Description

The space

We have enjoyed meeting great people from around the world and are the #1 most popular stay in Saskatoon on AirBnb.

We have 3 different rooms available in our home.
Stay 1 night or 1 year - any length!
We live upstairs and are around 24/7.
We have 3 rooms for rent in our basement.
They are nice, clean and private.

First come first serve - we will always put you in the best/largest room as first choice.
If you need 2 or 3 rooms - please contact me and i will confirm that they are both available for the same dates.
All 3 rooms have comfortable real beds large enough for 2 people.

You will have full access to bathroom, shower, kitchen, washer and dryer. Wireless internet is available as well.
You can request any room you prefer - and it will be available first come first serve.

We are located in a nice safe quiet respected area of Saskatoon.

Located within minutes of all great locations in Saskatoon including within 5 minute walk to 20 restaurants, convenience stores, gas station, church, schools and 4 parks.
Only 10 blocks to main shopping and busy area.
We are a 5 minute drive to downtown and Bessborough Hotel area. Taxi fare from our house to downtown is about $10.00. Available 12 months a year. I believe bus costs $2.50 per ride.
Personal chauffeur - if you need rides anywhere we will drive you around for less than the cost of a taxi to save you money.
We are a quiet married couple with a small non-shedding dog.

If you are not familiar with Saskatoon we would be happy to explain the way around to get anywhere. Write us with any questions.

We invite anyone of any age, culture or religion. We only speak english. We appreciate if you keep volume down and we will do the same. The only thing we request is that you do your smoking outside only. I keep very late hours so if you have to arrive or leave very late that is no problem. I work late nights and get to sleep about 5am. My wife Valerie wakes up early and is usually up by 7am so almost throughout the entire day one of us is around to help.

You can do a search online and find maps of city bus routes and schedules. Bus stop is only 1 block away.

Guest access

We want you to feel at home - so you have access to the entire house

Interaction with guests

If you want to make new friends we are always happy to visit. But if you just need privacy we understand.

The neighborhood

Getting around

Bus stop is just 1 block from our house and connects with the entire city


House Rules

We want you to be comfortable. Please make yourself at home in your room.
Please let us know if you need anything special: lamp, fan, radio, internet password, towels, extra blankets, chair, etc.

All ages and ethnic backgrounds welcome.

No smoking or parties - other than that all should be fine.

We only speak english and a very very tiny bit of French.

We had a fabulous time with Valerie and Terry. We arrived fairly late and they were super accommodating. Valerie even had a homemade snack in our room for us. Beautiful home on a quiet street. Wish we could have spent more time with them. Thanks again for the great time!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hoknes house, they were very welcoming. Valerie is so sweet, she drove us everywhere we needed to go. We played frisbee with Terry and we even played a board game and had supper together. There was a park (Canon Smith) near by, really nice to hang out! We appreciate everything they have done for us. Thank you Valerie and Terry!

The hosts were not home when I arrived ,as well as when I returned later that nite, nor did they reply to my texts. The room was not as shown on site. The house was not tidy or appealing. The two dogs staying in the next room barked repeatedly with any movement I made. I chose to stay elsewhere after the first nite.

We had to cancel the reservation the day before we were due to leave home by plane as I became ill and could not fly. We notified Terry & Valerie immediately and they were gracious in their reply. I would have liked to receive a message about a refund shortly after that, but that did not happen. I was feeling too ill to follow up in the next few days. I would certainly book with them again.

Booked a room for a one night stay, but after seeing where I had to sleep, I left & checked myself into a hotel. Valerie did come across as a nice lady, but the room was in a small cramped dark basement that was shared with 2 grown men that were staying there on a longer term. The walls were thin & I could hear right through them, the washroom is not the same one shown in the ad. It's actually very small & cold. When I sat on the bed it was extremely noisey & obviously very old. Can only imagine having the worst sleep of my life on it. I have no idea why they advertised a "real bed"?? Overall I was not feeling this reservation & did not think it felt like a safe comfortable place for a single female traveler. Sometimes you just need to go with your gut feelings.

Terry and Valerie offered me a room quite at the last minute. It was exactly as described: small, comfortable, quiet. I wish my schedule had provided more time to visit with my hosts; they seem like simply lovely folks.
