About Angie & Doug

I am late in leaving a review as we stayed in July 2016, however it was a holiday to remember. The hosts were wonderful and very helpful. The property is gorgeous and I often tell people that it is my dream home. You could not ask for a better set up. The walk to the beach is short and well worth it. The best sunsets every night!
Stunning property regally appointed.
A terrific getaway that has thought of every little detail down to lobster tools. The owners were quick and helpful whenever we had a query. Can strongly recommend Big Island and this accommodation as top notch - Will and Trina

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in your lovely cottage.
It is very well equipped, and the view is fantastic. The size of the
property is exceptional, and our Granddaughters really enjoyed playing there and riding their bikes.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to enjoy it to the fullest because of our family reunion at Arisaig..(which was a huge success). Hope to return some day.

It's a beauty!
We rented this cottage (it is really a house) the last week of Sept/first week of Oct 2016 -- it is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. We used it as a base to explore PEI ; many parts of NS and NB. The surrounds are absolutely beautiful -- beach ; Northumberland Strait; sunsets.... The house is very well appointed ; décor; furnishings etc are well above average -- very comfortable; roomy; lovely sun porch and deck. highly recommend. you will not be disappointed. Owner is very friendly and nice to deal with.
If you're looking for perfection in a cottage, your search is over! This is more like a home than a cottage - it has everything you could need for your stay - great beach, huge lawn for games, a wonderful screened in room, a beautiful deck for entertaining, or just enjoying the ocean view. Even on non-beach days, it was just so nice to relax inside. You won't be disappointed!
What a nice spot !
We rent Angie’s cottage in summer 2016 and it was just fabulous. The cottage is located in an almost 10 acres wide landscape in front of the ocean. In fact it’s in front of a sea inlet. The cottage is a small walk away from a nice ocean beach where you can swim or sat down all day along until the nice beautiful sunset.
The cottage is really nice, ultra clean and fully equipped. The only things you have to bring are your own clothes.
And what about Angie s warm-hearthed welcome. She’ll make sure everything is perfect and that nothing is missing.
If you’re looking for a nice spot to relax and to be far from crowded place, this is the place to rent in Nova Scotia.
