Our stay was wonderful. The house was charming, clean and well stocked with towels, linens and kitchen utensils. The space was more than adequate for 5 adults. Location was great for exploring the coastal sights on the east side of the province. Would highly recommend this home. Hope to return someday.
One of the best
Have rented many vacation properties and this is a standout. It is exactly as pictured, extremely clean and well appointed, and close to all that Nova Scotia has to offer. Landlord is close by and very accomodating to his guests. Would highly recommend this home!
Fabulous, very clean, friendly owners!
We were very impressed with this house! Everything from its cleanliness and style of decoration to its location and friendly accommodating owners. Excellent value! We would not hesitate to stay here again if we ever find ourselves in Nova Scotia. Thanks again!
We loved the pictures of the house, but the reality was even better - the house is gorgeous! The small touches throughout made it a very welcome 'home' while we were in the Halifax area.
The 10 km or so from Halifax was just far enough away to feel like a country setting, and the area is very pretty. The owner being across the street felt safe but not intrusive, and he was available if we had any issues (which we didn't!). Recommend it highly!
Light-filled, well appointed, spacious, comfortable and in a great location
The location of this house is wonderful, only a few steps from the water on a quiet, pretty street but very close to the city. James, the owner, has done a first class renovation of an older house, including enlarging and putting in a new kitchen, bathrooms and windows. Everything is attractive and highly functional. The house is comfortable--nicely decorated without being cluttered. We would happily return to this house as soon as we get a chance.
Absolutely Great home!
My husband and I together with our 3 kids, spent 12 days in August In James's Home. We came in Halifax for a sailing competition and we were looking for something relatively close to the Yacht Club but also not too far from downtown Halifax. The location is perfect, next to lovely hikes and half an hour away from gorgeous Crystal beach. Downtown Halifax is about 20 minutes away. The house was perfect. Very clean. It has everything you need, sugar, salt, coffee , soap, even two super cute umbrellas, plenty of towels, all sort of Kitchen utensils, a beautiful garden with chairs and table and a great barbecue. We loved it. At night it was very quite and we slept incredibly well. Lovely neighbourhood, next to what it seems to be the best coffee place in Halifax, Pavia coffee. James is very kind and helpful, but also reserved so even though he leaves close to the house it does not interfere with your stay, but he is there to help in case you need anything. I would recommend this place to anyone, Family with children, couples, friends.
