Other Things to Note
I have the condo fo sale. In the event a showing is requested during your stay (and the market is really slow at the moment), i will ask for your permission and a time that works for you. Viewings take 1 hour at most and I always provide 24 hours notice and am happy to drop by with a bottle of wine or $25 or something as thanks for the inconvenience.
Enjoy, relax but no parties please. Smoking outside only.
Golden Rule- leave it like you find it. The cleaning fee is not included. The condo will be very clean upon arrival, it should be ready for next guests upon departure.
Thus far. I've never charged a fee!
Our stay at John's place was perfect : clean, big, spacious, everything you need and perfect location to discover Halifax...walkable distance to downtown. Even though i haven't met John, the communication, check-in/out were efficient, simple and easy. I would go back anytime. Thanks again, John!
We spent 4 nights at John's great flat on Tower Road. Excellent location; close enough to walk to the water front, shops, restaurants, Point Pleasant Park and Dalhousie. John's place has everything you need for a comfy stay in Halifax. John replied promptly to questions I had and allowed me to stay in his place later than 'check out' time so I could go directly from there to the airport which was very much appreciated. A great host and a fun, funky place to stay!
My mom and I really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is clean and comfortable. John was extremely helpful to us; we were having trouble connecting to the internet the first day and he promptly responded to our messages and helped us figure it out. The apartment was within walking distance of all the places we needed to go. Would stay here again!
Great, comfortable place! Very central location. Easy to walk practically anywhere. The apartment is equipped for basic living, cooking, etc. but honestly, given how central it is we spent little time there, mostly out and about sightseeing and enjoying lots of local restaurants. Beds were comfortable and linens provided were clean and comfortable. Parking was easy even with residual snowbanks. Neighborhood and neighbors were quiet. John was very easy to work with and very responsive. Overall a great expereince.
John was an easily accessible host who provided all the information we needed for a very pleasant stay for work at IWK Health Centre.
The apartment itself is wonderful! Very spacious and ideally located for our purposes. It was a very comfortable stay.

About the Host, John
I'm a teacher and a father of an 8 year old girl.
I love anything to do with music, being outdoors, time with friends and family, sports, arts, the ocean and anything to do with nature and fresh air. I play hockey, run, paint badly, play guitar, love to travel and much more. While my life is busy, too busy, I work hard at minimalism in my homes. Everything you'll need but not too much more.
As a host, I offer my place to you for yourself. I meet you upon arrival and fill you in on the place (I have 2 separate places advertised here) and let you be. I'm easy to contact though- quick response with texting, calling or email, in order- if you need something.
I also know NS really well and have tons of ideas for things to do, restos, music venues,etc..
Both places are fully set up for everything you'll need including things like condiments, bedding, towels,wifi, etc..
