About This Listing
Situated on just under an acre of private sunny property the house is at once close to nature, but with all the comforts to enjoy a cosy weekend or extended stay. All principal rooms and the large new cedar deck offer ocean, mountain and sunset views
The 180 degree views from the deck and most rooms in the house are of the mountains and ocean. From the deck you can see the small town of Croften and the ferry that runs between Saltspring and Vancouver Island. The house has three half level that follow the angle the hillside that it is built upon. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and a small ensuite with a shower. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and the third bedroom has a single bed and a double mattress in the loft. Also on the upper level is the main bathroom with a soaker tub under the skylight as the focal point.
On the mid level there is a small deck with a gas bbq. The kitchen, dining area, and laundry room is also on this level. There are two large skylights on this level that provide ample light. The living room which has a fireplace and big screen TV is on the lowest level and opens out onto a large wrap around deck.
Guest will have access to entire upper half of the house. This includes the main front deck and the side bbq. deck.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the completely separate basement suite, and try to have as low an impact as possible. That being said I am open to helping guests with most of their needs. On most summer weekend I will leave the Island and go camping.
There are taxi and buses on the Island. The bus stop is about a block away from the house. It goes to all ferry terminals as well as Ganges.

Brads place is the perfect getaway for friends or family. The place is luxurious yet homely with amazing views over the water in a quiet setting.
On arrival the place was clean & tidy and Brad gave us a good introduction.
We would definitely stay again & recommend to others.
We could not have had a better experience staying at Brad's gorgeous, quiet, sunny hillside dwelling! From the panoramic views of the nearby Sansum Narrows, to the cozy living room with two big couches and a flatscreen TV, to the jacuzzi tub (with skylight overhead!) and the sensuous wood accents connecting the whole experience together... it was truly a summer vacation to remember. A highlight was making Caribbean-spiced salmon with mango salsa over the BBQ while we talked and laughed over glasses of white wine... we can't wait to come back!
Brad is an excellent host; we thoroughly enjoyed his place, fabulous view, everything you need. Thank you very much!
Our family stayed here from June 27th to July 6th 2014. We had an amazing time! The house is so peaceful and in a beautiful setting. We spent lots of time on the deck overlooking the ocean. The house was very clean and well supplied. Brad was a wonderful host and was always close by and checking in with us to see if we needed anything. We will be staying here again in the future!
We had a great time on Salt Spring Island - and Brad's is a great place to stay. Lovely house, great views off the huge deck - and BBQ in style on the dedicated grilling deck, also with great views.
Everything was in great shape and exactly as described, including the well equipped kitchen and spacious living room, with comfy sofa's and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the ocean towards Crofton, in the distance.
