Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful house, home away from home We had the most relaxing holiday at Helen's over the Easter long weekend. The place is so clean, well equipped and beautiful. The house is right next to the water with no road or other tourists in between, truly water front! We spent an afternoon just sitting in front of the windows looking out over the water, sunsets are amazing at this spot. Room is spacious and bed very comfortable, we had a really good sleep from day 1 which was rare for us. This is the ideal place for those who wants to get away from the crowd and enjoy peace and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed Helen's fully cooked hot breakfast everyday and their hospitality. A truly home away from home feeling, thanks for having us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hide away. Absolutely waterfront! This is the greatest holiday experience we've had with our whole family! The hosts - Helen & John made us feel like at home! Different activities for young & old! Nothing is too much for them! And the Master Chef quality food Helen cooked for us is so delicious! 5 days stay is not long enough! We are already planning the next trip to go back to North Arm Cove later this year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stay We thoroughly recommend staying with Helen and her delightful husband John in their amazing property. All our family, baby included, had a wonderful time. Very clean, great facilities, wonderful views, great breeze. Helen is the best chef you could find. She could easily open a restaurant. Dinner available for those who prefer good quality. We were very impressed with the gourmet world class cooking. Breakfast was beautiful too and varied each morning. Met some other wonderful people while we were there and are definitely planning a trip back.
