  • Accommodation


    Currently no indoor bedroom available. Have creative and fun camping/glamping situation to offer. Strong wifi and full use of the kitchen and living areas in our large house. Our property is big and fun/kid friendly. We are located close (10 minute walk) to the main town Ganges, situated around a beautiful harbour where there are: 3 art/craft/organic produce markets/wk; many venues with live music in the evenings and lots of arts, sports and cultural events all summer long. Because of its beauty and creative community, Salt Spring Island is a tourist destination yet is still small enough to be fun, friendly and super safe.
