About John or Jennifer

The Orange House has been our family home for ten years, but it was time to move to something a little larger for our little two girls and two dogs. We have loved living downtown and all there is to do in the area. We have rented our neighboring property The Green House, for 5 years now, and really enjoy welcoming guests to our city and helping ensure they have the best 'local' Halifax experience. John is a local physician who is from Nova Scotia, and Jennifer is an immigrant from the beautiful state of Louisiana.

John or Jennifer purchased this house in 2005

Why John or Jennifer chose South End

This property was redone in 2005, and again expertly renovated in late 2012/early 2013, making it an amazing venue for executives or families in the heart of Halifax. The Orange house sleeps 12 people, has 3.5 bathrooms, and all the space you need to feel right at home when away from home. This house is ideal for groups visiting for vacation, events like weddings, or visiting town on business.

What makes this house unique

You will not find a more central location to enjoy all the best things Halifax has to offer, in the comfort of a beautifully maintained home that blends the character of old Halifax with the finest modern amenities.

Love this rental!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, huge well kept home, and very clean. Hosts were very responsive and friendly when we had questions.

Only downside is that there is not much parking besides street side so just keep that in mind when planning. Would recommend to anyone!

Perfect Halifax house!

  • 5 of 5

This home rental was amazing! It afforded a diverse range of spaces and rooms for our group and had space for everyone to spread out and work through a week long conference. The house is super convenient to the convention centre, waterfront, and night life, and right across the street from a huge park. Everything is well lit and safe at night. We did not have a car, took the bus from the airport, walked to and from the convention centre daily, walked out at night, and even walked to the grocery store to stock up for the week and benefit from the well stocked kitchen.

Family gathering in Nova Scotia

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as promised. Awesome location within easy walking to the waterfront and downtown attractions. The owner was very helpful. We were 4 couples (family), and had lots of space to be together or to spread out. Would recommend this property and if we return to Halifax would love to stay again . Thanks !!

Idéal pour la famille

  • 3 of 5

La maison est bien située. Le centre ville, le quai, les restaurants et la citadelle sont accessibles à pied. La maison est très confortable et la cuisine est rénovée. J'ai apprécié la grandeur de la chambre principale ainsi que la chambre de bain adjacente. Points négatifs, la poignêe de la porte arriêre est brisée et un des lits du 2e êtage est sous un plafond en pente, ce n'est pas agréable d'y dormir.
