Incredible character! This studio is in a 1896 Victorian historic house with hardwood floors, 9-foot ceilings and shellacked wooden accents through out the place. It is gorgeous! The studio has its own private bathroom and kitchenette. It is perfectly located, literally on Dalhousie University campus, just a few blocks away from the heart of downtown and the hospitals. There are other 3 independent units in the house. See the detailed description (below) for their AirBnB links.

The space

Live in a historic house from 1896 with original hardwood floors, 9-feet ceilings, antique stained glass windows, and shellacked wooden stairs, doors and accents. A true Victorian atmosphere!

The house has 4 independent units. All units share a common foyer entrance, but each unit has its own bathroom(s) and kitchen. Although none of the units have a living room, there is a shared living area in the foyer area on the second floor. See links below to see each unit:

PARKING: There is ample parking space at the back of the house.

Guest access

There is an iron board and 2 hair dryers at the entrance bench for common use.

Interaction with guests

I (Cinthia) live in the back unit. I don't interact much with the guests, but I am up for a friendly chat if we bump into guests in the parking lot or house entrance.

The basics. Everything was clean but the place is very small. Bed wasn't super comfortable and would suggest bringing extra pillows if you're the type that needs two! But overall would stay there again, beautiful old house and was very clean. There was a book explaining all about the accommodations and Halifax tourism.

A lovely home close to commercial districts and right on the university campus. Getting around was super convenient. The room was clean and well-stocked with the essentials. Check-in and check-out was easy. This place is highly recommended.

Easy check in - walkable to downtown and to campus ! Clean Great that it included parking! Would have been even better if it included washer/dryer / coin laundry! But all in all - great stay! Would recommend

Cinthia gave us all of the information we needed to check in without issue. The location is great and within walking distance of downtown. It was perfect for a quick one night stop over in Halifax.

Great location and a short waking distance to many of Halifax's entertainment, eating and drinking venues. The area is quiet and the home was clean. Very nice old Victorian home and it was awesome to have a place to park my car while I was out and about. Would definitely recommend and will be staying there again in the future.
