All about Carla’s place

Wild, beautiful and exhilarating... peaceful, calm and relaxing... the beach in front of the Cape Cottage provides a different experience every day. Take your pick of two decks to enjoy the spectacular view or relax on the patio out back.
The one-level cottage features a spacious open concept and comfortable seating area, lots of wood and a unique driftwood bed.

The space
This oceanfront property faces False Harbour beach, which is just a two-minute walk away along a grassy path. It is home to many wildflowers and bird species and is a certified Canadian Wildlife Federation "Wildlife-friendly Habitat." The sandy beach is a popular one for strolling and watching the wave action during stormy weather in the fall and winter.
Wake to a rosy sunrise and watch the marine traffic entering and leaving Yarmouth Harbour past the lighthouse, or herons fishing in tidal pools.

I'm passionate about this region of Nova Scotia and showing others what's so wonderful about it. As a former member of the couch-surfing organization I hosted more than 100 visitors from around the world over nearly a decade. A few years ago I founded a social media group called We Love Yarmouth. It now has close to 4,000 members! I'm happiest either beside, on, or under the ocean. My partner Brent built the Cape Cottage and we spend as much time as we can there. I'm fortunate to have a wide network of contacts from my 16 years as a reporter for a community newspaper so if you want to see or do something in the area, chances are pretty good I can either show or connect you!
