About Rachel

Antigonish has been my home and since 1986, and my husbands home all his life. We love Antigonish we lived away and moved back to the area 13 years ago.

We have always wanted a house on the ocean and this opportunity is now upon us, so it is only fair that we share what we have always longed for with guests who will truly appreciate the beauty of this gorgeous location.

Please come and enjoy!

Rachel purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Rachel chose Antigonish

Not many properties can boast that you do actually step off the deck onto the sand.

What makes this apartment unique

Not many properties are walking distance to a seafood restaurant and the opportunity to buy lobster right off the boat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was very clean and centrally located for our travel needs. The beach is great - we loved the walk along the rocks. Rachel, the host, was very helpful with any requests we had. Overall, the place was excellent and would definitely return!!

Our host was most accommodating to help guide us through where we have never ventured before. The people in this community were most friendly. Our home was spotless. We had foxes that would come up and visit, a very beautiful cat named Ms. B, who I could have taken home. I would come back again.

Amazing view, quiet, clean, and comfortable.

We had a wonderful stay at Rachel's property. She and her husband were wonderful. They checked in on us when we arrived and the following morning to ensure we had everything we needed. Their property is in a great location with an amazing view of the beach and water.

The beach is rock and sand, but more sand. Perfect for kids.By comparison, we had been to two other beaches along the coast, both were all rocks making it difficult to enter the water.

There are also large flat rocks you can climb on further down the beach.

We had booked this place on short notice and couldn't have asked for a better place!

Rachel welcomed us with a beautiful home on the beach front. She went out of her way to may our stay wonderful. The location was great for travelling to Cape Breton and PEI. The beach was so soothing, nice to walk on the sand. It was beyond my expectations. I wouldn't think twice about returning to this location. Thanks so much, Laurie.
