James was a great host and even provided a lobster pot and burner as well as lobster cooking expertise. The house was roomy, comfortable and clean. We had a great stay.

great house

  • 5 of 5

What a great house and lovely view. Short walk to the cove and a wonderful view of the ocean. Halifax is a short drive and try to go to the Farmers Market on Saturday for a treat. The house was spotless and I loved the kitchen. The owner gave us a bottle of his wine and it was delicious. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are perfect. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Wonderful Cove Home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this home from Nov 2 - Dec 17th. The house is right across of the street from the cove which is beautiful and right out of a movie with how picturesque it is. I walked to the breakaway at the end of the street daily to take in the beautiful Atlantic ocean. The house is fully stocked with everything you could ever need with regards to kitchen equipment, linens, chairs etc. The owners put a lot of thoughts in to making our stay perfect with a bottle of Nova Scotia wine and handmade soaps. The bedrooms are all a great size as is the property for sitting out either on the porch or in the backyard.

I would recommend this rental to anyone visiting NS as it is close to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, local beaches and provincial parks. Wonderful stay!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for 2 weeks. Very spacious rooms. Had a well- stocked kitchen. Had a BBQ for 17 guests and we all fit in the house no problem. Loved the walk-in closet. My son and 2 grandchildren came and spent 2 nights. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us. James was a wonderful host. We got locked out of the house one morning and just had to go across the street for James to let us in. James replied to my e-mails very quickly. It is the kind of house that I would like to own. The bottle of local wine and flowers were a wonderful touch. The location was perfect. Not right in the city but close enough to get to anywhere. Thanks again James for sharing your home with us and |I will most definitely stay here again.
