A Lovely Vacation Home for ALL Ages!

This is our first trip to Nova Scotia and we absolutely fell in love with this area. The home is spacious, clean, fully-equipped and tucked away with a beautifully natural setting and a view of the ocean, too. The owner has been so good about communicating with us from the time we first booked our trip, sharing tips of local culture, grocery shoppi... Read More

Tranquil place to watch the sunset

The perfect family vacation spot

This is a very comfortable, clean and well equipped home, it was close to everything we needed and wanted to explore. People were super friendly, the host was very helpful, and the chickens and goat who live next door with a talented potter and gardner were a bonus attraction for our children. We will miss them all and hope to be back soon!

Wonderful house in a secluded and beautiful setting

We had a wonderful time staying at this house in Livingstone Cove. A very nice custom built house with lots of space and a great kitchen. Very close (3 minutes walk) to a nice beach and good opportunities to hike in the surroundings. An added value for our kids were the cute rabbits and hens in the garden. Highly recommended!
