About the Property

Private guest loft overlooking Melmerby Beach Provincial Park

Looking for a stress free time away from the everyday. Debating between the comfort of a chic hotel and the trill of more authentic accommodations? You’ll get the best of both with this cozy studio apartment.

Located on the inner harbor of one of Nova Scotia’s finest beaches comes a fully furnished suite with a queen –sized bed, luxury bed linens and towels, a kitchenette with dining table, sofa and chairs, tv with Netflix, air conditioning and a private bathroom. It’s the perfect size for two people. This hidden gem is packed with character from its sloped ceilings & sky lights to it’s window bench overlooking the ocean.

When your ready to venture out, King’s Head is located 12 minutes from the charming town of New Glasgow, 1.5 hours from Halifax International Airport, 30 minutes to the P.E.I ferry terminal & 2 hours from Cape Breton's famous Cabot Trail.

Melmerby Beach is one of the best and most popular beaches in Nova Scotia, with some of the warmest waters around.

Known as “The Merb” for short, boardwalks lead from the parking area, over the dunes to a 2km strip of sand. In the summer there are lifeguards on hand plus changing rooms, toilets and showers. Everything is free to enjoy.

There are actually two sides to Melmerby Beach, the main outer beach with the best sand and swimming, and a smaller inner beach which is more sheltered from the ocean but with incredibly warm water. That’s where we are located.

Nestled down a long wooded lane over looking Melmerby Beach and the rock bluffs of Roy's Island we often see deer, eagles, rabbits, and sometimes seals in the harbor. There is lots of room to ride bikes, take walks, kayak, wind-sail or just skip rocks.

The book shelf is stalked with books, puzzles, legos & games to help you relax.

You’ll find the locals are really welcoming and we’d be happy to help out with any questions about local activities and bookings.
