“Amazing cottage, awesome views”

My husband and I went to Nova Scotia with two boys ages 8 and 9 in the middle of Aug. This was one of the best vacations that we have had recently.
Egon is full of fun and very easy to deal with. His takes pride in his cottage and it reflects in every corner of a very clean and extremely organized modern cottage.
Great collection of books, songs, movies, video games, sand bag with boxing gloves, push up bar, climbing bars, 3 kayaks, One kayak had glass bottom, 4 life jackets, bow & arrow, fully equipped fishing rod, everything you need in the kitchen and list can go on. Cottage is so private right on the private beach. Beautiful bike path across the street which goes all the way to Halifax.
Peggy's code is15 minutes drive, Lunenburg (UNESCO heritage) is 45 min drive, Mahone bay is 30 min drive, Halifax is 20 min drive. You could easily drive to Northern beaches (warmest water beaches) in less than 2 hours but we loved the water temperatures at the cottage. We are used to cool water near Boston and water at the beach at cottage was warmer(around 65-66 degrees). Every day kids kayaked to small islands, played in the sand, swam all day, fished.
I wanted to travel around but kids and my husband were just so happy at the cottage that we ended up spending most of the time in the cottage.
Cottage is so private yet close to everything. Nice peaceful neighborhood.
Egon always responded to our queries within seconds of asking.
If we lived any closer we would be here every year.
WE really get to relax and enjoy as family.

Thanks you Egon for sharing your peace of heaven.

After our long day of driving, Egon was there waiting for us, and get us set up. This was a perfect spot for either hanging out (which we did for a couple of days) and doing day trips: 30 minutes to downtown Halifax, 35 to Peggy’s Cove, 40 to Lunenburg, 10 minutes to grocery stores. (We also drove to Tiverton for whale watching.) It was quiet, off the main road so we couldn’t hear any cars, and right at the water’s edge. The kids enjoyed playing on the beach and kayaking. Inside was comfortable, lots of things to do, and worked perfectly for our stay – we loved how it was cozy, yet with enough space to spread out in. Looking out in the morning was a lovely way to wake up. (A heron was fishing on the beach one morning.) Egon was an excellent host. We had questions a couple of times, and Egon answered right away, as well as showing us the ropes for fishing! Great stay.

“Look no further....”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Seriously...this is it! This place was so amazing! You couldn't get any closer to the water. When the tide is up it felt like we were in a floating home. It is so quiet and peaceful. Just sailboats and tug boats going by. No loud jet skis or speed boats. The cottage is in a perfect spot. Only 25 min to Halifax, 30 min to Peggy's Cove and 45 min to Lunenburg. Great for day trips. We ended up going to Halifax twice. The private beach was great for our two boys ages 13 and 11. They snorkel everyday catching crabs and starfish. 3 Kayaks were available to use anytime we wanted. Such a beautiful bay to paddle around. The cottage itself is a studio style. There are curtains and half wall partitions that separate the sleeping areas. Sure...walls would have been nice but honestly if there were walls you would lose all the amazing views this property offers. Egon was a pleasure to deal with. He takes a lot of pride in his property and it shows! He was available via text or phone anytime we had questions. Even if it was how to work the TV! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If we were closer it would be an annual trip!!

“Fantastic family vacation experience”
Reviewed September 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We loved our stay at this cottage, it met every expectation. We vacationed here with our two children, ages 8 & 10, and it was a perfect family getaway. The owner was great to work with and very responsive and helpful. The private beach was fantastic and the kids played there all day as well as used the included kayaks. The location is very private, but also 10 minutes from town. We loved the modern conveniences of the cottage, it is the perfect mix of modern convenience and quiet, oceanfront vacation spot. We had a wonderful week here and are already planning to return next year.

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This property was exactly as shown in the photos. Breathtaking views right on the ocean. Studio was well equipped inside with everything you could need. Close to tourist attractions for those wanting to explore. We stayed here with another couple and couldn't have had a better location. Thanks Egon for sharing your place. Would definitely recommend to others.

“Natural Oceanside Beauty”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Updated cottage is literally right on the water, with its own little private beach. Very quiet and comfortable. Lots of wildlife and unsurpassed waterfront views. Water is generally calm, perfect for using the supplied kayaks. The cottage is a clean open concept design, and uses a heat pump and solar power. Owner is a pleasure to deal with.

“A little piece of Heaven!!!”
Reviewed September 6, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was an awesome vacation spot! Exceptionally clean, spacious, inviting, peaceful, and when the ad says " private beach", that it is. The owner is a wonderful person to rent from. Sitting on that deck with nothing but the moon,stars and sounds of the ocean you would think you were in the middle of nowhere! However, so close to anything you would need! I hope to return!
