Our story

Once, not too long ago, Sault was a humble three-bedroom beach house begging for a facelift and a new lease on life. Now, Sault welcomes guests with open arms.

This coastal retreat features a spacious central living space that opens out onto an expansive deck and private landscaped garden. Artwork, ceramics, plants, books and carefully curated details complement the nature-inspired interior.

From the moment you enter the property, it’s clear your ultimate comfort has been carefully considered. Do you want to curl up in a seat by the woodfire heater and get lost in a great book? Or throw open the bifold doors and nap on the outdoor sofa? Congregate around the firepit with a glass of red in hand and watch embers fly up into the night sky or dive into the curated selection of games and classic record collection.
