I stayed here in a party of 3 adults and 3 children, while in Calgary for 10 days. We were all very impressed by the high quality of the accommodation. Everything was exceptionally clean and comfortable, and the house is lovely.
The owners were exceptionally helpful. They answered our various questions pre-booking. They knew we were arriving after a long international flight, and were happy to wait for us until we first arrived. The house was very well stocked with everything we might need - down to newly bought family games (unfortunately we never had a chance to play them!). They had helpfully printed out informaiton on nearby shops and facilities, and were happy for us to call at any time with any questions. And yet they left us to ourselves during our stay: perfect combination! Additionally our deposit was promptly refunded, even before we had arrived back in New Zealand.
The house location was useful to get to Crowfoot, with a bus stop just 300m from the property (excellent, frequent connecting service with the LRT). Indeed when one of us failed to get off at the right stop, the bus driver actually drove his bus back to 'our stop'! We were in Calgary to find out about living there permanently, so needed to travel all over the city. Although the house is out in the northwest, we didn't find its location particularly inconvenient.
There is a nice green space in the valley not far from the building, with great recreation trails for running, and fields for playing frisbee!
I couldn't recommend this more highly. A great experience and introduction to Calgary and Calgarians.
