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.

EXCELLENT FAMILY FRIENDLY RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
This property was absolutely perfect for us. Our group was two couples each with a child. This property allowed us each to have our own space and plenty of it! We stayed at a hotel for our last two days and kept saying how much we wish we had just extended the house rental! It is a home away from home and the owners are amazing. I can't say enough going things about the house. The locations allows for easy access to downtown and shopping at Crossiron Mills and Chinook Centre. A+ We will definitely save this information for our next trip to Calgary. Thank you for making the stay so nice!

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 of 5
This house is beautifully setup with renovations wall to wall! All 4 bedrooms are comfortable, although the two in the basement are cooler than the main floor. The washrooms are nice and everything is clean and very well organized. The kitchen is spacious and we were able to make some meals using the many tools and supplies readily available. The internet worked very well, the televisions and cablevision were great for us to watch some hockey.
Thank you Joy and Vincent, you were great hosts and you will be our first choice the next time we are in Calgary!

MOM'S 80TH AT COLLINGWOOD RETREAT

Mom's 80th at Collingwood Retreat
  • 5 of 5
Our family gathered at Joy and Vincent's beautiful house in Calgary in order to celebrate our Mom's 80th birthday at a central location so that we could spend more time visiting and less time traveling around. We couldn't have asked for a more ideal setting.
The house was easy to find and in a great neighborhood. As each family member arrived we could easily accommodate their wishes and needs - all the services you could want are very nearby. We sat down to big family dinners and brunches with eight of us at the table, my brother cooking up a storm, and we all slept beautifully in comfortable beds with fresh linens. The house was stocked with everything we needed and had it been warmer outside we certainly would have taken advantage of the big deck and fire pit out back.
From the outset, trying to find a place suited to our activities while still in France and not knowing Calgary very well, Joy and Vincent provided all of the information we needed in a timely way, helping with the booking process, making it easy to arrive at the time that suited us with no stress.
My brother and his family will return to Joy and Vincent's for future visits to Calgary, making it a home away from home when in Alberta. It was a memorable experience we would encourage anyone to have.

Owner's Response: Hi Annette and Tom. Thank you for your kind words! We are extremely happy that your mom's birthday celebration went off as planned and with great family and a meal to share. We are happy that our home provided everything you needed and did in fact feel like your home away from home! We look forward to connecting with your brother and family in the future, and would be honored to host your stay again. Just let us know when and/or check the calendar for availability!

Many blessings!
Joy and Vincent.

GORGEOUS HOUSE IN A CONVENIENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic place in a great, central location. Easy access to downtown, U of C and beautiful parks and playgrounds. House was spotless, tastefully decorated and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The hosts went out of their way to ensure our every need was met, including providing toys and other necessities for two toddlers. We highly recommend Collngwood Retreat to anyone travelling to Calgary.

EXCELLENT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this house for a week while some renovations were being done on our home. The house was spotless, located in a very central part of the city, and was equipped with everything you might need to make your stay enjoyable. The interior of the home has been renovated and is bright and lovely. The 4 bedrooms are large, nicely decorated, and the mattresses are great. The owners, Joy and Vincent, are accessible and great to deal with. There were nice touches throughout the house. For example, there were new rubber gloves to wash dishes, there was a first aid kit in the upstairs closet, and we were welcomed with a basket full of treats (which made our kids happy). There is also a fenced-in backyard where our sons could kick a soccer ball around. Our one complaint was that the fridge was rather noisy which, given that two of the bedrooms are in close proximity to the kitchen, woke us up a few times during the night. All in all, however, we were very pleased with the accommodations and would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Hi Suzanne. Thank you for your review and we are so happy to hear you and your family enjoyed the home. We will definitely investigate the fridge noise as it is a relatively new fridge.

Thank you again for your feedback and congratulations on the completion of your renovations!

Joy and Vincent.
