"We had a very nice trip to Sauble Beach. The owner was very easy to work with, helpful in answering questions, and refunded our deposit quickly. The cottage has been partially remodeled and suited our needs as we explored the Bruce Peninsula. The kitchen is maybe the best well-stocked kitchen in our 7 VRBO rentals across the US & Canada, the wifi had good speed, and the wagon to haul stuff to the beach was most appreciated. The only issue with the cottage itself was the screen missing in the back door so we couldn't leave it open at night due to bugs coming in. This prevents getting a cross breeze, which could be an issue in hotter months since this home doesn't have AC. The walk to the beach is simple and easy for just nearly anyone. However, the trail from the home to the beach does come out onto the First Nations portion of the beach. This isn't bad per se, but we were stopped twice during our stay by a patrol vehicle stating we needed to pay a walk-on fee. Once we explained where we were renting a home they let us come on without paying, but did suggest the homeowner get a pass for guests. Also, this is a drive-on beach and you'll need to get on the other side of the berm to be out of the way of traffic. The home is close to town but far enough that it's not noisy and we walked pretty much everywhere we went. The cottage shares a lot with another cottage and there isn't much privacy between the two, which could be good or bad depending upon who your neighbors are, but we got lucky with a nice family. Our children played together some. We couldn't find the Netflix password posted anywhere, but we didn't try to turn on the TV either as we were busy doing other things. Parking was a bit tight for us (full size pickup and an SUV crossover) without hanging out in the street a little, but mostly you should have room for 2 cars. Overall, we would recommend a stay here."
