After purchasing this home in May 2015, it underwent 3 months of major renovations (new electrical, plumbing, heating, insulation, windows and doors, siding, ceiling, walls, floors, fixtures - everything!). The area where this apartment is was completely gutted and rebuilt. While this is an older home in an established neighbourhood, this is essentially a brand new space.

Amazing place that is near Halifax (10min drive). Located behind a small park with a beautiful pond. Tracy was very clear with her instructions and we had no issues at all. Highly recommend!

Great overnight stay. Very central location to everything, but at the same time was residential so very quiet and quaint area. Backed on to beautiful park and lake (only 100m away). Accommodations were great, no complaints!! We have 2 kids, and the fact that the hosts left shelves and shelves of books really helped keep the kids busy during down times. Thank you again, great time!

Tracy's place is the most organized airbnb we've ever stayed in. There were so many items (shampoo, lotion, q-tips, kitchen ingredients/tools) provided that we were very grateful for. Having access to a washer and dryer was so nice! It has a great layout that made us feel very comfortable. It was so easy to check-in and out of which we appreciated as we were on the go. It is located closely to so many amenities and although we didn't get a chance to explore the neighbourhood, we would love to return one day and spend more time there. Tracy was a great host! She was very accommodating of our baby, and she checked in with us while we were there to make sure we had everything we needed.

Wonderful suite. Perfect for travelers needing real living space - includes full kitchen with all the necessary items as well as a stocked washer/dryer. Bed also super comfy and the view of the forest from the windows is peaceful and quaint. Neighborhood is quiet and safe. Definitely worth the few extra dollars to have a home away from home. Would recommend to anyone traveling to Dartmouth area!

Tracy's place was such a pleasure to walk into when we first arrived. Everything was clean and cheerful. There was easy access to a nice walking path to the nearby lake. The location is central and easily accessible.

Hi! We purchased this home in May 2015. After 3 months of intense renovations, we are ready to share it. Here is a little bit about the “upstairs neighbours” (i.e. the hosts), Tracy and John:

Tracy is an avid rower and rowing coach. When not on the water, she is busy as a parent and volunteer. Through the renovation process, she has discovered a love of power tools. John would like to be a professional golfer, but must settle for golfing on weekends only.

We enjoy camping in our 1987 Volkswagen Westfalia camper, travelling near and far, reality TV, and spending time with our large extended families. And we like long walks on the beach too.
