This spacious, bright, modern home, built by a well known west coast architect, makes the most of the southwest exposure and surrounding landscape. Relax in your luxury retreat, with vistas from every window of sunny meadows, dappled oaks and distant forest, ocean and mountain views.

                                                                  Susan G.

                                                                  The house is spacious, very clean and thoughtfully decorated. It was large for our family of 3, we could have easily invited another couple with a child and had enough space to spread out, entertain and enjoy private time. The house is a great location to explore the island by vehicle, lots of nearby hiking/biking trails and a 10-minute drive to Ganges village. You will need a vehicle to stay here which was fine with us, we were able to retreat to this quiet oasis in the evening, listen to the crickets and see a million stars which was wonderful for our 7-year-old city dwelling child. There were lots of great board games for us to play as a family in the evenings, my 7-year-old did not watch TV or her tablet all week.

                                                                  Sheralin is very friendly, showed us her house, was available if there were any issues (there were none) and left us to enjoy our vacation. We travel a lot as a family, I am particular about cleanliness and I highly recommend this rental and plan to recommend it to friends.

                                                                  Beautiful house

                                                                  Jyoti P.

                                                                  Had a great experience with family. This is a perfect place for a big family.

                                                                  We had a great time at Rambler's Rest and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

                                                                  Stephanie S.

                                                                  This is a spacious and beautiful home that was ideal for our annual friends' retreat on Saltspring. We especially enjoyed the four bedrooms all with adult beds, lovely bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and the great hiking trails in the Channel Ridge neighborhood. The ground floor tenant was a non-issue for us (other than hearing the door slam when he came and went we never heard him). Thanks for sharing your lovely home Sheralin!


                                                                  ian z.

                                                                  This is our second year at Rambler's Rest and we will return. It is amazing. The place is clean bright and spacious. Well stocked with towels, plates, cutlery. 10 minutes to Ganges. We had enough room for our 2 kids and grand-parents. The master suite is incredible.

                                                                  Clean, spacious, beautiful

                                                                  Great place for a week's family vacation!

We six adults and two young children (3 1/2 and 1 1/2). The house was clean, comfortable and spacious. It suited our needs very well. The location was ideal for exploring the island. Added pluses were the trampoline and the morning and afternoon visits of the deer family.
