Luxurious Waterfront Retreat with Private Beach

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


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 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:, 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 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 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!

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

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!

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, beautiful changing view (clock your day with the ferry activity - magical!), well-stocked kitchen, great local walking. We occupied one floor of the light-filled house - very simple and lovely.

Absolutely the best family vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem!!! This property is absolutely incredible!!! From the stunning view to the beautifully decorated cottage, we felt at home the moment we walked in. The kitchen is specular and fully stocked which led to us making so many memorable meals together ... including homemade pies with all the fresh blackberries we picked!

Our family loved the open concept of the cottage, the many cool sleeping areas and the variety of outdoor areas to eat, hang out and play games!!

This was absolutely the best family vacation ever!! Thank you for creating an incredible space for us to connnect, relax and enjoy!

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families staying at the cottage. The house is situtaued in a beautiful neighbourhood with an awesome view. Lots to do on salt spring but we were equally happy to stay at the cottage and enjoy the view. The kids/rec room was a big bonus. Great property manager Sue but the owners were a little slow to respond when we wanted to extend our trip. Other than that it was a 10/10 experience. Thank you for letting us stay at your cottage!
