Wonderful Spot

  • 5 of 5

Great location, lovely view from the cottage. Close to the town for restaurants and shopping.

It was very cosy and inviting. Loved our stay and Melodie was great and followed up with us to make sure we had all the details prior to arriving. Highly recommend for a lovely getaway.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our winter weekend stay at the Beach House. We initially reserved the lower unit but it had a musty smell possibly due to recent painting. Melodie responded immediately and moved us to the upper unit which was delightful. The view of the water is beautiful and the space is cozy with nice furnishings. The bathroom is small but adequate. The open living space and kitchen were great. We were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go in town. So convenient.

Owner's Response: Yes, please know for future guests, we had just done all new painting and more renovations in the Garden Suite. The paint smell was still detectable which is why we avoided booking out the other unit incase we had to move these guests. Now the paint smell is ofcouse gone.

Fabulous well kept, modern, comfortable seaside cottage apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, Melodie was very helpful and accommodating. The house was very clean, well kept and comfortable, great views, perfect position on the outskirts of the village with walking distance of everything, yet very private. Lots of lovely little restaurants and shops as well as the harbour close by. Would definitely recommend this spot.

Great views, very nice artistic touches

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights and it couldn't have been nicer. We were charmed from the moment we arrived with the awesome view from the kitchen and all of the nice touches. This is definitely not your typical rental: nice paintings, art on the shelves, fascinating mat in the bathroom, and even cool drawer handles in the kitchen. There were even hand-painted martini glasses. Honestly we didn't want to leave. Almost forgot, the location couldn't have been better. Everything was within a couple minutes walking distance. What a place.

Property was everything that was advertised. Nice and close to Ganges so no car required once there.

  • 4 of 5

The Garden Suite was well maintained and stocked. Everything you might require was there. Access to the water was a little tricky but certainly close enough. I would recommend this location to other travelers going to Salt Spring Island.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved the atmosphere and everything it had to offer. The view from the deck and kitchen was amazing. Great location walked to town a couple times a day. Farmers market so handy to the rental. We would rent this again if we every go to Salt Springs again.
