We spent a week at this most amazing and beautiful cottage. Everything is tastefully decorated and comfortable. All questions we had for the owner were answered quickly, in fact questions were encouraged to make our stay memorable. The beach was beautiful and is close as are a number of lovely restaurants. We will definitely book this cottage again. We have been renting cottages for 15 years and this was by far the best . Even our teenage grandkids want to return next year.

The Sunshine Cottage could not have been better suited for us. It had everything we needed, the place was clean and gorgeously laid out. The location was perfect, 2 minutes to the beach and 5-10 to some great restaurants. Anca was very accommodating, she always answered texts or emails quickly and helped sort out any issues we had. We will absolutely be back again!

We had the best time on our one week getaway at Sunshine Cottage. The Cottage was such a breath of fresh air! Clean fresh and airy. Anca was such a pleasure to deal with! We will defiantly refer others to say here and book again ourselves. Crystal beach is the perfect place families for children. Clean water and very calm. Can't wait to go back! Thanks, The Fernandes Famiky

Thank you for the opportunity of renting your home for a week in September, 2016. We found the premises clean and well cared for, and enjoyed our week there immensely. Everything was to our satisfaction, and we were very appreciative of the accommodations offered. The extra 'water' bottles were of great help as we arrived to the cottage at o200h and therefore, did not have an opportunity of shopping until the afternoon of the same day. We will certainly recommend this cottage to our families and friends. Thank you, Anca. Paul and Patricia in Alberta, Canada.

My family had a wonderful stay at Sunshine Cottage. The cottage is adorable- newly and nicely redone- very clean. I really appreciated the front porch for the children and that I could close the doors to cut down the noise from their competitive Wii games. Lol Bedrooms are small and the two comfortable queen mattresses are on platforms close to the floor- neither were an issue for us but someone with mobility issues may want to know that. We had a great stay and I can't say one negative thing about this fabulous cottage. The owner provided excellent and prompt communication. Thank you Anca for a week of peace and relaxation!

Sunshine Cottage, was Superb! The pictures do not do it justice. Very nice decor, modern and very clean. I went with my daughter and 2 grand kids, 4yrs old and 5 wks old. Anca, was so accommodating and her attention to detail amazing! My 4yr old Granddaughter loved the cottage and said Grandma I want to stay here forever. Anca allowed us to use her kids toys, movies etc. The cottage is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and want, we really felt at home. Great outdoor space with cloths line that we used , and fully equipped indoor front porch with TV and sitting space, which gave us so much room to take quiet time when needed. We had some really great family dinners around the wonderful dinning set with bench. The beach 5 min walk, is beautiful, Crystal beach is amazing! We really had some special family bonding at Sunshine cottage, my granddaughter is still taking about it a week later. Thanks for the memories Anca!

We stayed at this property for a few days. It was perfect for the adults and children. Very clean all the amenities we needed and a few minutes walk to beautiful Crystal Beach. The owner was pleasant to deal with. We had a great time and would stay here again!!

Beautiful place to stay! Very clean and newly renovated! Loved the decor and was equipped with everything you may need. Very close to neighbours which is the only downfall. Enjoyed both indoor and outdoor spaces! Owner is terrific to deal with:)

Thank you for your nice review, And sorry for your party being interrupted by the complaining neighbour. Crystal beach is a small beach town, mostly quiet, not so much partying, very popular with families and, indeed, the cottages are close to each other. Unfortunately that is something we can't change :)
