About Monika Huser

I came from Switzerland to marry my husband on Salt Spring Island over 30 years ago. Enjoy meeting people and hope they fall in love with our island as I did and still do.

Lovely and comfortable cottage on beautiful Salt Spring Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful 6-night visit at Eagle's Nest Cottage. Very comfortable, quiet, and great location. The cottage is nicely appointed with everything we needed. We prepared several meals in the fully equipped kitchen, enjoyed the view across the channel to Vancouver Island (until it was obscured by smoke from BC wildfires), picked blackberries just outside the door, soaked in the hot tub, and simply relaxed. Although Monika was away, she made sure her neighbor and daughter checked in with us, so we were well taken care of. So many lovely details: double paned windows, grape vines painted on the concrete floor to disguise some cracks, lots of fluffy towels, plenty of hangers and empty shelves for clothes, fans to cool the rooms, binoculars, board games, an outdoor shower for the hot tub, gas grill, plenty of good kitchen tools and even a roll of plastic wrap. We would happily recommend this cottage to anyone, anytime.

Exceeding our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Monica and Peter's place was so great...absolutely exceeded our expectations! So clean, perfect size for the two of us and our dogs. Loved that the property was so close to the beach and private swimming hole, completely fenced so we didn't worry about our dogs at all and lots of room for them to run off-leash. Cottage was only about 10 minutes from Ganges and only 5 or so minutes from Vesuvius ferry terminal. Thank you again for your accommodation!

Lovely spot!

  • 4 of 5

Monica's little place is perfect for a relaxing break...well equipped and very private! 10 minutes from Ganges and a lovely scenic drive...I have no negatives at all, the only reason I have not given 5 stars is something blooming gave me a full blown allergy attack...of course, this is to no fault of Eagles Nest...just bring allergy meds if visiting this time of year! Book this if you can...

Perfect stay - yet again!

  • 5 of 5

After a great stay last summer we decided to return to Eagle's Nest Cottage and it did not disappoint! There were some upgrades from our last visit - a new TV, better cable services and seemingly more kitchenware. Everything we needed was at the cottage. We used the BBQ every day. The Country Grocer/Salt Spring Market/Ganges is only 15 mins away and had all the provisions we needed.

The great thing about Eagle's Nest is that it's a getaway from a getaway. Vesuvius is quieter than Ganges so we really had a peaceful time! Our dog loved the property. Monika and Peter were great and let him run around. He especially loved to chase the wild rabbits around! There are wild deer everywhere but their property has a deer fence so you can enjoy watching them at a safe distance. We also spotted quite a few eagles during our stay!

We also took advantage of the great hikes around the cottage. Just behind the main house there is a path. If you take the path and turn right it'll lead you uphill towards a great spot to watch the sunset! (just follow the signs and the numbers). You'll find a bench at the top of the mountain and only about 15mins away. If you follow the path towards Pringle Road there is a great new lavender farm (Lavender & Black) and the couple there are great. It's their first year in business so definitely worth a visit to see how they progress. A little further away is Sunset Farms - a great place to get lamb sausages for the BBQ! Eagle's Nest is in the perfect spot!

The cottage itself is very private even though it's on a shared property. We used the hot tub daily and always felt comfortable. We had some music playing in the afternoon and never felt like we were making too much noise.

We thoroughly recommend staying at Eagle's Nest and we will definitely be back!
