A charming, small, comfortable apartment on a quiet street in Ganges, the Island's main town. Leave your car behind and walk to the famous Saturday market. Discover local artists in the galleries, visit unique shops, enjoy casual or gourmet dining.
The small garden apartment has a bedroom with a queen sized bed, fine cotton/linen bedding and goosedown comforter. In the sitting/dining area are two comfortable armchairs where you can relax and read or listen to your own music on the bluetooth speaker. The tiny kitchen is very well equipped with everything you might need to make simple meals. Coffee and a range of teas are provided. The apartment accommodates 2 adults.
The owners live on the property. The guest suite is very private with its own entrance as well as its own outdoor garden spaces. Guests have exclusive use of a small outdoor patio with a gas BBQ and also a garden area for relaxing in the shade of an old apple tree.

I'm a retired university teacher, originally from the UK, but more than half my life has been spent in Canada, first in Montreal and more recently Vancouver. I have travelled widely and lived and worked in the UK, Canada, the US and Japan. I am interested in history, current affairs and culture and have enjoyed some great Airbnb stays in apartments in Budapest and Buenos Aires. Now retired on Salt Spring Island, I spend my time gardening, cooking, reading and exploring this special place. I look forward to sharing it with guests .
