About the property

Large Historical-Meets-Modern Home In Central Halifax Sleeps 12- Starts May 1

Starting in May 1, 2015, we have welcomed guests to enjoy our 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom house in the heart of Central Halifax. Our home is seconds from Citadel Hill, and Halifax's Waterfront, and is directly across the street from the Halifax Common and Emera Skating Oval. The house has a large back deck with BBQ, a great place to relax before and after venturing out to enjoy the city and surroundings. The house has three levels. Upstairs features 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The main level is made for entertaining, with an open kitchen and a bright living room. The back sunroom leads to the tranquility of the large deck. Downstairs is made for lounging with a recreation room and bar, to go with another bedroom and a full bathroom. Extra mattresses al;low this house to comfortably sleep 12 people. This house was our family home for 10 years, but it was time to move to a spot with a bit more room for our family!

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.

Large, spacious, perfectly situated close to downtown, Dalhousie University, and local sights

  • 5 of 5

Family gathered in Halifax to celebrate a wedding. This home accommodated our family of 8 plus 2 very comfortably. Four bathrooms meant there was never a line up and a small cozy deck in the back was a great place to relax away from the hustle and bustle. I would highly recommend this vacation rental if you are planning to visit Halifax with family or friends

Perfect for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house for a weekend in Halifax and it was wonderful. 8 adults, three children all fit comfortably and we were able to have Thanksgiving dinner and other events with up to 20 people and it wasn't crowded, plus everyone was able to find street parking. John was great, very responsive and brought us special items on request. I would highly recommend this property.

Excellent Halifax home near the Citadel

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent location, minutes from the Citadel, downtown, gastro-pubs, trendy Agricola street restaurants, Commons park, etc. The home itself is large, clean and charming with many original fixtures, modern appliances, tall ceilings, and four full bathrooms. Our group included two teenagers and their two grandmoms, and we never felt tight for space! Parking for one car is on property.

Beautiful Home in Halifax

The house is in a perfect location - walking distance to everything. The house itself was very clean, enough sheets and bed linens provided. I would highly recommend renting this house and we will definitely be back again. John was very responsive - I can't wait to go back.

Fantastic Option for Halifax Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed home, new renovations of kitchen and bathrooms. Close enough to the Citadel, to hear the noon cannon fire off. (Our son loved that) So close to grocery store and various restaurants. The owners were very quick to respond to our emails. You won't be disappointed!

House in Central Halifax

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in John's house in Halifax. The house itself was great, spacious and scrupulously clean and you couldn't ask for a better location. I absolutely recommend this house for a short or long stay.
