Great location, good space but needs some TLC

  • 4 of 5

We booked the property for almost three weeks over Christmas. We paid for an extra night so my brother could come in early and we could check out late. My brother arrived to a house that was filthy and had to spend a couple of hours cleaning. When I arrived the house was still dirty- after 30 hours of travelling and more than 5k spent I had to wipe walls down (food on walls and cupboards), clean bathrooms and generally feel like I could eat and sleep. When we complained Susan said the prior guests had trashed the place. I had to complain a second time in order to get an offer of a clean at Susan’s expense. Once this was done the house was better and more liveable. For the price I think the house needs some love. For example the rugs on the floor are really dirty and the curtains are shabby. There are door handles missing on furniture, nowhere to put your luggage. It just needs an update. The kitchen is great but lacking in serving bowls and the cupboards are full of things that other people leave behind, a lot out of date.

Susan is a very responsive host and overall the house was great for our large family. We were toasty warm in minus 22 weather and enjoyed our stay in Calgary. The location is incredibly convenient and close to everything. It is not shown in the pictures or mentioned that the house backs on to an extremely busy street. This was fine in winter when the house is closed up, but I think road noise would be an issue in summer.

Excellent location, very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of 7 with small children) stayed here for two months and had a great time. The house is comfortable and has many nice bedrooms. The kitchen is well-appointed with anything you need for cooking; we especially enjoyed using the gas grill out back. It is a short walk to the C-Train and convenient to a nice indoor shopping mall and, importantly, the shortest walk to a ToysRUs. It's also very close to Southland Leisure Center, which has a fantastic swimming pool that we used regularly. Everyone in the family had a blast and enjoyed weekend getaways to Canmore, Banff, and Jasper. Thanks, Sue, for a great stay!!

Great family residence in SE Calgary

  • 5 of 5

Well-presented home with all essentials needed for a family vacation . We stayed a week and were very comfortable.

The bedrooms, living spaces and kitchen were all well-appointed. The wifi was reliable and coped with four people being on-line simultaneously.

The deck and garden was a pleasant outside space, although the traffic noise from Bonaventure Dr was rather intrusive.

The owner was easy to contact and was very helpful when needed (which was not very much).

We would have no hesitation in renting the house again if we were in that part of Canada.

Great property: spacious, comfortable, and feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great time at this location. The common space is comfortable and homey, the rooms and beds are comfortable and relatively large, and the backyard is quiet and private.

There were some issues with the payment and Keith was extremely helpful and understanding. He made the entire process very easy and made sure we were settling into the property.

Lots of space, good facilities.

  • 5 of 5

We were 10 adults staying in Calgary for my daughter's wedding. From the moment of booking everything was straightforward. We had to change our dates and our emails were responded to very promptly and our amendments processed efficiently. The house has 5 bedrooms with 4 doubles and 1 twin bedded. All were of a good size. The downstairs layout was great and we had a lot of visiting grooms' family over the period and we never felt crushed. The BBQ on the patio was much appreciated and we hosted 20 family without any problems. The kitchen is well set up with a microwave, a dishwasher, a coffee maker and an easy to use oven. A large fridge and freezer was able to hold all the food for 10 without a problem. There were 2 bathrooms, one of which is downstairs off the largest bedroom but with a Jack and Jill arrangement so that it was still available to other guests. Great sized washer and dryer easily coped with laundry needs and there was enough soap left in the house to get us started on our first load.

This is a great property for groups - however I would warn families with younger children that the stairs are wooden and so slips on socks could be an issue.

It was so convenient with a Safeway, a shopping mall (South Centre), a liquor store, a petrol station and the C train all within a 10 minute walk of the house. A quiet corner plot. There is an Earls within walking distance.
