Guestbook comments from the owner

"Excellent Christmas Retreat. We have stayed at the cottage three times for Christmas. Twice at Tantramar and the last stay at Seagates. Our family of adult children is scattered and each year we pick a cottage to get together to celebrate the season. Over the years we keep coming back to these quaint cottages overlooking the ocean to reaquaint as a family. The cottages are extremely well appointed with all the conveniences for cooking and have a very homey atmosphere with the fireplaces and all the games in the cupboard for evening activity. Great places to stay. Will be going back soon."

Awesome beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a fantastic weekend on Salt Spring Island. This beach cottage was our perfect home away from home, well equipped with everything we needed and super comfortable. The location was perfect and the water view was outstanding. Janet was exceptionally easy to deal with and we hope to return.

This was our second time staying here for a girls weekend away and we loved it. Janet is great at communicating, the house is adorable, the bed comfortable and it is very clean. We love it and are booking it again for next year.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in November. Made good use of the extra large, see-through fireplace. Hope to go back again when it's warmer so that we can enjoy the outdoor seating and proximity to the little beach. Very clean and welcoming.

Been staying here for almost 10 yrs now. This is a one of a kind location in the world of vacation rentals. You are never in need of anything and the tranquility is perfection. If you can stay here do it.
