Geoff was a fantastic, attentive host. The house was absolutely perfect for our needs, picture windows looking out at the bay, deer roaming the property, halfway between Halifax and Chester. It exceeded our expectations and was a perfect spot to unplug.

Nicely laid out home with comfortable living room and areas outside for our group of 6. Beautiful view out the dining/living room. Saw young deer about 15 feet outside the window.

A very comfortable place to enjoy the Nova Scotia scenery. Close enough to Halifax to take advantage of great restaurants and activities.

Geoff is the consummate host! His stories are humorous and entertaining. We were happily pampered with delicious homemade bread and wine, and a beautifully decorated home with enchanting views of the ocean!

The house is lovely with views of the ocean, day and night. We loved the high winds and moonlight on the waves. Very wonderful for us to have the ocean so close. It is also ideal for adventuring in all directions in Nova Scotia. Highly recommend The Tides.
