About the property

Peaceful getaway, minutes to walk to the beautiful Crystal Crescent Beach.

Very private home, on 2 acres located on a secluded peninsula. For a 2 guest group we offer the suite, and for a larger group of 3-4 guests, we offer the suite together with an additional bedroom.

However, if there are young children and the parents want to have them close the suite has a pull-out couch. The suite and the additional bedroom are located upstairs, next to each other. For costs, please check the online quote, based on the total number of guests.

The suite is a spacious combined living and sleeping area with beautiful water views. Amenities: a queen size bed, a queen size pull-out couch, dining area for 4, living, well equipped kitchen (guests provide their meals), marble bathroom with soaking tub and shower, LCD Smart TV and free wi-fi internet. The additional bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed and has its own bathroom with shower.

The house and the main access are shared with the owner.

Free laundry and supplies on the main floor of the house.

Access to the large deck with BBQ and outdoor dining table. Ample parking space.

The property has its own 350 feet of private pebble beach. The water is clear, it is a nice place to swim or kayak. Spectacular hiking trails similar to Peggy's Cove and the tropical looking Crystal Crescent Beach are within minutes to walk. 20 minutes to drive to Halifax and shopping centers.

Wonderful Accommodations!

Loved our stay at Sandro Creek. Was a great location. Many tourist attractions within a couple of hours drive. George provided great directions to find the property!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this location for three nights. At first we were caught off guard as we didn't realize we were actually sharing the house and main access with George's family as we thought we'd have a private entrance. However, despite this, our stay turned out to be one of the more beautiful locations we stayed during our Maritime trip and we had no issues at all coming and going to our suite. The suite offers everything imaginable so there's nothing to want for and even having the availability of laundry was a bonus. Definite see was the Crystal Crescent beach and hike which we would recommend to anyone staying in Sambro. Thank you to George!

George was a very gracious host and willing to share his thoughts on where we should visit. If you choose Georges studio suite you will not be disappointed. All guest must go to the beach located less than a mile from the property, this is a "must see location."

Beautiful place!

George and Juliana have a beautiful home and the apartment is a wonderful oasis upstairs. Gorgeous views, and close to a wonderful beach. George and Juliana were very welcoming and the place was immaculate when we arrived. We will definitely be back!

Tranquil & modern, naturally beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This vacation suite is brand new, very clean and well appointed for a relaxing self catering holiday. It is a 1/2 hour drive outside of Halifax on a winding back road. The pay off is 5 min proximity to beautiful white sand Crystal Crescent Beach and many hiking trails. George & Julianna were very kind and generous hosts. Lots of privacy. Buy your groceries in Halifax before driving up. Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg are easy return drives and day trips to Halifax broaden a longer stay. I stayed a week with my 11 year old grandson and we were busy everyday. The property sits right on a lovely, calm cove perfect for kayaking and fishing. I would definitely return.
