Saltspring Girls Trip
Our host Michael was very easy to speak with and accommodating. We had a group of 8 adults (3 couples and 2 singles) and the home was perfect for us: lovely heritage home, great view of the water, a large, well stocked kitchen including abundant spices, condiments and cooking supplies, great living room to sit and gab, and walking distance to shops etc. We all had a wonderful time! Thank you, Michael!
This heritage home is just so lovely and spacious! 8 women and we had TONS of spaces to relax or join together in; if we come here again, we could easily invite 2 more friends. The property location is so private but so close to both the beach (and a pub or two!) and downtown, we were able to walk to nearly everything we wanted. All our group brought some things from home, such as spices or towels or pillows, as we have been bitten before, but we did not need a thing, other than fresh groceries as previous tenants had left many dry goods, and the house was spectacularly stoked with linens. There was a ton of reading material and music to listen to, and thankfully, just one TV in a private den area, which we did not turn on once. (who needs 'em?) Ganges itself is just sublime, we made the weekly HUGE Saturday market downtown (seasonal however) so much fun and fantastic artisans and food there. So much to do there, will go again one day. Thanks MIchael and Tara!
We enjoyed our stay in this spacious house. The setting and location are wonderful and we loved sitting on the balcony gazing at the harbour. The kitchen is well-equipped and overall the experience was great.
Getaway to Ganges
The Rebelles (5 fibre artist) found this location to perfectly suit our needs. Separate bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large well equipped kitchen and a large private yard that allowed us to work on projects in the great outdoors without disturbing neighbours.. We enjoyed the great view and we hope make a return visit someday in the future.
wineries, organic farms, yoga retreat and drop ins close by, many artist studios, farmers market and fair, book stores, video rentals, antique stores, clothing stores, restaurants and delivery, pubs, heritage museums, music venues, theater, old fashioned movie house (current movies though).
When you are on this very private property you would never know that this is all at your doorstep.
I'm a city boy from Vancouver, who has always dreamed of enjoying and maintaining an island heritage property (You don't so much 'own' such a property as take your turn looking after it) Traveling is in my blood, but I love the natural wonders and serenity of the Gulf Islands of British Columbia more than anywhere else I have been privileged enough to visit. An environmentalist at heart, I am sensitive to keeping this property chemical free and the house as healthy a living space as possible.
Michael purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2001
Why Michael chose Ganges
We fell in love with this late 19th century estate when a friend bought it many years ago. Every opportunity to visit that came up, we made it a priority to get there. This is one of those properties that changes your life in so many ways, and all of them for the better.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Once you arrive at this property, you no longer need your car. Everything you need is within close walking distance. But when you enter and close the gate behind you, you are in a private world all your own and the outside world ceases to exist. It is the very best of all worlds!
