HOUSE WITH A BRIGHT, BREATHTAKING VIEW BY A PRIVATE BEACH AND WHARF

Walkerville House Rental Photos and Description

The house offers excellent living conditions for every season. In winter, it is especially cozy to sit by the fireplace, enjoying the warmth, and gazing out across the water.

We're often asked about mosquitoes. The seaside breeze drives the pesky beasts away. It is also to be noted that all houses have the luxury of window screens and sliding screen doors that can be closed. In the summer, the temperatures vary between 20-28 degrees Celsius in the day, and 12-14 degrees during the night. Near the coast, the wind can get a little brisk, so it is recommended to take a sweater along. In spring and fall the temperatures are a comfortable 15-18 degrees. With an average snowfall of 200cm, the island and the northern part of Nova Scotia offer good conditions for winter sports.

Winter dream: Cape Breton, because of the Highlands, has a real winter, especially in comparison to the southwest of Nova Scotia Island.

The appeal of this season is juxtaposition of ocean and snow.

Ski-lift Cape Smokey is about 1.5 hours away.

Drifting ice covers the turquoise blue of the sea and the landscape is bathed in strangely melancholic light.

You don't need to drive anywhere to partake in the winter sports, though. Cross-country skiing, hiking, and even driving Skidoos - a popular Canadian pastime - can all be done along the beach and through the woods right by the house. Sometimes, when it's really cold, you can walk on the ice over to the islands, but please check with the authorities to see if it's safe before trying this.

Climate: Winters in the Atlantic Provinces are, thanks to their proximity to the ocean, relatively mild. In Halifax, the average temperature is between 0C and -1C, and the maritime influence often leaves them without snow for the winter.

In East Cape Breton, winter is a couple degrees colder than in Halifax. With an average snowfall of 200cm, the island and the northern part of Nova Scotia offer good conditions for winter sports like downhill and cross-country skiing.

Before that, the so-called 'Indian Summer' transforms the countryside into an astonishing explosion of color. The exact timing is dependent on the specific weather conditions, and can easily vary from year to year, but this beloved season usually begins in the second or third week of September and lasts until the end of October.

History: There's a reason why you feel good on Cape Breton. The pioneers who set out from Europe a long time ago to make their fortunes here, not only built the Bluenose ship (after which the house is named), but also formed their very own city, today called Lunenburg. The French also had their influence on the region; having lent it it's special charm.

Nova Scotia has experienced history in the superlative. The Titanic sank on its journey to Newfoundland, Peggy's Cove, the most photographed fishing town in North America, bouquets serve as a constant reminder of the tragedy. There are thousands of shipwrecks before the cliffs. Only after the island's numerous lighthouses were built did the accidents subside.

The famous action thriller 'The Perfect Storm' took place off the coast of Nova Scotia and impressively gives a glimpse into the difficult life of the modern fisherman and his destiny.

The Dundee Resort has developed an excellent reputation as an ideal destination to spend an extended holiday or a golfing week-end. The main reason for the success has been the quality of service and the variety of activities available for adults and children alike. These include indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, walking trails, lakefront rec centre, tennis courts, marina, dining room, lounge, conference facilities, children's playgrounds and programs, volleyball courts and a picturesque and very challenging golf course.

Wild... exhilirating... an adventure... these are just a few of the adjectives used to describe this unique course. Dundee, with a SLOPE rating of 132 from the white tees, is second only upo the Highlands Links in difficulty.

Architect Robert Moote was presented with an awesome task and responded by carving a splendid Par 4 course from mountainous terrain. Every hole has its own character and requires accurate shots to narrow landing areas

  • Basic amount above for house plus 70 Can$ per person per week
    plus final cleaning 120 Can$

    Example (sorry, it sounds complicated, but we had to break down the price in order to be compatible with online booking systems):

  • We are proud beeing an official licened tourism operator with all facilities the department of tourism is asking for. This gives you security.
  • The use of certain recreational equipment, life vests, and fishing rods is included in the price. Ask for details as they depend upon insurance and season. Two high-end mountain bikes, for example, can be rented for CAN$ 10/day. The use of water sports equipment, such as catamaran and motor boat will be handled on an individual basis. We guarantee perfect functionality. A weak engine can cost lives, if it fails to see you or your children safely to shore in case of a sudden change of weather. A catamaran on the Atlantic requires exceptional sailing skill, including the ability to safely use the trapeze at speeds of up to 40km/h. For your safety, we do not want to make promises we might not be able to keep.

Notes:
The 'Bluenose' house was constructed from wood in the year 2000, and furnished in European style. You will find everything that you may need. A high quality kitchen, cupboards and floors fashioned out of wood -leaves capture every wish. The house is spacious and well lit. Large triangular windows facing the ocean and a living room with a cathedral ceiling let plenty of sunshine in. From the upstairs bedroom, which also has a small bath, you can see the ocean through the glass doors. The back section of the ground floor is a separate suite, complete with bath and shower, for your friends or children. In the bedroom on the left, there are bunk beds and a view over the estuary. The foyer on the right is separate, so that jackets, shoes and so forth can be stored. The kitchen is completely furnished with a large, American refrigerator, an oven, coffee machine and a bread baking machine. In the front of the house is a very attractive fireplace between the two large patio doors.
