“Nice find and economical too!”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The home is clean and quaint....everything you expect to find in a beach side cottage....except for the locals coming down to park and enjoy the beach..it was very quiet and just what we wanted...it is a moment's walk to a small lake or roaring ocean surf.....strolls along the beach are wonderful at low tide...beautiful views and lots of contrasting landscape...great spot to use as a home base..lots to do and see in the towns of Lahave and ludenburg for non beach day activities.

“Nice homebase”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed our stay at Gladee's for a week in August. Having one "home base" when traveling is the best way to relax. For the most part, we found Gladee's as advertised. It was not quite as secluded as we thought it would be. Several people used the beach daily, but it was still quiet and enjoyable. The only real drawback was a spider infestation on the deck. There were so many spiders, it made it impossible to relax outside. Not sure if spraying is an option. I did make the owners aware of the issue and hopefully they will be able to take care of it before the next renter. The worst part of the trip was that we didn't have another week to stay and explore Nova Scotia more. It is a beautiful place.

Management Response
Sep 13, 2016
Thanks for the nice review. We are glad you had a great stay here. We are sorry about the spiders, but we had them all vacuumed up and sprayed around the places they like on the deck with a natural solution of vinegar and peppermint so they don't come back.

“Great location and very good value for money”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Fabulous location right on the coast and surrounded by great views and wildlife. We spent 4 days in this house that is adequately equipped and whilst not for us plenty of things for children to play with during a stay .The owners left us excellent instructions and guides on things to do during our stay and at all times were contactable if necessary. It was also a good touch to leave some cakes and cookies out for us on arrival. The location must be fantastic in the summer with its proximity to the sea. Whilst we thought there were some upgrading that could be done we totally understand that would probably reflect in a higher rental rate that may not be ideal for families etc who are looking for great value for money. A minor point was the lack of wifi but that in no way detracted from the charm of the overall spacious property and its brilliant location. One tip ..use the instructions to find the property that are included on the owners web site and are indeed exceptionally easy to follow...as sat nav may struggle to easily find !

Really not much more to say than perfect. The hosts were easily available. The cottage was equipped with everything one could need....including the owner's art which was simply lovely! The views were spectacular. Enjoyed walking along the beach and there's an amazing trail at the end of the beach as well. Only a short ride into Lunenburg for all amenities. Highly recommend and hope to go back again soon.

“Relaxation and Beauty”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Gladee's is located right at the shore with a very good Atlantic Canada sandy beach. It is also beside a natural lake/lagoon body of water and both are within 300 feet with no obstructions to the shore. Get up in the morning, have a coffee on the deck and then head to the beach. There is a small boardwalk and parking lot for local tourism but it does not take away from the property. Even during the day when other people are on the public beach it was not noisy or disturbing. It was a great visit with a very relaxing atmosphere and beautiful views.

“Perfect family vacation at a perfect place”

Kevin and Suzanne made our stay at gladees the absolute perfect family vacation for my husband, myself, our 3 young boys, and my inlaws. We are already planning on making it a yearly rental. They have made the beach house into a "home", every amenity is there waiting. We usually pack beach toys and towels and everything to keep kids happy, but at gladees, they had it all!

The sounds of the waves at night was serene, the sunrises were breathtaking, and the best part.....when everyone else parks and walks miles to get to the beach, we walk out our front door and across the street. People must get jealous watching how close to the water the house is!

Kevin and Suzanne. Thank you. For everything! You both are widely spoken about since our vacation. We will see you next year. For sure. And many more years to come!
