About Doug Fawthrop

I have been involved in more than twenty businesses since moving to Nova Scotia in the 70”s to enroll in the Dalhousie University MBA and Law program. Sales, marketing and financial management with an emphasis on customer service has been my focus. I have always liked the people part and service component of my various interests.

I was Managing Director of White Point Beach for more than thirty years which I truly enjoyed. I left in 2009 to do some things I have always wanted to do and have continued with my marketing and financial consultancy.

My pride and joy are my family including four children and five grandchildren.

I have always been an active volunteer within business associations, communities charities and the church, and continue to so.

I enjoy assisting guests with their various requirements

Doug Fawthrop purchased this estate in 1992

Why Doug Fawthrop chose White Point Beach

I built the house for my family during my involvement with White Point Beach Resort.

My family grew up here and still uses the home on a regular basis. Friends, associates and their families are repeat customers. Since moving to Halifax it has become a retreat for my wife and I. Truly a place to get away from it all. The personal memories, seclusion and privacy, combined with its proximity to the ocean and lifestyle amenities make my White Point house very special for me.

What makes this estate unique

My guests have highlighted the privacy, proximity to the ocean, White Point Beach Resort, lifestyle and visitor attractions as the reasons for becoming repeat guests at

Seascape Retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is always so great to get back to Nova Scotia and White Point is our favorite place.

The weather was good and the boys played on the beach for hours.ars.

We did spend a day in Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. We werre hoping to get to Ross farm but did not have time.

Everything was very comfortable as always.

We ate mot of our meals on the deck. The view just gets bettr and better.

We appreciate the comfort and privacy. It is just so restful.

We did some stargazing one night for the northern lights but we were not as lucky as two years ago. There really were a lot of stars.

hoping to get there for Cristmas or March Break

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The large, yet cozy family home is welcoming and bright. I've returned twice since my first stay and no matter the season, each visit is just as enjoyable as the one before it. Perfect for a couples weekend, as well as a small group/family vacation, as I've done both. The house is conveniently equipped with everything one would need. The location is private, yet close enough to many amenities and of course the beach!

I would very much recommend this rental to anyone!

Great location next to beach and golf

  • 5 of 5
This property is conveniently located with all of the modern conveniences and amenities that we require for a vacation getaway. It is just a short walk to the beautiful White Point Beach and White Point Beach Resort. There is also the White Point Golf Course just minutes away.

The property is a great base for day excursions along the South Shore and to the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.

We found the property to be very clean and well maintained. It would work well either for couples or a family.

We look forward to our next visit!
