About the Property
Studio, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
Relax in the tranquil surroundings, enjoying the company of local wild deer that enjoy resting on the lawn. Help yourself to the herbs outside the suite entrance as you prepare your own sumptuous meals in the dine out on the gazebo with a panoramic view of the property. Take a peaceful walk around the labyrinth - you may even be joined by one of our friendly cats (please note that we cannot accommodate guests bringing their own pets).
The local Creekside Rainforest is a wonderful place to explore nature, while several artist studios are situated just footsteps away, including the very delicious Moonstruck Cheese. Emerge from your Salt Spring retreat feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Your hosts Brett (qualified Physiotherapist and Yoga Teacher) and Jason (PhD in Psychology, specialising in communication skills) offer a variety of treatments and therapies that can turn your retreat into a growthful and insightful experience.
Amata Guest Retreat is located at the southern end of Beddis Road, central Salt Spring Island. We are just footsteps away from Beddis Beach, one of the island's most beautiful beaches, and a short drive from both Fulford and Long Harbour ferry terminals. Ganges (the main village on the island) is 6km/10 minute drive away.
Please note that we are NOT able to accept guests with pets. In addition, there is a minimum age limit of 12 years. As this is a vacation rental property and not a B&B, please note that no meals are included - though the suite, of course, has a full kitchen and there is a wide selection of tea and coffee, together with milk and condiments.
Also, please note that the suite comprises the ground floor of our home (with its own private entrance). It is not a stand-alone cottage. There is a $20 supplement per night, payable at check-out, for a third person to stay in the suite on the futon bed.

Close to Beddis Beach and Creekside Rainforest
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Brett grew up in South Africa, Jason in the UK, and we both moved to Canada in the 90's - eventually making it across to Salt Spring in 2005. Waking up each morning on this beautiful island feels like an everlasting vacation. We are blessed to have found a sunny property, graced by many of the local deer, and have created tranquil gardens that are designed to offer a retreat from the busy world for us as well as for our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada:
We chose this location due to its proximity to the ocean (less than 200 metres) and local rainforest. While we're only ten minutes away from the shops and restaurants of Ganges (the island's only town), we were attracted by the quiet road (we're nearly at the end of it) and low volume of traffic - good for our peace of mind and the cats' well-being!
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Sitting by the garden pond, watching the whale fountain while deer wander through the grounds. Doing yoga in the beautiful Pyramid studio that we built in the garden in 2008, or dining in the sun-drenched gazebo looking out over the lawn in the long summer months. In the winter, enjoying one of the lightest properties in the area - not too many trees to obscure the precious winter sun.
