About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Escape the city and unwind in this tastefully renovated cottage – perfect for a family or a romantic getaway!! Nestled in Fulford Harbour, you approach the sunny 2.5 acre property from a circular driveway. The cottage is beautifully situated to enjoy stunning ocean views of Russell Island and Mt Baker. Two sets of French doors lead out to a deck that will leave you breathless with the spectacular views.

A designer-inspired kitchen with a gourmet Heartland stove has everything you need to prepare summer meals and enjoy them on the flagstone patio. The kitchen is very well equipped even for a discerning chef. And for those on clean up duty, a 2 drawer dishwasher and large farmhouse sink make the job easy!

An expansive living room with a vaulted ceiling is furnished with pine Canadiana pieces for your comfort. Books, board games and videos are available to help you unwind and relax or share some laughs. The warmth of the wood burning fireplace will keep you cozy on those cooler days.

A peaceful sleep awaits you in one of 3 bedrooms: one with a double bed overlooking the ocean, the second a queen bed with views to the forest. A secret loft is also available for additional sleeping room and has a queen size bed from which you can enjoy the stars and moon on those clear nights. Two newly renovated bathrooms also await you– one powder room and a second with a walk-in rain shower.

Your days can be spent soaking in the sights and sounds at your own private, west coast-style beach or meandering through the forest trails. Whether enjoying your morning coffee on the deck or happy hour on the patio, you are sure to love the outdoor living that awaits you!

There are several ‘extras’ at this family friendly cottage The lower level has a Foosball and Ping Pong table. The kids nook has several toys for various ages as well as a super cool Harry Potter sleeping hollow. For the youngest guests, we have a playpen, baby monitor and highchair (booster seat type) available for your enjoyment.

We truly enjoy sharing our piece of paradise. In the spirit of giving back, we donate a percentage each year to a charity - Free the Children.

NOTE: A small secondary studio cabin is on the property and is home to our grounds keeper.

About The Owner

We are a family of four who fell in love with Salt Spring Island. We bought the cottage with an eye to the future as our children are young and getting away from city life was important.

Why Salt Spring? It has a very strong sense of community and a robust set of events, shows and cultural activities. Additionally, having an island hospital was very important to our situation. Finally, if we choose to enjoy a fabulous meal there are wonderful restaurants on the island.

And the real reason...we are able to create great memories by having a second family join us. The kids love exploring the outdoors while the parents savour an adult 'playdate' over a bottle of wine?!?! Who says you have to wait until retirement.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful cottage and an amazing view. A warm place to visit with family and we're even visited by a family of deer. Lovely island with great little shops and cafes. Would love to come back here again. Taking with us some wonderful memories. Thanks for everything!

Comfortable Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

This newly renovated home had all the amenities we could have wanted. It felt homey and luxurious at the same time. The owners were pleasant, accommodating, and efficient. Even though the December days were cold, the wood stove and the heaters kept us cozy. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, but especially families.

Beautiful home overlooking the bay.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and very pleasant. The firewood was all prepared. It rained a lot (November), but we were able to make the house cozy and enjoy our time. Kitchen utensils were available, and everything was ready to move in and relax.

Gorgeous Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful house with lovely dishes and a VERY relaxing atmosphere!

Furniture, kitchen and dishes were just gorgeous and the wood burning fireplace such a nice addition.

They also have really pretty bathrooms and comfy beds.

Loved the board games too! Would definitely stay there again.

October 2016 weekend on Salt Spring at Juniper Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six adults and very much enjoyed our stay in October 2016 at Juniper Cottage. The key feature for us was the coffee maker and deck overlooking Fulford Harbour - we have some avid ferry watchers amongst our crew. The Cottage gave everyone enough space to be comfortable and feel at home, and enough room for sleeping. For future travellers to the Cottage, there's no need to bring kitchen basics (as you may need to for other spaces you rent) - there were spices, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, tea and sugar for our use. We would highly recommend the Salt Spring market for some good eats, the disc golf course for a lovely way to spend an afternoon, and the brewery (in particular, the Heather Ale, Earl Grey IPA and Dry Porter) - bring a growler with you!

Beautifully furnished with loads of room and things to do for six of us, Juniper Cottage was the perfect place for our girls' get-away. Thank you for sharing your home.

Beautiful and cozy for the family

  • 5 of 5

At the end of our week, we all agreed that this was the best house we have ever rented. My husband and our 2 year-old daughter shared the house with our friends and their 2 year-old daughter. From the reviews and photos, I was expecting the upstairs to be beautiful and it was - but I hadn't fully anticipated what a wonderful home this is for families. There was plenty of space for everyone to stretch out. The downstairs is filled with toys and extra beds for kids, potties, booster chairs, silverware and plates and cups. It made the stay incredibly easy and fun. The views out to the sound are amazing. The kitchen is very well stocked - with olive oil and spices. We spent most of the week cooking with food from the Island. The girls particularly enjoyed picking apples from the tree and watching the bunny rabbits and ferry boats go by. We are hoping to make it a yearly trip. Thank you!
