Floor to ceiling windows and a large deck complete with garden furniture expands the living space outside. Breathe the sea air and soak in the natural beauty that surrounds the cottage. It is the perfect spot to enjoy the many moods of the Atlantic Ocean.

Ragged Island Retreat has a one week SATURDAY to SATURDAY rental period during the peak season (July and August) and three night minimum rental period during the shoulder seasons.Tucked away at the end of a long driveway and overlooking a secluded inner harbour, the house is completely private with no neighbours. The cottage comes with two single kayaks, a double kayak that guests are welcome to use. (paddles and adult size life jackets included) To use the kayaks, you are asked to sign a liability waiver and to return the kayaks to the cottage at the end of each day so that they do not float away on the tide.
A low tide a sandy beach is revealed across the channel. In order to get to the beach, you would hop in the kayaks and paddle over. There are some other beaches on the Ragged Island Peninsular that are walking distance to the cottage as well as Louis Head beach (15 minutes’ drive) and Crescent Beach (20 minutes’ drive).
