A teacher and musician, I grew up in Halifax but have lived in many other places, including Germany, China, Mexico and the US.
Urs, Uno and their two lovely children are really and warmly welcoming. The room was quiet, warm, clean and spaceful. Lots of storage units. You'll have your own bathroom and this is quiet well-liked.
Their home is close to everything you need : bus terminal, grocery shops and banks. Thank you again for your kindness !
This was a great spot as advertised. Clean, comfortable, centrally located, and very close to the bus station and ferries.
This place is for those who wish a family atmosphere rather than a private getaway. We had a lovely time there, getting to know the family. The big plus is its proximity to the ferry across the harbour waterfront and downtown, as well as being close to a big bus terminal with reliable cheap fares $2.50 to everywhere.. Good privacy upstairs. Bathroom unusual, sloping ceiling, but it is clean and nice strong hot shower.
Urs and his family are lovely to stay with and very helpful about Halifax and getting around. Their house is quiet with views of the harbour and within 10m mins walk of the ferry so that you could be in downtown Halifax perhaps as quick if not quicker if staying in one of Halifax's suburbs. I also found it easy to get onto the roads from their house when getting out of Halifax/Dartmouth to have a look at the rest of Nova Scotia.
My partner, James, and I were warmly welcomed. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable and the location was perfect for getting to downtown Halifax. Happy strains of family music time greeted us when we came home in the evening: lovely family.
nice room and nice people. everything was as expected. thanks again for the good breakfast
We had a nice stay.. Urs made a lovely breakfast and our kids had fun playing with his kids and their toys. Pleasant and friendly hosts!!
It was nice to stay again with Urs and his family. He was so kind helping us with some mailing problems. The room and bathroom are both tidy and spacious. We had everything we needed. For further information see my comment below.
We really enjoyed our stay at Urs` house. Most important for us was the accessebility by public transport. The airport bus stops a 5 minutes walk away at a bus terminal and even with our huge luggage we had no problems getting to Urs` place. At that bus terminal you find many busses going to different direction and next to it a few super markets. If you want to head to Halifax take the ferry which is only a 15 minutes walk away. Getting along with Urs, his wife and his children is very easy, the room and the bathroom wete tidy and had everything we needed. And we had very delicious pancakes for breakfast!
They accommodated us in our short term stay very well. Conveniently situated a mere 15 minute bike ride to anywhere in Halifax/ down town.
Over all, we were more then satisfied.
Btw anyone staying here should check out the cafe place called Two If By Sea a couple minutes away. Enjoy.
