Guest Testimonials

Beach Heaven is a very modern, well-appointed property with beautiful views and quick access to a lovely beach. The hot tub and saunas are nice bonuses too! The kitchen is well-equipped making meal prep a breeze.
The location is ideal for day trips to different areas on Nova Scotia's south shore, and is handy to a number of parks and bird sanctuary areas.

 Sea Star Cottage is a roomy and spacious home, delightful for a family stay. The internet connection is superior. The shorefront is rocky and while you can't walk it to Carters Beach, the beach is a short drive down the road. It's also an easy walk, if you aren't carrying 'beach supplies'. Carters Beach is truly a gem and the tidal pools warm enough to wade in. While, there is a barbecue it is one of those small, portable Coleman's, that uses small canisters - not a full-size barbecue. Overall, a delightful location and cottage.

A quiet day on the beach
A Lobster Fishing boat cruises by Carter's Beach in Port Mouton Nova Scotia


One of the nicest beach in the Liverpool area, Carter's beach is actually three beaches in one - all the beaches have slightly different orientations, so it is always possible to find a sunny spot out of the wind.  The first beach you come to is a gentle crescent beach that is fairly shallow.  It is boarded by sand dunes along the back.  The next beach is a little rougher - it has a river that runs through it that is tidal.  It is much easier to cross at low tide when it is about ankle deep that at high tide when it is waist deep.  It is not a problem, but is definitely something to watch.  When we went to the beach with our children (1 and 4) we played a lot in this river at low tide as the water was warmer and there were no waves.  We love this beach.

John and I went to Carter's beach on Canada Day in 2001. We were amazed. It looked like we had traveled thousands of miles to the Caribbean - the sand was white and the water turquoise. The illusion was broken when we dipped our toes into the ocean and realized that yes we were still in Canada! The water was not freezing, but it definitely was not tropical!


Sea Star Cottage and Harbour Tide House in Port Mouton are the closest cottages to this beach.
