Guests can have complete privacy if they like, to write and relax, or can visit our letterpress studio and Porch Gallery and info about the island is available as requested.


We also have a letterpress studio and The Porch Gallery on our property. The Porch Gallery features Peter's linocuts and letterpress work and Mona's book art editions of Canadian poetry as well as MOTHER TONGUE'S literary and art trade books, art cards (and some used books). It also features George Fertig's amazing paintings and drawings. (See The Life and Art of George Fertig by Mona Fertig, the 3rd book in the acclaimed Unheralded Artists of BC series). You are welcome to visit both studios by appointment. Salt Spring Island, B.C., has many hiking trails, parks, beaches, galleries, restaurants, a famous Saturday market, an art centre, a great public transit system and a cornucopia of lively events. It is a wonderful place to escape to any time of year. We are a proudly unincorporated Gulf island ( part of the federation of Gulf Islands) governed by the Islands Trusts' Preserve & Protect mandate.



We expect our guests to be quiet and to enjoy their stay. Privacy is respected. No pets allowed. Adults only. No smoking on property. We have one dog and two cats.

Thoughtfully equipped, with everything as described in the listing.

It's a sweet spot the cabin is in the back, surrounded by greenery, so that was very nice I didn't mind the outhouse, but would have preferred a regular toilet. The host Peter is very helpful, but I took off one star because the Wi-Fi did not work, he tried fixing it but it was still not connecting my whole trip.

We fixed the Wifi and tested it with our own iphones and laptop, a couple of hours after Steven arrived. All recieved signal well. Steven knew there was an outhouse, as is mentioned on the profile of the cabin. If a person needs an indoor toilet, they should seek that convenience. Nobody else has mentioned a problem with the outhouse. The cottage is vacuumed very well between guests and if a bug is seen here or there, it probably is due to guests leaving the front door open all day. Steven did not communicate with us after I'd asked how things were. He was a very private person and could have mentioned any concerns at the time, but didn't. We're here to help if asked.

Beautiful island, beautiful home. Peter and Mona have created a lovely and relaxing environment for themselves and their guests. The cabin was cozy and comfortable, had everything one would need for a island getaway. The kitchenette was small but well stocked and supplied. The trail behind the cabin to town was great- we loved not having to drive to Ganges. They also had really excellent recommendations for what to do and check out on Salt Spring.

Getting to know hosts Peter and Mona was a pleasure and the type of experience Airbnb makes possible. Their cottage was clean and comfortable. Relaxed and close to downtown Ganges.

Hi Doug and Joan, good luck with the Music and Bridges, Cheers, Peter

Wonderful visit. Seaview retreat is beautiful hand-built cabin tucked away in the woods but convenient to "downtown" Ganges. We enjoyed getting to know Peter a little bit and ended up touring his letter press studio and talking some about his work. Peter and Mona have published a fascinating series on under-appreciated artists of British Columbia, and thoughtfully provided copies for the cabin. We felt immersed in and welcomed by the culture of Salt Spring.

We had a really lovely stay at Peter and Mona's. It is a great cabin in the woods yet still only a 10 min walk to Ganges, the local town. Peter was very friendly in settling us in and telling us what about things on the Island. There were great reading materials in the cabin and Peter has even written a book about his own life growing up in Liverpool, which was fascinating. The bed was really comfortable and the shower was great. We'd happily stay there again should we find ourselves on Salt Spring.

It's always great to have really nice and interesting visitors. Pity they were very busy for their stay, as I would have enjoyed an interesting conversation before they left, but time didn't allow. Great couple to have visit.

It is a small cabin with an amazingly clean outhouse. It is perfect for people who enjoy the simplicity of nature and housing, but still provides everything you might need. Living in the cabin feels very peaceful and calming. The cabin is in the middle of trees and nature - perfect to connect with nature and it fits in with the vibe of the whole Salt Spring Island - but there might be spiders. All in all, a wonderful place to stay at!
