Great communication and assistance from property manager. Cottage provided what we needed for our stay, we really only needed a place to sleep and get ready for the day, and this property provided that well.
Get what you pay for
We were in a crunch to find a place in the area and not much was available so we took it. the residence does not have a a lot to offer in the way of additional provisions such as a coffee pot or towels that are not watered. when going to the beach all we could find was 3 plastic chairs but I guess we should have pack those for our cross country flight. We appreciate a place to put out head but that is about all it offers.
Be aware of what you are purchasing
We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We aim to provide guests with a positive experience in clean surroundings. The cottage has plenty of new towels which guests may take to the beach. We were not aware that the coffee pot was missing, so we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Cottages in the region do not normally provide beach chairs, but it is a great idea to add this for our guests.
less than adequate, very overpriced
We stayed here on the first night of our vacation and we were very disappointed with this rental .
The house was clean and generally well equipped, but was not very spacious. It is quite close to the highway and we had more road noise than we expected. This house is not in good repair:
- There are 3 outside stairways, at least 2 are not level, and the railing on the main stairway into the house is very loose and not safe.
- We enjoyed the outside fireplace, but it is broken and leaning to one side, there was no kindling, and no paper to get a fire started. We found some gasoline to help us get a fire started…
- 2 of 3 lamps in the main bedroom did not work properly or at all.
- Wall clock not working.
- Bell HDMI box in bedroom marked "Broken". (Did not turn on TV so cannot report on how they work, but the 2 TVs are older, smaller, and not digital.)
- Very low shower pressure.
- Internet and phone stopped working; pushed reset button on router without success. Phine eventually came back, but not the internet. We left.
We paid too much for this rental and it WAS NOT WORTH IT. We do NOT recommend it in its current condition and its current price. We are now in another HomeAway house rental on Cape Breton and it is 1000 times better for less than $10 more per night.
We appreciate the time that you took to leave a review. We wish that you had contacted us during your stay regarding your concerns as many of your concerns were easily addressed. The lamps just needed to be plugged in to work, the clock needed a new battery, and we checked with the wifi provider to ensure that the signal was strong. The Hdmi boxes are both working fine.
We were sorry to hear that you found the rate to be too high. We offer rates equal or lower to the rates offered at nearby one room motels.
The cottage is professionally cleaned, so we were happy to hear that you found it to be clean.
We have repaired the fire pit. We were unaware that it was missing a leg.
Thank you once again for bringing to our attention your concerns, so that we can improve our offering.
Nice and simple
-This is an older place that is simple, but most importantly clean. The kitchen was fully stocked, with two bedrooms (3beds).
-Its not secluded and and they were in the process of clearing some trees out to neaten the property.
-It is not on the water, but there is a beach about 5 minutes away.
-Unfortunately it rained a lot while we were there, but the house was warm and snug.
-The water pressure was a bit low in the shower, but did the job.
-The well water tasted excellent and had not scents or tastes at all.
-If you are looking for a simple and clean home base, so you can day trip to the numerous beautiful sights, this fits the bill nicely. It you are wanting a nice romantic place to just stay, consider another spot.
A relaxing stay in a great cottage!
My wife and I and our 3 children had a lovely stay at this cottage! It was equipped with everything that we needed and more. It was great to have a dishwasher and a washer and dryer. It has a large yard where the kids enjoyed sledding down the snowy hill behind the cottage. We highly recommend this place. It is just outside of the town of Antigonish.
