  • 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!"

  • Seaside Cottage

    "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 !!!"

  • A Welcome Retreat

    "My wife and kids and I moved to Nova Scotia from British Columbia, and chose Shirley's home for a month while we searched for permanent housing in the Halifax area. Her home was always a very refreshing, peaceful and relaxing place to come back to everyday after our housing search. Our lovely host respected our privacy while also showing herself to be interested in us and our kids, and was very welcoming towards our family overall. She was very helpful with providing information regarding various details of the region, and even went out of her way to make some special and unique accommodations for us while we were staying in the suite. We were sorry to leave Shirley's place, and would happily return for another visit. We found Shirley herself to be very gracious and hospitable, and also quite thoughtful about humanity as a whole."

  • Great spot; wonderful home

    "The house is as described..and also immaculate upon arrival; well appointed with all that we needed . Nothing better than sitting on the deck looking at pond and ocean except maybe biking to the LeHave Bakery. Lots to explore..Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, Lehave and three beaches all within walking distance..The owners are immediately responsive and helpful. No complaints!"
