"Everything except excess"
NOTE THAT STARTING SEPTEMBER 3 WE HAVE RENOVATIONS STARTING ON THE 3RD FLOOR SO NOISE AND WORKERS CAN BE EXPECTED DURING DAYTIME HOURS.
Also be advised that we are not operating a “Bed and Breakfast” as defined within the City of Winnipeg By-law No. 200/2006. Each of our guests are considered to be a “Boarder” or “Roomer” as defined by the same By-law.
Be our guest in a private room of this spacious & beautiful century house in one of Canada's most intact pre-1930 residential areas. The house is beautifully renovated and upgraded with all amenities.
It is a quiet, central, & safe neighbourhood adjacent to downtown with many character homes and parks. The city centre is only 2 km away, approximately 5 minutes by car or an easy walk. The bus runs very frequently and stops at the top of the street. We are right off the Trans Canada and parking is free.
Everything in the house can be used while you're here.
Most notably: Wifi, laundry facilities, awesome kitchen, calling throughout North America, 1 bicycle&lock, canoe/lifejackets/paddles, and toboggans/sleds.
**We are a young, married, professional couple.**
We are especially laid-back & welcoming, although often not at home due to work. So it's likely that we won't see much of each other and you might have the place to yourself (self check in is common with our guests). Other times, schedules allow us to pull up a chair, visit awhile and enjoy some good company...
Everything you will need is placed in a logical place & one of us is ALWAYS available by phone/text for any information about the house or city.
Last minute bookings, late night arrivals, and early morning departures are easily accommodated; we can usually respond to an enquiry within minutes.
We have a larger dog (border collie/lab) and you are welcome to bring your dog.

We look forward to welcoming you to this easy home away from home.
Chris and Reesa were extremely accommodating for our late-night arrival. Angel and Xooom were both very sweet dogs as well. The room had everything we needed, it was a bit cold due to construction but the space heater helped greatly.
The house was close to public transit, which we took advantage of to avoid paying for parking downtown. It's $2.55 CAD one way, and the #11 bus route picks up close to the house and conveniently stops along Portage (Downtown) and Main (Exchange District).
We had everything we needed and will certainly find our way back to their place if we find ourselves in Winnipeg in the future. It was like home away from home!
Lisa and kris were awesome hosts! From the moment we got there, we immediately felt at home with their 2 dogs and cute character home. They talked to us about good places to go to in the area and were just all in all good hearted people. If I ever go to Winnipeg again, this will definitely be my place to stay.
This was my first time in a air b&b but it was a great time. Everything was in the house it was clean the host was also a nice person I didn't met the hostess. When you needed something and it was not in the house or you couldn't find it you could ask it. The other people where also friendly. If I needed a place again in Winnipeg I would go again.
Lisa & Krish are what you expect not from an hosting family, but I would say from friends, i.e. being involved in “the bound” of friendship and human relationship. Wonderful people, endowed with the gift of letting their guests to feel at home even 8.000 km far from their hometown. They are warm if you want to get involved, they are respectful when you want your privacy. They provide excellent services (kitchen, internet, information and directions) and transmit a very optimistic attitude to life, which is a most appreciated commodity!
Perfection:) The room and all the other areas were tidy, cosy and well equipped. It felt like home, it was nice that also other rooms were available for use. Reesa and Chris were friendly, helpful and sincere and the dogs were also nice and children-safe. Special thanks for well equipped kitchen, helpful tips from Winnipeg and pasta :) oh, and distance from downtown was perfect, peaceful and beautiful area, walking distance from Winnipeg. Recommended to everyone!
An absolutely lovely stay! Very welcoming and warm, excellent location, and excellent services by the hosts! Highly recommended!
It was sooo nice. Thank you Reesa and Chris, you are a great Host. I enyoed to stay in your beautiful romantik furnishing House.
I feel like Home :) The House is very clean and quiet, you can do what you want. It close to any things you need and not much for to the wpg. Airport. They have a nice Dog, calls Xoom, he is so quiet and a real gentlemann-Dog :) Angel is a girl, who like to be a Momy for my Puppy.
I"ll stay there anytime, i visit Winnipeg. Thank you for all. Have good luck :)
