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.

Staying in a cathedral

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit on Saltspring Island and in particular our stay at Flying Dreams. It was truly like staying in a cathedral, with the wonderful morning light, the buttressed ceiling, the amazing sound system. Buddha Bar music in this space is quite an experience! This setting was very rejuvenating and Max and Victoria were lovely hosts.

A unique and beautiful space.

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous space this is! With its 40-foot ceilings, it was perfect for making music (which we did), as well as do some impromptu cardio/yoga sessions in the morning, and it was also perfect for just hanging out and relaxing. Comfy bed, gas BBQ, huge TV, amazing sound system, incredible acoustics, drums and other percussion instruments on hand... The perfect retreat for a pair of creative types on a working holiday.

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.
