About Carlo Weickert

We are Carlo and Becky Weickert. After 30 years of running our own businesses, we retired in 2010 to enjoy our two sons' families and especially our three granddaughters. We look forward to spending more time on our boat, travelling around the world and generally enjoying our 'Ocean Oasis'. We look forward to sharing 'Ocean Meadow Cottage', our local knowledge, experiences and love of N.S. with visitors be they from Canada, the USA, or other parts of the world. We welcome all!

Carlo Weickert purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Carlo Weickert chose Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia became our adopted home in 1990 after living in many parts of Canada.We love the Maritime life style and want to share it's beauty, friendly people and many diverse activities with as many people as possible. Ocean Meadow Cottage is ideally situated for exploring both rural and urban adventures. Nova Scotia is truly a hidden treasure just waiting for you to come and experience.

What makes this cottage unique

The peaceful beauty of our property is exceptional and yet you are close to many amenities and attractions. Wonderful for boaters, fishermen, whale watching and other outdoor activities as well as city and tourist venues. Halifax is filled with history, culture, attractions, great dining and beauty.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the most incredible vacation experience! You thought of every little detail from beginning to end. Loved the wine, flowers, music and fireplace on arrival. The cottage is pristine and beautiful. Your blue binders of information and tours of N.S. and eateries was so comprehensive! This was the perfect holiday so of course we'll be back next Oct.!

A final thank you for the "Welcome Hug" - it was grand (you're a true Maritimer!) This place is amazing and you are the ultimate ambassadors of hospitality!

Perfect, plus!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a perfect location. All the comforts of home plus!

Hosts have spared no efforts to ensure their guests have a perfect vacation.

Beautifully decorated, with every convenience, new TV's with all the channels and Netflix. Great information and maps for all the touring you would need, even a GPS fully loaded with directions. Was one of the best vacations we have had, we were sad to leave.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

A well furnished and equipped, clean and fresh cottage. Carlo (or someone) spent a lot of time on information folders which were very useful and appreciated as was the sat. nav. which helped greatly because we kept getting lost.

A peaceful, quiet and secluded setting which we loved but may not be to everyone's taste.

We regret not meeting Carlo because he was on holiday but he phoned a couple of times to ensure all was well.

This was the perfect spot for a peaceful, yet very active vacation week. Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

I do a lot of VRBO vacations. This one was one of the best. The house is the perfect size for our needs, and is beautifully kept. There was nothing we were not provided with, including welcoming fresh flowers and a bottle of wine! Carlo gave a great tutorial on NS, what to see, some history, where to eat, and welcomed us to sit on their dock to watch the sunset. Loved visiting with him. Wish we had a little more time to discuss "world events"!!! Did not get to meet his wife because we were so busy all week, and the weather was a little iffy around sunset times. Strongly encourage you to consider this property for it's location, quality and owner's helpfulness. It is close to modern conveniences, but also close to some of the historic sites. We took 5 day trips to explore the various regions and were never disappointed. Next time, I'll plan to go in mid-summer for a little better weather, but it did not deter us! Again, such a peaceful get-away.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation. Nova Scotia is an absolutely beautiful place to see. Our house was perfect. Carlo was an incredible host with lots of helpful tips and he created 2 binders full of maps of places to visit and awesome places to eat. We definitely want to come back and stay there again. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter, who lives in Tennessee, and I spent seven days at the Ocean View Cottage, hosted by Carlo Weickert. Prior to our arrival Carlo furnished a large amount of info re the area, dining establishments, travel routes affording the best views, etc. So, we were somewhat ready, we thought. But once we arrived and Carlo took a lot of his time to 'brief' us on the various options, we realized that we knew only a little of what Nova Scotia offered during day trips from St. Margaret's. Each day we followed a different route and each day, other than two days dining at Lefty's, we enjoyed the cuisine offered by different restaurants recommended by Carlo...on the matter of views and natural beauty, Carlo proved correct; on the matter of dining, Carlo was even more to be complimented!!

The Cottage itself was perfect for our needs and large enough that it would easily have accommodated two couples, with or without children. I marveled at the cleanliness and layout of the Cottage, as well as the fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. Quite easily the Cottage could readily serve as a full-time residence as is, it was so complete and so spacious!

Thank you Carlo for sharing your Cottage and all the grounds, including your private dock with the 47' Bayliner (no, Carlo might have drawn the line on his generous hospitality had we wanted to take the boat out on our own!).

I'd recommend that anyone looking to spend some time in Nova Scotia, and to do so with beautiful housing and great hospitality, all at a very reasonable price, contact Carlo and line up Oceanview Cottage!!!
