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 at CAD$100. For a larger group of 3-4 guests, an additional bedroom is available at CAD$50.

However, if there are young children and the parents want to have them close the suite has a pull-out couch. In this specific situation, the cost is CAD$100 but you have to contact/make arrangements with the owner.

The suite and the additional bedroom are located upstairs, next to each other. For exact costs, please check the online quote.

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.

Brand new build, super clean and all amenities as promised. Description of space sharing unclear.

  • 4 of 5

Our units were very clean as the house is new, lots of towels and all amenities were as stated in the description. We misunderstood sharing the accommodation with the owners though. The way we interpreted the description was that our accommodation would be more private. It felt more like a hostel (shared entrance, laundry and terrace) and our daughter's room was across the hall which we also misinterpreted. Our daughters (8&10) didn't really know what to make if the "big boy" (George and Julianne's son) who was working at the kitchen table most of the time we were there. This being said we were there very little. We day tripped to Peggy's Point, ate at the Shore Club one night (a must if you love lobster- so charming and delicious!) and of course went to Crystal Cresent Beach for a banner day in the waves! An overall good experience.

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."
