The only two good things about this place is the front porch and the location. It was a 1/2 block to the beach. From the front it looks great until you enter. the place is definitely old. the beds are awful. The washer/dryer is upstairs so if you do not have the whole place rented you do not have use... More

The purpose of our visit was to spend Christmas with our daughter and son and their families. . From the outside, the cottage looked okay but once inside we began to see some of the problems, electrical, many, many extension cords everywhere connecting many things to one outlet and the note saying not to turn the lights off in the...

Fantastic location to walk to beaches and for no frills holiday. Very laid back and families must love it because the downstairs unit has a lot of space for kids and parents. Be prepared though for the fact that there are handwritten signs posted not to use certain power plugs because it will cause electrical problems. Also no airconditioning and... More

We located BBI advertised on BB Canada. The description and photos described it as a spacious, tidy and well kept establishment.......................oh my, we got that one wrong. From the moment we arrived until we escaped, we felt uncomfortable and we were perplexed that we actually ended up staying one night. We never even met the owner or overseer. Upon arrival,... More
