Halifax House Rental Photos and Description

- 6 BR, 3BA, Sleeps 2-16, jacuzzi, deck

Peaceful beach retreat for 1-16, breath taking views, near city attractions We think that you, like all of our guests, will be over-whelmed by the spectacular ocean beach-front location; just 1 hour from Halifax but a world away in peace & the experience of the sea & nature (eagles, deer). Over 1000' of private frontage leading onto miles of all but deserted sand beach (great swimming, sea bass fishing, fossils, beach combing, walking, biking) & 60 acres of meadows & woodlands. Perfect for a private retreat or gatherings of family & friends. Breath-taking ocean views & sunsets & the roar of the surf from 4star executive house with ocean view deck, gourmet kitchen, 4BR, 2 BA, jacuzzi, recreation room, dishwasher, washer/dryer. Ocean-view summer house (deck, 3 piece bath, kitchenette). Many local activities: restaurants, shopping, golf, museums, tidal bore rafting, lobster suppers, traditional music, festivals, antiquing, horse back rides, winery tours, heritage houses, whale watching

Quality assurance:Licensed & inspected by NS govt: The Noel Shore, is rightly known as the 'undiscovered jewel' of Nova Scotia, the area offers unparalleled ocean views, miles of all but deserted beaches, the awesome spectacle of the world’s highest tides and a unique & traditional experience of Nova Scotia. We are delighted to share this peaceful 60 acres of 'heaven' with others who also want to walk gently on the earth & preserve its beauty & peace. All of our guest services emphasize care for the environment. Absorb the astounding views; listen to the roar of the surf from the world's highest tides; swim in the mellow salt waters of the Minas Basin; walk on the beach for miles in an area famous for fossils; explore the tidal pools, the woodlands & meadows; fish for sea bass; follow our Trout Pool Brook to the very special place where it burbles gently across a sandstone shelf & cascades in a beautiful little waterfall to the sea, watch the abundant wildlife (including deer, eagles, quail, pheasants, humming birds, osprey, owls)

Perfect for large gatherings of family and friends: Shore Haven is an ideal location for gatherings of family and friends for holidays or special occasions such as weddings, reunions, anniversaries. A unique experience of the sea and nature with lots of room to spread out, indoors and out. We are directly on the ocean (Minas Basin), with miles of hard red sand/pebble beach that can be walked or jogged (or carry your mountain bike down and ride for miles and miles) and at low tide there is a captivating vast sweep of sculpted, walk-able tidal sands. There is private access to the beach along a path to the shore and down a short flight of stairs (vertical height of 8 or 9 feet). Guests can relax with such activities as long walks on the beach in an area famous for fossils and rock specimens (including amethyst crystals), and ocean swimming. The beach, the sea, the woodlands, Evangeline and Trout Pool Brooks, the birds and animals and an amazing evening sky offer so many opportunities for being “re-created” and restored by nature.

Lots to do without leaving home: Endless hours of enjoyment & relaxation are available on the miles of beach, the meadows, brooks & woodlands on this peaceful 60 acres. Fabulous open-air and/or glassed-in sea view of the world's highest tides, indoor & outdoor games (croquet, badminton, volleyball, ping pong table). Fish for sea bass right on our beach and cook it up in the gourmet kitchen. Relax in the sun on the deck while listening to the roar of the surf. Wonder at the soaring eagles over-head, fly kites on the meadow, walk the beach for miles.

Great End of Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We had a very nice time at Shore Haven. We explored from Truro (went river rafting - highly recommended) to Wolfville and Cape Split (great hike – with wonderful rewarding view at end). The Noel Shore area suited our first driving visit to NS perfectly. Its very quiet but lots to see and do.

It's a very nice property and house. The peace and quiet was great and it was good to not be on top of other cottagers. The beach with its tides and cliffs were very inviting though have a good look at the tide clock on the wall before you go out - the tide comes in quickly.

Private, quiet and a great place to crash for a week or two.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
A wonderful time was had by all 12-14 folks at one time or another. The kitchen had all the utensils, dishes and cooking accessories needed for such a large group. Plenty of towels, bedding etc and nice to have the availability of a washer/dryer on site. We found the layout perfect to sleep those families with children yet the adults on their own had space to themselves. We so enjoyed the location, the ambiance of country living yet only an hour away from larger centres. Truly amazing that we could see the ocean up to the boundary of the property, then have a bon fire on the ocean floor when the tide was out. Carol was so helpful prior to our arrival, I had so many questions, she was always so patient. The TV could have been more up to date, but once we shown how to use it the children were amused for hours with their movies and DVD's. We visited Truro, Windsor, Halifax, Wolfville and of course the sites in the Bay of Fundy area. There were no unexpected charges or surprises from our original agreement, which was great. Thank you Carol and Sandy you were always there to help when we had any questions or concerns.

“We are just thrilled to be coming back to our “beach heaven” at Shore Haven for our fifth perfect family holiday. How we have all missed the beach, the peace, the views, the house, and everything. Can’t wait to return.”

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Shore Haven. We loved walking on the beach and picking up shells. The view from the house is fabulous. If we had to choose a place to stay all over again, this is the place we would pick. K. family, Ontario

Wonderful, relaxing stay!

If you are looking for relaxation, this is the place. Nestled among trees, with a sprawling lawn in the back and a beautiful view of the ocean, it was one of the best weeks I can remember. Strolling along the deserted beach in the day, with a deer at the top of the hill, then sipping a glass of wine and watching the georgeous sunset in the evening. When my days get hectic and busy, I think back to my amazing time at Shore Haven. I highly recommend it!
