Lovely spacious apartment set-up as a home rather than just a holiday rental (full kitchen and well equipped living spaces, etc.). Convenient location with many helpful dining and attraction suggestions from Tim.
This is a repeat stay; the apartment is great and conveniently located and Tim is a great and very obliging host. We would definitely use it again for visiting grandparents!
Everything worked out incredibly well with this booking. Keys were available for my later arrival and the apartment was exactly as shown. The bed is super comfy and the shower is amazing. One unexpected find was the sweet community of Hydrostone about a 3 minutes walk away - gorgeous french patisserie, incredible olive oil tasting shop, and more. Also, TIm was very kind to let me have a work meeting in the apartment during one of the days of my stay (my colleagues who came over were mighty impressed too). Thank you, Tim!
This was our second stay in Tim and Colleen's beautiful flat. We had a wonderful Christmas week, visiting with our family in Halifax. The flat is lovely and spacious, lovely livingroom and kitchen. There is even a den with a tv, couch and work space. The location is ideal. Close to Hydrostone Market, and about 35 minute walk to downtown Halifax. Highly recommended.
Stellar place! Nice fully stocked kitchen, comfy bed, good location, and lovely shower. Lots of little additions like coffee and cream, a few extra toiletries, music library, list of neighbourhood restaurants and local tourism info. We immediately felt at home. A must stay place in Halifax!
Tim's accommodation was very welcoming and we felt right at home. Leading into our trip we had heard a few comments about the sketchiness of the neighbourhood, however it wasn't at all "sketchy" and it felt very safe. We were three minutes walking distance from the Hydrostone area and a thirty minute walk from downtown. The Hydrostone stretch had boutique shops and delicious restaurants. The North end really is an up and coming area. It was an $8-10 cab ride downtown.
Upon arrival we were welcomed warmly by Tim and Colleen, but the rest of our stay was very private, we hardly heard them downstairs.
They provided us with enough information that you could plan your trip upon arrival with no previous knowledge of the area. They clearly outlined house rules and made themselves available in case we had additional questions.
We loved their kitchen, it had everything imaginable and we enjoyed sitting in the living room listening to their sound system.
If you're a taller couple (or individual), the bed may be a bit short for you (as it was for us), but it was a quiet, comfortable room.
There is a beautiful deck accessible from the den, we didn't use it as it was a bit cool, but in the summer it would be fantastic to sit out on.
The shower was luxurious.
We would highly recommend this listing and would definitely come back.
A very spacious, well equipped apartment close to shops and restaurants. We chose to drive to the Halifax harbourfront which is a couple of kilometres away but there are buses nearby. Tim provided a very easy and flexible check in, check out process. We slept well as there was absolutely no noise at all. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.
Wonderful location in easy walking distance to city highlights. Appreciated host's flexibility when our arrival time was delayed .. And his willingness to pick up coffee for us! Beautiful flat with a nice deck, great kitchen.
Tim and Colleen were absolutely wonderful hosts. They ensured that we, and our guests, were comfortable. The space was absolutely lovely; an absolute oasis.
Very positive experience all around. Apartment was clean and well prepared with towels and sheets, with an added bonus of a 6-pack of beer in the fridge awaiting our arrival. Around the corner from Hydrostone, and the very up-and-coming North End neighbourhood. 25 min walk or $7 cab to downtown South End.
I've know Tim for ages. I honestly can't say for sure how long. We have worked together at two Halifax arts institutions over the years and he has become a dear friend. Now more like family. He has a quick wit, a generous spirit and he's a fantastic cook and gardener.
He has a gorgeous home, and an even more lovely private back yard in north end Halifax. I hope you get a chance to meet him. I'm betting you'll like him as much as I do.
I've known Tim for years, and although I've never stayed at their place (we both live in Halifax...). I know he would be a great host. Definitely consider him if you're looking for a place in beautiful Halifax NS!
