About Cathy Thoms

Homeowners are long time Calgarians and proud Sunnyside residents who live next door to this rental property. We waited 20 years to purchase this home and turn it into the charming rental cottage we knew it could be. The transformation of this home has been very rewarding and we look forward to sharing this lovely home and our neighborhood with people from all over the world. We love to travel as well and have tried to make this a place we would love to rent when visiting another city. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Cathy Thoms purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Cathy Thoms chose Calgary

This property is on the same block as our home and needed some loving. We have lived here for 20 years and think this is the best neighborhood in Calgary. This property is fully upgraded without loosing its old charm which was our goal.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location!!!!! It ammenities and of course its unbelievable charm....

This Suunyside cottage was perfection. Very well appointed, clean and the property has tons of character. The neighbourhood it lively with lots of shops and restaurants. Our host Kathy was super sweet and very accommodating.

Great City House

  • 5 of 5

The house was so convenient, nicely furnished and equipped as well as being very clean and tidy. My husband and I, and daughter and granddaughter were very comfortable, and we could walk to restaurants, and across the river to the city, plus the train station was just a couple of blocks away.

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

Great location and neighborhood. Walking distance to our family who live nearby but also everything else we needed - shops, restaurants and amenities of all kinds. House was cozy and clean, and appreciated comfortable beds. Would recommend this cottage to others.

  • 5 of 5

Great experience. We were two single women in Calgary for Folk Fest. This house was perfect location to walk to the park, nice neighborhood, few blocks to restaurants and cute shops. House has everything, owners quite attentive. We were told one room would have bunk beds but instead both had queens, perfect for us and certainly would be great for two couples. I loved the front porch! We never found bicycles and did not ask about it, but not sure we'd have used them. All in all, a perfect place to stay! Thanks to Cathy and Thom.
