About Karen and David Shearing-Wittig
Dave and I hope to make Cape Breton and this home our "forever place" but until we can we thought others should be able to enjoy what it and this area have to offer.
Karen and David Shearing-Wittig purchased this House in 2010
Why Karen and David Shearing-Wittig chose Inverness County
Dave and I have shared a love of Cape Breton and the natural beauty that it offers for many years and in 2010 decided we wanted to have the chance to spend more time here. Our work lives are busy and we travel constantly. The Beach House is our place to relax, slow down, unwind and enjoy the enchanting kindness of the people from this island.

When you have to be stuck indoors....
Unfortunately the fickle weather of this region curtained our outdoors adventures but having this house as a home base made the week with a group of guests much more bearable. The common living area is open with wonderful views and the kitchen is the best equipped of all our many short term rentals over the years. Karen was very responsive to any questions and knowing of our late arrival warned us of the early market closing. We highly recommend this property.
Thank you for your positive review. We are sorry that the weather did not cooperate!!

The Beach House was immaculate, expansive and tastefully decorated. The location on the shore was very dramatic especially when viewed through the enormous bay window from the comfy couch! The place was even better than advertised. I would highly recommend.
Marie will be happy you noted how clean she makes The Beach House - she is a consummate professional and we could not do this without her! We are glad you enjoyed your time!!
Didn't want to leave . . .
We spent two glorious weeks enjoying the Beach House, and when it was over, none of us wanted to leave. The Beach House has everything you might need for a luxurious stay in the cradle between the Cape Breton Highlands and the sea. Easy walks to Aucoin Bakery, Frog Pond Coffee, and a short drive to Cheticamp made everything convenient —and of course the rugged beauty of Cape Breton Highlands National Park is literally minutes away. Communications with Karen and Dave were spot-on - immediately there when you needed a question answered, but invisible otherwise. The home had plenty of room for us (2 couples traveling together) - we never even used the downstairs bedroom! We used the outdoor grill on the beautiful deck, which we used in conjunction with the fully - and I mean FULLY - stocked kitchen. Furnishings were comfortable and perfect for just enjoying the home, and taking in those million-dollar sunsets over the Bay of St. Lawrence. The sea and sky change colors and moods every single day.
As we were leaving, Hurricane Dorian was approaching, and arrived later that day. With incredible generosity, Karen and Dave offered us additional time if we wanted to hunker down ’til it passed, assuring us the Beach House was up to it. We didn’t stay, but their generosity in offering is only one of the many reasons we’ll be back as soon as we possibly can. As deserving of 5 stars as any property we’ve ever stayed in.
Thank you so much for your kind review!! We wanted to also thank you from Marie. She appreciated you thinking of her!!!
Do come back!

A+++ Family Reunion Destination!
Everything about our stay at Karen and David's Beach House was perfect. They responded to our pre-trip questions within an hour or two. VRBO's description of the house was accurate. When we entered the house we "hooted and cheered" as we celebrated the beauty of the home and its setting - tastefully decorated, 180 degree+ view of the ocean, lovely "happy hour" deck, modern appliances, surplus/high quality kitchen ware, and much more - all made for a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our family of 6.
We very much enjoyed having you as our guests and are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves!!

Great stay in cheticamp
House was in a perfect location and very well equipped. The owner was very responsive to questions at checkin and really appreciated the goodies left in the house at checkin. The only thing that the listing was a bit unclear about was the basement bedroom is only accessible through an un finished staircase and storage room. We really enjoyed our time in cheticamp and at this house.
We had an amazing stay! The property was pristine and well appointed. Proximity to the town and National Park was perfect for our family. As hosts, Karen and David answered all of our questions and ensured our check-in was smooth. And of course, you can't beat the those views. Thank you so much for making our first trip to Cape Breton a memorable one!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed The Beach House and your first trip to Cape Breton was memorable!!
