I am here to make you feel welcome and ensure that you have everything you need to make your stay on Salt Spring Island and at Sunnyside Guest Suite enjoyable.
The location make getting to town easy and the access to the rest of the Island is ideal. Total privacy in the garden setting makes you feel away from it all. The yard has a retreat-like feel and is very close to nature with birds, frogs, rabbits and deer wandering through at any time!
Public transit on Salt Spring will take you all over the Island and and is just steps away from your door! Parking is included with a covered car port for your bikes or motor-cycles. The Suite is moments away from the seaplanes and within 20 minutes to each of the 3 ferry terminals.

I want you to feel relaxed and at home - you will have plenty of privacy here. Small pets welcome, smoking only permitted on the outside deck or in the garden area. Please try and leave the kitchen area the way you found it when you checked-in.
Janet is a wonderful host who was an absolute pleasure to stay with. She's put together a fantastically cosy little guest suite and really made the most out of such a little space, with a great assortment of essentials well stocked. She was incredibly friendly, helpful, and accomodating and the wonderful hot tub and garden were a great place to decompress - we certainly made the most of it and spent every night in it (rain or shine)! While the suite is a 20-30 minute walk to Ganges (depending on direction - suite is at top of a hill) it's along a fairly busy road and not the most scenic walk - however the bus picks up and drops off right outside the suite, and if you plan the timings accordingly it's a great way to get around - the local taxi service was also very reliable. Thanks again Janet!
We had an amazing time on Salt Spring island at Janet's place! The little compact suite is super cute, and has very thing you need (super comfy bed). The back terrace is beautiful with access to the hot tub and fire pit. Super close to town but also very quiet & in the trees. Would definitely return :)
Janet's suite really exceeded our expectations. She has designed the suite so that all essentials are available and a few surprise luxurious that we were thrilled to find. The space is laid out in the most efficient way so that you have everything you need without and cluttery extras. Janet herself was only friendly and accommodating and took great care to make sure we were comfortable. I would very, very highly recommend the suite.
This was a great stay on Saltspring and Janet was a great host. The place was clean and we'll appointed. Fire pit and hot tub were a great bonus and location was close to everything we wanted to do on Saltspring. Janet let us store our kayak in her driveway when we went out for the day and was quite amenable to all our questions and requests.
A really wonderful stay. The place was super clean and welcoming, including everything we needed from lots of towels to a great kitchenette with hot plate, fridge, microwave and toaster. It was easy to get into town and the other places we wanted to visit from here, and Janet made herself available for any questions we had. There were so many birds in the backyard, even hummingbirds, what a treat! I would definitely stay here again with my partner. It may be awkward to stay with anyone else, as the space is small and the bathroom is in the same room (around the corner in a nice little bath nook).
Many thanks Janet...It was a pleasure meeting you. My husband & I had a lovely 3 night stay at Sunnyside suite! It was perfectly located within walking distance to my daughter's home (which is in a start of ongoing renovation!) and of course to the village of Ganges with lots of hiking close by...we particularly enjoyed Burgoyne bay...sunshine in Feb....was an added bonus! Your place was small (but we knew that before we arrived) but it was clean/quiet and had all the comforts of home. It was very thoughtful of you to stock the fridge with a few start up basics...always a nice surprise to an Airbnb stay...and real wine glasses so I could enjoy some BC wine! We enjoyed the hot tub/movie night with our two granddaughters ..thank you for suggesting we bring them over for a hot tub experience.
We travel to SSI quite often due to the family connection there and who knows we may see you again .... bet your gardens look lovely in summer! We would have no hesitation recommending your suite to a single or a couple considering a visit to the Island.

I had a great time at the Sunnyside cottage, the host was very kind and welcoming, we were given lots of information about the Island, like dining, points of interest or ivents. The weather was good so we were able to take advantage of the outdoors but also spend a lot of time visiting restaurants, gift shops, galeries, coffee shops, book stores etc.
