And I'd be happy to help direct you to whatever you're looking for to make your stay in Halifax an amazing time.
My place is only big enough for one guest when I'm here and it's just the room you're renting. When I'm out of town, I rent my whole flat out, and then it's a great spot for couples and families.
Dogs are welcome.
I love living in my central-north end Halifax home. I'm Nova Scotian, born and raised. I grew up in a house where everyone was welcome. Our home was happily shared with friends, family and really anyone who needed a place to be, for a day or night or longer. I hope I foster that same feeling of warmth & welcome here at my place.
In my work, I'm a producer and costume designer in theatre, and an administrator working in other artistic disciplines. A through line in my work is the popularizing of art forms. Sharing the language of the work with others inside and outside of the discipline.
What else to say? I'm a terrific cook, I host a weekly open house called Thirsty Thursday that starts & goes late mostly populated by people from the theatre community, I love being near the ocean and my family & feel so lucky that I get to have both right here in the city that I call home.
I'd be happy to introduce you to all that's great about the city and the gorgeous lakes, beaches, oceans, farms and forest just outside of town.
Hope to see you soon!
