About Joy and Vincent - Collingwood Retreat
We grew up in Calgary and wouldn't leave it for all the money in the world. We love the culture, the food, and the proximity to the mountains. Hope you feel the same when you come for a visit.

Very easy to get to, great owners and comfortable home with lots of space. The deck and bbq in backyard are a definite bonus.
Stampede and family gathering in Calgary
We spent a week in Calgary to attend the Stampede and a family reunion. The location was great. We were able to go downtown on the CTrain at the University station close by. The house itself was perfect for a family gathering. The children used the family room downstairs which opened to the backyard, thus keeping the upstairs for the grownups to visit. But most of all, Joy and Vincent were wonderful hosts. They were in constant touch with us to make sure we have everything we need and were very responsive to our requests. We would return to this property.
Hi Donna. Thank you so much for posting your review. It was an honour to host your family stay and celebration!
Best wishes to everyone.
Comfortable home with convenient location
We rented this lovely home for an out of town wedding. The home appears exactly as it shows on the website. Clean and newly updated. Cozy yet roomy on the first level with a more private level downstairs. Rooms were spacious and comfortable beds in all rooms. Pretty central to everything. We were 10-15 min from everywhere we needed to go. The owners were very pleasant and quick to respond to emails or questions we had during our stay. They even provided a complimentary pass to Banff National Park, which I would highly recommend seeing! Definitely a highlight of our trip. Check out was simple compared to other properties we’ve stayed. No stripping the beds, laundry loads or other checklists. Overall a very pleasant and comfortable stay at a lovely, updated home. We would definitely consider staying again if traveling back to Calgary.

10 out of 10
The owners were absolutely fantastic to deal with! I would absolutely stay here again or any other property the have. I can't say enough about their hospitality. The house was exactly as described and was perfect for our family. Thank you!
Hi Kris. Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. We appreciated hosting you and your family and wish everyone the best.
great home in calgary
The property was really clean and in a great location for what we were in Calgary for.
Joy was very communicative and was quick to answer questions for me as this was an area of Calgary that I was unfamiliar with. Its close to grocery stores, downtown, plenty of food options, and coffee. What more could you ask for?
The house has a garage which is nice and not always an option when renting. The inside was redone and very nice. Not to mention the beds were very comfortable (we all slept like babies). A lot of places that you rent have beds but they aren't the best, plan on getting good sleep in Calgary!
I would highly recommend this home to anyone that is traveling to Calgary if its size and layout fit your needs.
Hi Dylon. Thank you so much for staying with us. We hope the team brought home some gold! :)
Best wishes and perhaps we will hear from you again for the X-Games.
