About the property

Everything you need for your unique Maritime experience.

Our Oceanfront home 'Bayview' is situated right on the Atlantic Ocean overlooking the beautiful St. Margaret's Bay. Minutes to Peggy's Cove, 35 min to Halifax and 45 minutes to the airport. You will see spectacular sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine or two on the 60ft. wharf or maybe you would prefer a higher elevation on your private deck overlooking the amazing Cove.

Experience our Maritimes. You can take in the Peggy's Cove Boat tours, local art gallery's, restaurants, Paul's Hall for weekend entertainment, hiking trails, take pictures of the colorful lobster boats in our famous Maritime Cove 'Boutilier's Cove'. We personally offer you our kayaks or paddle board, when not in use by other Bayview guests.

The wharf with floating dock is great for swimming, fishing or a bonfire while watching the sunset. Your private deck is a perfect place for meals or just relaxing while watching the wildlife and sunsets.

From Hacketts Cove, it's an easy drive to theaters, recreation facilities, beaches, heritage homes, dining options, local talent and bicycle rentals, etc.

Bayview is made up of three accommodations, each with its own private entrance and deck with shared access to the wharf and floating dock. Kayaks, paddle board and fishing gear in the boathouse are shared by all Bayview guests.

Bill and I live in the lower suite at the west end of house using other two accommodations for short term rentals. Respecting your privacy and enhancing your exceptional maritime experience is our priority. We will be close by to answer your questions or offer you suggestion of local day tours.

Bayview West is Modern and contemporary with open concept, granite counter tops, entertainment room with large flat screen TV, laundry/powder room, master bedroom (temper-pedic) with 5 piece ensuite with heated floor. Living room with propane fireplace. Hardwood floors throughout with ceramic tile in kitchen and baths.

For relaxation and solitude at the end off the day enjoy magnificent sunsets and star filled skies while having a bonfire and snacks on the dock.

This is the ultimate Maritime experience.

Why Sheila and Bill Bean chose Nova Scotia

It's situated on a charming cove with an amazing view of the Bay. Short walk to the licensed restaurant "The Finer Diner" along a charming fishing cove ....it has a very rural maritime feel.

What makes this house unique

The view from most windows, the serenity of the house. October is also a beautiful time of year to visit with the changing colours.

Beautiful home in a perfect location! This home has everything you could need for a great vacation. We enjoyed sightseeing along the coast and visiting the art galleries in the area. So picturesque! Would love to come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you guys! It was nice to meet you. Sorry we couldn't get you out on the boat or spend more time fishing with you off the dock. Would have been fun watching you catch that sculpin. 😊�👍� Thank you for choosing Bayview for your Maritime experience. You were terrific guests and we hope to see you again. Warmest, Sheila and Bill

Highly recommended for so many reasons!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for five nights in early September. The location was beautiful and so convenient to so many areas we wanted to explore. The unit was as shown in pictures, very clean and provided a high level of comfort and relaxation. Bill and Sheila are wonderful hosts and we felt very lucky that they had a free evening during our stay and invited us out on their boat for a tour of the nearby coves. They then built a fire in the pit on the dock and we all enjoyed a glass of wine during sunset.....you just can't get these types of experiences staying at a hotel. We've rented on Homeaway many times and in many locations, and this was one of our best experiences. The owners were there if needed but full privacy otherwise. Several sizes and types of kayaks are available for use depending on your purposes and skill level; we had every intention of making use of them one day but just did not find time for everything. We highly recommend choosing Bayview for your getaway. You won't be disappointed!

Oceanfront paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The care and pride that the owners have in their property and the comfort of their guests is very apparent. Everything that we could have needed was at our finger tips. All of the practical things were covered from kitchen items to being able to use the washer and dryer everything was very quality and comfortable. The BONUS items were - the use of fishing rods (my husband was thrilled, catching Mackeral off the dock) to being able to use the kayaks to paddle to the nearby island on our last morning when the ocean was like glass, and I have to admit having the room to room sound system made it feel really homey. What an amazing, memorable visit - thank you!

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this luxurious and well appointed property with its outstanding views overlooking the bay. The property was very clean and maintained to a very high standard and we were impressed that background music and the large ceiling fan were turned on for our arrival and a bottle of Canadian wine was provided to welcome us. The wonderful sunsets also deserve a mention.

We found the owners Bill & Sheila very helpful & friendly and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

For a day out we would recommend driving the coastal route west to Chester which was a charming town and a very good place to take lunch.

The property is convenient for Peggys Cove , a major tourist attraction, which we visited on a very busy day.

Ocean front home. ..surrounded by summer cottages. Quiet, private living....with scenic rural roads for comfortable walks.

A licensed restaurant with a view of the Cove only a 5 min walk away. Colorful fishing boats on moorings in our small fishing village. Beautiful Sunsets. A place to relax, sit and read in front of the fire or enjoy nature....watch the eagles souring among the seagulls, while the geese and ducks swim with the seals. It's Paradise.
