  • Peaceful Retreat

    "We stayed here in early April for a geocaching getaway to explore Nova Scotia. Knowing the weather could be iffy this time of year, I wanted a peaceful place on the ocean with a fireplace for cozy evenings even if the wind was howling outside. This place fit the bill perfectly and Bill provided us with ample logs. Thankfully the fireplace was easy to use. It is a beautiful home in a peaceful location and even though neighbours aren't that far away (if needed) you'd never know it - perfect for what we were looking for. To get to this secluded location in a gated community, you need to travel approx 4 km down gravel roads. We especially enjoyed returning around dusk because there was lots of wildlife we encountered on these quiet country roads. We saw deer, porcupine and even a ruffed grouse showing off in hopes of attracting a mate. We also enjoyed evening walks along the quiet country road. Bill was great to deal with and even when we encountered a misunderstanding, he was quick to make it right. He is trusting, welcoming and helpful and we appreciated the special touch of flowers, chocolate and wine welcoming us upon arrival. Kudos to his cleaning staff (he told us who does his cleaning but that's our little secret :)) who make sure the place is spic and span. We really enjoyed our time here and wouldn't hesitate to return."

  • Outstanding Home - Highly Recommended

    "In four years living in the United States we have been fortunate enough to stay in a number of great holiday rentals across North America. However, this house was, by a very long way, the best. What made it so special? Firstly, the location. It sits on a small hill, away from the minor access road, with magnificent views over the river and out to sea. It is a short drive from Mahone Bay shops. You therefore have the convenience of the (really interesting and charming) town without any of the traffic. Secondly, the house. It has real character. You feel as though you are living in history. It is extremely clean and very well equipped. You will not want for anything. The beds are super comfortable and, combined with the silence, you will sleep really well. Thirdly, the things to do. There is a canoe and rowing boat on a quay just down from the house. If you don’t want to go out on the boats you can sit on the quay and toes the sun going down with a glass of wine. There is a very large garden and a great walking trail next door. Finally, the people. Meg and Paul are very generous and very interesting hosts. They will make you feel very welcome. In summary, this is an extraordinary holiday home located in a beautiful part of the world. It is highly recommended. We certainly cannot wait to go back."

  • A comfortable landing in Hallifax

    "We found this condo to be very clean and comfortable, right down to the futon bed. It provided a great landing spot for assorted adventures in Halifax and the surrounding area. I was not familiar with Halifax before this trip, and expected it to be closer to the downtown area. But we all really enjoyed being close to the north end, with its assortment of wonderful restaurants, and a lovely charcuterie and cheese shop. It allowed us to explore an area of Halilfax we might not have gotten to otherwise, and that would have been a pity. The Agricola Street Bistro is a must. And it was really only about a 15 minute walk (or less) to downtown areas. Everything is quite close. I highly recommend it."

  • Quiet, Lovely, and felt like I arrived in a Pinterest Photo!

    "At first glance I fell in love with this cottage. Its faces the ocean and you can watch the sunset right from the upper bedroom bed. Each room is lovingly decorated in beachy cottage theme. It's immaculately clean and well taken care of. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place for my 13 year old daughter and I to reconnect and turn off all electronics. We also brought our little chihuahua, bubbles. She loved sitting outside on the front porch which was gated at both ends to keep her safe. There is no internet, which I welcomed. If we needed to keep in contact we just drove to town, a few minutes away. I loved all the windows in this cottage. At night I would open and let all the fresh air inside. I could also listen to the ocean to fall asleep at night. So nice. There is a well known seafood market just down the road which sells live lobsters, and there is a huge pot (with directions) to cook them in at the cottage. The kitchen has everything you would need to make yourself at home. Actually, this cottage has everything you need, from extra blankets and towels to laundry detergent and extra shampoo if you forgot yours. The sunroom is where we spent most of our time staring outside at the ocean each morning and night. Peggy and Rex (the owners) live just down the road. They great wealth of information about the area and are lovely people. Annapolis Royal is a quaint quiet town, but has lots to see and the history is amazing. We took the graveyard tour and thought it was really fun and information. There is a market in town every week that showcases local vendors. There is also a cute gift store in town at the very end....not to miss. I highly recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a quiet holiday. I say quiet because it feels like a peaceful retreat. In today's world sometimes you just need to find a place like this to relax and unwind. There are also trails in the backyard you can go on. This would be a PERFECT honeymoon cottage. Long walks on the beach in front were an everyday occasion for us, even when the weather was rainy. My daughter and I found lots to do in the area. We shopped at Frenchy's. If you don't know what that is, then look it up and plan an afternoon to go."
