About Joy and Vincent

We grew up in Calgary and wouldn't leave it for all the money in the world. We love the culture, the food, and the proximity to the mountains. Hope you feel the same when you come for a visit.

Perfect for celebrating a family wedding!

  • 5 of 5
Our time at Collingwood Retreat was a home away from home for celebrating our son's wedding. The retreat was very clean, comfortable and inviting. We had a comfortable space for grandparents to stay and a well stocked kitchen to host family meals. The location was a quick drive to the airport to pick up family and friends who travelled to Calgary for the wedding. The owners were fantastic! They checked in often via email to ensure we had everything we needed. Our family and friends were very impressed and will certainly look into staying at Collingwood Retreat during their next visit to Calgary.

Very Comfortable and Well Maintained

  • 5 of 5
This is a very comfortable and well maintained property. The hosts were amazing, as we had small children and they provided some child friendly dishes and cutlery, which was a nice touch and the kids loved. There were also toys left for them, which they also enjoyed. The property is great for a family, and has everything one would need for a vacation home away. Thanks so much.

Exceptional "home away from home"

Exceptional "home away from home"
  • 5 of 5
This stylish home had everything we could ask for, and more...!! In addition to being well equipped and centrally located, it was truly a retreat with a relaxing ambience from the moment we walked in. We had more than enough space to accommodate our family of 4, host dinner guests, and relax after putting the kids to bed.

Joy and Vincent went beyond our expectations - they personalized our stay by setting out toys and a high chair for the kids, and checked in to make sure our needs were taken care of. Their home is thoughtfully set-up: well stocked kitchen and spice rack, Tupperware / foil / wrap / ziplocks, lots of plush linens & towels, secure double garage & parking pad, keyless entryways, maps & guidebooks, access to a National Park Pass, great TV & music selection, home phone, washer/dryer, every room has closet & drawer space, the list goes on...!

This oasis offered far more than a hotel, and raises the bar for vacation rental properties.

Clean, comfortable home in lovely neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed staying here during our recent trip to Calgary. My husband and his colleague enjoyed the easy access to the university, and my six year old daughter and I enjoyed the easy access to the parks. The park and ride was easy to get to for downtown exploration. The neighborhood is great.

But most importantly, the house was so comfortable to come home to after busy days. There was plenty of room for us all. The kitchen was decently equipped. The beds were comfortable.

We never got the chance to meet Joy and Vincent, but they checked in regularly, and I'm sure they would have been very helpful if we needed anything.
Renting here from them was a lovely experience.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with this house. It's in a wonderful location in Calgary and very easy to get anywhere in the city. The house looks just like it does in the pictures, super clean and very roomy. It has everything you need for a weekend stay or week stay! We were out there visiting for a wedding and the family members that had come by the house were so impressed that they want to come out there in the future and host Thanksgiving and other holidays here.
Thanks for a wonderful time, it was great, and if we come back to Calgary I'll be sure to check out this house again!
