If you like having morning coffee overlooking the ocean, this is the place for you! I am renting my spacious one bedroom house from mid-April to mid-July. The house is available furnished only. I would also be willing to rent it out for two weeks for those needing to quarantine, as it has a large yard to walk in. It is located in beautiful West Pennant, Nova Scotia, a half hour drive from Halifax, including Dalhousie, Saint Mary's, and Mount Saint Vincent Universities and the University of King's College. It also makes an excellent writing retreat location, with a desk looking out over the water. The house is one floor, one bedroom, and 900 sq ft/83 sq m and is very spacious. The living/dining room and large bedroom both overlook the water (a small, peaceful cove to the south), along with a large deck. There is ample storage space with two bedroom closets, two other closets, and storage cabinets in the entry room. The kitchen is equipped with ceramic topped electric stove, refrigerator, and microwave. The bathroom has a jetted tub. A modern washer and dryer are conveniently located in the house. The neighbourhood is peaceful and friendly, with access by walking or short drives to several coastal and lakeside trails, Crystal Crescent beach (one of the best in the area), and a large wilderness area. As well, I have a kayak you are free to make use of! The community is very friendly, and several neighbours are also academics, who I would be happy to introduce to the tenant. Halifax is a half hour drive, depending on traffic, and there is parking available for two cars. There is a corner store a 5 minute drive away, and grocery and hardware stores, pharmacies, and restaurants about 20 minutes away. Rent includes all utilities and internet, and recent upgrades include high efficiency Fujitsu heat pumps providing heating and cooling, electric hot water, and improved insulation. Note that some furniture and decorations may be slightly different than depicted.
