Louise and Colin are passionate AirBnB hosts. Everythin was perfect and we felt like being home.
The breakfast (for us the most important meal of the day) with homemade blueberry-jam was a very good start for the days we stayed and the talks with Colin and Louise were very interesting.
Everything is exactly as described or even better in reality. We liked the huge house and our big room / bathroom and how clean everything is, and last but not least the very comfortable bed.
Louise and Colin gave us very good recommondations what to do and where to eat.
For sure we'd like to stay again with Louise and Colin!
This was our very first AirBnB experience and Louise and Colin turned us into more than believers! They both were very hospitable, super interesting and easy-going hosts who spoiled us with home made granola in the morning, excellent advice about everything Nova Scotia (and we happened to be so extremely lucky to get invited to a homemade dinner in their dining room).
We felt like part of the family instantly and were invited to use the whole house, not only 'our' room and bathroom. Expect to experience homegrown veggies, homemade bread and granola, a choice of filter-, french press- or espresso coffee as well as tea both in the kitchen and in your bedroom.
The house and its location is exactly like the other reviews stated: Breathtaking, clean, off the beaten track but centrally located near Peggy's Cove. Both the private bathroom and the bedroom are spacious and (together with your own balcony) overlooking St. Margaret's bay. There was even a Swiss chocolate truffle to be found on our towel, and the bed was just right.
The best part of our time with Louise and Colin was having met warm, sophisticated and curious people who love to make you feel like you are family from the minute you arrive, even if our initial scheduled arrival time was after midnight (!).
First, you book this one just because the description and the pictures looks amazing and everything it's 300% accurate. Then, it gets better! Louise and Collin really made me feel like at home (was even better ;).
They are the most welcoming host you can imagine.
They were genuinely interested in helping to make my visit a good one. It's clear that they love the woods ;) and were always willing to answer questions and provide suggestions concerning places to visit and restaurants to try or hike to do etc... Additionally, they have done quite a nice job decorating their home. The result is that it's warm, inviting, interesting, and creative. You can not compete with the view as soon as you wake up or take your shower!
Based on my experience, I highly recommend Louise and Collin's place.
Wow thanks Margaux - its all mutual! Can't wait to meet the rest of your family! Have a good summer!
Fantastic experience! Louise and Colin were lovely and welcoming hosts who went out of their way to make my stay comfortable—from rescuing me when my rental car was stuck at the bottom of the driveway to offering delicious home cooked meals during my stay. The home and, especially, the bedroom were very cozy during my winter stay and boast an incredible view. The pictures don’t quite do the place justice. I’d love to return someday and would definitely recommend. Great conversation, delicious food, and a breathtaking view!
I had an excellent experience staying with Louise and Colin. They are extremely hospitable and made me feel at home. The room has a breathtaking view of the woods and the bay. Room was very comfortable and Louise had gone an extra step to add certain things like tea in the room. The homemade breakfast was delicious and they were gracious to invite me for supper as well. They also gave me suggestions as to what all to do and where all to go in Halifax. I definitely recommend and would love to go back. They are definitely super hosts!
Thanks, Archi that's kind of you. It was fun having you visit.
Louise and Colin were gracious hosts and we felt extremely welcome in their home. The house and overall feel of the environment exceeded our expectations. Everything was described accurately except that the pictures definitely did not portray the real beauty of the house and property. We knew it would be beautiful, but were stunned by the actual views. The neighborhood was quiet, remote and safe. Our visit was short but worth every minute. Louise was kind enough to allow us such a short visit and take us on a beautiful hike around the area. Would highly recommend. A gorgeous, hidden place with wonderful hosts.
We had such a great time staying with Louise and Colin. They were so helpful with our plans throughout our stay of places to eat and places to see. They made us feel so at home and comfortable from the moment we got there. Breakfast was amazing with homemade bread, granola and jams. The room was very clean and the bed is very comfortable. The views from the room are absolutely breath taking and a wonderful way to wake up in the morning. They were so kind as to invite us to join a party they were having with their friends and it turned out to be such a great night. We had lovely conversation with both of them. They truly are genuine and wonderfully kind people. We will definitely be back!
Thanks, Mike. It was great having you both here and delightful to be part of the birthday surprise.
We had such a great experience staying with Louise and Colin. You will find yourself in an idyllic setting with warm, welcoming hosts. The room has the most incredible views and you are within reasonable distances for great sights. Louise and Colin have great suggestions for what to do and see. We will be back for sure!
Louise and Colin were phenomenal hosts, and their home was exactly as promised and more. When we first arrived, Colin gave us a tour of the beautiful space we would be staying in, and a tour of the rest of the house-- and he made clear that we were welcome to join them downstairs and make ourselves at home.
The room they provided has an amazing view of St. Margaret's Bay, and both the room and the bathroom were very comfortable and clean. They were kind enough to provide breakfast every morning, plus a few other refreshments in the evenings after long days of hiking and sightseeing. And it was very nice to come home to their dog and their cat, who were each a lot of fun.
Our trip was short (three nights), so we didn't have a chance to really make the most of their hospitality. But we did get to spend some time with them, and they were friendly and very helpful.
Their home (at the top of an intimidating-- but definitely manageable-- hill) is in a beautiful area about a half-hour drive from downtown Halifax. Colin and Louise provided us with recommendations for food and destinations to visit and to avoid, which made for a very enjoyable trip. (The highlight was probably a hike on our last day at Duncan's Cove, including seeing the sun-bathing seals that Louise "guaranteed" would be there.)
Everything about our trip surpassed our expectations, in large part thanks to our hosts' hospitality and local knowledge.
During our stay with Colin and Louise in their breathtaking home, Louise informed us that they had been awarded by airbnb as superhosts: and that they truly are. When we arrived at their location, Louise personally came out to welcome us and showed us where to park. Louise and Colin were proactive and quick to make us feel at home.
The room offered a breathtaking view of St. Margaret's Bay, and gives you a feeling of being remote. In fact, their house is in a convenient location, and close to all amenities, as well as being close to Halifax and attractions such as Peggy's Cove. Colin and Louise's suggestions of local eateries, bookstores and other hidden gems were some of our best experiences during our travels in Nova Scotia.
Louise and Colin were always explicit that their home was our home during our stay. The breakfast that they served every morning was absolutely delicious, with homemade bread, granola and marmalade. We were privileged to experience their hospitality when Colin and Louise offered to share their dinner and their evening with us. We were so touched by their kindness and hospitality. Truly a home away from home!
Louise, was a very good guest. She is friendly, sociable person, I really enjoyed to host her and will be glad to host her again.
Louise and her son, Josh, stayed four nights in my space, The Cocoon Room. Louise is a superhost in Nova Scotia, and a bit of a superguest. Friendly, charismatic, independent, and tidy, it was a pleasure to host her and I hope to stay at her space in Nova Scotia one day too.
Louise and Colin were wonderful guests! They were friendly and easygoing, I really enjoyed talking with them. I would definitely recommend them as guests!
