About michael dunbar

Hi there,

I'm an airline pilot by trade and enjoy travelling and seeing new places(cliche, I know). I'm a member of a few different networks in the Calgary area, and head up my own small Real Estate investment company(Financed Homes Inc.) together with my business partner.

I'm new to hosting on VRBO but, looking forward to providing a great stay for those coming to Calgary.

I hope that my guests will treat my place as their own, as I plan to do as a guest myself. As a host, I'm easy going and can always be contacted. I want to make sure you're taken care of!

I hope to hear from you soon, and all your adventures as an VRBO host or guest.


michael dunbar purchased this apartment in 2013

Why michael dunbar chose Connaught

I bought it because it simply had the best layout of any of the condos I looked at with my Realtor. I've only lived in Calgary since 2012 and I bought in 2013. It's in a great location, close to all that you need.

What makes this apartment unique

You won't find a better layout anywhere. A large kitchen, open to the family/TV room is what sold me. The place has been completely redone to make it modern, and take advantage of the great floor plan!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Calgary for a couple of days on my way to Banff. This Condo is in a great location - not quite on the main strip but every easy walk (5-7 min) to 17th st (ave?) with restaurants/shopping/bars etc. 5-7 min walk to the train station and then an easy ride to the zoo! The Condo building felt secure although the neighborhood felt very safe anyway. Gated covered parking spot available. Bedrooms were a decent size with a very comfy bed. Packets of coffee and a bottle of wine were left for me -very thoughtful! Good WiFi and TV. Place was clean and modern. Owner was very easy to get a hold of and I got lucky and was able to drop my bags off early before check - in and then could go wander around. Downstairs is a delicious shawarma place and a block away is a great neighborhood pub with great food and good beers. I would definitely stay here again!

Great Downtown Access

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I stayed for just a few days while at a convention downtown. The rate was excellent, access to amenities fast and easy, and it was easy to feel at home. If you are in need of a comfortable place to stay I would highly recommend this location as you will have everything a hotel could offer plus the comfort of home.

Great weekend in Calgary

  • 5 of 5

We were in Calgary for a Flames game and a weekend away. Condo is in a great location to get around without a vehicle. Hopped on the C train for the game, then walked back. Walked downtown on Saturday to see the sights. Michael (our host) met us on Friday and stayed around to talk about potential activities for the weekend. Highly recommended.

We loved the area! Everything was easily accessible and everything is pretty much in walking distance. Nice, clean place. Had everything we needed with our 2 kids. Wish we could had stayed longer but it was rented out because it's that great. We also really loved then noodle house downstairs.
