The main supermarket is a 10 minute walk, Fort Needham park and the Halifax explosion memorial bell tower is at the end of the street, 3 coffee shops are within a 3 minute walk, and the Coastal Cafe which is rated "Halifax's best breakfast" is nearby.

Other Things to Note

Coastal Cafe and Mary's Place Cafe are both excellent and are examples of the gems that typically only the locals know about. Fortunate that both are within a short walk!

  • Dale was a superb host! He helped me with my lost luggage (Icelandair lost it!) and gave me very useful info concerning the city. He's located not so far from the center, but getting around by bus in Halifax is much faster than walking. The bus connection to the south is fine (lines 7 and 9). Dale's place is charming. The place is cozy, very clean and beautiful. All and all I enjoyed staying at his place!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Dale's comfortable stylish home, as well as the great conversation on topics of mutual interest. The house is just as pictured in the photos, and has a spacious guest room. Dale also provided additional thoughtful touches to our amenities.

    The home is located in a great area, with several good restaurants and coffee shops just steps away. Downtown Halifax is an mere 8 minute bus ride away, or a pleasant 25 minute walk that we did twice.

    We highly recommend this accommodation for it's overall high quality amenities, location, and of course, Dale is a super host. Thank you Dale!

  • We had a lovely brief stay in Dale's beautiful home. He was a gracious and helpful host. The room was nicely furnished with a very comfortable bed. The location is wonderful: walkable to downtown Halifax yet in an historic well maintained and quiet neighborhood. Very easy to park which is often a concern when you are that close to a city centre. Highly recommend.
