A holiday hideaway on the South Saskatchewan river, my cosy basement suite and garden is a retreat in the middle of the city. Close to downtown, Broadway, Prairieland Park, buses -- and the river is steps from your back door. And there will be home baking! Currently taking bookings for one to four months duration. Ideal for students.

Mari-Lou is a gracious host and quite generous with anything she happens to have on hand. A fabulous baker, as others have attested. An even better conversation. The accommodations were much more than I needed. I felt like I had a little house downstairs. I felt safe in regards t…

I had the privilege of staying with Mari-Lou for 2 weeks. I could have stayed soo much longer! She is the perfect host and has become soo much more than to me. She held my hand through the craziest thunderstorm I have ever seen and comforted me with wise words about life. Her coo…

Mari-Lou was a lovely and gracious host. The accommodation was set up as advertised. I enjoyed fresh scones, a lovely garden and lively and enriching conversation. Highly recommended!

Mari-Lou was a wonderful host and I had an excellent stay with her in Saskatoon. She was very welcoming, accommodating, and I really enjoyed chatting with her. Her place was really comfortable and clean, and the location was fantastic. Mari-Lou lent me a bike to get around, which…

Upon arrival, Mari-Lou was immediately welcoming and friendly. She showed me around the place so I felt comfortable right away. Our interesting and cozy basement suite was nice and cool despite the summer heat. We were welcome to sit on her back porch or take fresh greens from he…

We stayed with Mari-Lou for a couple nights in the middle of a cross-country drive from Toronto to the west coast. The cozy suite she has prepared is on a quiet street in the basement of her charming bungalow. But the real reason to visit Mari-Lou is her generosity and graciousne…

Location was great with a nice garden. Easy to find and near the river for nice hiking. The host was very friendly. The accommodations were clean however it was very stuffy in the basement and I couldn't open the bedroom window. The space smelled like mildew and there was si…

Response from Mari-Lou:
I'm sorry you felt the place was stuffy, as the bedroom window can be easily opened. As far as mildew, I'm very conscientious about dampness, and use a de-humidifier when necessary. However, as we are in a drought now, it hasn't been. My previous airbnb guest used incense, and I think that is what you might have noticed, although I did thoroughly clean, air and vacuum the suite with my industrial strength FilterQueen the morning of your arrival. Occasionally the odd critter comes in through the drain but that's pretty common in any household and difficult to control without toxic chemicals. In my four years of hosting you are the only one to make these complaints. Sorry your experience did not match your expectations.
