Our holiday home is comfortable and quiet with a spacious 3/4 acre open garden and private sun deck. Situated in a small friendly community near long sandy beaches (good surfing facilities) and with nearby access to lakes and forest walks, yet convenient for all the amenities of the Halifax and Dartmouth metro area - shopping, cinemas, restaurants, bowling etc.
25 minutes from Halifax International airport.
This property was much less expensive than the one we stayed in on PEI the week previously, so I was fairly sure it would not meet the same standards, but was willing to accept it on the basis of value for money. However, it was apparent immediately that we would need to find somewhere else. The furniture and fittings are old and tired, worn out and dated. That would not matter if they were clean, but the smell and dampness of the house indicated otherwise. Curtains were hanging off their rails, carpets were stained, and we washed all crockery and cutlery before using it during the time we were there (less than 24 hours).I understand that the fridge (which did not work) has now been replaced. Bed linen was old and did not fit properly - fitted sheets sprang off the unprotected mattress; drawers still had debris left behind by former occupants, and the (two) new pillows I had requested were not enough for the four of us! The beds and carpets should probably be replaced and the whole house re-decorated before next season to ensure a better quality of accommodation than presently. The owner has responded sympathetically to our concerns, I am happy to say, and we are hopeful of some redress, but I cannot recommend this house in its current condition.
The house is 15 min from Dartmouth and Halifax and a rental car is needed in order to get around as there is not too much activity in the location of the house.
The house is big and enough space for a group of 7 to 8 people.
The air conditioning is not functioning properly - so in hot days it is a bit uncomfortable.
Located in a peaceful and quite neighborhood the house provides the comfort of home.
It has all the required items once needs for cooking, laundry etc. This is what we found very comforting. Heating in the house works perfectly in every room of the house.
Recommended for everyone who wants to be in Dartmouth and wants the benefits of having your own home on vacation.
The house was very spacious and warm when needed. It had most things you would need away from home.
If I was to criticise anything it would be that the lounge furniture was somewhat dated and mismatched - but you're only sitting in it so it's not a major issue.
Nous avons séjourné à Mineville NS une semaine. La maison est grande et confortable (nous étions 4 adultes, 2 adolescents et un enfant). Chacun avait sa chambre. C'est la campagne et la tranquilité. 2 suggestions: travailler sur l'humidité de la maison (odeur désagréable), et il n'y a pas de dépanneur à proximité. Propriétaire très ouvert et sympathique. Les accomodations très pratiques et fonctionnelles (laveuse sécheuse, lave vaisselle, etc.).
Merci pour ce beau séjour.
Ideally situated in a friendly community surrounded by woodland with local lake access, walks 'on the doorstep' and a large community playground/park area for children of all ages. The nearest beach is just 4 kms away and it is just 10 mins drive to the Cole Harbour/Dartmouth shopping malls, library and leisure centre (and ferry to Halifax).
Other Activities: canoeing/kayaking, ice-skating
