About this listing
My cool little house is spacious and cozy. The spare bedroom fits 1 or 2 people nicely. My little dog Twiggy and I invite you in to share our space for your time in town. Centrally located a skip away from historic downtown Halifax.
Room in 1 1/2 storey mid century north end house. On 2 major bus routes, the #7 and the #9. Its a 5 minute cab to downtown and we have parking
Its a small 2 bedroom house with an open concept main floor. You will have access to the kitchen, washer/dryer, wireless internet and tv. You can also enjoy the back yard with patio garden, and bbq.
Your room has a double mattress and box spring that is fully geared with down comforter. There is a closet and some shelving and great desk (used to be a post office sorting table).
You will have to put up with a small dachshund, Twiggy. She is super friendly. If you felt like checking out the neighbourhood you could always take Twig around the block or to the historic "fort needham" dog park.
There is a pharmacy 4 doors up and supermarket about a 15 minute walk away. A short walk away is the unique shopping strip called the "Hydrostone Market". Here you will find some great shops. There are a couple awsome quality local arts and gift shops, a yummy bakery and some delicious restaurants.
I think this gives you a pretty nice idea of the accommodations and the area, but I'd be glad to answer any questions you have.
*I was given feedback from a guest regarding the lighting situation so I feel it only fair to mention... I am not super fond of overhead lighting so many rooms do NOT have overhead, but instead ambient lamps. There IS however overhead lighting in the kitchen, bathroom, the smaller bedroom and all the hallways.
*It is an old house and the stairs from main floor to upstairs are a little bit creaky.
Guests have access to the whole main floor of the house. Kitchen, living room, back deck with bbq. There is parking and 2 major buses pass right by.
