About The Owner

For many years, my husband and I took our four sons every summer on vacations that involved water, so that we could all enjoy boating, water skiing and tubing. Our good friends bought this Salt Spring Island home and we rented the home from them for 8 years. Then, it came up for sale and we bought it without hesitation from our friends!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Vesuvius

The ocean views are spectacular and the sunsets divine. The half acre, flat property with low bank to the ocean feels spacious and private. Perfect for entertaining (or not). Tastefully decorated. The kitchen and bathrooms were renovated in 2014. A wonderful place to relax and recharge!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My girlfriends and I have rented Seagates 3 times over

the past 2 years and plan on coming back for years to come. It's a great

place to spend a girl?s weekend away. Seagates is situated right on the bay

and we love to sit in the living room or on the deck and enjoy the view.

There's also steps leading down to the beach if you want to go explore while

the tide is out. We've also rented the Dowry house when there's more then 6

of us and it works out perfectly as the two cottages are only a step away

from each other and we can walk between them quickly. Both are beautifully

and comfortably furnished and fully stocked with all the dishes, towels, etc

we've ever needed. I highly recommend these cottages to anyone looking for a

beautiful, comfortable, relaxing place to stay.

Fantastic beachfront home

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. The owner has thought of everything needed for a comfortable stay. The open airy kitchen is fully equipped, the rooms/beds are very comfortable, and the wood burning fireplace created a warm ambience for our stay. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will return next year. Love this place!!!!!

Beautiful Decor and Wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but praise for this gorgeous home on the ocean ! It had such a lovely juxtaposition of upscale trendy and vintage in all the decor. There was nothing lacking! Fully stocked new kitchen, spotless everywhere, fire laid for us and cozy housecoats waiting too. Five ladies totally enjoyed the ambiance of this home! We roamed the Vesuvius Bay area, the beach, Duck Park and all of Ganges. A repeat visit is a must for us!

Beautiful, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is amazing! Not only is the home well stocked, beautiful and comfortable, the views are spectacular. A bonus was picking an apple off one of the many apple trees! They were delicious! A short walk from this property is Seaside restaurant. I highly recommend this Seaside if you want to go out for a meal. I will definitely try to get back to stay at this wonderful home.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The place is great. It is clean and beautiful as described. Can't beat the beach access that is a few steps from the front door. The hammock is amazing as you watch the ferries go back and forth all day!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Shared this cottage with girlfriends and had an amazing time. The home is very well stocked, every thing is covered from blankets to use sitting around the propane fire pit, to every possible kitchen gadget, beach towels, games room, kayaks etc. Sitting on the Adirondack's and enjoying the beautiful sea view was a favorite pastime. This cottage was everything it was advertised as and more.
