About the Neighbourhood
Address is provided after the booking is confirmed.
Our building is located in the so called "South End" neighborhood. It is just beautiful! It is a residential area mainly made of "Victorian style" old houses. The neighborhood is also home to Dalhousie University, and our house is literally on Campus. The neighborhood is safe, clean and full of trees. It is inhabited mainly by middle and upper-middle class families (several schools around). During the day, you'll see lots of university students walking from one class to another. This neighborhood is sought-after because of its strategically central location, walking distance to downtown and all Halifax's attractions.The Hospital its across the road making it a perfect base for your stay in here.
