About Heather McGrath
Having lived on both Canadian coasts and the Gulf of Mexico, I'm convinced Halifax is one of the best kept secrets in North America. An avid traveler, I've taken notes from around the world to make our apartment warm and inviting. I look forward to making your visit to Halifax an enjoyable one.
Heather McGrath purchased this House in 2018
Why Heather McGrath chose South End
This 1930s beauty has been recently renovated to capture its historic charm with all the benefits of modern conveniences. It's location on the Halifax peninsula is near the centre of the action, but tucked away in a residential area. Grand Victorian homes, some as old as 200 years, surround tree-lined streets. On a warm summer day with the salty ocean breeze tickling your nose, you'll want to live here too!
What makes this House unique
This home was once the location of the French consulate in the 40s and 50s. Rumor has it the 18" concrete walls in the basement were considered ideal in the case of war - standard walls are 8-10" thick! I'm hoping the history of the house will help me master the baking of the perfect pastries.

Wonderful week in Halifax
The apartment is clean, cozy, very-well-equipped, tastefully furnished and decorated, with lots of little extras, like slippers in a basket by the door and essentials for the first breakfast in the fridge. Heather communicated well with us and we felt very welcome in her home. The house is very well located - walking distance to major attractions in Halifax and close to amenities like groceries, cafes and drugstore. I would highly recommend it as a base from which to explore the Halifax region.
Awesome little escape!
Heather has an incredible property in a great location. The space was incredible and I wish I could have stayed longer. Thanks again for a great first Home Away was experience!
Thank you! We’re so glad you enjoyed the space. We hope you’ll be back to visit us again!

Within a short walking distance there are lots of restaurant options, good grocery stores and it is also possible to either walk downtown Halifax (20 minutes) or drive with a car to some great nature hiking sites around Halifax. Heather is a very helpful and nice person. The flat is really highly recommendable and we would definetely book it again!
