Incredible character! This 2-bedroom flat 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 flat has two bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom with shower. 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 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, 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.

Lovely quiet street about 20 minutes walk from waterfront. Most facilities we needed were there. We really enjoyed our stay.

The location was great and the check in was very easy which is always appreciated. It's great that there are two bathrooms and the rooms are big. It's located in a beautiful old house so you can hear the other guests but it wasn't a big problem. My concerns were with the cleanliness of the rooms as the linens had hairs on them and there were wasps in the light ceilings so a good clean is necessary. It brought me back to my student life, but still a good place for a short stay.

The apartment was central and accessible to all of downtown by foot. Huge beautiful rooms and comfy beds. Kitchen isn't a full set up (no stove or oven, just a hot plate) but for a short stay it had everything we needed! Would 100% stay at again
