The space

Located in Halifax on the Dartmouth side of the Harbour. Just 5 minutes from the waterfront and ferry to downtown Halifax, this apartment offers the advantages of an urban location, but with green space that allows for a full appreciation of summer on the East Coast - your own backyard space, grilling on the barbecue, a chance to relax in the sun or shade with your favorite magazine.

The unit is about half of the first-floor of a unique modern home (constructed 2008) in a historic neighborhood of cute 1900-era wooden houses, parks, and tree-lined streets. It is offset 100ft from the main street, and surrounded by well-kept yards and gardens - truly an urban oasis. Our family (Carl, Jean, and Mary Louise live on the second and third floor.

The unit is fully furnished and equipped. It would most comfortably accommodate two guests. Internet, TV, and parking are included. There is also a barbecue and outdoor eating area, and a claw-foot cast iron tub perfect for deep relaxation.

Several great restaurants in the neighborhood include Nectar (excellent cocktail menu), the Wooden Monkey (organic / vegetarian options), and Celtic Corner (sometimes featuring live celtic music). We also recommend the croissants at the award-winning Two If By the Sea Cafe, just a four minute walk from our place.

The main public bus terminal in Dartmouth is just a 10-minute walk across the Dartmouth Commons (park overlooking Halifax Harbor), providing easy access to most destinations in the Halifax metro area for those who prefer to avoid the hassle of driving and parking in an unfamiliar city (given the geography, Halifax's roads are anything but grid-like!). Also a 10 minute walk to the Dartmouth Ferry which frequently crosses the Harbour and docks in the heart of Halifax's downtown.

Carl and Jean's place is a great spot for easy access to Halifax. Located about 7 mins walking from the ferry and within walking distance to Dartmouth town, yet situated well back from a residential road, it really is a little oasis. We didn't get to meet Jean but Carl was very f…

This is a great place to stay. We had everything we needed, all was extremely clean and comfortable. Great to have a washing machine and tumble drier. Wifi worked well too. Only a few minutes into Halifax by car, and the ferry was very close had we wanted to go on foot. Pity the …

We stayed in Carl and Jeans wonderful apartment for a couple of weeks in November and it could not have been better. They were so welcoming and friendly and made us feel at home immediately. The apartment has everything you need for a long stay and it really did feel like a home …

Carl and Jean were lovely hosts. They made sure I had everything I needed and even left an umbrella out for me on a rainy day. The apartment had everything that I needed for my stay and was comfortable and cozy!

Jean answered my messages instantly, and everything was great. I had all that I needed, and slept really well. The bed was fantastic, and the little kitchen worked really well for me. The location offered easy access to Dartmouth, Halifax, the South Shore and points north. If I’m…

What a great space hidden in its private garden away from city noise, but a short stroll to all the amazing revitalized downtown Dartmouth has to offer. Cider and craft beer with appys at Battery Park, then walk to Celtic Corner, or Seventy3. For food and music Like Arnie says "…

I am a family lawyer and longtime Airbnb host. I love gardening, pilates, and treating my many nieces and nephews to a good summer barbecue. I split my time in the summer between Halifax / Dartmouth and our rustic log cabin, located just 30 minutes away on the Eastern Shore.
