We (2 people) stayed in Ben's house for 3 nights at the end of September.
The house is just like the photos, in an idyllic area about 2 minutes drive to the beach where you can go kayaking around the Fishing Islands! The house we found to be extremely quiet. You aren't completely isolated, but there are lots of trees between the houses in the neighbourhood. The kitchen is one of the best equipped kitchens we have ever had from airbnb! Ben and his family actually use the house and I'm guessing they like cooking because the equipment is good quality and lots of it. The washing machine and dryer are also in the kitchen. There is a large dining table which you can't see in the pictures. The bathroom has a strong shower over a bath. The bedroom has a big comfy bed, however, you are normally expected to bring your own bedding. We had come from Europe and Ben kindly provided us with bedding and towels for our stay as well as some beach towels which was really appreciated. The living room sofa is really comfy and blankets to snuggle under were also provided. There is also another bedroom which has bunk beds. The house was very quick to warm up with the heating and was clean. We didn't stay long enough to use them but there are a camp fire pit and a barbecue available to guests. Even though the house doesn't have an internet connection we did manage to get patchy 3G coverage on Bell at the house and in the area.
Ben is such a great guy, and very friendly, he was also easily contactable. He gave us lots of information beforehand on kayaking around the area and we chose to go around the fishing islands - we are newbies but found the Fishing Islands to be easy and fun to explore! He really went out of his way to ensure we had a great stay. The location of this house is fantastic for exploring the area and you can easily do Flowerpot Island and Tobermory as a day trip. We loved staying here and had such a fab time and wished we had scheduled a longer stay! We will definitely stay here again.
Fantastic place! Loved the space and the location. We had a great stay, Ben was super easy to get ahold of and left all instructions and information out very clearly. Great deal will defiantly come back at some point. Clean. Comfortable. Great Time.
This is by far the best Airbnb place we've ever stayed at. It's a great, clean and beautifully decorated cottage. It has everything you need going from kitchen supplies to a washing machine and dryer and a DVD-player, Xbox, books, etc. There are also bikes available. The area is wonderful as well. The cottage is about 15 minutes walking from the lake in Oliphant. We did not meet the owner (since he lives in Toronto) but did have very good contacts with him. He gave us lots of information about the area, which is also available at the cottage. I hope we get to go a second time.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Benjamin's cottage is a true treasure! The cottage has everything you would need to enjoy the beach life. The house easily fits two couples or a family of four. Benjamin was a great host and ensured we had everything we needed for a successful weekend at his home. It is located a short bike ride away from Oliphant beach and short drive to Sauble beach (highly recommend!!) I look forward to staying here again soon!
