Property description

Location, location, location!

A comfortable, private and convenient condo for your visit to Halifax.

Be right in the heart of the city, close to everything Halifax has to offer. Park your car in the secure underground garage, and walk to all the amenities Halifax has to offer.

Whether you are visiting for a vacation in the beautiful city of Halifax, for business travel, or for the local hospitals, this is the perfect condominium for your stay!

Located in historic downtown Halifax, this modern condo is close to shops, restaurants, the Halifax business center, and our world famous boardwalk and waterfront. It is also a short walk to both Dalhousie and St. Mary's Universities, as well as the IWK and VG Hospitals.
A 2-minute walk to the Westin Hotel, the brand new Seaport Farmers' Market, Pier 21, two grocery stores and pharmacies, this condo is sure to meet all your needs!

Our ground-floor condominium is a comfortable and tastefully furnished 2-bedroom unit with over 1000 square feet of living space in a safe, secure building. The condo is certainly not a hotel and we hope it feels more like a home to our guests.

Each very large bedroom suite has a pillow-top queen sized bed, linens, and ample closet and dresser space to spread out and really make yourself at home. We also have two pack-and-play baby pens for those visitors who are traveling with young children that are kept in the unit.

The spacious living room has a big comfortable sectional couch and arm chair, a 40' LCD TV, as well as premium digital cable with full HDTV service and unlimited wireless connection.

Should you find yourself wanting to eat in or entertain, our condo has a full sized dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, coffeemaker, kettle, utensils and all the basics you will desire when you arrive (salt, pepper, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc.) On those hot summer days, enjoy the gas BBQ on the private outside patio that quietly faces the back of the building.

For those who wish to stay connected, there is complimentary wireless high speed internet access for all your computers and devices. The condo is also equipped with a cordless phone that can be used for calling locally, free of charge.

For your added convenience, the building also has a bright, clean and secure underground parking and a live-in building superintendent.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Kurtis and Tiffany are avid travelers and use beautiful Eastern Canada as their base. Kurtis, an Elementary School Principal and Tiffany, a Grade 5 teacher at an International School in HCMC, Vietnam. Together they enjoy getting outside, conversing with good friends and marveling in excellent food and wine around the world. They also have a listing on homeexchange.com for their serviced apartment that looks over the Saigon River in HCMC, Vietnam; available during the summer months if this interests you.

Why the Owner Chose Halifax:
Tiffany originally grew up in Ontario and at the age of 7 her parents decided to move the family to Halifax for a 'lifestyle change' and have never looked back. We live abroad but return to Halifax a few times a year to visit friends and family (and the ocean!) We love this condo because it is quiet but right downtown! Downtown Halifax gives you the conveniences of a large metropolitan city, with the warmth and charm of the Canadian Maritimes. You will never meet more hospitable, down-to-earth people than Nova Scotians and we are confident that they will convey how truly proud they are of where they come from. Enjoy your stay in Halifax and all the unique sights that this beautiful and historic city has to offer!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo is right in the heart of the city. There are a lot of rentals around Halifax, but very few directly downtown, nor are many clean, cut condos. Our unit is on the ground floor of the condo so accessible for everyone. You are walking distance to just about everything; shopping, restaurants, bars, our famous boardwalk and all the tourist attractions (the Halifax citadel, Pier 21, the Maritime Museum, Nova Scotia crystal, the Public Gardens, Alexander Keith's Nova Scotia Brewery, Spring Garden Road, the halifax explosion graveyard, the Halifax Metro Centre, Casino Nova Scotia as well as countless yearly festivals and events and more!). It is also handy to hospitals and both Dalhousie and St. Mary's Universities. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us directly by email and we would be happy to help!
