Beautiful suite with a great view

  • 5 of 5

My young family stayed at this property for 5 nights. We really enjoyed ourselves.

The pictires don't do the place justice (and they are nice pictures). 10 foot ceilings, amazing view and a little kitchen that almost had everything we do at home. We were quite impressed by how well it was stocked.

Richard was very friendly and helpful. Another review mentioned hearing footsteps, bugs and smoke, yes you can hear footsteps but you can't smell any smoke and there were hardly any bugs at all when we were there. The door was open for most of the time with no issues.

We built a little firepit on the water and had quite a few fires. All of the firewood was provided.

My kids had fun in the water and enjoyed hunting for seashells. The tides made some evenings even better when you could hear the waves crashing on the shore from the house.

If you have young kids like us with an early bedtimes, you might find yourself on the pull out sofa so you can still enjoy your evening. It's as comfortable as any other pull out but I felt the waves more than made up for it.

It was a very nice stay and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you!

A generally positive experience

  • 4 of 5

Richard, the owner, is great. Despite a mixup in our arrival date, he responded quickly to ready the place for us and also demonstrated incredible integrity in honouring a discount that was no longer in effect. High praise to him. What's good about this place? Beautiful kitchen and shower, very comfortable bed and living room furniture, well-appointed home that had everything we needed, very clean, lovely view.

What's not so good? The living room heats up like an oven during the day; an air conditioner or ceiling fan would be an excellent addition. The property is tricky to locate; the address marker is not at eye level and we drove back and forth along the dirt road a number of times before we finally found it. The bugs are absolutely vicious. Deer flies dive bomb you whenever you step outside and the black flies are unrelenting! Bring bug spray. We could often hear the occupants upstairs; soundproofing isn't great and I could also smell cigarette smoke on several occasions. I'm severely allergic to smoke and therefore quite sensitive. Fortunately, it wasn't bad enough to make me ill, just uncomfortable. Perhaps most people would be unaffected, but I was definitely aware of it.

All in all, I would recommend staying at Richard's. The positives outweighed the negatives.

Peaceful and lovely hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Greatly enjoyed our 4 night stay in this lovely part of the world. House had everything we needed(apart from a kettle !) it was comfortable and in a super place to unwind. The views were stunning. The pictures in the brochure did not do the house justice. The house was clean and reasonably well equipped. We did not meet the owner although there was someone upstairs during our visit.We enjoyed the local produce especially the lobster suppers in Baddeck and the fresh fish from the Kissing Cod on the warf. Was worth the trip along the unsurfaced road.

Quiet Luxurious stay with a wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

This Lower level suite is beautifully furnished and very spacious. The view from the couches to the ocean is incredible. Having the private beach all to yourself is second to none. We loved having a fire every night on the beach. We always tried to end our sight seeing day early enough so we could go back to the suite and enjoy the surroundings and the quiet solitude. Thank you for making our stay in Cape Breton very enjoyable and relaxing. We highly recommend this suite you will not regret it.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I used this property for our honeymoon in 2009. We went there in October and though cool and rainy, this remote beach house was great for our needs. It has modern features and is very cozy. The door opens right onto your own private beach.

The owners are very nice and you couldn't find nicer people than you can in Cape Breton Island. We walked for hours along the cost and hiked to a great waterfall that empties into the sea. We will definitely be back soon!
