Guestbook comments from the owner

"Excellent Christmas Retreat. We have stayed at the cottage three times for Christmas. Twice at Tantramar and the last stay at Seagates. Our family of adult children is scattered and each year we pick a cottage to get together to celebrate the season. Over the years we keep coming back to these quaint cottages overlooking the ocean to reaquaint as a family. The cottages are extremely well appointed with all the conveniences for cooking and have a very homey atmosphere with the fireplaces and all the games in the cupboard for evening activity. Great places to stay. Will be going back soon."

Most relaxing setting!

  • 5 of 5

One of the most beautiful places I have stayed at. Well stocked house with everything you could want for a night away from the city! Comfortable beds, charming features and extremely clean. Our only negative comment was that we didn’t stay longer! Thank you so much to the hosts for this beautiful property!

Relaxing luxury -- the ultimate ocean-front location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location and the property! We had a lovely stay and will definitely come back again and again! The property is just steps from a lovely little beach looking out West to the ocean and to the Vesuvius ferry terminal (which is not a noise concern). The home was fully stocked with everything you might need and some that you might not!! It almost felt a little like coming home.

We highly recommend this VRBO property.

Awesome beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a fantastic weekend on Salt Spring Island. This beach cottage was our perfect home away from home, well equipped with everything we needed and super comfortable. The location was perfect and the water view was outstanding. Janet was exceptionally easy to deal with and we hope to return.
