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.

A welcome break from hotels!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4-person touring company had the privilege of staying in this gorgeous home twice this past winter. Before we had even arrived, Joy and Vincent were very gracious and sent us friendly emails with clear directions regarding the house. We arrived to a beautiful, clean, spacious home - perfect for our needs.

Both of our stays were around a week in duration, and we enjoyed our time. The furniture was comfortable, the decor modern, the bedrooms were welcoming, the kitchen stocked with all the necessary cookware and appliances, the bathrooms clean with an abundance of towels. Everything was just right.

The location was great, if a little loud at night due to some thru-traffic, but even that was manageable.

Joy and Vincent left us all the information we would need out on the counter, as well as checking in with us via email over the course of our stay.

Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a home away from home while visiting Calgary.

Great home base for family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic choice for our family long weekend stay in Calgary. Plenty of room for our 6 adults and the house is very well equipped.

Our weekend included a Flames game and stops all over the city and we found the location great.

Everything was as advertised and Joy & Vincent kept in contact in case we had needed anything. We hope it's available next time we need a place in Calgary....we will return.

Warm, Cosy, Homely.

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of seven 22-25 year old adults travelling from Sydney, Australia to Calgary for a 3 night stay.

Everything was automated at Joy's and Vincent's property from keyless entry and heating. The house was very spacious for 7 people yet was very warm and cosy. It felt very homely and we had a great time sharing the house with 7 friends. The kitchen was stocked with the appropriate utensils and made cooking at home easy for us. The garage accommodated our large yukon xl with ease.

We travelled to Banff and Lake Louise while we stayed in Calgary and Joy and Vincent organised a complimentary National Park Pass for us and had it delivered to the mailbox in the early hours of the morning. We are grateful for their dedication and hard work as it saved us some money.

Communication was immaculate from Joy and Vincent. We communicated via email and their response time through booking, our stay and after our checkout was very prompt. They made us feel very welcome.

The best thing about this property is the price, the rate Joy and Vincent offer is extremely affordable and cannot be beaten for the type of accommodation and service they provide.

We want to thank Joy and Vincent for having us at their Calgary home, we will be back here the next time we are in Calgary. We highly recommend this accommodation to those wanting to stay in Calgary, Joy and Vincent's service sets the bar and there will be definitely no regrets. 25+ highly touted reviews cant be wrong!

Simply lovely!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here during the week of our daughter's wedding with our extended family. This home was completely updated and had everything you would need, including body lotion! It was very clean, neat and spacious. There was snow on the ground but we never felt cold inside. The owners were very attentive and gave us a phone number for any questions or problems...which we had none. The only suggestions we would make is that the bed pillows be replaced and they add 1 or 2 more kitchen towels. Thank you Joy and Vincent...your home is simply lovely!
