Kathy was born and raised in Calgary and Doug is almost a Calgarian. We have traveled extensively throughout the world and the U.S. Here we are in China, in Nov 2013. We would be happy to help you with places to visit in and around
Calgary. Let us know your interests and we will provide information on the best places to park, easiest way to get there, or the best way to get around avoiding some traffic. We will include tips on how to save time and money on some of the events you will enjoy and because your time is valuable we will help you save it on what not to do. Just send us a list of what you like to do and we will help in every way possible. Look at map below and you will see we have easy access to all attractions and amenities. Doug has a fatal condition called IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) This has and does not stop him from living life to the full potential to include enjoying his 5 grandchildren and 2 adult children along with their spouses. Doug loves to have people enjoy the home we have raised 2 wonder children ourselves in. Kathy runs a small business from the building beside the garage 2 to 3 days a week so we can take care of the home, yard, and each others needs to include Doug's medication. It has never been a problem with people staying. We do not live at this home as some may think we do. We are not far just a 15 minute drive away. We love people and love to meet the people who stay at our homes if we can. Not always possible as some do not stay long or are out from the time they get up until they go to bed, and we are not there except a few of days a week. Doug loves to tell people about what our fabulous city has to offer and a must to see. If by chance he does not get to meet you, he has left many brochures in the home for you to get to know the city and what is close by just outside for you to take advantage and not miss his favourite places to go. You will occasionally see
Doug putter in the yard unless you are out enjoying it.

We are close to everything with easy access roads. Quiet Location with amenities within walking distance. Views to die for. Parking never an issue. City River walking path across the street.

We at at the property 2-3 days a week and available to answer and help you with any questions that might come up. I run a small business in the back in a private area so please feel free to come in anytime when we are there. We bought this home because of the views. We were willing to pay anything to be on this street and not have the neighbours looking in the windows peering back at us. We can watch the breath taking sunsets from the seats in the front of the home, across the road on a park bench, or just from the front room window. We can take a walk in the morning enjoying the views from both directions walking. One is the amazing city views the other is the stupendous Rockies. The home's layout is a favourite of ours. Not everyone has to be on the same floor, which makes it easy to have a conversation with some family members while others are watching TV and laughing on another floor and Gramps and Grampa have a nap on another floor and Dad is watching TV and napping in the to die for master suite. Just a few steps to each floor so it can be mastered by most people and children. No one feels like they are crowded and in others space. The master suite has a jetted tub for two and the downstairs shower is great for people who need space. We bought this home that needed everything done to it and it took us several years to renovate. Of course knowing what we know now, there is always things we would change, but we still love this home and have no plans of parting with it for a very long time.
If any one needs anything we are always happy to help.
