  • Nice location for a family gathering!

    "We really liked the location, layout and amenities of the property that served our two day visit very well. Had the weather been better would have enjoyed the deck and outdoor elements. The property accommodated our party of eight very well. The property was clean however there was some signs of needing a little maintenance - for example the front screen door was not clasping, the kitchen sink had developed a leak and it was evident that kitchen cabinets could use be reorganized. The other item was the volume of wet leaves that collected in the driveway, sidewalk and door step. We did our best to broom a path so that no one would slip. Ryan did respond to questions presented in a timely manner. We were disappointed that we could not use the fire place and felt that months of use should be specified in the property write-up. These are all items that can be easily addressed and I am sure they will be. I would and have recommend the property to family and friends."

  • A practical South Shore touring base.

    "Vacationers who want an economical base for auto touring the greater South Shore or other regions will find this convenient.. This is a brand new property to the rental market. The location is in an area of Nova Scotia that has minimal nearby amenities, by US vacation standards. The only retail for fresh foods and seafood of any kind are once a week Farmer's Markets in three neighboring (20+ min drive) villages, all at the end of the week. This is not helpful for the Saturday/week rental. Bring your own food unless you will be happy with Independent/President's Club basics from local market. WE found no other options, despite inquiries.There are nice beaches that are all free, but require a short drive. Because the area has been logged and regrown very densely, and because bugs are plentiful in the forest (not at the property, which has nice sea breezes) there is no hiking, other than one rail trail shared with ATVs or short seaside walks, again 20+ min auto distance. The house is a recent rehab, with prefab and Walmart grade items. Practical but without ambiance, if that matters to you. The porch overlooks the bay, but there is a well travelled road directly in front of and visible to the house. Children have open play space in front of the house, but the lawn is a steep grade to the road without fencing. There are tourist sites nearby (30 - 60 min drive or farther), Lunenberg , Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, and one ferry ride in Chester to an island . Boat launches in some places, few opportunities to rent boats, and no boat traffic of any sort evident in the bay, even in the first week of August in fine weather. An hour's drive will take you to Halifax which has much to see and do. All transactions are over the internet, we have had no direct contact with owners, managers, neighbors or other locals."

  • Lovely place, welcoming people, everything we needed!

    "We booked at short notice for 9 nights, were accommodated and welcomed by Nina and everyone we came into contact with at Tall Pines. We ended up staying on for 4 more nights and could not have wished for an easier option for our needs. Hubbards has a lovely, quiet beach, we ate at the Trellis cafe which was very nice with friendly staff, the farmers market is great! We liked the fisheries museum at Lunenberg, whale watching at Tiverton, Digby, a walk along Martinique Beach in the sun, the bay at Shelburne, organic bread and fresh vegetables from Hubbards Farmers Market. Tall Pines has everything most people need and it has been lovely relaxing inside and outside at the house. Bags of space, friendly people, good value, not sure what else could be expected. Highly recommended."

  • Amazing stay at Anne and Doug's VRBO

    "I cannot say enough good things about my stay at this two bedroom apartment and I highly recommend it. It really was like a home away from home. The apartment is very comfortable, with two lovely bedrooms, a good sized kitchen, a nice dining area, a desk and a comfy living room with a day bed for an extra person. The in-floor heating is a real treat. The kitchen is very well appointed with lots of dishes, cutlery, pots, utensils and other wares to cook for a family. They even provided a cookie sheet and muffin tins so we could bake. The bathroom is roomy and there were several fluffy bath towels. Bonus - there is a washer and dryer in the suite. The walkout to a lovely back yard and the quiet neighbourhood make this apartment an A-l;ist choice. Thanks Anne for taking such good care of us! We will definitely see you again."
