About David and Holly Nielsen
We are enthusiastic travellers, who have been in this neighborhood for nearly 20 years. We have been in the hospitality business ever since we transformed this home into "Artist's Bed and Breakfast". Since then, we have expanded "The Artist's World" to include two vacation rental apartments in Southern France (HomeAway 979853 and 4274763) and another in Tucson, Arizona. Our goal is to offer high quality family friendly vacation rentals.

Our stay at your home was awesome. Our group of 4 couples had a comfortable place to relax instead of a boring, week long hotel stay. The beds were comfortable and each couple had their own bathroom which was fabulous. We utilized the great kitchen often, and the BBQ. But the best part was the deck in the back yard. What a wonderful space for everyone to gather.
We spent every night sitting out there, under the patio lights you have thoughtfully strung around, which came on each night automatically. Another thoughtful gesture which is one of many in your home.
Thank you again David and Holly for allowing us to stay in your home.
Excellent modern immaculated home at SW Calgary. Everything that you need to enjoy is there.
Thanks Holly and David for your excellent service. Our family came from abroad to participate in my our son's wedding. Every service we need was nearby and when we stay at home, we enjoy a gourmet kitcken. Every area of the house was very well designed, fill in by thoughtful details. Moreover, we found all kind of service needed. for 10 people. The neighbourhood was quiet and the neighbours very helpful.
Highly recommended for any large family/executives

Our family really enjoyed staying in your beautiful home. The beds and bedrooms were very comfortable and having so many bathrooms was a real luxury. We loved the fact that there were two different gathering spaces.....one for talking, puzzle making,etc. and one for watching tv. That worked out great. And we very much enjoyed eating a number of dinners and some breakfast out on the back patio. IT stayed light so late at night that we were able to prepare and eat dinner outside even though we had been out all day sightseeing. The patio was so lovely....a quiet place to read, as well.
The kitchen was well stocked , which we appreciated.
The only thing I would caution visitors is that there are a lot of stairs and so if someone is even slightly disabled, it might be a problem. Also, one needs to drive to almost everywhere although there are some restaurants nearby but it seemed like a difficult walk to get there.
All in all, we would heartily recommend the Artists House. It was comfortable, beautiful, and very welcoming.
A most wonderful side trip we took was to the Royal Tyrell Museum, a world class dinosaur museum.
The Artist's Home in Calgary
Hi David and Holly,
Thank you for sharing your wonderful Calgary Artist's home with my family. It was the perfect place for us all to gather and enjoy the beautiful cool summer evenings. The bedrooms were all very comfortable with luxury linens and fluffy pillows. Bathrooms were so convenient with 3 in-suite bathrooms, this was perfect for our group of 10.
Living spaces were great. Grandkids took over the downstairs living room and fridge. It was the perfect place for them to gather and share games, laughs and stories.
Adults could spread out in the other two upstairs living areas and also the beautiful deck off the back of the house.
Not to mention the close proximity to the train station that takes you downtown.
Thank you David and Holly for sharing your home with the Nichols family. Hope that we can all come back soon."
Extraordinary, architecturally stimulating renovated home
Perfect home for our family gathering. Enjoyed the numerous and beautifully renovated bathrooms, comfortable beds and multiple gathering spaces. Excellent hosts attentive to our every need.
The place was fabulous. Everything that was advertised was there. Very comfortable for all 9 of us!
The property is in the southwest by canyon meadows and McLeod trail. We went to fish creek park to walk and run a few times. My daughters wedding was at the bow river ranche restaurant. So the location was great. Pretty much a 20 minute drive to everywhere else whether it was downtown or other areas. The airport was about 25 minutes via Deerfoot trail. Lots of shopping both grocery or mall in the area. Communication with the owners was easy and thorough. The place was very well organized. Great property. Great experience. Highly recommend!!!!!
Thank you so much Albert!
