Executive -Life Sciences

We have updated the property over the years, so it now has a modern touch but still feels historic. The house is perfectly situated facing south west over the Atlantic. Halifax is about 30 mins drive.

EXCELLENT ALL ROUND

  • 5 of 5
This property is beautiful. Even though we visited in the middle of winter the property still felt cosy and warm. The property has all you could need for a holiday of any length and the owner is very helpful with nothing being too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend this property to all we know.

BRIGHT, CHARMING AND RELAXING, A PERFECT GET-AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the good fortune to spend a relaxing week in this bright charming Halifax area cottage located in East Chezzetcook. We found it to be everything and more than advertised. Nestled in a beautiful nature filled setting, the cottage is situated on a well maintained water front property. The cottage was spotless and in good repair. A wonderful mix of cozy century home living, coupled with the luxuries of updated appliances within a fully stocked kitchen. In addition the bathroom has a lovely soaker tub, and the master bedroom is spacious with four windows providing three different directional views. The dining room has a traditional character, and the living room is a perfect comfy place to read, gab or watch a movies. The surrounding area is a nature lover’s dream, yet amenities are also close at hand. The owner AJ is very prompt in all his communications. We found him to be both personable and well organized. Overall we would not hesitate to return.

RUNNER'S PARADISE

Runner's paradise
  • 5 of 5
The Chezzetcook vacation rental turned out to be a great decision for my end-of-winter working sabbatical. Every day was a runner's paradise up Conrod's Settlement (a beautiful 6 km, or 7.5 km if you include Mosher Street in your circuit). Just lock the door, leave the key in the secure key box, and go. The air is full of oxygen, coming off the ocean. In the evening, I would always step outside and just breathe in the clean ocean air. My total mileage is already over 200 km, en route to marathon fitness level, and off to a great start. Thank you for making everything so easy and convenient. The only reason I ever left the cottage was to pick up groceries. It just didn't make sense to leave when everything was so perfectly comfortable and peaceful. Thank you so very much for such a wonderfully productive month and a half!

OUR VISIT TO NOVA SCOTIA

  • 5 of 5
This summer we were fortunate enough to discover a wonderful rental home for our visit with family in Nova Scotia. Located in Chezzetcook, it combined the convenience of being relatively close to all the amenities of the cities of Halifax and Dartmouth, with the quaint "by the sea" feeling of the coastal landscape.

We were delighted with the open, airy feeling of the house. Without losing the original character of the century old home, it nicely blended it with upgrades and modern conveniences to create a residence which was simultaneously fresh and clean, and functional. It had all the extras one would require while away, including higher end appliances, laundry facilities and a well equipt kitchen. The computer made available for our use allowed us to keep in touch with relatives and research the many activities in the area.

The setting was wonderful. The house was located right on the shoreline, so we were able to sit on the deck and enjoy a morning coffee in the coolness of the Atlantic air. Never too hot, it was relaxing to be able to awake tin the morning, snuggled under the covers in a large, comfortable bed and see the brilliant orange of the sunrise visible through the window. I appreciated the fact that some meals could be prepared on the BBQ which kept the kitchen from overheating. The place generated a very peaceful, slow paced feeling for us while we were there for our vacation.

A BEAUTIFUL WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect vacation fo me and my wife. The Cottage was clean and in a quiet, serene location. The inlet area is just awsesome. Just sitting on that cute little patio with coffee in the mornings is the most peaceful, fulfilling experience. There is a supermarket just minutes away. We both had such a wonderful time there. A. J. is as nice and acomodating as he can be. truly an experience I will always remember.
