Breathtaking Ocean-side Vacation Home
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.
