A Slow Start but a Great Stay
Overall, this was a great place to stay. I contacted Gillian, the property manager, twice before we arrived, and both times she answered promptly.
The place worked well for our five day stay. There were three bedrooms (four of us) and 1 1/2 bathrooms. Beds were comfortable, shower was fine. The kitchen was roomy and convenient. The living area was comfortable, but could use another chair. We had to use one of the kitchen stools for additional seating. The washer/dryer was handy.
It's conveniently close to town, at least from our perspective. We're all fans of walking, so the distance to downtown Halifax and even further was very doable. Access to the unit is up a few stairs to a porch, then up a flight of stairs. That was a little tough on my hips, but not a deal-breaker.
The only issue we had was on arrival. The place had not been cleaned. There were dirty sheets on all the beds, some laundry in the washer, and trash overflowing in the can. I immediately called Gillian and left a message; after no answer within 10 minutes, I texted her. She responded immediately, very apologetic, and took care of the problem. We found a place to eat while the place was cleaned. On returning, things were better, but I have to admit, not quite what I expected. There were 2 dirty glasses in the dishwasher, and a few hairs on the bathroom floor. The next day, I had to look under the couch for some dropped dice, and was disappointed in the amount of dust under there. It obviously hadn't been really vacuumed in quite a long time.
Also, one day 2 men showed up at the door, saying they were there to inspect for a future A/C installation. We let them in, they were quick and polite. But we were not warned about that ahead of time and it seemed a little suspicious. I texted Gillian to ask about it; she was unaware of it. She did text me later in the day and said they were legitimate. It just felt a little odd.
Overall, it was a good experience and I'd use it again. The issues were all addressed, and we had a wonderful time in Halifax :)
Thanks for your feedback! So glad that you enjoyed your visit to Halifax. We have reviewed the schedule with cleaning staff so that we do not encounter this issue in the future. Happy to have you stay with us again anytime.
Nice place, well located
The apartment is a good size and very nice inside. The location is excellent and easy walking distance from the centre of Halifax, also handy for shops and restaurants (Eliot & vine in the next street is excellent.) The keypad system works really well and the wifi is good.
Nowhere is perfect and one annoyance is the parking, no private space and with it being limited by time in the street we had to go and find somewhere we could park relatively nearby, some guidance would be helpful for this. The kitchen is well laid out and cutlery etc are good, although there is an oven there are no dishes or trays to use in it so it made cooking anything meaningful difficult.
The apartment appeared clean generally, although there were dirty towels hanging on doors which we had to wash and toiletries from a previous user in the shower.
The owner was quick to respond to queries, although I wouldn't say going out of their way to be helpful, so just fine really, they did what they needed to do.
All in all, there was nothing too bad and the location is very good so I would probably stay again if I was in Halifax.
Thanks for your feedback! We have added some detailed information to the binder about best places to park in the area. We also passed along your comments about towels to our cleaners. to make sure they double check the backs of doors. We hope you will come back for a visit again soon!
Great place. Nice to have a "home" to relax in.
Clean. Cozy. Close to all you want to do in Halifax. Will stay here again should we have opportunity to do so.
So glad you enjoyed your stay -- come back and see us again anytime!
Great location, great place to stay!
We enjoyed our 3 nights in this great place! Excellent location - easy walk to downtown. Modern, renovated and very clean. Would agree with previous reviewers - could benefit from a binder just giving a few local suggestions of where to shop, eat, park etc. Would be helpful! Also needs a few more supplies in the kitchen and better blinds in front bedroom. Overall though, an excellent spot to visit Halifax!
Clean, great location!
We are a family of four - 2 kids, 2 adults and stayed for 4 days in mid July. I was impressed with how clean the condo was as well with how well stocked. They really had everything we could need. The two bedrooms were perfect and my son slept on the foldout couch and seemed really comfortable there . I love the mix of old and new that the condo is styled in. The old brick next to the stainless steel appliances just looked fabulous. We really loved the island.
My one and ONLY gripe is the street parking. There is not an assigned spot for this unit so you have to park on the street. Even then you have to move the car every two hours as to not get a ticket. Be sure not to park overnight on street cleaning night. We missed that on the signage and ended up with a ticket:/
Thanks for your feedback! We have included some detailed information around parking rules in the area including a nearby garage for overnight winter parking (generally no problem at other times of the year). Glad you otherwise loved the flat and we hope you come back again soon.
Great location, spacious and immaculate.
This is the second time we stayed at this property. The first time was in Oct 2017 and we stayed in the lower unit. This time we were in the upper unit. There were six adults staying in the unit and it was very comfortable. The unit has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and is very spacious. The kitchen is big with and island in the middle and served as a great gathering place. Gillian was very responsive to any questions we had and Victor even delivered an extra fan for us. Loved our stay!
So glad you stayed with us again - hope to see you again soon!
