Property description

Sip on your FREE margaritas while soaking in the hot tub at this private Cottage while watching Eagles and Ravens soar above. Our Cottage and Casita are located in the south centre of the island, tucked away and surrounded by large trees. These ocean view cottages are an oasis - ideal for a romantic getaway, artist or writers retreat. They celebrate the art and life of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo with their Mexican themed decor.
Even on the dullest days of Winter these cottages shine brightly as they have open concept design with high ceilings and skylights. The fully equipped kitchens are stocked with breakfast foods to get you started on your vacation - including local free range eggs, croissants and muffins, coffee and tea. You can have breaky when and how you want to. The Cottage has Cable TV, a TV/DVD and stereo with movie and music selections. Excellent wireless internet and cell phone coverage. The Cottage is pet friendly with a community orchard, beautiful shell beach and rainforest walk - all dog friendly and within a 5 minute stroll. There is a fenced in yard for pets and we supply dog bowls, a welcome treat, towel and cover for the couch.
Note: The address is incorrect on this listing, but VRBO will not allow us to change it. The cottage is down the street closer to the beach. If our cottage is booked, our Casita (the 2 Queen Bed cottage) may still be open - <https://www.vrbo.com/241262?unitId=241262>
Cottage Surroundings: The Rainforest walk, just up the road, has a unique riparian system full of birds, frogs and plant life that is rarely seen elsewhere. Dogs are allowed on leash. Beddis beach is one of our only shell beaches on Salt Spring, very sunny in the morning to late afternoon. We are on the sunrise side of the island. Sunrises can be viewed right out the front window from the Queen size bed in the cozy bedroom. There are lots of wonderful places to sit and take in the scenes of nature this sweet little cottage has to offer. Muskoka chairs on the front deck, the hot tub which is sunken into the deck, a table for two on the deck facing the ocean view and a bench in the pond garden all offer scenic places to sit and enjoy the space.

Salt Spring Island : Salt Spring Island (SSI) is nestled in the Gulf Islands between Crofton BC which is near Duncan, BC and Sidney BC which is near Victoria BC. It has three ferry terminals, including Long Harbour that bring cars and passengers in from Tsawassen, near Vancouver BC. SSI also has three airlines that bring passengers into our downtown harbour from Vancouver (near the International airport). We highly recommend this for International travellers as it is easy and quick (20 minute flight) after a long flight over here and you can rent a car island. We also do ferry pickups and drop offs for a fee. We have so many customers say 'Salt Spring has so many things to offer, a two day stay just doesn't do it' and the tend to come back over and over again! It has the kind of magic we all seek and can't seem to get enough of in these hectic living times. We highly recommend you plan for a week or longer, especially from March to October as there are many outdoor, art and culture events happening.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Carl doesn't look like Diego so we opted for a Frida with Trotsky painting and didn't go as far as the uni brow on Tracy! We love to travel and when we do we like to hunker down in a private location with full kitchen, so that is the kind of accommodation we wanted to offer our guests. We are a bed and breakfast, but we don't serve breakfast. Instead we stock the kitchens with enough breakfast food choices to get you going when you first arrive. We have two cottages and a 2 bedroom villa now to offer families and couples a few choices. Being artists ourselves we wanted to offer our guests an aesthetic and unique vacation rental. Frida and Mexico worked beautifully for us and we hope it works for you too!

Why the Owner Chose Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada:
Both of our Beddis Road properties have ocean views and are close to a rainforest walk, one of the best Beaches on Salt Spring Island and a sweet orchard park.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Have a unique and special experience in our mexican inspired cottages and villa. Our guests always seem delighted by the aesthetics and personal touches to the accommodations we provide
