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.

Kathy was really great at being in touch about arrival etc... and was accessible if any issues came up, which didn't! The cottage is spacious and cozy with very comfortable beds. It was a lovely place to spend a few days.
The kitchen was well equipped and the sky lights offered lots of light even on cloudy, rainy days. The view of the ocean is great but is only available on the deck - which we didn't have much use of due to the rain. When the sun came out the walk to the beach, the beach itself and the cottage were great. Unfortunately the massive amount of fruit flies made having any food or drinks out a nuisance. The beds could be better - especially for those of us that are getting older....
All in all a good value for the price.
Hi Carole, Rob and I were at the cottage on Saturday and Sunday. There were fruit flies on Saturday so I spent most of Sunday cleaning and thought I got rid of them all. It is weird though how they suddenly show up.
I have never had one complaint about the beds before. It's unfortunate you were uncomfortable.
Our stay was wonderful, the cottage was perfectly located with access to a beautiful beach, walking trails and running paths. It was very clean, well equipped, bright and comfortable. The kitchen was especially well equipped and we took advantage of the island's fresh produce and fish and dined in. The outdoors deck was a nice bonus. We met our host Kathy, who was very friendly and knowledgeable about the island. We enjoyed it so much that we booked it for a third night !
Absolutely perfect place. Kathy was great at communicating and providing local information. Staying in her place was like staying in your best friend's home. We loved the proximity to Vesuvius Bay and the beach access. Would definitely stay here again. Lots to do on Salt Spring Island.
Kathy welcomed us and showed us around. The house is actually more spacious than expected and the location is excellent. We had a wonderful time at their place
Fantastic place. The house was great - spacious and comfortable, but we enjoyed the deck best of all! Great views of the water. Perfect location overall - quiet and peaceful, easy and very short trail down to the beach with good swimming. 10 minute walk to a good, budget friendly restaurant right on the water. We loved this place and would definitely come back. No problems with any of the arrangements.
The house was clean and organized when we arrived. It's a perfect place for relaxing and family gatherings. All the amenities you want are there!
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.
I love to garden, but the deer eat everything here unless you have a seven foot fence, so I've gone to the easy care alternative of learning to paint them instead.
