Overview

About the property

An extraordinary guest house overlooking ocean, forests, and mountains.

The Flying Dreams Guest House offers peace and tranquility in a thoroughly magical setting.

The simple elegance of the exterior gives few hints of the interior’s grand vaulted ceilings, soaring Gothic windows, and spectacular view overlooking the Trincomali Channel. The well-appointed, eclectic interior offers 1800 square feet of luxurious living space including entertainment center, library, and dining area. Hardwood floors and Persian carpets add a classical touch. An additional 450 square feet of sleeping loft overlooks the dramatic space and offers sweeping views that extend all the way across the Gulf Islands.

The kitchen is compact yet spacious, equipped with a small fridge, and a two-burner stove built into an elegantly crafted island. Coffee maker, tea kettle and tea pot, toaster oven, and full sets of dishes, cutlery, glassware, kitchen utensils, and pots and pans, round off this delightful easy-to-use kitchen. Teas, locally roasted coffee, sugar, honey, and salt & pepper are provided.

A three-piece bathroom with shower offers bath products supplied by Salt Spring Soap Works. And outside, on the stoned back deck with an eagle’s-eye-view, a café table provides a lovely private setting for morning coffee or an at home meal.

And all just minutes from the beach.

A unique getaway for nature lovers, adventurers, romantics, and artistic spirits seeking inspiration.

A beautiful, spacious location

The space is superlative in every way: it's peaceful, beautiful and quiet; and Max and Victoria are excellent hosts. I couldn't ask for a better experience. Highly recommended.

Extraordinary! Surpassed all our expectations

  • 5 of 5

What a gem. This is by far the best vacation rental we've ever stayed in. It's a magical, spacious clean and modern "house" in the woods. Perfect for a getaway to rest and recharge. Victoria and Max we're lovely, they left fresh flowers and fruits and greeted us when we arrived. Very flexible with our travel arrangements. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back.

A magical home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

One of a kind and a wonderful getaway for two. An amazing place nestled away in nature's best, you instantly forget about your 'city life'. My husband and I absolutely loved our stay here, it was very cozy and serene the entire time and felt like home the moment we stepped in. This was the perfect getaway for us to getaway from it all. We were also pleasantly greeted by Max & Victoria on arrival and they are the sweetest couple. Max, Victoria, thank you for sharing this magical place with us and we hope to come back soon!

Best wishes,

Bonnie Y.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for us to relax. Flying Dreams is smartly laid out - with great acoustics! It is located in a bucolic setting that is peaceful, quiet, and great for viewing wildlife. Max and Victoria greeted us with flowers and fruit and made us feel welcome. They were also thoughtful about our privacy. Highly recommended.
