Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Well, we don't look like Frida and Diego but this picture is pretty close to Frida and her lover Leon Trotsky. Being artists ourselves, we wanted to celebrate the life and work of an artist in our cottages. Frida Kahlo was a perfect choice and with her came the Mexican theme which also makes our suite really fun to stay in. Carl has done all the beautiful cabinetry work in the cottages and Tracy has made and hand painted all the tiles. We experience the magic of Salt Spring daily and it gives us great pleasure to share our wonderful island life with guests. We can arrange massage therapists to come to the Casita and treat you to a spa experience. Tracy offers clay making sessions in her studio so you can try your hands in clay. In just a couple of hours you can make a bowl, tea cup, platter, sculpture ~ the possibilities are endless!

Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada:
We bought our little piece of paradise on Salt Spring Island because the island way of life called to us. It is very relaxing on Salt Spring. After a few days 'Island Time' settles in and the love and joy of our small community is reflected back in the smiles you will receive from local people. Nature abounds here with mountains, ocean and forest rhythms calling us to be outdoors. The Casita has an ocean and mountain view (with Mount Baker on clear days) and there are plenty of birds, deer and ocean creatures to spot and enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Salt Spring is abundant with nature swaying, flying and buzzing by everywhere. Eagles, humming birds, ravens and wood peckers can all be seen and heard in our area. At night the frogs sing from the pond and owls hoot. The stars are bright in the sky as there is little light interference. On your way down to the beach we have a community orchard full of Apple, Plum, and Pear Trees. Nearby there are golf courses, kayaking outfitters, artists studios to visit and many more activities to partake in. Salt Spring has an abundance of activities to do all year round so consider extending your stay.
