- T & D

A most relaxing break from the megacity of Hong Kong. We love the sun, the rain, the sea and, most of all, the quietness. Simply wonderful cottage! Will be back again, God willing!

- Peter & Ada

We have had such a great time here. Our only complaint is that we aren't staying longer! Thank you for your hospitality and friendliness. We so enjoyed our conversations on the beach, you have a beautiful spot here and we are sure you will have much success. Thanks again and we hope to see you next year.

- Paul, Maryellen, Stephen, and family

Thank you so much for creating this beautiful cottage in such a wonderful setting. We enjoyed the peace and sounds of the water. The clamming was great fun and tasted good too! Thanks for the recipe for clams on the BBQ. Cambra Sands was the perfect place for our family to relax and get away from it all. Nova Scotia is a great place! P.S. Jost Vineyard was interesting and the wine is excellent!

- Bill, Vicki, Andrew, Megan, & Ben

We are already planning next summer's vacation here. Beautiful accommodations and gracious hosts - you couldn't ask for more!

- The Kent Family

Our second visit was as amazing as our first and we brought "new" guests. This is truly one of the most relaxing places on earth----thank you for providing it! Can't wait for our 3rd time round.

- K & K

Thank you so much for your warm hospitality, two fabulous weeks, great food, beautiful spots to visit. The cottage was perfect, we cannot wait to see the new one! Thank you to Morgan for sharing her knowledge on sea glass! All the best.

- Chris & Lise

Thanks David and Lesley for your hospitality! We had a great time as before - with such comfortable cottages, the weather isn't as important! We really made use of the hot tub this year and had a great time beachcombing and swimming this year - even got quite close to a seal! We will definitely be back!

- Debra & Christopher

Thank you for a great stay. We really enjoyed everything, from the fantastic view, the long walks on the beach, the sunsets & sunrises, the cozy fireplace, and of course the hot tub! We love it here and can't wait to come back. Thanks!

- Jessica & Nathan

Cambra Sands is an idealistic getaway from the 'rush-rush' attitude of our everyday life. Great spot to just unwind, relax, stroll the beach, and enjoy the hot tub. Facilities are wonderful and all the extra touches are greatly appreciated. A definite place to return to. Perhaps in the winter!

- Debbie, Arsenault & Bonnie

We were looking for a cozy, quiet getaway. We most definitely found it at Cambra Sands. It is so beautiful and peaceful here that it is the perfect spot to "recharge one's batteries". The view from Arabel is absolutely spectacular! We have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. We will definitely return. Thanks so much.

- Graham & Sally & Wally, Windsor

What a perfectly relaxing weekend for our family - just what we all needed. Cottages are fantastic and well the view - amazing! We are lucky to live in such a beautiful province and have folks like you guys to develop tourism accommodations of this caliber. To quote Joecy who is 6 - "I had the best sleep of my entire life". To quote Dylan who is 10, "This place is beautiful - I can't believe it!" Thanks for everything.

- Darlene, Sid, Dylan, and Joecy

What a perfect getaway! We had a great weekend. So relaxing and private. The cottage is beautiful and the little extras make it feel like a home away from home. Thanks.

- Marg & Phil

Your cottages are beautiful and the scenery is lovely. We will never forget our time here, even though it was a short time. We hope to come back again but for a much longer time!

- Steven and Georgina

What a beautiful peaceful spot! The cottage was so comfortable and cozy, we loved the decorating style and layout. We especially enjoyed the beach and our last night swinging on the swing chair and listening to the waves. It was a special 3rd anniversary for us and we will definitely be back for longer next time.

- Melony and Michael

In a province that prides itself on a slower pace and its natural beauty, you have created a true oasis. Found the true meaning of Thanksgiving here. Even with our 7 year old and 6 month old we have left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Thanks! We plan to return.

- Deb, Mark, Meag, & Jane

We really enjoyed our weekend, everything was great. We loved the cottage, the view, kayaking in the bay, and the hot tub. The package with dinner at Jubilee Cottage was perfect. We plan to return soon.

