Overview

About the property

Martinique Beach is the only Beach in Nova Scotia with Houses actually on it.

Beautiful 3 bedroom home on Martinique Beach Nova Scotia. A quick drive to Halifax and an amazing beach at your door. This property boarders on 2 sides the Martinique Beach Provincial Park. Martinique Beach is the longest sandy beach in Nova Scotia. This is a famous surfing beach as well and watching the surfers catch waves is always fun. The sun rises right in front of the house over the ocean and the gentle ocean breeze always makes for a memorable morning.

Please note that the turnover day is Friday so all rentals must start and end on that day.

About Michael Evans

I am a Montrealer living in Calgary. After seeing this beach many years ago I immediately set about buying a home here.

Michael Evans purchased this bungalow in 1996

What makes this bungalow unique

I love the water and the sound of the waves crashing at night while I fall asleep

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived late and had no problems getting into the house. In the morning we were greeted by the most wonderful sunrise over the ocean and beach right in front of the house! we can't wait to get back there for another visit next year

Martinique Beach front home for watching the surfers from the deck
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Amazing home for family Beach time

  • 5 of 5

The house was well appointed and the kitchen had absolutely everything we could want. The huge deck is amazing for afternoons and being able to step off the deck and be in the sand in seconds was the best part. We are all surfers so getting in the waves and then being able to shower immediately after was so wonderful. Highly recommended!

Being right on the beach, the beach walk is the first thing we do every morning. There are extensive biking and hiking trails nearby as well. Fishing is great and you can pickup fresh fish from the dock regularly. We are just outside Halifax so driving in for dinner is reasonable and there are major grocery stores nearby as well.
