Why Wendy Tamko chose Hubbards

It was love at first sight when I came to view this property. I knew I had found my dream come true place in Nova Scotia. The chance to live by the ocean was what I had dreamed about. I love the fresh ocean air, and in all my years of living here, I have never tired of waking up to the beautiful view, the sound of the seagulls, and watching the lobster boats coming and going from the wharf near me.

  • 5 of 5

Wendy's rental was absolutely perfect! What a wonderful sweet host she was and WOW what a view of the water. The weather was great and we had a blast checking out Hubbards and the surrounding little fishing towns.

The house was cute as it could be and well maintained.

Wendy was great, I can't give her enough compliments.

I would and have already recommended this property to friends and family

There was a great lobster restaraunt nearby called Ryers and Ryers Lobster.

Overall TOP NOTCH stay!!!!!!!!

Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fish 'N Shells was the perfect spot for enjoying a restful vacation. Two days was not long enough! We enjoyed the quaint space with a fantastic view looking out on the water and fishing boats of many colors. Wendy was a wonderful host and added to the joy of our stay. We look forward to staying again!
