The Space

*Please make sure you have filled out your AirBnb profile completely before requesting a booking, we have shared details about ourselves, and would like to know who you are, too. Thanks.*

Fully furnished, bright, basement suite located inner city, and close to everything.
We are a half hour walk to downtown, and all the river pathways, or a 10 minute bus ride. The grocery store is one block away, and there are many restaurants in the area that we would love to recommend. There is parking for one car on the street. We are also located in the Car2Go home zone.

The suite has one bedroom, one bathroom, and a separate living/kitchen area that has everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. Linens, shampoo, and basic spices are all here for you. There is a small tv with basic cable and a selection of dvd's and books, as well as wifi. The bedroom has a double bed, and the futon in the living room can convert to another double bed. Although it is in the basement, there are large above ground windows that make it nice and bright.
In the summer, you are welcome to enjoy our back yard with a BBQ and small deck. Laundry can be arranged if you would like to use it.
We are located on a quiet street in the neighbourhood of Tuxedo Park. We are a 20 minute drive from the airport, and right off of the main highway that will take you straight to the mountains. There is also an airport express bus that will drop you off 3 blocks from our place if you do not have a car.

Along with 2 traditional supermarkets in walking distance, we also have 2 Italian supermarkets, and an Asian supermarket to walk to as well. Starbucks and Tim Horton's are both walkable. We love coffee shops, and would love to recommend some local ones if that's what you're into.
It's very easy to get to the Stampede grounds from our place (you can even walk if you're the walking type it takes about 45mins) It's just one bus downtown, and you can transfer to the LRT train, 2 stops and you're there. The LRT will take you to a lot of places in town. If you are doing a day downtown, it's free in the city's core.

We are a quiet couple, with one friendly dog, looking forward to sharing our city with travelers from all over. We love to stay in self catering apartments when we go away, prompting us to list ours. Though my spoken french is rusty, I can understand it, if that helps at all. We will do our best to make sure you have a wonderful stay in our home.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We have stayed at quite a few 'suites' through Airbnb and Teslins basement suite has got to be the best so far! We stayed for two nights whilst visiting the city to see the Stampede ( which was great fun) and found the location to be a really good neighbourhood and about 30 minute walk or a 10 minute bus ride into downtown Calgary.
    The suite itself is bright and colourful, really clean and it is has a really comfy bed ( a must) with a great kitchen. Unfortunately we didn't meet Teslins Husband but whenever we had questions and queries, Teslin was really friendly and very helpful (especially saving the day when I had a problem with printing tickets for the stampede). If we were to come back to Calgary I would stay here in a heart beat.

  • Teslin and Peter's apartment was exactly as described, Teslin was a wonderful host who was very accommodating and hospitable. She was quick to respond to any messages and all her instructions were very clear making check in nice and easy. The apartment is a short bus ride or a moderate walk from downtown. The suite is well equipped and very comfortable. Overall we couldn't complain!

  • This was my second time staying with Teslin and I couldn't be more thankful that I found the place. As a student living away from family and loved ones, loneliness is always a unnerving factor to deal with. At Teslin's, I always felt comfortable and safe and those lonely nerves dissipated quite quickly. The house was in a perfect location. Close to downtown and majority of necessities were not a far walk away. I would give Teslin a 10 star rating and would recommend her basement suite to anyone who, along with the joy of travelling, loves the comfort of a home away from home :)

  • Teslin & Peter offer a wonderful home away from home for anyone visiting Calgary. They are fabulous hosts and offer a warm welcome to their guests, make themselves available to answer questions, and know the City well, so are a good go-to for tips on dining, shopping, etc. The location is perfect (close to downtown, buses, and Trans Canada for those wanting to visit Banff or points east). As for the suite, it's cozy, very clean, exceptionally comfortable and excellent value. The hosts have thought of everything; guests will want for nothing. We had a lovely stay and will definitely recommend Teslin & Peter to anyone traveling to Calgary. Thank you! (For privacy, please don't include our surname or location. Thank you.)

  • My bf and I stayed at Teslin & Peter's for the 2nd time, and it was just as great as the first time! Very easy to communicate with Teslin, and I noticed they even fixed/replaced items that needed adjustments. Thank you again for your hospitality! I'll definitely be staying again in the near future. :)

We are a young couple, both born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. We love to travel, and decided to list our space on Airbnb after having such a great experience booking our honeymoon accommodations through the site. We truly love where we live, and are excited to share it with others. We are a quiet couple, with one medium size, friendly dog. Some of our favorite things to do are spending mornings at one of our favorite coffee shops, walking our dog while fantasizing about building our dream home, and planning our next travel adventure. We are both very hands on and enjoy a good project. When we travel, we really like to get a feel for "the real" place, and rarely do touristy things. One of our favorite things to do, while traveling, is visit the supermarket. We also love just wandering the streets of new places and discovering things that way. That being said, we would also love to be able to recommend some great things to do and see in our own city, there are so many! Our favorite travel destination, so far, has been Greece.
