Previous reviews from VRBO:
"We absolutely adored our weekend stay at Bird's Hill Cottage. The silence, surrounded by nature, close to trails and easy access to other parts of the island. The cottage was immaculate and set up with everything we needed. The perfect amount of cozy during a weekend getaway from Vancouver. We cannot wait to stay here again! ".....
"We greatly enjoyed out stay at Birds' Hill Cottage. We're a group of 4 adults and 1 dog. The cottage was just the right size. The pictures don't do it justice, it's even cuter in person. It was extremely quiet all the time, we slept so well. There are many hiking/running trails that you can walk to just down the road. We ran every morning from the cabin on beautiful, forest trails. We especially enjoyed the Channel Ridge Trails, which you can access easily from the cabin. We enjoyed walking on gorgeous beaches, exploring the local farms---especially Sunset Farm, and hiking up Mt. Maxwell for great views. Ruckle Park on the south end of the island was a real gem. It's about 45 minute drive from the cabin. The main town of Ganges is a quick 20 minute drive. We had a great four night stay. I would definitely recommend this cabin on Salt Spring to family and friends.".....
"We - being two couples - stayed at the Bird's Hill cottage over the long weekend, for a quiet retreat and get away. And it was exactly that. The northern portion of Saltspring is very quiet, so being on a side street the cottage was especially serene. Inside, the cottage is amazing. Polished concrete floors and counters give it a very modern feel contrasted with the exposed wood features and cleanly painted white walls. Everything is comfortable (chairs and beds) so it makes it easy to sink in and mellow out. Great stay, I highly recommend staying here.".....
"This was a great place to stay: a newly-built and very thoughtfully designed cabin/house, in a quiet spot. Very private and well-equipped. Saltspring Island is a beautiful place, and a foodie's heaven. I highly recommend this cottage."

Everything we hoped for and more!
Our family recently stayed at the Bird's Hill Cottage for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The cottage is bright, beautiful, thoughtfully organized, and very clean. Our kids loved sleeping in the "tree" loft area with its beautiful skylight view and comfortable beds. The location far exceeded our expectations, largely because of the nearby walking trails, farm, and beach (which we were able to easily find and enjoy, thanks to the thoughtful binder of information provided by Austen and Sam). We would highly recommend Bird's Hill Cottage - definitely a gem!
Immersive Retreat in a Quiet Natural Setting
Peaceful and serene, this modern cottage is filled with character and offers the perfect escape in a natural setting. A few favourite features include the shower experience overlooking a live wall of ferns, vaulted ceiling with skylights for additional natural light, very comfortable beds and heated concrete floors are a brilliant touch for west coast weather. Great location for immediate access to local trails, a variety of beach access points along with everything else Saltspring Island has to offer. Austen was a pleasure to meet, flexible and made us feel at home as a true host. Highly recommend this property as it may exceed your expectations.
Over exceeded our expectations!! Beautiful, Bright and clean.
Great place, On the north end of the island. If you are looking for a nice secluded cosy cabin, with radiant heated concrete floors and a very efficient wood stove, This is the place. We came with our two dogs ( small Terriers ) and wanted to hike. This was a great location to access lots of trails Would recommend this place at anyone. To be honest, rented many places before, and this place even got the 100% approval of my wife ( this has never happened before, lol )
Peaceful place to relax and re-charge.
Lovely cottage in a forest setting. Very comfortable for three people and everything you need is provided. We appreciated the owners' positive environmental practices. Good walks and lots to explore nearby.
All we could ask for!
Lovely, well-appointed modern-day cottage. Clean, airy and very comfortable.
