Real guests • Real stays • Real opinions
This property is unique and different from other properties in that it has themed rooms (Garden, Jungle & Marine), extensive gardens that many say make it the "Mini-Butchart of Salt Spring", offers a great water view of Ganges Harbour, and is walking distance (5-min) to Ganges Village. It is not only frequented by garden lovers, but also birders too, because there are over 15 types of birds that feed or nest on the property, including bald eagles, northern flickers and wild ducks.
The owner is a third generation Salt Spring Islander so he has extensive knowledge of the island's history and is very familiar with the various activities, studios, restaurants and tours. Educated at Stanford and Yale universities, he has a background in venture capital, corporate finance, international sports and event management, and most recently has been coaching professional tennis players on the ATP and WTA Tours.
Alders Avenue is a small (12 properties) cul-de-sac right near Ganges with terrific views of Ganges Harbour. Two of the four surrounding properties are vacant, treed lots so there is plenty of quiet and privacy at the Plantation. Alders Plantation is most popular because of its proximity to town - on weekends and for the Saturday Market, instead of fighting for parking spots in town, guests take a 5-minute path to town through the woods and near an active bald eagle nest.
