“Wow - what an amazing experience to be able to stay in this boat house on the sea. We booked a last minute trip after waking up missing the tranquility of the ocean, and they quickly responded with an invitation to check in early. The space is beautiful, comfortable, neat and well equipped. After spending the day/night on the deck, we woke up early and went kayaking. It was incredible. Greg and Samantha are outstanding hosts - they were kind, and gave us our space, but were very friendly when approached. They went beyond expectation and were very flexible with check in and check out. This place is a treasure and we are excited to return in the future. Thank you!”
Our home is close to iconic Peggy's Cove and 50 km from Halifax. In our area we have spectacular ocean hiking trails, a variety of great restaurants, gift shops and art galleries. We are situated on a beautiful, small, private beach. You’ll love the beautiful ocean scenery, lovely gardens, view of the Bay from your bedroom deck, sounds of the ocean and warm Maritime hospitality. Our place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
“Len and Marilyn are so lucky to live in such a wonderful and idyllic place and give us the chance to experience living there for a short while by booking their air bnb. I would highly recommend staying there! Len and Marilyn were very welcoming and kind, even made me coffee in the morning and were very helpful at any time. The airbnb bedroom and private bathroom are upstairs and are decorated very lovely and are very clean too. The whole house is wooden which makes you feel at home in an instant and the bed was the most comfortable and cozy bed I've ever slept in (without exaggerating). Very comfortable mattress and the linens were so soft and you can even see the sea from your bed and fall asleep with the sound of the waves. I got up in the morning, walked a couple of steps from my bed on the own little balcony and was able to take in the sea breeze, was greeted by a kolibri looking at me and there was a squirrel sitting up in the tree, having breakfast . They have a lovely garden with lots of flowers and you can take a short walk through it to get down to their private dock and take a swim from there. (Cold but worth it). I mean where do you get the luxury of a private dock / beach (when the tide is low ) and a bedroom with such a view in a hotel without paying hundreds of dollars? You don't. And you wouldn't have the privacy and that familial atmosphere either. I could go on and on and write a book about it because literally this is a place where I'd imagine authors to be able to calm down and get inspired. When I sent some pictures to my friends they said it looks like the scenery of a Nicolas Sparks movie and that's how you could put it. Probably the reason why this might sound tacky to the outside but you have to stay there to see / feel it yourself. Oh and you're very close to Peggy's Cove of course, close to Halifax, there's nice places to eat at in the area (there's a folder in the room with lots of tips) and they have a darn cute house pig and dog. Dear Lean and Marilyn, thanks again for the stay and please excuse my romanticizing short-novel. Carolina”
Our oceanfront home is located on a quiet private road on pristine St. Margaret’s Bay. We are only 15 minutes to famous Peggy’s Cove and 30 minutes to Halifax.
“Susan's place is exactly as described - a beautiful view to come home to every day, and thoughtful amenities. This is definitely a home away from home, conveniently located to explore Halifax, Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg. My grandma, infant son and I enjoyed a lovely week here - we highly recommend!”
