The Love Shack Guestbook

Thank you for the lovely, peaceful place to come and celebrate, relax and feel peaceful. We love the privacy and the 'fireplace in the bedroom'. R & P

As soon as we walked through the door, we knew we were home. "Romantic" doesn't even begin to describe this place. "Magical" is a lot closer. "Enchanting" would be an even better one. Two nights is too short, though it was two nights we won't forget. What a perfect place to spend our anniversary, to fall in love again and again. Till next time. M & H

No telephones, no TV, no cell phones, no interruptions from the outside world. What a magical place to wake up in and come to each day. I continued to be delighted by all the little treasures hidden around the Love Shack ~ new discoveries every day. All topped off by the evening on the deck watching the day disappear. Heaven! LG, Owen Sound, Ont.

It's our third wedding anniversary and we are in heaven. This is my favourite place. Like our marriage this place just keeps getting better. Spending our wedding night at the Love Shack was the perfect start. It's peaceful and beautiful, but it's also private, simpe, quiet and totally delicious. The details... fresh fruit, flowers, old cameras, candles, coffee, old knobs, driftwood, artwork, mini statue of David, and the bath tub - oh yeah! The Love Shack celebrates all the right things and beats any fancy hotel or spa hands down. Did I mention the view? I love waking up in the middle of the night to the bright moon reflecting of the ocean. The Love Shack Rules. Thank you Peter and Lynda, see you again next year... or sooner. M & E

The charm and beauty hit you at once. A little time later you realize and love every single thoughtful detail. Before long you feel the magic and are changed! Thank you Lynda, Pedro and beautiful Jackson. We will return to the "shack" that is so much more! G & K, Toronto, Ont.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with all of it's creativity and thoughtfulness you added. This has marked the beginning of a tradition for us. M & J

A couple of nights in this Love Shack is a savory way to bring our honeymoon to a close. Creative energy all around: beach, bubbles & burgundy libations, a trip well worth taking. Thanks so much for thinking through all of the sensory details, we drank them all in and enjoyed. Your vision of the Love Shack is one we are glad to have experienced! J & P, Calgary, AB

We couldn't have asked for a more comfy, cozy place to lounge in! A terrific week-end of strolling, sleeping, sipping vino, eating cheese, listening to "groovy" tunes and enjoying ocean views. The one word to describe this place is a "snuggery"... look it up? Thanks for everything. A & M

This was a beautiful sojourn by the sea. All of the "objets d'amore" were like gentle nudges that put a smile on our faces and kisses on our lips. Below deck, a mother merganser floated by on our last morning with 9 lovely chicks. All of the sea life was a treat. Thank you for the most interesting and lovely stay. S & J, Moberly, BC

I came here thinking I knew what love was, but it had cracks in it and far too many unanswered questions, all I was hoping for was an answer for Steve and I... I came away with so much more and understanding true love and also having found my true love. For me, this has been a life-changing four days that was only enhanced by our peaceful surroundings. I learned a lot about myself and most importantly the lovely man by my side. C

When you do know what love is and all the joy it can bring... it is always well worth a valiant fight to keep it... and cherish it forever. S

We have found another favourite place. Timeless! Thanks. C & S

Understated and never disappoints, year after year. N & R

We've had a wonder-filled time. This is a little piece of paradise. The Love Shack lives up to it's name... Best wishes. J & A


Casa Amore Guestbook

Dear Peter & Lynda, We had a wonderful time at Casa Amore. It really made our SaltSpring Island vacation extra-enjoyable. What a great way to relax! We stargazed every night and counted the satellites zipping by. In the morning we awoke to the quiet rhythm of the ferry thumping into Fulford. Beddis Beach was great for a picnic lunch. St. Mary's lake was cool and refreshing. The kayaking was a definite high point of our stay on SaltSpring... now that we've tried it we will keep on paddling. Thank you very much. D & M

Casa Amore. To celebrate MARS this close to earth, here in your precious space. Celebrating the beauty of art, enjoying the natural elements here on SaltSpring... we are very grateful. Many, many thanks for your hospitality. Namaste. M & A

Dear Lynda, Thank you for your hospitality. Your gracious and thoughtful greeting was that of a splendid host. The peaceful and pleasant surroundings provided such a haven for rejuvenation. Thank you from us all. SC

What an incredible lovely way to spend the week-end! We absolutely loved the sereneness of this cute cottage and taking time away from everyday life. We look forward to when we can return again. BA & G

Hi Peter & Lynda, This time here was so wonderful, as if it were specially ordered just for us. This felt like where we lived years ago before children and we just had fun all the time. A very magical visit with lots of little surprises, thanks for having this to share with us. J & C

Casa Amore is fabulous. My bed up in the loft was so comfortable. It's beautiful here, just lovely. I would love to live in this place all the time. I have had a fabulous time on SaltSpring and I thank you very much for the wonderful place to stay. T'was lovely, thanks. C

We're having a wonderful moment in time in this lovely sun-filled cottage. The beds and the chairs are all comfortable; the front porch is relaxing; the bird song lulling; the sea breeze is caressing. My daughter and I have found comfort here. With thanks. S

We had a wonderful time at lovely Casa Amore cottage. We felt very at home here and had fabulously relaxing time. We loved the cozy atmosphere with the woodstove, candles, lamps, and the wonderful windows, especially the bathroom window. We also enjoyed going back in time with the record player and records. Thanks for sharing this space with us. Cheers! J & K

Wherever I go, this place, this island, goes with me in my heart. The hustle and bustle of city life and financial responsibilities soon take over, but in my dreams, I evoke this island feeling and it carries me through until the next time that I can come back to the Love Shack or Casa Amore, and the treasures that await us here: the deer, the otters, the birdsong, the stillness and the salty ocean air. Pure distilled joy. SM


The Moon & Six Pence Guestbook

What a wonderful experience staying at the Moon and Six Pence. You've paid attention to every detail! I didn't finish the Maugham novel, but now must get a copy to see how he works it! You live in Paradise... we come away refreshed. B & S

Goodness abounds at Moon & Six Pence. B & J (by bike)

Captive heart struggling to find a calm moment
in the rustling excitement of new love
This is what dreams look like
This is my nakedness
Finding the comfort of your gaze
Caressing the rim of my gentle openness
This is intimacy uninterrupted
A steady flow of adoration
Traveling from your heart to mine
This is me saying
I love you.
~ from S. to C.

Thank you so much. What a wonderful week-end filled with friends, hugs, guiet, giggles and wonderful nights of peaceful sleep. Watching your family grow is truly a blessing. Being welcomed in is even more. Tea leaves, pomegranates, apple cider, new projects and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Moon and Sixpence is truly amazing. C

Thanks for a lovely, quiet week-end away from clocks, telephones, computers and tv. Although our scores were horrendous, we enjoyed the opportunity to play on a "new" disc golf course. Hope to be here again some day. E & S

How do I put into words the enchantment, the soulfulness, the joy of walking in the Moon and Six Pence for the first time? Sadly, my romantic getaway with my husband turned into a weekend-for-one. Delight of all delights to find a beautiful, creative, nurturing space just for me. While I planned to spend more time meandering across the island (does anyone really meander anymore?) my time here has turned instead into a stay-in-and-embrace-the-creative-inspiration. Thank you so much Peter and Lynda for creating the container in which I've enjoyed so very much a resurgence of intuitive creativity and meditative, sacred space. Beautiful! As these words spiral inward, so has my experience of restful relaxation. I appreciate that we've met at this juncture of our lives, and I'm completely enamored with the Moon and Sixpence! R
