  • Sooooo beautiful!!

    "From the moment we walked through the door, we loved this Studio Apartment!! Even though it's a studio, it is so spacious!! Susan and Don decorated the already wonderful space (fireplace, small kitchen) so elegantly and tastefully from the comfy couch and chair to an amazing king sized bed. And speaking of beds, imagine literally opening your eyes in the morning, and seeing Van Isle bay!!! We watched seal play, Canadian Geese and gray heron feeding and countless sail boats pass while eating al fresco on the balcony! Beautiful stay! We couldn't have been more pleased!! Would recommend it to anyone!"

  • Lovely stay on Salt Spring

    "The cabin was perfect for our little getaway and Bruce was wonderful with accommodating some scheduling changes. Salt Spring is always a treat and we will for sure return to the happy nest when we can!"

  • Beautiful

    "Russ and Terry, We are so glad we finally decided on your beach house to rent for our vacation. The property is absolutely stunning and the house is spotless and very comfortable. The owners have really thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and a true home away from home. We made most of our meals at the house and we found everything we needed to do so. Things like laundry detergent, dryer sheets, extra paper towels, napkins, firewood, dishwasher soap, shampoo, coffee, umbrellas, board games and movies are just some of the things available at the house. The beds were extremely comfortable and we loved bedding. We woke up feeling rested each morning. We all enjoyed the fire pit near the water and there was plenty of firewood on the property for us. We were also pleased to find a pack and play for the baby to sleep in and even a couple of baby feeding chairs. Barb is the housekeeper and we ended up calling her with a couple questions and she quickly came over and helped us out and even brought us an exersaucer for the baby! She was extremely helpful and friendly and we appreciated that. The owner, Russ, even called to make sure everything was going well and told my husband all about the resident eagles on the property and that we could drive down the road to Fanny Bay to see the sea lions. This property is so private and peaceful. The views are just amazing. We loved waking up to the sound of the Eagles talking. The kids loved the hot tub and the trails around the property. Communication was fantastic. Their daughter, Ashley, handled our booking and she always responded in a timely manner, answered any questions we had and was extremely pleasant to deal with. When we arrived home, we discovered we forgot a few things at the house, so we emailed right away and they immediately offered to mail our things to us! We can't say enough great things about this property and the owners. If you want to feel totally relaxed, enjoy stunning views, wildlife and a spotless and comfortable home then this is the vacation rental for you. We would recommend this home to anyone. Thank you so much."

  • Had loads of fun! Very accommodating.

    "Our family, to include 4 or 5 adults and 6 to 9 children at various times throughout our 8 day stay, enjoyed the cabin and property to its fullest. The grownups put up three tents to accommodate everyone and Grandma and Grandpa took advantage of the comfortable bed in the little cabin. Along with combing the land for interesting bugs and foliage, the kids spent hours jumping off the dock and swimming to their hearts content. We brought along some blow-up rafts which entertained them for hours as wel. The outdoor covered kitchen hosted a beautiful four burner gas stovetop and separate BBQ which met all our cooking needs to the nth. The shelves and tables were stocked with every conceivable “thing” you would ever need from pots to bowls to plates to cutlery to coffee makers, micro-wave, toaster, etc. etc. etc. The evenings spent around the fire-pit were made even more special with some pretty cool lighting. Because of the size of our party, we made the decision to rent the second outdoor toilet facility from Noni and were happy with our decision. One toilet for that many people was simply not enough. Noni, by the way, is one special lady who eagerly helps wherever she can. She's never too far away if you have questions or concerns or simply want to talk. Her cabin, situated on the property (next to the outdoor kitchen), is only steps away and easily accessible - in more ways than one. She was very patient with the youngest member of our family (6 years old) who seemed drawn up those steps for a quick knock on the door and a little chat! The only negative aspect to the stay were the numbers of wasps buzzing around the cooking area. Just as soon as the bacon or chicken or steak were being readied for the fire, the little pests appeared. Fortunately, they didn’t seem interested in us while we were eating... or perhaps that’s because we were always sitting around the fire. No one was stung, however, so that was a relief. Nevertheless, I will bring three or four traps with me next time... All in all, I think it was a special week for all of us and I wouldn’t hesitate to spend another mini vacation there again. Thank you Noni!"
