  • Just what we needed!

    "My adult daughter, who lives in Tennessee, and I spent seven days at the Ocean View Cottage, hosted by Carlo Weickert. Prior to our arrival Carlo furnished a large amount of info re the area, dining establishments, travel routes affording the best views, etc. So, we were somewhat ready, we thought. But once we arrived and Carlo took a lot of his time to 'brief' us on the various options, we realized that we knew only a little of what Nova Scotia offered during day trips from St. Margaret's. Each day we followed a different route and each day, other than two days dining at Lefty's, we enjoyed the cuisine offered by different restaurants recommended by Carlo...on the matter of views and natural beauty, Carlo proved correct; on the matter of dining, Carlo was even more to be complimented!! The Cottage itself was perfect for our needs and large enough that it would easily have accommodated two couples, with or without children. I marveled at the cleanliness and layout of the Cottage, as well as the fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. Quite easily the Cottage could readily serve as a full-time residence as is, it was so complete and so spacious! Thank you Carlo for sharing your Cottage and all the grounds, including your private dock with the 47' Bayliner (no, Carlo might have drawn the line on his generous hospitality had we wanted to take the boat out on our own!). I'd recommend that anyone looking to spend some time in Nova Scotia, and to do so with beautiful housing and great hospitality, all at a very reasonable price, contact Carlo and line up Oceanview Cottage!!!"

  • Lucky to have discovered this place!

    "We held our annual family reunion at this amazing property for a week. There was plenty of room for all of us (five couples plus two young children), including two completely outfitted kitchens and living rooms. We swam, fished, rented kayaks, relaxed and played games right on the property. We even watched a TV pilot being filmed a short distance away, so we weren’t the only ones to find the scenery stunning. The location of the property was excellent, with something for everybody. Beautiful beaches were a short drive away, although the prize-winner was clearly Crescent Beach in Lockeport, about a two hour drive away. It is huge, incredibly clean, almost unpopulated, and had really great wave action to entertain both the adults and children. It is featured on the old Canadian fifty-dollar bill, and makes for a wonderful day trip. We were happy with the grocery stores located in Hubbards and Tantallon. Also worth trying are the Trellis Cafe in Hubbards, and Kiwi Cafe in Chester. Good gluten-free options are available for those who are intolerant. Last, but certainly not least, was the hospitality that was extended by our wonderful hosts Jackie and Kelly. From the very first contact for questions regarding the property, to our final goodbyes, they were congenial, professional, thoughtful and a pleasure to interact with. There are no hidden fees associated with the rental – something that is a rare find. They shared local information, and were directly responsible for some of our best moments and experiences of the week. A truly memorable vacation at a wonderful property!"

  • A lovely home from home! Comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen and beautiful view.

    "Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Ideally located in pleasant surroundings for quiet lazy days or to explore the surrounding countryside. Halifax is a lovely city and Peggy's cove is a real treasure."

  • Outstanding Home - Highly Recommended

    "In four years living in the United States we have been fortunate enough to stay in a number of great holiday rentals across North America. However, this house was, by a very long way, the best. What made it so special? Firstly, the location. It sits on a small hill, away from the minor access road, with magnificent views over the river and out to sea. It is a short drive from Mahone Bay shops. You therefore have the convenience of the (really interesting and charming) town without any of the traffic. Secondly, the house. It has real character. You feel as though you are living in history. It is extremely clean and very well equipped. You will not want for anything. The beds are super comfortable and, combined with the silence, you will sleep really well. Thirdly, the things to do. There is a canoe and rowing boat on a quay just down from the house. If you don’t want to go out on the boats you can sit on the quay and toes the sun going down with a glass of wine. There is a very large garden and a great walking trail next door. Finally, the people. Meg and Paul are very generous and very interesting hosts. They will make you feel very welcome. In summary, this is an extraordinary holiday home located in a beautiful part of the world. It is highly recommended. We certainly cannot wait to go back."
