I have now stayed at this home twice and the owners other location twice and it is so wonderful! It is a true home away from home, and I would highly recommend it! The owners provide your with everything and are lovely to communicate with, and am so happy to be staying at this home again for four nights next week!

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!
