Loved Our Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
Great stay. Spacious and nicely decorated with good quality bedding and towels. We had a group of 12 and found it was spacious for all of us. The house was really nice and the location was also very convenient since we were close to several restaurants and to downtown. John (the owner) helped us with everything we needed from grocery shopping to directions. We also loved the river view across the street and hope to try the jogging, biking, and canoeing we saw for next time. The air conditioning was also helpful for the days we ended up staying were over 30 C. We found this house very comfortable, well cleaned, and spacious, and will choose to stay here again!

Disappointed with owners but amazing house

  • 2 of 5
3 Night Stay in Aug/14 - whole house. It was impressive. Negotiated X dollars total (incl. cleaning fee). Booked 6 mo in advance. Gave large bank draft as security deposit.

Pros: Impressive house, Grohe fixtures throughout, good location. Beds nicely made, apparently everything steam cleaned. Fruit provided in the fridge as well as some cereal. This should be enough for most at this price point.

Cons: Big ownership issues - I believe they are in financial struggle. Upon reservation, owners asked for age and occupation of all guests.
1) Owners live downstairs with 2-3 dtrs - never mentioned to me. VRBO ad is misleading by not stating this. I expected to have the whole house. During initial walk through - owner asked if I wanted to buy the house.
2) They built a "sunroom" on their deck 1 month before we arrived, wanted to charge extra 10% total. I informed owners that upgrades/upkeep comes out of profit - NOT existing reservations. Owner claimed it added 400 square feet. In the end - it was not a walled sunroom but just a roof over the existing deck. This was very irritating.
3) Owner wanted to charge me another 7% of total fee to hold a family wedding party. She eventually waived this fee.
4) Reminded 8 times to turn off all lights as utilities are expensive.
5) Air conditioning did not work. Owner had no comment
6) Personal belongings throughout the main floor including weak narcotic grade medication (Tramacet), expired yogurt in the fridge
7) Reminded 4 times not to wear shoes in house
8) During our party, owner said children/adults are not allowed to step on the backyard grass.
9) No iron in any of 5 rooms - we had a wedding. Asked owners - never provided iron. Very weird if they also rent single rooms out.
10) At end of stay, asked for extra 2% cleaning fee for bedsheets. I informed this was not agreed upon, but owner was holding my large bank draft. I paid the 2%, got my bank draft back and instead am writing this review.
11) 8 more cons, but out of text space.

Opinion: Great house(5/5), poor ownership(1/5), poor landlords(2/5). Would not return, would not recommend for the price paid (esp. with the 3 requests for more money). I understand their issues with running a business, but nickel and diming customers won't attract repeat guests. I've waited 2 months to see if I could forgive - and still very disappointed. Cons #1 and #2 are the worst and I've made an official VRBO complaint.

Owner's Response: 1) Our agreement clearly stated that only top and main floor are for rent “basement is occupied and not for use.” (Item# 26).

2) In June 2014, a new 440 sqft room was added to protect the house from flood and heavy snow damage. It connects to the dining room. It was built with 3 walls & wall lights, 3 skylights, music speaker, stamped concrete, Kaiju wood railing & outdoor furniture. It protected the outdoor sitting area from the storm last Sept. This guest approved the extra charges after we sent him 12 pictures after the renovation. He well used it for his party.

3) We forgave this customer on many charges. We agreed on 8 occupants w no partying/gathering. He actually had 12 occupants and a party with 45 people. We gave him deposit back at departure instead of 2 day waiting as agreed.

4) We only reminded him once as all lights were on when he was gone. There are about 200 pot- lights and most were on when not needed.

5 & 6 & 7) One of the air conditioner needed attention. This problem is now fixed. Backache medicine was removed.

8) During his party, some of his guests went to our separate stair leading to the basement, gathered at our entrance and staring at us. We gently reminded his guests that the basement was off limits. He had many children as guests, jumping off and breaking two of the outdoor chairs. We did not charge him for this.

9) There was a steamer iron in master suite, he did not want to use. A regular iron was provided at 9:30 am the next day, but he said he no longer needed it. Later, we find the iron in bedroom number 4. We then added 1 more iron for future guests.

