"We stayed at Kalok's apartment for 1 and a half weeks in late October 2014 for an event at the Stampede. There was myself and 2 gals with me. I took the bedroom which was perfect, good bed and tons of closet space. One gal had the queen inflatable which she said was actually comfortable and the other brought a camping like cot. One review suggested the place fits only 2 but frankly 2 couples or family members or good friends could make due just fine with the amenities kalok offered which makes the price very affordable for what you get. First off he is the easiest and nicest landlord you will meet! His girlfriend is equally super. He worked around our busy schedule to finally show us around and give us the keys. He spent a full hour answering questions and showing me the entire building. The home could not be in a better location for stampeders or folks in town for business in the Calgary core area. 50 steps to the sky-train and about 5 minutes to the saddledome, Agrium, etc... The BEST Belgian bakery is next door, Sunterra for groceries and great restaurants within walking distance. The parkade is warm, safe and spacious it fit my f-350 4 door dually just fine! The view of the stampede and beyond is pretty remarkable and the barbecue and chairs make for a nice outdoorsy spot. I use vrbo and air b and b etc.... frequently and this is one of the nicer all around homes I have rented for the money I have no hesitation saying that with the bonus that Kalok is just super. (I have had some unsavory owners withhold deposits and the like with no cause and harass me for how many people were staying with me etc...) Kalok is trusting and communicative and a pleasure to deal with. Hope that long winded reviews helps folks! Paul, Victoria, BC"

"This is the 1st time we used VRBO to rent a property and all in all it was a great experience. My husband and I were looking at renting two hotel rooms as my daughter and son-in-law have 2 children under 2. I saw this house and thought it would be much better to have the space to relax comfortably and for the 21 month old to roam instead of being in a hotel room for 5 days. We then invited 2 couples from our family traveling from back East. This house is very clean both inside and out and is in a really quiet neighborhood. The beds were very comfortable with lots of extra bedding. There were 8 adults and 2 under 2 and no shortage of linens. The description and photos are pretty accurate, a few updates in furniture, but nicely decorated. I love the kitchen table but a bit small for this many people. I didn’t see a ping pong table downstairs but a queen size bed which worked out better for us. It is in an alcove which had lots of room but there was no privacy, i.e. curtain or divider. The owner was great to deal with and very accommodating. Having access to the garage was very handy with the little ones. The other drawback is that there is very little to no closet space for hanging garments as they contain the owner’s belongings. There were a few things in the fridge, not much, but when it came time to leave it was difficult to remember what belonged to the homeowner, especially because there were 4 couples who brought different items. We would definitely rent this home again."

"Birch Haven was perfect for our trip to Banff. The host's directions on how to get there, park, and find our way in were super clear. All parts of the process went smoothly! We were very thankful for the grocery store within walking distance and all the amenities available to us. We had everything we needed and felt right at home!
