About this listing

Delightful, charming retreat at the Beach, this cozy painter's home is the ideal getaway from it all. The waves will lull your sleep in this very comfortable, private setting. Enjoy beach walks, swims, or a quiet night star-gazing on the ocean side's relaxed deck.....or enjoy a peaceful bonfire out back. This slice of paradise on the South Shore of Nova Scotia is for those requiring rest and rejuvenation. Lesss than 1 hr from either the airport or Halifax on The Lighthouse Route's Ten Beaches.

The space

There are two comfy double bedrooms and a snoozing daybed in the little summer room. Hardwood floors, a small diningroom, open concept livingroom and kitchen, all amply equipped. Oodles of fresh bedlinens and towels, the spacious bathroom has full tub/shower, toilet, sink as well as the convenience of a washing machine, clothes dryer.

This was a beautiful cottage with beautiful flowering trees and flowers. The view was spectacular and minutes from the beach. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well appointed with everything we needed. Charmaine was the absolutely very best hostess.

Loved the cottage , felt right at home the minute we arrived . Very nice , picturesque area ... only a few other cottages in the area ( none close by ). Very quite and relaxing , only visitors to our cottage were birds , a couple of raccoon and 2 deer ( we saw munching on the flowers ) pretty cool .

Thanks so much Judy! This 75 year old cottage could use some "newer" antiques I am sure....first mention of that in over ten years renting....see what I can come up with! Sorry about the microwave, as I have issues using them in the house......replaced the one here with a very efficient small convection oven for your use, which was housed in the centre island. Really hoping you enjoyed a nice, relaxing drive back to Ontario. All the very best!

Charmaine's cottage is a delightful place to stay. The location and outlook is superb and the cottage is exquisitely comfortable and welcoming. Charmaine was very easy to communicate with and this was reflected in the eases of arrival and departure. We really appreciated Charmaine's wonderful attention to detail from the goodies left in the fridge for us to use to personal touches in and around the cottage. Thank you CharmIne, we had a wonderful family catch up time in a place full of love and thoughtfulness.

I would give Charmaine a grade of 105% on a scale of 0-100! She was warm, welcoming and flexible. She supplied us with some lovely basic edibles--very unexpected. Her wonderful paintings graced the walls of her comfortable, colorful home. I felt at home immediately. The beach across the street was sandy and the water warm enough for swimming.

This cute, spacious cottage was perfect for our young family of four! Every amenity was included, even toys for the kids. Charmaine made us feel very welcome and we felt right at home.

I am a working artist, who travels widely and I often teach ESL abroad. It is with great pleasure that I have the time to tend my perennial gardens, work in my onsite studio, take long beach walks by my home. I have 3 adorable grandchildren that love visiting with me here on the beach! I love to read, watch great foreign films, and spend as much time as possible with friends both in Canada and abroad. I so enjoy meeting new people via Airbnb and have had amazing travel experiences staying in terrific bookings all over the world!
