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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the location and the lovely accommodations. It was easy to access and everything was as described. The condiments in the kitchen include salt & pepper and coffee, so if you plan to do any cooking you'll need to bring any other condiments you may need. The condo was very well equipped with cooking utensils, dishes, cookware etc. We enjoyed having the choice to prepare meals or eat out. Lots of great restaurant choices and bakeries in Ganges!

This was the last VRBO for us in a two week trip to BC and it was by far our best accommodation in every respect. Great communications, spotlessly clean, lots of space and very well equipped with quality appliances, etc. Thanks so much for an amazing time!

Perfect Salt Spring Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Mariner's Loft for 3 nights with my partner, son and in-laws. It was absolutely perfect! We started the day with Salt Spring coffee on the balcony in the morning, overlooking a stunning marina view. All the shops in Ganges are within a couple minutes walking distance, and there are playgrounds at the schools right behind the Loft. It was easy to maneuver around the island from this location.

The unit was stunning and spotless with Salt Spring artists on display and local soaps available for use. The beds and rooms were comfortable and spacious.

We used the noise machine to help our child go to sleep, and it completely drowned out any road noise. The people who run Mariner's Loft clearly anticipate their guests' needs. We were able to cook and barbecue as well as run laundry and dishes.

Mariner's Loft turned a weekend getaway into a dream vacation. I would highly recommend staying here for a beautiful Salt Spring Island experience.

Clean and close to everything

  • 4 of 5

Check in and check out very easy. Good comfortable clean place for 2 people - second bedroom a bit stuffy as no ventilation ( first floor). Great to be so close to everything but know that great location comes with noisy road. Great recycling set up but surprisingly no ‘green bin’ composting on saltspring?

Wonderful room with a view!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful rental property was very comfortable for our family of 5. It is clean, bright, comfortable and well equipped. It is located within short walking distance of all the shops and marina in Ganges. A great place to take day trips on the island or water. We would rent it again.

The property is located on a rocky bluff overlooking the ocean, Ganges Harbour and the Marina. Only a four minute walk to 'downtown' Ganges, there are multiple attractions within the small village. There are many restaurants and Bistros in Ganges for every taste and budget. On the high end is the acclaimed restaurant at Hastings House, and House Piccolo. Live music is featured at the funky Tree House, The Saltspring Inn and the Harbour House. On a recent long weekend, they had a Sitar player at the Tree House, a wonderful young fiddler at the Saltspring Inn and an energetic South American Jazz trio at the Harbour House. There are also many art galleries in Ganges and studio tours available to see artists works around the Island. Also on the Tour program are visits to the Goat Cheese Factory, The soap factory, and three local wineries.
