About our home

We look forward to hearing from you and we are open to offers to exchange our oceanfront home, located in Nova Scotia, throughout the year! (more pictures to come...)

We recently purchased this oceanfront home located in a friendly beach community within Halifax, Nova Scotia. Open ocean views and calming waves of the Atlantic Ocean at your doorstep. We are centrally located 20 minutes from Downtown Halifax in a seaside community. We are located 25 mins from the airport and 2 mins gets you to the public beach, trails and good surf breaks.

Our home is very bright with approx. 1800 sq.ft of living space with ocean views on all 3 levels. The main floor features a dinning room, mud room, eat-in kitchen, large living Room, a bedroom and a full bathroom. The second level has two bedrooms (the Master Bedroom has a queen bed and has a balcony that overlooks the ocean) 1 full bath with Walk-in shower overlooking the ocean. The walk out basement includes a rec room, and office space.

Our oceanfront lot is 2 acres with a rolling slope to the ocean and a fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs to settle in while you roast your marshmallows! Enjoy your breakfast on the large deck located off the kitchen - features a BBQ and a new wicker patio set.

We live in a vibrant community and we are fortunate to have incredibly friendly and respectful neighbours. We are located steps away from a playground and public surf park and a full-access public beach. We are also located next to many lakes you can swim in during our summer. Nearby, there is also a gorgeous, safe salt marsh trail that you can enjoy by bike or by foot. A gorgeous 7km loops with hills, salt air and beautiful views - a runner's dream!

Nearby, Saturday morning waterfront market, the ferryboat to downtown Halifax and the Alderney Gate Library which overlooks the ocean and the Halifax skyline.

Great quality grocery stores with organic food sections, movie theaters, coffee shops, Maritime Culture are all within a short driving distance.

We are a family of four. Established Business Owner in the action sports & fashion industry and HR Executive. We are the proud parents of two girls aged 8 and 10.

I am originally from Montreal, Quebec and I speak French and English fluently as do our daughters... my husband's French is getting better day by day... :-)

We have concluded 2 home exchanges in the past with great success. We are respectful, well traveled and adventurous and we would treat your home with great care.

We are very flexible when it comes to travel and home exchanges since we are both avid travelers and, we have the ability to adapt our schedule as required.

My husband travels a lot to Vermont and California for work purposes, so exchanges in those two locations would be great. We would love to take the girls to Europe. We love to ski and surf and we are open to non-simultaneous exchanges. Europe, central and South America would also be of great interest. Would love to visit Austin Texas too. We are open, so feel free to contact us with your suggested timeline for an exciting visit to Nova Scotia.
