Fox Harb’r in Nova Scotia has entered into a unique partnership with Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina in the British Virgin Islands. During their first three years of ownership, Fox Harb’r residents will be entitled to a complimentary one-week stay in a one bedroom ocean view suite at Scrub Island Resort. In a reciprocal agreement, Scrub Island residents will be entitled to a complimentary one-week stay in a Harb’r Stone Village Town Home at Fox Harb’r Resort. Accommodations at both resorts feature space for entertaining and dining, gourmet kitchens with upgraded appliances, and master suites with luxurious ensuite bathrooms.

“We’re extremely pleased to partner with such an outstanding world class resort,” said Kevin Toth, Fox Harb’r President. “We believe our residents will feel very much at home at Scrub Island, as both properties feature the same level of unparalleled luxury, service and recreational options.”

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail
