“The cottage was a definite retreat - quiet, secluded, peaceful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2009

Maria is the most excellent hostess, making you feel welcome and at home. The cottage is attached to the main house, and you'd think there might be overflow people traffic and noise, but not so. This is definitely a place of peace and serenity with Maria's beautiful gardens. Everything was immaculate and inviting. I was missing my comfy chair from home in the living area, but that's what happens when you travel. If you're looking for TV, this is not the place to come (3-4 channels), but they provide a wireless connection which I totally appreciated. The back patio gives you a private place outside with a wonderful view of the ocean. I would go back in a flash.

We stayed in the cottage which was perfect for our holiday. Very private and everything provided to make it feel like home. The gardens are gorgeous, the views breathtaking and the wild life abundant. (The deer were lovely to see close up even though they ate Maria's roses!!) Maria and Rolf are wonderful hosts and a mine of information about the island. This is going to become an annual visit for us.

Maria's corner of paradise has all the comforts of home and a view of the ocean to die for. The spacious suite is nicely appointed and meticulously kept.

It is a terrible thing to be so conflicted. Sharing information about this wonderful place might make it more difficult to find accommodation there in the future. I will err on the side of sharing. More specifically you will have to search hard to find a better retreat from the noise and constant motion of today's world than Suncrest Cottage. Suncrest Cottage offers full housekeeping capabilities in what amounts to a pleasantly furnished apartment complete with livingroom, kitchen and bedroom that opens out onto a private little patio with a small rock garden and a pleasant view the water and Galliano Island.

Maria and Rolf Dammel are your hosts and what hosts they are. They intuitively know when to keep their distance to give you your solitude and rest. They are on the other hand wonderful resources with 30 years of Salt Spring experiences and history. Their lovely location is worth the trip alone to see the gardens surrounding their home and Suncrest Cottage.

I would consider ourselves experienced travellers. We have stayed in many similar situations in nearly 40 years. Suncrest Cottage is up there in the top percentile of these. My spouse and I would go out of our way to stay at Maria and Rolf's "Cottage" on any future trip to Salt Spring Island.

Maria and Rolf express gratitude for their good life by making every aspect of it an art form. Their house is immaculate, beautifully situated, and surrounded by flowers, fruits, and vegetables that you admire when you arrive and then dine on the next day. (Breakfast is the peak experience.) They have many interesting stories about the trials of island life that they have triumphed over, and you and your kids will remember them forever.

We stayed in the cottage for an extended period of time, while the home we had just purchased on Salt Spring was being renovated. It was a perfect interim home for us--comfortable, lovely, and in a beautiful location with spectacular ocean views when we stepped oustide. We loved being able to see theocean from our bedroom! Maria and Rolf couldn't have been more perfect hosts. They were warm, generous, knowledgeable, and accessible any time we needed them, but never intrusive. We had some extraordinary circumstances occur while we were there, and they were as hospitable and helpful as if we had been members of their family.
