Hey Bob - Check out airbnb.com for some rentals on small homes and condos. They should be able to set you up with something nice. If not, premiersuites.com is also a good site to check out...

Hello You can also check with Kijiji here's the link for Nova Scotia vacation rentals. It is done by area so you will need a map if you are not familiar with the geography.

Just be cautious, especially when it comes to sending payment in advance. Kijiji and craigslist are known for occasional accommodation scams, and with airbnb, although they have safeguards in place for payment issues (you pay them, they pay the accommodation provider, so you have recourse through them if there is a problem), there is no guarantee that the rentals are legal in terms of zoning and local licensing bylaws etc., or that they meet any standards or are insured.

Obviously one should be careful but I did check the listings before posting and alot were reputable businesses with websites, NS tourism accredited.

If one has any concern re any of the listings they can check back here among memebers or check with NS Dept of Tourism to confirm legitimacy before any money exhanges hands.

I wouldn't be deterred by "Jasper Destination Expert."

Good luck from Nova Scotia

Check out Cottagelink.com. We rented a place on the Bay of Fundy through them couple of years ago and were pleased with the results.
