About John or Jennifer

The Orange House has been our family home for ten years, but it was time to move to something a little larger for our little two girls and two dogs. We have loved living downtown and all there is to do in the area. We have rented our neighboring property The Green House, for 5 years now, and really enjoy welcoming guests to our city and helping ensure they have the best 'local' Halifax experience. John is a local physician who is from Nova Scotia, and Jennifer is an immigrant from the beautiful state of Louisiana.

John or Jennifer purchased this house in 2005

Why John or Jennifer chose Halifax

This property was redone in 2005, and again expertly renovated in late 2012/early 2013, making it an amazing venue for executives or families in the heart of Halifax. The Orange house sleeps 12 people, has 3.5 bathrooms, and all the space you need to feel right at home when away from home. This house is ideal for groups visiting for vacation, events like weddings, or visiting town on business.

What makes this house unique

You will not find a more central location to enjoy all the best things Halifax has to offer, in the comfort of a beautifully maintained home that blends the character of old Halifax with the finest modern amenities.

Idéal pour la famille

  • 3 of 5

La maison est bien située. Le centre ville, le quai, les restaurants et la citadelle sont accessibles à pied. La maison est très confortable et la cuisine est rénovée. J'ai apprécié la grandeur de la chambre principale ainsi que la chambre de bain adjacente. Points négatifs, la poignêe de la porte arriêre est brisée et un des lits du 2e êtage est sous un plafond en pente, ce n'est pas agréable d'y dormir.

Nice mix of modern and rustic

  • 5 of 5

The Orange House in Halifax is a great property. It has a nice mix of rustic and modern feeling to it. The location is fantastic, very close to downtown and easily within walking distance of most places. We had seven people in our group, we had plenty of room. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone with a large group visiting Halifax. Thank you very much John and Jennifer.
