"Just home from a lovely week spent at Xanadu. Fantastic views and unbelievable sunsets, and a wonderful base from which to explore nearby Cape George, Arisaig and Antigonish. Terrific fishing, and the kids enjoyed exploring the rocks, and watching for seals and bald eagles from the porch. The cottage itself is gorgeous, with huge windows facing the water and the lovely sea air flowing in from every direction."

Wish we could have spent more time at Stoneybrook House
"A bunch of friends and I stayed at Stoneybrook House while we were in Chester for a wedding. Unfortunately, we only stayed for one night but we definitely could have stayed for much longer. It would be the perfect vacation house for a family or group of friends staying for a week in the South Shore. The stream running behind the house is quite picturesque as is the whole property."

"The Cove house has been perfect for us. The huge windows and the deck overlooking the ocean have been favourite spots. We can't believe the endless stream of traffic going in to the Halifax harbour. Beautiful to watch and photograph. The Wednesday evening sailboat regatta that happened right in front of us was spectacular. We counted 50 sailboats. We found it difficult to leave and go touring and would linger here longer each day and then finally just stayed home one whole day! The kitchen is beautiful and the beds are so comfortable! The owners are lovely and very accommodating! We highly recommend a stay here. It's easy to get downtown and great to come back home to! And being greeted at any time of day by Sigmund is so much fun!"

"When we saw the vrbo photo of the Martinique Beach House, we almost couldn't believe our eyes: a modern glass house on a stunning beach just feet from the Atlantic Ocean. I half-suspected it had been photoshopped, but we couldn't resist, and rented it. (We rented the smaller of Michael's two attached properties: the 2-bedroom house with the Murphy bed.) But when we arrived both the house and beach were BETTER than we'd ever hoped! The house is beautiful, comfortable, and intelligently designed, from the tiny details (outlets in the poured-concrete floor) to its grand concept: the wide, unobstructed, sweeping view of Martinique Beach. As it's situated on an E-W axis, the seaward glass wall frames sunrises and the rear windows frame sunsets. And the beach is magnificent: 3 miles of soft sand, crystal-clear water (just about swim-able even in mid Sept.), and rock-pools with sea urchins, starfish, and (broken!) sand dollars. Michael was helpful and friendly, and we enjoyed meeting him--in fact, we enjoyed everything about his glorious home. Try the chocolate knots at Dobbit Bakery in Musquodoboit Harbor."
