Company info

We have owned and operated small hotels around the world. On the island of Vava'u in the South Pacific, in Banff and Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies, and Meribel in the French Alps. We have run a great seafood restaurant in the South Pacific called the Giggling Whale and Thirsty Turtle. We have had live-aboard sailing charters in the Mediterranean and in the South Pacific. We love to ski, sail, scuba dive, and meet people around the world in our free time. It's a big world with so little time and so many great places to see and people to meet Cathy and I look forward to hearing the stories of your travels around Nova Scotia and the world over coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening on the new guest patio or in the new garden
