We rolled in around 4:00 and search for the office. There isn't one. The doors weren't locked. There was no one to be found. We drove down to the beach and hung around the little harbour, then went back to the house. No one around. So we unloaded our stuff and, locked our room's door, and went to dinner. When...

I have decided to swallow my pride and respond to every review from this season ... the good ones and the bad ones! We have to remember that most visitors expect something before they get to their chosen locations, sites and/or events. When that expectation is confused or blurred, problems arise. This year, more than other years, I created a...

We arrived Highland Breeze at 4pm but nobody was there, doors not locked. One hour later the same. We asked in the shop and searched on the Gulf Breeze for the owner, he arrived just by car. We've booked and confirmate the Grand Anse room, but he would give us the Noth Cottage. This Bungalow was not warm, musty, unfriendly...

To answer your question... I am not sure how I let my beautiful Highland Breeze take such a hit in such a short period of time. I must accept full responsibility and apologise to you for your unhappiness and for not feeling like you got what you expected. I am unsure if your words are directed towards the cottage because...

Four of us arrived around 5.00pm with confirmed reservations. The place was open but unattended and we had to go looking for the owner at another property. Eventually we were let in to our allocated rooms but had to still wait while the rooms were being cleaned at 6.00 pm. Then the next day another couple arrived, so the B...

This is my third and final response for today. I will respond to three more tomorrow. This one is a little more insulting than critical --- but humour is a way for people to use mean words sometimes. If you have read my first two responses from today's date... it will have covered that yes... people from all over wanted...

We had a reservation to stay at the Harbour Breeze Cottage and when we arrived, the cottage was in the beginnings of a major renovation with scaffolding everywhere. The owner never called or emailed us and didn't apologize when we arrived for our reservation. We have never had such a poor experience before in our lives. Warning...don't count on this...

Good Evening! This is day 2 of my TripAdvisor accountability exercise. And I will say that it is a task that is heartfelt and introspective. Many will question why I am not letting sleeping dogs lie and/or why I did not respond at the time... or more importantly.. why these events occurred in the first place. In one thought... you...

Even thinking about this experience to write this review makes me upset but I don't want someone to go through what we did. After a morning of hiking, we arrive at the B&B around 2:45 in the afternoon. There was no one there. We looked around the property hoping to see someone but nothing. After waiting for a good 40...

This will be the hardest one to respond too. So what I will do is keep it as brief as I can because I think that sometimes its best to agree to disagree and let it go. I am grateful that the review was somewhat tamer than the experience and both our real life responses. I was not there but...

Thank you for your lovely comments. Pleasant Bay does have a lot to offer - especially since we are located 1/2 way around the trail. You are right, we do not have a full fledged grocery store but Winnie brings in quite a bit of stock in the summer and she is experimenting by trying to bring in fresh fruit...
