Our stay was perfect, the house was everything we expected and more.
This house is in a very nice location to explore the southern half of Nova Scotia. It is very conveniently located near Lunenburg which has a lot of nice dining choices and at the same time is in a quiet, private location with great views of the water. We were able to explored different parts of the island each day and relax each evening at the home. I highly recommend it.
Perfect views and Great Accomodations
Our family of four, plus my parents had a lovely time at Pat's home. The views of the ocean were spectacular, and the balcony was perfect for sipping coffee each morning and gazing at its beauty. It had all the amenities we needed and was located in close proximity to the Ovens Park, the town of Lunenburg and Hirtles beach. While we were a little disappointed that we could not walk to a beach (There is a charge to enter The Ovens), we found that by not turning on The Ovens road and just going straight for 2 minutes that there was a beautiful sandy beach for walking, swimming and fishing. Thanks Pat - we really had a great time!!
Loved the house, but...
First off I have to say that the house is amazing-- very quirky, very unusual and yet spacious and comfortable. The views of the bay are breathtaking - loved the peace and quiet. However, we did have a few issues. First off, we were surprised by an additional 700 dollar bill from Home Away - for the exchange rate. Had we known the prices were in American $ we'd have thought twice (that wasn't made clear). The internet is another issue-- while there is internet access, it is little better than dial up. The fifth bedroom that was advertised on the site was unavailable. There is a TV, but it's about 30 years old, and it doesn't work. For the price we paid, I expected more in the amenities department (we had to wash our towels repeatedly as there were no extras). Would I stay again? Not at the prices they want, probably not.
We are happy the guests enjoyed the house and liked it's character and views. We love it for those characteristics. We were upgrading the room with a single bed to a double, but found the mattress we purchased did not fit the frame just before these guests arrived. We ordered a replacement, but it didn't arrive in time for their stay. The house has five bedrooms, and additional areas including a separate TV room and sun rooms. They had a party of four so we thought the bed issue would not be a problem. The TV is old, but it works well. However, we discovered when our next guests arrived, the cable had not been turned on for the season. I do not use the TV when I am there. We immediately connected it - and would have done so earlier if we'd been advised. The same is true for the towels. If we'd known they would have liked more, we would have provided them. In the past we left the linen closet accessible, but sadly, many towels went missing. Regarding the Internet, it is not high speed, but I find it much faster than dial up and comfortably use it for my consulting work. We are on a private road in a rural area, and access to the fastest internet is not available to us. We hadn't rented out the house the past two years; prior to that the USD had been indicated with the price. I just checked the Homeaway site and saw that USD was not indicated. I will add it to the house description. Thank you for the feedback.
Perfect place to stay for a vacation whether you want to explore the area or just relax and enjoy the view. The property was clean and well-maintained. All the supplies (linens, toiletries, dishes etc.) were available in abundance. Located close to attractions. We would highly recommend this property.
This home was all one would want in a rental: it was well kept, clean and spacious. We golfed at a nearby course, fished, kayaked and hiked. It is an short drive to Lunenberg with many shops and restaurants. We also made day trips to Halifax and to Chester. Wonderful week!
Beautiful house and great location
We spent a week at the house for a workshop, with several days reserved for a retreat. The house was amazing - easily the most interesting and quirky space we've rented - and was very well maintained and comfortable. We accommodated six adults with no problem and the common area (including kitchen) was perfect for working, for meals, and for socializing. The property was beautiful, too.
It's a short drive into Lunenburg and the Ovens park is about a 10 minute walk from the house.
Thank you very much!!! I really appreciate the time you took to do the review.
All the best,
Les plages de sable blanc, un parc provincial et la randonnée côtière sont très proches. Feltzen South Beach est à cinq minutes en voiture. Le Parc Naturel des Ovens, à distance de marche, offre des formations rocheuses à couper le souffle, des grottes marines naturellement formées (vagues), des randonnées pédestres, un restaurant branché, des spectacles live la plupart des soirs d'été et des excursions en bateau. Le site pittoresque de Lunenburg, classé au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO, à 15 minutes en voiture, dispose d'un parcours de golf, de courts de tennis, de pêche en haute mer, d'excursions d'observation des baleines, d'un musée maritime et de boutiques d'art et d'artisanat. Quatre villes sont dans 1-2 heures: Yarmouth, Halifax, Digby et Truro. La baie de Fundy connue pour ses grandes marées. C'est un endroit formidable pour faire du vélo ou prendre des routes panoramiques et des promenades.
