4BR Oceanfront Vacation Rental Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada
- english, french
We are a family that lives in the United States during the winter and travels to Nova Scotia for our summer holiday. We like to go to the beach, swim in our pool, go sailing and spend time in Halifax when we travel to Nova Scotia. We love Nova Scotia and hope to share the beauty of the province with each of you.
Jack purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Jack chose Hubbards
We live in the Boston area and started traveling to Nova Scotia in 1998. Prior to purchasing a home, we traveled to various parts of Nova Scotia for summer holidays. Nova Scotia has many beautiful areas, but when we decided to purchase a home we felt that we wanted to have a home near Halifax and the Lighthouse Route. This portion of Nova Scotia is popular with both Canadian and expatriate owners, due to the proximity to Halifax, easy drive to the airport, beautiful beaches and fantastic scenery. The area reminded us of the New England coastline without the commercialism and crowded roads and beaches. We spent a long time looking for a house to buy near Halifax, and eventually decided to purchase our home. On the day that we visited our house for the first time, the sun was shining brightly on the ocean in front of the house displaying a million beautiful ocean diamonds of light. The privacy of the house (at the end of a private drive) and the stunning view in front of the house were more than enough to make us want to buy the home. From the outside, the shingled house looked like it could easily have been located in Cape Cod or Nantucket, making us feel quite at home. Once inside the cottage, we were struck by the beauty of the ocean views from the living room, the luxury of the remodeled kitchen and the warmth of the home. We knew that this was the house that we wanted to own. We have been traveling to Nova Scotia for our summer vacation every year since 2001. We return to visit our wonderful Nova Scotia friends, spend time on the beach and simply spend time together with our family. The adults never tire of the oceanfront views from the front of the house or relaxing on our 3 oceanfront decks, and the children never seem to get tired of their time in the pool or yard. Our children have now built special memories in Nova Scotia, and so will you and your children if you stay at our home.

Perfect Piece of Property on the South Shore of Nova Scotia
It is hard to imagine a more idyllic vacation spot in Nova Scotia. It was a fantastic visit for our extended family!
Needs to be cleaned and repaired
Many things broken
I am sorry to hear that our guest had any issues at the house. I was not aware of any problems and was not contacted during the guest's stay, so I did not know about their problems. I will contact the guest to address any outstanding issues.
Our entire family of 11 (grandparents to 3 yr old) had the most wonderful week in this oceanfront home. The view was magnificent and we saw Bald Eagles, and Ospreys right out in front of the house.
We didn't need to bring a thing with us. This house has everything you need for a great stay---especially the swimming pool which was thankfully heated. Such a plus as our first couple of days were cloudy and cool--perfect for sight seeing but not beach weather. It was hard to get the kids out of the pool.
Hubbards is a nice little town _ so convenient for sightseeing. We were less than an hour's drive from
Halifax, Peggys Cove, Lunenburg, and Mahone Bay--all a must see !!
Jack, the owner was wonderful to work with. Communication was always fast and helpful.
If we are lucky enough to get back to the Halifax area--we'll
definitely come back to this amazing house.
Hi Nancy - Thank you for your nice comments. We really appreciate all of your feedback during and after your stay. If you are lucky enough to come back to the Halifax area, we would love to host your family again!
What a wonder spot you have! Thank you for sharing it with us. We had such a great vacation and it was so central to where we wanted to go.
Jack was so helpful and great to deal with. Would love to stay again!
Thanks Brianne, we'd love to have you stay again! Thanks for the nice comments, we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay! Regards, Jack
We throughly enjoyed the warmth and calm we experienced just entering the home. Thank you!
The entire process was seamless and Jack was very responsive to all our inquiries. The view of the water is lovely, and once the pool warmed a bit, we were able to enjoy it! I really appreciate the fact that we could get to several small and larger towns within a short drive! I highly recommend that property if you are looking for a wonderfully quiet and peaceful getaway!
Thank you for your kind compliments. I hope that we can host your next visit to Nova Scotia!
Hubbards is a beautiful small seaside village located on St. Margaret's Bay in the center of Nova Scotia's famed Lighthouse Route, about 1/2 hour from Halifax, Nova Scotia. The town has a charming harbor used by small fishing and leisure boats in the summer and is a relaxed, Nova Scotia town. Numerous scenic drives can be taken along the ocean bordering St. Margaret's Bay, including a trip to the famous Peggy's Cove preservation district. Lunenberg, a Unesco world heritage site and frequent port of call for the HMS Bluenose (a Canadian tall ship), is only 45 minutes by car from Hubbards. Other charming seaside villages within a short drive include Chester (home of the Chester sailing race weeks), Mahone Bay (a very well preserved Colonial seaside village) and Halifax itself. Whale watching, fishing, beach combing and other seaside activities define summer along the Lighthouse Route, along with scenic drives and tours to Halifax and the surrounding communities.
