Spacious, clean, very nice & well equipped apartment over a garage on approx 25 acres stretching to the water. Wonderful people that let us pick an abundance of vegetables from their large garden. Relaxing nights spent around a fire in a gazebo. Fed their chickens vegetable scraps through the fence. Went to the beach when the tide was out. Watched the tide ebb & flow from the terrace. To note - the water can be reached from the property with a challenging set of stairs - safety is questionable. The better way was to walk or drive a short distance to the park & walk there. Swimming is not recommended or that good. A very different kind of stay - our 17 year old daughter loved it and wants to go back as soon as she can.
Perfect location for sight seeing and the views are stunning. The owners were very welcoming and the apartment was very roomy, modern and clean! We would certainly visit again.
If you are looking for a place with a view then this is it. We enjoyed a beautiful view out of the living room and on the deck. The place is fully stocked with everythimg you need including laundry and a bbq.
There is not a lot to do in the immediate area but you can drive to hiking trails and into town.
The owner of the property is friendly and stays out of your way.
For your information there is no air conditioning and no windows in the bedrooms so it does get quite warm at night. The owner does provide you with fans.
We were very comfortable and the area was beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. You need to be aware that the apartment is on the second floor and that the staorsnare fairly steep.
We traveled with our young adult children and stayed in a loft that accommodated 6 people. There is a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and sofa bed. The balcony/deck overlooks the Minas Basin and the view never gets old. You can walk to the beach and experience this lovely landscape when the tide is in or out. We also were encouraged to pick fresh produce from their lovely garden. We had lettuce, beets strawberries and blueberries.
This location is 1 hour north of Halifax and 1 hour from other popular places like Mahone Bay and Lunenberg. We were also not too far away from Sandy Cove where our dear friends were staying.
This rental was our home base allowing us to take day trips and we would always look forward to our return "home".
