The Pebble is a beautifully maintained 1920’s house in the quiet Armdale section of Halifax. Through the arched doorway lies a comfortable welcoming foyer and living room, and upstairs there are two suites that are so comfortable you just want to move in. Both are ensuite and both overlook the water. Gourmet breakfasts get prepared before your eyes in an easy manner that contradicts all the preparation involved. All this is down to the owners Liz and Dave O’Carroll; but if I’m honest, the Pebble is largely driven by Liz’s exuberant, gregarious personality. Nothing is too much for them to do for you and Liz draws you away from your room to the farm kitchen below– the Pebble’s engine room – for a cup of tea or coffee that can be accompanied, if you show interest, by reminiscences of their old country, Ireland. Meanwhile the family’s two Westies – McDuff and Sieve --patter around completely at home with the comings and goings of miscellaneous people. It’s a great place that puts the visitor at home in another’s home and also able to retreat into serenity upstairs if you wish –or if you want to take the dogs for a walk, that’s ok too. My wife and I have stayed three times and wouldn’t think of going anywhere else when we are in Halifax. The mixture of old and new world is intoxicating and the owners are a delight to get to know.
