Cliff Waters Vacation Properties, Secluded

Pleasant Bay cottage

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“Can't imagine a better accommodation for a visit to Cape Breton” From our first contact with owner, Niki Pike, regarding reservations to the moment we said goodby to Cliff Waters the experience was nothing short of sensational. Prior to our trip Niki provided us with a great overview of her beautiful part of the world including recommendations on exciting hikes, whale tours, sea kayaking, and local dining. Her advise was spot on. We knew immediately upon arriving that Cliff Waters was going to be a special place to use as a base for our week on Cape Breton Island. As we drove along the roadway approaching the cottage for the first time we noticed a pod of pilot whales feeding just off shore. Arriving just before sunset we spent the first hour of our stay sitting on the front porch watching and listening (yes the whales were that close) as the whales put on a private show just for us. The amazing sunset over the ocean that we marveled at that evening was just the first of what became a daily ritual. The cottage was everything we had hoped for. There was plenty of room in the open floor plan for my wife and I along with our daughter. The sleeping loft provides a great place for a third or fourth person. The full kitchen had everything we needed to prepare wonderful meals of local seafood. We found the cottage clean and well furnished with everything we needed for our stay. I must admit that before our visit we had some concerns about the remote location of Cliff Waters. It is in fact "off the beaten path" in a very isolated yet easily accessible area. Our concerns were unfounded. The isolation translated into privacy. With not another home in sight we felt as though we had the whole island to ourselves, yet, within a short drive along the Cabot Trail we discovered a wonderful world of natural beauty and adventure. Each evening, after a day of exploring the island, we returned to our wonderful Cliff Waters Cottage for the whale show and unforgettable sunset. Can't imagine a better vacation experience.

“the perfect get-away from loud and busy lives to take a break” I spent there just a couple of days three years ago but I was immediately in love with this place and came home feeling like I had been on a long-term vacation. Coming from a hectic life near Manhattan, I truly enjoyed being far away, embraced by open views to the gorgeous bay and nothing else but peace and quiet and nature. The house is modern, wide and open but yet warm and cozy in style. Waking up in the morning and seeing the glistening bay from your bed, taking a walk on the beach (refreshingly empty compared to NJ beaches!), having a drink in the afternoon on the porch while relaxing and admiring the sun set, eating lobsters in town, just wonderful. I am only sorry the golf course was not yet there; however, that's just another reason for me to come back.

Hubbards/Halifax Oceanfront Home in Nova Scotia

Hubbards house

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Comfortable Home and Beautiful View” Our family of six spent a week in this home in early October. We enjoyed grilling out on the deck, canoeing, fishing, relaxing in the hammock and just taking in the beautiful view. We took day trips to Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, Lunenberg and Halifax. The Saturday Farmer's Market, a small grocery store and drugstore was only a short walk from the house. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the utensils and cookware we needed to prepare meals. There was even a large pot that we used to cook lobster one night. We would have liked to have a larger coffee pot, as the one available only made a few cups at a time. There were several games, books, magazines and a deck of cards to keep us entertained. It was very convenient to have a washer and dryer on hand since we had packed light for the trip. We would have liked to have wireless Internet access, but the Internet stick for our laptop worked well. Overall, it was a comfortable, cozy home to stay for our first visit to Nova Scotia.

“A fabuluous two week getaway” We had a fabuluous two week vacation. It was a shot in the dark because we had no prior information on the site other than what was provided. We were not disappointed. The cottage is large and comfortable. It has a well equipped kitchen and the furnishings are top knotch. The site is somewhat seculded that gives privacy with access to the ocean and a very good view. There is an excellent protected bay for kayaking and a good hot tub to relax in after a day on the water.

“canada's best beach” The beach at Bayfield is fabulous. The water is shallow with sandbars. It's perfect for children. There's all you could ask; fishing boats at the wharf, an island with a lighthouse and miles of sand to walk or just lie on. The cottage is comfortable, family-friendly and very private. What a spot!
