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!
We stayed in this lovely apartment for two weeks. I was at Kings College - an easy walk from Tower Street. John was very clear in his instructions for finding keys etc so we had no need for him to greet us. We made sure he knew when we arrived. The directions for garbage, recycling parking etc were all laid out. The apartment was clean and ready for us. John did pop around to see us and he was respectful and friendly. I would recommend this apartment without (email hidden)anks, John.
The condo was in a great location and a very nice place. John's instructions were easy to follow and we really enjoyed our stay.
The whole process of booking, communication with John was very good, and we always had quick responses to our querries. The condo is in a very nice area, quiet and close to downtown and all amenities.
I loved that everything was in walking distance. The grocery store and all the tourist attractions. I enjoyed staying downtown and felt very safe in the neighborhood we were at. John's place very clean and cozy and will definitely recommend staying.
Great location, had all the basics that we needed while in Halifax. John (the host) always responded promptly which made among our stay quite simple.
Très bonne place pour habiter pour profiter du centre-ville de Halifax à pied tout en demeurant dans un endroit tranquille. Très appréciable d'avoir accès à une place de stationnement gratuit. Les lits sont très confortables. Je n'ai pas vu John, à aucun moment, mais il répond très rapidement à des messages texte si besoin.
Location was great! Close to downtown attractions. Apartment was functional.

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..
