We enjoyed the house very much. We traveled to Edmonton to see our grand kids and the house suited our needs. They enjoyed riding the bikes, playing in the sandbox and using the swing set. If we to go back to see them, (rather than them traveling to see us) we would certainly rent it again.
We stayed in Bill and Tracey's house while in Edmonton for the wedding of our friends. The location was good for us as it was near our friends' house in St Albert, but if you are planning to spend most of your time in downtown Edmonton, you will certainly need a car, as the public transport is fairly infrequent and expensive. The house itself is spacious, comfortable and well set up. There were great toys for our kids to play with and books for them to read. The only thing we could have done with was a fan for the master bedroom as it got quite hot and was a little uncomfortable for sleeping on some nights. The garden is really beautiful and was full of fruits and vegetables at the time of our visit. Our kids loved playing in the sandbox and there were pools and playgrounds nearby that we also made good use of. Overall, this was a very good first experience with airbnb!
I had a wonderful time in the house. The host is very sweet, they offer free bicycles in the garage and free vegetable and fruit in the garden. They also provided a free red wine on the desk. Although the location is not close to the downtown, the area is nice for taking vacation. The neighbor is nice and friendly.
An excellent place to stay. Near à park where you can jog. Neighbourhood is quiet. We had a very great time. Not so far from Edmonton. We recommend!
The best experience I ever had when I travelled. The host write down everything we need in a book. The house is nice, big and clean. So many things in the kitchen, we even found a rice cooker. And the host welcome us to take any vegetable they planted in the garden. The hosts are artists and there are many modern things in the living room. Definitely will come back next time.

Tracey and I live in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada. We love to travel, and have a beautiful five year old daughter who loves to travel also. We are avid readers, and pursue a healthy living style. Our favorite places are the beaches of Maui and mountains of Sedona, Az. We stayed in this very suite in July of 2012, when it was still under the previous owner's care. When the opportunity to purchase the suite arose, we gladly accepted! Our goal is to make our guests' stay at Kihei Bay Surf an affordable and enjoyable one. We have retained the services of an excellent housekeeper, so you can expect excellent service and cozy, clean accommodations. We love staying at the unit ourselves during the summer months, and want it to be an enjoyable experience for you too! Mahalo!
