This room is roughly 16' by 12' of space, so it can easily accommodate 2. It includes a queen sized bed, a mini fridge, and a workspace built into the shelving unit.

Its' large bay window faces the quiet but lovely view of Captain Moran's house just to the left. I was told my house and the one across the street were built for his daughters around 1890.

The space

My home is a 3 bedroom character flat on the 2nd floor of a home built in the late 1800's. You can even still see an outlet for gas lighting in my hallway. It is an old home so it will never be perfect, but it really has so much character. With the beautiful wooden mouldings around each door and window, old fashioned door knobs, and nice high ceilings with tall windows that let in a lot of light---it really is an interesting and beautiful place to stay!

Guest access

A mini fridge is provided in the large room, but you are welcome to keep food items in the kitchen as well.

There is a washer and dryer in the unfinished basement down two flights of stairs. The hallway that leads to it is still under renovation, so you would need me to access it for you for your safety and comfort. Don't hesitate to inquire about it, we can come to an arrangement if you need to use the machines. I do not provide Laundry soap or dryer sheets.

I have one parking spot available at the back of my apartment for 5$ per night, 10$ for 2-3 days, 15$ for 4-6 days, 20$ for 7-9days and 25$ for 10-14 days.
I do occasionally rent it out, so to ensure availability try to book it in advance.
(prices and availability recently increased as my neighbour will let me rent out their spot too)

Street parking: signs for the two streets that border my house:
2hr parking 8am-8pm and
No parking on Thursday from 12:05am until 8am (for street cleaning).

So after 8pm and on weekends, as long as you can find an available spot, you will not get a ticket.
Be aware our parking enforcers are private contractors, so are very vigilant.

Interaction with guests

Upon arrival, I, or one of my friends (if I'm unavailable) will walk you through where everything you might need is, including in the surrounding neighbourhood, hand over the keys and answer any further questions you might have.

If self check in is necessary, the code will be provided for the keys that are in a lockbox attached to the front door, just above the door knob.

If I'm not working a show at the Scotiabank Centre or at Neptune Theatre, I'm usually here working on personal projects.

I enjoy conversation and am quite a foodie. I've also lived in Halifax for almost 15 years, so I'm always open to talk about what's good to see and eat in Halifax!

Feel free to relax with me and Cozy! I'm also happy to give you space.

Other things to note

I have a large 90lb fluffy dog that "blows her coat" when the seasons change. I try to keep her well groomed around these times of year. However there is much hair coming off the dog as this time, so beware if you have allergies, or an aversion to seeing a puff of dog hair in a corner that I missed in my daily vaccuming war. The struggle is real.

- My dog is a rescue with serious dog aggression (no issues with people at all). She has been to specialized training, so it is important to her continued training that guests do not attempt to walk her or leave her in the fenced yard unattended.
- Currently the back staircase has no handrail, so guests cannot use that for exit or entrance.
- Guests must notify me if you want use of the washer and dryer, as the staircase to it is under construction
-Refrain from wearing shoes in the house in consideration for my downstairs neighbours and to keep it cleaner

We had a great stay at Georgia's. The location was amazing and the room was quite large. We didn't spend much time at the home but the time we did was comfortable and clean. We also got a great recommendation for a breakfast spot the morning we left that was only a minute away. Definitely recommend.

Georgia's apartment was immaculate and she was helpful in providing tips on what to do and where to go around the apartment. Anything she didn't know of the top of her head was readily available from one of the many guide books and maps she keeps on-hand for the Halifax area. 6/5 stars with an extra for Cozy!

We were only there for an overnight, but the house is nicely set up for guests and hosting. Georgia had thought of all the details. Her pup is nice and the room is comfy.

Georgia is a lovely and thoughtful host. I slept like a baby at her place; the best sleep I had all trip! It's within walking distance of everything: the Commons, the Citadel, the Waterfront, etc. but still nice and quiet. She had great suggestions for dining and I tried them all! Cozy, her dog was a major bonus as she's sweet as pie (but will keep her distance if you want her to).

I'm a friendly and extroverted person (ENFP if you know the myers brigg system) who likes to chat and loves new learning experiences. I am definitely a foodie. I have tried a lot of the restaurants in town and I love to cook. That's my go-to conversation starter. I also have a…
