This is my first time staying at a place through Airbnb. I could not be more happy that I did. Christy is so welcoming and had flowers and some food staples and tea, coffee and milk all ready for our arrival with a note. She immediately made us feel welcome and offered to help us with any questions we had. As I have just moved to the area she was a wealth of information and helped me to find my new home! The space is like having your own apartment and is so spacious and comfortable. It looks just like the pictures only it is bigger than it looks. My dog and I loved the area around the home...it has an amazing off leash dog park right next door and a huge park that just keeps going just a block away. Gas, grocery stores and banks just a couple minutes away and an easy short drive to get into downtown Calgary. This was the perfect place for my mother, dog and I to stay and we are so grateful to Christy for her home and all her help and making us feel so welcome. Thank you!
We spent nearly a month here with Christy when we moved to Calgary. It was a great transition while we were looking for a permanent home. The basement suite is in a great neighbourhood and is quite spacious and a comfortable living space. Christy was very accommodating, friendly and helpful and overall a great host! We would definitely recommend this place for a quick stay or a longer stay like we did!
Christy is a very kind, warm and welcoming person. The place itself is warm, cozy and comfortable. This place is located near many great places to eat (Eclair De Lune, Jimmy's A&A, Safeway), all amenities and major roadways while being tucked away in a quiet neighborhood with free parking. Some extra pluses was the pet friendliness of the place as well as the WiFi being excellent.
Cozy, quiet and comfortable... What else can be asked for to get a goes nights rest before an early morning flight?
Christy has been a fantastic host. We stayed with her twice. The place is in a great location and she's so helpful. I will definitely be staying again! Thanks so much for everything!
Christy has a wonderful basement accommodation in a lovely neighborhood. There is plenty of privacy and easy access. She was very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed and would certainly return if we are in Calgary again. It was absolutely everything that one could want in an airBnB rental.
Christy is kind and friendly. House is big and I can have a private space because there is 2 entrances. House is neat and warm enough. It also has a kitchen in basement so it is very useful. If I go to Calgary again, I am gonna go Christy's house again.
About the Host, Christy
I am to be the ultimate host for Airbnb- not obtrusive, but available, helpful and friendly. I am a warm and compassionate person by nature, and will do my absolute best to ensure you have a lovely stay in my hometown of Calgary. As a rare native Calgarian, I can provide advice on the best things to see, fast routes to avoid congestion and traffic, and if I know something about you it is that much more helpful! I love people, getting to know new people from around the world, and I continually expand my travel destination wish list. I am happy to share my home and provide a safe, clean, and quiet living space. I truly hope that you love both your stay in Calgary, and the city itself!
