5th Stay at this Home and Loved it Everytime!
A group of women and I stay at this house every year and we absolutely love it. Its our home away from home and has everything you need for an extremely comfortable stay. Never a complaint. Love the outdoor shower! And you cannot beat the location. Best beach house around :)
Away from it all
From start to finish, dealing with Joe was a great experience. Excellent host. The cottage had everything we needed. We loved it! Very family friendly place. Lots of room for us and our four children. Perfect, quiet beach just steps out the door. Amazing sunsets. Nestled in Port Hood, a friendly little community where you can really experience Cape Breton. Truly everything you need is there, and you are away from the hustle and bustle. Near traditional Celtic music and square dances. Lots of fun. The cottage is really beautiful inside. Views from the front porch swing and the use of an outdoor shower were favourite features. Highly recommend!
Again, outstanding stay in Port Hood
The reason we stayed at the Vissers Cottage was after our stay last year we were hooked. Cottage is amazingly spacious with everything you need. Just bring your family, food and drink and the rest is well covered. You will need nothing.
Location is amazing, cottage is amazing, views are amazing, beaches are amazing ... I think you get the point ;)
Already told Joe we will be back next year (3rd year in a row) without question. We were 2 couples with 2 kids 3 & 5 ..... everyone enjoyed themselves all day every day.
The Perfect Cottage
We had a wonderful week at Joe and Lisa ‘ s Cottage. The entire experience from booking to return of deposit was nothing but first rate.
Once again we had an awesome week at the cottage.
Thank you Lisa and Joe

Sunsets, beach, and a fully stocked, lovely cottage
We had a wonderful stay the Visser’s cottage. The wrap around deck that is partially covered was perfect for being in or out of the sun and to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. There is lots of comfortable indoor and outdoor seating.
Inside the cottage is very well laid out with one new bathroom upstairs and another bathroom downstairs. The rooms are a good size. The cottage had a high chair, play pen, and lots of games and puzzles. The kitchen had everything one would need and the fridge is a full size. The washer off the kitchen is convenient too. We would set up at the beach for hours or make return trips. The cottage’s location allows you to take full advantage of the beautiful beach and sunsets. Our family members of all ages enjoyed their stay and we would certainly contact The Visser’s to stay again in the future.
Would recommend to anyone
Very nice, neat and welcoming home. Lots of character and space in the house would easily come back again. Right next to the beach with friendly people in the neighborhood
My house is located on Port Hood beach which is a safe beach because it is well protected by land. Water temperatures vary between 22 and 24 degrees C. The supervised area of Port Hood beach is normally about 200 meters wide beginning at the breakwater on the left side of the beach and extending about 100 meters to the right of the chair. The supervised swimming area is marked by red and yellow flags on either side of the beach. The water is very shallow, allowing the water to heat up early in the season and stay warm.
