1 review
Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Riverport, Southwest Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia
This four-bedroom home sits on a hill overlooking beautiful Hirtle's beach, Romkey Pond and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a short walk to the beach up the road and through the fields, or an easy drive for those who prefer to not to walk. Described as 'a nature enthusiast's paradise' Hirtle's offers more than three kilometers of white sand and rolling surf set surrounded by drumlin cliffs and breathtaking views. There is also access to two ponds from the beach for warmer water and small children who might prefer not to be in the ocean waves. The path accessing 'cliff walk' at Gaff Point is at the end of the beach and offers fantastic hiking for all ages and abilities. The 'cliff walk' is a great way to spend the day hiking and picnicking and taking in the views and is definitely recommended during your stay.... Read more

We could not have picked a better location to relax and unwind before our hectic lives restart in September. My husband and I flew from Southern California to meet up with my parents (late 60s) and our kids (15 and 18) for a full family vacation. It was hard to find a house that fit all of us, didn't break the bank, was walking distance from the beach, had a full kitchen, and wasn't a resort. This was the only one we found and it was PERFECT!

The views are spectacular: rolling green pastures, evergreens, beach, & miles and miles of the Atlantic. The house is an original seaside cottage, but has been retrofitted with modern touches: bathrooms are brand new, the kitchen is large & fully equipped, and everything is tastefully decorated with traditional furniture. Bedrooms are roomy and cozy. There are lots of areas to lounge inside and out; we spent half of our days reclining on the porch. The house has internet, cable TV, lots of great books, and games/activities...
