Great location - comfy condo

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely perfect location! Right on the waterfront, close to great restaurants and the boardwalk. The apartment itself is quite comfy -- a large studio type set-up with all the amenities one would need for either a short or longer stay.

The kitchen was well equipped and the bed very comfortable -- both essential!

The host was very responsive and the process for check-in, pretty straightforward.

Will definitely stay there again.

Great apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our week-long stay in the Penthouse Harbourfront Suite couldn't have been better. A small, cozy suite, it had everything we needed. The kitchen had most all the utensils you need for a short stay. The bed was comfortable; the apartment clean. The best feature, though, was the view over the harbourfront. One could sit on the tiny balcony all day and watch the river traffic, if you wanted to. In the summer it can get a bit warm, but there is a floor standing AC unit to keep things cooler. Though we mostly just opened the window and balcony to let the river breeze in.

Instructions for gaining access were pretty clear, and any questions where answered promptly. The only thing I'd point out is that the parking is in the second level down under the building and is a bit tricky to get into. However, once you get the hang of the garage, it is pretty easy to come and go. You are within easy walking distance of all of downtown Halifax so our car mostly stayed in the space. There are a number of very nice coffee shops and restaurants on the boardwalk or around neighboring streets. Many of Halifax's attractions are a 10-20 min walk at most. Would definitely stay here again next time we are in Halifax.

Wonderful!! Can't say enough great things...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here while attending Comedyfest in Halifax.

This apartment is simply fabulous - fresh, clean, attractive, and well equipped with everything we needed to cook for ourselves, which we love to do.

It is perfect for a couple - absolutely perfect.

The view of the harbor is stunning. The local area is colorful and interesting. We were there for 4 nights - any small glitches were dealt with immediately and with efficiency and grace.

The owner, the manager and the building superintendent are all just great.

We have rented vacation lodgings all over the world, and this unit is in our top three!

We would and will return here!!

Ideal locaation, very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Halifax at AJ's place for 4 nights at the end of a hotel stay in New Brunswick. The location could not have been better, the condo was well equipped (better than I had hoped for) and the bed was so comfortable. It was also awesome to have underground parking in this location as the streets are metered. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you, AJ!

Better than a hotel.

  • 5 of 5

I can't stay in hotels without getting a major migraine from all the strong scents, so we decided to try this. The owner made every effort to make sure we had a pleasant and relatively scent-free stay. The condo is clean and carpet free, and the windows open for fresh ocean air. As others have said, the location and view are ideal. Everything you need is here. Free parking included is great because parking at the waterfront is quite expensive. The perfect place to stay for our first trip to Halifax, and no migraine! We would definitely recommend to others.
