    Absolutely loved this place. Loved the location and the atmosphere. Was quiet and the ocean right outside the front door. Would 100% come back. Though I came during a good time where the house wasn't full so that quiet comment might not always be applicable

    The view was amazing from the front windows. It was nice and quiet, since we went off season. The place was clean and friendly. Michelle called me to check up and give some suggestions on where to go during our visit. Would love to revisit when the weather is warmer to experience the beach in a different way.

    This review covers both the beach house location and the city location. They were quite different. The beach house was great view of the bay, but cluttered since it is not finished. loved it and location. The city house was dirty and the owner was not too friendly toward me, maybe tired...end of season and etc. Not too secure a feeling with outsiders sometimes hanging around??? Parking is a problem there. But for the money its worth it. And she makes some great food in the cafe there.

    This is a lovely house that’s now being used as a hostel with a range of different sleeping options. Location is good with access to beaches near by.15 min drive to a good supermarket so bring supplies. The only downside is I arrived & was in the house by myself and felt fairly vulnerable in a remote place, empty house and solo woman. This was rectified when another person turned up later that night but if no one else was staying, I’d have booked elsewhere the next day, otherwise was great!

    The location is a bitfar from Halifax but on the plus it was right across from the ocean. The host is welcoming and gives info on the area. Free laundry. The place is having work done (water stopped momentarily and when it came back on it was yellow.) There is a fair bit of creepy crawlers of various varieties.
