Luxurious Waterfront Retreat with Private Beach

Southern Gulf Islands, BC, Canada
  • House
  • Bedrooms2
  • Sleeps6

  • Minimum Stay2 - 7 nights

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

Spend your days soaking in the sights and sounds on this quiet part of the island. Meandering through the forest trails on the property. 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 of the revenues to our favourite charities: We.org, BC Women's Hospital Foundation and Upendo - a Tanzanian orphanage at which we volunteered.

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

About 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 to us. 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!

                                                          Ying L.

                                                          We only stayed for 2days but we loved it. The house offers everything we need and more than enough. Clean and tidy, great ocean view.

                                                          Has to be the best property on the island!

                                                          This is such an amazing place, with so many charming touches. The amenities are great, and we loved waking up in the morning and sitting on the patio to sip our coffee. I really enjoyed the loft with the skylights. Simply one of a kind place. Loved our weekend here!

                                                          Beautiful, well equipped family cottage

                                                          Amy M.

                                                          We had a wonderful stay at Juniper cottage! The pictures don’t do the view justice. The house is beautiful and very well equipped. It had everything you need when traveling with small children. Our kids had a ball playing with all the toys and we enjoyed the wood burning fireplace and watching the ferries go by. The property was beautifully cared for and thoughtfully maintained. We arrived to fresh cut flowers in every room and a canister full of coffee.

                                                          The accommodations were exactly as described plus more! Every amenity you could wish for.

                                                          Loved the wood burning fireplace. Great location. Beautiful view. Would definitely go back!

                                                          Great property

                                                          Melanie P.

                                                          Games room was heaven except that it was too cold to stay there for too long. Our travels was in the winter though, so its understandable. Love the many hidden gems that we did not expect as part of the property. Too bad the weather was too cold to enjoy the surrounding area; would love to come back on warmer weather-days.

                                                          Thank you for your feedback. We will make a point of updating our Welcome Book with information on how to heat the lower games area. There are two large baseboard heaters – one under the church pew and the second along the book wall. They are high voltage heaters and when set to HIGH they warm the space up quickly. In the future, please also free to call us and we would be happy to help you.

                                                          Fantastic family friendly getaway.
