About This Listing
Warm and cozy in the winter time, cool and refreshing in the summer time!
A spacious comfortable room tastefully decorated with paintings by local artists and a brand new queen sized bed awaits you in this large sunny two bedroom apartment
just one block from Edmonton's trendy Whyte Avenue.
For your comfort you will also find a small fridge, microwave oven, a kettle with an assortment of teas that will make you feel right at home. Towels and linens are provided and the bathroom is shared.
Situated in the French quarter, just a few blocks away from Campus St-Jean and La Cite Francophone with it's brand new bistro style restauraunt, Cafè Bicyclette. You will also have easy access to the Boonie Doon shopping Mall, just half a block away. The mall is quite large and houses a number of shops, department stores and a large grocery store.
The kitchen is a good size, you are welcome to use it. There are a couple of empty cupboard you can put groceries in.
I am off at 7 am during the week so you will have the place to yourself. Have your morning coffee on the front deck sheltered by a beautiful linden tree. If you are here when it blossoms you can just reach over, gather some blossoms and enjoy a refreshing linden tea. I lead a pretty busy life so I am out on most evenings.
Whyte Avenue offers great restaurants and bistros and some fun original shops. 5 minutes away from the house is Millcreek Ravine with it's beautiful hiking trails that take you right by Edmonton's only outdoor swimming Pool then to the heart of Old Strathcona, home of the colourful Saturday morning Farmers Market, the Princess Theatre and home of the Edmonton Fringe Festival. Heading off in the opposite direction takes you to Gallagher Park, host of the Edmonton Folk festival: all this within walking distance. Or borrow my bike and really explore the myriad bike trails throughout the River Valley. A 15 minutes drive takes you to the University of Alberta, which is a beautiful campus to visit. If you want to use the city transit system, there is a bus stop just one block from the house.
What is great about this place is that it is close enough to walk to Old Strathcona and take in it's charms, attractions and night life, but just far enough not to get it's night noise and traffic. It is also just a 10 minutes ride to downtown from here, a 30 minute walk or a 15 minutes bus ride. This is an older treed, peaceful and quiet neighbourhood and the apartment is nice and toasty in the winter and fresh and cool in the summer time.
Je parle le français couramment si vous avez des questions. Hablo un poco de espagnol tambien si ustedes haben preguntas.

Gisele was such a pleasure to meet, she is a kind, intelligent and lovely woman as well as an amazing host! The location is perfect and the house itself is very spacious and clean with comfy bed, WiFi and everything you might need. Everything was great, I have no words to thank...!!!
Giesele was very pleasant an accommodating and the area was very quiet and convenient. The bed was most comfortable and we would recommend this accommodation. There was no TV but we found this quite pleasant.

Gisele was a wonderful hostess. She greeted me at the door, showed me around and made my husband and I feel very welcome. Our home was her home.
The bedroom was wonderfully appointed and the bed was super comfortable. The small fridge really helped as well.
Thank you Gisele.
Gisele was very quiet (which suited me fine) until the last evening when we had a great conversation. Her apartment is a fourplex but there was minimal noise from the other residents. I would be happy to stay here again. Note that there is no TV (again, which suited me fine) the wifi words well.
My girlfriend and I rented from Gisele at the last minute after turmoil at the place we were staying. She welcomed us quite graciously and warmly. Her apartment is beautiful and cozy. I highly recommend staying here to anyone visiting the Edmonton area.
