Family home offering huge deck, unbelievable island views, close to Gange
About Virginia Midgett
I moved to Salt Spring Island in 2000 with my 2 children Michael and Jacqueline. The Island was a good fit for us and we purchased our family home. I am a goldsmith by trade and the large population of artist, galleries, creative people, the Saturday Market and island life where all part of the attraction. I love my island home.
Virginia Midgett purchased this House in 2002
Why Virginia Midgett chose Salt Spring Island
I fell in love with this house It's only minutes away from town. It's perfect layout with 2 spacious living spaces, and of course the huge luxurious outside deck with fantastic views.

Fantastic view and comfort
We loved the view, the large and clean deck, the loungers on the deck were so comfy!! Also loved the bright main bath room with the double doors. The rest of the interior was full of comforts like throws on the sofas. We enjoyed breakfast at the BBQ patio, and the view of Virginia's pretty garden. Only downside for us was the beds were too soft. The location is so near town, which was a great convenience.
even better in person!
House is very comfortable with excellent beds and bedding.Kitchen is really well equipped and set up for serious cooks. View is fabulous and the location is very quiet.
Thanks for a great stay!
Relaxing Salt Spring Island getaway
This is a beautiful, well-appointed and very spacious home that provides a comfortable base for exploring Salt Spring Island, or just relaxing on the very large deck (which has a magnificent view of Ganges Harbour and the surrounding islands. Virginia, our hostess, couldn't have been more pleasant to deal with. We enjoyed our week there very much.
(There were only two things that were slightly short of perfection: (1) I thought the mattresses could have been a bit firmer and thicker, although I recognize that's a matter of taste and they were fine for my wife; and (2) although they area is generally very quiet, it's not a totally secluded country property, so you may occasionally be aware of other houses/people in the area, and the occasional car passing in front of the house. Those are relatively minor issues, however, and would not stop us from going back.)
First of all Virginia is so nice, accommodating and helpful. We enjoyed her ! This is one of the most beautiful houses that we have rented over our many years of traveling ! Kitchen fully equipped, great market nearby and we cooked most meals in. The view from the deck is outstanding and we did see bald eagles. Also saw gorgeous sunrises. We would stay here again.
Best place on island for family!
Lovely relaxing retreat
Lovely stay! Super clean premises. Due to water / septic system, the beautiful jet tub was not available, which was unfortunate but understandable. View cannot be missed!
Thank you for your review.
So glad you enjoyed your stay.
Unfortunately having a bath in a huge jacuzzi tub in the summer time on SaltSpring is off limits on most of the island.
That’s the sacrifice we have to pay for living in a beautiful place and having good clean fresh water .
Summer months be careful with water so it will last for everyone!
Sea Spectrum is located halfway up Mount Belcher, only 2 minutes drive from the town of Ganges. It is on a .75 acre private corner lot on a quiet cul de sac with 9 houses.
