The property has a beautiful location right on the beach but has no parking for suite guests - you have to park in front of the lodge, unload your luggage & take it up to your suite then move your vehicle back to the upper parking lot. The flagstone walkway has lamp posts along the path to the parking lot but for some reason they were not working or not turned on making it hard to see at night. The website doesn't tell you that there is construction and/or repairs going on so be advised that large areas are fenced off. They do have a very nice reception area in the main office & all of the staff were very friendly & helpful. Breakfast is buffet style with a good selection but you have to get there early as the eating area was very cool - about 15 C & the hot food items were barely warm by 8:30 AM. Now for the "Suite" level accommodations - When you are paying upwards of $300 for "Suite" level lodging it is reasonably expected that they be maintained to a higher standard than say a roadside budget motel. The location of our suite had a wonderful view of the beach & I'm confident when they were first completed they were quite nice. This was not the case wherein our suite was in dire need of some major renovations & repairs! The pictures speak for themselves. We had privacy blinds that didn't work, leaking kitchen taps, broken bathroom shelving, very worn out kitchen counters & major mold & mildew issues at the main entrance. This stay was to celebrate a landmark anniversary but sadly it was the most disappointing accommodations we have ever stayed in at this price level. Think twice about booking any "suites" until a major repair & clean-up takes place.

Hello Robert, Thank you very much for staying with us at Oceanstone, and for providing feedback on your experience. While I am disappointed to learn that your accommodation didn't live up to your expectations, I am pleased that you did enjoy our terrific seaside location, the friendly and helpful service, our main lodge facilities and the selection at breakfast. Our beautiful waterfront exposure does mean constant maintenance and upkeep to the exterior of our buildings, but I am surprised by your impression of the interior. The suite you were in is typically a guest favorite, and was upgraded just last winter. Actually, the last review of that particular unit on Tripadvisor deemed it a "luxurious and relaxing ocean side retreat", and touched on many of the recent upgrades to include bed quality, huge soaker tub, skylights and full kitchen. I apologize that was not your experience, and will certainly have our maintenance team give the suite a thorough going over. As you can clearly tell if you read our previous reviews, we take our service levels and product quality very seriously - and feedback like this is very unusual. It is unfortunate that it was not what your were expecting, but I do hope that you had a happy anniversary and wish you many more to come. Happy Holidays, Robert

We recently checked into this resort area. Such a beautiful place to stay at. Staff members were extremely nice, very helpful, and it was obvious they care about customer service! We stayed in Rhubarb room # 5, which was very nice, cozy, comfortable bed. The only disadvantage really was that the restaurant downstairs is open until 9-10pm ish, and its somewhat loud. When the customers were all gone, they crank the music for cleaning time (I get it, I do the same thing at home). Other than that, no issues at all!

Typically when a place exceeds all of your expectations, time seems to pass too quickly. The wonderful energy and ambience of Oceanstone has a magical effect that seems to slow your mind, body and spirit down..so that you can truly see, hear and feel this special haven. We were blessed to stay 2 nights in #3. Swing the big comfy chair around to face the sea and feel the fresh air of the sea and the warmth of the coastal sun. Thank you for a wonderful welcome and a cleansing and regenerative visit. We really enjoyed the wine. A perfect (COVID delayed) honeymoon :) See you next time.

I absolutely recommend Oceanstone for anyone that wants a taste of Nova Scotia! First of all we received great assistance thru the booking process! Upon arrival we were impressed with the cottages/cabins and rooms spread out on a beautiful footprint! Unfortunately we could only stay 1 night at the Periwinkle Cottage! It was a 2 bedroom with a pullout couch! Beautiful rustic feel with big deck looking right on the ocean! Had a little private beach with chairs and a man made fire pit! Also, as luck would have it , the Blunose 2 was sailing by and it was a perfect sight! We preordered food that was prepped BBQ ready! It was a burger/sausage/hotdog combo with potato & macaroni salad plus marinaded asparagus & peppers! Everything was top notch! We had perfect weather and had a fire after supper! I thought we had run out of wood so dashed up to office and was going to take some of theirs! I was told to relax and that he would bring us out a wheelbarrow full! I then noticed some wood at our front door that I had not noticed! I apologized to him for wasting his time! He laughed it off and brought us a second wheelbarrow full! Thank you “Murito for your help and understanding! We used all the wood! Breakfast the next morning was a nice combination of hot & cold foods! Plus great coffee! Highly recommend Oceanstone to everyone!

We stayed in the Hollyhock and it was a great size & comfortable. Small kitchen and dining table. Soft bed. Even had a soaker tub. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. Not a great variety but tasty nonetheless. All the staff are so friendly and great. There’s a fire pit outdoors to enjoy and a small beach with some chairs to watch the sunset. Rhubarb restaurant is on site and excellent. Only lost a star because there was no water at the resort in the morning.

Thank you for sharing this feedback on your recent stay at Oceanstone, we truly appreciate it! I am so pleased to read that you enjoyed your accommodations, the food, and our wonderful team - but do want to apologize for the brief interruption to our water service on the morning of your departure. It is certainly not the final impression that we would like to make. I hope that the rest of your memories about Oceanstone are positive, and that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back again in the future. Enjoy the rest of your summer! Robert
