Property description

If a central location is what you are searching for then look no further. Park your car in a private off street spot then walk or bike everywhere. 15 minutes walk takes you downtown, a little further and you will access the waterfront, Historic Properties, universities, hospitals, museums and tourism attractions. Many of the listings for Halifax are actually no where near the city core. From our flat ..walk everywhere

Our apartment is built on the third floor of a 19th century row house at 2433 Agricola Street # 2. Yes there are stairs but it is worth the walk. It is a bright and sunny open concept flat with a corner view of Halifax Harbour.

We started our first vacation rental in 2013 with Heart of Halifax # 1 just around the corner and enjoyed the experience so much that we have decided to open up the the flat above our own home to visitors.

There is one bedroom with an ensuite bathroom opening into an open concept living/dining/kitchen area. There is also access to a nice little deck for afternoon sun. The bedroom is equipped with a brand new king sized bed topped with a high quality foam mattress and deluxe bedding. Off the bedroom is your ensuite bathroom with a tiled shower.

The floors are all hardwood and the kitchen area features a custom built wood dining counter. Kitchen equipment includes a full sized flat top stove and stainless fridge as well as standard small appliances. Your hosts are chefs and so we have equipped the kitchen with top quality pots, dishware and of course sharp kitchen knives!

The living area is well furnished and includes a top quality memory foam convertible sofa bed. Easy chairs, coffee table and a flat screen TV complete the picture.

Car: Not Necessary

Our apartment is located on Agricola Street North End Halifax. The neighbourhood is rapidly becoming the go to restaurant area as well as being a center for arts and music. Right around the corner is the Halifax Common, a lovely park with many recreational activities plus a huge outdoor skating rink. Best of all we are near downtown Halifax, only 15 minutes on foot, with all that has to offer. Hospitals, government offices, universities, museums are all easily accessible without a car. As well, we have quick and easy access to highways making this a great base for day trips around the province.

If you are a foodie, this is the right neighbourhood as several of the best new restaurants in the city are only a block away. Great local produce can be found at the market store across the street with super markets just a bit further.

Halifax has a wealth of museums from the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia to the Natural History Museum, all an easy walk.

Downtown too is easily accessible, with a wonderful, walkable center filled with shopping, cinemas, theater, nightlife etc.
