"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

"This lovely 5 bedroom heritage house overlooks Ganges so you can easily walk to town to explore the shops, art galleries, restaurants, the Market, etc. Yet the house is secluded. The scent of the cedar trees over the back patio was intoxicating. The house is comfortable, well equipped, artfully decorated and met all of our needs so was perfect in every way for our girls' getaway. There were nine of us and we never felt crowded. Lots of space. The view from the house is amazing. We were all curious about the history of the house and it would have been nice to have had that on hand. We hope to make our getaway an annual event and if we decide on Saltspring again, we will definitely come back to this house and will recommend it to others. Thank you!"

"We loved staying at happi/nest, it was everything we were hoping for. The bed is SUPER soft and cozy, we loved watching the wood burning fireplace from bed. The bath was HUGE, my partner is 6"4 and it's the only bath we've ever been able to lie in comfortably together. It really does feel like you're in a tree house, but it's also super clean. Prefect combo of rustic and luxurious. It's near Ganges, just a short drive to restaurants and even though it's near a main road it's very quiet and peaceful. Mostly you just hear the sounds of birds. We would definitely go back!!"

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."
