A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the "Green House" while attending our son's wedding. We hosted the rehearsal party and the house and garden were perfect for entertaining a small group! The location could not have been better as we walked absolutely everywhere. The house was ideal for all eight of us and very comfortable with it's fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms. Parking was a bit tight, but Jennifer and John let us use their driveway and once we parked we did not really need the car to get around town. I would definitely recommend this property as an ideal place to have a great vacation in Halifax.

GREAT LOCATION AND EXCELLENT OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5
This old house is centrally located to everything a family wants to do and see in downtown Halifax. Myself and 5 co workers stayed here for 5 weeks from Feb-March and the owners were extremely accommodating and knowledgeable about the city and the house as well as giving advice on where to stay when we rented a car to go to PEI for the weekend. The house has all amenities you need and is a short walk to all the popular bars and restaurants downtown. Overall, this house is worth it for location alone but also having the owners living next door is a definite plus! Anytime I stay in Halifax I plan to use this place!

GREAT PLACE TO CALL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the 'green house' for one week in August and had a glorious time in Halifax and felt very at home. The house accommodated 8 adults. There was plenty of hot water for showers and we prepared many meals in the well set up kitchen. John and Jennifer were more than accommodating for our group, ensuring that we had everything we needed, even filling the bbq tank before it was empty. They also made great recommendations for pubs and restaurants. The house has a wonderful location in a friendly neighborhood with easy access to the downtown Halifax and the harbor. We also found easy access to amenities such as grocery and liquor store.

PERFECT HOUSE FOR US!

  • 5 of 5
We were visiting Halifax to see our son perform in the Royal Nova Scotia Military Tatoo. This house was perfect for our family. We could walk to the Halifax Metro Center, The Citadel and the Waterfront. It was within walking distance of numerous restaurants.
The property was well maintained and very clean. The photos were accurate. We used the gas grill out back to cook burgers and hot dogs. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes, pots, and pans. The kitchen was a great size to prepare meals.
The owners were very helpful and friendly. They gave great directions to nearby attractions. I would recommend this property to a friend.
We enjoyed the Tatoo, The Citadel, The Froggy Tour (land and sea tour), Mariners whale tour on Brier Island, the nearby animal park, Peggy's cove and shopping on the water front. Great food at Freemans. Bring your walking shoes and enjoy all that Halifax and the surrounding areas have to offer.
The Halifax airport is about 35 minutes from this home.

EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
It was better then advertised!

My wife and I stayed here with some family members for a week and it was a very convenient location. You could easily walk to any location in Halifax from this spot. Parking wasn't an issue there was always a spot open and we had two cars. All the amenities were in good working order and since the owners of the property live next door you never felt like you had to worry about anything.

The rooms are all good sizes and very clean. the kitchen is fully stocked with anything and everything you could possibly need. The backyard is cute, private and peaceful.

I have recommended this property to friends.
