This cottage is a delightful retreat with lovely ocean views and a private patio to relax on and bbq. yet not very far from the town of Ganges. Rolf and Maria are friendly hosts and have a wealth of information to share about Salt Spring Island. After a drive up the hill and down a country driveway I was welcomed... More

We enjoyed having you stay at Suncrest. We just bottled wine made from the grapes and wish we could share some fig jam with you. Since it is like Spring outside I am gardening, adding yet more plants to the garden. Today I shall plant peas. The eagles have returned to the nest we monitor, so eagle watch is added... More

We, a '70s couple, just spent six delightful days at Suncrest. Maria and Rolf gave a complete environment for relaxing and enjoying SSI, but not too much. Our privacy was respected; but they were there when and if we needed them. We have rented several vacation homes, etc., and this one was easiest to occupy, with all the makin's for... More

A peaceful rural retreat not far from Ganges with an ocean view from its gardens. The unit is large with a full-sized kitchen equipped with everything you need for meal preparation and picnics. Comfortable living/dining area. The best view of the ocean is from your bed! Maria and Rolf are generous, knowledgeable and kind hosts. For birdwatchers, the gardens, feeders... More

Thank you for reviewing Suncrest Cottage B&B. It was fun to share bird watching with you and I was glad you could add the band-tailed pigeon to your list. Lately I've heard the barred owls in our forest at night. The little birds have been picnicking on our grapes. Happy Birding. More

Went over to Saltspring Island for the first time for our anniversary. Was pleasantly surprised with the island. Very quiet and serene, very enjoyable. Our stay at the cottage was ideal. Had our own living area complete with living room, kitchen and bedroom. Plus our very own patio which we took advantage of by watching the sunrise over Galiano Island.... More

A very cozy get away with all the amenities. A last minute hiccup in our plans left us with my parents staying with us as well. We all were able to fit in the one place with the fold out couch, our toddler in the bedroom with us and ourselves all very comfortably. The use of a BBQ was great... More

Thank you for the lovely review. Rolf and I enjoyed sharing the delights of Suncrest with your family. I had fun meeting little Makayla. The figs were lovely this year- I made jam, canned and dried them so they can be enjoyed off season; now the huge blackberry crop needs to be preserved. More

Getting off the ferry, we were not sure what to expect coming up a brambly, sketchy looking dirt road but then suddenly opened up to a clear driveway and neat looking garden lined with apple and pear trees. The place itself was lovely cozy and clean. Maria and Rolf were extremely friendly and welcoming, as we found most of the... More

For our return visit to Salt Spring Island, we were welcomed by Maria and Rolf to Suncrest Cottage. We were familiar with Suncrest from previous visits and cannot say enough good about the friendliness and attention we received at Suncrest. The view is amazing and Maria's gardens are so beautiful. The deer wandered down the drive while we were sitting... More

Suncrest is a most delightful cottage tucked away at the end of a cul de sac on Salt Spring Island. If you're seeking peace, tranquility and a little magic, this is the place to choose. It offers beautiful grounds, stunning views and every comfort you could wish for. An up-to-date catalogue, with maps, is also available showing the amazing array... More

Patty, thank you for the lovely review. It was so wonderful to welcome the two of you back to Suncrest Cottage B&B. The blossoms of the red crocosmia growing in the patio garden are a magnet for humming birds- wish you were here to enjoy it. Hope you are having a lovely winter in South africa. More

We had never been to Salt Spring Island before and after staying at the Suncrest Cottage we can't wait to return!

Suncrest cottage is just lovely! Beautiful grounds, great views, tidy little cottage that is scrupulously clean, and wonderful hosts. The drive into Ganges is about 5 minutes, so quite convenient. I did not understand at first that there are really almost no waterfront properties. Unlike areas like Tofino, this is mostly rock coast, no beaches. So, coast views are what... More
