About the owner: I am the CEO of start-up software company - Dexterity Ventures Inc. and a charitable giving platform called Place2Give.com. I grew up in Calgary, moved away for college and professional development for several years, before returning in 2002. I am actively involved in Calgary's social enterprise and volunteer communities and have dedicated my career to social change and community building.
When I am not traveling for work, I enjoy taking time off for global adventures and road trips. Because I have had such positive experiences with other VRBO rentals, I thought I would offer my place up this year as I will be gone throughout the fall and winter.
Why the Owner Chose Calgary: I bought this property for the lifestyle it has afforded me. Great restaurants, good music venues, close to downtown and because I ride my bike as a primary form of transportation in the summer, this location is ideal. Oh - and my favorite coffee shop, Caffe Rosso, is just four blocks away! If you are looking for a good latte and friendly service this is the place to go.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow: This is a World War I home. Original hardwood floors and plaster walls give it that unique 'old-school' feel, but it is the arts and crafts style that is unique. From the arched ceiling in the living room, to the over-stuffed chair by the window this is a cozy little corner of downtown Calgary.
The basement has a second living-room with comfy sofa and flat screen TV for those winter nights that you just want to curl up.
Or perhaps you want to host an apres-ski the dining room boasts a table that seats eight.
