Spacious family friendly townhouse in a lovely natural setting right by the ocean and only 10 minutes to downtown Halifax. Ocean side walking trails. Sweet little playground in a woodsy area beside the ocean. 10 minute walk to Chocolate Lake Park for summer swimming in the lake. This location provides a spacious, quiet and relaxing space in a natural environment with all the convenience of being only a 10 minute drive to downtown Halifax and easy access to highways for your adventures.

The space

Our spacious townhouse is 3 levels of open family friendly space in a quiet and naturally beautiful neighbourhood, and only 10 minutes to downtown Halifax!
It is available for minimum 2 week rentals during the months of late June-early September while we are away for the summer at our family farm. You are welcome to make a request for a shorter period of time and we'll accommodate you if we can.
On the entrance level there is a shady bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed and large windows and glass doors leading out to a private stone and grass patio beneath the upper deck. This level also has a small bathroom with a deep jacuzzi tub and washer/dryer. The second level has the kitchen (well stocked with quality appliances and utensils for those who love to cook), dining room, deck, and living room, as well as a 1/2 bathroom and a view out towards the ocean....a little peep through the trees and it's there(-: The top level has the large master bedroom with a large comfy king sized bed with it's own private full bathroom, and two other smaller bedrooms which share a full hallway (URL HIDDEN) has a double sized comfy bed and the other has a double size futon bed.
The house is decorated in a warm and friendly manner with lovely local works of art and a touch of whimsy(-:

Our group of 6 had a great stay at Minga's lovely townhouse! Very comfortable and well equipped, the highlights were the nice deck with BBQ, great location near the water and in safe neighbourhood which the teens enjoyed exploring on the provided scooters. Minga is an excellent host, fast communication and kindly accommodated our middle of the night arrival. We hope to visit again!

This was our first airbnb experience and we had a great time at the "Spacious townhouse by the ocean". It is a nice townhouse in a great location, everything matches the description. The kitchen is well appointed and a charcoal BBQ is provided on the deck. Minga and Norbert are wonderful hosts, always ready to help and provide local tips and advice. We were invited to “Norbert’s good food” where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market. We were a party of five and the townhouse gave us plenty of space to spread out and relax. We recommend it without hesitation!
