Great vacations

  • 5 of 5

The house has a fantastic Ocean view and is very comfortable. If you go in Nova Scotia, J recommend you stop at Port Hood at kate's. You can also visit Cape Breton Park easily. This is opinion of traveler from France !

Special Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four days on our way to the Celtic Colours. The view out our front door and from the deck of the Northumberland Strait and Port Hood Island made us want to stay longer. The accommodation is modern, clean and spotless. Kate is welcoming and available if needed. We highly recommend this special property for your stay when touring Cape Breton.

Fantastic! Even better than described!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. Beautiful accommodations, quiet country area, spectacular view, lots of things to do! A great spot to use as a home base for traveling in Cape Breton. Kitchen is well stocked if you would like to cook and eat at the house. Owner was easy to work with and gave us ideas of places to visit and a little historical background. This was a very private spot without traffic or neighbors close by.

A Room with a VIEW!!! An AMAZING VIEW!!!

  • 5 of 5

Don't even hesitate- book your stay NOW!! We stayed in 4 different properties while traveling around Cape Breton, and Kate's was the ABSOLUTE best, without a doubt. When you arrive, be prepared to be totally blown away by the view. Her photographs help you visualize what you will see, but trust me when I say it's a million times better in person! Kate has provided everything you might possibly need...and is quick to reply to your messages/questions/concerns. As someone fairly new to VRBO, I don't mind telling you I was a little freaked out putting my trust in an absolute stranger. Kate was so patient and kind with me, answering every message and phone call in a timely manner. The property is absolutely gorgeous, very well-maintained, and sparkling clean. We loved the sensation of being tucked away on the hill, and slept like babies during our entire stay (so nice and quiet!) When you arrive, Kate will either be there to greet you, or leave instructions for entering your apartment. Then you will find a little booklet welcoming you and outlining everything you will need to know during your stay (as a detail person, this warmed my heart and made me like Kate even more!!) From there you have the options of chatting with Kate (which we did, and loved) or keeping to yourself- either way you will be comfortable and well cared for! While in Port Hood, we went hunting for sea glass in Inverness Beach, about 30 minutes away. We also enjoyed a ceilidh lunch at the Celtic Interpretive Centre just up the road a bit. We didn't eat out very often, instead choosing to buy a few groceries at the local coop just 5 minutes away and using the kitchen of the apartment. We sincerely hope to return to Cape Breton, and when we do, we will be seeking out this property again! Thank you, Kate, for the marvelous conversations and fabulous accommodation! You have an absolute treasure, and we wish you every success. Sure hope to cross paths again!

Couldn't have been better!

Where do I begin? From the spectacular view to the convenient location and the wonderful host, all of our expectations were met. Kate's apartment was perfect for us. It's spacious and well appointed. Kate makes herself available to provide anything you need to make your stay perfect. If you're looking for a true home away in Cape Breton don't hesitate to book Marble Hill Oasis. We'll be back for sure!

Even better than we anticipated and the view spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Nance's place was perfect for our needs and Nance was fantastic to deal with. She even took the time to sit and visit with us and share a bit of the history of the area with us. We cannot say enough about the property or the owner other than we can't wait to come back again.

The local area has breathtaking scenery along the western coastline of Cape Breton island and is very rich in Celtic culture. It is a pristine coastline with many golden sandy beaches nearby and noted to have some of the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. The distance to the nearest sandy beach with lifeguard supervision is 0.5 mile by car or 15-20 minutes along a coastline hiking path. Beautiful Port Hood island is an extension of the community located just a mile offshore.

Route 19 along western Cape Breton island is also the Ceilidh Trail and is known for world renowned music and Scottish heritage. The Red Shoe Pub, owned by some of the infamous Rankin family is a must for live entertainment. The Glen Breton Distillery, North America’s 1st single malt whisky is nearby. It is 24 miles from the Cabot Links, a new world class golf course. Enjoy the adventure of hiking trails at Cape Mabou Highlands with beautiful vistas over the Gulf of St. Lawrence/Atlantic Ocean.Enjoy biking,hiking or running on a 1st class trail,Celtic Shores.Take a beautiful scenic drive along the many destinations of the Ceilidh Trail or a day trip around the world famous Cabot Trail.

Treat your senses…the views, the music, the saltwater air, the seafood fresh from the ocean daily…and so much more!
