About this listing
A small room in a great house in an interesting neighbourhood. Shared space with 3 girls, a guy, a dog and a cat! We took some time away from airbnb - but we're back and better than ever! (A new dishwasher goes a long way. You may also have seen references in our reviews to a rock to hold the bedroom door closed. Old houses shift and ill-fitting doors are just one of the quirks! Thankfully, a latch has now been installed so it's all good. )
We are offering a private bedroom in a vibrant shared house in central Halifax. The house has a sunny south facing backyard, large family kitchen, living room and bathroom with a deep claw foot tub. All linens can be provided if you need them. Street parking is available and wireless internet is provided as well.
The house is located in the heart of Halifax, within 15 minutes walking distance of Citadel hill, the Halifax Metro Centre, Neptune theater, Alexander Keith’s brewery and shopping on Spring Garden Road. Walk towards the water and within 5 minutes you can be on the Halifax waterfront, breathing the sea air or visiting one of the many shops or restaurants in the Historic Properties area, including the Hart and Thistle Gastropub or Cow's Ice cream! Fifteen minutes in the other direction will take you to the historic Hydrostone area. If you are up for a 30 minute walk along the waterfront (or 10 minute drive) you will arrive at the Seaport farmer’s market and historic Pier 21.
Your hosts are a young professional couple, our room mate and our two dogs, a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Basset Hound, Hudson and Roy! The pups are Very loveable and won't go in your room unless you invite them in - how could you resist? Together we enjoy cooking using fresh, local ingredients. We are passionate about entertaining in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
If you have any questions or are looking to stay longer than one or two nights please feel free to get in touch with me. Thanks!
Interaction with guests
My husband and I work full time but feel free to interact with us when we are around. If you have any questions, feel free to call/text or leave a question on the island in the kitchen - we'll see that right away!
Other things to note
This is a shared house with 2 univeristy students that may be on a different schedule and my husband and I or you as a guest. They are very quiet and respectful; however, please do not be alarmed if there are people coming and going! Feel free to ask for more detail on this if interested.
Also, there is a large Bernese Mountain Dog and a cat in the house. They are very docile and friendly but not especially cuddly. Sort of a live and let live situation.
