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.

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!

Perfect Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed 7 nights at Rachel and Chad's beachfront retreat at Cribbon's Beach ! Property was absolutely beautiful and Rachel and Chad were very warm and friendly and the perfect hosts! They treated me like family and made me feel completely at home and comfortable.The apartment had room to sleep 5 and I saw perfect sunrises and fell asleep listening to the waves roll in on the beach at night.Very peaceful,beautiful spot to vacation. Walked 10 minutes down the beach to Boyd's Seafood Galley for delicious clams and lobster rolls! I did not have to ask for anything! All amenities were provided including the bonfire materials! 15 minute drive to downtown Antigonish.

I will definitely recommend this beach retreat to friends and family and will plan to stay longer next time! Thanks for the perfect beach vacation Rachel and Chad!! Take Care, Mary H.

Very Nice Location

  • 5 of 5

We will at Rachel's and Chad's rental the last week of April. It is a great location...right on the beach. Can watch fishing and lobster boats in the bay and there were deer in the yard. Also saw a coyote when I was walking on the beach one morning. Accommodations were very good. There was plenty of room and everything required was provided. It is about a 15-20 minute scenic drive into Antigonish. I would definitely stay there again.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

It is a very nice "cottage" located just off a very nice beach. Our stay there truly felt like a getaway. We enjoyed walks along the beach each day and swimming most days. The beach was close enough that you could listen to the pleasant surf sounds day and night but it was also quite private. The place has a very nice feel with top quality furnishings and accessories. Plenty of space for families or two couples. Will try to rent again the next time we are in the area.
