I'm a full time photographer and photo arts instructor. I live on Salt Spring Island.
Love travel, cooking, art, gardens, books. Easy, respectful guest.
Great place to stay, centrally located, close to ferry terminal and the village of Ganges. Lively conversations with Amy, the most welcoming host (she bakes wonderful apple pies.) 100% recommended.
Amy got back to me right away with clear directions & information about the suite. Was exactly as pictured / described on the website. We were very welcomed and had no problem finding the place / getting in. Family was warm & inviting - gave us recommendations on where to eat etc. Very positive experience. Quick trip from the ferry & into town made it a good location for us as we were biking.
We had a great time staying on Salt Spring island. The house is very convenient to Ganges, just 20-25min walk into town. Amy graciously offered to pick us up from the ferry terminal and also to drop us off - thank you so much we really appreciated it! The room is within the house, but it has a private access with own fridge and bathroom. We felt very welcomed and would recommend it to anyone!
Where to begin to share how unexpectedly special our overnight stay at Amy + Larry's was? From a welcoming hug as Amy kindly picked us up at the Long Harbour ferry terminal, to the wonderfully cool bedroom, and our great conversations over breakfast on her patio the next morning and in her backyard in the afternoon, staying at Amy's was a highlight of our trip.
Our room was very comfortable and naturally cool (a respite from the 30+ heat outside!). The house was quiet, clean and so peaceful; perfect for relaxing.
I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the country home as a place to stay.
Thank you, Amy!
What a perfect place to stay while on Saltspring! Amy and her family are so welcoming and can offer plenty of advise on places to go/things to do during your stay. Room was very comfortable especially the bed. Both Amy and Larry are talented artists--it was a delight to view some of their work and both studios. Will happily go back on future stay on the island.
We had a delightful stay at Amy and Larry's lovely home. They made us feel very much welcome and we were very comfortable. Salt Spring Island is just beautiful and Amy and Larry's suggestions about places to eat and visit were spot on. A trip to Amy's gorgeous studio was a highlight of our trip. Thank you both for being such warm hosts.
Amy and Larry are excellent hosts who were a lot of fun to stay with. They opened up their home for us and for that we are definitely grateful. Looking forward to visiting them again soon on Salt Spring Island!
Exactly what we needed!
We had a good time at Amy and Larry their place. They are very friendly and welcoming. We had nice conversations with each other and they explained us nice places to go. The room is nice and comfortable. If we go back to Salt Spring Island we will definitely contact Amy and Larry again.
Amy and Larry made me feel very welcome in there house and helped me to learn more about the island. Thanks
Amy was a very pleasant and considerate guest. Her photography profession was interesting to Catherine who is a keen amateur photographer. Also travels and literature were interests in common with us. We would be delighted to host Amy again and would recommend her to other Airbnb hosts.
