Quiet Gem on Salt Spring Island
My wife and I just finished a 4-night stay at the Eagle's Nest Cottage and can't wait to go back. The Cottage is very clean, well appointed and well laid-out. The private deck, hot-tub and outdoor, hot-water shower really expanded the living space and were thoroughly enjoyed during our trip. The view to Vancouver Island and beyond is gorgeous, and can be enjoyed from the deck, hot-tub, main-living area, kitchen & dining table, and master bedroom. The Cottage is on the owner's property, but is well-screened from the main house; Other than a brief visit from Monika when we arrived to ensure we had everything we needed, we felt like we had the property to ourselves. The location is very quiet and secluded, with virtually no road or other noise, yet just a 10-minute drive to Ganges for restaurants, shopping etc.
Thank you, Monika and Peter, for a wonderful holiday. We will be back.
Absolutely love staying here! So peaceful. Thanks again Monika.
SALT SPRING POLLUTED BY PULP MILL SMOKE STACK EMISSIONS RIGHT ACROSS THE WATER
SALT SPRING POLLUTED BY PULP MILL SMOKE STACK EMISSIONS RIGHT ACROSS THE WATER - DIRTY COTTAGE
We were looking forward to a nice weekend on Salt Spring, and for the price we expected Eagle’s Nest cottage to at least be clean. The view is spectacular - but the all the windows were smeared by previous guests (their kids + dogs) and hadn’t been cleaned - so NO VIEW. The dirty/gritty and cracked concrete floors hadn't been vacuumed and the carpets were dirty too. The furnishings were MOTEL-GRADE CHEAP – definitely low rent. The love seat upholstery had sticky stains and looked like other dogs had slept there. There’s no coffee table. A previous guest had exploded some food in the microwave (yuck) – a HEALTH HAZARD which should have been cleaned before we arrived. No one paying that kind of money should have to clean house, wash windows or dishes for the owners.
The wood burning stove was full of ashes from previous use – there were no fireplace tools to mange burning wood – so a real fire hazard.
These people were too cheap to spring for a box of Kleenex. There were no pillow cases on the only 2 useable pillows and no top sheet on the bed. We had to call twice to get some proper linens and have the place swept out.
Worst of all the location is directly across from CATALYST PULP MILL at Crofton - when the wind changes during the day it reeks - and it stank all night - every night even with the windows closed. This “chemical air” pollutes the entire west coast along the island facing Crofton. While Salt Spring is always a nice adventure – wineries, cheese factories and glass works – art galleries and boutiques galore – Eagles’ Nest Cottage is surely a “must to avoid” - for the price a real rip-off.
After check-in time of 4 PM I came down to the cottage to greet Stephen and Valerie. They seemed very nice, complimented the view and setting. No words were mentioned regarding the cleanliness of the cabin until they complained to VRBO and expected financial compensation.
After each guest leaves, the floors get vacuumed and washed, all the cabinets and appliances are cleaned, and the doors are washed. We’re living on the west coast of Canada where it rains a lot and our windows don’t get washed after each guest.
The furniture is exactly as it appears on the VRBO webpage.
The mattress has a protection cover on it and a fitted sheet. There are 2 king size pillows with pillow cases and a duvet with a duvet cover, all of which get washed after each guest leaves.
In my 4 years in this business I have yet to have a complaint and my reviews are all very good.

We had such an amazing and super relaxing time at Monika's lovely cabin. The hot tub was so nice to unwind at the end of our day.
Eagle's Nest Cottage
The cottage is clean, comfortable, well-equipped, and well-managed. There is a beautiful view westward to the Pacific and to Vancouver Island beyond. Amenities exceeded our expectations. The place is a good base for seeing the rich culture, atmosphere, and beauty of Salt Spring Island.
The cabin and surrounding property is very serene and relaxing!
We loved the cabin, it's so cozy! The outdoor hot tub and shower were great, especially after hiking the Channel Ridge Trails which are accessible right at the end of driveway. We had a great time and highly recommend staying here! Thanks Monika!
