About the property

My other 2Bdr condo on VRBO for the last two years has more 5* reviews than anyone else in Calgary. This is my 1Bdr affordable alternative with rates around half of the 2Bdr unit - down to as low as $39/night for longer stays.

It's located on the Confederation park bike path - one of the prettiest parks in Calgary. Walking distance to University of Calgary, SAIT, ACAD, North Hill Mall and LRT - a great inner city location. It's a safe building in a safe neighborhood with great building security.

It's a bright basement suite. It has a kitchenette with an induction cooktop and microwave but no full stove.

A great apartment in Northwest Calgary

  • 5 of 5

Gordon's place was welcoming and perfect for exploring Calgary. It was close to Confederation Park,which is lovely for walking and running. The apartment was spacious with a living room, kitchen and a large bedroom. The kitchen had a one stove top burner which was great for cooking simple meals. The public transit was about 10 min walk away, and downtown was easily accessible.

Gordon was a superb communicator with rapid response to any questions. He was incredibly kind, and even drove us to Heritage Park on our last day ( a beautiful place, highly recommended) as we were not sure how to get there on public transit.

I would recommend for sure even for more extended stays. Thank you Gordon for making us feel so welcome:-)

Great one bedroom unit

  • 5 of 5

The five night stay was great. The unit had everything we needed during our stay. We were close to downtown, the zoo, supermarkets and the highway. We spent most days travelling to Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper and our location was great. It was an easy on and off the highway. It was great to just come back after a long day and jus relax and rest up for the next day. Can't say enough about 'Gordon. He made sure everything was ready for our stay and when we discovered we had under booked made arrangements for an additional night for us without any hassles what so ever. Would definitely recommend this place any anyone looking for a good place to stay while visiting the area.

Clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We were in Calgary to celebrate our 50th anniversary at the Calgary Stampede. We found it very convenient to drive a few blocks to park at the Sears mall and get passes for the C train. We did wish there were some ice cube trays and a large pitcher to make ice tea. Would recommend to others.

Cozy basement in agreat area.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for a month from Gordon and during the whole process he was very friendly and full supportive. The place works fine for a couple and a friend as it has a sofa and a bedroom with bed. Kitchen has a good size and in a quiet neighboorhood. Close to a walk distance of Safeway and the Ctrain (15 minutes) and near bus stops. Worked fine for us during the whole month. If you have a car, it has some space to park. Gordon was a great landlord providing all support as when we arrived it was extra cold in Calgary. He brouht extra heater and blankets. The place was clean and nice to stay during our time in Calgary.

Clean, and great location.

It was perfect for what i needed. Great communication from the owner, even with my late booking during the holidays. No surprises with the place, and reasonably quiet.
