"We stayed here while some work was being done on our house. The house is near downtown and right around the corner from the Propeller Brewery which is convenient! The house is an older home but has a lot of charm with old floors, high ceilings, and moldings which was cool especially if you live in a more modern place. The house is across the street from the huge skating Oval for winter use (with free skates), and the Halifax Common, although not very green in the winter. Even though it was winter we used the BBQ in the backyard a lot... it would be amazing in summer as it is sheltered and private. We used only two bedrooms but all were well equipped. I saw a note about beds... the beds were fine and it appears that the one my wife and I used appeared brand new (plastic on box spring). The washer and dryer worked great and there is a great ice cream/burrito/coffee spot call DeeDee's around the corner. We had friends drop in a fair bit and this place is great for entertaining by itself and because it's right by all the restos/bars/events downtown. We parked mainly on the street and used the owners driveway next door and had no problem at all. The owners were available on phone/text all the time and helped with any questions or anything we needed. Overall, a great time, and while we were glad to get home, I would recommend to anyone, especially groups and those in town for weddings/events."

"The "Willow Cottage" was the best house for us with three families bonding together for a great weekend in Cape Breton. We were able to eat and play together. The accommodations within the house was perfect for our particular needs. In addition, we want to rent again next year for the reasonable off season rate.
Also, family members have given the idea to their friends for when they go to hunt and fish on the Island."

"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."

"This old fisherman's home was the ideal setting for our trip to Nova Scotia. The four of us stayed six nights and wished we could have stayed two weeks. The home was Great and met all our expectations with no regrets. We visited Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Fort Anne. Our best afternoon was spent along the seashore between the home and Peggy's Cove. Awesome views. Would highly recommend the home and area for a great visit to the Nova Scotia. Tom and Donna, across the street were a wealth of information and made us Cajuns feel right at home. Hope to visit again in the future."
