About Bruce

I built this house myself so it's a little different, lots of wood everywhere. Lots of windows with views and lots of light.

Bruce purchased this house in 1991

Why Bruce chose Nova Scotia

I grew up in this area so my whole life is by the ocean, when you see it here you will know why I'm still in the area, especially in the summer and fall. We are close to family restaurants and grocery shopping, about ten minutes away. It is really quiet here except for the sound of lawn mowers; no buses, sirens, beeping horns...

What makes this house unique

One of the most comforting things about the property is that the ocean is always there... in the summer you have your windows open in the night and you hear the lap of the waves on the beach; unbelievable. I also have veggie gardens everywhere and a small greenhouse that keeps me eating chemical-free food. You can go to the beach anytime in the daylight hours for free. It is quiet there most of the time, beautiful sand and clean water. The beach is divided by a spit of land and if you choose to go to the second part it is even more secluded. The Eastern Shore area is really beautiful, Acadian in nature, lots of nice spots to discover.

Cozy Cottage with all the Comforts!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our recent stay in NS - we were visiting friends in Halifax but wanted to balance out our trip by staying somewhere more tranquil and close to the beaches. We hit the jackpot with this rental. The house is cozy and the furnishings were comfortable. Every amenity was in good working order. The kitchen is gorgeous and according to my chef hubby it was "very workable". BBQ/grill worked excellent. The property is a short walk to Conrad Beach (just like the ad said) and a two minute drive or so to Lawrencetown Beach. We would definitely rent this property again and stay longer next time!

Close to the Beach, Close to Halifax

  • 4 of 5

What a great place for a holiday. It was clean and had all the things you would need or want for preparing food and having a relaxing time with a great view of the ocean. Lawrencetown Beach is just a 5 -10 minute drive away, and a more secluded beach, Conrad's is just a 10 minute walk (and within eyeshot of the kitchen and living room). If you want to spend some time in the city, a cab from the property to downtown Halifax is only $60. Great place!

We didn't want to leave !!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time spent with family at your beautiful home. And what a spot !! We could see, ear the ocean, walk 10 minutes to the beach ( almost private : known only by locals ) !!

This cottage was really comfortable, well appointed, very clean. Everything we needed was there.

Moreover, it was extremely quiet and private. And not far from Halifax ( 30 minutes ).

We would definitely recommend this rental.

This area is the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia, nearby there are many side roads that you can go on that will take you to beautiful rural settings beside the ocean. The Trans Canada Trail entrance is 0.5 kms from the house and you can hike or cycle for many kms to beaches etc. Lawrencetown Beach is 3 kilometers away; it is one of the most popular surfing beaches on the east coast of Canada ( you can rent surfing gear at the beach). Halifax is 35 minutes away, you can see whatever you wish to see in any modern city; theatre, many summer festivals, the famous Nova Scotia Tatoo, Citadel Hill, Titanic gravesite and museum. From Halifax you can take whale tours and go deep- sea fishing or a harbour cruise on a sailing ship or 'Harbour Hopper'.
