Sailor`s Rest House - Contact
Changing the world, one site at a time…
We came across the Atlantic and immigrated in 2012 to enjoy sailing on our 70-square-meter sailing catamaran with our guests on a modern 12-meter (38`) catamaran. We love to explore the numerous dreamy bays, swim and get our dinner ourselves, fishing mackerels and collecting mussels.
After living aboard for a few years we make a rest and renovated our private Sailor`s Rest House with lots of love.
Rental fee for the Sailor`s Rest is 168 CAD/night plus cleaning fee 95 CAD including 2 guests and highspeed internet.
extra guests (max 2) + 10 CAD/night

We ask for a security (damage) deposit 400 CAD, refundable at departure
„My friends and I had a wonderful experience staying at Robert's Sailor's Rest. It's a small cottage off the beaten path and overlooks Samson's Cove. Great for privacy or a quiet retreat. The hosts were very welcoming and patiently answered all our questions about the area. Full functioning kitchen (important to our group of four adults) and very comfortable eating in or out on the deck that overlooks the ocean. For those who are over 6 feet tall, take note of low doorways/beams throughout. The rules list, as we suspected, is not as daunting as it seems - the hosts clearly care about their space and want to keep it looking nice. We would return in a heartbeat!“

Here some reviews from AirBnB:

I've stayed in over 40 AirBnBs now globally, and I must say, that Sailor´s Rest home in Sampson Cove is close to the best. Such a gorgeous location overlooking the waves lapping at the shore, and I could stare out over their back lawn at the sunrise/sunsets all day. Robert communicated often and got us prepped for the visit. You'll enjoy exploring the island, plenty of options for kayaking, some fun local eateries, and great walks around the area. Very highly recommend.

Weather wasn't great so we didn't spend a lot of time outdoors other than to go on day trips. As a result we spent a lot of time in the house. We found it to be clean, bright, comfortable, minimalist and a little quirky but more than adequate for a very relaxing vacation for two. Superb location for which the description and pictures tell the story. Enjoyed watching the lobster fishermen working their traps each morning right out the front window. Great coastal walks (not necessarily easy) if so inclined. Enjoyed our limited experience of the surrounding communities and found people friendly. As a result of the weather didn't see much of the adjacent neighbours. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
