About Owner

We moved to the island to get closer to nature and raise our family. We want to share Salt Spring with others. What drew us here will probably draw you too: the artists, the alternative lifestyle, the peacefulness, the beauty, the healing, the friendliness. Salt Spring has it all and is arguably the nicest place to live in Canada. Salt Spring is a natural fit for us. We are both healers and this is a healing place. Our healing techniques make a lot more sense right up close to nature. Enjoy any one of our specialties; Acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy, Rolfing, private yoga or the Alexander Technique.

                                                            Perfect Getaway

                                                            karen c.

                                                            This place was perfect. the bathroom had ceiling high windows so that you were constantly looking at nature. the tub was a perfect fit for two, with a lovely shower. The kitchen had all your basic needs. The fire place was amazing and wood was stacked outside for ease.

                                                            The hosts and interactions were smooth, and we were left alone so it felt like we were truly in our own space.

                                                            Would visit again, and highly recommend!!!

                                                            A cozy cottage in the woods!

                                                            Steph S.

                                                            The cottage is clean and well appointed! We were very comfortablw during our stay. The owners obviously take pride in their property and maintain it well. I think we had unusually hot weather while we were visiting, but it would have been nice if the doors had screens on them - it would have helped cool the cottage down.

                                                            Cabin in the woods...cute but needs updating

                                                            Penelope D.Miami Beach/Martha's Vineyard

                                                            Nice furninishings, bed covers, but needs painting, even for "rustic" look, around windows, and doors, then would feel fresher. Paper linings inside cupboards, new plates, a few more cups, clean sponges. Also, the deck needs re finishing, it is scruffy and not inviting. We never met our hosts but they were very helpful with any questions we had. I think, in terms of value for price paid, it falls a little short.

                                                            Such a peaceful stay

                                                            Yianni D.Portland, OR

                                                            We had three nights in Happinest, and loved every minute. The hosts were discreet but ready to help whenever needed, and the sense of privacy and quiet were absolute. Definitely a great place for a couple: romantic, simple to manage and close to lots of nice things.

                                                            It was a lovely space away from the maddening crowd.

                                                            Cute, private and quiet

                                                            We had a very good time and would come back
