About this listing
Everybody loves staying at Casa Verde! Our central location is hard to beat, since we are close to downtown, SAIT, the University, and the highway out to Banff. Daughter Jasmyn (11) is the official "manager" but Dad helps out too! Check us out!
Hi everyone! Please have a complete airbnb profile and picture before making a booking request. Thank you, and welcome in advance to Calgary!
*** About Casa Verde (our house) ***
Close to everything! Stampede, University of Calgary, SAIT, Kensington pubs, cafes, and shops, and downtown. Also next to a huge park with a small lake, kids' playground, and biking trails. Probably one of the best locations in the city -- quiet and peaceful, yet close to everything.
Your "manager" is 10 year old Jasmyn, who earns money by looking after guests and keeping the house comfortable and tidy. So airbnb is her little "business". Of course, Dad helps out too.
Your hosts are world travellers who speak English, French, Spanish, and American Sign Language. We really enjoy meeting cool travellers from all over, for short or long stays. Our house is simple, clean, well-located, comfortable, and full of oddball art projects.
We've had guests from 14 countries and counting! We're in an ideal spot if you are visiting Calgary for SAIT, U of C, English language schools, or to go skiing or hiking in the Rockies. We're just over one hour from Banff; around two hours to Lake Louise (by car).
We're also great as a "landing base" if you are new to the city. We can guide you through everything you need to know if you're making Calgary your new home, in English or French or even Sign Language! (Spanish might be a bit harder but we're working on it!).
Our guests are welcome to share the kitchen, the backyard firepit, the musical instruments all over the house, and the art wall. We invite you to make yourselves at home and explore Calgary at your pace.
Check us out if you (email hidden) and we look forward to meeting you!
