Guest Testimonials

Nestled in a beautiful location and only a short walk from Carter's beach (which looks almost tropical). Sea Star Cottage is perfect for honeymooners or a large family. Would definitely recommend it for a relaxing and refreshing vacation!

Great accommodations
We stayed at this wonderful place for a week and made beautiful memories! We found this Castaway Ocean Lodge surfing the web and the service we received from Sandy Lane Vacations was great. It was a memorable moment when we drove up the lane and saw the cottage for the first time with the ocean as it's background…it truly was a jaw dropping moment for us all. What a treat…this cottage has all the conveniences of a home away from home and then some. We really enjoyed the hot tub and fireplace at the end of the day, it was great to be able to relax after long hikes. The location is perfect for nature lovers and the peaceful surroundings soothes the nerves, thus it was with much regret we had to pack up and head back home. Really enjoyed our stay and definitely worthy of a return trip in the near future.
We had a wonderful stay at Neptunes Rise. The location and house are even better in person. The house was very clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. It is perfectly located and close to many beaches. We were thrilled by how private the property was. We really enjoyed morning coffees on the deck looking at the water. We had our 2 year old daughter with us and the house was very well equipped for her. That was a lovely surprise. We would highly recommend staying here and look forward to going back!

Our last day at the cottage how the time has flown! We know of the village of West Green Harbor, smells of the sea, cries of the sea gulls, the lobster pots drying in the sun, the bold colours of the lupins swaying along the road, the gentle breeze fades into the distance as we fly home - we leave with fond memories of the soft rhythm of life in Nova Scotia.  The house and location is tranquil, restful and easy on the soul. We end this journey with a smile and leave a little of ourselves behind.

Louis Head Beach

Shimmering sand and clear waters.

Sun, sand and sea ... what more could a kid need?


Louis Head Beach is one of our favourite beaches.  It is a glorious golden crescent beach that stretches for over 2 miles. The sandy beach and protected cove make it an ideal launching area for kayaking.

Home to the endangered Piping Plover, dogs should be leashed during the nesting and hatching season in late June and early July. 


The nearest cottage to this beach is:
Sanderling Beach House - this cottage is right on the beach
To get to the beach take Exit 23, HWY 103 continue along this road until you come to a fork in the road.  Take the left fork following signs to Louis Head Beach and Little Harbour.  Turn left on to Ferry West Road.  The beach is at the end of the road.
