About Dalia

Friendly, easy going, welcoming and respectful family of four. We love meeting new people and welcoming them to our beautiful house. We are environmentally friendly, enjoy nature and try to have minimum impact on it no matter what we do. Our main interests are outdoors, skiing, biking, hiking, travelling, doing crafts, reading and sometimes watching a fun movie together.

Dalia purchased this house in 2013

Why Dalia chose Southwest Calgary

It is an extremely well kept house in a matured property. It has lovely backyard, lots of privacy and quietness in the middle of the city. Our neighbours are wonderful people and we are so close to everything we need from shopping centres to parks and gyms.

What makes this house unique

Many updates and upgrades throughout the property and it never ends:) Beautiful lifetime and environmentally friendly natural clay roof, cozy fireplace inside, lots of wood work and natural wood/material furniture inside. Interior decor is very tasty, not too much and not too little - just what you need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is in a wonderful neighborhood and has been perfectly suited for travelers like me and my daughter. We could walk or use public transport where we needed. Of course, to have a car is much more convenient in a city like Calgary. The hosts have been wonderful throughout our stay. The rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. We found everything we needed and more. We will definitely come back again!

Very elegant, bright space

  • 5 of 5

The place is very well taken care of. We felt at home right after we stepped in. Dalai was very prompt in her responses and thorough with all the instructions. The suite is cool and nice which was great to relax after long hot days of walk in Calgary. The hosts are very respectful and we felt very secure in their house. Thank you for having us!

Welcoming and nice hosts

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Dalia's house. The family is very nice and welcoming. We had everything we needed. The suite is pretty spacious. I loved the little kitchen! So bright and fully equipped. The heat lamp in the shower was great. We are definitely staying here again during the next visit.

We had everything we could need for a short visit

  • 5 of 5

Dalia's place is very welcoming and cozy. We enjoyed meeting the family and really felt cared for. The suite gets a bit chilly if the temperature outside drops to drastic 5C - this was unexpected given the time of the year. Dalia was quick enough to bring in the space heaters to keep us warm. The beds were comfy, everything clean and tidy. We did not lack a thing and having host's care and attention is something that would definitely bring us back to this place next time we are in Calgary.

Did not live up to my expectations.

  • 3 of 5

Parking was on the street in front of the house which could be a problem if the neighbors had visitors. The only thing seperating us from upstairs home owner was curtains hanging at the bottom of the stairs. We were asked to remove shoes just inside the front door. The kitchen is very very small. The bathroom had one hanging towel which looked like it had been used. No extras to be seen. We were asked to be very quiet after 8 pm and there wasn't a TV. If you wanted to use the fireplace you had to ask permission and there was no thermostat downstairs. Maybe my expectations were too high but we were very uncomfortable and disappointed. We left after just one night. We were scheduled for 6.

Owner's Response: Hi Diana, Thank you for your comments. We made every effort to communicate the description of the suite as it is. I encourage guests to ask any questions before arrival, however, I received none from you. As you mentioned you did not check out our photos that are on the website and did not know where you were going until you arrived. I understood that the main reason for your departure was not knowing this was a house and not a completely separate rental unit. This is clearly shown in the listing. I also understand you were disappointed of not being able to receive the refund, however, I did make an exception and refunded extra guest stay fee. All of the things you mention have been clearly stated in the rental agreement, which you accepted before booking. Fireplace requires permission for your own safety - it is gas operated and I would not want any of our guests to end up causing themselves injuries. Thermostat is not necessary at +25C, however, thank you for pointing this out. I do appreciate your remarks and again sorry for not ending up to be a place of your vacation. Sincerely, Dalia

Very welcoming place

  • 5 of 5

I had one of the best experiences staying in this suite. It is clean, tidy and has provided me with everything I needed for the stay. Dalia and the family are so welcoming and caring. The girls were just adoring. I enjoyed parking in front of the house which did not get busy except one evening due to a gathering in the neighborhood. I know I have a favourite place to stay when I come back to Calgary.
