The lower flat was clean and very well equipped with almost everything imaginable ( though a battery operated radio might have been a good addition!). The beds were comfortable. The location was great, being close to lovely beaches and tourist destinations, as well as being an easy drive from Halifax. Everything was great until the arrival of
a hurricane which knocked out power to the region. It left us without water, heat or functioning toilets. Since it was uncertain when power might resume, we left for home the day after the storm, 2 days before we planned. Unfortunately, circumstances meant that we left the flat in a messy condition that normally would have horrified us. Because of this, when Ethel offered us a refund, we agreed to accept only 50% to compensate her for having to clean up after us.
If we have the opportunity, we would return to The Beach
House and we would recommend it to others as a nice place to stay, but perhaps not in hurricane season!
We were looking for something central to some of the spots we wanted to see - Halifax, Lunenburg, Peggy’s Cove, etc. This little spot was perfect for the 4 of us. We didn’t use the “property” much...only to eat a couple of meals and sleep, but it worked great for us. Lots of stuff to use if we wanted (bikes, boogie boards, etc) but we were gone everyday. Ethel was pleasant and friendly - lovely lady! Although we were in the lower flat, we hardly heard her upstairs at all. A great, comfortable spot!
Great place, great host
This place was exactly as describe, and perfectly located for our trip. The place was clean and comfortable. I really appreciated the homey feel. I was able to make meals for the family and even got a couple loads of laundry done. Plenty of windows for a downstairs suite. The beds were comfortable. The host, Ethel was wonderfull. Very prompt on her emails, very helpful once we got there. I would definitely recommend this place.
Wonderful "Little Piece of Heaven"!
Beautiful bright clean! Wonderful host! Beautiful setting! Of the 4 HomeAways we stayed at this was by far the best! Located very close to Peggy's Cove (30 min) . Host has kayaks avaliable for use. Badminton, bikes, with 35 k trail behind the house and so much more. Everything you need while away, she has! So many beaches near by! I can't say enough wonderful things about the host. She is such a happy bubby person and so approachable. The only negative was having to leave. This truly is a little piece of heaven!
Thank you so much for your beautiful comments. It was such a joy to have you & your family stay. Looking forward to seeing you again
And you are so right, the hardest part is when you leave.
Until we meet again,

Bright half basement, great with kids
The half basement apartment had windows all around making it very bright. We didn’t feel in a half basement at all. The kids appreciated the many toys put to their disposal and we appreciated the hosts suggestions for visits and restaurants. There were several beaches nearby.
