A beautiful 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, a spacious & open floor plan, gleaming hardwood laminate floors, a bright south facing kitchen. Located a block from the best vibrant pubs, cafes, restaurants, shopping and amenities. Walk to everything, including transit and city sights.
Superb location close to where you want to be. Very easily accessible to all quadrants of the city by car as well as walking distance and a block from public transportation. Its a nice safe area, quiet building. Come over and enjoy Calgary.
You will have access to the whole apartment. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen and a washer and dryer in suite. The balcony is available for you and there is a tv for movies and wireless internet too. If you have questions I am happy to answer them.
Interaction with Guests
I am only a txt message away and I am happy to answer any questions you may have to make you stay as hospitable as possible. I will always welcome you in person if possible. Otherwise I will leave keys for you so you are able to make your way inside and get comfortable immediately.
So many things to love!!
Yes. Your location allows you to walk to many amenities and there are also several bus stops within a couple blocks. The c-train is I would guess an 8 minute walk from the apartment.
Other Things to Note
About the cleaning fee: I was charging $150 across the board, which really adds up for guests with short stays. What I find is fair and what I am implementing, is essentially a fee based on your duration of stay. So, stays of 7 days or less is $60, as listed. Stays of 8-13 days, a fee of $100 and stays 14 days and over will be charged the $150 fee, which allows me to have the apartment in tip top condition for your stay, which is ultimately what you want. Please feel free to acknowledge that you have read and accept (when you inquire) and I will make you a special offer if I can accept your booking.
I ask guests to leave the place in the same neat and tidy condition as they find it which means taking out garbage, uneaten food and recycling and to wash and put away dishes. I also have a no excessive noise policy/no party policy in respect of my neighbours and so I can continue to do what I do and very much enjoy doing! Simple! Enjoy your stay!
Everything was fantastic. Complete and clear instructions to enter the house. Very nice and clean house, full of services (TV, WIFI, Washing and drying machines).
Heather was very nice and very much interested on our stay in the best situation.
It was sad that we could not meet her personally, but we will have a chance in future.
My husband set up for me to stay at Heathers Condo while I was taking a course in Calgary for about a month. Heather's Condo was clean and welcoming, and pretty much had everything I needed to make it home for the time I stayed there. The location was amazing, steps from 14th Street and 17th Ave, which houses everything you would need. It was also a short walk to my school and West Kirby Train Station on 7th Ave SW. The Condo was well furnished, especially the kitchen, which I've found in past AirBNB stays don't always have much cookware to prepare meals. That made staying for an extended period of time more comfortable for me. Although the condo is a bit dated, there are beautiful features, such as hardwood floors, updated modern furniture and a lovely King-sized bed! The age of the TV and appliances weren't an issue, nor a surprise as the listing is true to the pictures and descriptions provided.
Heather is a great, attentive host. She was quick to resolve any issues, and easy to communicate with. She's very accommodating, and it is evident she is invested in her guests having a comfortable stay at her places.
We had one issue, where we had brought our small dog, and she caused a disturbance, upsetting a neighbour. When I was checking out my husband had to bring her down, and Heather was kind enough to accommodate us by setting us up at a different location (Listing: Sweeping Mountain Views) that was more pet friendly. The second condo is a bit smaller, but more modern and updated. It's a sub penthouse on the 25th floor, and we were greeted in the morning by a lovely view of Calgary, and the mountains. If you are looking for a more updated Modern place to stay, check out this listing. The condo was very lovely, and also centrally located. Great for a single person or couple looking to spend some time in Calgary.
Thanks again to Heather, it was a real pleasure staying with you! Thank you for being so accommodating and attentive!
I would not stay there twice. But this is a matter of personal taste.
The location was GREAT. Really good. The apartment was fine. Nothing terrible. However, one reason I like airbnb is because I so much prefer feeling at home in someone's home rather than feeling like I am in a commercial space designed to be rented out.
We were disappointed with several factors. Firstly, the internet is ghastly. Perfectly OK if you only want to knock out a few emails and the odd bit of surfing. If you wish to video conference (as we do because we are on business) or stream movies through apple TV then it's not up to that job. To be fair to Heather, she tried to get a faster service, I think the limitation is one on the building itself.
We weren't too delighted by the request not to lock a certain lock on the front door as it would eventually fall off, nor the TV (shown in one of the pictures to be fair) which is so old that it doesn't have any modern ports for connecting an apple TV (upgrading to a modern tv is hardly expensive these days). Nor were we too delighted with the request not to use the appliances when we are not in because they might flood the apartment. Perhaps a more reliable type of appliance would be a reasonable purchase. And the shower did develop a leak while we were there and the plumbers were called in one day before our departure.
So all told, this was a big step back for me in terms of the great hospitality I have always received previously from airbnb hosts. I love the service, I love the concept and I've been thrilled by the whole experience and hope this is just a blip.
If you are not there for business, Heather has a GREAT location. You can walk to downtown, you have shops really near by but actually my fear had been it would be noisy but it wasn't at all (outside of the building site outside where construction is taking place but even that was much quieter than I would have expected.
Heating was good, bedding was good, apartment is a reasonable size. Price is good. Far from a terrible experience, just less than we were hoping for and have become used to. Your mileage may vary depending on what you are looking for.
Great location, could see my salon from the window! Clean unit, prompt response time. I would recommend this unit to others!
Everything was very good. Heather helps when ever its possible. A very good location and good place in downtown. Everything was clean.
We've just returned back to Scotland from our trip to Calgary. We had a great time there and the apartment was every bit as good as it looked on the brochures. Heather contacted us right away to ensure we were able to get into the apartment even though she was between flights in Vancouver. The location was ideal in that all amenities were within walking distance and a great selection of restaurants were nearby on 17 Ave. Heather was very accommodating by putting in an extra bed in the second bedroom so that my 17 year old son and 14 year old daughter could have there own beds.
I would definitely recommend this apartment and look forward to renting there again on our next visit to Calgary.
