We are in a quiet residential neighborhood, just on the edge of the Halifax peninsula. We are close to the NW Arm (the body of water that runs along the Halifax peninsula and into the harbour). There is a shopping center, local bus terminal and a Walmart just a few minutes away, and the exit to the highway is ~ 1 KM (0.6 miles) from our house. Downtown Halifax is a 10 - 15 minute drive.

Our driveway is 30' long, concrete slab, and relatively flat. I recently trimmed some of the trees so they should not be an issue. We can park our RV (10' high) there with no problems.

We do not notice it anymore, but we are relatively close to a train track. A few trains per day still use that track and occasionally there will be one or two at night.

House Rules

1) dogs are welcome, as long as you pick up after them.
2) Rather than using your generator I can provide access to a 15 amp service. Hopefully that would be sufficient. If not, then running a generator at appropriate times during the day would be OK, but not early in the morning or at night.

Access Road Conditions

Property is located right in the city, in a quite neighborhood, with very little traffic. Property has a double wide 30' long driveway that is very easy to back into.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Can park on the street, or we can juggle things around in the driveway, depending on vehicle size.

Super friendly hosts!!!

What a wonderful base to house hunt from while in the HRM. Met the hosts our last evening on their property as they were camping in PEI the week we arrived, and they were very welcoming! I would definitely stay with them again - the train behind the property was hardly a problem! Great hosts and a nice quiet place in thecity.

Great stay

We had a nice overnight stay in Halifax. We enjoyed meeting our hosts and spending time in the evening chatting with them. Their location is very convenient to the downtown waterfront including the Maritime Museum and the Citadel. We would definitely like to stay with them the next time we visit Halifax.

Wonderful Hosts + Spectacular Location!

We had a great time staying at Bluenoser’s. We found them to be extremely friendly and hospitable hosts with lots of local tips and advice. We also enjoyed hearing stories of their big adventure!

Their location couldn’t be better! They had ample space and we took a bus from the end of their street into downtown, which was really quick and convenient.

We highly recommend Bluenosers and would happily host them if they are ever in our area!
