Description from manager


Bright and sunny with the warmth of natural wood, this delightful property is everything you would imagine a Nova Scotia beach house to be.

Newly built in 2006, this 2,000 sq ft. architecturally designed house reflects the character and styling of a traditional New England Cape Cod home, while incorporating modern elements like open concept living spaces and floor to ceiling windows. Immediately upon entering, the eye is drawn to the expansive windows, which seem to bring the outdoors into this home. The open concept design includes living room, dining room and a dream kitchen with all new appliances. A utility room, the master bedroom and ensuite 4-piece bathroom make up the rest of the downstairs floor plan. Upstairs are two bedrooms, a second 4-piece bathroom and a sitting room with a view so spectacular that it is impossible to concentrate on anything else!

The beach house is equipped with three bedrooms. All with queen size beds, plenty of closet space and picture perfect views of the beach and ocean beyond. The beach house is equipped with two four-piece bathrooms featuring ocean inspired glass mosaic tiles and ergonomic fixtures. Luxurious towels are provided.

A two-sided wrap-around deck with screened gazebo and a boardwalk that traverses the sand dunes and leads onto the beach have the effect of further extending the living space to the outside. So whether you are dining alfresco on the deck or simply relaxing listening to the waves, it is hard to escape the overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility.

Louis Head Beach is a 3 kilometer (2 miles) white sandy beach with a shallow grade and gently rolling waves. The shallow ocean waters, warmed by the sun, make it an excellent beach for swimming, body surfing, sea kayaking, beachcombing or for simply relaxing!

For theatre , fine dining, museums, shops and other attractions, Shelburne is approximately 35 minutes away; while Lockeport with its beautiful

Crescent Beach is a 15 minutes drive. Halifax is two hours, the UNESCO town of

Lunenburg , Peggy’s Cove and Whale watching in Digby are all pleasant day trips.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I have stayed at this cottage with my family on more than one occasion and I am quite familiar with the property.

Response from the manager Hi, I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Sanderling Beach House. The house is a truly spectacular place. It is a good thing the house is so lovely and the kind of place most people are happy to linger because, you are right, the road in is an adventure in itself! I believe the road is privately owned by all the people who have property on the road (about 10 I think). They need to get together to organize some maintenance for the road. I will pass your comments on to the home owners. Cheers Helen
