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.

This is a perfect place to stay while visiting Dartmouth. It's very close to all the new downtown dining options and a quick walk to the ferry into Halifax. It's a clean, cozy one room apartment with wifi, a kitchen, laundry, and a clawfoot tub. An absolute gem!

Carl and Jean have a lovely spot in a quiet neighbourhood. Walking along a garden path to the cozy apartment, you could forget you were steps from Downtown Dartmouth. A wonderful place to stay at a great price. Thanks for everything!

Carl and Jean's place is perfect. Quiet...clean...every amenity...updated... extremely helpful hosts. The nicest Airbnb I've stayed at. Blocks from the waterfront but the quiet of a neighborhood. Stay won't regret it.

Carl and Jean's very private space is in a great location! Their home is in a quiet neighbourhood, but it is easy to walk to local shops, restaurants, public transportation and the waterfront. We brought our own food and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare it. We h…
