Our 3 night stay at Sunset Piper

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 7 girlfriends spent 3 glorious nights at Sunset Piper this past weekend for a friend's special birthday. It was a cold and damp couple of days to start, but the caretaker delivered dry firewood and we had 3 fireplaces blazing!! The sleeping arrangements suited our purposes very well, the beds very clean, fresh and comfortable. We took advantage of the large tub in the master suite. The kitchen is well equipped and we managed to cook some fabulous meals there. On Sunday the sun came out and we hiked the beach in front of the property and also the public beach down the road.

We highly recommend this property if you are looking for a comfortable and well equipped home away from home.

Amazing property in Nova Scotia

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sunset Piper in July 2015. We were in Little Harbor for my son's wedding. The home is stunning from the drive up, to magnificent lawns, to the water views. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Melmerby beach is close by. I highly recommend this vacation rental. My many thanks to Stephanie.

Excellent Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sunset Piper from 7/11-7/19 and it was truly amazing! The property is breathtaking and the views are stunning on all sides. We had a large family reunion outside on the huge property and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house is very comfortable and accomodating for our large family. The beautiful Melmurby Beach is less than 5 minutes away and lots of free parking and no crowds to deal with. The owners were so easy to deal with and responded to our requests immediately. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and entertainment by the house "Piper" Harold at our family party. He was a huge hit with all the guests! Would definitely recommend this vacation rental as it was truly a week to remember.
