Vacation Rentals Canada |The Box House, Nova Scotia, Canada

We love how this private escape embraces architectural sophistication, honest charm, and appreciation for its beautiful natural setting. Placed in dramatic contrast to it’s environment, it makes a thrilling impact.


Located in splendid solitude along the rugged and wild Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia, this architectural gem is set along a secluded peninsula with it’s own private bay, a sandy beach and breathtaking views. Situated down a private road on over five acres, this exclusive oceanfront retreat is a hidden gem that makes a dramatic statement without intruding on the natural beauty of the landscape. Characterized by bold geometric lines, natural materials and punches of color and modern style, both the interiors and exteriors allow for the appreciation of cutting edge design and nature. The lofty interiors are beautifully composed with double height floor to ceiling walls of glass that capture the scenery. With the bright, open plan living and dining areas that overlook the views and a fully equipped kitchen, the house is expansive and ideal for entertaining. With a total of five bedrooms the house sleeps up to ten guests and each is positioned to take in the stunning views. Adjacent to the living areas is the wind protected sun deck with a large heated pool and pool house that’s perfect for summer days and nights. You can stroll out to a second deck that sits above the rocky shore or down to the board walk that leads to the ocean front deck perfect for taking in the view or launching your kayak.

This house is a stunning example of the intersection of pure modernism and wild natural beauty.


Because of the relative isolation, this house is low tech in terms of common wireless entertainment. No internet available but mobile net accessible. Landline telephone and FAX, audio stereo system with CD player, books and maps. Laundry facilities. Sauna and recreational equipment including: two kayaks, bodysuits, life vests, fishing gear.


Although blessed with complete solitude and unspoiled natural beauty, you are within less than an hour from downtown Halifax and the bustling water front. The area of Prospect Bay is located along the Chebucto Peninsula and the Terence Bay wilderness area. Just north of nearby Mahone Bay and the world heritage site of Lunenburg, other famous sites on the island are Cape Breton with the Cabot Trail at the furthest northeastern end of the island, and the National Park Bay of Fundy across the island. Annapolis Valley includes vineyards and historical towns and the vast Kejim-Kuchik National Park is a wild escape for outdoor enthusiasts.
