NEW CUSTOM SEASIDE YEAR ROUND GETAWAY WATCH WHALES SAILBOATS SUNSETS

Antigonish House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, Queen sofa bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Xanadu is the closest you can be to the ocean without taking a cruise vacation. As you arrive on location, driving over the bluff, you are confronted with a panoramic view of water. This exclusive custom (ICF) constructed property is brand new with luxury appointments both in and out. Great for those who want to relax on the New Brunswick quarried slate patio watching fishermen directly out front in the early morning, whales, seals and eagles during the day or Hawaiian like sunsets, shooting stars and satellites during the night. To the discerning chef, the kitchen has it all. If swimming is your thing, the water at the beach has been termed the 'Warmest North of the Carolina's'.

The area is great for the active individual interested in water sports, hiking at Cape George(lighthouse site which inspired Robert Munsch book of the same name) or cycling around 'The miniature Cabot Trail' of the Cape.

The town of Antigonish, site of Highland Games and St. FX University, is only 15 minutes away. Here you can access any amenities you may require. The town also hosts an 18 hole golf course.

My wife and I chose this location as it is only a 2 hour drive to Halifax Airport and it was one of the few properties on that shore where we could gain such access to the ocean with a house/cottage.

My wife and I both enjoy cooking and this was never far from our minds when we designed the kitchen for Xanadu. The area is open concept with high beamed ceilings and no matter where you stand, all you see is ocean. There are speaker systems both in and outside the living area, so you can have soft background music playing while you create dinner for the evening.

Beautiful ocean front home

My husband and I recently stayed at this beautiful ocean front home with the most spectacular view of the ocean you can imagine. The home had everything we needed for our stay and I can’t say enough about how helpful and welcoming Paul and Heidi were. We both hope to get the opportunity to stay here again.

Beautiful Oasis Right on the Ocean!

Our family stayed here for a week in August and very much enjoyed the home and property. The house is as close as you can get to the ocean, with spectacular sunsets and a fantastic private beach. Paul and Heidi have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and worry-free. We especially enjoyed spending time down at the beach, jumping in the waves and kayaking. The house is beautifully appointed, and we loved hanging out in the enclosed patio enjoying a glass of wine and listening to music. Our four-year-old loved the outdoor shower and watching the hummingbirds. Thank-you to Paul, Heidi, Sydney and Bella for your hospitality!

Absolutely Beautiful!! Wish we were still there!

We have traveled all over the USA and Europe and this is one of the most beautiful places we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. It far exceeded our expectations. The sea extends from left to right and as far out as you can see. The rocky shore is great and there are woods with a stream close by. The house itself is beautiful inside and out and is clean, comfortable, stocked with anything you may need, and well appointed with its many beach themed decorations. The owners are the best! We feel like we have new friends in Canada. We give this property our highest rating!!

Beautiful Spot!!!

We recently stayed the week at this home, and can't say enough about the property or its owners. You really only need to bring food, clothes and yourself. The views are unmatched, it felt like you were at the end of the earth while watching the ocean, sunsets and stars. Paul, Heidi and Sydney were so welcoming, and they really provided everything you need and more at the property.

We went down to the shore, but weren't adventurous enough for a swim or a ride in the sea kayaks. We drove 10 minutes to Arisaig beach, which worked better for my 4 and 1 year old children, as the beach is nice sand and the water fairly shallow. We are already talking about a return visit in another few years.

Counting the days......

My trip to Nova Scotia is over but the memories are just starting. This is where my blood is, where my roots are and I try to visit every year. This was our first time at Xanadu. I miss downtown Antigonish and the Highland Games, I miss all the friendly faces as I strolled downtown and poked in and out of the adorable shops. I miss running and walking on the winding roads around the cottage. Next time I will bring my bike! I miss the first time we walked into the cottage....that "OMG!! This is gorgeous!" feeling. I won't go into details - a picture is worth a thousand words. I miss sitting on the back porch of Xanadu with my morning coffee or at night with a glass of wine as I watched the incredible sunset with music playing in the background. I miss the feel of those incredible bedsheets on my skin! I miss walking down the stairs to the Northhumberland Strait to lounge on a noodle with my face turned up to the sun as my kids kayaked along the rocky shore. I miss playing Scrabble with my kids 'til 2am our first night in the beautiful sunroom off the side of the cottage which my kids now affectionately call the "Scrabble Room". I miss the smile on my face every time I drove down that dirt road to Xanadu as I knew what was awaiting me. I miss the bonfires we had on our private beach with s'mores and family. Because the owners were so accommodating with my travel schedule, I had the good fortune to spend some time with Paul & Heidi and they were kind enough to invite us over for dinner....a dinner that was out of this world. Talk about genuine people! We've been home for almost two weeks now and I have realized one important thing - I miss Xanadu just as much as I miss Nova Scotia. I will do everything I can to make it back! Thanks, Paul & Heidi :).
