“AN OASIS”

This was the perfect spot for our vacation. Our first night began watching dolphins frolicking in the bay as the sun was setting. The second morning we were greeted by dolphins and seals as the sun was rising. The cottage location is a short jaunt to get to Cape Breton Island. The Canso National Park is something that should not be missed. We were very sad to leave at the end of our vacation and cannot wait to return.

“A wonderful place to absorb amazing, natural beauty of the ocean that provides total relaxation!”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved everything about Rick and Nancy's gorgeous Oceanside home with postcard views everywhere,( we saw an eagle just 20 yards from the screened in porch). They equipped the home with everything you could want. It was the best 4 days we spent in some 44 years of marriage.
Thanks and should we visit eastern NS we will be hoping to stay again.

“Loved our stay”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage is everything that was promised and more. The location is stunning, and the cottage lovely. The only problem was that we were busy with commitments in the area and didn't have time to just sit and breath. Next time, this will be the holiday, not just the accommodation.

“Ideal rental”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

After two Nova Scotia trips and 25 nights, this is the best of 7 cottages rented in terms of setting (scenic, quiet, private, right on the water), quality of cottage (open concept, modern, well equipped) and owners care (called to ensure no problems, allowed use of well stocked spices, some dry/canned foods, well maintained (clean)).
