About the property

This beautiful, large four bedroom, two full bathroom home and property bordering Whynaughts beach (sandy beach) on the Atlantic ocean is 30 min from Halifax on Nova Scotia's South shore. It is surrounded by a vibrant community and immersed in local culture. The north border of the property is on "Rum Runners Trail", a scenic 107 km groomed trail (ideal for biking, walking, four wheeling, or snowmobiling) running from Halifax to the town of Lunenburg, the south border is on the ocean. Peggy's Cove, and other scenic drives and sites are located close by giving you an experience of quintessential Nova Scotia life.

The home has four large bedrooms (with generous closet space and drawers) and a very large, fully equipped kitchen as well as a spacious living room with ample lounging areas and beautiful views. It is ideal for either single family or multiple families. A stackable washer and dryer is located in the upstairs bathroom. A large front deck with chairs and tables overlooking the beach is a perfect place to watch your children play if a full day at the beach is not your thing. The front deck is equipped with a cooking grill. A coffee bar complete with an espresso machine is located in the dining room. The morning views from the front two bedrooms are spectacular as you watch the local fishing boats go to work.

The home comes equipped with a portable child's crib, high chair, and jogging stroller if requested. Air conditioning is located in each room (except the children's room due to fire code regulations) as well as the downstairs living space. Internet ready 4K TV, wifi, cable, Netflix, and a landline (local calls only) are provided. The home has great cell phone reception.

A large grocery store and other large town amenities are located 12 minutes away in Upper Tantallon. Smaller stores are located nearby. Additional cottages rented by other owners are located next door if larger groups are wanting to travel.

This is a non-smoking rental. Check in is 3 pm and check out is 10am. However, if no rental is reserved either right before or right after, these times are flexible.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2017

Why The 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. .

This home was perfect for two couples traveling together and the location is great for exploring Halifax and the rest of the South Shore of Nova Scotia. It is well stocked and bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable. Lots of nice outdoor furniture for enjoying the view too! One of the bathrooms is on the main floor while all bedrooms are upstairs but this is a minor inconvenience. I would highly recommend this home.

Great location and beautifully decorated home.

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautifully decorated and well appointed for a large group. The kitchen, bathrooms and of course the bedrooms were all clean, comfortable and fully stocked with everything we needed, including a good supply of beach towels. There is plenty of room for even a large group of people. The location was beautiful! We all thoroughly enjoyed both watching and listening to the waves, and of course, spending lots of time at the beach. It was a great location and allowed us to do all kinds of sightseeing during our stay.I would highly recommend this rental and if my family returns to Nova Scotia in the future, we would definitely rent this house again.

What a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was more than we could have hoped for. The location was perfect. The other beaches in the area were packed, but this one was easy to find a spot. The house had everything we needed, beach towels, games, kitchen supplies, shelves of kids/adults books and it was so close to so many amazing places. Doug and Kelly were very responsive to all questions and it could not have been a better experience. If we get the chance to come back, it will be the first choice for our lodging.

Thanks for everything!
