Why Wendy Tamko chose Hubbards

It was love at first sight when I came to view this property. I knew I had found my dream come true place in Nova Scotia. The chance to live by the ocean was what I had dreamed about. I love the fresh ocean air, and in all my years of living here, I have never tired of waking up to the beautiful view, the sound of the seagulls, and watching the lobster boats coming and going from the wharf near me.

A cosy beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fish 'N Shells! Everything we needed was provided, and Wendy was a wonderful host. She respected our privacy, but was always available to answer questions and give suggestions of places to go. The beach was right across the road, and the cottage was a central location for many points of interest. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time at Fish 'N Shells, and would stay there again!
