We are located on Channel Ridge looking toward Vancouver Island at approximately 450 ft. elevation. This makes us about eye level with the eagle's nest in the front yard. Our custom home on 5 secluded acres is an elegant West Coast contemporary built in 2005 that offers absolute privacy, sensational ocean vistas, and majestic forests with rambling trails for hiking, or biking on several hundred adjacent wild acres.

Guest(s) are limited to the number of their party specified at booking.

Smoking is NOT allowed on the property at any time, inside or outside the house.

Daily (or irregular) cleaning services are not included in the rental rate or cleaning fee. If desired, we can usually suggest a local reputable cleaning person for interim cleanings on multi-week stays, if desired. These arrangements, if desired, shall solely be between the Guest(s) and said persons and paid directly by the Guest(s) upon services rendered.

Guest(s) shall allow Homeowner access to the property for purposes of repair and inspection on 24 hour notice.

The Homeowner is not responsible for any accidents, injuries or illness that occurs while on the property, premises, or use of the facilities, or the loss of personal belongings or valuables by guests. By contracting the property, Guest(s) agree to solely and expressly assume all risks of any harm arising from their use of the property.

The security deposit shall be impacted if required for damage to the property or furnishings by Guest(s) or their pets.

Pets, if approved, require an additional $200 cleaning fee. Please be diligent cleaning up after your pet. Not doing so may additionally impact your security deposit. Please don't leave them unattended on the property. Any pet damages will also impact your security deposit. All pets should be treated with a topical flea and tick repellent approximately three (3) days prior to arrival. Fleas and ticks are present on Salt Spring and though they rarely carry "Lyme" disease or other pathogens, can cause illness to humans and pets if contacted.

No children are permitted in the soaker tub at any time without adult supervision. There are certain health risks associated with the use of any hot tub. Guest(s) accept use of the tub at their own risk.

Our housekeepers drain, clean, and refill the soaker tub prior to arrival, but tub will not reach "temperature" until apx 2 hours after Guest(s) initiate the heating process.

Never stand on the tub covers! They are for insulation purposes and are not designed to support human weight. If damaged, Guest(s) will be charged for replacement. Remember when not using the tub, leave cover on, so tub will remain "at temperature".

The fireplace has a wood burning firebox. Please be certain the flue is open and the screen is always in place during use. Additionally, said fires are not to be left unattended. Between May 1st – Oct 1st, the fireplace may not be used, due to local fire restrictions. During the burning season, firewood is not provided, but can be obtained locally and owner will provide contact info by request.

The property is on a septic system which is quite effective. However, it will be damaged if improper material is flushed. DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. No feminine products should be flushed at anytime. If it is found that inappropriate products have been flushed that affect the proper functioning of the system, the Guest(s) damage deposit will be impacted.

Bamboo Grove is the perfect space to unwind, relax and refresh your spirit! The space is clean, furnished beautifully and a stones throw away from great hiking trails. Eliot was the perfect host, very helpful when we needed him and so friendly. Will absolutely book again!

Eliot's home was one of the most fantastic vacations we've ever had as a family. The home has a beautiful kitchen to cook in, and a great view of the bay and the mountains to watch the sunset and sunrise every night--something I don't usually do in my daily life so this was an unexpected gift of the place. There was ample room for our family of five and then some. The home itself is beautiful to move about in, comfortable in its Japanese-influenced architecture. We enjoyed exploring the island's natural beauty, watching from the deck for the eagles feeding their young in a nearby tree every morning, and often hiking on trails behind the house and beyond. The shops and farmer's market on Ganges were fun to duck into; there was an ecotour of green homes we enjoyed; an intimate concert of about 150 people on a Friday evening of a fantastic bluegrass musician-CharlieParr; as well as kayaking. Seems like whatever we did we enjoyed ourselves, and we did do more. It was an adventure taking the ferry boats to our destinations. I would direct all my family and friends to try to stay here.

A fabulous house in a stunning location! This house was one of the highlights of our stay on Saltspring. The view, peace and quiet and wildlife (deer and eagles) are amazing. Very well equipped, spacious and spotlessly clean. Eliot was delightful and very helpful. We'd stay again in a heartbeat!

This house is stunning. The views are incredible, everything - including kitchen items - is well done and comfortable. We were two families with toddlers and the setup with a separate guest wing was very convenient and private for us. Eliot is kind and accommodating and does everything to keep his guests happy without ever intruding. This is the countryside so there are a few critters around the very clean house - just be prepared for that. Definitely one of my favourite airbnb rentals.

In almost every way, Bamboo Grove earns a 5 star rating. The very finely appointed homes is exceptional. I felt like I was staying inside a piece of art. The main rooms open to an outstanding westerly view, and the sunsets were glorious. We enjoyed the property's tranquil privacy and the excellent trail system that connects to it. Eliot was a great host and always easily available. The home is also conveniently close to some great beaches and just short fifteen minutes to town. For those without four-wheel drive or a vehicle with good clearance, the gravel drive might prove challenging. Also, the home doesn't have air-conditioning, and on the rare 90 degree-plus days, the home felt uncomfortable from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Overall, we had a great week at this special place. I highly recommend it.

My children and I just returned from an exquisite stay at Bamboo Grove! When we arrived the house was meticulously clean and we were blown away by the view of the ocean and mountains etc. Eliot was a gracious host and I cannot wait to return again to Bamboo Grove. Thank you Eliot! Kaya
