Just what we were hoping for an more! Bluenose house was bright, clean and had a stunning view of the water. Nothing beats an early morning cup of coffee and watching the fog roll out. We even saw a pair of dolphins cruising the river! Loved our time there, very peaceful. :)

We were in Yellownose, built the same way as bluenose, 100m away and out of sight. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, the views over the river, the private beach (pebbles), swimming in the waters at the junction of river and sea. The house is very comfortable, good protected against insects, the terrace is beautiful. Good starting point for trips...

Management response:

The Cabot Trail roundtrip is 300 km plus 100 km (75 Min drive) to the trail entrance. POI see here: http://goo.gl/maps/k7JK

We spent two weeks at the Bluenose and we felt at home from the first moment. The house is very clean, well-equipped and has an amazing view over the ocean. It's the perfect location for any watersports lover as the bay is protected by a couple of islands. We even saw whales while paddling in our kayak.

About the neighbourhood
The houses offers excellent living conditions for every season. In winter, it is especially cozy to sit by the fireplace, enjoying the warmth, and gazing out across the water. We offer every watersports activities from kayaking to hobie 16 catamaran sailing, Hobie Islnad Adventure Paddle/Sailing Trimaran up to 38 foot Catamaran with kojies for accomodation of 6 people for day cruising or longer.

We're often asked about mosquitoes. The seaside breeze drives the pesky beasts away. It is also to be noted that all houses have the luxury of window screens and sliding screen doors that can be closed. In the summer, the temperatures vary between 20-28 degrees Celsius in the day, and 12-14 degrees during the night. Near the coast, the wind can get a little brisk, so it is recommended to ta...
