OCEAN SURF COTTAGE - REBOOT YOUR SOUL

White Point Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 2-4)

OCEAN SURF COTTAGE is a slice of oceanfront paradise - a romantic seaside getaway in the unspoilt community of Summerville Centre overlooking Port Mouton Bay. To the south-east are the open Atlantic and Port Mouton Island. A few minutes walk to the west lies the mile-long sandy beach of Summerville Provincial Park and the delectable Quarterdeck Grill seafood restaurant. To the south, across the bay, historic lighthouses, fishing boats and more sandy beaches await. If you are looking for the sights and sounds of the ocean right at your door, without giving up 'the comforts of home' this premium destination may well be the best on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.

Within Walking Distance: Start your day on the deck overlooking the waves. It spans the full width of the house with 350 sq feet fully enclosed, insulated and heated for year round use. Facing south west, it gets lots of sun even in winter. Retractable electrically operated awnings together with the latest in mini-split air-conditioning technology keep the house cool and provide welcome shade during the hotter days of summer.

After breakfast the sandy mile-long beach of Summerville Provincial Park is a six minute walk away. Here, aside from having a leisurely stroll on the sand, you may rent a kayak or surfboard then enjoy one of the 'Taste of Nova Scotia' featured restaurants - the popular Quarterdeck Grill.

At the far end of the beach, the Broad River presents a hiking opportunity: it is crossed by a trestle bridge of the abandoned Halifax to Yarmouth railway, which is now maintained as a trail through rugged, forested countryside.

If you enjoy clambering over rocks, that is also a great way to explore the immediate shoreline on which the house is located.

Within a Fifteen Minute Drive: Head south down Hwy 103 through Port Mouton to one of Nova Scotia's finest beaches: Carter's Beach. With a parking area for all of fifteen cars (and rarely full), it is a series of three crescent shaped beaches with offshore islands reminiscent of the Caribbean (minus the palm trees of course). If you like deserted, this is it, though it has become a favorite stopover for sailboats and the occasional tall ship.

Head east 5 minutes along the Lighthouse route and you'll find White Point Golf Club.

Continue to the Town of Liverpool, one of the oldest towns in the Province. Noted for its colorful maritime history, it is a treasure trove of historic homes, many of which date back to when captains of industry and of the sea vied for the most impressive homes. One of them is now a fascinating museum of local history.

Within a Forty-five Minute Drive: To the south (a twenty-minute drive) is the wild rocky coastline and surrounding natural splendour of the Seaside Adjunct of Kejimkujik National Preserve and its seal colonies. A 'must sea'.

In the opposite direction, the Town of Bridgewater sits on the LaHave River. There are wonderful scenic drives on both sides of the river down to the sea, from where you can follow the coast by road. Have lunch at the LaHave Bakery where they bake their own breads and pastries and continue on to the LaHave Islands, Crescent Beach and Petite Riviere.

Just beyond Bridgewater are quaint Mahone Bay and Unesco World Heritage sight, Lunenburg. The latter is home to the Bluenose a beautiful tall ship in port for daily excursions.

Ocean Surf Cottage is owned by a semi-retired couple who moved to Nova Scotia from Ontario after careers in the business, education and civil service fields. We are now enjoying life in an unhurried, tranquil part of the world that is very close to nature.

Jeffrey Percy purchased this cottage in 2005

We were on vacation in Nova Scotia and just happened upon this oceanfront property which was on the market. It was only after buying it that we discovered its wonderful surroundings - miles of empty and near empty beaches, hiking trails, and the ever-changing ocean right on the doorstep. Not to mention endless interesting drives on twisty roads to scenic area attractions.

TRANQUILITY GALORE

  • 5 of 5
Special places leave bookmarks in one’s book of memories.
Ocean Surf Cottage is one such place.

Unique in its location with a view seldom found.

What makes it stand out is the outstanding rock landscaping done to the exterior of the house that hugs and shoulders the wave line. Seldom could you find a location fit for a movie scene such as this. Placing a concrete statue of a surfer searching for a wave looking into the horizon, in the right spot dramatizes the Imax vision concept of this unit. You could simply spend hours listening to the waves pounding the rocks on the patio grilling you seafood.

The house in itself has been modified from its original design embracing the patio within a glass cladding to embrace the outside placing the inside out into the scene. Fit with all that you need, you could spend weeks without wishing to leave short of the need for groceries that could be brought in with a 10 minute drive to Liverpool. With all necessities provided and air-conditioning for the summer the owners have provided for your rest and calm.

