Holiday Rental House
This four-bedroom home sits on a hill overlooking beautiful Hirtle's beach, Romkey Pond and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a short walk to the beach up the road and through the fields, or an easy drive for those who prefer to not to walk. Described as 'a nature enthusiast's paradise' Hirtle's offers more than three kilometers of white sand and rolling surf set surrounded by drumlin cliffs and breathtaking views. There is also access to two ponds from the beach for warmer water and small children who might prefer not to be in the ocean waves. The path accessing 'cliff walk' at Gaff Point is at the end of the beach and offers fantastic hiking for all ages and abilities. The 'cliff walk' is a great way to spend the day hiking and picnicking and taking in the views and is definitely recommended dur...This four-bedroom home sits on a hill overlooking beautiful Hirtle's beach, Romkey Pond and the Atlantic Ocean.

The 'cliff walk' is a great way to spend the day hiking and picnicking and taking in the views and is definitely recommended during your stay. The house and property are located on a private road and surrounded by nature. The area offers endless opportunity for outdoor activities - swimming, hiking, biking, surfing, kayaking etc. The nearby towns of Lunenburg and Mahone Bay offer restaurants, art galleries and shopping, while Halifax and Peggy's Cove are less than 1.5 hours away. Blue Rocks and the Lahave Bakery (a short ferry ride across the river) are also well worth visiting. The house is simple, yet charming, with two separate seating areas downstairs, a well-equipped kitchen and dining seating for 8+ with the use of two tables. The four bedrooms are upstairs and include 2 queens and two doubles. Note that one of the bedrooms is significantly smaller than the others and best suited for children or a single adult. Amenities include internet, TV with DVD player, stereo / CD player, microwave, toaster, lobster pot, coffee maker. The home is stocked with beach towels, linens, and bedding. The covered front porch with adirondack seating for 6 is a wonderful place to sit and read, watch the lobster boats or the moon rise, or enjoy an evening cocktail, while the outdoor shower is the perfect place to rinse off after a day at the beach or out exploring.

We could not have picked a better location to relax and unwind before our hectic lives restart in September. My husband and I flew from Southern California to meet up with my parents (late 60s) and our kids (15 and 18) for a full family...More
