Located approx 30 min to halifax, this is a great spot to be near the ocean and city for an affordable price. There are 4 major beaches all within 20-45 min drive. Lawrencetown, Martinique, Clam Harbour, Rainbow Haven, Long Beach (East. Chezzetcook). Most of these beaches are very popular with the surfers. The city is a short drive away, downtown Halifax has wonderful restaurants , shops and tourist attractions.

About D. Bell

We are a average family with 2 kids and a dog :-). We moved backed to NS a couple years ago after being away for 15 years. We missed the ocean and home!!

Bought this property and thought this would make a great rental for those not wanting the expense of a hotel while visiting NS.

Why D. Bell chose Nova Scotia

This property is a home away from home for our guests. Everything is provided!! Linens, pillows, towels, blankets , beach cooler, beach towels, books, games, tea, coffee, sugar, the list goes on and on, all you need to bring are your personal items!

Wonderful Loft!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this adorable loft. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners were very kind and friendly. The location was great, very close to lakes, the beach and our favorite bakery, the Dobbit Bakehouse. We will definitely try to stay here again in the future!

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying at the loft for 4 nights. The loft was in a quiet neighbourhood with a beautiful view of the lake. It was very clean, cozy and contained all the necessities, including games and Lego building sets which my kids really enjoyed ! Thank you Denise for making our stay so enjoyable.

Cozy loft

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (3 teenage kids) spent 5 nights in this cozy loft a week ago. Denise and her family were lovely, it was a pleasure dealing with them. The loft is situated in the country side, however it is very close to everything. Halifax was only a 35min drive, Peggys Cove was an hour away, and the beautiful town of Lunenburg was and hour and a half. If you plan on going Whale watching, Lunenburg is the place to be. We saw the Blue Whale, which was over 80ft long, you can't beat that! There are 2 surf spots close by to the loft, Martinique beach and Lawrencetown. My family choose to surf Martinique and the experience was out of this world! It only cost us $150 to rent all the gear, that Includes wetsuits, for 4 hours. Most places you'd pay that per person!

I definitely recommend this loft to anyone who wishes to travel around, as everything you wish to see is close in vasinity.

My children are well travelled and they stated this was the best vacation we've ever been on. That speaks volumes!

Thank you Denise!!!

easy, convenient, comfortable and clean

  • 4 of 5

This was a great location to use as a base for exploring the area. Great beaches nearby, Halifax day-trip, as well as Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove. The owners were super friendly, easy-going, and helpful. The kids loved it! Especially the Legos that Denise loaned them for the week! :)

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful! The loft is EXACTLY what you see in the pictures- clean and comfortable. It actually seemed bigger than it looked in the photos. The beach down the road was great for our family. The drive into Halifax was about 35-40 minutes and we loved how we were so close to so many beautiful beaches. We LOVED clam harbour beach! We also went to a couple provincial parks all within 30 minutes away. Peggy's cove was more beautiful than what I imagined....

It was so nice to have the laundry on site- as we had our 11 month old with us. The breeze at night was so nice for sleeping and waking up to the view of the lake and beautiful trees everywhere was so calming. Denise and her husband were super friendly. It was a great spot for those looking to be out of the city. It felt like cottage country to us. We had a nice dinner beside the lake in Porter's Lake just down the road. There was a tim hortons, grocery, and liquor store super close which was also handy. Thanks for the great stay Denise!

Car: necessary

This is a 2 bedroom loft located 40 min from downtown Halifax. It is in a country setting perfect for a quiet relaxing get away, but close enough to the city to enjoy the sights.

It is 10 min drive to the Atlantic Ocean where you will find waves, sand and surfers!

A five minute walk away is a small swimming beach with lifeguard on duty in the summer months. Perfect for the little ones!o
