“Value for Money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

I stayed at Mariners Loft for a week with my girlfriend in December. We wanted a romantic getaway before the hectic Christmas holiday. We could not have picked a better accommodation on Salt Spring Island. We rented a two bedroom suite for a very reasonable rate, another couple joined us for two nights. We had our own bathrooms, it was an ideal set up for us. Thank you for the excellent customer service and assistant with the special touches.

Tip: They have suites designated for pets, so ask to bring your dog along. They left us a doggie treat, which our pup really enjoyed!

Went and stayed at Mariner's for a weekend and had a great time. The place was virtually brand new, close to Ganges for groceries, and had lots of room for us, another couple, and their toddler. Would recommend staying here to anyone.

I recently travelled to Salt Spring Island this summer for a Girl's weekend, there was 6 women in our group. I really wanted accommodation that gave us all space and privacy. Mariner's Loft totally met our needs! The two bedroom suites were fantastic for us because we were all given our own space. I calculated our costs and it surprisingly made more sense to book this wonderful suite instead of booking hotel rooms. We rented two suites side by side (they do not connect internally), we cooked every night in the fully outfitted kitchen, drank wine on the balcony (superb view), rented bikes around the corner and hiked around Mount Maxwell. I am planning on bringing my husband back to Mariner's Loft this winter for a weekend, really looking forward to it!

It is a pleasure to hear that your girlfriends and yourself enjoyed the vacation and utilized all the onsite facilities. When we met on Friday afternoon it sounded like you all needed a weekend getaway from the city. Great to hear you made it up to Mount Maxwell, one of my favourite places hands down.

I am sure your husband will love Mariner's Loft! See you this winter season Jillian.

I had the pleasure of staying at Mariner’s Loft for 2 nights this past September and would recommend it to anyone that puts a high value on comfort, location, amenities, and privacy. This was my first time on Salt Spring Island and certainly won’t be my last after experiencing Mariner’s Loft. I stayed in the 2 bedroom below the Penthouse Suite, and enjoyed sitting on the balcony while sea planes came in/out of the overlooking harbor. You’re also a stone’s throw away from Moby’s Pub, which is a great place to grab a bite to eat or enjoy a cold beer. My unit included amenities such as a gas fireplace, hardwood floors, large full kitchen, TV/cable, to name a few! Thank you to the management for creating such a fabulous Salt Spring experience. I will plan on being back for years to come!

It was wonderful to meet you Andrew and your friend during your stay on Salt Spring island. It sounds like you had a perfect Salt Spring Island experience. Moby's pub is an excellent choice to taste to local beer and meet some island locals. We hope to see you soon back on the rock!

Our stay at Mariner's Loft on Salt Spring Island was the highlight of my summer. There were four adults (two couples) who stayed in the two bedroom suite, tons of space in the suite! We were all so pleasantly surprised from the moment we walked in the front door. Fabulous views of the harbour and islands, gorgeous sunrises and excellent customer service. We felt very well taken care of from the moment we booked to the day we left. I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Closer to up stairs so you can get the beautiful sunlight from all of the gorgeous open windows- I l...

Hi Billy, personally standing from the balcony watching the sunrise in the morning is my favourite thing about Mariner's Loft. It was really fun helping you decide what activities your were going to do while you and your friends were on the island. I am glad the kayaking worked out for everyone!

We stayed at Mariner's Lofts in October for a company retreat. We were all impressed with the modern design and elegant finishings. The condos were bright and roomy and all had a magnificent view of Ganges Harbor. We all arrived on foot and were pleasantly suprised that everything we could possbily need was within walking distance. The beds were incedilbly comfortable and it was nice to enjoy our morning coffee on the large deck overlooking the harbor. The condos were equipped with everything you could possibly need.
Rebecca the property manager was very friendly and helpful. They owners and management team were instrumental in helping us plan a 3 day retreat. Their knowledge of the Island and its ammenities helped us plan an occasion the none of us will ever forget! I can't wait to return to Salt Spring Island and Mariner's Lofts!

Room Tip: All rooms have an amazing ocean view overlooking the harbor!

We stayed at the "lofts" with a large group from work at the end of October 2013. Couldn't be a better location or layout for such an occasion. Not only were the units a great setting and arrangement for our event, but the units were luxurious and well appointed. Every unit has a view of Ganges Inlet which really is nice to wake up to and start planning your day of enjoying everything the island has to offer. EASY walking distance to "downtown" and so many choices of eats, shopping and tours starting from the marina. Thrifty Foods is maybe 7 minutes walk away to do your grocery shopping if you choose to prepare and eat in the unit.
We were so impressed that my wife and I are already making plans to return in the Spring of 2014 so we can experience the island as a family with our daughters.

Room Tip: Third floor is stairs up from parking and a lot of stairs if walking to town Second Floor is minima...
