Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is a peaceful, relaxing, quiet cottage. The owners respect your privacy and want you to enjoy the tranquility. The wildlife is abundant and you will want to spend a lot of time sitting on the porch. The model railway was quaint and Kim's artwork is very beautiful. Salt Spring Island is a charming place but parking in Ganges can be challenging.
