“Heavenly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

The weather was great, the cottage was heavenly...it was very clean and everything we needed was at our fingertips. The ocean was a stones throw away...a fire pit provided us with a wonderful crackling bonfire that we shared with people in the other cottages...and shared stories and laughs under a moon and star filled sky...then more people showed up and treated us to a fireworks show! As the old saying goes...strangers are just friends we haven't met yet...if you're looking for a quiet place to share with family and friends, or a place to just treat and pamper yourself ... Check it out...you won't be disappointed !!

Room Tip: Every cottage is straddled, giving every one of them a view of the ocean...

Are the 3 best words to describe Cambra Sands. A little piece of heaven. A place where you can go if your a professional and enjoy peace and quiet. Get a lot of work done, relax by the fireplace and look out at the sea and hear the ocean. If you have to work...then why not do it in a peaceful place. Get away from the noise of the city, the phone calls and people interrupting you. Pack it all into the car and take a bottle of wine and in 1.5 hours your relaxed! .....your mind unwinds and you begin to "think" and be " creative". It's amazing.

Room Tip: oh....and bring your bathing suit to enjoy the "outdoor hot tub" !

We had a great time...weather didn't participate but it is a beautiful spot and would and have recommended it to our family and friends. Lots of fun fishing even in the rain.
We would like to book again for next year for a short stay if possible.
The cottage was clean and an open concept...the only thing I would have done differently when building it was have a bedroom on the water side :)

This was our first visit to Cambra Sands, and we were very pleased with our stay. We stayed in the Feronia, which was one of the larger cottages. With its three bedrooms and two bathrooms there was plenty of room for our own family (two adults and two children), plus grandparents. The cottage was clean, well maintained and well equipped. We loved walking on the mudflats at low tide, and swimming at high tide (bring water shoes for this). We enjoyed the bonfires in the evening, and the kids loved meeting new friends from the neighbouring cottages and playing on the play structure. Cambra Sands offers a relaxed, peaceful environment for a great family vacation.

This is my second visit to Cambra Sands and each time it's been a perfect place for a group of friends to get together and get away from the city to relax. The cottages are clean and include everything that you need. We stayed in the Aurora cottage this time and there was more then enough space to relax and lounge around. We especially loved the outside picnic bench that is surrounded by grape vines as a place to eat breakfast and lunch. The hot tub is a great touch and we spent each evening by the bonfire. What a lovely relaxing weekend!!

The cottage was a perfect place to spend the first few nights of our honeymoon. Modern clean and peaceful. the sunset was beautiful and the beach was excellent for a stroll but Not a beach for swimming. The outdoor hot tub was clean and private.

Friends from different corners of the world descended upon Cambra Sands and fell in love with the place (though from my previous experience there I would have been surprised if they didn't). We would have loved to have stayed a bit longer and even a couple of days later while in Halifax, we were lamenting the fact that we weren't still there. Can't wait to again and already my friends from New York are planning a return visit!
