Canada’s Southwest Nova Scotia
encompasses the Fundy Shore & Annapolis Valley, Yarmouth & Acadian Shores and South Shore where vacation home rentals are abundant. These historic lands wind through the Annapolis Valley along the phenomenal Bay of Fundy and the Acadian Shore, passing lush rolling fields and wilderness back country to the picturesque seaport of Yarmouth. Then travel onward to the vast sandy beaches, secluded coves, fishing ports and lighthouses of the South Shore.
There are certain things you expect to find when staying in vacation rental accommodations such as condo rentals, villa rentals, apartment rentals and cottages along Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Of course, you expect to come across some of the dozens of proud lighthouses
standing watch along this rugged coast. You expect quaint small vacation home rental towns, like Lunenburg and Shelburne
, with historic streetscapes so unchanged you feel as though you might just have entered a centuries-wide time warp
You’re not surprised to find a calendar full of cool events like Mahone Bay’s Classic Boat Festival
and the annual autumn Scarecrow Festival
enjoyed by families while staying in vacation rental accommodation. You look forward to an afternoon aboard a locally designed Cape Island boat, spotting whales, seals and porpoises playing in the waves nearby to quaint and cozy apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental lodging. And you eagerly await a tour aboard the beloved schooner Bluenose II
where the only sounds are the creaking masts and the water lapping at the wooden gunnels.
You expect all this in South Shore vacation rentals. What you might not expect is a restaurant like Fleur de Sel
, one of Canada's culinary hot spots, situated just a stone’s throw from apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodation near the Lunenburg wharves where those Cape Island boats are tied up. You might not expect boutique shopping
that offers up red-hot international labels for home décor and accessories or the chic boots from Australia that everyone is wearing. You might not expect to find more art galleries per capita
than most major city centres.
Whether you choose cozy and comfortable condo rentals or apartment rentals or luxurious villa rentals and cottages, you can be sure that vacation rental accommodations in the South Shore will live up to and far beyond your great holiday expectations.
Plan to fall in love with the scenery
and have your breath taken away by sights like thousands of Brant geese lifting off in flight together. Book a tour on foot, by bike or kayak to see it all up close and nearby vacation rental lodging and villas.
Here the surf of the Atlantic crashes over the world's highest tides; rolling hills share historic mysteries and islands' bountiful secrets. Where culture began, folklore flourishes and every season offers a whole new adventure for vacation rentals.
