  • A charming house in a lovely setting

    "My wife and I arrived very late at night and Tony was nice enough to come out to the house to help us get in. Both He and Cheryl are genuinely nice folks. The location was just what we were looking for - about 20 minutes outside of Halifax on a a quiet little cove. The house has a lot of character. The best words to describe the feel are comfortable and homey. The house has been tastefully updated without losing any of the charm. What we loved the most was the view of the sea. It was so nice to sit on the porch and gaze out past the cove. Although this was our first trip to Harbour's Reach it felt like somewhere we had been coming for years. Also, make sure to stop at Pavia just up the road. Excellent coffee, sweets, and breakfast!"

  • beautiful spot, relaxing getaway

    "we stayed at starfish hill for two weeks in June 2014. amazing things about the property: - pet friendly - we brought our two dogs with us and they had a blast in the ocean and running around the property. the cottage is FAR from a main road so we weren't worried about them at all. - very few bugs - i really hate mosquitos and we found that being by the river/ocean really helped with this. there was often a lovely breeze keeping things nice and fresh. - close to "civilization" - being at this cottage you feel away from it all, but bridgewater is a 15 minute drive away for groceries, drug stores, some restaurants. traveling with a small baby, it was great to be so close to amenities if we needed them. - the cottage itself obviously! - the furnishings are beautiful, the view is even better. we loved making fires in the evenings and sitting out on the deck for breakfasts. - the setup - this cottage stocks almost everything you need! lots of towels, clean sheets on the bed, lots of dishes and glasses, full size fridge and great having a washer and dryer. i loved hanging my clothes on the line to dry, everything was so fresh and crisp! - no TV, but great WIFI - i loved not having a tv. we had an iPad and when my husband HAD to watch baseball games, he got a great connection through the wifi and could watch anything on his iPad. - the owners and caretakers - all fabulous! we had a small problem with the deck umbrella and a gentleman came the very next day and fixed it. great communication. - anyone with kids - they have a great setup for kids. there was a pack n play waiting for me, there are fun bunk beds, and they have a ton of great toys in the shed for older kids to play with. we are already talking about our next visit to starfish hill!"

  • 30th Anniversary Celebration!

    "We just got back from spending four nights at the Studio apartment at Singing Pebbles. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary! Coming home to our "cottage" each evening after exploring the Island was delightful. Jitka's suggestions were very helpful. God's creative handiwork and majesty is wonderfully displayed in this part of the world! We would highly recommend Singing Pebbles as a place to stay in the area; being close to many attractions and still a private place with personal attention. And Jitka's pottery is amazing."

  • Great Home

    "Great home/cottage. Lots to see and do. The house is lovely , it is a comfortable home with all the amenities. Nova Scotians are warm and friendly and the scenery is remarkable. The management team and concierge were helpful and assisted us in planning some of our activities, all were fantastic recommendations and fun was had by all. Nova Scotia has a rich history. Worth the trip. Can't wait to go back!"
