About Joy and Vincent - Collingwood Retreat

We grew up in Calgary and wouldn't leave it for all the money in the world. We love the culture, the food, and the proximity to the mountains. Hope you feel the same when you come for a visit.

Excellent Vacation Properrty!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Canada vacation because of the beautiful Calgary/Banff area and the wonderful accomodations provided by the owners. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms completely satisfied all of our needs. Meal preparations were a breeze and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking and serving needs. We recommend this property for others vacationing in the area. You will not be disappointed! Gary L.

Collingwood Retreat is truly a quiet retreat in the city

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you could need, is centrally located, and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We spent five nights there, and greatly enjoyed sitting on the deck in the sunshine while the kids played in the backyard. It was a short drive to the many local attractions we visited - the zoo, Heritage Park, Riley Park outdoor pool, Marda Loop, etc. There is a fun splash park just down the street and Nose Hill is a few minutes up the street. We walked to Nose Hill a few times as there are wonderful views of the city from the top.

We went to dinner in the Kensington area (fun shops and restaurants), cooked at the house (there is a bbq at the house), and ordered in food as well. We ordered dinner one night from a wonderful pizza place, Avatara Pizza, which is not far away. It has fantastic gluten free pizza!.

The owners, Joy and Vincent, were prompt and friendly throughout the booking and rental process. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to spend some time in Calgary!

Owner's Response: Hi Leslie. Thank you for posting a review! Sounds like everything, including the nearby pizza, worked well for you and your family. The splash park does work out well for the kids! :) Hopefully we will hear from again in the future. Best wishes!

Great Place for A Family!

  • 5 of 5

We found this rental to be very clean and roomy with comfortable beds in a good location. We had grandparents to grandkids stay at this rental together and had more than enough room. We loved having another "hangout" area downstairs- perfect for kids or those who want to have their own space. The area of the rental was very close and quick drive to places we visited- Calgary Stampede and Heritage Museum. A playground was a quick walk away, again perfect for our young children. We were very happy with this rental and Joy and Vincent were great owners to rent from! Thanks!

very happy

  • 5 of 5

The house is well equipped and maintained. We had everything what we needed. It is suitable even for extended stays. It can easily sleep 8 people. What we really appreciated was that there were essentials one needs: detergents, soaps and kitchen stuff (salt, spices, oil, etc.).

It is very well located: transit and shops are not far. However, this is Calgary, we recommend car. We stayed during the Calgary stampede week. It was easy to get to the Stampede grounds. During the rush hour it took us only 35 minutes.

Joy and Vincent organized everything very well. There were no issues and they provided us with all the information we needed.

We will definitely consider the place for our next stay. Thank you very much.

Great House and Location

  • 5 of 5

Very close to the Airport, stores and downtown. Large clean house in quiet area with 4 bedrooms and all amenities. Nice deck on the back to sit as well as a front porch. Easy to get to the roads to Banff and Jasper. Hosts are great and very friendly and cooperative with information and quick response to questions.

Would certainly rebook on our next visit
