Salt Spring Island Accommodations

Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada, is the jewel of the Southern Gulf Islands. It is nestled up against the east side of Vancouver Island. Named by officers of the Hudson's Bay Company for the briny saltwater springs on the north end of the island, Saltspring Island is the largest, most populated, and most visited of the Southern Gulf Islands. The setting is West Coast Canadian; forested islands, wide meadows and beautiful landscapes surrounded by emerald ocean and wonderful vistas.

Salt Spring Island has long been known as a very special place in British Columbia so you can look forward to your vacation rental accommodations. The year-round residents of Saltspring Island include an eclectic mix of artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs. Many vacationers come to Saltspring simply to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and soak in the quiet island lifestyle and spirit from the comfort of their condo rental or vacation rental accommodations.

Come and swim, hike, relax or mountain bike with your vacation rentals as your base. Visit artist's galleries, dine on gourmet dinners and sample fine wines or barbeque out on the deck! The island's shoreline is varied and beautiful, offering rocky shores, tidal pools to explore, shell beaches for beachcombing, and a wide variety of sandy beaches. Of the 22 ocean beaches, 4 are designated for swimming.

The island has 225 farms and is known for its sheep-raising. Be sure to tour the rolling pastures on the north end. Saltspring is also known as a centre for arts and crafts, and has an impressive selection of shops, restaurants and tourist accommodations within easy reach of your vacation rentals. While a few of Saltspring's attractions can be seen in a whirlwind two-hour drive, a thorough exploration of Saltspring could take weeks. Allow at least a full day or more...the serene island vacation home rentals offers a tranquil respite for solace-seeking travelers.

Saltspring Island even has its own currency! Saltspring Island Dollars are available on a one-to-one exchange with the Canadian Dollar and accepted on Saltspring on the same basis as the national currency. The goal of the local currency, which was introduced to the Island in September 2001, is to raise funds for worthwhile community projects while promoting local commerce and goodwill.

Tee off on either of the island's two golf courses. The challenging 9-hole Saltspring Island Golf Club on Lower Ganges Road welcomes the public and operates on a first-come-first-served basis. Ten minutes south of Ganges is the Blackburn Meadows Golf Club.

Enjoy your vacation on this beautiful island located midway between Vancouver and Victoria. There are many fine quality vacation rentals and accommodations on Salt Spring Island. Whether you want a quiet weekend getaway for two at your lodging or condo rentals or an all summer vacation for the whole family at a vacation rental, there is something for everyone.
