  • 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!"

  • A Magical House in a Gorgeous Setting

    "The photos do not do this house justice. It is wonderfully designed to be practical, comfortable, and yet architecturally stunning. No matter where you sit or stand or whether you look up or down the house itself has beautiful lines and and fascinating colors. The use of color and the various woods and stonework used throughout is beautifully done and will send your spirits soaring. Bill is not only an engineer, but an artist. And that's just the house itself. Wait until you experience the views, the serenity, and your escape from the trials and tribulations of every day life. but if you must, there's internet and Halifax is only about 30 minutes away. But be sure to go the other way and experience the beauty of the lighthouse route including Peggy's Cove, Indian Harbour (be sure to stop at Rhubarb for some seafood chowder or mussels), St. Margaret's bay and on to Mahone Bay and Lunesburg. And enjoy your day but come back to this magical house for sunset on the deck. We ate dinner there every night as well and it appears Bill is also a chef as he has a great kitchen with every implement and spice you can think of. And others have mentioned it but we will too...Bill is a great guy period and so wonderful to work with. Go...it's perfect!"

  • Sun Rise & Big Sky Viewing Extraordinaire

    "This is an incredible location overlooking the entrance to Pictou Harbor & the Northumberland Straits. Its private & quite with only the sound of surf & breeze. The house is well equiped, very tidy & comfortable. Sun rise & big sky viewing are spectacular. The Owners are exceptionally hospitable and a pleasure."

  • Exceptional Holiday on St Margaret's Bay

    "We were totally thrilled with the property we rented for our vacation. Our hosts went above and beyond our expectations! Thank you sooooo much Carlo & Becky. The location was perfect. It was central to all the places we wanted to visit and we definately recommend this cottage. If you are looking for the perfect location, look no farther, you have found it."
