Incredible Stay!

  • 5 of 5

From our first communication, Cheryl was very quick to respond and super friendly. She knew our flight would be arriving late and offered to pick us up any provisions we would need to tide us over until we could go shopping. We took her up and asked for coffee :) After a long trip (and a cancelled flight, having us arrive 2 days later) we were exhausted. We pulled up in the driveway and were overcome with the view and back patio. The photos do NOT do this cottage justice! We walked inside and immediately loved the inside. So very clean, spacious and had everything we could need. All dishes, plates, wine glasses, huge refrigerator and all cookware. Bathroom had loads of towels and washing machine and dryer. Amazing bay views from upstairs living room and master bedroom. This was the most relaxing vacation we have had in a long time. The proximity to 'day trips' was also ideal. One day Halifax, then Lunenberg, wine region, whale watching. Coming back to the cottage at night and being able to sit on that wonderful patio with a fire and a glass of wine was just the thing we needed in our lives! Thank you so much Cheryl, for sharing your cottage with others so we may enjoy. We had a fantastic vacation and bragging rights when showing others our photos!

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

This being our first time to Nova Scotia, we had to play it by ear while checking out vrbo rentals. Cheryl's cottage on the ocean is certainly a hidden gem. It is in a perfect central location in Hubbards to explore the South Shore from Halifax to Liverpool and further if you have the time. The huge deck is a perfect spot to enjoy the sunrises, relax with coffee in the morning , bbqing, drinks at nights or a marshmallow roast in fire pit. The cottage is perfect & has everything you need with a fully equipped kitchen. Thanks Cheryl for your warm hospitality and sharing your beautiful place. We will certainly pass the word about this perfect spot. Hubbards has a great farmers market on Saturdays, Trellis cafe for freshly made lunches, close to Hwy 103 which gets you to Halifax or down the coast fast but you must take hwy 3 along the coast especially to Chester, Mahone Bay & Lunenburg.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a great review, I suppose that you are writing this review 6 months later is evidence that you had a great time. You were such great guests and I hope you keep me in mind next time you visit. One of the great things about having a vacation rental is meeting such nice and respectful people like you. Again thank you for the respect you have and I look forward to seeing you again.

The place was perfect! It was spotless and looked new. My husband and I enjoyed the open concept main floor. It had more than the comforts of home. The deck was incredible, huge, and right on the ocean. Wow what a view! We enjoyed the water as it changed through the day, the evening stars, the mist in the morning. It was a great location. A small town, friendly people close to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg etc. We would take day trips and come back to the peace and quiet of this beautiful place. Cheryl was super nice , made us feel right at home. We highly recommend this place.

Beautiful View and clean and comfortable inside

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful spot right on the ocean, we couldn't have asked for a better view. Everything looks new and spotlessly clean inside! It's a great location as well. In a cute little town with friendly people and great beaches and only a short drive to Halifax, Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove....etc. the owner, Cheryl, was also great at answering questions when needed and very helpful! A great place, highly recommended!
