Hubbards/Halifax Oceanfront Home in Nova Scotia

Hubbards house

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Beautiful Views, Comortable and Relaxing Home” As you drive into the beautifully graveled driveway and see the ocean at the side of the house you just know that this will be a relaxing vacation. When you enter the house you are invited in by a well equipped kitchen that leads into a beautiful family/living room. Downstairs there is a bedroom with a double bed and a three piece bathroom. Upstairs the master bedroom is the full width of the house with a picture window looking out into St. Margaret's Bay. Upstairs at the back of the house is a lovely bedroom with two double beds. As our friends had traveled from the UK we gave the upstairs bedrooms to them and took the down stairs ourselves. Back down on the ground floor the living room leads out onto a large deck which is fantastic for bbq's and just relaxing. This in turn leads to a large grassy area which in turn leads to a small private beach. The area around the house has many services and features and I can sincerely recommend it to anybody that wants a relaxing vacation within easy traveling distance of Halifax and the South Shore. All in all an excellent location and great value for money.

Stunning Secluded Oceanfront Island Home Near Lunenburg! 4BR, Car-Accessible.

Lunenburg house

4 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 6

“Great secluded location, charming house” We spent a week in September at the Fennel House in the LaHave islands. The beautiful, secluded location was the highlight of the trip. We drove in through the "bridge" leading to the islands (a road surrounded with water - breathtaking) and were just flabbergasted we had found such a gorgeous spot. The house is very charming and cosy. Its two wood-burning ovens made it nice and warm on cold September nights. The kitchen is well-equipped and the rooms and beds are comfortable. The patio and the upstairs deck were great for happy hour and breakfast! The views are beautiful. Upon arrival, Mont showed us around and made sure we knew all the little particularities and kinks of this old house, which was very appreciated. When the water heater broke down on the last night of our stay (we were told it was the first time this happened), Mont was accommodating and made sure we had access to the main house for showers on our last night. The seven of us fitted comfortably in the house, but be aware that one of the rooms (with a single bed) is in a shared space with another room (no privacy). Also note that the house is very secluded. For us, this was a plus, as we enjoyed the privacy and tranquility of the islands. But know that the closest supermarket and pharmacy are in Bridgewater, about a half-hour drive away. (On the first day, it seems long, but once you know your way around, it's really not that bad.) Lunenberg is about 45 minutes away. Closer, there is the charming LaHave bakery (15 minutes). Would absolutely rent again if we were in the area. Thank you for the great vacation!

“An amazing getaway” The drive to this cottage is beautiful to say the least. A tranquil drive on the road with a different feel and a change of vegetation. Right in front of the house is a vast expanse of water. During low tide, the water goes out to expose 200 ft out to the sea. Once you get to the cottage it's gets even better. The outside looks flawless. Almost like a house out of a lovely short story. Inside is what tops everything. Everything looks new and it has a modern feel. The ceiling is amazingly high, giving an open feel. There are a lot of windows and are strategically places so you can see the sunrise and sunset overlooking the sea. The place had everything in it, including napkins, towels, all kitchenette, and the owner (who lives next door) also gave us an HDMI cable upon asking, which allowed for some good movie time. All in all, this was the most beautiful and homey cottage I have ever been to. It was certainly an experience and will be coming back for sure.

“An absolutely wonderful experience with picture perfect views” "Wow". From the moment we entered this beautiful home, to every time we caught a glimpse of the stunning ocean views (which wasn't hard to do, as basically every window in the house and the many balconies provided breath-taking views of the LaHave Islands and surrounding areas), this is the word that we continually came back to - "wow". The house itself is beautiful. It's extremely spacious, but feels cozy at the same time. The windows provide incredible views and lots of natural light all day long. There are several beautiful balconies overlooking the islands and surrounding ocean. The kitchen was well equipped with any utensil or appliance you'd require, and a washer and dryer are available as well. For the first few hours after we arrived, we just sat in the atrium in the comfy armchairs, listening to music and taking in our amazing surroundings. It was delightful and relaxing, and I would've been content to do just that all weekend. Having lived in Nova Scotia for my entire life, I was somewhat familiar with the area of Petite Rivière/LaHave from childhood visits to Risser's Beach and Crescent Beach (both within 10 minutes of Skyview). I had never made the trip over to the LaHave Islands, but am so glad I was able to now. It's such a beautiful and quiet area. We also made trips to the LaHave Bakery (a must on your to-do list) and several markets, art and craft shops along the way, just a short drive from Skyview. The Owner of this beautiful spot was wonderful, and more than helpful, ensuring everything was in order so that we could enjoy our stay. His response time to e-mails was very quick, and he also called shortly after we arrived to make sure everything was ok and to answer any questions. He had taken the time to provide instructions regarding anything you may need to know about the house, as well as information on many of the local attractions. We were thoroughly impressed with all aspects of our interactions with the Owner! This was an absolutely enjoyable experience and we're already really looking forward to our next stay. I would highly recommend a stay at Skyview!!

Quiet Lakeside Setting in Cole Harbour
Beautiful place, awesome areas to explore and the best hospitality :)

We were pleased with the place we stayed, so beautiful and greeted by wonderful & friendly people. Sue & Irvin :) We walked in to a little greeting package in the kitchen and a binder with helpful information for during our stay. Sue & Irvin were very helpful in sharing directions to places we wanted to explore, suggestions on some we should go see as well. We also admired the passionate arts of numerous jewellery Sue works on relentlessly. Irvin also assisted us with the cooking of Lobsters and gave us pointers on how to eat them as it was a first for us ! Totally enjoyed our stay. We explored the burnt coat head, we visited Port 21 in Halifax, local museums and did some shopping, we went to PEI for the day and took some time to relax in the backyard to do some fishing! We definitely recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate to return for another trip :)see more
La Belle Brise
Perfect!

This home was perfect!!! Perfect location! Beautiful, quiet area with the mountains in one direction and the ocean in the other. We bought Lobster from the local Fisherman who dock in the tiny harbor right across from the house! The house is beautiful, immaculately clean and perfectly stocked. I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was. And, Paula was always easily accessible for questions. Thank you so very much for such a wonderful experience. We will absolutely be back!see more
Waterfront House
Great view of Saint Mary's Bay

We enjoyed our stay in Meteghan very much that we were not ready to leave. For me it was close to friends and family. Also Mavilette Beach and Smugglers Cove. Those I grew up seeing. As far as my USA family they really enjoyed the view and the sunsets. We were all amazed of the comfort of your home and everything you could image was available to use. We would definitely consider your rental again in the future. I would also recommend anyone to stay here.see more
