Peggy's Cove House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps a maximum of 8 very comfortably

Welcome to Sunrise at Sol Point.

If rest and relaxation is what you crave do not look any further. The South Shore of Nova Scotia is the perfect antidote for the stresses of urban life.

The property is located in the authentic working fishing village of West Dover. Just 1 hour south of the Halifax International Airport and only 35 minutes from downtown Halifax. The famous Peggy's Cove lighthouse is within walking distance at less than 3 miles.

This converted and completely renovated former fish plant sits on a cliff directly on the edge of the ocean. At high tide gentle waves will lapp the piers the living/great room section of the house sits on.

You will arrive down a long private driveway off a dead end road to total privacy with the best water views from virtually every room, deck or patio. The only passers by are the local fishermen who still go out daily to check their lobster traps and nets. Their fishing boats sail by just a hundred feet from your living room window

Guestbook comments from the owner
October 2007

What a beautiful home, what spectacular scenery, what warm and gracious caretakers. This part of our East Coast journey will definately be a highlight for all the above reasons.

One of my favorite days was Friday when Barry and I stayed behind, the wind blew, the waves rolled and crashed and the rain sheeted the windows. I curled up on one of the big chairs and read a book.

Wonderful!

A GEM ON THE NOVA SCOTIA COAST

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, together with 3 other couples, rented Sunrise at Sol Point for a week this summer. We all had high expectations and these were greatly surpassed. The gorgeous home is even better than described, and the lovely pictures don't do the property justice. It is spacious, clean, and wonderfully equipped with new stainless steel appliances (including a wine fridge!). The views are spectacular. The building has been lovingly rebuilt to resemble the original fish plant, so it fits the local ecology to a tee. There's lots to do in the area - we spent happy days hiking, sightseeing (Peggy's Cove is next door; Halifax, Grand Pre, and Lunenburg are easy drives), cycling and kayaking. We enjoyed seeing bald eagles, seals, herons, and other wildlife. We would definitely recommend this spot to all who love spectacular coastal settings and the highest quality accommodations. And by the way, there is a cable internet connection that was not advertised, so came to us as a pleasant suprise.

A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home with all the amenities you could ever want. Everything in this home is top of the line. I enjoy cooking so for me the kitchen was to die for. Our four teenage grandchildren
were thrilled to be there during the hurricane, not too happy with losing our lights but that
was to be expected.
A special thanks to caretakers Frida and Lawrence for all their help.
Hope to return again.

Thanks,
The Kennedy's

SUNRISE AT SOL POINT IS THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
We stayed three nights at Sunrise at Sol Point and absolutely loved this home. The location on the water was incredible with the most fabulous views. Sunrise in the morning was breath-taking. The house was beautifully furnished and completely equipped from the kitchen with everything you could imagine to the bathrooms with soaps, shampoos, and blow dryers. We were totally spoiled and wished we lived close enough to come back often. We highly recommend Sunrise at Sol Point.

WHEN CAN WE RETURN?

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and another couple rented this property for a fall getaway! It was so much more than we expected! We really felt that Wilco opened his home to us - not just a rental property. We cooked in several times and the fully stocked kitchen was great! They had everything that we needed to cook mussels and lobster and there was room for 4 cooks in the kitchen at the same time! The view was spectacular, the house was very clean, and we were all wishing that we were able to stay much much longer! Thank you!

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! Pictures can't really do it justice. Eight of us stayed here in early July and really enjoyed ourselves. The views are terrific and the house is a great place to just hang out and relax. The owners are very easy to work with and the property managers were very helpful. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We will definitely consider coming here again in the future. Thanks!

We had a fabulous stay at Sunrise at Sol Point this past summer. We were amazed at how beautiful every thing was, the home, the scenery, it was absolutely wonderful and hard to leave behind! It was all we could have asked for to enjoy a vacation on the east coast. To see the whale and the seal come in for a visit was a highlight as well as visiting Peggy's Cove frequently. Thanks to Freda for suggesting the local lobster, it was such a fun experience! She was so nice and helpful, thanks so much Freda! We hope to return some day to your amazing property.

The house is situated on the edge of the Peggy's Cove preservation area. There is no development between West Dover and the Lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. The shoreline with its bold ocean views, rugged granite cliffs and raw nature make this area a perfect place to walk or hike. Nature lovers will be amazed by the thousands of pitcher plants growing in boggy spots everywhere.

Come and experience what most of the lighthouse visitors never see.
