Xanadu is the closest you can be to the ocean without taking a cruise vacation. As you arrive on location, driving over the bluff, you are confronted with a panoramic view of water. This exclusive custom (ICF) constructed property is brand new with luxury appointments both in and out. Great for those who want to relax on the New Brunswick quarried slate patio watching I fishermen directly out front in the early morning, whales, seals and eagles during the day or Hawaiian like sunsets, shooting stars and satellites during the night. To the discerning chef, the kitchen has it all. If swimming is your thing, the water at the beach has been termed the 'Warmest North of the Carolina's'.

The area is great for the active individual interested in water sports, hiking at Cape George(lighthouse site which inspired Robert Munsch book of the same name) or cycling around 'The miniature Cabot Trail' of the Cape.

The town of Antigonish, site of Highland Games and St. FX University, is only 15 minutes away. Here you can access any amenities you may require. The town also hosts an 18 hole golf course. For the serious golf enthusiast, the world class Cabot Links Golf Course is a 2 hour scenic drive away.

The rate/wk in Canadian funds is $1795.00 plus $100.00 cleaning fee. The nightly rate during off season is $200.00.

Why Paul chose Town of Antigonish

My wife and I chose this location as it is only a 2 hour drive to Halifax Airport and it was one of the few properties on that shore where we could gain such access to the ocean with a house/cottage.

What makes this House unique

My wife and I both enjoy cooking and this was never far from our minds when we designed the kitchen for Xanadu. The area is open concept with high beamed ceilings and no matter where you stand, all you see is ocean. There are speaker systems both in and outside the living area, so you can have soft background music playing while you create dinner for the evening.

                                                                We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Xanadu by the sea, a beautiful location and equally beautiful home. The house was ideal for our needs and is so nicely decorated. The grill and appliances are all top notch and functioned flawlessly. Paul and Heidi were truly gracious hosts. We took the ferry and visited Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, drove along the shoreline of Bras d'Or lake on Cape Breton, and explored Antigonish and the lighthouse at Cape George. Our experience exceeded our expectations.

                                                                Without a doubt, one of the finest places I've ever seen. The site and the people are without peer. If I was restricted to one word to describe this Paradise, that word would be Peace.

                                                                The most awesome place in the world to vacation.

                                                                This place is the most relaxing setting I have ever been to. The owners have this place decorated perfectly and it is VERY clean with all modern appliances. I feel like I'm in heaven when I am there. Every morning we were fortunate enough to watch the lobster fishermen doing their job right in front of the cottage.

                                                                I live in Northern Ontario and the drive all the way to this property is worth every kilometer driven to get there.

                                                                We had the pleasure of meeting some of the owners family and they made our visit even that much more enjoyable. Very welcoming....

The cottage is in such a beautiful location, you cannot believe it until you see it. As soon as you opened the door, you felt at home. We certainly had heavy hearts leaving it and hope that we can come back one day. Every night we watched the sun set and every morning we watched the boats out front checking their traps. What could be more peaceful than that?! Truly amazing, thank you.