Halifax is a 2 hour drive away so if the intention is to be near a downtown, this is not the place. However, this is the place to tear you off the hectic daily routine into a restful relaxing soul nourishing locale. With sand beaches, park trails nearby. It is a good location for outdoor activities with 1-2-3 hour excursions to neighbouring little coves and villages.

A highly recommended unit for those desiring rest and relaxation.

EXCELLENT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

"If excellence is in the details then we have had a truly excellent experience at Ocean Surf Cottage. Thank-you for the most relaxing home away from home ever!! Hugh and Bonnie, Halifax NS

Owner's Response: There are a great many excellent vacation options within Canada's Maritime Provinces and lots to choose from in accommodations. We take pride in being a repeat destination for some of those making, perhaps the best-informed choices for Atlantic Canadian holidays: the people who live here already. We are looking forward to welcoming Bonnie and Hugh back to Ocean Surf Cottage come August,

ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING!!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely breathtaking. The weather was 17+ degrees (Celsius, about 65F) in October and we were surrounded by incredible views. We were looking for a relaxing getaway and that is exactly what we received. The cottage is beautiful and had everything we needed. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise. Nicola and Paul, Riverview, NB

Owner's Response: Thank-you Nicola and Paul. It's great to be right on the ocean. Regardless of the time of year, and the weather, it is always a treat. We get so upset if we are away and miss a storm.

GREAT HOUSE, EVEN BETTER LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful house, immaculate, roomy, very nice kitchen and living areas, the porch is fantastic and the deck is great too. The location really sets it apart. We stayed here in October when it was starting to get just a little chilly. During the day we'd eat breakfast on the porch or lunch on the deck before heading out to sight see. None of the pictures do the place justice, on a sunny day it is absolutely breathtaking. At night we sat in the comfy chairs on the porch, opened a few of the many sliding doors to let the sound of the water in, poured ourselves a drink or hot chocolate, and watched the lighthouses blink on the distant shores. Even when the water was calm and just gently lapping on the shore you could hear the sound with a few doors cracked open, it was as relaxing a spot as I've ever visited. Once you head out, wherever you are along the coast, when its time for dinner just find the nearest town and you are sure to also find a seafood restaurant with a deck overlooking the water. The home itself is very well decorated and they provided a comprehensive list of local towns, attractions, and insights you could only get from a local resident. This was a great place and we would definitely stay here again if we are fortunate enough to return to Nova Scotia.

Owner's Response: It is always rewarding to hear how much our visitors enjoy their time at Ocean Surf Cottage as they explore the beautiful Nova Scotia coast. It is also true that pictures only capture a snippet of the spectacular vista that awaits us each morning we awake and look outside. On the bright side , that means no-one should be disappointed.

AMAZING LOCATION AND FANTASTIC PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
An absolutely unbeatable location RIGHT on the beach! Fantastically equipped, spotlessly clean, and well-maintained property with two big and comfy beds. Jeff provides all the information you need, is easy to get hold of, will help you out with anything, and is just fantastic to deal with. BBQ dinners on the deck right next to the ocean is a must every night you don't feel like eating out.

Great location for walking, relaxing, and serves as a great base for exploring the south coast. If the weather plays ball there's plenty of opportunity for surfing at Summerville Centre or head up and around Western Head. Don't think about it, just contact Jeff, book and then go and have a fantastic time.

Owner's Response: Wow. Great review. Thank-you.

Ocean Surf Cottage was our first Nova Scotia home - we uprooted and moved 1200 miles for the opportunity to live here on the ocean. Being only a 15 minute drive from our house in town, the cottage is always ready for us. It remains as well furnished and equipped (minus the personal stuff) as it always was. Right down to the egg cups, garlic press and all those wine glasses.

The Cottage gives visitors the opportunity to experience what it is like living on the ocean in an unspoiled natural setting. Judging by this, and previous comments, they seem to like it.

SO MUCH MORE...

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week at your fabulous cottage - so much more than the typical "cottage for rent"!

We came for R&R and that we certainly had. As was already said "thank-you for sharing your piece of paradise with us".

JUST DOWN THE ROAD FROM QUARTERDECK GRILL

'The oceanside view of surf and sand is delicious ... the food amazing.' Dine inside or outside on the Grill's all-weather covered deck. Located on spectacular Summerville Beach, a mile long stretch of white sand, Quarterdeck Grill is open from Mother's Day to Thanksgiving. As for the food, let your palate decide. Try sumptuous fresh lobster tails stuffed with scallops and shrimp or their specialty “Planked Atlantic Salmon”, prepared over an open firepit. The Quarterdeck has a reputation as the Sandy South Shore’s finest for fresh seafood, great steaks, and tempting desserts, plus a cellar full of wines!

Other Activities: Health Beauty Spa, kayaking, surfing
