To say "we love our vacation" is an understatement! Since my cousin madde all the arrangement, we had no ideas what to expect--he is very well travelled and has good taste so my husband and I trust him completely--all we know was it's a big house by the water. When we turned into the driveway, my first thought was "so lovely and quiet, perfect", as we started walking toward the back yard, to the boat dock, the view just took our breath away!
I was thinking even if the house is not as we expected inside this back view is totally worth it! I have to admit that prior to our road trip, I didn't have time to pull up the pictures of the house--extremely busy at work--but again, I trust my cousin choice and taste so I never worried about accommodation.
The house is awesome, mostly brand new and well kept, everything we need was there. We couldn't think of anything that we needed and they didn't have. The Whitmans were such thoughtful people and very kind, they made available everything they have for our use--too bad none of us know how to sail as there was a gorgeous sail boat sitting in the front!
The house has automatic code lock, so one night we came back from an outing and accidentally locked out, we call the Whitmans and within 35' they were there to rescue us!
The house accommodated 9 adults and one toddler (our family) very comfortably. There's a little charming cottage in the back that could have accommodate another couple. We wish that we have another week to spend there. I can just on the back porch to read for hours and watch the sun set.
The house is located about 10' away from Peggy's Cove Light House--famous attraction, and 35' from Halifax. About 30' away (can't remember highway's name) there's a series of beautiful beaches--we especially love Baywater Beach, even on a cool cloudy day, absolutely breathtaking! You can buy fresh lobster (fairly cheap around $7.50/lb) from a dock only 5-7' away; also several grocery stores nearby, very convenience.
We totally fell in love with Peggy's Cove! This is the best family vacations I've had ever! We hope to come back at the same time next year,!
