Vesuvius Beach on Saltspring

The Space

Delightful two bedroom, one bathroom cottage in sunny Vesuvius Bay on Salt Spring Island. As cozy in the winter as it is in the summer! Our kitchen is stocked with spices, condiments, small and large appliances, and other basics. We have our own beach access down a private pathway, that makes kayak launching a breeze.

Relax on the decks and enjoy the picturesque sunsets of Vesuvius Bay, or stroll onto the beach for a leisurely day of reading or swimming in the warmest bay on Salt Spring Island. Ganges is less than a ten minute drive, where you can experience the Saturday market or enjoy a great meal in any number of exceptional restaurants.

If you just want to kick back and relax at the cottage and don't feel like cooking, there is a nearby coffee shop that also serves baked goods and a wonderful seaside restaurant only a five minute walk away.

For a unique experience, you can visit the local movie theatre located in an old hall that gets all the latest releases. For golfers, the course is a five minute drive away.

Biking, hiking, golfing, kayaking, shopping at the Saturday market, studio hopping, swimming.... Salt Spring is the place to be and you can enjoy it all in our quiet and peaceful cottage near the ocean.

  • The cottage was very big and clean. We were 4 adults and 1 toddler and we had a lot of space.
    Kathy and Rob were very easy to deal with and their indications were very clear.
    We'll come back if we have the opportunity!

    Response from Kathy & Rob:

    Thanks Mannaic, we would love to host you again! I will add your child's book to my collection for others to enjoy.

  • We LOVED our home away from home on Vesuvius. The house was nicer, warmer and more spacious than the pictures represented. Very tastefully decorated and well-appointed. Comfortable and beautiful light (even in the winter). We even did some entertaining and all of our guests complemented us on our place! Kathy and Rob had just the right amount of communication and were there when we needed them. We will definitely be returning and telling our friends. Thanks!

  • We loved Kathy's place! Salt Spring Island is beautiful and this house is located on the best beach on the island. Kathy was great and her house was perfect for our weekend stay. You can cook, swing, bbq, play games, or just hang out and watch the gorgeous sunsets/sunrise. Thank you for sharing your home.

    Thanks Jessica,
    I'd love to meet you face to face some time. So glad that you enjoyed your stay in our cottage.

  • Wonderful beachside cabin in a lovely neighborhood. Comfortable and relaxing - I watched the ferry come and go from bed! The beach is a short stroll across the yard. The cabin is outfitted with everything you would need.

  • A beautiful home to relax in and explore the island. Nice deck space for lounging, bright open kitchen with more space to sit and a path right down to the beach! Easy to find and well supplied.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing long weekend on Saltspring and the cottage made our experience that much more comfortable. Highly recommended if you are making a trip to Saltspring Island!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Kathy's home on Vesuvius Beach. All was as advertised and more. The house was well-stocked with basics, appliances, dishes/cutlery, towels, etc..

    Kathy's description, instructions and help prior to our arrival were accurate and was much appreciated also.

    Lovely home and location. Plenty of room. Wanted to stay longer and would like to recommend this home to others.

I am a Self-employed interior design consultant and mother of three. My husband and I enjoy the relaxed life on Vancouver Island where we can hike, bike, and kayak almost year round. Vesuvius beach is a relaxing place to go for our family. As soon as you step on to the island you are in a slower paced world.