- Paul and Susan

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. The cottage is amazing and so is the scenery. Even the windy walk on the beach was great when we could warm up beside the fireplace. Hope to be back.

- John and Marilyn

Cambra Sands is truly paradise on the Atlantic coast. We have traveled to many places in the world to find a perfect vacation spot that offers peace, tranquility, comfort, and beauty. The cottages at Cambra Sands have it all!

- Gary & Diane

The perfect closing to our vacation in Canada.

- Kornelia and Gerd

From relaxing before our ‘big day’ to spending our first morning as husband and wife. Watching the sunrise and everthing in between, it was amazing.

- Keely and Paul

Had a great time running free, clamming and finding lots of sea treasures – wonderful to laugh and de-stress.

- The Richardson Family

Just one word ‘the hammer’ (Swiss German for brilliant, perfect, wonderful, unbeatable….)

- Julia, Monika and Stefa

Great way to start the New Year – scenery, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing, loved the hot tub.

- Roger and Jeannie

Thank you for the amazing Nova Scotia experience. We will always remember the beautiful setting and the cottage.

- Graham and Sandy

We have been searching for many years for the perfect getaway, and this is definitely it.

- John and Angela

Fantastic stay in a great location!  Beautiful cottage and beach.  Great skiing – beautiful weather! We all had a great time!

- Heather & Ken

Your cottage was a wonderful setting for a wonderful family holiday.  My family enjoyed this stay more than any other trip and that includes a stay in Paris. I was surprised but very pleased.  Thank you for making our stay comfortable and effortless.  We had all that we needed here.  A woman from the prairies who longs to be by the ocean.

- NG

A fabulous new “Happy Place” for us to go when the stress of everyday life gets to us!!  We’ll be back but on a minimum 10 day stay next time. Thanks for the love, laughter and fun.  No need to leave Nova Scotia to have a great vacation!

- Linda, Carole, Barb, Beryl & Sherry

Our second visit to Cambra Sands has been every bit as memorable as the first.  It’s lovely to see this part of the world in winter – the view over the frozen ocean and snow covered lawn is quite a difference to our August visit when we were digging for clams. Such a beautiful, peaceful place to escape, we will be back!

- Halifax, NS

Our family had an amazing time here.  Fantastic view, amazing sand bar, not to mention how nice the beach was. We loved the hot tub!

- The Doucet’s

Had a wonderful visit! Such a warm and inviting cottage. It was so nice to curl up by the fire and watch the snow fall & the ice float by.  If it is this beautiful in winter I can just imagine what it’s like in the summer!

- Amy & Jason

A very welcoming, extremely clean, well decorated and comfortable cottage that offered everything we were looking for in a weekend getaway.  Although the weather was cool, the drive here was beautiful and the walks along the beach were lovely.  We were amazed at the stars here, as they are not nearly as visible in the city.  Great bed and tub!

- Elizabeth & Stuart

Paradise by the ocean...an unforgettable 5 days..survived Hurricane Bill and made beautiful memories.  A perfect honeymoon at Castine cottage.  Same time next year!  Thank you

- M & R

This is the nicest cottage we’ve ever been to.  Beautiful, tastefully decorated, quiet, comfortable and clean (no musty smell) and great service.  We came last year for Thanksgiving weekend, we liked it so much, we came back this year for one week and plan to book 2 weeks next year.

- Danielle & Bob

This is our first visit here, but it won’t be the last.  My husband and I loved the walks on the beach and the peace and tranquility here.  The cottage Castine was beautiful.  I loved the tub.  Thanks for the hospitality.

- Darlene & Harold

Nice, good, wonderful, wow are only a few words that come to mind to describe our weekend.  The view, the beach and this fabulous cottage helped etch a memory and a longing to return.

- Janet & Darrell

“Breathtakingly beautiful with a calm relaxing atmosphere.  Enjoyed the hot tub with the amazing beauty of the full moon.  Loved the comfort of the King size bed and also the warmth and calming feeling of the fireplace was extra special.  Would love to come back again!”
