Guest access
The house is yours for the time rented. You will not see me unless requested. You will drive up most likely from Halifax and head toward Melmerby beach in Kingshead. The house is known as Old Tom MacQueen's house. His spirit sometimes shows up. He is curious.

Other things to note
There are windows to watch the storms, look at the water and with the wood burning fireplace it's all too cozy. There is internet and cable and a PS3 player, lots of puzzles and games and a few toys for kids. Movies in binders. Roku is available upstairs. Lots of books ! Flowers for the cutting, snips available. Easels are in shed.

66 years old and my body is falling apart. I am a professional artist and art dealer. I rescue dogs and find them good homes. I currently have 2 un-adoptable senior Chinese Crested hairless dogs. I would live in the house if I could afford it. The rentals are a necessity for me. I do like to make people happy and hope you enjoy my home.

During your stay
I am at your service while you are there. A couple of great restaurants and there is always something going on. I am usually in church, that is the church I bought and live in with my rescue dogs. It makes for a great art studio.
