  • 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!"

  • peaceful retreat

    "My daughter and I stayed here for a week in August. It was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the river and cool breeze. The owner was on call and very helpful. The place was well equipped and very clean. I would recommend this place to anyone. We will definitely be back and hope to be lucky enough to rent again."

  • Great base for visiting Halifax and Nova Scotia

    "We stayed for 10 days in order to both move our daughter into university and visit Nova Scotia for the first time. The condo looks exactly like the photos. After an initial rocky start because there was a problem with a breaker and some lights and the wireless were not working for 2 days (teenagers were in initial hysterics), we really enjoyed our stay. The owner was super responsive when contacted and so was the super of the building (helped with the electricity problem). The condo was a great space for our family of 4. The neighborhood is very cute and there are banks, pharmacies and restaurants within a block. The building is quiet (some traffic noise during rush hours). The Halifax ferry is right across the street. There is a great view from the balcony of the Harbour, particularly at night the lights and bridge are beautiful. Having a indoor parking space was wonderful because our car was always full of items purchased for moving into university residence. Dalhousie was only 15 minutes by car. The best shopping is in Dartmouth (MicMac mall and Dartmouth Crossing). The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. The washer and dryer work well and there is a dishwasher. The only negatives were that the building is a bit dated, the bed in the second bedroom is very hard, the exercise room is small and humid and the building tenants are of an older age category and thus my teenagers felt a bit of of place. Overall a good space and location for visiting all that Nova Scotia has to offer."

  • 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."
