Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10-12

Absolutely spectacular!. THE ONLY indoor saltwater pool-equipped vacation rental in Nova Scotia! The Land Yacht is a massive 5800 sq.' 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home offering 700' of accessible and direct ocean frontage on St. Margaret's Bay. Only a 20 minute drive to Halifax. Abundant social and private spaces make The Land Yacht the ideal choice for family getaways.

Too many features to list, but notable are the wraparound glass solarium, hardwood floors throughout, open great room / dining room with soaring tongue and groove ceilings plus a 2 storey cultured stone fireplace with insert. Not to mention the indoor saltwater pool complete with rope swing! The living area is open to the gourmet kitchen with African granite counters, fabulous eating island with lazy susan, Jenn-Air cooktop, built-in wall ovens and solid maple cabinetry.

The two bedrooms on the main floor both offer ensuites, and enjoy panoramic ocean views. (One is equipped with a king and one with a queen.) A half bath is located on the main floor as well, a full bath is located in the pool room. On the walk out lower lever there are three bedrooms of varying sizes. The first has limited views and is perfect for late sleepers. (King) The second and third feature breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean. One of these bedrooms is set up as a family suite and sleeps four to six. (Two queens plus a kids loft that sleeps two to three ) The other is equipped with two day beds that convert to two kings. These three bedrooms share a huge bathroom.

There is a deep water mooring and abundant sea life to enjoy - osprey, dolphins, sea otters. What more could you ask for?

No pets.

Land Yacht New Year stay

  • 5 of 5

We had really good time at this beautiful mention. Honestly inside the house is amazing, we loved it. Outside is very nice too, it's huge property. Kids and adults we all enjoyed the pool, fireplace in the middle of the leaving room, beautiful sun room for times when you want to be alone, drink coffee or read a book.

Amazing Family Christmas getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this well appointed, spacious and spectacular retreat. Located Oceanside with wall to wall windows, we were able to take in the natural beauty of N.S. while enjoying Christmas traditions with family. It was a special treat to swim in the heated indoor pool while the temperatures outside were below zero. We would highly recommend staying here!

Amazing scenery enjoyed from the comfort of the equally amazing Land Yacht!

  • 5 of 5

our vacation to Nova Scotia was highlighted by our stay at the Land Yacht. The owners, property keeper, and people of Halifax were awesome to deal with. The pool was a big hit with our children. Every morning we would have coffee and watch the sunrise on a beautiful day. The scenery in and around this end of Nova Scotia was breathtaking. I would encourage anybody who wants to have quiet time with their family away from the hustle and bustle of life, to take the time and visit the Land Yacht. Plenty of space, well appointed, and well-maintained . It was fun to see our children exploring and taking in the scenery instead of staring at their phones.

We will be back!

Incredible House and Experience

  • 5 of 5

I just led a retreat for 15 women at the Land Yacht, and the house was amazing. The view was breathtaking -- and the house is designed so that it is visible from almost any room. My ladies enjoyed the indoor pool -- though they had to get used to the cooler-than-expected temperature of the water. That didn't stop them from lots of laughter, fun, and play. The four and a half baths were a great treat -- just wish another was downstairs since there were 11 sleeping downstairs with only one bath. That was a minor inconvenience however. The kitchen is amazing -- stocked with everything that might be needed. Pam, the manager, was incredible in making sure all of our needs were met. Though the house sits down the hill from the road, there is still a sense of privacy. Just can't say how wonderful it was.

Special for a fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

Of course, most spectacular was the view from the glassed-in porch which protected us from the cold and warmed us in the sun. The fireplace burned all day, one day. It was roomy, yet cozy. Everything was as advertised, even better.
