A quick note - if this room shows as booked, please check my other room (Room 1).
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!
Donn is a great guy, an amazing musician, and very helpful with logistics when exploring Salt Spring. I had a great time on my visit.
Nice place, in a great location, just a short walk from town. It was clean and quiet. Donn is a pleasant host with an impressive array of musical gear - though we only stayed 1 night so we didn't get to hear him play.
Donn was a great host. I found him very friendly and so easy to talk to. His home felt like being at home. Salt Spring Island is a magical place and having a quiet, peaceful place to sleep at the end of the day made this a perfect get away. I hope that we have a chance to stay with Donn again.
We stayed three nights at Donn's and we really enjoyed it. Donn is a really nice guy, very caring. Every morning the breakfast was great . We just had an overview of his music but we look forward to hear more ! It is a good place to stay !
We booked this room the night before arriving and Donn made everything easy. He responded very quickly and was very kind and accommodating. It was really great having Donn host my sister and I. The room was very clean and well kept. The excellent breakfast was a huge bonus. We explored Ganges during most of our stay, but I hope to hear Donn play the lap steel next time. Thanks Donn for having us!
Hi to all,
Stayed at Donn's place one night. Salt Spring Island and the town of Ganges are fun places and well worth the visit. Donn's place is relatively close to the action being about halfway between Moby's and the Treehouse Cafe. A short 10-12 minute walk from the Ganges Marina but bring a light if walking after dark. The room (#2) was clean and spacious with a hardwood floor a desk and chair. Wi-Fi as well. The bed was comfortable but a bit short if your tall (6ft+). The room is upstairs so noise from above is none existent. However, the wooded floors tend to creek a bit when walked on. The room entry door is a sliding privacy screen that does allow in light from the hallway, however, the light can be turned off. The bathroom does not have a shower, you must go downstairs to shower. Donn is a gracious soul having the kitchen table & kitchen ready for our breakfast. However, we were unable to stay having faced a short deadline on our itinerary. Donn answers his emails promptly and will call your phone numbers as needed.
For our stay the place, the location and the price made this a good value. Thanks to Donn for opening his home. Mike
Our stay with Donn was great! he was very welcoming, helpful, friendly and organized. The room was clean, big and comfy. The house is only a short walk away from Ganges which was perfect! I recommend staying with Donn 100%!
Great place to stay due to its proximity to the centre of town. We didn't have a vehicle and it was very easy to get around from this place as our home base. Our room had a great balcony where we could see the stars and the room was spacious.
