This was exactly like the pictures! Such an amazing place with an amazing view. You fall asleep to the sound of the waves. She provided some kitchen items that made it easy to cook at home a few Nights. It was really easy to get to places like Peggy's cove and lunenberg from here only about 1 1/2 hours away. We went into Halifax it was super close. We loved watching the sunset from the deck. We will be back Jessica!
Jessica is a wonderful host! Her place is excellently described! You fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and you can wake up and head right to the beach for a morning walk with waves lapping at your feet. We had a great time exploring the beach and surrounding area. It was sad to leave, we will be back!
We had a wonderful stay at Jessica's place. We were 2 adults, 2 kids and a baby, and were very pleased with the house. Everything was sparkling clean when we arrived, and Jessica and Stew were there to greet us, with their dog Maddy, who is super friendly. The location is absolutely wonderful; can't be better. The house itself is well furnished and well decorated; there is a global feeling of calmness and chillness that emanates from the place. If you are thinking about going to Lawrencetown, don't even look at other houses; this one is the best
The hosts: Jessica and Stewart are perfect hosts! They will give you as much privacy as you want but are always available if you need them. They are friendly and will give you good advice on activities and places to go in the area. Jessica responds to her e-mails, calls and text messages quickly so it is easy to organize things with her. They have a dog named Maggy who is friendly and very mellow. We never heard her bark during the week we were there. The apartment: The pictures are accurate. This is a beautifully decorated apartment located steps away from the beach. It is private and comfortable with a fantastic location! Many outdoor activities are possible nearby (beach walk, surfing, kayaking, bicycling, hiking, etc.) and you can spend time in the city of Halifax as it is only 30 min away. You will enjoy a vacation there. We would gladly return. The only down side is the well water which contains iron and leaves rust stain on white clothes if your use it for laundry. However, laundry service for the white is offered by the hosts and there is a drinkable water dispenser in the apartment. This may also be temporary as they plan to update their water purification system.
Perfect location for those who love the beach and like to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. Close proximity to Halifax. Perfect for those looking for a balance of the outdoors and a city visit. The apartment was very nicely decorated but the kitchen lacked some basics but was perfectly fine for preparing basic meals. Note the water from taps is extremely high in iron but we were provided with drinking water. Friendly and accomodating, a great getaway!
