Loud, but lovely location
Check in process is easy, get the key and enter. The location is close to the metro train, about a 7 minute walk. Inside and furnishings are in good condition. Lots of supplies are included, pots, pans, shampoo, soap, etc.
We pick full sized homes so that we can cook in and save money, one evening the power went out and we were unable to reach the owners, we had to eat out and would have liked to be offered a reimbursement. The power came back on later that evening, the owners replied the next day.
Our major issue with the home is the very loud noises that come from anyone being in the upstairs. Our first three days someone would be up and walking until 10pm and then up again around 4:30am. This noise would wake us up and we're pretty deep sleepers. A pipe that runs along the bedroom wall makes noise when water is being used in either unit. We had about four days of quiet and then a family with children were upstairs for two nights, they ran, jumped, knocked things over and were very loud until 10-11pm. We tried knocking on the upstairs front door, back door, rang the doorbell, they would not come to the door at all, even though they were in. So, we contacted the owners and were told they couldn't tell them "not to walk" which wasn't the complaint.
After the family left, we could hear mice (not sure if it was one or more) running in the space between our roof and the upstairs floor. But, it was quieter than walking or stomping from above, so, small favors.
WiFi would temporarily go out for between 30 seconds-2 minutes every hour or two. We did power cycle the router, but it didn't solve the issue. It would go out on all of our devices, so it wasn't our device causing it.
Without the noise issues, it would be a solid 4*-4.5* place. When you go for a two week relaxing vacation, you hope to leave behind the stress of loud noises and dealing with the neighbors.
Cozy and well located suite.
Everything we needed and an awesome location. Cozy and clean.
Cosy basement suite
Comfortable, well-equipped, great location. As described on the VRBO site.
Beautiful little guest houses, well equipped, great location
Our family rented two of the homes to attend a wedding in Calgary. It was great to be able to book 2 homes, including a basement suite, to get together with family. The location is wonderful, walking distance to downtown, very close to the river and the ridge, from where you have a nice view of the city. The homes are well equipped, nicely decorated, have good appliances. The front and backyard are very pretty, beautiful flowers, very well maintained properties. The only thing that might cause a little problem is if somebody rents the basement suite and needs it to be quiet, the noise level from upstairs is loud. If another party would be up late, you can hear every step and loud talking from upstairs. This was not an issue for us, but it could be for others.
awesome cozy spot!!
Very convenient and well appointed suite in a great neighbourhood. We will be back!

We were happy to find such a charming and comfortable place in such an awesome, artsy location. Our stay was wonderful! Cathy was friendly and helpful. We had everything we needed including insider tips from a local on the best places to go, when to go, and how to get around. Thank you Cathy, for making our vacation great!
