Unfortunately we had a family emergency and had to cancel our booking 3 days before it took place. While we were extremely saddened by this, family is most important and therefore the loss of money on the rental didn't seem so important. We had contacted Alix with the bad news and she was very concerned and sent her thoughts and prayers. She went above and beyond listing the property on many sites to cover some of our loss cost. In the end she was able to return a portion of the rental money which was appreciated very much as we know this is a loss to her as well. When you have great rental owners you know they take pride in their property and that makes the stay much more enjoyable!
We had a fabulous time staying at Richard’s cute cottage in Cape Dauphin. The house is located several miles down a gravel road, so it feels quiet and somewhat remote. It is perched on a hill overlooking both the ocean and a fresh-water pond, with easy access down to the beach. We loved exploring the beach and were endlessly entertained by the myriad of animal activities on the pond. There were geese, ducks, beavers, seagulls, deer, foxes, and even an eagle. The house is on the small side, but suited our family of four just fine. We loved our stay in Cape Dauphin and would happily stay at this house again.
