Halifax Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Unique Property, This Is A Historic House With A Brand New Interior.

A completely new renovation makes this centrally located Halifax home an ideal alternative to hotel stay. From granite counters to tiled bath to a spacious deck overlooking a lovely little city garden, everything has been done to make this a perfect pied a terre in the city. There are two bedrooms and a spacious living room with convertible couch giving room for up to seven.

The master bedroom has a queen bed with a brand new memory foam mattress. The second bedroom holds a double with a single bunk over top and the living room has a top quality convertible double. You are in the heart of the city but you’ll be sleeping soundly on this quiet street.

The kitchen has been fully equipped by pro chefs! We know what is needed to make a great meal at home and we supply it all to you starting with a very good sharp knife! Good quality cookware and a complete table setting for eight is backed up with a new flat top stove, blender, toaster, microwave. If we’re missing something let us know and we can provide it. Besides of all this you are in a super eating area. We’ll tell you how to find the hidden culinary gems of this stylish neighborhood from bistro to corner pub and let you know where the best shopping is for that perfect feast of Nova Scotia seafood should you want to cook at home.

Lots of amazing entertainment in Halifax but if you feel like staying in, there is the best video store on the east coast around the corner, a forty inch flat screen on the wall, and an ipod docking sound system. Bring your own movies on a memory stick, cd, tablet or lap top and just plug and play. High speed internet … of course for streaming video, audio and if you must …. Work. Oh yes there is a small workstation too equipped with a computer dedicated to the TV with wireless mouse and keyboard.

Transportation is a snap. You will be located just off one Halifax’s main streets, minutes by car to anywhere in the city and adjacent to several bus routes. It’s an easy shuttle, collective or cab ride from our international airport a half hour away. But let’s talk human powered transport. Here you are within an easy walk from all important destinations in the city center. Around the corner is the hip new Agricola street neighbourhood; across the street is the historic Halifax Commons with parks, fountains, playgrounds and in winter, the Halifax oval, a full sized Olympic skating rink. Ten minutes gets you to the busy Quinpool road shopping area. Fifteen minutes of pleasant walking and you are almost anywhere you need to be from busy Spring Garden Road, to Halifax Metro Center, City Hall and Province House, Citadel Hill and Maritime Museum, Historic Properties and Seaport Farmers Market. All major business destinations, corporate head offices, banks, conference centers and hotels are nearby. It is a short walk to all Halifax hospitals and universities.

Do you like to ride a bike? This is a bike friendly vacation home. As a sideline we have a complete fleet of high quality bikes and are happy to make one available to you on a weekly or daily rental. Or bring you own bike and enjoy pedaling around the city core or out onto the numerous trails that surround the city. We’ll help you with maps and advice on where to go.

If you arrive with your car, there is on street parking available right in front of your door. We are located around the corner from a car share kiosk and car rentals are nearby as required. As another sideline we have a fifteen passenger van and can arrange for group pickups at the airport and tours anywhere in Nova Scotia. Call to find out about custom trips for small groups such as an excursion to Peggy’s Cove and the South Shore, a day of biking by the seaside or a wine tour in the Annapolis Valley.

About Peter Williams

We are Jude and Peter Williams and we welcome you to our lovely Halifax home whether, touring, on business or just visiting. We are both veterans of the restaurant business among many other career pathways. We both have worked for many years in the hospitality industry, Jude as the chef and Peter operating a bicycle touring business has taken him far and wide from Quebec and every back road in Atlantic Canada, to Mexico and Europe. We were looking to spend more time at our home and saw an opportunity to buy this lovely property and make it into a vacation home rental. We live in the up and coming Agricola street area with its lively art life, burgeoning food scene and great neighbourhood feeling. Our home is just around the corner from your apartment on West Street and we would enjoy helping you out with all kinds of recommendations on how to get the most out of your visit to Halifax and Nova Scotia.

Peter Williams purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Peter Williams chose Halifax

This property came to us at a time when we were looking to find another small apartment to go with the two we own in this neighbourhood. We were looking for a fixer upper but 5872 West Street had been completely rebuilt from basement to roof and we just said 'why not?' From there came the idea to try # 1 as a guest rental suite. It is an old building with good bones now restored to its former gracious lines with cedar shingle clad exterior already fading to silvery gray. Right location, right timing, right building, it all came together and we are very excited to be embarking on this project

What makes this apartment unique

Without taking the focus away from the apartment itself the outstanding benefit of this place is its location. But once inside you will have a perfect package to set up housekeeping and have all the comforts of home.

The accommodation had all facilities needed for a very comfortable stay. It was clean and very we'll maintained. Situated in walking distance to all amenities in a quiet area with nice surrounding walks. I would definitely stay here again if I visit Halifax.

Excellent well located apartment

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with this apartment. It is well furnished, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is exceptionally well outfitted. The location is excellent for exploring Halifax by foot or car. The only downside is that there is no off street parking included. We were a little concerned about finding street parking, but had no trouble finding parking in front of the apartment each evening.

Great location, Great Accomodation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this location for a week and it was perfect for our family. The location was great, close enough to shopping, sightseeing and dining, you could walk everywhere. We arrived late on our first night and were greeted with a welcoming note and all the instructions we would need for our stay. The apartment was clean and inviting, even better then the listing photos suggest. The apartment offered us a place to relax and be comfortable after a day of sightseeing or a day at the beach. With two teenage boys being able to stretch out and not being crammed into a hotel room was fantastic. We would recommend this location to anyone and plan on returning. The one downfall is no onsite parking and we had some issues in trying to figure out Halifax parking rules.

An amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the flat was truly great from start to finish - peter and June were so accommodating and helpful, the house was very clean when we arrived and the bikes we rented were there and ready for us to use and they stored my luggage for me on my last day no problem! The location is great with grocery stores, liquor stores and restaurants a short walk away and the neighbours were lovely - we had a BBQ on the patio out back and they came down and said hi before heading out! The beds were so comfortable and the kitchen had everything you would need. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

This is a great apartment. It was exceptionally clean and welcoming. The location couldn't be better. Our only con (though not enough to lower the 5 stars) was the walking noise from the suite above. It sounded like they were in our apartment and in the middle of the night this was a little frustrating. A few times I got up thinking our kids were walking around. However, next time I would bring earplugs and stay again. This really is a great place.
