Beautiful little guest houses, well equipped, great location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Charming Cottage; Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Charming Garden Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This well-supplied cozy apartment was the perfect place to spend a week in Calgary during Stampede! Owners Cathy & Tim did a great job on the decor and quickly respond to any request. Great laundry facilities! The parking pass is a big plus also. Our pup enjoyed basking in the garden sun!

For the comfort and safety of senior clients, a non-skid tub mat and some sort of railing in the stairway would be of help.

A quaint convenient suite in the heart of the city

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at this place in the Sunnyside neighbourhood in Calgary. Two blocks to the Bow river and downtown. Fun neighbourhood close to many shops and restaurants. Beautiful trails along the river. We even walked to the Stampede parade. The unit is very well kept and comfortable. Nice touches with amenities, decor and kitchen supplies. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a great place in the city.

nice 1 br apartment

  • 3 of 5

Nice apartment in the basement of an older house in the community of Sunnyside. The bed was really comfortable, it was furnished simply and adequately for our needs for the 4 days we were there. The owners were prompt to respond to our emails. We loved walking around the neighborhood; there is a cafe and supermarket nearby and its an easy walk to downtown.
