Terms and General Information

Housekeeping Cottages– All our cottages are Housekeeping Cottages, meaning guests are responsible for their own housekeeping during their stay.  We ask that you please leave your cottage in the same condition in which you found it.

Groups, Families etc. – Due to the size of our facility, the proximity of the cottages to each other and to ensure the quiet enjoyment of all our guests, we cannot accommodate groups requiring multiple cottages, unless ALL cottages are rented as a whole (all 3 cottages on Buchanan Beach or all 5 cottages on Crescent Beach). These arrangements will need to be made with the owners well in advance to ensure availability. Please contact us if you need clarification or have any questions. Guests making separate reservations, under different names without disclosing that they are together, may be asked to leave and will forfeit their deposit.

Entertaining Visitors – Our cottages are for the use and enjoyment of registered guests only. Out of consideration for our guests, our neighbours and our facilities, please refrain from entertaining visitors while staying at Seaside Cottages. Thank you for abiding by our policy.
