Kaitlin and Ben's place truly is a home away from home.
I felt very welcome, the host was great, the neighbourhood was great.
The space was quiet and comfortable. It was wonderfully cool and dry on a hot and muggy summer's day. I see that for winter they have individually controlled heat so winter stays would also be comfortable.
Heck, the shower even has a water filter for the guests' comfort, towels and the Wi-Fi password were there waiting for me, and the bed was perfectly made.
As a business traveller, the Wi-Fi's speed and reliability were a big plus. I got some good e-mails done before leaving in the morning.
I had a fantastic stay at Kaitlin and Ben's place. They gave me the room in the basement. It was nice and cool. It has a table and its own bathroom.
It was a real highlight on the first evening when I came home a was offered a glass of wine and invited to join the card game they were playing with some friends.
I got some good pointers for restaurants and other things to do, which helped a lot to make my stay in Fort McMurray a pleasure.
I spent nearly a month at Kaitlin and Ben's home. They were so warm and welcoming, and made my time away from my family so much easier. As an animal lover, I fell in love with both their dogs and (email hidden)ey were so sweet and well behaved! If you need a place to stay in Fort Mac, this is IT.
This was my second stay with Kaitlin and Ben. As a businessman I often travel to Fort McMurray and stay for a week or more at a time. Ben and Kaitlin (and their two dogs) were very friendly and accommodating. The facilities were very good - large bedroom with an excellent bed and lots of storage. The bedroom became my office for my stay. The bathroom had a fine shower. I also had full use of the kitchen and its appliances, dishes and utensils, and lots of fridge and cupboard space.
The location was easy to find and excellent for my needs.
Critical to me was the presences of a strong, secure wi-fi connection.
In a town where hotels charge exorbitant rates, Kaitlin and Ben certainly helped make my trip a success.
Staying with Kaitlin & Ben was like coming home to family (but the really cool kind of family who you actually WANT to hang out with). There's a lot of joy and energy in this home: from the lovingly affectionate dogs who gladly greet you each time you come & go, to the generous way the Kaitlin & Ben extend themselves to each other, to their guests, and to the larger community.
The house was comfortable and our room was wonderfully private and tucked away downstairs, but more than a nice 'house', Ben & Kaitlin made the experience here much more like a home.
Kaitlin and Ben were both fantastic hosts and the room was lovely and homely. They made me feel very welcome during my stay and I would be very happy to recommend this accommodation to others, without a doubt.
Kaitlin and Ben have offered more than an Airbnb, it felt like home for three days ! Totally worth staying with these two and sharing stories ! Thanks again !

About the Host, Kaitlin
Hello! My name is Kaitlin and I am full of life and fun! I am truly grateful for the opportunity to host world wonderers/ visitors and hear their stories. I moved to Fort Mcmurray a few years ago from Vancouver Island and have a profound connection with the environment so living here has really opened my eyes to what we are all a part of. I live with my husband Ben (an avid surfer and musician) and a beautiful roommate Adrienne (Chinese Medicine Doctor and adventurist) in our home of 3 lovely dogs and a cat. WE live right of the Birchwood trails in which we run, cross-country ski, bike, walk, etc everyday depending the season of course. We love to eat organic healthy food, enjoy conversation (sometimes over wine other times over tea) and are all very active. Myself I am a Yoga Instructor and Holistic Health Coach and love to travel. We have been using Air bnb for years now and would never look back! Meeting locals is truly to me what its all about. I hope you will come stay as this frozen North can use more bright and shiny visitors any time!
