I very much enjoyed my stay at Christine's home. The house is incredibly charming and warm with a cozy bed that made me fall asleep instantly. Christine is a wonderful person and easy to chit chat with over coffee. I would definitely stay here again, the location is perfect and the neighbourhood is quiet and leafy.
Christine was a fantastic hostess. The room was lovely, well appointed and an excellent place to stay. The house well situated for someone to explore Edmonton, as I did, with easy access to city transportation. Christine was very helpful with lots of suggestions for where to go and how to get there, and lots of fun to get to know (and make sushi with.)
For my first time with airbnb it was a great experience and I hope to have the chance to visit Edmonton again and stay with her. I highly recommend it!
Very nice house located close to the Saville Sports Centre. My son was competing for Team Ontario at the Volleyball Canada National Team Challenge Cup. We won the gold medal. Everything met my expectations. Would definitely book again, if we have more tournaments in Edmonton.
This is the second time I have stayed in Christine's home. As always, it is tasteful, elegant, and perfectly located in Edmonton. Christine is lovely and so helpful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Edmonton!
Always comforting staying with Christine (3rd time). Location is excellent and nice quiet area with lots of on street parking. Will be back again.
I enjoyed staying with Christine and I slept like a rock. The bed is very comfortable and the house very quiet. It's a couple of blocks to 109st, and from there it's easy to catch a bus up to Whyte Avenue. Walking it took more like 15 minutes.
My employee stayed with Christine and she said she was so nice and the place very comfortable. She enjoyed her stay. Christine was easy to communicate with and very accommodating.

About the Host, Christine
I am a creative, curious and laid back woman who loves traveling the world, making art, learning languages, cooking ethnic foods, discovering new music, new books, new ideas and meeting new people.
I have a small painting studio in the house and also work with mosaic.
When I travel which is usually 2 to 3 times a year I really want to see it up close and personal. I want to really get a feeling for the place and that is usually found by hanging out and living with the locals. I just came back from Japan where I stayed as an airbnb guest. Now it is my turn to host.
