Guest Testimonials

Awesome!
My partner and I and some friends stayed at Red Head Retreat for a week in July 2016 and we fell in love with this place the moment we walked in the door. It is exactly as you see it in the pictures. The views are spectacular and the beaches nearby are incredible. Peaceful, secluded, quiet and surrounded by nature! We will definitely be booking again!

Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful property with us. It was peaceful and relaxing, changing and comfortable. We couldn't have asked for anything more. It exceeded our expectations. It was a holiday that we will never forget. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  Bright View Cottage is a great scenic spot for a relaxing family weekend away. Pictures do not do this location justice!

I have to say that the pictures of the house on the website did not tell the full story. My angel and I were here for a private weekend and simply said, the beach house was spectacular! It completely blew away our expectations! The weather was spotty, but sunny when we needed it to be. And, along with romantic walks on the beach searching for shells, we had plenty of places to drive and explore. We've traveled the world over and truely, this has been one of the most wonderful places to stay. We'll be back for sure.

Description

Stay by the sea and experience the unique charms of this Nova Scotia vacation rental. Warm and inviting, this delightful holiday home sits in a large garden high on an ocean bluff and enjoys a spectacular panoramic view of the Atlantic.

Red Head Retreat is a renovated century home with a central staircase that divides the open plan living room, dining room and kitchen. The house has been beautifully restored with honey-coloured hardwood floors; wood trim and neutral paint colours. There is nothing to distract you from that marvelous view!

Simply furnished and decorated, this house has everything you need in a vacation rental. The kitchen is fully equipped with an under counter fridge, gas stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and kettle. The house is fully wired for internet. There is a flat screen TV in the upstairs TV room. Board games and cards are available for family time around the dining room table.

With accommodation for four, upstairs there are 3 bedrooms all with ocean views. The master bedroom has a king size bed while the two other bedrooms have one twin bed each. There is a 4 piece bathroom and a stacking washer and dryer on the ground floor.

A large deck runs along the back of the vacation rental and from there you can enjoy a fabulous unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean. It is the perfect spot to while away an afternoon watching birds flying overhead and boats passing by. It's hard not to relax in the company of such delightful natural scenery: blue skies, shimmering sea and fresh ocean breezes.

Set back about 100 meters from the shore line, the garden is safe for little ones and pets to play. The lawn ends at a 20 foot high bluff that is too steep to scramble down. But it is easy to get to the rocky beach by following the garden as it naturally slopes down to the shore line. Once on the shore it is possible to walk in either direction.

So pack your bags and head over to Red Head Retreat for a restful respite from daily living!
