About the property

Appropriately named, the Joli House is a cheerful quirky cottage on a fabulous white sandy beach. Well used and well loved, a lifetime of happy memories adorns the cottage - family pictures hang on the walls; an assortment of knick-knacks rest on the shelves while well-worn books and games add to the pleasant family atmosphere. It is like walking into "Grandma's House". You can almost smell the cookies baking! Situated on a sheltered cove a stone's throw away from a truly stunning white sandy beach, the Joli House is a delightful fully renovated fisherman's cottage. Designed for summer holiday living, the cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, TV room and a fabulous sunroom with a spectacular view of the beach. Up the winding staircase are three charming bedrooms, furnished with a queen, a double and two twin beds. All wallpapered with a mix of geometric and floral patterns, these rooms are comfortable, bright and inviting. Bed linens and towels are provided. A large deck complete with patio furniture and propane BBQ make for comfortable outdoor living. Surrounded by natural beauty and screened by trees, this cottage is a beautiful oceanfront oasis. Flower boxes overflow with cheerful blooms. If houses could smile, this one would be beaming!

Driving distances are 20 minutes to Liverpool, 30 minutes to Shelburne, 2 hours to the Halifax airport and 1.5 hours to the ferry terminal in Yarmouth.

Joli House has a one week SATURDAY TO SATURDAY rental period during the peak season (July and August) and three night minimum rental period during the shoulder seasons.

Charming cottage on a beautiful and pristine beach

  • 4 of 5

The Joli House is a traditional family cottage located "off the beaten track" on a most beautiful and pristine beach, and is a perfect location for tranquil and relaxing vacation, close to nature. Overall, the house is simple but charming, and is adequately equipped for a comfortable stay. The house has an amazing direct beachfront location and the sea is really just a few short steps from the cottage. Located on a large bay, the water is shallow and calm, and at low tide, the beautiful white sands are extensive and perfect for long walks on the beach. When the sun cooperates, the combination of white sands and blue/green water, give an almost mediterranean feel. In the course of the week we were there (around July 1), we saw only about 4 people on the beach at considerable distance, so it truly felt as if we had the place completely to ourselves. The cottage lies on the access road to Kejimkujik maritime park, which is a must-see, for short hikes with beautiful coastal views. There are limited amenities close by to the cottage, but Liverpool is around 20 minutes away for groceries etc, and Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Shelburne are easy excursions within an hour or so. As a tip, the cottage is on well water, which while safe to drink, does have a somewhat metallic taste/smell, so we preferred to use bottled water for drinking.
