average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Great location, cozy, awesome views...!

  • 5 of 5

Private, comfortable, great views, and close to beaches, amenities and attractions. Seal Mara cottage didn't disappoint; we stayed for 2 weeks and didn't want to leave! Great for family, kitchen well equippped, clean, had morning coffee outside everyday watching the sea. Lots to do, Cousins Shore beach about 2 mins by car, Thunder Cove beach under 10 mins. Groceries, liquor store, good restaurants, gas, post office and all things Anne are all about 10-15 mins. Retail outlet for fresh fish was also closeby. Wifi was good, no problems. Would definitely recommend!
