Overview

About the property

1000 sq. ft. 2 bedroom suite with extensive amenities and private patio.

Relax in a beautifully finished two bedroom suite including full kitchen, laundry, and a four piece bath with heated tile floors to give you a truly home away from home experience.

This 1000 square foot suite has been recently renovated with an emphasis on clean, simple lines while not sacrificing the character which is achieved through special touches like hundred-year-old reclaimed fir doors, prominent fir trim, and natural light solar tubes.

The kitchen comes with a full range of cooking utensils and appliances but there is also a BBQ if that is your preference. Next to your patio is an organic herb garden for the gourmet in your group.

Between the extra sound insulation and comfortable queen sized beds you can be assured that you wake up refreshed. A comfortable double sized sofa bed is also available for groups of more than four people.

The private entrance opens onto reclaimed brick patio area for a morning coffee, an 'al fresco' barbecue or evening nightcap.

About Bruce & Luba Martens

We are a couple living on Salt Spring Island for about 10 years and loving it. Last year, we have decided to become self-sufficient and planted an orchard with fig, pear and apple trees as well as grapes and blueberries. Although we both grew up in the big cities, we enjoy the country life style and comfort of our home with lovely two cats, Mister and Lizka.

Why Bruce & Luba Martens chose Southern Gulf Islands

Our property is a 3 minute drive to Ganges yet it is away from the main road in a peaceful setting. The herb garden outside of the suite offers our guests fresh ingredients for their culinary needs. If you have an eye for detail, you will notice a tasteful touch in the interior design of the suite done by Bruce . We value the privacy of our guests by having their own entrance, an outside picnic area with the barbecue and their own driveway.

What makes this apartment unique

One of the many aspects that drew us to this property, is the 90 million year old conglomerate that was once an under ocean landslide. The entire acre is seated firmly on the rock featuring fascinating encapsulated clasts of quartz and granite. This background is constantly inspiring the creativity in us manifesting in continuous evolution of additional adornments via mosaics, woodwork and landscape ideas.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Well-kept property and host was friendly and helpful. Very clean and nicer than I'd expected. We found everything we needed inside. We'll be back if we visit the Island again! Note for travelers with large groups: the pull-out sofa bed is somewhat short (I'm guessing 170 or 180 cm long), which worked fine for our children, but larger adults would have difficulty with it.

We had a lovely stay at Mossy Hill. Luba was a delight and shared her garden with us.

  • 4 of 5

Close to the main town on Salt Springs, Ganges, so vey convenient to shopping, which there are many wonderful spots to spend your vacation dollars.

Our two day stay on the Island was not long enough. Not a big Island but much to see and do. Loved the Salt Springs Cheese operation And all the artists we meant while visiting the Galleries on the Artist tour.

The weather was perfect. Food fantastic. We will be back.

Lovely atmosphere and great view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time at Mossy Hill. Very cozy and quite an amazing spot to stay at. Everything that you needed was there and anything you needed to get you only had to drive for about 5 minutes till you were in the town. Humming birds outside the main window were definately one of the best things too!

Quiet, Private, and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this accommodation. It was exactly as advertised. We appreciated the craftsmanship in the details, like the doors, because we, too, have renovated and understand the work involved. I loved having my morning coffee with the view of the garden in front of the house. The hummingbirds kept us entertained. It was easy to cook great meals in this kitchen, and the bar-be-que was a plus. Thank you Bruce and Luba for your hospitality.
