You know that moment, when you first set eyes on the vacation rental that you booked months ago, and realize it is even better than you hoped it would be? That was exactly our experience pulling up to Sunfish cottage, and walking through the door into a beautiful, peaceful place that was to be our home for the next week.

The cottage is small, but spacious at the same time, and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Clean, open, and tastefully decorated, and Sally's little touches, like the vases of wild flowers, made it feel like home.

The "dubious" gravel road leading to the cottage was a bit of an adventure, but so much better than being located off a main road. Private, quiet, the perfect retreat.

After a week of watching seals play in the bay, spying eagles soaring overhead, watching the tides, and listening to waves, we were reluctant to leave, and can't wait to return!

Sally is lovely to deal with, she is very quick to respond to any communications and is super helpful with suggestions about the local area. By far the best part of Sunfish is the view - it is fantastic!!! We stayed at Sunfish at the beginning of June. It was very private and we were able to see a great range of wildlife. The gravel road to the cottage (2kms) is really quite rough (Sally had warned us ahead of time) so it limited the number of times we wanted to go in and out to explore the surrounding area. But with views that were so terrific we didn't mind staying at the cottage more than we had initially planned. It is truly a lovely spot!

Beautiful views of rocky shoreline are the highlights of this location. A nature lovers paradise. It was great to see seals, water fowl and bald eagles. This location had the best views on the island. The cottage is roomier than the pictures show. The kitchen is well-equipped and the bed is comfortable. Within an hour, you are close to many of the South Store's famous attractions. Peggy's Cove and the Hubbards Barn farmer's market on Saturday were highlights for us. We already want to go back.

A lovely place to get away and relax. Cottage was very clean. Had nightly visits from two seals. Close to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. We were able to visit all. Although there was a TV with limited channels we didn't turn it on the view was too beautiful and much better than anything on TV.

Second year in a row & just as great a time. Comfortable well equipped cottage right on the ocean. Watch sea life from the rocks & enjoyed bbq on the deck overlooking the cove. From Halifax to Peggys Cove all sightseeing in the area are an easy drive. Sally is great to deal with always easy to contact.
