Stayed: June 2008
We spent 7 days from June 21 to 28. The place is nice, clean.
All the element that would make your stay comfortable for a modern living were present, however, it is more like a simple home rather than luxury resort.
The only draw back is water. You cannot do multiple functions with water at the same time. One has to choose between flushing the toilet or having showers or doing laundry. Overusage will cause the water pump to shut down, and fortunately the housekeeper will show up within 20 minutes to reset the water pump. We got into the problem a few times, but taking into consideration that we were 14 people, old and young, it was not a surprising occurance.
Location location location. I felt that we found a great place judging from the geographic area. We were 15 minutes away from Liverpool, which is a relatively large town ( from Nova Scotia standards). Driving up and down the southeastern shore of Nova Scotia from there was a perfect location. This place is truly a perfect all purpose vacation base.
By the way, for those that cannot relinquish city and internet....there is Wifi access, there is satelite TV, pool table, fully modern kitchen. Being able to drink a hot cup of tea coming from a modern kitchen while watching wild rabbits running, or 5 minutes walk to a beautiful sand beach, that is the best of the two worlds.
I will defintely recommend it. And I would thank the owner of this property for providing an excellen vacation house.

Owner's Response: Thank you to this guest for the recommendation and we are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Beach Haven. We do look forward to sharing this lovely spot with many more happy guests. As stated by this, and many other guests, this truly is the best of both worlds, surrounded by the sea with a lovely beach, but at the same time all of the south shore villages and towns are at your finger tips, if you chose. Part of this fabulous country ambiance is the use of country water and septic systems. We appreciate that this can sometimes be a challenge and do our best to assist our guests by providing written instructions, spare water and our housekeeper to help. In our 5 seasons of sharing this rural paradise with guests, (over 100 rental weeks, and more than 600 happy guests) this is only the fourth time that over-use of water has led the pump temporarily shutting down. The other times were in our first season as we learned how to prepare guests for rural water use. There is ample water at Beach Haven but like all rural areas moderate use at any one point in time is required, the price of sharing in this peaceful paradise.
