There's something so peaceful about being close to the water. It might be the sound of waves lapping against the shore, or maybe it's the sparkling blue vistas.

Either way, these special Airbnbs in Nova Scotia offer the kind of relaxing moments you might be craving right now. Canada's maritime provinces are known for their ocean views, but Nova Scotia, in particular, really delivers on them.

Even with the gorgeous locales and cozy accommodations, many of these are really affordable, so you don't have to go broke just trying to get away for a little while.
