All the character of a historic home with all the convenience of modern decor. Welcome to a great neighborhood, close to downtown.

The space

The house was built in 1905, and features many historical details from that period, including reclaimed hardwood floors, oversized trim, a pressed glass window, and an exposed brick chimney. It has many updates as well, including a recently remodeled bathroom.

Most of the city west of the property was destroyed during the Halifax Explosion - but this house survived - although some of the windows likely didn't.

It has been lovingly cared for over the years and now is part of a thriving neighborhood - an easy walk to so much the city has to offer.

The shed at the back of the property will be available for guest who wish to lock their bicycles. The garden, deck, and BBQ provide a lovely summertime retreat and a great space to entertain.

Walk to downtown Halifax, universities, and the hospital district! The hip North End with it's trendy shops, restaurants, and craft brewery is an easy walk. A major chain grocery store and a pharmacy are just out of sight at the end of the street. The neighborhood is a collection of Victorian homes with mature trees. All the convenience of the city without the hustle and bustle on this side street.

Major bus route at the corner - very convenient transit service. Cab fare is under $10 to the downtown. There is a bike lane nearby - and the property includes bike storage if you need it.

Guest access

You will have full access to the entire house and back garden. The shed at the back of the property will be available for guests who wish to lock their bicycles.

Interaction with guests

I typically rent my home when I am traveling myself. If I am available I will meet you to show you around and offer suggestions for your stay in Halifax. Once you have settled in I will check in to be sure you don't have any questions or concerns. The rest of your stay will be private.

It's a great place to stay. The house is welcoming, well equipped and comfortable. It is bright and sunny, cozy living-room and good beds for sleeping. Ellen is responsive and easy to work with.

Ellen's Tiffany blue house is a perfect home away from home in Halifax. It is well situated in the central core, close to everything, yet it is located on a quiet tree-lined street. Parking is easy and there are several great restaurants within walking distance. Plus, a 24 hour grocery store very close by. The house is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The garden also offers a serene escape. I hope to be back!

My husband and I, along with our two dogs, just enjoyed a fabulous week staying here. Ellen's house exceeded our expectations. Her house is conveniently located and is in walking distance to many amenities. The house itself is super cute, quiet, clean and comfortable. The bed in the back principle bedroom is so comfy- we have never slept better in our lives! We also enjoyed the fenced in backyard in the mornings and evenings. Even her neighbours are so great! We really felt like we got a taste of what it would be like to live here. I could go on and on about this place. Everything was perfect in every way! Ellen was always prompt in communication and we felt very comfortable staying in her home. We already miss her house, neighbourhood and Halifax as a whole and look forward to returning in the near future. Will definitely stay here again in a heartbeat!

I love to travel, but enjoy it most when I have the chance to 'live like a local'. I really enjoy shopping at a farmer's market, cooking with local produce, and really building memories based on what it might be like if I were to move to the place I'm visiting. I love to downhill ski, bike, swim, hike, and do any activity that keeps me outdoors. I often travel with family, including my twelve year old son.
