Description

The space

This cosy hand-crafted cabin was created using eco-friendly materials and fine wood-working techniques. It is an ideal getaway location for a couple looking for a quiet retreat. We designed the cabin to make efficient use of space, and built it using salvaged wood. It features a large covered porch for relaxing in any type of weather, complete with a porch swing and a cosy hammock. Enjoy the forest and the birds, as the cabin is surrounded by ferns, trees and other greenery. In our opinion, Hummingbird Hollows is the perfect location for a peaceful holiday.

The cabin is ideal for a couple, however, as the living room furniture converts to two twin beds, it can also comfortably accommodate up to 2 children. Upstairs, you will find a very comfortable queen sized bed, and a bathroom with a soaker tub. Downstairs is the kitchen, dining area and living room.

The cabin is heated using radiant floor heat, so the floor is warm and cosy on the colder winter days!

The indoor bathroom includes a composting toilet, sink and tub, and there is a private outdoor shower. The kitchen includes a refrigerator, stove top, microwave oven and toaster oven, and a barbecue is located outside on the private covered porch.

No wifi, but wired internet is available for devices that can be connected to a blue LAN cable (laptop computers, but not tablets or cell phones). To help you pass the time, board games and books are provided.

Guest access

Guests can roam the property, and help themselves to fresh greens from the garden, as well as other seasonal garden produce. An herb garden is nearby with plenty of lavender, mint and lemon balm for making tea.

Interaction with guests

We like to personally welcome our guests whenever possible, so please let us know when you plan to arrive. Our house is about 80 feet from the cabin, and we are usually around to answer questions during your stay. We are always available by phone if you need us. Feel free to call or text, or come by for a chat if you like. An info card with our home and cell phone numbers is located inside the cabin.

The neighbourhood

Our cabin is 7 minutes north-west of the town of Ganges, if you are travelling by car. It is located a 5 minute walk from a short forest trail that leads to a rocky beach, and there is a lovely 2 km walking loop, as well as a network of beautiful hiking trails. A sandy beach suitable for swimming, paddle boarding, and sunset viewing is a 2 minute drive away.

This is a family neighbourhood, so expect to hear children playing outside.

Please note that the cabin is located a 7 minute drive from the town of Ganges, Salt Spring Island's business centre. Ganges has 2 grocery stores, 2 liquor stores, a variety of wonderful restaurants and shops, and the very popular Saturday market, which typically runs from Easter to Thanksgiving. The cosy Vesuvius Store, which is open during the summer months, is a 10 minute walk from the cabin. You can purchase milk, coffee and baked goods here, however, please note that it is not a full-service grocery store. The Seaside Restaurant is also located in Vesuvius, and it's a lovely spot for a meal while you watch the ferry come and go!

Getting around

Parking is available onsite, and the public transit bus stops at the top of the driveway. The Salt Spring Island Transit bus schedule may be found here:

Other things to note

NO WIFI, however, wired internet is available. The internet is serviced by an ethernet cable and will work with devices that can be plugged in (i.e a laptop computer).

The cabin is outfitted with a television, dvd player and dozens of movies, however, it is not serviced by cable TV.

The comfy queen bed is upstairs. The main-floor living room couch converts to 2 twin-sized beds suitable for children. If required, one can be placed on the heated floor at bedtime.

This space is not ideal for very young children, as there is no way to safely barricade the stairs.

Our sweet older cats and friendly border-collie have free access to the property and may occasionally visit you on the porch of the cabin or if you are wandering in the garden. Roscoe the wonder-dog, is very gentle, and he may bark to greet you when you arrive. If you're outside and interested, you may be able to persuade him to play a game of fetch. If you're very lucky, he may grace you with one of his very famous Border Collie smiles :)
