About Mickey McLeod

I was born and raised on the south coast of BC. Salt Spring Island became home in 1981 after a visit to my brother Ross who has been here since 1978. He was managing Mansell Farm where I joined him. In 1984 my long time friend Robbyn Scott and I attended a mutual friends wedding and we rekindled our our relationship. In the spring of 1985 Robbyn moved to Salt Spring and joined Ross and I at Mansell Farm. We all put together a big market garden and sold it from our roadside stand as well as at the old school Saturday Market nothing like one of today.

Our daughter Metta was born in Aug of 1985 and now lives on the island with her two kids.

From the mid 1980's to 1996 I ran a small custom sawmill business on the island providing material for Artspring, Moby's Marine Pub, Creekside, Grace Point Square and many homes.

In 1996 Robbyn and I started Salt Spring Coffee which we still own and operate today. We moved our office and production to Richmond in 2010 but our flagship cafe and where it all started is still located in Ganges.

I get to travel a lot with my work at Salt Spring Coffee but I must say one of my favorite places is right here on Salt Spring Island. The community is diverse and supportive with some of the best organic food on the planet being produced here.

I hope you enjoy Salt Spring Island and Daly Vista as much as we do.

Why Mickey McLeod chose Southern Gulf Islands

Mt Baker Crescent is a hidden gem on Salt Spring Island. With only 10 houses on the street we are tucked in at the end with one of the nicer views. The neighbours are very friendly but like to keep things mellow and quite so being respectful of that is great.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully renovated, amazing view, quiet, private location but still very close to town, nice big deck, great kitchen with everything (we enjoyed the coffee maker so much we want to buy the same one for ourselves!), and the list goes on! You will definitely be glad you came.

Mickey's place was the perfect combination of beautiful location, creature comforts and a great view

  • 5 of 5

We had all the space and amenities we needed and a great view! You get the morning sun and a lovely view of the harbour. The house is clean and comfortable and located just a few minutes from downtown Ganges. The kitchen is well equipped for all your cooking needs. Beds were comfy. The deck is a wonderful spot to read, eat, enjoy the view. I recommend a stay at this VRBO!

Perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Daly Vista. The location above the town of Ganges is ckose enough for a great walk and far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.

Clean and well laid out home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this home, it was very clean. It also had a very well equipped kitchen, a large fridge/freezer and even a crock pot! We might plan to eat there more if we visit again. There was a renter in the basement but she was very quiet. The only thing I would have changed would be to add window coverings to the east facing windows as it got super hot during our visit and we weren't able to block out the heat in the morning. But a very nice view of the ocean and nearby islands.

Very-well equipped, close to town, love to come back

  • 5 of 5

We had very relaxing 5 nights in this very-well equipped apartment. Especially the kitchen is more than complete incl. coffee-grinder, water-purifier, broad set of spices (but be so kind and fill up if you empty one during your stay ...) etc.

Beds are comfortable and mattresses are not as soft as you find in many other locations.

We had one day with really heavy rain and stayed inside, enjoying the online and netflix access.

One minor thing was fixed by the owner the same day, so very-well deserved 5 stars.

If you follow the road to the other end ~300m) then you find a path - Bishop's Trail - which you can walk down to Ganges town in 15 minutes - especially helpful on Saturdays when town is crowded for the market day.

We hope this was not the last time at this cosy island - and definitely this appartment will be our first choice again!
