This property was extraordinary. Right on the water with views and beaches. Spacious accommodations with two bathes and a large walk-in closet, full kitchen and dining. More a large apartment than a weekly rental. The owner was warm and responsive. If I’d known he was there, I would have gone to NS just to meet him. Don’t pass this up.
A Beautiful Experience
My husband and I just arrived home in Halifax from our 3 night stay in Chance Harbour. It is difficult to summarize all the special things in this upstairs apartment. Opening the front door the first thing you see is the ocean , the view is spectacular with windows on the entire side facing the ocean We sat on the new deck and watched the sunset and sunrise. If you enjoy this then renting here is for you. The 2 beautiful bathrooms with 2 showers and a jacuzzi is more than most houses have. We don’t sleep in often, but the king size bed is so comfortable with only the birds singing provided the comfort to sleep in till 9 The unit is big with everything provided. We walked on the 2 beaches which can be seen from the unit The hosts were great and we are hoping to return soon or because it is winterized maybe then. I know this is long but after reading some of the previous comments I feel I need to assure future guests that they will truly enjoy their stay
Not exactly as advertised
We were kind of disappointed.... The ocean views were amazing and the cool breezes at night and quiet were wonderful, however the pictures that were advertised weren't what we experienced. In the pictures on VRBO, there are lovely curtains, pictures on the wall, a tv in bedroom, knick-knacks all around, and big comfortable recliners (what was there wasn't comfortable at all), and they said there was a deck on the unit. However they were in the process of building it, and was just a bunch of 2x4's off of an unusable door to the outside (on the 2nd floor). The unit was clean and the owner and his family were extremely pleasant. They did offer early arrival because of the heat and later an extra day because of the deck not being completed, but we left as arranged anyway. The bed was also a queen mattress on a double frame, so you had to be careful sitting on the edge of the mattress. I also asked about towels, but linens were at a minimum. We ended up going out and buying towels of our own. Also, there were stairs to the unit and a key lock on door at bottom, however there was also a door inside, leading off the entrance (which could also be accessed from their garage, and their side of the house). And the door to the unit at the top of the stairs, had no key (just a lock on the inside), so when you left for the day your things were not private at all. This being said, I don't think we would use VRBO again.... It was our first and probably last experience with something like this.
We can answer as follows:
We have a rocking chair, reclainer, chesterfield, 40" flat screen sat. tv. All of our previous guests are perfectly happy with this arrangement No curtains means a better view through the 7 windows( two additional ones this year ) on 38ft. of wall, overlookiing the ocean thus there is no space for paintings . We would rather our guests have a fantastic view rather than "knicks-knacks"
The balcony was delayed by the almost total daily rain and wind this spring, It was completed two weeks ago..
The bed is actually king size 80" wide which overhangs the two box spring twin mattresses underneath by 3" on either side. ( which means its impossible to flip )
We were not made aware of the towel issue, we have plenty of towels, all the Maxwells had to do was ask. There were still towels in the unit after they left.
The unit has stairs, its on the second floor of our home as advertised
The issue with the locks is not an issue, the lock at the top of the stairs is on an inside steel insulated door, mainly for sound, the additional lock is just an extra precaution when you are at sleep at night. The dead bolt at the bottom of the stairs leading to the outside does not have a knob on the inside but rather a key so you must use your key to lock or unlock to enter or exit the unit. The other door to witch she refers is locked and the keys are kept safe
We keep a guest book where guests can offer their comments, this was not done in this case. This was unfortunate because we could have addressed their concerns at the time .
However in closing we continue to enjoy great guests like our present couple who don't even lock their doors, after all we have never had a break in-ever, and there is always someone home. We look forward to renting to the Maxwells again and we will make every effort to make sure they feel safe and happy and enjoy their stay in this beautiful part of Nova Scotia.

Très calme - il n'y a absolument aucun son la nuit, sauf le bruit des vagues après une journée de fenêtre. Vous pouvez voir les étoiles très clairement ainsi que les traînées de vapeur de l'avion se dirigeant vers l'étranger (mais vous ne pouvez pas les entendre) Vous pouvez regarder les cerfs manger sur la pelouse avec M. Lapin Vous avez peut-être vu un panneau à vendre sur la pelouse, mais la vente de la maison a été reportée jusqu'en 2021
