"First-time visitors to Nova Scotia, we arrived a la reunion mode, staying at the property in the company of old friends who have Canadian roots and visiting family. Our arrival was in the afternoon, a splendid, serene Sunday, showing off exquisitely the tended gardens, a fish and duck pond, matched by owner's expansive hospitality and a sunset to match our relaxed mood. The wide outside deck, scenic lighting, central fire pit promising the owner's lobster boil if we so chose (we did - it was uniquely delicious, complimented by the host couple's presence, and much local lore). There is much more to tell about our Halifax-area stay, but judging by the full bookings for Summer, 2015, this property's on the map to stay. We recommend you do too!"

"If you're looking for the perfect beach cottage..this is it. The beach is right across from the cottage and the water is warm and shallow..perfect for small kids. Lovely front porch to sit and listen to the surf and have a few drinks. It's close to the Cabot trail and to Mabou where the Rankin family has a lovely restaurant with live music. The owners wife left beach glass books on the table and now I'm hooked. Check out THE BUS..the hamburgers are fabulous. Kick back and unwind or shop in all the small seaside towns. The cottage has everything you need and the owner is so helpful and friendly. I wish this cottage was mine !!!"

"We stayed at the Sunset Piper from 7/11-7/19 and it was truly amazing! The property is breathtaking and the views are stunning on all sides. We had a large family reunion outside on the huge property and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house is very comfortable and accomodating for our large family. The beautiful Melmurby Beach is less than 5 minutes away and lots of free parking and no crowds to deal with. The owners were so easy to deal with and responded to our requests immediately. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and entertainment by the house "Piper" Harold at our family party. He was a huge hit with all the guests! Would definitely recommend this vacation rental as it was truly a week to remember."

"This lovely home was perfect. Great amenities lived up to their advertisements. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and always available to help or answer any questions. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to my family and friends. I'd stay there again! The people in Nova Scotia are super friendly and outgoing - a great visit in a great province."
