Property description

Perched on a hillside with breathtaking views overlooking the Ganges Harbour Gulf Islands and Mt. Baker. A large sitting deck in the trees provides a gathering place for meals or just an afternoon of lounging in the sun. This home is extremely private in a quiet family neighborhood and we discourage batchlourette or stag parties. This house provides spacious privacy for all and is a cozy home for families. Our family recently re-modeled it featuring new luxury beds and linens; comfy modern Livingroom furnishings and all new appliances. The main floor ( 1800 sq. ft.) has a well stocked kitchen for you foodies & a BBQ on the portch outside. The Master Bedroom has a luxury KING BED and en-suite bath. Draw a bubble bath in Allison's claw-foot tub on a private deck with an ocean view. A spacious sunken living room: comfy seating for 8 w/cable t.v., high speed wifi throughout, dark hardwood floors with some carpets. Three bedrooms upstairs (2 Queen Rooms, 1 with Twin Beds) & 3Pc. bathroom upstairs. Ocean views from every room. Sleeps up to 8 comfortably. We can supply a queen air bed and linens for free for more beds. For more room, we have an unadvertised 5th bedroom in the lower level. This suite has a brand new Queen bed for guests 9 &10 and we charge an additional cleaning fee of $75. This is a self contained level which has a 3 pc bathroom and a spacious sunroom with million dollar views as well.

Car: Recommended

The island is approx. 22 miles long and 4-5 miles wide and named after the salt water springs at the islands' north end. Steeped in history, the ambiance is much like an English countryside with many local famous artists and skilled craftspeople holding open studio tours. A renowned local farmer's and craft market (not to be missed) every Saturday. Local vineyard tours & wine tasting as well as amazing goat cheeses and soap works- the list is endless!

The locals are almost too friendly!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: Owned mutually by 4 siblings who live in four different cities and 2 countries- but rest assured, we'll be there for all your needs! We all love to 'come home' periodically and relax and re-connect with our siblings. One sibling, Greg, lives nearby and he is the one that does all the bookings and deals with enquiries.

Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada:
Our parents built this charming home in 1975 for their retirement and upon their passing we all had such pleasant times and memories of Salt Spring that we decided we should allow others to experience the unique warmth and rest of Allison (our dear mother) House as it became known. We have kept the name in her honor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Amazing views of the Gulf Islands, Mt. Baker off in the horizon - the quiet serenity of living in the forest. Walking distance (2 miles) or a short car trip from the largest village (Ganges) on the island.
