Perfect location for a family - especially with teens. Having their own rooms made the stay great!
Fantastic! James was a great host. The location was perfect and decor was oh so much fun!!!
Not As Presented
I was extremely disappointed in this property. I thought it would be a good place as I was traveling with my husband and 84 yr old mother in law. The previous review listed was from a senior so I felt it would be an appropriate place given it was a flat with no stairs and close to the city. They also gave it a 5 star. Which it definitely is not!
As we drove up to the property I started to be concerned. The building did not resemble a Victorian Home, it was old and in need of repair. It resembles more of a row house. The neighbourhood did not appear to be the safest and the parking spot was extremely small.
When we opened the door to the unit we were greeted with a musty smell. The living room to your right was the first room, the furniture appeared old and stained, not at all what is pictured on the site. The bedrooms were small with old furniture. The bedding did not appear to be clean, although the owner stated that the cleaners did wash the bedding at the public laundry mat next door. The rugs in the bedrooms were stained. The kitchen was filthy. The floor was dirty. The sink area had dishes that were sitting to dry on the counter. There was caked on dirt around the sink. The place needed a good scrub. Inside the cupboards there were crumbs and it appeared dirty and disorganized. I would hesitate to use any utensils or plates. The deck was old, you couldn't sit out on it because it was dirty, hadn't been swept or prepared for guests and we were booked for June 22 to the 25th.
The bathroom had a stand alone tub, there was mold on the shower curtain and the bath tub had black marks which could have been dirt or it was just old and stained.
We did not stay. I called the property owner who stated that he was just there and it was cleaned and that the cleaning company reassured him that it was cleaned. He may need a new cleaning company. Regardless, this property is not a 5 Star I would give it a 2 star at best. We were not reimbursed any money for what we felt was a misrepresentation of the property, which is fine. The purpose of this review is to warn others of the reality of this property so you can make a more informed decision.
great place nicely situated and perfect host.
We where 5 seniors and totally enjoyed our stay in this house, listing description was bang on, the location was great, close to every thing, the place was well maintained, very clean, the property owner was very attentive to our needs.
I would have no problems referring friends or relatives to this place, we visited Halifax downtown, and we wanted a good restaurant and the owner was very helpful in suggesting a very good family restaurant by the name of Smyllies, great place good food and pleasant staff,
Location, location, location. James's place was very close to everything we wanted to see and do in Halifax. Also it was close to the things you may need, it is right next door to a laundromat and a very cool little Italian restaurant. A 2 minute drive down the street to a large grocery store with everything. A 10 minute drive to the wharf with all museums and downtown attraction Halifax has to offer. James was easy to contact and replied promptly to any enquiries.
