About Paige Dawes

The kids have moved out!!! We are a professional couple who would like to reduce our professional commitments and focus on more home time. We have a beautiful home close to campus with an amazing garden, fish pond, outdoor fireplace, all accessible to our guests. We like to travel, garden and cook. As hosts, we are available but non intrusive. We have travelled all over the world and when we travel, we generally tend to rent accommodation similar to ours so we appreciate the extra touches in the kitchen , or the living room or the bathroom, which make a trip, whether for business or holiday, a little more relaxing. Forget hotels, stay in our place and enjoy a real home!!!

Paige Dawes purchased this house in 1988

Super cozy and homey

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. The owners were so welcoming and accommodating to our needs. The rooms are cozy and we felt right at home. It is located in a great spot near the university and just a short drive from all kinds of amenities. We will definitely use this property again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Saskatoon for the first time. We had a few requests and Judy was extremely accomodating and responded quickly. We were there for a wedding so it was fantastic to come back to the suite to relax before the reception. The accomodation is very comfortable with lovely decor. The back yard is amazing and a great place to curl up with a book over looking the gardens or enjoy a fire. A truly lovely place that I would definitely come back to whenever I am in Saskatoon. Thank you for your kind hospitality!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A very nice basement suite and a beautiful yard to relax in. We were pleasantly surprised that the suite looks exactly like the photos provided. Located in a very nice area of Saskatoon with a short walk to the University. The hosts are very accommodating and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. We would definitely stay here again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The suite is exactly as the pictures showed. Such a peaceful yard with places to sit in the shade or the sun. Nothing like coffee in the garden in the morning. Everything you need for a home away from home. Owners are very friendly but you feel like you have the place to yourself. We would definitely stay again.

Notes:
We have a very quiet home although we do have a black Lab upstairs living with us. We prefer non smokers and non partyiers as we live upstairs. You are welcome to have guests over as long as they are reasonably quiet. We are happy to provide extras upon request as we have another bedroom in the basement immediately adjacent to the suite which can be used as an office or extra bedroom. If you need something that is not in the suite, chances are we have it upstairs and can provide it for you ie unusual cooking utensils, basic spices etc.
