I rented a cozy Guest Room from David for a week in mid February. It looks different than the one in the picture as David likes to renovate and reorganize this place frequently. It's very clean and comfy. The location is very close to downtown and there is parking available downstairs. There is an LRT station 5-10 minute walk from his place. Do note that other rooms could be rented as well so you might be sharing kitchen and the washroom with others. David is very personable and is open to communication and seems well traveled. Any issues or questions I had were resolved promptly. I would recommend staying at David's place.
No issues experienced. Host was very responsive to messages, which i liked too. Clean. Recommended!
David's home is very clean and well equipped. Comfortable room. He was friendly and hospitable. Good location near the lrt (although difficult to drag a suitcase there in the snow). Handy door system but you do need an app-friendly device and be sure to arrange when access expires. Would appreciate more communication about other guests.
I had a wonderful stay at David's place, cozy but enough space, SUPER CLEAN, quiet, the washroom was very clean as well. He has this really cool app that opens and locks his door, I didn't know how it worked at first but he was so nice explaining it to me! I really liked how it's close to downtown but not too far either, very conveniently located next to a grocery store too. David is super nice and friendly, but also respectful of my need for privacy. I didn't use the kitchen but I could see that it was very clean as well. The house manual is very well organized and pretty clear, and he's open to suggestions re:making improvements on it. Overall, I recommend David's place and would stay here again when I visit Edmonton again.
David is a wonderful host. The place was clean and neat and looked like the pictures. Convenient location. Highly recommended.
Felt welcome. The listing accurately described the room and apartment. Location was great if working downtown.
The room was clean and very near the area I needed to be. That was convenient. David seemed like a nice guy.

Originally from the Cycladic isles of Greece I now call Edmonton my home. Living in the Bellevue community, close to city centre, is great fun as I am very close to all the major events. I also like to indulge in the cultural offerings the capital city’s downtown has to offer such as the gallery, theater, library, and cozy Jasper Ave pubs, especially with the Light Rail Transit a block away from home.
I am an MSc student in Psychopharmacology at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Alberta. The research I am involved in combines genetics and pharmacology to develop personalized treatments for patients suffering from addiction and/or mental illness.
I love playing and talking about tennis so my condo is filled with references to the sport I love. I enjoy travel (especially to warm ocean-side destinations), food, music, languages and exploring the beautiful landscape that Canada offers. I have an interest in dinosaurs and the archeology of ancient civilizations.
My condo is always ready for visitors. I like to keep it clean and uncluttered, such as you would expect a good hotel space. I also have this constant urge for home-improvement so some returning guests may find the condo changes slightly from visit to visit.
Vincent van Gogh once said "The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore." I often find myself when I travel running off the beaten path and toward the "sea" of opportunity that holds the promise of some adventure.
