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.
David and Holly Nielsen purchased this House in 1998

Our stay at the Artist House was wonderful. Everything was as seen in the photos but more beautiful in person. The location and neighbourhood were great, especially the lovely neighbours. Only two hiccups, upon arrival our code didn’t work and I could not reach David because of the time difference but the neighbour helped us figure it out. The outlets in the bathrooms were on working which made drying our hair difficult but the electrician did come towards the end of our stay. Either way this would not deter me from recommending The Artist House to others and I would for sure book with David and Holly in the future!
Our stay in Calgary
Your home was beyond our expectations in every aspect. We were a group of 10 traveling to Calgary for our daughters wedding which included three small children. The children played in the fenced back yard and out front because the house is on a cul du sac so there is significantly less traffic. There was nothing we needed especially in the kitchen...we cooked a lot of our meals and there was ample dishes and cookware. Location was great. Close to any amenities you may need. The house is very tastefully decorated and the paintings are beautiful. Wonderful stay. Would recommend it to anyone.

Every aspect from start to finish could not have been better. The communication with the owners was top notch, the easiest check in as well. The house itself is stunning- a real gem. Comfortable beds and linen, modern facilities, beautifully laid out for a group to have their own space. The artwork is stunning!! A really comfortable place.
A special mention for the communication during our stay, and responsiveness. It was colder than anticipated at that time of year, which meant we needed the heater turned on. We sent an email and within minutes it was remotely turned on. Very impressive!
Location is convenient for the train and major roads. Highly recommend!!
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.
Thanks so much, we love having guests like you! We hope you will consider us again next time you are in the region.
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.
