We stayed in one of the 2 bed roomed apartments with our 2 small children. The apartment was very spacious, well equipped and beautifully presented. Although not in the centre of the island there is a very nice little local restaurant just a few steps away. Very good value for money would highly recommend.

Clean, we'll managed vacation rental. Accommodation on Saltspring Island can be pricey and Vesuvius Villas offers good value for your money. We stayed in suite #8 which was spacious with a very well equipped kitchen, BBQ and a nice patio with an ocean view. Short stroll to Vesuvius Bay and local coffee shop, restaurant. There is some noise from the... More

We so appreciate hearing from our guests...and that you share your thoughts on what the Villas has to offer. Being a vacation rental - the suites are fully self contained with all of the comforts of home. And as each suite is independently owned and therefore decorated and stocked differenlty - it is great feedback to know what may or... More

For our 40th anniversary of friendship, myself and two friends stayed for four nights in Suite 10. It was fabulous having two bedrooms with en suites, fabulous views from the balcony of the bay and deer grazing on the grass below. Fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer...what more could you ask for except and fabulous restaurant a short walk away!

This was our second time staying at the Villas, suite #1. It's so comfortable, clean and beautiful, with everything we need (especially the fully equipped kitchen - it has more utensils than I have at home!). Love the fireplace. And I'm in love with the location - Vesuvius is a little gem of a village, with the cutest little cafe... More

Our weekend at Vesuvius Villas was perfect - having spent much time all over the rest of Salt Spring Island, I was surprised to find this beautiful little oasis tucked away but still less than 10 minutes from Ganges and the incredible Saturday market. We loved our evening walks down what felt like country roads from another era. The suite... More

If you are ever in Saltspring and need more than a day to enjoy the beautiful laid back island, be sure to book a night or two at the Vesuvius Villa! I would highly recommend suite number 10! It is situated in the middle of the condos with an outdoor deck over looking the beautiful view! You will not be... More

We were impressed by the decor and cleanliness of the condo but when we went to turn on the fireplace (since it cooled down at night), we discovered it didn't work. When we asked the property manager, she just said "Sorry" and "It's a common problem among all the fireplaces in the villas". If this is the case, then why... More

What a beautiful property, nice location close to the beach and dining. Our time there was enjoyed and we didn't want it to end! A definate vacation spot for families with children, having a washer and dryer in our unit was a huge bonus, we can't wait to get back...a HUGE thanx to Lenelle for making our trip so fabulous!
