Island View Cottages
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is by far the worst Spot I have ever stayed at...We had let the owner know we we're planning on staying with them for our honeymoon and when we arrived paying 165 a night we had some expectations, which none were met. It started with a wasps nest on a cottage with no screen for the bugs and when we asked to move I felt like I was a bother, When we arrived at the next cottage we found No BBQ, A rusted out propane tank and a Very unkept Cottage. This was all stuff we could look past and did. The time came for us to go to bed and our sheets were full of hair! With some convincing we stayed and Got up in the morning too towels covered in feces. We did have more minor problems but the Towel was too much, When I asked for a refund I was told WELL YOU SPENT THE NIGHT. Coming from Alberta We LOVE Nova Scotia But these cottages should be shut down.

If you are staying here bring along cleaners. Bathroom/floors/windows not very clean at all. The worst beds we have ever had in a cottage. When someone rolls over in one bedroom you can hear it at the other end of the cottage. Strange squeaking noise everytime you move. Enough to wake you and others up. Bring your own towels, tea towels, knives, potato peeler etc. This is probably the worst equipped cottage we have ever rented. Strange they had two cork screws and no potato peeler.... Stove oven only works when set to 500 d. The one shining light is the pool which was wonderful.

Bottom line tired, old and worn. There are nicer places around for less money!!
