Richard and Dana were there to greet us, a lovely couple who really wanted us to have a great stay, they took care of lots of details and were very welcoming. We liked being a bit outside Halifax, could walk down the hill to the small local harbour and watch the boats from the many windows in this charming house. It's really 2 cottages joined up so there are lots of nooks and crannies, my husband hit his head on a couple of the lower ceilings but it added to the charm. My son loved to lie in bed and watch the stars out the skylight and the ocean and harbour out the window. Kitchen well appointed, everything airy and spacious and clean, beautiful front room to sit and relax. There are steps and stairs where you don't expect so it's not ideal for mobility issues but we give a big thumbs up to Whitecaps, it was a great place to stay. Local beach lovely and en route to the beautiful Peggy's Cove/Lunenberg/Chester shore, which made an awesome day trip. Groceries at Sobeys about 15 mins up the road, and Halifax about 25 mins away. Very comfortable and unique house.
