Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We managed to land on Salt Spring Island in a massive snow storm (apparently a rare enough event). Sabine's house looked gorgeous in the snow, and the loft was warm and cozy and had everything we needed. I would definitely like to go back in better weather!

  • I actually never met Sabine in person even though her house is right by the entrance to the space.This didn't make a difference as when we arrived there was a lovely note telling us to go upstairs ans make ourselves at home. Since this was a stop for us to secure a place to live it worked out great. We needed to stay an extra night and it was no problem. It's a little haven of quietness and privacy.
    The space is clean and just lovely. The kitchen has a little table and chairs, a toaster oven to cook in. The sink is in the washroom but we got used to that. It's super clean and warm. The view is lovely too. The bed was a bit firm for me but there is a foam bed in the loft that I put on top of the mattress and that made it perfect. There are tow chairs and lamps so it felt like a little studio. There is internet but no cell service which is how most of the island is anyway. We loved being able to have a such a private relaxing space to land after picking up and moving from the north. Sabine was very accommodating when we needed to leave our car top in her studio for a couple days. Great rental I would have relatives or friends stay when they come to visit us.

  • Sabrine's place is a dream come true for me! I needed a getaway from the city and time to find inspiration and that's what I came away with. Her place is quiet, overlooking the forest and exactly the type of landscape I always loved.
    Sabine was available and willing to answer my questions about the bus route etc.
    Her place is better accessible by car or bike as it is not right at the harbour but it is worth any distance. I would recommend her place to travellers who are looking for forest, peace, hiking trails etc.
    Thank you Sabine. Will sure do my best to visit again!

  • Thanks Sabine
    We had a lovely restful stay at your private woodsy accommodation. It's a good centrally located on the island location just a shirt drive to Ganges & the great Sat market there.
    Appreciated the privacy & comfy loft unit. Very clean bright with enough coffee & food storage space to make our stay very pleasant.
    Thanks again

I'm a cheerful, active and fun loving person spending as much time outside as I can preferably with friends biking, hiking or running. I would like to do more traveling but living here on this island makes up for having to stay at home too much. I enjoy greeting my guests, making them feel comfortable and telling them about Salt Spring.
