We lived at this beautiful home for two years, moved to California and now we can share it with you. House is 11 years old, Cape Cod style, 50 feet from ocean where sand can be found based on the tide and if you are lucky on your visit. The sand is always available, but you might have more then normal rocks present based on timing. A big rock is present on the left of the house where waves hit it on stormy nights and days, where the water will fly 20 to 30 feet in the air. Seals can be seen from the deck and lots of Ocean Lones can be heard on the most beautiful of sunsets. We are located right off of Lobster Bay, Lobster fishing Capital of Canada. If Lobster is your deal, you can go to the many local fisheries 5 mins from the house, where you can get locally caught lobster all year round, cash is required. If local fish is your game, then you can drive over to the locally called West Side or Lower West Pubnico, and you can find a wide selection of local fish from the local fisheries. We have an old railroad walking trail just 2 mins down the road and and old lighthouse in the cove around the same location with access to a fishing wharf. We have many white sand beaches around the Barrington Passage and Cable Sable Island, which is only a 20 min drive from the house.
We have the following stores within 20 mins; No Frills, 24/7 Sobey's, Shoppers Drug Mart, Tim Horton's, McDonald's and lots of great local restaurants that feed you locally caught fish/crab/lobster daily. Refreshments are in the same location, we have Liquor & Beer Store. If you feel that isn't enough, you can go to Yarmouth where they have everything you might need and more.
Your closest neighbors is across the street, a local fisherman and his Grandson which lives beside him. You can see the cars as they drive by, we don't have any trees or shelter except the deck veranda. The neighbors driveway can be seen as part of the picture called "Beautiful Sunset - One example". The owner across the street is always home, but is not very mobile, so you won't see him during your whole visit. His Grandson is here and there, but mostly is enjoying his camp.
Your accommodations has all 3 year old chrome appliances, Dishwasher, Induction Stove / Oven single unit and a Bosch Refrigerator with Ice Maker and Water filtration system. The kitchen is missing cupboard doors, due to this you can physically see all of the dishes and piping under the main sink. If you have really little ones, this might be an issue as all items are exposed and within reach. The sink and faucets where just put in before we left in December of 2013. We have pots and pans, frying pans, all dishes, cups & utensils, everything you need from a eating and cooking perspective. We have a two year old LG washing machine, currently don't have a dryer but do have floor cloths hanging system if washing your clothes is necessary. We are in the process of purchasing a dryer and it might be there upon your arrival. We have all the blankets you will need with a 47 inch TV, Blue Ray Player with about 30 blue ray movies and over 600 DVD's. The Master Bed Room has a 6 by 10 foot window for viewing the ocean, and if you like you can listen to the ocean with the windows open during the night. It also has a 4 by 4 foot shower stall and a jacuzzi tub with more then enough room for two Adults to enjoy after the kids are asleep. In this room we have one queen size bed with dressers. We have no cable TV and no telephone, so please bring your cell, the reception is good. So for those that don't need to be plugged in this is a great location to turn it off. We supply hand dish soap, washing machine soap, dishwasher soap, towels, face/hand cloths, kitchen cloths and dish towels as part of your stay. We have a cleaning service come and replace all items upon your visit before arrival.
We have one futon mattress in our upstairs playroom, which is bigger then our master bedroom, where you can sleep two kids comfortably. This room also has kids toys for kids between the ages of 4 to 10 and a floor style air hockey set. We have a loft bed, which our kids use to sleep together in sometimes, this use to be our sons room. One double bed in my 10 year old girls pink room which can sleep one comfortably. You can put air mattresses in the playroom, as well as the room above the garage which could sleep another 4 people. We have another room beside the main side door that could also hold another guess and air mattress. Above the garage is another queen size bed with a 3 piece washroom, that was just recently remodel, this would be perfect for another couple to have privacy.
We have one Muskoka chair and 5 plastic chairs for the fire pit and lounging around, they can be found in the garage. If you need a special requests, please let us know before hand as part of your booking..

My boyfriend and I only stayed for one night bit we are already planning a return trip in the near future. It was a gorgeous home with and even more beautiful view. Very clean and welcoming. It's a long drive from the city(Halifax)but well worth it !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. The space itself is spacious and well equipped. The views from the deck were amazing. Tim was always very prompt in responding to any queries we had. The Pubnico area is interesting and fun and well worth seeing. We didn't miss cable or the internet. Our cell phones worked well in the house. Great place to stay!!! Read more
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, you are always welcome and hope to see you next year. Please provide any negative feedback, as I can't get better in providing excellence without it.

The house is beautiful,with everything you need,with a great view. We took a nice walk down to the rocky beach,and found lots of shells. The house is kept spotlessly clean,with a nice personal touch. Having no internet made it a nice stress free getaway, and there are some board games and hundreds of dvd's to choose from.yarmouth is only a short drive away,and it's a beautiful area to explore, with fantastic beaches and harbors. We would definitely book again. Read more
