Lovely 1 bedroom basement apt. with kitchenette+ private bath. Centrally located 1863 renovated semi-detached Halifax home. Vibrant neighbourhood, walkable to restaurants, downtown, waterfront, universities, + hospitals. Separate entry with keypad access. Queen bed in separate bedroom, queen sofa bed in open main area. Backyard oasis for guest /owner use. Parking on street with Host-provided pass Apr - Dec. Winter car arrangements possible. Owner-occupied upper level of house with 2 cats.

The space
The basement apartment is approximately 800 square feet, has a ceiling height of 8 feet and has heated, polished concrete floors. Several windows keep the space bright and cheerful, and a separate thermostat keeps the place cozy. Enough kitchen appliances, dinnerware, and cookware to allow you to provide meals for yourself if you wish. Side entryway to backyard. A door locks at top of stairs for your privacy.

Guest access
As well as the basement apartment, guests may access the small backyard with a pond and deck chairs, through a side entrance way. This is shared with the owner.

Other things to note
Parking: I have a reusable Visitors' parking pass for guests. There are several reserved permitted parking spaces in front of my house for residents and their guests that also allows parking in the general neighbourhood. Overnight and weekend parking is free. From December to April there is a parking ban when it snows so parking is more challenging. I do not have a separate parking space but there are some available spots in the nearby areas.
Bicycles: I have two serviceable bicycles and two helmets for use. Halifax requires helmets. One bike is a 10 speed with a cross bar, the other a hybrid with no cross bar.

During your stay
I live in the upper part of the house so am available most mornings and evenings. I use three or four afternoons per week for various appointments but am easily reachable by telephone. I'm happy to chat if you want to interact.
