Banff Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy this comfortable suite which can accommodate up to four people. Located only three blocks away from Banff Avenue, it is a very convenient base from which to start exploring the Banff town site and surrounding points of interest. We are located only 1 1/2 block from a ski shuttle bus pick-up location.

You can expect the company of Summit, our friendly new dog. She is a young girl always eager to welcome everyone. She is not allowed in the suite, however she likes to hang out in the yard.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days in August 2016, for our 30th wedding anniversary. Josee was a gracious host and had many great recommendations for restaurants and trails. The suite was perfect for us - nice kitchen, comfortable bed, comfortable living area for reading, nice back yard for sipping wine and gazing at the mountains. Being three blocks off Banff Ave., we had easy walking access to downtown activities and trails without having to re-park the car, and our evenings at the suite were quiet and romantic. Josee also had a friendly dog who we enjoyed. The couch could easily be turned into a bed, so families with young kids could have a great stay here too. Whenever we go back to Banff, we will absolutely try to book Josee's suite again!

Central, quiet and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with Josee so much! We could easily walk to the main streets within minutes, with shops and restaurants being closeby. We had a lovely bbq in the backyard the one afternoon. Other days we went snowboarding and exploring and was great coming to a homely accommodation to rest after a long day out. 100% recommend staying here when in Banff.

Owner's Response: It was great meeting you as well and hope to see you again once you have settled in Calgary! I should mention however that my suite is not pet-friendly due to potential allergy concerns with guests. Summit, my friendly dog, is not allowed at all in the suite for that reason. She sure enjoyed your company and attention while hanging out in the yard though! Best Regards, Josee

Le vrai confort à 2 minutes du centre de Banff

  • 4 of 5

Cet appartement est très, très bien situé en plein cœur du village, tout est distance de marche. Très tranquille, il est situé dans une rue résidentielle. Très propre et bien équipé, l'appartement donne sur une jolie cour arrière et est très privé. Cet appartement est pour les gens qui aiment le vrai confort sans luxe tapageur. La propriétaire prend soin des lieux et des locataires avec beaucoup d'attention. Nous recommandons cet endroit sans aucune restriction.

Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for the two of us. We loved the fact that we could use this as a base to visit all the tourist places and hike the Lake Louise region. Josee was very helpful guiding us to all the right trails, We would recommend this place. Availability and comfort are the key.

Nice quaint little place

  • 4 of 5

Great location, quaint little place, although the bedroom was a little small, the whole place was good enough for the 3 of us. Well equipped, although we did miss a washing machine. Nice, gracious host, they were living on the floor above, and hence we were almost tip toeing around the place so as to not disturb them.

A slightly older kind of a bungalow, hence we spent a fair amount of time squeezing out the water on the walls after our bath, using every little item with extra care, on instructions by the owner..Overall, a nice experience.. Banff itself was so beautiful that given a chance ,will visit again
