About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This luxurious two-story beach house was completed in the summer of 2004. It is nestled among the trees on a bluff overlooking Cape Breton's most spectacular pebble beach..

The house is wrapped on three sides by a covered veranda with a gazebo that is set up for dining, and offers a glorious view of Cape Smokey. The house is furnished with attention to quality and comfort. Ceramic and hardwood floors throughout. A stunning view from every window.

On the main floor is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a sun-filled dining area, and a living room with a wood stove, a bedroom with queen size bed, and a bathroom with full size washer and dryer.

On the second floor is a comfortably furnished lounge, also overlooking the beach, and three bedrooms. One bedroom with a queen size bed has an en suite bath, and the other two, one with queen size bed, the other with twin beds, share a third bathroom.

A barbecue area is waiting for the Chef’s special grillades..

On the lower level is the multi purpose and conference room and a full bathroom. Direct access to the beach also from this level.

The Beach house accommodates eight persons in total privacy. All linens and staple supplies are provided. Electric heat, air exchanger and wood stove. There are 100 acres of ocean front and mountain wilderness to explore on natural hiking trails every season of the year. We also invite you to swim in the spring-fed pond and enjoy, in season, the produce, berries and flowers from the gardens. You may see eagles, many seabirds, seals and whales, moose and other wild life right from your windows.

A separate building houses the games room with a professional pool table, ping-pong table, foosball table and dart game for those rainy days or long winter evenings after skiing or snowshoeing. Petanque balls, croquet and other games are also available.

Rental runs from Sunday to Sunday. Arrival 4:00 pm, departure 11:00 am

Excellent location, such amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group staying at the house with us for a week. This house is well positioned at the start of the Cabot Trail and the views from the upstairs front bedroom and porch are amazing. You can see the start of the cliffs aside Smokey mountain. What a treat. The beach is rocky, which makes it difficult for walking or swimming, but the sound is soothing.... the waves and returning "singing pebbles" are quite relaxing. We have stayed in many locations around the world, by far, this was one of our most enjoyable weeks so far.

Thanks so much Jitka for your hospitality, we appreciated the homemade apple pie and flowers upon our arrival.

Owner's Response: The cobble beach makes a great place for camp fires and your dropped wieners don't come up covered with sand and inedible. LOL

Beautiful clean property

  • 5 of 5

Family had a fantastic week staying at Wreck Cove. Jitka was a wonderful and welcoming host. Property was well maintained and home was clean and well equipped. Great open floorplan to enjoy family time together. Property was 25 minute drive to most "attractions", but seclusion was part of its charm. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful home with beautiful scenery and Sun rises!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at wreck cove beach house was wonderful. Jitka was very welcoming and we had a tasty apple pie awaiting our arrival! Jitka had fishing rods so we were able to go fishing. We enjoyed exploring the property around the house and hiked up to her beautiful cabin up on the hill. Had a great week!

Best Vacation Yet!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been back from Wreck Cove for nearly two weeks and we can't stop thinking about our visit. The pictures online in no way show the absolute beauty of the location. The view of Cape Smokey and the sunrise from above the beach are awesome. From the beach house, you feel that no one else is nearby - and that is the literal truth. You are completely away from the stress of everyday life. The house is beautiful, well-maintained and very comfortable. You can't beat having four bedrooms and four baths. No internet, but that may be a plus for those wanting to get away from reality. The kitchen is fully equipped. But the real treat is getting to know Jitka, the owner, and greatest ambassador for the house. She lives on the other side of the road (Cabot Trail) but you would not know it. She is always available but stays out of your way. She is a joy to meet and has great stories to tell. The property goes back from the beach about 1.5 km and includes a pond and plenty of opportunity for hiking and additional views of the coast and ocean. You definitely will get a wilderness feel and a great rest. In the mornings we saw fabulous sunrises and seals swimming just a few yards off the beach. And later in the day we saw bald eagles and puffins at a nearby cove. Overall, a great place to vacation and a wonderful host.

Couldn't have been more perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the house and had an absolutely amazing time. Incredibly peaceful. The house if beautiful, and the property even more so. Jitka was incredibly helpful and accommodating. At the end of the week, we had our small wedding ceremony in the backyard, about 30 guests, and it was exactly what we wanted it to be - private and relaxed, with beautiful views of the ocean and Cape Breton.

Private ocean beach. Beach bonfires, great moon rise, great location. The deck around the house helped on rainy days.
