This beautiful European style farmhouse possesses charm, sophistication and history. This is a perfect family getaway - 12 acres back onto a protected area with hiking trails through giant trees. Peace and beauty abound. Close to several beaches.
This is a really big house with 5 bedrooms and a pull-out couch. It is on a spacious 12 acres that backs onto protected land - hiking trails for miles! This is a well-designed, immaculate and very well maintained home and will serve a family perfectly, or more than one family while still being comfortable.

We will often be there to meet the guests and give them a quick tour. We will likely stay in a cabin that is also on the property, but the guests will have 100% privacy. The parking for the cars is in the same area. We will be available by phone in case of any problems. If we are away, the house will be open when you arrive and a house manual will tell you everything you need to know!
We have a cat, Nebula, who will be moved to our cabin for the duration of your stay. She will not have access to the house, but if the door or window is left open, she may hop in, so you can let us know she is there and we will get her. There is a dog next door who is overly enthusiastic, and though there is a fence she sometimes gets loose and comes around, so be mindful of this if you bring small children. The owners of Lila are very aware and try their best to keep her off our property, but just a caution in case she gets out. Please don't encourage her to stay on the property. A simple "Lila, go home", will do the trick! No Dogs please.
Also, in the summer we are on well water. This is fine for bathing, cooking and coffee. It is absolutely drinkable and goes through a UV filter, however we choose to drink water from the cooler.
• Check-in time is 3PM.
This is our home and we expect guests to treat it as if it were there own home. No smoking, fireworks or excessively loud music.. Fun however, is allowed at all times! There is usually a fire ban in the deep summer on Salt Spring so a camp fire would not be possible. Most important, please note that water is a precious commodity on Saltspring in the summer, and we ask guests be very, very conscious of water use. Thank you!
