After a very peaceful stay in July, we really look forward to visiting again next May! We had such a lovely time that we almost want to keep your place secret, but that would be selfish. It is impossible not to be relaxed with the fabulous views, wonderful suite, special energy, most of all the hospitalisty of the hosts. Thanks... More

Spent a great 4-day long weekend enjoying Tanis and Paul's hospitality. Both were very friendly, and offered great advice on where to go and what to do. Room was spotless and Paul made sure everything was 100%. Enjoyed the bowl of fresh fruit, the jam and rye bead, and the great scones and muffins for breakfast. The location is so... More

We had an awesome visit! The location is excellent for both kayaking and hiking. Centrally located for island exploration. The best sunset I have ever seen out the front windows and patio of our room. Beautiful wooden touches in the room made it warm and comfortable. The hosts are friendly and helpful. We will be back!

Thank you for the great review! It was so fabulous that you got out kayaking so early every morning, and worked up your appetites for the baking and breakfast! You certainly inspired us with all the activity you got up to, and all the sights you saw on this island! Now that you are familiar with SSI, we hope you... More

Two short stays in late July & early August were a very pleasant time. The suite left nothing to be desired. I have never slept in a more comfortable bed & I was pleased by lovely coordinated bedclothes. The supplies for breakfast were more than adequate and I enjoyed the homemade bread, jam and goodies.A variety of fresh fruit was... More

This was our second trip to Skipping Stone and we have never stayed anywhere better! It is our paradise home away from home. There is nothing more we could ask for in terms of amenities, atmosphere, peacefulness, beauty and hospitality. Tanis and Paul are such kind, thoughtful and genuine people that you cannot help feeling like family. We were so... More

I'll definitely return to Skipping Stone Beach B&B. The Starfish 2-bed suite was lovely, stylish, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. Sitting on the large deck overlooking the ocean flanked by majestic forest as the sun set was sublime. Paul and Tanis were great hosts and I feel I've made new friends. Thank you Tanis for sharing your 'tip' for... More

We stayed in the driftwood suite, smallish but comfortable for two people. It was clean,bright and had all we needed. The breakfast fixings were so good, just wish that the fresh baked treats were provided each day of the stay. Tannis and Paul were friendly and very helpful. We would definitely recommend Skipping Stones

It was great to meet you both! We were impressed with your adventuring about the island even in the one day of heavy rain we have had for months! Thanks for the comment re. the baking - it is actually an 'extra' to the full in-suite breakfast fixings that we provide. Hope to see you again some day! More

Second time staying, hopefully many more to come. Paul and Tanis are fantastic hosts and the B&B couldn't be more peaceful and welcoming. Can't beat the baking! The location is ideal and the view is sublime, making Skipping Stone the perfect spot to create a Salt Spring escape. Thanks!

The Skipping Stone B&B exceeded our expectations. The hosts, Tannis and Paul, are thoughtful and kind, and the morning scones are delicious! We particularly enjoyed the peaceful location and the evening sunshine on the quiet beach. The suite is very clean and the view will make you want to extend your stay. We hope to visit again!
