Beautiful Location, Great Cottage, Lovely Owners!
This cottage is a gem! It may be an "ocean view" property but it is on a quiet little street and just steps from the beach. You will be from the cottage door to the beautiful sandy beach in moments! From the front porch I could see my son & husband playing in the waves. The beach at Kye Bay, especially at low tide, has endless stretches of sand bars & lots of cool marine life to explore. We spent hours there daily. For kids, there is a nearby playground just a short walk in one direction & an ice cream stand a short walk in the other. We also found lots of great hikes in the area (Seal Bay, Nymph Falls, Goose Spit, Mount Washington). The cottage itself is clean, spacious & well equipped. There was a good supply of linens and everything we needed in the kitchen. I travelled with my husband, two kids (5 & 7) and in laws and there was lots of space for all of us to both come together & do our own thing. On arrival, we found the main floor a little musty, but with two sets of big patio doors across the front of the cottage to open up, this was resolved in no time. There is a TV with DVD player (bring some DVDs) but not cable or satellite. This was a great disappointment to my husband as our stay was during the Olympics, but a quick trip to town (not too far for all your shopping needs) for an HDMI cable allowed us to stream love coverage from our tablet onto the TV. The upstairs media area became a great hub where the whole family could cheer for Canada after a day at the beach! A little page of information for guests - public access point to beach, fireplace instructions, wifi access, what goes in recycling, etc. would be helpful but the owners were very kind and helpful. They were very easy to reach for any questions. Thoughtful touches like a toiletries kit and buckets & shovels for our kids to use helped make our stay great! I highly recommend this property & would gladly return again! Thanks - Nancy
