About Manager

I am a local businessman on Vancouver Island. I have been involved in the hospitality industry for many years, creating memorable experiences for my patrons and customers.

Manager purchased this Condo in 2010

Why Manager chose Ganges

I built this property because I wanted a retreat from my busy life on Vancouver Island. The property I chose for Mariner's Loft is the only property with hotel zoning in the town of Ganges, and the views to Ganges Harbour and the Gulf Islands are second to none. I detailed and furnished the unit as I would my own home, and created a large outdoor deck off the unit to enjoy a dinner party, a barbecue, or just a coffee in the morning overlooking the Marina and the Seaplanes taking off and landing in the distance. I find it so relaxing to be in my beautiful creation that I wanted to share it with others looking for a relaxing respite from their busy lives. It is perfect for longer term stays in the winter, for Snow Birds to enjoy our benign maritime climate, or for weekenders or weekly stays in the Summer for people looking for a well deserved break from busy live

What makes this Condo unique

An elegant kitchen encourage meals at home, with the abundant local produce, and fish all within walking distance of your suite. Throw the car keys away- even, tours of wineries, art galleries and studios. The suite is beautifully furnished with a West coast design.

                                                              I have been visiting salt Spring island for literally 25 years. After staying at this rental I will never stay anywhere else. It was beautifully decorated, clean, conveniente and very comfortable. Everything was very easy to control and operate, i.e. the TV, cable, the fireplace the laundry, etc. For us there couldn't have been a better location. We loved walking downtown to dinner to shops and everywhere without having to worry about parking. This rental was secure and I would especially impressed with the gated parking lot, the cleanliness of the outdoor space, and the views. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone and I actually will be telling anybody I know going there that this is the place!

                                                              Great Location and Service but not a 5* property

                                                              Montse C.New York City

                                                              I stayed at the Mariner Loft for 10 weeks. The apartments are located right downtown Salt Spring , the views are fantastics and the 2 ladies that manage the place, are always happy to help.

                                                              CONS- If you stay in the second floor, get ready to buy earplugs because you will hear EVERYTHING that goes on up in the penthouse which will get annoying. The apartments are decorated with Ikea furniture and are in desperate need of an update to be considered luxurious. The walls need painting , new linens need to be bought ( I actually had to talk to the manager because mine were soiled!!!), the pots, pans/dishes are all kitchenmaid or ikea and are pretty damaged, some of furniture is very damaged and dirty, the beds need to be replaced and in general , the apartments need some serious thorough cleaning....especially the grill on the balcony. The wifi and cable package are very basic and subpar..get ready for a lot of buffering and frustration.

                                                              PROS- Location,VIEW, Rebecca & Krysta.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for your comments. We have tried to minimize the footstep noise from the penthouse by installing long runner carpets and room rugs. Wood floors are beautiful but we do understand it doesn't absorb as much noise as a fully carpeted room.

                                                              A professional interior designer from a premium design firm in Victoria furnished each room on the property.

                                                              Each room comes with it's own dedicated wi-fi. Salt spring Island has services for a smaller island over a main city so we have made sure to include this upgraded feature to each room.

                                                              The walls have been painted as part of regular maintenance as well as linens being purchased and other regular upgrades.

                                                              We appreciate your comments and are happy we could address them.

                                                              The views were amazing, peaceful and relaxing to watch the boats in the harbor, the sea planes landing and taking off. The complex is within walking distance to the Fish Market, a local taco stand and the town center of Ganges which has various shops and a Thrift Food Market. The bedrooms were comfortable. The kitchen had the necessary items, but some showed wear and a griddle would have been nice for making breakfast for the 4 of us. Our goal was to take a little get away with family. The management staff Rebecca and Krista were wonderful and tended to all inquiries we had. We had an awesome time exploring the island. The Saturday Market was a fun thing to do. A bumpy ride up to the top of Mount Maxwell was worth the amazing views. We had a great time!

                                                              Enjoyed our stay
