Pretty, Peaceful, a Treasure
I had the good fortune to be able to call this upstairs apartment "my home away from home" for two weeks. The large picture windows offered up gorgeous views of the Northumberland Straight and front row seats for sunrises and sunsets. I enjoyed having the windows open so I could listen to the waves. The apartment was clean, very quiet, it contained everything that was needed. There were two beaches just a couple of minutes away. They were nice beaches to stroll along.
I received a warm welcome and was shown around the apartment and where everything was. Art was an attentive host. I felt welcome and I felt at home. I would definitely consider making this my home away from away another time.
Stay with a view
The rental is an upstairs apartment. It is very large space, with a well equipped full kitchen ( minus a dishwasher) sitting area two bathrooms and king sized bed.
Art was a fantastic host, though we were only there for one night, we did explore the beach. We would stay again, if back in the area.
Beautiful apartment with exceptional views and kind host!
This is a beautiful spacious new apartment attached to the host's home, located right on the ocean with 2 beaches within walking distance on either side. The two huge picture windows in the living area look out over the ocean so that, even though the weather didn't always cooperate, we were able to enjoy the view while indoors. We also loved visiting the local points of interest, including the Ship Hector museum in Pictou, the Museum of Industry in Stellarton, and the fine choice of restaurants in nearby New Glasgow. The central location also allowed for day trips to Halifax and to Cape Breton. Art, our host, was so kind and friendly, offering helpful information and advice to help us make the most of our time in Nova Scotia. We truly wished we had more time to spend there, and will treasure the memories of our visit.
Fabulous view clean contemporary accommodations
Spacious second floor apartment with incredible view of the Bay of Fundy. Gorgeous sunrise and sunsets.Host, Art, was very thorough in explaining where everything was and how the switches all worked. Really enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub. Highly recommend this place for a quiet getaway on the water. Walking distance to two beaches.
Great...nice comfortable place
Great place beaches all around ..comfortably place bed and showers ..with full kitchen .. view ocean out all windows . .
Apartment with Fantastic View
Fantastic view. More windows near the kitchen table would be nice to take advantage of the view.Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Clean and tidy space. Close to amenities.Perhaps should mention stairs in the ad , as there are quite a few to reach the second floor. No mention of apartment being upstairs .
MORE WINDOWS NEAR THE KITCHEN TABLE
We already have five large windows along that wall facing the Northumberland Straight with two of them having 25sq.ft. of glass and three having 15sq. ft. of glass. This comment has not been mentioned before however if it comes up again we will consider adding another window.
NO MENTION OF APT BEING UPSTAIRS
I did not realize this and I will correct it. Of course this is why the view is so fantastic. Its on the second floor
Very quiet- there is absolutely no sound at night except the sound of the waves after a window day. You can see the stars very clear as well as the vapor trails of the aircraft heading overseas (but you can't hear them) You can watch the deer eating on the lawn along with Mr. Rabbit
