About Beach Haven House

Main floor: Click any thumbnail below to view the set as a gallery of larger pictures.

The upper level of Beach Haven house provides more than 1400 square feet of first class accommodation for up to 8 persons (2 queens, 1 single, 1 double pull-out futon couch in the sunroom, and a couch or air mattress). The larger queen bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with shower. The open concept living room, dining room and kitchen have a glorious pine cathedral ceiling, hardwood floors, an electric fireplace and wonderful ocean views.

The glassed-in sun porch provides ever-changing views of the open ocean and the waves from England and France breaking on the reef, as well as Frying Pan Island and the scenic Port Medway lighthouse. The sun porch is also an ideal place to watch the many birds and animals that frequent the property.

The Optional Lower Level

Guests who wish may have double the space by adding on the spacious and bright lower level of Beach Haven.

The lower level is beautifully finished with hardwood floors and pine walls. It consists of a huge recreation room with a regulation Brunswick slate pool table, a large bedroom with two twin beds, and a spacious three piece bath. This extra space is a perfect add-on for large family gatherings. Or it would offer a quiet working space for guests who are taking a ‘working holiday'.

This lower level is available for an extra fee only to families or groups who are renting the main level (that is we never rent it as a separate unit) for an extra fee - see our rates page for pricing details.

Two queen and two single double-high air mattresses are available to accommodate more people on the lower level.

Previously known as ‘Wind Song' and the summer home of a Swiss gentleman for 14 years until we bought it in 2003, Beach Haven has an interesting 'architectural' history. The main level was built as a complete house (with the three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open concept living room, dining room and kitchen all with a pine cathedral ceiling). He then had the whole house raised and put in a complete downstairs, so the 'lower level' is much higher and brighter then a conventional basement. It is only about 2.5 feet below grade.

In keeping with the Swiss style, there is no connecting inside stairway between the main level and the lower level. Instead, one goes into the lower level directly from the outside.

Sunset at Beach HavenAssurance of quality is featured with excellent housekeeping and a fully equipped home away from home: spacious glassed in sun porch, ocean-view deck with outdoor furniture, electric fireplace, kitchen with 6 full-sized appliances (washer, dryer, dishwasher, fridge, stove, microwave), kitchenware, very comfortable beds, excellent linens, satellite TV, wireless internet, DVD player, phone, stereo, quality furnishings, books and games, picnic table, gas BBQ and tools.
