Beautiful Gem

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for two weeks in October this year. It is one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever taken. The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable to live in. You will be close to fun farmers markets, adorable towns, tons of activities like hiking, kayaking, museums and more. The views from the house are stunning and we especially enjoyed the family of seals swimming in the bay every morning. I highly recommend this place for anyone to enjoy.

Perfect - Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Pat and Pedro's home is a perfect VRBO, we have stayed in many over the yrs and this is amongst the best.

Mill Cove and the surrounding area is lovely for a holiday vacation and is perfect to relax and unwind.

The accomodation is very well equipped and maintained and exceptionally clean and comfortable. Pat and Pedro will help if there is anything you may need.

It's a special place and we will always have fond memories of our stay. Thank you Pat and Pedro

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Whale's Tale cottage has everything you could wish for- gorgeous view, comfortable furniture, and a great kitchen. The morning sunrises are glorious, as well as the sunsets.The owners have thought of all the little extra touches, right down to coffee filters and toilet paper, which I've had to bring for myself in other rentals. There were many helpful supplies in the pantry as well. Communicating with Pat, the owner was very easy and quick. It's all you need or want if you're planning a stay by the sea!

Beautiful cottage, with a view to match!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect. It is spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything that you will need. You will instantly relax as soon as you arrive. The view is to die for, the sunrises are amazing. The location is great, everything is located within a short drive. If you are thinking about renting this cottage I would highly recommend it, you won't regret it. Pat is great to deal with. Thanks Pat for sharing your home. We hope to return.
