Our magnificent Beach Haven House is located on a private and peaceful peninsula on Nova Scotias south shore, near the charming village of Beach Meadows, between Liverpool (15 minute drive) and Bridgewater (30 minute drive). It is 1.5 hours southwest of Halifax.
A stay at Beach Haven House is so much more than a vacation, it
affords the opportunity for the experience of a lifetime.
Restoration awaits in the peaceful ambiance of this private 6 acre
ocean side retreat located on a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean.
Absorb the beauty of the sights, sounds and smells of the sea from
our own sand and pebble beach or amble down our down our lane for 2
minutes and arrive at an all but deserted world class white sand
Absolutely amazing 270 degree views of the open ocean, the waves
breaking on the reef, Frying Pan Island and its scenic lighthouse
and the birds, seals and other wildlife that abound can be found
outdoors or in the spacious sun room. Our own saltwater pond provides
a perfect spot for safe adventures for children, such as learning to
kayak. In the executive level 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house the
comfortable furnishings and ocean views and invite relaxation. A
glorious pine cathedral ceiling crowns the open concept living room,
dining room and kitchen.
The upper level of Beach Haven house provides more than 1400 square
feet of first class accommodation for up to 8 persons (2 queens, 2
singles, 1 double). The open concept living room, dinning room and
kitchen has a glorious pine cathedral ceiling, hardwood floors, a
Jotul woodstove/fireplace and wonderful ocean views. The glassed in
sun porch provides panoramic 270 degree views of the open ocean and
the waves from England and France breaking on the reef, as well as
Frying Pan Island and with the scenic Port Medway lighthouse. The sun
porch is also an ideal place to watch the many birds and animals that
frequent the property.
Guests who wish may have double the space, and the views, by adding
on the spacious and bright lower level of Beach Haven. Previously
known as '''Wind Song'and the summer home of a Swiss gentleman for 14
years until we bought it in 2003, Beach Haven has an interesting
'architectural' history. The main level was built as a complete house
(with the three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open concept living room,
dining room and kitchen all with a pine cathedral ceiling). He then
had the whole house raised and put in a complete downstairs, so the
'lower level' is much higher and brighter then a conventional
basement, it is about 2.5 feet below grade. In keeping with the Swiss
style, there is no connecting inside stairway between the main level
and the lower level, one goes in to the lower level directly from the
outside. It is beautifully finished with hardwood floors and pine
walls. One of the main features of interest in the recreation room is
the regulation Brunswick slate pool table. Consisting of a huge
recreation room, large bedroom (twins) and a spacious three piece
bath, this extra space is a perfect add on for large family
gatherings or offers a quiet working space for guests who are taking
a '''working holiday'.
This lower level is available only to families or groups who are
renting the main level (that is we never rent it as a separate unit)
for an extra fee of $600 (high season, shoulder season, $300/per

Owner Supplied Testimonials
We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful week we had at Beach Haven-it was perfect for us. Plenty of space and variety of things to do for all tastes. There is plenty to do for all interests - charming villages to explore, sandy beach, rocky coves, a large attractive house with beautiful water views and plenty of space for everyone to find a quiet corner to read or play games - truly a great spot to relax and recharge. Susan and extended family, Boyds, Maryland
"This is IT! It's fabulous, even before I got to the house I could tell that this is what I would call a get away. And the house itself is beautiful----all the wood! And the views of the sea from all those windows. If I just want to check out from the world this is the place for me. Unfortunately, no photo can begin to capture how amazing this place really is." Dr. P.A.S, Canada.

We had a wonderful time in Nova Scotia. Thank you for providing such a spectacular rental property. Every night we saw the glorious moon and Venus on either side of it. The beach was spectacular. What a beautiful area of the world you have there! Thank you again."
GUEST COMMENT 2010
Just a quick note to thank for providing such wonderful accommodations at Beach Haven. Our stay was perfect and we were fortunate to have beach perfect weather for the entire week give or take a few hours of rain on Wednesday.
Our family was able to explore both beaches and all of the nooks and
crannies in between. For certain no stone was left unturned as the kids
collected shells, rocks and many other beach treasures they came upon.
The house suited us perfectly, provided all of the comforts of home and
enough room for all of us to never feel like we were tripping over one another.
The only draw back was that we didn't want the week to be over!!
