A Good Place to Stay! Room 1

House - Private room · Park Drive, Salt Spring Island, BC V8K 2S1, Canada

The Space

A quick note: If this room shows as booked, please check out my second room listing (Room 2).


Guests have their own private bedroom upstairs in a quiet, clean 2-bathroom house, VERY close to the small town of Ganges on beautiful Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Canada.

Your room is simple, clean, and peaceful, a welcoming retreat for someone needing a base from which to explore the many beaches and natural wonders of the island. Couples are welcome. The home is not suited for children or pets.
There is a phone for local calls and very high-speed wireless Internet access is available in your bedroom or in the shared living room of the B&B. There is off-road parking.

A large front deck allows guests to enjoy the outside view and the large lot with many fruit trees.

A short, walkable distance gets you to many restaurants and shops, most offering something of local flavour and on Saturdays we have the famed outdoor market where local artisans, artists and farmers sell their wares. If you miss the market you can explore the studio tour of the island, among other activities.

If you want to travel farther on the island without using a car or bike, you can take the island's bus to Vesuvius Bay, Fernwood Dock, Long Harbour, or all the way south to Fulford Harbour.

A continental style breakfast is available in the shared kitchen each morning after 8 am in this vegetarian (not vegan) household. If you have special needs related to food, please let us know.

Imagine a comfortable place with a friendly computer specialist and musician as your host!

  • I had a great stay at Donn's place! He is a very friendly and interesting bloke who made sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. He also knows the island really well and was very helpful in giving me advice about where to go and the best ways to get there. I would stay at Donn's again and would recommend his accommodation to anyone traveling to Salt Spring Island.

  • Donn was a wonderful host. His B&B is very close to Ganges and the rooms are quaint and cozy. A tasty breakfast was provided and the kitchen was free for our use. Donn is very easy to get along with and was extremely open to sharing his space with us. We had a lovely time!

  • Donn is an amazing host as well as a very nice guy and great to chat with.
    We asked him for advice about some activities we wanted to do and he took the time to find out with his friends, printed some information, and made things easier for us.
    His place is very well located, walking distance from Ganges.
    We had a very pleasant stay
    Thanks Donn!

  • My friend and I stayed at Donn's place during a quick visit to Salt Spring Island. Donn was very friendly, thoughtful and our room was very clean. Perfect location - only about 7-10 minute walk to town. Oh, and breakfast was excellent! We had a great time - thanks again, Donn!

Musician / Audio Engineer / Electronics Designer
I'm a musician, singer/songwriter, and recording engineer/producer. I also design and manufacture electronics equipment for recording and broadcast studios. I grew up in Deep Cove (North Vancouver), British Columbia, Canada. I've lived all over the "lower mainland" and moved to Salt Spring Island about twelve years ago. Since moving here, I've played a lot of music, mostly accompanying other performers on lap steel guitar or bass. I also perform solo gigs, garden parties. Last year I formed a new band called "Duck Creak" with musical friends Ken Lunn, Bruce Everett and Valdy. During the summer months we usually have a few nights at the Tree House Cafe in Ganges, a favourite music venue and fine restaurant! I enjoy the outdoors, although between fixing computers for Mac users, playing music, recording, building electronics equipment... I never get enough time! I've been vegetarian since the mid 80s. I'm pretty laid back, as is the reputation for many of us west coast folks. I have a good sense of humour and like to be around others with same.
