Enjoyed our time here. The condos include all you would need for your stay, including beach towels, linens and kitchen tools.This was perfect for our family as we were travelling throughout BC and did not have these things with us. The rooms were clean, spacious and perfect for a family. We were on the second floor and had a view...

My friend and I recently spent two nights at #6 Vesuvius villas on salt spring Island. The suites are individually owned and are placed in a rental pool. We couldn't have asked for a better and nicer place to stay. In addition to living room, kitchen and dining area, the suite has two separate ensuite bedrooms. The place was very...

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the suite while staying at the Villas. Being a vacation rental rather than a hotel - each suite offers a unique space that varies based on the owner's comfort and style. Suite # 6 is a larger deluxe suite and does truly reflect that owner's...

Stayed here for 3 nights (unit 9) on the top floor with my partner for a Salt Spring Island getaway. It's fully furnished - feels like you are staying in a friends condo😀. My only negative comment would be that the TV is in the second bedroom and not in the living room - making it pretty much useless. As...

This was my second weekend trip here. These are condos that seem to be set up specifically to be short-term rentals. Ours was a 2/2 on the 3rd floor. Apartment is spacious and well set up. Very comfortable, with a large living room and dining room, functional kitchen, 2 large bedrooms. Nice deck. OK view. No TV if that matters...

We stayed in one of the 2 bed roomed apartments with our 2 small children. The apartment was very spacious, well equipped and beautifully presented. Although not in the centre of the island there is a very nice little local restaurant just a few steps away. Very good value for money would highly recommend.

Clean, we'll managed vacation rental. Accommodation on Saltspring Island can be pricey and Vesuvius Villas offers good value for your money. We stayed in suite #8 which was spacious with a very well equipped kitchen, BBQ and a nice patio with an ocean view. Short stroll to Vesuvius Bay and local coffee shop, restaurant.

We so appreciate hearing from our guests...and that you share your thoughts on what the Villas has to offer. Being a vacation rental - the suites are fully self contained with all of the comforts of home. And as each suite is independently owned and therefore decorated and stocked differenlty - it is great feedback to know what may or...

For our 40th anniversary of friendship, myself and two friends stayed for four nights in Suite 10. It was fabulous having two bedrooms with en suites, fabulous views from the balcony of the bay and deer grazing on the grass below. Fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer...what more could you ask for except and fabulous restaurant a short walk away!

This was our second time staying at the Villas, suite #1.
