Perfect place for a friends retreat

  • 5 of 5

I recently travelled with two friends to SSI to meet with another friend who lives on the island, for a weekend retreat. The house was perfect for the 4 of us to spend time together, talking, eating, drinking, and enjoying the views and the cozy fireplace. Lorraine was a fabulous host and very generously allowed us an early check in and late check out to line up with our ferry schedules. The house was as advertised, the view was fabulous, and the kitchen was really well equipped which was great as we did a lot of cooking. I'll be heading back for sure.

Wonderful getaway on Salt Spring Island

The property is even more lovely than the photos on VRBO capture. We enjoyed a wonderful stay, cozying up by the fire and sharing meals. We will definitely come again.

Beautiful house overlooking ocean, Mt Erskine Drive, on west side of Salt Spring Island

  • 4 of 5

Five of us stayed for three nights over the Thanksgiving Weekend 2016. The house suited us perfectly, being spacious with three bedrooms, large kitchen/dining/ living room areas with two bathrooms and nicely furnished; the weather was cool so we did not benefit from the large decks. A small gravel beach can be readily accessed by road or a 10-minute walk from the house. The property is near the end of a short road so there is no through traffic and is about 6km from the main town, Ganges, that has a range of shops, restaurants, coffee shops etc.

Homey and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We travel together every October and nearly always rent vacation rentals or cabins. In ten years of rentals this is by far one of our most favorites. Its tranquil, welcoming, comfortable and safe. There was nothing we didn't need except more time to enjoy the few short days we were on the inland. We all liked that the owner was close by. Lorraine was friendly, kind and helpful. That's very much appreciated when traveling to unknown areas. Most of all we loved that we could take our furry companion, Simon, with us. As this was his first year traveling with us, and he is a senior who needs a little extra TLC, it was important to find a safe welcoming home for him too. Highly recommend this home as a safe harbor for your next vaca....

Peaceful, Beautiful Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Lorraine is an amazing host- she has all the essentials needed. She provides great knowledge and over all is a lovely person. Her home is gorgeous, peaceful and we enjoyed every minute of it. The outside deck was amazing, watching the sunsets, or just having a glass of wine and relaxing was perfect. The master bed is amazingly comfortable and a lovely en suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms are nice as well, the study worked perfect for my sons baby room! The house is immaculate, has all comforts of home and amazing views. We were sad to leave -we fully recommend staying here.
