Interaction with Guests

We are young and friendly professionals. Stephanie (the owner) is a registered nurse and ex-professional performer who continues to teach for fun. Wray is an IT specialist who works from home and who often fixes guests computers and phones. Adrian (the long term room mate) is doing his PhD in chemistry and is only home to sleep. 420 friendly.

Our guest interaction is dependent on our schedules and availability. We are very friendly and love to interact with our guests. However, sometimes we are very busy and not around much.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is quiet with many conveniences nearby. We love how close our neighborhood is to the airport but how easy it is to get downtown. We also love the many neighborhood features including a library, fitness center and pool just a 5 minute walk from our home.

There are casual restaurants and take-out foods at a variety of price points, two grocery stores, Starbucks, liquor stores, pubs, pharmacies and banks all within a few minutes walk.

We fully recommend you borrow our bikes to explore the hundreds of kilometers of bike paths accessible to our home. Nose Creek Park is a hidden jem just a short ride away. Nose Hill Park is also a short walk or ride away with fantastic views of the city.

  • We didn't get to meet Stephanie because she was at a conference. Wrey showed us around then the next morning had to leave also. Otherwise, it was a great spot to stay at. We took the busses to downtown daily and it was an easy straight shot. It's walking distance from grocery stores so that's helpful! Their place was difficult to find so definitely take them up on their offer for detailed directions before you arrive. It was a memorable spot to our vacation.

Wray is an IT specialist with a passion for hardware, fixing phones and all kinds of computers. He manages residential and commercial clients.

Wray taught himself Japanese and loves practicing his language skills with Japanese speakers. Both of us are very busy with our professional commitments, but we love having a home full of interesting people. In our spare time we are very active in the local Burning Man scene. We love going to local community events, but we also enjoy staying in and playing a board game. Depending on our schedules we'd love to invite you out with us or have a night in playing Settlers of Catan. No matter how busy we are, you are always welcome!
