Spindrift Oceanfront Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This secluded little peninsula is a perfect place to enjoy the quiet natural beauty of Salt Spring Island and we will definitely be back for more. Accommodation was very comfortable. The views are spectacular and since the property is only accessed by guests it is private and peaceful. The innkeepers were well organized, friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: All cottages are oceanfront and well furnished.

My wife and I stayed in the Emmaline cottage - it had everything we could possibly want, including an incredible view. The staff were wonderful, the environment was pristine, and the atmosphere was relaxing. A perfect stay!

My first stay was last week, but it won't be my last. This is a very special place for those who like quiet, private settings and love nature, wildlife and simplicity. Beautiful property and quaint cottages with friendly and helpful innkeepers. This place is just excellent, I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Constance is a studio in blue with great views from the inside and the awesome deck. I really liked...

We had a wonderful and very relaxing stay at the "Amelia" cottage. The cottage was extremely clean, well stocked and has a beautiful ocean view deck. The staff is really friendly and helpful. This is a very large oceanfront property with private beaches and only a ten-minute drive to town where you can find grocery stores, restaurants, shops and kayak rentals. It was a very peaceful and invigorating experience! We highly recommend it.

Just returned from three amazing nights at this retreat and already want to go back. The cabin " Sylvia" was clean, comfortable, and well stocked. The owner described to us how she had built the log cabin herself from a book in the 1970's which made it all the more special. We launched our kayak from the first beach and paddled to Prevost Island the first day and the chain islands into Ganges the second. The property is so large for the number of guests that you could always find a peaceful place to rest and relax. On the south point there is a double adirondack chair to sit back and take in the amazing Gulf Island view with a glass of wine. Thank you for taking such care to keep this property so unspoiled it is truly a gem.

We were looking for a quiet retreat for a weekend away from Vancouver and this trip was perfect. It was a fast and easy commute on the ferry and then we had complete solace in nature on this little peninsula in the bay.
There were deer that ate out of your hand, a private beach and we stayed in a handmade wooden cabin that was beautiful.

They are on the first street after the ferry and close to the center of town, and main docks.

We will definitely go back.

Just back from a very enjoyable anniversary weekend spent at this awesome property... It was the perfect choice for a relaxing, peaceful and private getaway for my wife and I. The fact that the property has so few cottages for such a large tract of land, gave us the feeling of having our own private resort. Add an oceanfront deck, two secluded beaches, extensive natural vegetation, plenty of accessible shoreline, and beautiful sunsets... simply stunning! The cottage was super clean and well appointed, with a very comfy bed. Amenities are a short drive away - groceries, restaurants, shops, ferries. Highly recommended for couples.
