About This Listing
Located in the oldest and most beautiful neighborhood in Saskatoon -- a two minute walk to the riverbank and Broadway, 15 min walk to USask and TCU Place. Come stay in this large bedroom with attached bath, having all the amenities of a hotel suite.
We've designed and newly renovated our basement guest suite for comfort and privacy.
It is furnished with a brand new full-sized pillowtop mattress and bedding. We've fitted the suite with those touches to make you comfortable on your stay -- reading lamp and alarm clock by the bedside, tea/coffee station, a few books, and a couple houseplants. The room also has a study nook with a desk to sit and access the internet or write a letter, decorated with colourful local artwork.
We keep the bathroom immaculately clean, and it is for use only by our guests. Bathroom includes the basics and a little more -- fresh towels and soap, shampoo, bodywash, and a hair-dryer.
There is ample space in the closet to hang your tuxedo or ballgown! There is also an iron and ironing board.
Guests have access to the full basement suite, including: a sitting area with couch, mini-fridge, and coffee/tea station; the large bedroom with study nook; and the dedicated bathroom.
We do not include use of our kitchen or upstairs living spaces. If guests wish to do laundry, it can easily be arranged with the hosts.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy meeting our guests -- it's nice to get to know those who are sharing our home. That being said, we know that you have your own plans and activities... and so do we!
We live on a quiet block of a beautiful, tree-lined street in the Nutana area. This is the ideal location in Saskatoon. Just a very short walk to the riverbank with a gorgeous picture-postcard view of the Bessborough Hotel, right across the river. Great access to summer festivals and the shops, cafes, and boutiques on Broadway. We are also a short walk (about 15 minutes) to downtown across the Broadway bridge, and about the same distance to the University.
Street parking available; during summer festival season we have an extra parking pass for your use if desired. Broadway, University, and Downtown are all a short walking distance away, as are the biking and walking paths along the river.
The best way to reach our house from the airport is to take a taxi. It is about 15 minutes/ approx~$20.
No pets, no smoking, no guests other than those booked in the suite. Please take off your outside shoes near the front door.
Excellent location! Quiet neighborhood close to trendy Broadway and downtown. This basement bedroom with bathroom with sitting area had everything we needed for a weekend stay. The room was very clean and quiet and the bed comfortable. We were very pleased with our first airbnb experience and we thank Meera for inviting us into her home. We will definitely be back!
The room is clean, cosy and neat. I enjoyed my stay. Thanks Meera.
Meera is a very nice host, provided me info on where to find the local stores I want. quiet and beautiful neighbourhood. amazing newly reno place. good privacy. I felt like I was in an hotel room with all the things that i need. very close to broadway and many local stores and cafe. very accommodating check in time.
I stayed in Meera's suite for a 3 day weekend as I was in town to attend a course. There was 2 of us in the suite, which was very clean and comfortable. Our first impression was that it was a bit small for the two of us, but actually it worked out well! There was plenty of room and it was very quiet which helped us unwind and concentrate on our evening book work. Meera and her husband were great hosts leaving little extras in the suite to give it a hotel feel!
This is the second time Meera has hosted me, and my stay was once again wonderful!! Her family was very warm and welcoming, making me feel right at home.
The space is quiet, cozy, and spotless. The set up is nice, with access to your own seating area and mini fridge. The bed is very comfortable. You can tell the space has been well thought out and attended to. It is in an excellent location, a few minutes away from Broadway, and only a 15 minute walk to the university. There is an excellent coffee shop down the street that makes some of the best soup in town! If I am ever in Saskatoon again, I will definitely stay here!
