Arinna is from Canada, and does ecological landscaping. Giles is from England and does personal training and transformation!
We met in Mexico in 2008, and have been on an amazing adventure ever since!
Rather basic house and room but comfortable all the same. Good wi-fi in very quiet house. Friendly, chatty host.
The reservation was canceled 13 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It was my first visit to Edmonton and my first time using Airbnb, Arinna and Giles made me feel very welcome. They know Edmonton well and
that resulted in hearing good music and good food.
I will get in touch with Arinna and Airbnb the next time I'm in Edmonton!
Roby (Arinna's father) was a friendly and creative host.
He did his best to welcome us after a few difficulties to contact him for the check in. An other guest was sleeping in the room the night before so the bed was not ready, but Roby washed the linen fastly so we can make the bed, and we had our privacy quickly.
He offered us an alternative room if we wanted a bed right now, and an extra blanket cause the room was not heated.
The location is great, with all you need (restaurant, shop, bakery, bar) in walking distance.
The room is rustic and simple. Good wifi, beautiful piano (Roby likes to play music time by time).
Roby offered us free bike during our stay, and even proposed to share dinner with us. We were his first airbnb guest, and we noticed that we really did his best to make us feel like home.
I spend almost three weeks with Arinna and Giles and after that time it almost felt like a second home. The two were just great as hosts and adjusted to my needs.
The nearest bus stop is only two minutes away and all the busses take you to the next LRT station (or you could just walk there in about 15 minutes time). You will find the larger supermarkets along this LRT line or you can just try the little store close by. Plus Edmonton has lots to offer (also after Labour Day). I would love to come again one day!
Arinna and Giles are friendly and kind hosts. They were very helpful for my first days in Edmonton. Of course, I can recommend to stay there.
Arinna was incredibly helpful, responsive, and welcoming. I felt less like a houseguest here, and more like a friend and roommate. It was also a really convenient location for bike commuting to UofA and downtown. This house is especially good for anyone into sustainable living - Arinna is doing some pretty amazing things with this house, and her permaculture garden is just beautiful.
Arinna and Giles were amazing hosts! There home is well located with public transit available right outside the door. The LRT is a 15 min walk or you can catch the bus to the station. The accommodation was rustic and cozy. My hosts were very welcoming and we shared travel/food stories over some great wine!
Simple but comfortable place, hosts are easygoing and very friendly. Hope to be back here soon.
Arrina and Giles were great hosts. Accomadations were basic but clean and comfy, felt like i was hangin out at a friends place .

Arinna was a lovely guest, and I really enjoyed her company. Wish she had stayed for longer - come back soon Arinna!
Enjoyed meeting Arina and Giles. They are interesting to chat with and are caring people with good values and a positive 'vibe'. We really liked them.
Arinna and Giles are very friendly, nice people. I'd be very happy to host them again, it was great to get to know them a little.
Giles, Arinna's husband, was a wonderful guest. While neat and tidy in appearance and manner, he is also extremely respectful of his surroundings and posesses an upbeat, easygoing pesonality. It was genuinely easy to host such a pleasant person. I would welcome him back as a guest at any time.
A pleasure to meet and host. Immediately friendly and respectful, clean and tidy. Totally trustworthy.
Arinna & Giles have been perfect guests - great company, entertaining, happy & generous. It's been an absolute pleasure having them stay with us & we would be delighted if they chose to stay with us again! :-)
