I like simple things like good food and music.
Peter was a non-intrusive host. In fact, we only met him twice during our 3 night stay - once at check-in and once at check-out. But he was contactable by email and response was quick.
The basement apartment was basic, neat and quaint. We appreciated the pristine white towels with chocs:)
Apartment is not suited for folks with limited mobility. Leave entry light on if expecting to be late coming back.
Peter was a great host. He arranged it all at very short notice and the place was clean, fresh, cosy and welcoming. Organisation was all smooth and easy. He gave us our privacy but was open and generous when we asked for help with things. He was willing to share his interests in the city. Hydrostone is a great area with access to shops and funky cafés and easy bus access to downtown. Would totally recommend this to anyone visiting Halifax and we would stay there again 100%!
Peter was very accommodating and pleasant. The place is in a great location, is very clean and had everything I needed to enjoy a week-end away with friends. The apartment is sweet. It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel room. I would definitely stay again.
The apartment was absolutely perfect for what we needed. Everything we needed was there! It was quiet, clean, comfortable and spacious. Very easy to feel at home. Great location. Peter was extremely welcoming host, great at communicating. I will for sure be recommending it to friends and family and staying there again if I'm back in Halifax. Thanks again!!!!!
Peter has a nice cosy pad. Peter is welcoming and very helpful. His place is also very conveniently located close to public transport (5 minute walk), and it takes just 15-20 minutes to city centre. I recommend Peter's place - both to couples and to families.
The apt is wonderful. Convenient to bus routes. Lots of room to spread out. Lots of privacy. Safe and quiet neighborhood. Peter was very helpful.
Peter who lives upstairs is very welcoming. His apartment is very quiet, clean and only 10 minutes drive from downtown. It was perfect for our needs. Also you should follow his printed guide for good addresses around his place. Thank you again.
The apartment was ideal for our purposes. Friendly owners and very responsive. We will be back when we need accommodation in Halifax.
Peter was an amazing host.
Although we got there way later than our expected arrival, Peter was more than welcoming and got us setup asap
it's an amazing place that's short drive to the downtown core and if you like sunrises, the bridge to cross over to Darthmouth is amazing looking in the morning and super close
Peter was able to leave the door unlock for our realky late arrival. And the place is big and clean. It is a bit far to walk to downtown (3-4km)Ibut easy to get on the bus (bus fare is 2.75 or 10 tickets for 18 can be bought at drug store nearby)
And since our departure flight is at night and peter didnt have any guests so we were able to check out later. Thanks Peter!
There is an airport bus from downtown and only costs 3.25 and if you have transfer you just need to pay extra $1.
Weather was not good when we were there but we were able to play games that peter has in the house and we even cook lobsters for one dinner.
Would recommand Peters place!!
Peter was a great guest. He communicated with me clearly throughout the process and was very punctual. He is very friendly and responsible. I would definitely host him again and would recommend him to others.
Peter was very polite, clean and respectful. I would highly recommend him as a guest. He is welcome back anytime. Thanks, Peter!
Response from Peter:
Thanks Dave. I hope we will be back some day soon.
Peter was a great guest. Always in contact and keep the place amazingly clean. I'd be happy to host him again anytime.
Response from Peter:
Thanks Tricia. I hope we will be back some day soon.
I've known Peter since 1998 while in university. In fact, he has become one of my closest friends since then. Not many people have the luck or privilege to cross paths with people who inspire, motivate and are able to attain or create elegant simplicity from life. The scientist in peter is passionate about the environment and sustainability of life. His lifestyle reflects his passions and beliefs without a doubt. He has taught me how to become free from the stress we create for ourselves and to apply ones ability to live freely outside the confines of our minds. He is calming, wise and inspirational.
When I visit Halifax I always make a point to stay with him and Nicole - whom I am deeply fond of. We can easily spend hours upon hours from an afternoon, well into the night and await for sunrise to arrive the following day while having the most wonderful conversations.
The apartment is extremely cozy and very well kept. My favorite is the Victorian style shower and bathtub. The living room is very quaint, elegant and very relaxing... the bed is to die for! Kitchen has plenty of counter space. Stove and fridge are huge! I loved staying there. Peter is a "legend".. although... I have no idea why he wants me to open a taco wagon??? :)
I used to live in this cosy apartment. It is very quiet and comfortable. The apartment is very spacious and has everything a person needs. The bus stop is literally just around the corner where the bus will take you to the center of downtown in less than 10 minutes. The hosts are very friendly people who will add to the comfort of your stay.
