About Rachel

Antigonish has been my home and since 1986, and my husbands home all his life. We love Antigonish we lived away and moved back to the area 13 years ago.

We have always wanted a house on the ocean and this opportunity is now upon us, so it is only fair that we share what we have always longed for with guests who will truly appreciate the beauty of this gorgeous location.

Please come and enjoy!

Rachel purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Rachel chose Nova Scotia

Not many properties can boast that you do actually step off the deck onto the sand.

What makes this apartment unique

Not many properties are walking distance to a seafood restaurant and the opportunity to buy lobster right off the boat.

Amazing view, quiet, clean, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Rachel's property. She and her husband were wonderful. They checked in on us when we arrived and the following morning to ensure we had everything we needed. Their property is in a great location with an amazing view of the beach and water.

The beach is rock and sand, but more sand. Perfect for kids.By comparison, we had been to two other beaches along the coast, both were all rocks making it difficult to enter the water.

There are also large flat rocks you can climb on further down the beach.

We had booked this place on short notice and couldn't have asked for a better place!

Rachel welcomed us with a beautiful home on the beach front. She went out of her way to may our stay wonderful. The location was great for travelling to Cape Breton and PEI. The beach was so soothing, nice to walk on the sand. It was beyond my expectations. I wouldn't think twice about returning to this location. Thanks so much, Laurie.

Everything we needed to reconnect and unwind

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property, the location is unbeatable and Chad and Rachel had us all setup. The apartment was extremely clean and had everything we needed. It is literally steps from the beach and Cribbon Point beach was beautiful. Chad set us up so we could have a beach bonfire and sit out one night. Would recommend this place for any family looking to relax and spend some downtime together. My only complaint was we should have booked for longer, we definitely weren't ready to leave at the end!!!! Thanks for everything Chad and Rachel.

Absolutely PERFECT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rachel and Chad's beachfront property for 7 days in July. It couldn't have be a better experience! The property was clean, well-maintained and nicely furnished. The view of the beach is beautiful and the sunsets were breathtaking. There were 3 of us and we had plenty of room. It's a short drive into Antigonish. This is a great location! We took trips up to Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island besides doing sightseeing locally. While we were there in the beginning of July, the Antigonish Highland Games were going on. We loved taking part in all of the festivites. Highly recommend! Rachel and Chad couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. They helped us with directions, gave us great sightseeing suggestions and answered our questions about ferry times and reservations over to Prince Edward Island. We will definitely stay here again when back in the area!
