Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Sleeps 8

The Space:

The house was just renovated in June and July 2015, from new curtains, to new fabric on the rooftop patio furniture! From the moment you step foot in the door you're greeted with that "home feeling" that you just can't get in a hotel, or a typical rental. The property has ample space, from the front office so you can squeeze in a little work, to the large eat in kitchen where you can cook while the kids watch TV in the living room. The property also comes with a huge rooftop patio, that doesn't just include a hot tub, but also a rooftop kitchenette! With 3 bedrooms, and a murphy bed on the top floor, you'll never have to have anyone sleeping on a couch! Last but not least, for all those who are into fitness, the home also comes with a gym on the top floor overlooking the patio!

Guest Access:

Guests are able to use the entire space, from the back deck off the kitchen to the office, to the rooftop patio!

Interaction with Guests:

We always offer guests 24/7 access to our direct cellphones, therefore regardless if it's a question about the WiFi, or something as simple as what's a good restaurant in the area, we're happy to help! Every guest is met personally at check in, and given a tour of the property before they receive the keys, we're happy to answer any questions at that time!

The Neighbourhood:

Footsteps from downtown, this property offers everything the heart desires location wise! With the waterfront just down the street, a huge park in the other direction, there's no need for a rental car! Everything is in walking distance or a short $5 cab ride away!

Getting Around:

The property comes with a parking space, that's accessible 24/7 and is off the street! However, being right downtown, you don't need a car! You can literally walk EVERYWHERE. There's also a bus station right around the corner as well for those who want to try metro transit. Halifax has a great taxi system as well, which all the information is available for at the property!

Great accommodation in walking distance of everything

  • 5 of 5

Our dealings with Jacques during booking, arrival details, and during our stay, were excellent. His house was very well maintained, and in an excellent location for walking downtown, or to the Historic Properties on the harbour within 10-20 minutes. The large rooftop terrace & hot tub was a great spot to entertain, as was the large kitchen/dining room/living room. House is ideal for 3 couples using the 2 bedrooms on the first floor (sharing 1 bathroom) and the master bedroom on the 2nd floor (with an ensuite bathroom). The only issue for our group of 7 was the awkwardness for the couple using the murphy bed on the 3rd floor to have to walk past the bed of the 2nd floor master bedroom to get to the bathroom during the night (i.e. the stairs to the 3rd floor are through the master bedroom). All in all though we highly recommend this home for a family or group.

Stay here!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are really looking to treat yourself during your stay in Halifax then this is the place! We were a group of two couples who spent 3 nights there and our only regret is we didn't stay longer. There is so many cozy and comfortable sitting areas throughout the whole house. You'll want to sit and enjoy them all with a nice glass of wine!

I was a bit nervous at first since this was my first foray into rent by owner and wasn't sure what to expect. But all that fear quickly disappeared once we entered the house for the first time. There's no camera trickery here, the place looks as good if not better in person. the location is close enough to everything that you can walk to everything but no so close that it's noisy.

The owner was easy to reach and prompt with responding which is always nice. Overall an amazing experience and one I would recommend to anyone looking to spoil themselves while in Halifax. You won't be disappointed

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and well appointed! Anything you could possibly need for your stay is provided by gracious host, Jacques. Great location with parking for one vehicle. Close to all amenities, walking distance to most. Decks provide sun or shade. Roof top patio so impressive. This couldn't have been more perfect for our Halifax stay and we look forward to revisiting. We are highly recommending to family and friends!
