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.

Review for Property ID 3597040

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were looking for an affordable place to serve as a base of operations whilst touring Halifax. Denise's property fit the bill nicely. It was immaculate and well-stocked with all the basic amenities. Her photos provide an accurate depiction of the property. Denise is not an obtrusive host and we did not communicate after our initial arrival, yet I sensed that she would have made herself readily available if we had any issues (which we did not). The only areas of potential concern that I can think of are that if your vehicle has very low ground clearance, the driveway is not paved and a little rough in places. That said, our rental vehicle was a Kia Accent and we had no problems. Secondly, the loft sits atop the garage, so one must climb a set of stairs to gain access. In closing, I can think of no better recommendation than to say that if I happened to revisit Halifax, I would not hesitate to rent from Denise again.

Clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

What a comfortable, cozy place to stay! The loft felt like we were staying in cottage. It was very clean and well supplied. Traveling with our almost-adult children, we had lots of room. The area was fairly quiet and neighbors were friendly. We were only about a half hour from Halifax and Dahlousie University, which was our main destination. We also spent time at Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, just about an hour away, and Martinique Beach about 20 minutes away. If you can't walk up stairs or are worried about driving on gravel roads, then this isn't the place for you. It wasn't a problem for us, but that would be a main concern for some. I would definitely consider staying here again, if we return to the area.

Acadian Restaurant
Great lunch spot!
Fancy Chopsticks
Lakeview Shopping Centre
Has everything you need from groceries, restaurant, gas , bank and Tim Hortons
Cicero's On The Water
The best restaurant on the shore! Reservations recommended in the summer months.
Tin Roof Cafe
Nice small lunch spot, a bit expensive and small portions but food was really good
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
