The model for HomeAway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from this house and were very pleased with our experience. All instructions, including, getting in, rules of the house, appliance usage, listing of local restuarants were very informative, helpful and appreciated. The location and interior furnishings were perfect for our needs. The house was well maintained, clean and up-to-date. We would recommend this house to those wanting to visit Halifax without the hassle of driving (a parking space is provided, if needed). The ferry is close and runs regularly. Perfect location.

Very welcoming and cozy home in an great location for seeing the sites!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the evening and were welcomed with a fresh batch of Home made biscuits and strawberry jam! The home had everything we needed, with easy access via the Harbour ferry to Halifax Harbour. Also easy to access connector routes to other areas of interest.

First class experience at “Diamond by the Sea”

  • 5 of 5

The “Diamond by the Sea” is truly a treasure! We stayed at this beautifully appointed home for 7 nights. We travelled from St. Catharines, Ontario to Halifax (along with my 89 year old Mother) to attend our daughter’s graduation from Dalhousie. Not only did we have her convocation, but we had to pack up her apartment contents as she relocating to Ottawa to start a position with the federal government. To say the least, the week was a hectic one! Coming home to the “Diamond “ every night felt truly like a home away from home. A place to relax and rejuvenate. It was so much more comfortable for everyone - especially for my Mom.

Georgia, and manager Tracy, have created a warm, relaxing and inviting space to welcome their guests. It is wonderfully decorated, extremely clean and the beds are super comfy! The pictures are VERY accurate of this property both inside and out. The kitchen has everything you will need if you decide to eat in. They have thought of everything ! Also, there are some great little eating spots close by and a short hop over the bridge to some fine dining and nightlife in Halifax.

Tracy was fabulous to deal with - truly a delight. We can’t say enough about this property. The attention to detail is clearly evident. We highly recommend it and are already planning another stay at the “Diamond” !

Thank you again for your hospitality Tracy !
