"We decided on a short getaway and this place was a great choice. Quiet location and a good home base. Was there with my wife and daughter and my daughter commented on the "calm and quiet energy". Good communication with Jason and very welcoming when we arrived. We plan on coming back!"

"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."

"My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed the cabin. It is a sun drenched little gem and I liked it more every day. A 5 minute drive to town, so a great location. The cabin is surrounded by trees and greenery and is so calming!( but you can hear or see the occasional car pass by on the road below. )
The cabin is not fancy but has all the basics needed to survive in the woods:) Great seating area and the most outrageously comfortable bed I think I've ever slept in! ( no radio and while there is a TV it is not connected) but who needs to watch TV anyway? The bird sanctuary across the road provided the most interesting bird calls occasionally.
Only ran into the owner once and we chatted for a few minutes, very personable and had good suggestions for hikes/beaches etc. A great yoga and wellness center down the road that I visited twice!
As a suggestion, a "welcome" note or binder detailing local restaurants etc. for first time visitors would be helpful..There were some maps and while we have visited the island a few times, we know our way around and where to eat, so it wasn't an issue for us.
Overall, a very relaxing visit and return in a heartbeat."
