   Paradise on Brier Accomodation

About Us

We are your hosts, Marie-Laure and Torre Hansson. We bought this outstanding home in 2012, with a view to moving here permanently for our retirement, which we did on July 2nd of 2015. While we  fell in love with our house, we didn't realize at first the incredible value-added aspect of this amazing community. Brier Island is a place where people are generous and welcoming, a place where people ask "How are you?", and actually want to hear the answer! We live on the second floor; the apartment is on the first floor. We will welcome you and be there to answer your questions.  See you soon!

The original house address was on Second Street. The newly rebuilt house faces the water, and has a brand new address (August 2015): 389 Water Street.


You can reach Brier Island by plane to Halifax, then rent a car or book the shuttle ($75). You can also take the ferry from Saint John (New Brunswick) to Digby, then drive to the island. There is also a brand new ferry, a cruise ship really, from Portland, Maine, to Yarmouth, only a couple of hours drive from Brier Island. The link below will give you more information about this ferry.
