Halifax House Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps four, fully equipped kitchen, linens and towels

This beach house sits atop a cliff next to Lawrencetown Beach, one of the best surfing beaches in Canada. The house is very private set 1 mile back from the main road. The house includes a dog pen for your pet, internet connection, a flat screen TV in the livingroom wood stove fireplace, and panoramic views of the ocean. Only 30 minutes from Halifax where you can enjoy all the attractions of city including tours of the harbour, whale watching and a ride on the Harbour Hopper that takes you around Halifax and then out into the Harbour. Next to the house is the Canada Trail for walking or cycling or cross country skiing. There are several rental places where you can rent surf boards or kayaks or go horseback riding. Beautiful French Acadian villages along the ocean make for great scenic drives. Many artists have walk in studios along the coast and there are many great beaches including Conrad Beach, Martinique Beach and Clam Harbour Beach.

perfect seaside cottage

  • 5 of 5

this cottage is perfect. It is neat and clean, with fantastic views of the ocean from indoors and out. Beth has thought of everything to make the visit relaxing and easy to enjoy your time away. Short drive to beach's and Halifax, as well as other attractions. Every evening was spent on the porch watching the sunset over the water. Will return as soon as possible to see more of Nova Scotia. My friend who went along told me if I come back I have to rent this place because any other place will be a let down. That is how perfect Beth's cottage is.

Peaceful seaside haven

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, stunning views, charming comfortable cosy cottage. Very clean and well maintained, description and photos very accurate. Great customer service, Beth and Chris very friendly and helpful. would highly recommend you visit this little treasure. Was wonderful to watch the sun setting through the picture windows by the log fire.

Close to Halifax, very central to discover all the delights of wonderful Nova Scotia.

Can't wait to go back.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I can't say enough good things about this rental property. It has amazing views, it's close to trails, and it's within easy driving distance to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, and other tourist locations. The cottage is also very clean and tidy and well organized. Beth and Chris have thought of everything. This cottage would be perfect for any time of the year. We will definitely be back!

Quiet, remote and close to beaches and coffee shop

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this lovely cottage. It is quiet, charming and very close to the ocean. You can hear the nearby surf all day. Several major beaches are close by - Lawrencetown and Conrad beach within 5 minutes, Clam Harbour and Martinique beaches within 45 minutes. Visit the Rose and Rooster bakery in Grand Desert.

We have had two great vacations here and plan to keep coming back.

Incredible Cottage for a Week-Long Surfers' Retrea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Beth's place back in October of 2012. It certainly is a charming place, and the ocean views are incredible. The best part about it, though, is its proximity to many world-class surf spots. We would recommend this to anyone, surfer or not, for its view to the ocean and charming layout. Beth and her husband were also incredibly helpful and kind.

Lawrencetown Beach
Car: necessary

Lawrencetown is a beach community with the best surfing in Canada all year round. The village is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Halifax where there are historic attractions, shopping,restaurants and theatre. My home has a panoramic view of the Atlantic ocean and the lights of the Halifax harbour can be seen at night. The house is next to the Canada Trail a marvelous walking and cycling trail that winds around the oceanside. My house has a dog door and dog pen for your pet. The house is set up on a cliff and is very private with the closest neigbours over 1/2 mile away.September is a great month to visit here as the weather is still beautiful and the beaches are deserted.
