The room also has a desk and chair, as well as plenty of storage space in a closet.Here are some of the veggies and berries from our backyard garden last July (2014). There will be more this year!

The house overlooks the Halifax Harbour and Dartmouth, which you can see from the front porch. We have extensive gardens in the front and back yard, and a nice area to eat outside. The Hydrostone Market is a short walk away, as are all major bus routes.

We've stayed with Airbnb in three different countries and enjoyed our experience every time. Because of this, we decided to rent out a room in our own house.

Our place is a 1,500 square foot post-WWII house on a hill overlooking the Halifax Harbour and Dartmouth across the straights. The main floor has hardwood floors, a large kitchen, a working fireplace with a wood stove insert, and lots of light flowing in from the east-facing front windows. We also have a large selection of graphic novels in English and French in the living room for your perusal, plus a record collection that's always looking for more attention!

This room contains a double (twin) bed, a closet and a selection of contemporary art. You also have access to unlimited wireless internet, and can use the kitchen and back patio (with BBQ and patio furniture) whenever you'd like.

The house is in the north end of Halifax, a 5-minute walk to the shops, cafés and restaurants of the Hydrostone Market and a 3-minute walk to Needham Memorial Park. It's also a 5-minute walk to two major bus routes, one going directly downtown in 10 minutes, and another going to the two university campuses in the south end (Dalhousie and Saint Mary's), before heading downtown (about 30 minutes).

We enjoy having company and if our schedules sync, may include you in some of our Nova Scotia adventures.

In 2016, we received nearly 100 separate bookings. We always make sure the bed sheets are clean and the room has received cleaning attention before the next guest(s) arrive. We also tidy up regularly, clean the toilet and shower as needed, and make regular use of our dishwasher.

We expect our guests to tidy up after themselves, and to keep their room in good shape. Our guests are mostly great on these fronts.

Finally, we rent a second bedroom in the same house on AirBNB with the same parameters.

- wireless internet. (Network: Motorola 97456; Password: Haligonian).
- vegetable gardens.
- raspberry and blueberry bushes.
- use of kitchen, living room, dining room, full bathroom.
- washer and dryer in basement.
- bedroom with keyed lock.
- record player and graphic novels.

- As much as possible given our schedule.
- Nous parlons français très bien y Darryl entiende el espanol un poco.
- We have hosted guests visiting from: Canada (Montréal, Toronto, Rimouski, Sudbury, Kitchener-Waterloo, Sydney, Halifax, Vancouver, Owen Sound, Winnipeg, Nanaimo, Victoria, Calgary, Moncton, Guelph, London, Inuvik, Hamilton, St. John's, Sherbrooke, Ottawa, Edmonton, Thunder Bay), the U.S. (Portland [OR & ME], NYC, Chicago, Berkeley, Boston, Atlanta, Madison, Gainesville, San Francisco, Burlington [VT]), Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Spain, Brazil, Czech Republic, Italy, Colombia, Mexico, France, Ireland, Ukraine, China, England, and Kenya.
- We have included guests in many outdoor activities, including berry picking and fishing.
- We also provide guests with quite a bit of local knowledge and travel tips!

- It's close to downtown (30-minute walk)
- It's close to all of the neighbourhoods we want to spend time in (Agricola, Gottingen, Hydrostone, North End, Windsor)
- Great views of harbour and Dartmouth across the way
- Easy access to bridges, Bedford, Sackville, all major highways
- Lots of park space for running and exercise

There are several major bus routes to downtown and south end universities (SMU and Dal), which make this a great location.

1. We have one parking space in our driveway that we're happy to provide to guests; please advise us at least 5 days ahead of time so that we can arrange alternative parking for our car.
2. If our schedule permits it, we can pick up guests at the airport. We charge $40 one-way (cabs are $65 one-way). Please request a ride at least 5 days in advance.
3. Please advise us of your arrival time at least a week in advance. If you're driving, an estimated time of arrival will do!
4. Please note that we rent two rooms in the same house with the same parameters. If you'd like to book both rooms at the same time, please contact us to inquire.

Darryl war ein großartiger Gastgeber. Er hat gerne alle Fragen beantwortet und hat alles getan, dass man sich wohl fühlt. Die Räumlichkeiten waren sehr sauber, die Nachbarschaft sicher. Ich kann diese Unterkunft wärmstens empfehlen :)

Auf meiner Durchreise habe ich drei Nächte bei Darryl verbracht. Darryl war sehr nett und respektvoll und hatte sogar eine Stadtkarte und ein Duschhandtuch parat. Super war auch, dass er mich vom Busterminal abgeholt hat. Daneben kam ich in den Genuss eines köstlichen, frisch gefangenen und von ihm zubereiteten Fisches. Das Zimmer ist gemütlich, das Bett komfortabel und die Lage des charmanten Hauses ruhig. Die beiden Mitbewohner sind ebenfalls sehr nett.

Nuestra estadía fue lo que buscábamos, ubicación cerca al centro, supermercado, tiendas de conveniencia y restaurantes. La casa, es vieja sin embargo, goza de las comodidades necesarias para pernoctar. La habitación, es pequeña pero con comodidades. Baño impecable. Harris & Delices amables y considerados. Recomendados!

I had an excellent stay at Darryl&Délice's house. The room is comfy, ultra-clean, really well arranged, with a nice view and a great light :) Located in a peaceful and convenient neighbourhood, perfect if you have your own car. If you're on foot the bus to Dowtown is just 2 blocks away from the door. Otherwise you'll have to walk 45 minutes to the city center, but it's worth the walk to have a peek at the colorful houses! I didn't have the chance to meet Délice but Darryl has been helpful and convenient with my late arrival, and also very friendly. Loved it :)

The neighborhood is beautiful. The house is nice and clean. The room is nice, however it is relatively small. The bus station is about 2 minutes walking. The bus transports you to Halifax shopping center, or downtown within 15 min. Darryl was cooperative. I enjoyed the stay there very much. Thanks Darryl for hosting me.

Check in was simple. The room was clean and cozy. Beautiful sunrises through the window. Close to the water and walkable to downtown. Friendly hosts, comfortable vibe in their home, and the amazing warmth of Halifax made for a great experience.

Nutzerprofil von Darryl & Délice

We're pleased to be AirBNB hosts.

Darryl is originally from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, but lived most of his life in Ottawa. He now lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he works as a professor at a small liberal arts university near the Atlantic ocean. He loves his job; teaching is a passion of his.

He speaks French and English fluently, as well as some intermediate Spanish.

Délice moved to Halifax in 2015 from Québec, where she lived most of her life. The 5 travel destinations in her bucket list are (in no particular order): South Africa, South Africa, South Africa, South Africa, and Brazil (no, that's not a typo!). She likes all things chocolate and drinks only hot water.

She also speaks English and French fluently.
