Everything was perfect - the view of the ocean was fabulous! The cottage (Arabel) was located right on the ocean and was just the nicest, most comfortable cottage we've stayed in. We ate well, slept sound and came back from our weekend ready (sort of ) to face the rest of winter!

What a beautiful peaceful place to spend a quiet weekend away. The cottages at Cambra Sands are situated one the Northumberland Strait in Nova Scotia and even in winter, staying there was magic. The cottage we occupied, Arabel, was perfect. Well equipped and very very cozy. Fireplace was such a pleasure as was the hot tub ..mmmm.. on a cold winter's night under the stars...and ooooo the stars..brilliant...
You are just minutes away from Jost Winery(another mmmmmm ...*s*) We plan to go back in the summer to enjoy the summer's warmth and the long stretch of beach. Oh and the sunset...magic...*S*....

Much thanks to all at the "Sands"...a lil' piece of heaven you have there.

The website doesn't do the cottages justice - they are beautiful. Lovely decor, high quality furniture, tv, shower. They contain everything you need. The outdoor hot tub was a real treat in the winter. We can't wait to go back in the summer as the beach looks like it will be wonderful for our young children.

We spent a lovely night at Cambra Sands this past weekend. The cottage was beautifully appointed, new, clean, and comfortable. The propane fireplace was a nice touch, and kept us cozy after our snowy moonlight stroll to the hot tub. The kitchen had nice new appliances and we were able to do up our dishes in the dishwasher before leaving. There was a laundry service across from our cottage which would be incredibly handy during a longer stay or in the summer.
These cottages have a spectacular view and the property is quiet and easy to find. The proximity to the winery (Jost) was perfect and we spent some time there tasting some great wines.
The linens were of excellent quality, and the bed was extremely comfortable.
This property had close to everything we would have wanted. The sattelite service was really just basic cable choices, and wireless internet would have been great. We had brought fixings for a stir fry and found no fry pan, and there was no dish cloth, but we assumed that these were simply overlooked in preparing the cottage.
Overall, we would highly recommend this property for couples or families, and look forward to returning in the summer for another getaway!

Relaxed. Beautiful. Memorable. Three years of staying with our friends at Cambra Sands, three small words. We have never been to a resort that offers such a relaxing venue from check in to check out, outstanding facilities which lead to our ultimate memories.

Thank you Cambra Sands! See you next year.

Cambra Sands was beautiful! We really enjoyed all of the comforts and luxuries the cottage offered, like the large tub, propane fireplace, and amazingly comfortable beds - I slept like a rock! It was so wonderful to enjoy a romantic getaway with all of the privacy, and without being bothered. We'd definitely love to go back at a time when the weather is warmer.
