About this listing

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.

Charming little cottage in the Northern part of the island, with a private path leading right down to the beach. The cottage has many of the amenities you could want on a family vacation, and Rob was very responsive and flexible throughout our stay. The neighborhood was incredibly peaceful, quiet and close to a many nice hikes and only 10 minutes from the main town. Great stay, great island.

We had a grat stay at Rob's house. Everything was pretty much what we expected from the photos and info given. The beach is really close and is a neat place to explore. Location was good - not too far from Ganges. The full games cupboard was a hit with our family on a rainy day. Checking in and out was easy. All in all, we had a great trip!

The listing was as described, and the handwritten note on arrival offering to share fridge items was a nice touch Kathy.

Serene cozy cottage, Very lovely setting, well stocked with everything you could need. We enjoyed afternoons in the yard looking at the harbor, and walks along the beach.

I haven't met Kathy in person but the communication was well and there were a lot of notes and instruction at the place as well as info material about the area.

Another great stay at Vesuvius Beach - love the location, the cottage itself, and the organization of the hosts! The deck does not disappoint. The little amenities all make a big difference.

I enjoy the relaxed life on Vancouver Island where I can hike, bike, and kayak almost year round. Vesuvius beach is a relaxing place to go for my family. As soon as you step on to the island you are in a slower paced world.
