  • Beautiful cottage, great location wonderful hosts!!!

    "We stayed in Xanadu by the Sea for 8 nights in Early November (off season). We chose the Cottage as a place to base ourselves for a week of Nova Scotia sightseeing, but also had to plan on having some bad/cold weather keeping us inside at that time of year. Xanadu by the Sea was perfect for us, having a great location on the water (and sunsets), plenty of places to drive to on our day-trips, and warm and cozy on the days we decided to stay at home and relax by the fire! Paul was fantastic and answered all our questions promptly. We met just outside the airport for a coffee, got the keys and took advantage of his local knowledge to plan some of our excursions. The cottage had everything we needed, including plenty of firewood (thanks Paul), coffee maker, utensils, washing machine, TV, internet, etc... just buy your groceries and enjoy your stay. We prefer to travel to places outside of the tourist season. Most tourist attractions were shut down by November, but there is still a lot to see and do and you can enjoy the beautiful sights with nobody else around. Antigonish has everything you need for dining, many distilleries and breweries are open year round and are happy to give private tours since there are no tour groups, and it's a great time to meet the locals in the small towns when you stop in for some lunch. We didn't get the chance to sit out on the porch as we went sightseeing on the warm days, but I can certainly imagine relaxing out there in the summer, listening to the ocean or music. Xanadu by the Sea is a place I would highly recommend and will certainly come back to for another getaway! Thanks again Paul for a wonder stay!"

  • Fantastic cottage and close to everything in Lunnenburg Co.

    "Nice getaway close to Mahone Bay. The historic charm of the cottage with all the appointments helped make us feel at home... like staying at a relatives home while they are away. View from the front deck and kitchen window are stunning. Location perfect between Halifax and all the SE sites to see and experience. Would not hesitate to rent this gem again."

  • The perfect home for a Nova Scotia stay

    "My wife and I recently stayed with my family in this absolutely stunning home. The home itself was impeccably maintained and offered both luxury and comfort. Paul was a most generous host and went out of his way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The decor made you feel as though you were immersed in the Nova Scotia wilderness, while the fireplaces, furniture, and large comfortable beds made you feel as though you were staying in your own home. The huge deck and fire pit out back that overlooks the serene pond make this home a perfect retreat. The quiet of nature is a treasure to wake up to every morning. We can't wait for our next stay at this gorgeous home!"