10) This guest asked for damaged deposit at departure, we checked quickly and advised him of a 1 hour cleaning fee due to his party as well as yard cleaning. We also provided extra bed sheets and towels for his extra guests. We refunded his deposit in full after he paid us one hour of cleaning fee.

11) We found this customer unreasonable and disrespectful to our property. He called us late at night for a regular iron when there was a steamer iron. He asked and we helped for extra toiletries supplies when holding his party. Some of our beautiful cups, bowls and dishes went missing (this has never happened to us before). . We provided plenty of assistance plus complimentary beverages, toiletries, breakfast item and he did not even thank us but only cared about getting his money back which we normally refund in full.

Misleading

  • 3 of 5
The listing i looked at was a beautiful clean house in a prime location. When i arrived i found out the the owner lived in the basement still and there was personal belongings around the house in cupboards and bathrooms. The fridge and freezer had food in it which made it hard to store the groceries i had brought for my stay. Another misleading aspect was that the Piano room displayed in the picture was locked up and not accessible. The house claims to sleep 15 but would really only sleep 11 comfortably and that would include a person on the couch. At the end of the weekend i had to pay an extra cleaning fee which i had previously discussed was apart of the charge. The house was not filthy but did have crumbs on the floor and obviously bedding needing to be washed - which i would assume would need to be done after every visitor. All together the house was a very nice place but i would not rent it again.

Lovely experience! Very comfortable, luxurious and spacious in this house!

  • 5 of 5
Staying at this house is a lovely unique experience for us and we have stayed in lots of hotels and vacation homes! The house is located in the central of Calgary,near downtown and with a splendid view of the river. It is managed by a family (mainly John the husband and Kim, the wife). They showed us around, checked in with us throughout our stay just to make sure that we were happy and had everything we needed The house has plenty of John's wood work and painting's that he has made with a lot of beautiful details. The house is well furnished with all necessary stocks, kitchen with best quality appliances, books, games, desks, linens, bedding and towels, etc. We love the layout of the kitchen with a beautiful hand crafted dining table. The fireplaces and bathrooms are very luxury and comforting. We really enjoyed and had a comfort stay at this house! It ‘s a fantastic memorable experience for us!

Nicer than a mini boutique hotel! Great comfort!

  • 5 of 5
This house is furnished beautifully like a luxurious 5 bedroom hotel right in the heart of Calgary. It had everything you would want for a gathering or a ceremony occasion (like a bridal shower, birthday, or even a small wedding). Before Christmas, we had a wedding anniversary for 32 people gathering and also family reunion of my parents and my 5 brothers and sisters and their families (13 of us). When we arrived the house was in perfect condition, and everybody was amazed that I found a place like this for us to re-connect after some 10 years. We made ourselves at home. Not only we all have good time to each other but also we can enjoy some features that would not offer in a standard house. Multi fireplaces, two master bedrooms, high ceilings, beautiful art works, wood words, grand foyer, spacious kitchen, living room, several sitting areas. All bathrooms are granite countertop, European fixtures and quality spa-like tubs. The hardwood floor is so clean and beautiful! They are exactly like the pictures, so beautiful to walk on.
All the bedrooms are cozy, spacious with nice and clean beddings and towels. Both master bedrooms have 3 way fireplaces, walk in closet and luxurious bathrooms. The showers with multi jets and water head in the master bedrooms will make you feel like you are a celebrity (it is a nicest bathroom that you can think of). Kitchen, backyard, front porch – all of these extra features made this house more luxurious, private and spacious!
Overall, this was an excellent rental home for a great price for us to enjoy and to celebrate. Our week went so fast and couldn't have gone more perfect. We all love it and we will come back!

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear that we have been your home away from home when visiting Calgary. Thanks for the great review and we look forward to your return. By the way, you'll see some changes when you return - we are receiving very shortly new bedding package which will give our master bedrooms a new look and make the bed even more comfortable! We expect this to be complete by the middle of February.

GREAT EXPERIENCE! BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Great location! Beautiful facilities and VERY clean! high quality fixtures and fittings! Booked the Luxury King suite and was amazed with the huge size and the luxury of it. The spa bath is gorgeous, more than any 5 stars hotel. Worth every pennies. Area was pretty beautiful just to walk around, a few minutes walk to shopping, restaurants and downtown. Will definitely stay again!
