Peter was a great host, very kind and helpful! The place was lovely, accurate to its description. It was very clean and spacious. The location was great, a ten minute drive or 15 minute bus ride into downtown Halifax. Would definitely recommend this place!
Halifax the city itself was really humid, but was okay to stay for one or two nights there. Peter prepared many things for guests which we liked. Parking was free on the street. The house was a little bit hard to find but it's not impossible. Overall it was good
The suite met our needs perfectly. It was clean, private, stocked with all that was necessary to make us feel comfortable, and in a great location. The host made us feel very welcome.
Peter is an excellent host. He is very quick to respond and provided us with everything that we needed. The listing was just as described in a quiet and lovely neighborhood.
Cute little space in an amazing area. Tiny little front door (not great for a 6"1 girl like me or people with back problems) but kind of a novelty too. Took the bus to the harborfront for Buskers Fest both days we were there the bus was very close. Kind of sad we missed the Hydrostone market... we drove by and it was cute.
Everything you could need in the kitchen and shower and a cute piggy jar on the window for if you steal a beer or some juice.
The solar heated water was very cool. More people should be economical like that. Peter left us well enough alone and was always super quick to answer any questions!! Thank you Peter!!
Thank you for the lovely rental. We very much enjoyed our stay. It was the right balance of privacy and amenities for us. And the price was very reasonable. We would definitely rent here again when back in the area.
While the place is great, I believe Peter's hospitality fell short. Will not recommend based on my experience.
By all means, Peter's place was comfortable. The room was clean and tidy. Furthermore, the room was located in a quiet neighborhood.
However, the only disappointment of the place was Peter's hospitality. We checked out early from the place by two days and received only one day's of refund. Furthermore, on the day of checkout, Peter came down in the morning to mention how we were leaving too late for his standard even though we had the place for one additional night.
If it were not for Peter's attitude, this place would have been great. Next time in Halifax, I will look elsewhere for a place to stay.
Well Bowen, I am sorry you feel that way. I did not have to accept your last minute reservation changes and was compromising to your request. Part of that compromise that you offered was that you would check out early in the morning to make the place available. When you still did not check out by noon I simply checked if you changed your mind again. I was friendly and courteous to you and do not know where I fell short on our hospitality. And you knew about the cancelation policy. Anyways...
