The Space

The whole house available in a convenient Halifax location!

This great Urban Cottage has wireless internet, free parking for up to two cars in the summer, washer and dryer and is easily accessible to Downtown Halifax, shopping malls and business centers, major highways, and an easy commute to many tourist attractions such as Peggy's Cove!

Public bus stop minutes away, near walking trails and lakes. House can easily accommodate up to 4 adults, or more if needed.

Kitchen is fully outfitted for meals at home, all you need are the groceries. Meals are not prepared however, coffee juice, cereal provided and you are welcome to use whatever is currently in the kitchen. Appliance include coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, fridge, stove/oven.

I have two rooms with a double bed in each and Towels, shampoo/soap, etc. are available as well!

Guest Access

Guests have access to the entire house, yard, bbq, driveway for two cars, and if required bicycles and other outdoor equipment can be provided. There is a lot of exterior stairs to get up to my house so it is not ideal for those with mobility problems.

Interaction with Guests

My guests can expect to have as much or as little communication with me or my husband Matt as they would like, however I am often not present during check in and check out times due to schedule conflicts. If the guests prefer to have me present I can make that happen sometimes, and I am ALWAYS available by phone, email, or text message and my husband is as well. I aim to provide a pleasant experience for guests, and to allow them their privacy. Aside from checking in once in a while during longer stays, my goal is allow my guests their privacy and to enjoy their stay and I am just a phone call or email away if anything is needed or they have questions!

The Neighborhood

The Armdale area of Halifax is a wonderful spot to be in! We are centrally located within the city of Halifax, making it an easy commute to other areas in and out of the city. In the summer time it is a beautiful walk to Chocolate Lake, and also a quick walk to the Rails to Trails walking and biking path.

Getting Around

Public transit is very accessible at my house, and I provide a bus schedule at the house for guests to refer to. There are two bus stops, one directly across the street and one a short block away. In addition, taxi cabs are always available in the area.

House Rules

No smoking inside please!

This is a Residental area, so please no loud parties!

Nova Scotia is a leader in recycling and waste collection, which means we have strict rules on sorting waste... I have an organics waste bin which I appreciate guests using as well!

The barbeque on the deck is free for you to use, just please make sure that the propane is turned off once you are done cooking!

Thanks :)
