“Wonderful, Top Class Accomodation - Great Location”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Mariner's Loft is a first class place to stay, we loved it. The location meant easy walks to
town, and the view - amazing from the large deck. Even the parking lot is done beautifully.
Kitchen is beautiful and well equipped, comfortable beds - all good. Would we stay again,
yes, definitely.

My boyfriend and I were the very lucky winners of a two night stay at Mariner's Loft in early May. We were blown away by the beautiful suite, welcoming staff, and gorgeous view of Ganges Harbour! The location is perfect to experience everything Salt Spring has to offer, from the nearby shops and Saturday Market, to the amazing restaurants that are practically at your doorstep.

The suite felt like home, with ample parking, a lovely entry hall, comfy living room, big TV, lovely beds, huge ensuite bathroom, and lots of spare blankets and pillows. The added washer/dryer, and even an iron and ironing board, meant that we had everything we could possibly need. Even though we didn't do very much cooking, the kitchen had all of the tools that we would have needed to make a great meal, and the barbecue would have been fun to try out if we had more time.

This is an amazing location and I would recommend it to anyone looking for any kind of getaway! Whether it's for family, a group of friends, or a romantic weekend, Mariner's Loft has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We hope to come back sometime soon!

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!
