About owner/property manager
I enjoy providing quality accommodation to guests. Although I have been a teacher for many years, my current passion is buying and selling collectibles and antiques with my husband at our store in Victoria, British Columbia which is open 6 days/wk. Our suite is downstairs and we're quiet and quite private when we're home on Salt Spring. If you don't want contact with anyone, that's fine with us, although I love to greet you upon your arrival and show you your "home away from home". You will have lots of restful time. I am an experienced host and have another property with long term professional tenants who are wonderful people. Please let me know if there is anything that you need during your stay.

Why owner/property manager chose Salt Spring Island
Aerie Sunrise House is incredibly spacious, yet cozy with the woodstove in the sunroom and the fireplace in the living room. This custom designed home has been in our family since the 1970's and I remember hiking around the island on the many trails that still exist for all of you to enjoy. I provide a booklet that is now out of print and features all of the best places to give your hiking boots a good workout :) ! These paths are ranked easy, moderate and difficult. You will love the peace and quiet, summer and fall fresh air and winter musky smell of wood stoves as the ferry approaches Salt Spring Island. My guests have an exclusive offer on a 3-4 hr. sailing excursion! You receive a 10% discount off the price, for a magnificent must do experience. Join Captain Don Mellor aboard the sailboat L'Orenda for a casual sightseeing cruise through the calm waters of BC's Gulf Islands. Don's website is: www.lorenda.ca. The easygoing locals are always happy to share stories with you. There are many restaurants offering excellent fair trade, organic coffee. My favorite treat is 'Mocha Cafe' served up at 'Salt Spring Roasting Co.' made with organic Comino Chocolate and real whipped cream tightly swirled over the top!!
What makes this House unique
I love the harbour views,the bamboo grove and the sweet family of deer that often wander through the gardens. The forest green carpeting in the living room reflects the outdoors. The sunroom with the vaulted cedar ceiling is a peaceful haven to curl up and read one of the many books I have selected... or maybe just to sit and watch the fire in the woodstove. Guests have many choices of board games and enjoy hours of fun in the warmth of this space! There is a Roland piano in the corner overlooking the bamboo grove where families gather to sing together and enjoy seasonal music using the songbooks provided.

Salt Spring Great Place
Excellent place to stay. Extremely neat and clean. Very nice and helpful hostess. Quiet and peaceful, but close to town and easy access to roads, sites.
Great place for the family
This was a very nice place with a great owner. The place was very well outfitted and was very organized. The neighborhood was very quiet and there was a nice view of the Ganges harbor. One morning, there was even four deer roaming through the back yard. All in all, I would recommend this house as a great place for a stay on Salt Spring Island.
Perfect location from which to explore
We stayed at Susan's property for 5 nights. As this was our first time to Salt Spring Island we didn't know what to expect. Susan's place is an easy walk to Ganges, which is the main hub for activity on the island, but was enough removed so as not to be in the middle of busyness. From this location it is no more than 30 minutes (driving) to any activity on the island. The property itself was spacious and comfortable allowing us to really rest when we were at "home." We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Salt Spring!
Wonderful guests. A delight.
Tidy, quiet. Highly recommended guests.
Loved everything about our stay at Aerie House. The view from the deck is beautiful and the sun room is so warm and cheery.
The location is perfect for getting around to see everything. I will definitely be recommending Aerie House to friends and would like to return myself next year.
Just like home
Our family had a fabulously quiet stay at this lovely home. It was perfect to be so close to Ganges, but also a quiet refuge to return to at night.
It was super fun to meet you and host your family. Thank you for being so respectful and positive. Glad you got a chance to do some biking too
Please do come sgain!!
Wonderful Place to Stay
Aerie Sunrise is a great place to stay. The house is full of artwork which gives it a homey touch. The kitchen is fully functional as is the outdoor grill. We cooked several meals at the house and enjoyed doing so. It is a large house complete with living room, dining room, den and deck. The view from the deck is spectacular and we ended up spending much of our time there. The deck faces east, so sunrise and coffee went together.
Susan, the host, went out of her way to make sure that our visit was memorable. To start she left some coffee and a bottle of wine to welcome us. She was a wealth of knowledge about Ganges and the Island in general.
If I was in the area I would stay there again. I’m definitely a satisfied customer.
I'm so glad that all of you enjoyed your stay, and that the views on the deck and the spectacular early morning sunrises with the birds chirping in their birdhouse, fulfilled your expectation of island paradise :) A cup of locally roasted coffee in hand completed the experience, I'm sure! Nature offers many gifts!!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments and I would love to host you again. My property is available all year round. It's cozy in the winter months, sitting in front of the woodstove in the sunroom or living room fireplace reading or watching a movie.
Thank you also for leaving Aerie tidy and organized and for being the ideal guests!
