About Steve Balay

We like to travel a bit ourselves and like to stay in suites where we are self sufficient but have the option of feeling like we are in a hotel. Like to go grocery shopping, pick up what we like and have the option of going to the fridge to get what we want and not have to go out or order in. Thought that would be a great idea for others coming to stay in this great city. Born and raised here. There is always something to do in edmonton, from the year round festivals to regular sites to go and see and shopping rivalling the most major destinations in north america. If that interests you check out some of these sites.

Steve Balay purchased this condo in 2013

Why Steve Balay chose North Central Edmonton

Location and again because it is a one bedroom suite, fully equipped, so close to everything and secure, heated underground parking. Two elevators, no waiting.

What makes this condo unique

Great views, very relaxing. Close to everything, forgot to mention, Galagher Park, Edmonton Ski club ski hill just moments away. So much more. Travel tours to Jasper also available. Many attraction and amenities brochures are in the suite for your consideration.

Visiting grand kids was excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 9 days in Edmonton visiting grandchildren. We had stayed at Steve's place before and wanted to stay again because it was great last fall. When Steve heard we would have small kids hanging around there, he very kindly suggested another rental property he owned, also in the city center. We took him up on the offer and were glad we did. The apartment was bigger, had a beautiful west facing, large balcony with BBQ, an indoor pool, and all for the same price. It was excellent. There was enough room in the apartment for us all to visit, and the long hallway leading to the elevator was lots of fun for little ones learning to walk. All the neighbours we met in our ups and downs on the elevator were super friendly and really nice which was a bonus. The apartment had everything we needed, and Steve provided a playpen and child seat (which was a hit and doubled as a learning toy). Steve was very accommodating and looked after us very well. We accidently left a cell phone behind and he promptly put it in the mail to us the next day, awesome. Thanks Steve for your hospitality, hopefully we can stay at one of your places again soon.

Worked Out Perfectly

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days in Edmonton visiting kids and grandchildren. We knew we wanted a place where we could stay that was separate from our kids place and where we could have the grandchildren visit. This apartment couldn't have worked out better. Location was great, near to downtown, Rogers Place and the Commonwealth Stadium and Community Pool. The place was clean and tidy and had everything we needed to make meals, enjoy happy hour (the balcony seating was perfect for that) and watch the sunset. The entertainment set up was super, TV, DVD, sound system. If you're looking for a place to stay that is close to downtown, Rogers Place, Stadium and that is cozy and well set up for living comfortably, then you can't go wrong with this property. The owner was great. He was there if we needed anything but stayed out of our hair and let us feel as though the place was ours. We had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend this property.

Great location - walk to downtown events and restaurants!

  • 4 of 5

Great little apartment. My husband and I were very comfortable here and loved having a full-service, clean unit to stay in. Kitchen is very well stocked and owners left us little treats to make us feel welcome. Comfy beds and furniture. Views of downtown are fantastic.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation in Edmonton. Steve was easy to deal with and came to show us where to park (underground was a bonus) and pointed out some things to us in the rental. Check in and out was smooth and easy. The property is exactly as pictured in the photos and was clean when we arrived. The views were spectacular both during the day and at night. We had access to a car, otherwise might have found the walk to town a bit long. I would recommend this rental.

Overall nice property, cozy & comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This property is in a great location, owner was good to deal with and everything we needed was there. Underground parking was definitely a plus. Some unwelcome guest in between lobby doors when we were trying to leave, however completely out of owners control. I would use this property again!

Had a wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

We have family in Edmonton but prefer to have our own space. This apartment was perfect for us. It was well equipped with everything we needed. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and the view is even better. Although we never met Steve, he was very responsive to any concerns or questions we had. The only drawback for us was getting our suitcases, coolers etc... up to the main floor elevator from the car. There is no direct access from the underground parking to the elevator. Both this location and the front entrance involve using a flight of stairs. Not a huge issue for us, but it might be for more elderly people. Overall our stay was very pleasant and we would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Glad your stay was great! Sorry I must have forgot to mention that there is direct access to the elevator from the underground parking. It is just as you pull in, there is a door that leads directly to the elevator, that is where guests stop to drop their luggage and take it up to the suite, also how we moved furniture etc. in. Will have to remember that for your next stay and we will for future guests.

Great location, just minutes to so much and across the street from the river valley and walking and biking trails. On the edge of downtown, with amazing views. So many must see and must do activities so close by.
