Photos and Description of the Vesuvius vacation house rental

7 mins to town, 2 mins to beach, 2 Bed 2 Bath Home on a sunny ridge

Vesuvius is the best place to be! The warmest, sunniest part of the island yet only a few minutes from Ganges. Ocean Meadows is two minutes by car or less than 15 on foot from sunny West facing Vesuvius Beach, as well as a coffee shop and licenced restaurant with oceanside deck. It is less than a 20 minute walk via a beautiful woodland trail to South facing Baker Beach.

Full inside and out renovation and landscaping recently completed! Result: A beautiful, high end all-new home in one of Salt Spring's very best locations in the heart of Vesuvius. Situated on a knoll which receives all-day sun, Ocean Meadows enjoys unobstructed views over unspoiled farmland to the ocean in the West.

Enjoy morning coffee on the private master bedroom deck (with twin loungers and sun umbrella) and spend lazy days in a hammock or lounger under the 400 ft.² covered south-West facing patio.

Inside this beautiful 1500 ft.² home you will find a bright open layout combining every modern convenience with island charm. The master bedroom features an elegant Italian Queen bed with new top-of-the-line pocket coil memory foam encased organic cotton covered mattress, sliding doors to its own deck, walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. The ensuite comes with heated floor, freestanding soaker tub, suspended vanity and plate glass shower. The second bedroom with solid pine Queen bed with high end mattress is immediately adjacent to an ultramodern full bathroom with suspended vanity and tub/shower. (Two additional children/pre teens can be accommodated on the two new matching living room sofas, the back cushions of which remove to provide comfortable flat 5'8" long beds .)

The spacious living room has just had a new high efficiency wood-burning fireplace insert installed (for use in colder months only, as Saltspring has frequent fire bans in the hot and dry season). The room has lovely views over the surrounding fields. The dining room features seating for six. A beautiful fir vaulted ceiling with two large great room ceiling fans spans the living and dining rooms.

The fully equipped kitchen has the same views and is completely modern with high-gloss soft close cabinets and new high-end stainless steel appliances. Plumbing fixtures throughout the house are Grohe.

The main floor laundry with ultra modern appliances is in a spacious foyer outside the bedrooms.

Living room and kitchen enjoy direct access to the covered outdoor seating area. This area features double hammock, hanging chair, USA - made high quality 6 person dining set and twin loungers all with comfortable Sunbrella cushions.

We think Ocean Meadows is in one of Salt Spring Island’s very best locations. Vesuvius and Baker beaches, West and South facing respectively and among the island’s warmest, are within walking distance. The house is also within walking distance of a coffee shop and store, and of a licensed restaurant with ocean front patio, specializing in local fish. Yet the location of the house is private and peaceful. Ganges with all its amenities is a 5 to 10 minute drive away.

Our family has been part and then full-time island residents for 20 years. We have owned several homes here over the years including waterfront properties. We think that in privacy, views, sunshine, warmth and convenience, Ocean Meadows is the best of them all! We are confident that you will agree and look forward to welcoming you.

We will happily accommodate off season stays at discounted rates, especially for long stays. Next summer can also be booked now. Please note that excepting to fill gaps in our calendar in summer, we do not rent Ocean Meadows for under 5 nights. In summer, so as to have a calendar which works best for most people as it fills up, Saturday to Saturday stays are normally required.
