Please turn off lights when leaving, don't do laundry late at night and ask if you are not sure about anything.
I live upstairs so communication is easy.
Downstairs is toasty warm in winter and cool in summer. There is laundry for your use on the same daylight basement level.
Roger fut très accueillant et sympatique. Logement était propre et très bien équipé. Plusieurs éléments de convenance était compris ( savon, shampoing, papier hygiénique, pain, lait , etc ). Le secteur est homogène et résidentielle . L'aspect extérieur de la cours arrière aurait avantage à être amélioré.
The place is clean and kitchen was fully stocked (what a surprise!!). It was my first time using AirBnB and Roger sure made me feel like home! Awesome guy, will be staying at his place again when I'm in calgary!
We were a party of 5 adults, including two over age 70, and we really enjoyed our stay at Roger's flat. It was comfortable and had all the amenities we expected. We were worried about the stairs, as it was a basement flat, but these were perfectly manageable for my elderly parents. It was also a very sunny basement! The C-train University station is about 10 minutes' walk and local supermarket complex about 15 minutes' walk. We had a wonderful lunch at the Kilkenny pub at the complex, which we would recommend. Roger was a wonderful and generous host, who went beyond the call of duty. He drove us to the mountains (Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise) and gave us a personal tour. He introduced us to the Grizzly Paws pub in Canmore, which was great for food, and we tasted some great beers. When we left, the taxi we had called for was too small to accommodate all of us and our luggage, and Roger took the rest of us to the airport as well, so that we would not miss our flight. I would recommend Roger's place highly, and thank you Roger, from the bottom of our hearts, for making our Calgary holiday such a memorable experience!
It was very nice to stay in this apartment. Rodger is more than friendly. He even bought groceries for us. He also gives us advices where to go to. It is a lovely place to stay and we enjoyed it very much. Perfect for persons who want to visit the Olympic Oval. It is only a 10 minutes walk.
About the Host, Roger
I am retired now and love to travel and meet new friends.
Although I have been to many different countries I still feel blessed to call Calgary home. There is such freedom here, and the mountains are just an hour away.
Calgary is such a clean vibrant city with endless opportunities for work and pleasure.
Nature is at our doorstep both in the city and just outside, and it is free for all to enjoy.
In summer one can float through downtown on the Bow river, a world class trout stream, or be in the foothills of the Rockies in 45 minutes. In winter there is a ski hill 10 minutes from my door, and I can cross country ski a block away.
Having said that, I plan on spending more of the winter months in warmer countries.
Airbnb Mexico, here I come.
A couple of blocks away, Canmore Park has picnic facilities, a childrens wading pool, tennis courts, bike paths, walking trails, natural areas and borders on Confederation Park Golf Course.Calgary AB
