We had the best time at Jacqui and Dan's beachfront accommodation. The apartment itself was extremely clean and well equipped with everything that we needed - breakfast, towels, toiletries, and the spa was great as well! The location is fantastic - very private with a great view and only a short drive into the main town centre. We would definitely recommend staying here!
I had an excellent experience here! First of all, Jacqui and Dan (and Nina) were super hospitable, providing a ton of information about the island and things to do and see as well as offering me lifts to and from town when they could (particularly important since Salt Spring Island is really only car-friendly, for the most part, and I did not bring a vehicle with me). Secondly, the suite was very clean and very comfortable. In fact,this was one of the first places I've ever stayed (hotels and otherwise) where the pictures accurately reflect the accommodation. No disappointments here! The hot tub was super clean and the view from the hot tub was incredible. As far as the area goes, Vesuvius Bay, there is an amazing seafood restaurant overlooking the bay (not the cheapest but worth it) a 2 minute walk away and a small store that has some food items. Otherwise there is really no other food areas within walking distance. The area, overall, is super beautiful and quiet, the beach kind of deserted (which I loved), and the views spectacular--- not to mention the incredible wildlife (waking up and seeing bald eagles fly by the house and the sounds of seals in the bay-- blue herons, etc).
Thanks for your comments Adrienne.
We really enjoyed having Adrienne stay in our suite. She is very personable and we enjoyed chatting with her about the things she did while on the island. She was so quiet that we didn't even know she was here. We would love Adrienne to come and stay again.

Jacqui and Dan were great hosts, the place is very nice and hot tub was great. Beautiful view especially to watch the sunset. The hosts were accommodating and let us have complete privacy. Would recommend this place to anybody!

About the Host, Jacqui & Dan
I was born in Victoria, BC and moved to Salt Spring Island in 1984; having lived here for almost 30 years now. My husband was born in Penticton and has lived on the island since he was a toddler. We purchased our home in 2005 and immediately knew that we wanted to share this beautiful, oceanfront location with others and decided to operate a bed and breakfast since the house is so large at 3300 square feet on 3 floors. We completely renovated the first floor, oceanfront suite in a rich and warm caribbean theme and opened up for business as Beachfront at Vesuvius.
We love the peace and community spirit on Salt Spring Island.
