Anna Paul and Rebecca were wonderful hosts. They immediately made me feel welcome and were very kind and considerate. The location could not have been better quiet serene and peaceful. Easy access to a very pretty beachs d not far from a lovely seafood restaurant. The accommodation was spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable and covered in freshly ironed white bed linen. A real treat. All the organic Produce was very tasty but the home made pastries were to die for! I would love to come back !

Sweet white, light-filled farmhouse. Well appointed with just the right touches, such as welcoming flowers and homemade granola and jams.

I had a great time on SS. Paul was kind and showed me around when I got there. They gave me good privacy and offered fresh fruits from the garden. I was there for only a weekend but it was relaxing and peaceful. I would go again for sure :)

I stayed here with my Mom on a mini Salt Spring get-away. The B&B is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Ganges, and off a main road. The property includes the Blue Horse Folk Art Gallery which is part of the Salt Spring Island Gallery Tour. I connected with Anna via email to arrange booking details, but dealt with Paul once we arrived. Paul offered us a comprehensive overview of the property, our suite, and left us with a map of local hiking trails. The grounds were beautiful. Totally immersed in nature with a pond and a quiet outdoor place to relax. The suite was stocked with all things organic - milk, yogurt, granola, teas, including fresh baked bread on our arrival. The space was bright, airy, clean and so welcoming. Paul brought fresh pastries for our first morning. Warm fresh bread was ready upon our arrival. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and the bed was so comfortable. The B&B also has a rainwater cistern (triple filtered, I think) providing the cleanest water. Honestly, my hair and skin felt rejuvenated after a shower. We were able to take in the Saturday market, dine in Vesuvius, and take a local hike along the ocean. We truly enjoyed our stay here! Thank You, Paul & Anna.

We stayed at the Orchid cottage and found the unit very clean and pretty. The cottage has a pleasant, easy-going vibe as people mill about and the owners we're accommodating. There are a lot of places to stay in Salt Spring and this cottage delivers a good feel of the island. Because it's in the country the outside elements are a factor but that's all part of the experience. When we stayed it was in late July and warm so the cottage can get warm at night and opening a window isn't really an option. Mosquitos are an issue if windows are open. Probably a quiet fan would solve the issue and make the space comfortable.

This is our second time staying at the Bloom. We love this place so much that we decided to come back again this year! The suite is very nice and bright, and the bed is super comfortable! Ana & Paul prepared fresh fruits, homemade granola, yogurt, milk, bread and jam for us – they were all very delicious. It's a very charming place to stay. I highly recommend it!
