About Jitka

I am a retired occupational therapist and currently a potter. I live and work right here in Wreck Cove and take pleasure in seeing guests enjoy this lovely piece of the earth. Since I live here full time, I deal with guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. Both properties are fully furnished and have all the amenities of home!

Jitka purchased this house in 2005

30th Anniversary Celebration!

  • 4 of 5
We just got back from spending four nights at the Studio apartment at Singing Pebbles.
We were celebrating our 30th anniversary!
Coming home to our "cottage" each evening after exploring the Island was delightful.
Jitka's suggestions were very helpful.
God's creative handiwork and majesty is wonderfully displayed in this part of the world!
We would highly recommend Singing Pebbles as a place to stay in the area; being close to many attractions and still a private place with personal attention.
And Jitka's pottery is amazing.

Wonderful property - could not be better!

  • 5 of 5
The beach house overlooks the ocean to the right, Cape Smokey straight ahead and the Cabot Trail to the left. I am not sure that a more picturesque location would be possible. The Singing Pebbles is a very special place indeed! A short walk through the property to Angel's Bluff is a rewarding journey for someone seeking to see the most magnificent sunrise imaginable.

The house is spacious enough for a family to enjoy, will all the amenities of home. Jitka was a warm and friendly host, with lots of suggestions as to what to do and see while on the island. Aside from that, there is lots to do on the property itself with a games room and swimming pond available for your use.

Cape Breton is a wonderful place to visit - I would highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys the outdoors, scenic drives, hiking, adventure... There is a lot more to do than one week could have possibly afforded, and that's why we will be returning one day - hopefully soon!

Breathtaking Ocean-side Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and teen-age girls just returned from a two-week stay at the beach house at Wreck Cove. The house is clean and incredibly spacious with four bedrooms, a tv room, living room and well-appointed kitchen. My favourite feature of the house is the amazing wrap-around deck with the eating area. The views from the deck are spectacular.

The property itself is really exceptional in that it is situated on the most picturesque part of the Cabot Trail (in my opinion). It is close to grocery stores, wonderful restaurants (Main Street Cafe in Ingonish is my favourite), hiking and beaches (Black Cove is nice). The house is on a huge lot overlooking the ocean and the rugged coastline. There is also a pebble beach that you can spend time roaming and picking up stones. We spent many evenings on the beach with a campfire looking at the star-strewn sky. Amazing!!

We really had a wonderful two weeks here exploring Cape Breton and enjoying the peace and serenity at the beach house. Very memorable time with our girls. I would highly recommend the short hike to White Point which is close to the top of Cape Breton and is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. My husband and I also took our kayaks up there.

A note about our host: Jitka could not have been kinder or more helpful. She was always available to answer questions or suggest a restaurant or activity.

One last item about the property. For those with kids, there is no wifi, which was daunting for our girls who love tv. It ended up being a god-send. We spent evenings playing cards, watching movies (Jitka has dozens to choose from), reading and talking. Definitely a plus not a minus!!

Owner's Response: A delight to see families enjoy this little piece of paradise. For guests who need WiFi to collect e-mail or for specific tasks, it is available at my house which is just across the road. You are welcome to sit on the veranda anytime you need to use the internet. There is, however, no TV reception, but, as we've seen, not altogether a bad thing LOL.

Best family vacation!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Cape Breton and I second everything that others have posted in their comments. You cannot beat Cape Breton for the sightseeing or the beauty. We went all over the island and all of it was awesome. We went to see whales at Meat Cove and were not disappointed; we must have seen a dozen, at least! And the vistas! You'll also see tons of moose (careful when driving at night!).

The home was beautiful, as others have posted. We enjoyed the pie and the flowers too and everything the home had to offer. I have to provide a few warnings though....The home could have been cleaner....I don't know who stayed in the home before us but there were tons of long dog hair all over the place....in plain view, rolled under couches, in corners....everywhere! As many members of my family are allergic to dogs, we had quite the fun time with allergic reactions! (not!) So here I am, first thing I had to do was vacuum the place from top to bottom when I first got there....just to find that the vacuum cleaner that is in the house overheats after about five minutes so had to resort to a broom. As it's impossible to get rid of dander without a thorough cleaning, I would caution allergy sufferers that this home is pet friendly.

Also, if you like a good pillow to sleep on, bring your own as most of the pillows in the house are flat as pancakes. While I'm on bedding, some of the sheets (as some of the towels) had stains on them...gross! Limited face clothes for a week if you're more than four or five people visiting too so you might want to bring a supply. Same goes for kitchen linen as there's only one dishrag and 2-3 dishtowels. If you offer a home for rental with linen included that linen should be replaced more often than what is done in this home.

The ad says "sleeps 8-10" but that would mean you need to use the basement as there's a futon down there. But the basement is unlivable due to very high humidity and mold (and its related smell). No problem in the rest of the house so I would say sleeps 8 comfortably.

All in all, a very good week. I would recommend the home with the above provisos.

Owner's Response: Yes, we do advertise a pet friendly accommodation so that should be considered carefully when reserving for persons with pet allergy.
We advise guests that pets are not permitted on any of the furniture nor onto any of the hardwood floor areas which includes the entire second floor and the main floor bedroom. Failure to comply with these conditions would result in forfeiture of the pet security deposit.
Upon arrival we also invite guests to feel free to ask for any additional supplies or equipment that they may need as soon as it becomes evident and to alert us to any housekeeping oversights. We are close at hand and most issues such as turning on the dehumidifier or bringing over some extra towels, are quickly and easily resolved before they could bring any tarnish to an otherwise lovely vacation.

Best Family Vacation Ever !!

  • 5 of 5
My grandchildren said over and over again that this was the best family vacation ever. They loved Singing Pebbles . The beach house was perfect for our family of 7. The location on the beach gave us several hours of peaceful "together" time . S'mores and hot dogs on the beach, watching "Bruce" the eagle fly in and out each day, star gazing and the game room were wonderful. Elizabeth loved the pets. One day we declared "Levi Day" for our youngest. He could choose the activities. He chose to stay at the beach house and eat spaghetti. We did however leave and found Donella's Puffin Tours, Captain Marks Whale Watching , Baddeck, Skyline Trail, Main Street Restaurant and so many other things to be close enough to enjoy. Thanks Jitka for making this such a memorable experience. By the way, the pottery has a place of honor and I really am going to use it :)

Perfect Place to Stay and Explore!

  • 5 of 5
My family of six adults had a wonderful week staying in the Singing Pebbles beach house this summer. The location is perfect for getting to many different sites on the island. Jitka took good care of us, starting with a fresh apple pie and wildflowers at our arrival, and then her timely response when a crow knocked out power to the house suddenly toward the end of our stay. We felt welcomed and at home, and certainly could have enjoyed another week! Absolutely recommended!

Owner's Response: I must share credit for responding to the power outage. It was caused by a crow who shorted out a near-by transformer. My contribution was merely to call the power company who were here in less than an hour to make the repair.
I just noticed that this site is recommended for "Tourists without a car". I would not recommend coming without a vehicle. Although we did once have a guest who had arrived with an expired driver's license and could not obtain a rental. We picked him up at the shuttle. He stayed close to home for a week and we brought him back to the shuttle at week's end. He had enjoyed his vacation, but did not see as much of Cape Breton as he should have.
