Why I am a proud member!

I have been a member of Salt Spring Island Chamber for many years now, and found it to be a great resource for my business.

Collins House

At Collins House on the sunny west coast, we strive to perfect "the Art of the Getaway". Start with sumptuous comfort, close to nature, add a near ocean and distant mountain view and offer heavenly bedding and private deluxe continental breakfasts without deadlines. Then, look for some less expected things like our private well water so spectacular we carbonate and bottle it for you or deliver it plain and simple from all taps. Curled up in delicious bath robes and plush seating, scan your large, deluxe suite and you'll find built-in USP chargers, dimmers, fridge, iron, 40" TV with Netflix & naturally, high-speed wifi and yes, real flowers.

Basil’s Pizza

Basil's Pizza is Salt Spring's new wood-fired pizza eatery serving delicious thin crust artisan pizza. Our trailer is nestled in a quiet garden space surrounded by flowers, where can watch your pizza being cooked to order and eat it with us or take it home. Using fresh seasonal ingredients and supporting local farmers, Basil's is Salt Spring's newest secret, though word is spreading fast. Find us if you can, on Jackson Avenue next to the Heritage house.

Monsoon Coast Exotic World Spices

I took over as the Monsoon Coast “Spice Girl” in 2008 and have been roasting, grinding and blending spices in my little spice room on Salt Spring Island ever since. We started nearly 20 years ago with six amazing Indian spice blends. Over the years a number of mixtures from Africa and around the world have been added to the line-up. We now offer 20 different masalas that can help transform everyday meals.  On “the rock” we can be found at the world famous Saturday Market and at various shops. Our website has a complete list of stores, some terrific recipes and customers can order online. Visit us at www.monsooncoast.com.
