We are Canadians living in the US and purchased this home as a summer rental and getaway for ourselves. We are frequent travelers who have rented many properties over the years and love this style of travel. We are very familiar with the Halifax area and are happy to answer any questions or make any suggestions that may make your visit better.
Owner purchased this House in 2017
Why Owner chose Queensland
This area has a great significance to us as Atlantic Canadians. We both spent some of our university years here and we hope to retire in the area.
What makes this House unique
We loved the ocean views, the large living room, and the views from the bedroom windows. The ocean waves are heard throughout the house. Mornings here are a freshness that's hard to explain unless you experience it. .

We had seen the photos on Home Away and read the reviews..... but we were so impressed with the property when we arrived. Doug and Kelly certainly thought of everything!!! The decor was gorgeous and the house was very spacious with plenty of room for our ladies weekend getaway. There were nine of us and we all had comfortable seating whether we were Lounging around in the living room(s) or enjoying a meal in the dining room. The house was very well laid out with a well stocked fuctional kitchen. And very comfortable beds!! The owners and the property manager are exceptional and were readily available. The view was breathtaking and the sound of the crashing waves was like a lullaby. We awoke to spectacular sunsets. I can't say enough about this property except that if you are thinking about booking it....think no more...just do it, you will not be disappointed. This property is definitely on the top of our list for a future getaway. Thanks Doug and Kelly for all that you have put into making this property feel like a home away from home, it certainly is beautiful.
Met great friends in area
We were down for thanksgiving and met up with some friends. This place is overlooking the water and we had a great stay. The beds, towels and cottage were top notch. Hoping to return at Christmas time!
We stayed here with our parents for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the home--it was comfy, clean, and relaxing :) The decorations were so nice and there was plenty of room for all of us. There are two full bathrooms and there were only four of us, so it was more than enough space. It would also be a good spot if you have little ones. We are from Texas, so it was also nice to have the AC unit in our room (as well as the master). The beach is right across the road, which is convenient, and the location is a good jumping off point for touring the south coast, going to Peggy's Cove, and/or Halifax. A bonus is that there are a sweet set of swings out back as well. Very nice place! Thanks for the accommodations!
Beautiful Property, Attentive Owners!
My family stayed here while on a brief visit to Halifax. It's a beautiful home with a wonderful view of the ocean. Impeccably decorated with great quality and attention to detail in finishes/textures. The kitchen is fully equipped and accessorized (with the perfect size coffee mugs), and the linens and towels we're great quality. They even left beach towels out! The home is simply perfect. But more than that, we really appreciated the attentiveness of the owners in making sure our stay was comfortable and that we had everything we needed. They even provided great restaurant recommendations. We'll definitely be back!
Awesome! Highly recommend
House is just lovely and very well situated. You can hear the waves crashing on the beach. Clean and comfortable and Doug and Kelly are honest and fair to deal with. I would return for sure.
Idyllic luxurious beach house
Comfortable, clean , modern, tastefully decorated, the list could go on .Our family thoroughly enjoyed their vacation at this beach residence. Charming views & hypnotic sounds from the waves with just the right amount of privacy. Spacious bedrooms & good quality beds ticked all the boxes for us along with the knowledge that all the contents looked brand new rather than overused. The owners were very attentive to our needs & made us feel very welcome during our first visit to Canada . We will definitely rent this property again .

The city of Halifax is 30 minutes away. Vibrant, multicultural, numerous restaurants, gorgeous waterfront, and more bars/pubs per capita than most cities. The summer season is great for city festivals.
