I agree with the other reviews in terms of the stunning views, accessibility to Ganges, and awesomeness of this house. Will focus on the stand-out points. - Greg was super-friendly, accommodating and thoughtful in helping plan this trip. - We travelled with a toddler and two babies - there was a high chair provided as well as a full size...

A wonderful place to sojourn on Salt Spring. It was easily accessible, close to town yet remote and nestled in nature. A well equipped kitchen made our big meals easy to organize. The living room was cozy, with the fireplace and phonograph playing oldies. There was plenty of outside space to have different activities going on as well. Truly a...

Management response:

Great your colleagues and their families had a fun retreat together. I'm so glad your group enjoyed the spaciousness of the house and that you weathered the stormy weekend with the fireplace, old phonograph records and spent time together at the table in the large kitchen....all things we did when it was our family home growing up. Come again.

Allison House not only has stunning views, but is well-furnished and extremely generously provisioned in the kitchen. We were a party of 8 and all of us enjoyed the accommodations, the outdoors areas, the cleanliness of the home and its ambience. The house has obviously brought pleasure and enjoyment to its owners and visitors. My dealings with the owner were...

Perched on a hillside with views overlooking the Ganges Harbour, this extremely private, spacious and cozy executive 4 bdrm home has recently been re-modeled featuring new luxury beds and linens.

It contains all the modern conveniences and has plenty of space for relaxing and a kitchen that gets rave reviews from all our "foodie" guests. Lots of outdoor lounge space with two patios to allow you to stay out of the hot sun. A carport and driveway allows parking for four cars. A quiet, secluded home - you can barely see the neighbours.
