Owner info

About the owner: This home is owned and managed by John and Jennifer Gillis. We live nearby and take pride in providing local knowledge and necessities to our guests. We have 2 children and 2 dogs and are happy to help with travel arrangements, sight-seeing, and any special needs that you may have.

Why the Owner Chose South End, Halifax, NS, Canada:
location, charm, great yard, spacious, and welcoming. The best spot for anyone visiting on vacation, business, or for events like weddings or sports competitions. You will not find a more central location to enjoy everything Halifax has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In the wintertime we enjoy living across from the skating oval. It's free of charge and skates are provided. In summer, enjoy the green of the Halifax Common and the Citadel across the street and just to the left respectively. We are able to walk everywhere we go and love the close proximity to downtown signts, bars and restaurants, and the beautiful Halifax waterfront.
