trails on Salt Spring Island, ranging in difficulty from easy to strenuous. Kim and Philip provided maps and literature in the cottage to assist us in our choices for hiking adventures. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and even a welcome basket containing fresh eggs, bread, organic milk, juice, fruit, and preserves was there upon our arrival. There was a plethora of videos, music, games, and reading material available to fill in those few minutes we didn't spend relaxing. Kim and Philip were great hosts and ensured that we enjoyed our stay while affording us our privacy. It was a distinct pleasure to recline in the hot tub under the stars, all the while being serenaded by a chorus of frogs. A stellar opportunity to relax and rejuvenate in this bucolic setting. We highly recommend Tranquility Cottage. Cheers! Marg and Jim, Victoria, B.C."
