"My husband and I enjoyed our weeklong stay at the Cottage of Tranquility. Set on a hill above the owner's farm, surrounded by tall trees and a view down to the meadow, it truly is a tranquil place. I loved sitting on the porch each morning surrounded by nature with only the clucking of chickens and birdsong to be heard. Such a welcome change for a city dweller.
The cottage is spacious, tastefully decorated, clean, and comfortable. We appreciated the welcome basket of breakfast supplies and also having access to the extensive DVD collection.
Having our own, private hot tub was a real bonus. Whether soaking by night, or late afternoon after exploring the island, the hot tub was such a treat, especially being outdoors with vines and trees surrounding it.
The cottage is just a few minutes drive from the hub of the island activity in Ganges. If walking, one could do it in 30 -45 minutes depending on your pace.
Philip and Kim are friendly hosts and we enjoyed spending some time with them on our only rainy day.
We chose this vacation cottage because we wanted a peaceful self-catering vacation home with outdoor space to enjoy and we certainly were not disappointed. I would give it four and a half star rating."

Great Place with oceanview and direct beach access
"We stayed 3 nights at Tantramar and were very satisfied with the accomodation. Our little 22 months old son enjoyed everything the house had to offer - the generous garden with the deck, the little playground with a slide and swing and of course the beach which had clear shallow water on the first day. Beds were comfortable and clean. The kitchen was the best equipped we have ever seen in any of our rental stays. The sun deck is really big and the protected porch is a nice area to relax in the evenings. Views are great as well and we were also spotting Bald-eagles and Falcons. This place is definitely worth staying and we like to come again soon. There is one downside though. If you need internet during your stay you might be disappointed because the connectivity is very poor and the speed is very slow."

"My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Orchard Cabin! In the evening, we built a cozy fire and were able to prepare a nice meal in the decently equipped kitchen. The bathroom was sufficient, and the loft bed was a neat little space in which to dream. We had a bit of trouble with the coffee maker, but waking up to the sunlight streaming in, and sounds of chirping birds was delightful. The proximity to Ganges allowed for a quick walk into town. Hank, the sweet golden retriever, and picking apples off the tree outside the cabin made our stay extra special! Thank you to Matt and Christine for their hospitality... Hope to visit Salt Spring Island again sometime soon!"
