We are located 40 minutes outside of Halifax, NS, on the south shore of NS, next to St. Margaret's Bay with public beaches close by. Peggy's Cove is a 40 min. drive from our home along the coastline.
We appreciate it if you can arrive before dark, so we can help you set up safely.
Please, no running generators after 8pm. And no smoking on our property.
All pets must be kept on a leash and cleaned up after.
Please be respectful. This is a quiet neighbourhood and we expect all guests to help keep it that way.
And most important, please enjoy yourselves while you are visiting our beautiful little seaside village.
We are located on a paved road in a quiet neighbourhood. Our driveway is paved with a level gravelled area, off to the side for a RV or a trailer. Our road is a dead end with a turn around spot at the end, just before the road turns into a private dirt road. Our road is not far from the secondary route, Hwy#3.(Lighthouse Route)
There is a spot in our neighbour's driveway for your tow vehicle. Or in our driveway, if there is room.
We are home most of the time and welcome guests.
Please send us a message to see if we are able to accommodate you!

Wonderful, accomodating folks. Very quiet and peaceful location. Marked on our map as a place to return to.
This was the third time we met Sailon, as we exchanged homes in 2018 and 2019.
They are a lovely couple, and have been incredibly kind, patient and helpful to us as we planned our return trip to NS to pick up our RV, adjusting to our evolving plans and needs as we were travelling during covid.
We had originally planned a quick stop to pick up a box of supplies that they kindly stored for us, but we parked for the night on their suggestion. Though it was 10:00 pm when we arrived, they were patiently waiting on their front patio, with big smiles and a friendly hello!
And what a beautiful location in the St Margaret's Bay area - well worth a visit!
Really enjoyed our stay, and meeting Hosts. They suggested places to visit which were fantastic! Lovely! Thank you so much.
Très bel endroit .Ont pris le temps de nous informer des endroits à voir . Même si on ne parle pas bien anglais , très bon accueil. On à fini par se comprendre .Merci beaucoup.
Two of the most pleasant, patient and generous people you could want to meet. Despite various trials and tribulations - all caused by us - they adapted willingly and cheerfully. A great spot to stop over and a wonderful location to visit. How can you go wrong here!
Unfortunately we did not get to spend a lot of time with our hosts, but we had a lot in common with this lovely couple. They gave us great information of the area and local sights. Highly recommend a stop over here at Sailon.
i can’t say enough about the kindness and generosity of our hosts! From the moment we arrived, they made us feel at home! Location was lovely, we were able to walk to 2 beaches, and it was a beautiful drive to Peggy’s cove, and the next day to Lunenburg. Thank you both for a memorable stay!❤️❤️
We were made to feel so welcome by the kindness of this wonderful couple. They are very knowledgeable about rv and camping and sailing! They had great suggestions on how to maximize our time in NS. Some lovely chats over coffee and wine. Please stop by if you are ever in southern Ontario!
Great nights sleep in this beautiful neighbourhood! The hosts were very helpful and accommodating. They gave us great recommendations for travel plans and some local eats/attractions, which we followed and it worked out great! We just wish we would have shown up a little earlier in the evening to have had more time to chat.
Thanks so much for the stay.
A perfect respite for the night. Woderful hosts full of local knowledge and had a great chat with them. Thanks so much
What a warm reception, and so friendly. Sailon were very nice and helpful to us.
They give us much more then just Boondocking, we are very grateful to them.
We love their stories.

Loved this beautiful and interesting location, which is in an area we would not have otherwise discovered or enjoyed. Sailon represents everything that is best about Boondockers Welcome. We are so happy to have come to know them and grateful that they opened their home to us.
We greatly appreciated our stay. This was our first experience with Boondockers, but certainly not our last one. Thanks a lot to Terry & Cherie who went far beyond what we expected. Hope to see you again:)

I must apologise. When we returned from our trip in June I wrote a reference for this wonderful couple thinking it had posted. I am now aware it didn’t, my bad. We had a great stay at between the beaches. It is indeed near some of the most beautiful beaches. Sailon were very welcoming and we had an interesting talk and enjoyed hearing of their travel experience, learnt a lot.
Thank you again and hope to be back in beautiful NS someday.
Great spot! Welcoming stay and enjoyed conversation ... enjoy when teachers get together :) ! Loved the homemade granola! - recipe? :)
Thank you for taking my Boondock on short notice, truly appreciated! Got a chance to drive the area, look at listings, and go to the beach - crossing my fingers! Did my groceries at Sobeys which was great to be able to stock up on the way to camp (very close), my gas (where you directed me) ... and went to Peggy's. Very good location with tourist destinations, gift shops and amenities! Beautiful Gentle Nova Scotia!
hello from Big Pond thank you for letting us stay at your house and giving all the good travel tips.
We had a great time with Sailon and enjoyed the time with them. My wife and I are endorsing this wunderfull couple and hope to meet them again in the near future.
a big hug from Gabi and Joe
