Quiet, comfortable, just like home

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities of home. It was very quiet, with lots of birds in the trees on the property. The owner was right next door if you needed anything, but discreetly left us alone. The view was beautiful (although a bit narrow, with trees on close on either side). Very lovely stay.

Great place to unwind and enjoy the beauty all around you!

  • 5 of 5

Lorraine's place was wonderful. We had a girl's mini holiday and enjoyed a couple of nights

at Lorraine's. She was there to meet us and had brought us some beautiful flowers and had a nice welcome sign on the door. The place was immaculate with a stunning view. The layout was very open and tasteful. We had everything we needed to make it a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The dishes, cookware, bedding , furniture etc. was all very tasteful. It was really quiet and restful. Getting to town was 10 to 15 minutes. We really enjoyed exploring, walking and the little shops. Saturday we took in the local market which was pretty awesome. All in all a perfect getaway!

My first visit to Salt Spring and Lorraine's. The place was perfect for me and my fur babies and Salt Spring is lovely. Looking forward to returning and continuing our exploring and shopping.

Perfect place for the family, not too far from all the places we wanted to visit.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the view of the ocean from the property and the many visits from the hummingbirds to the feeder on the patio. The kitchen was great and stocked with all the comforts of home so we could make most of our meals at the house. Beautiful home, would love to go back sometime! My 2 girls didn't want to leave!

Private and tranquil.

Arriving to a beautiful bouquet of tulips - this warm and tastefully decorated home was a perfect island retreat! Hummingbirds, sunset views, and relaxing baths with lemongrass soap. Everything you'd need plus some extras!!

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our son and daughter with their spouses enjoyed a family vacation at Lorraine's beautiful house. This place was prefect for us. It is in a great location with a spectacular view of the ocean. The place has a huge kitchen with everything in it that one might need. The house has plenty of space with a large dining area and large living area. The master bedroom is huge and has a very comfortable bed. The other two bedrooms are of good size as well.

Lorraine is very welcoming and hospitable. She is a great host.

This place is fantastic and we highly recommend it.
