“Peaceful”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

If you need to rest and get away from the hectic life of the city like us, that's the place. It is a peaceful and a very quiet place. No telephone hardline, no satellite coverage for you mobile and that's what we wanted. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the cottage from the 309 road (about 7 km). Since the check-in time is late in the afternoon, we recommend to do a basic grocery for the diner and the breakfast the next morning since the closest villages to do the grocery are 30-minutes road trip away from Blanche (in Barrington Passage or Shelburne). A bigger grocery for the week could be done the next day and should be considered once you see what other people who rented the cottage before you have left in the pantry.

We have seen different kinds of animals in the backyard (hares, deers, porcupines, wild turkeys, hummingbirds, etc.).

The cottage is clean, well-maintained and has kept the charm of a century-old house. It is well-equiped, it has a wood stove that we used on two humid nights.

We enjoyed the place tremendously and highly recommend the cottage. We hope to renew the experience within the next three years at the same place if the cottage is still on the vacation rental market.

We really enjoyed the cottage. It was spacious, clean and had a lot of old charm. Be prepared to bring some groceries because you are not close to town and some mornings it was really foggy to travel out. You have all of the appliances that you need including a large bbq and laundry. A couple of downsides for me was the closest beach was about a half hour + away. The view of the water is not great from the cottage and when you walk down the road to the water you willl discover that it is very rocky. Cell service for our two providers was not great inside the cottage. There is an awesome tv with great satellite service but no dvd player and no internet. There was a scrabble game and a deck of cards. The yard is big and lots of bunnies and deer. If you want to disconnect from the world and have lots of privacy-this is the place.

“Disconnect!”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If you're looking to disconnect from your devices, this is the ideal place for you! No internet, no telephone, just the trees around you and water on the horizon. Sea Change is a charming house, simply but thoughtfully decorated and equipped. Lots of cozy spots and a big deck to sit and take it easy. Catch up on your reading but be prepared to be distracted by rabbits galore and even deer at sunrise and sunset. Bring your binoculars for some seriously great star gazing. All in all, the perfect place to relax and just breathe in the tranquility of this remote spot.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Was pleasantly surprised when I walked into this cottage. Took me back to my childhood days. Loved the old creeky floors and stairs. We had no water when we arrived but the caretaker was right there to solve the problem. Would love to go back sometime. I nice place to go and relax. Loved watching all the rabbits playing and running around. Great entertainment.

“Absolute ZEN!!”

We spent a week in August 2015 at the "Sea Change", and my partner had to pry me off the porch pillar to go home! It is a very well laid-out, peaceful place, well-decorated and spotlessly clean home,( (fridge,stove, washrooms are immaculate), completely equipped with all things necessary to relax, including a hammock to veg out on!
When you arrive, you know that it speaks volumes around R & R. Music choice is nicely varied, good movies, and internet strength.
Area is totally private, and the inclement weather only enhances the experience. Beaches are within twenty minutes, and a pebble beach is a ten minute walk from the driveway. You can hear the ocean from anywhere in the house, and it is well ventilated, complete with heat pump for air or heat. View from the upstairs master bedroom is amazing.
Home is tastefully decorated with a nice balance of vintage cottage, and new-age amenities. Cozy couches,claw-footed tub, 2 bathrooms, one with a shower, perfect lighting ambiance, bedding to die for.
Sleeping in that breeze is a whole new experience. It was hard to leave the place to go touring around!! Shopping, liquor stores, banking all within a 20 minute drive.
Perfect for up to two couples, girls weekend, escape-reality place, veg-out, play..etc...
Would not hesitate to rent. The only caveat here is that the pictures of the outside of the place make it look like it has had a fresh coat of paint. It hasn't. It needs a good paint job, but the second you open the door and step in, all is forgiven!
