Great, restful spot! Lots of space and natural light, great kitchen, patio and outdoor fire pit!

  • 4 of 5

We were only there for one night, but the cottage itself is excellent, and for the most part easy to find. Marcus' directions via email were more than adequate and Google Maps will pick up the place just fine!

More than enough space for the four of us with great amenities, particularly anything on the first floor! The downstairs was surprising; I didn't expect it to have as much natural light as it did, plus it's own entrance off the side... just a great layout overall, really!

Patio was great for cooking and hanging out. It might have been just us not figuring it out, but a light for the patio that could be consistently turned on versus a motion sensor would be ideal for post-BBQ hangout time. Again, we might not have been turning on the right switches.

Marcus is great to work with and very flexible. Our trip was very "in flux", but Marcus had no trouble with our version of time and still made an effort to come check in on us and make sure we were comfortable. I should also mention Marcus has done a great job laying out local tourism information in the cottage, including penciling in times things are open or providing notes for when is best to go. That goes a long way for someone completely new to the area.

While the view is great, you can't access the water directly from the property, though it's only a short distance to a local trail that'll take you down. The property itself ends at a cliff (well fenced) with a drop down to the water/beach below. Thought to be honest, in this area you won't spend too much time on this beach as the tides are very high and will come straight up to the rock face.

Marcus has compensated for lack of direct beach access with an excellent, well stocked and well positioned fire pit that's ideal for roasting marshmallows, taking in some mostly uninterrupted night sky and watching the moon rise over the basin. Trust me when I say we didn't miss the beach!

Highly recommend, particularly for families or those looking for a quiet, well-equipped, cottage experience.

Amazing view, awesome house and a great vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Kingsport Beach House, for a week, in August. The view was incredible, walks along the beach were fabulous and the house had everything we needed. Marcus is an amazing host and answers your questions promptly. He is also an excellent resource if you're wondering where to shop for meat and seafood or produce--try the farmer's markets.

We took two day trips--one to Hall's Harbour (great lobster) and the other to Digby (Fundy's Restaurant for the scallops)--otherwise, we visited the local small towns. Time was spent in Canning, Kentville, and Berwick. The people were friendly, informative and laid back and we loved staying small town. We ate at an Irish Restaurant in Kentville and the food was very good.

Overall, this was my favorite vacation. The tides in Minas Basin are unbelievable. Marcus has a well-equipped and comfortable house and we were completely relaxed and enjoying retirement. See for yourself--you won'the be disappointed--we weren't!

Clean, room for all, well stocked kitchen, attentive owner/host, beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Recently 11 of us stayed for 4 nights at Marcus' beach house. He dealt with all promptly from booking, to notifying me a few days before we were due to come, to finding out about the hours of the beach canteen, etc. He's on the ball ! The house is very clean and in fact seemed freshly painted. We had 3 small children with us and they enjoyed the books and toys available. Two nice full bathrooms and laundry facilities were welcome to have. The house is on a bluff but with access to the beach via stairs very nearby. It is a beautiful area with the tides coming and going. Gorgeous views. Would definitely recommend this location, the owner and would return.

This home was everything we could have hoped for and more! Spacious and cozy, just minutes from the red sandy shore, complete with a firepit in the backyard on the oceanfront, our stay here was amazing!
