As soon as you walk in it feels like a home - not a holiday rental. The furnishings were more than adequate and there is cushions, throws, vases, pictures - all making it feel homey. The lay out lends itself to family gatherings - with two living areas and a large open plan kitchen with a huge deck just outside. It comfortably slept 7 adults with comfy beds and bedding - it is all very clean. Great washer and dryer. The location was great for us to attend a family wedding in Mackenzie Town and easily accessible from the Deerfoot (Hwy 2) - also very close to the South Health Campus. There is a bus stop just across the road. There are pleasant walks through parkways to the Bow River and a 10 minute walk to Sobey's and Good Earth Cafe. Anthony was very responsive to all my email questions as I was booking from the other side of the world, answering almost before I sent them! I felt it was good value for money and would certainly recommend it and use it again if the need arose. Thanks, Anthony for the use of your lovely house.
The good: The house is very nice, and bewautifully decorated. It was also walking distance to a couple of different parks and that was very handy since we had small children with us. The yard was a nice size and the patio furniture was awesome!! We spent evenings outside barbecuing and hanging out in the sun. Location is also great. Easy access to the Deerfoot, and many different grocery stores and amenities are all a short drive away. Anthony was very kind and allowed us to add days onto our reservation when our plans changed as well. He was very responsive whenever I contacted him.
Now the bad: when we arrived the house was not clean. The floors had not been washed, and the rug in the living room was very stinky and dirty. We had to spend a couple of hours getting things cleaned up and also buying some supplies I felt should have been there for us...eg we had to buy our own hand soap for all the bathrooms. The house is also on a very busy road. It made me a bit nervous walking out with my two toddlers...just a heads up. There were also several thing broken upon our arrival.
Anthony was very appologetic when I brought these issues up to him. He said he had some bad renters before us and that his cleaning lady was a bit older and he didn't have the heart to fire her.
Overall, we made this into our home for two weeks and enjoyed our stay. It was a nice house for a family of 4 and we had a lot of space. My only complaint was in the cleanliness, but if you come prepared to clean a bit when you get here, the place is worth it.
House had a well lit house number viewable in the dark as we arrived very late. Owner had texted instructions on how to get in making it very easy as he was out of town at the time. Located in a quiet residential neighbourhood but close to food and stores. Lots of blankets, pillows and towels but some bathrooms did not have hand soap in the dispensers. Had a cool mid-level living room with TV to hang out in. Backyard patio looked well equip with lots of chairs although we didn't get a chance to use it. We would recommend this property to others.
The property is very well presented and has everything needed for a family during a holiday. We stayed for four days over Christmas 2015 and were warm and very comfortable despite the cold weather. Cooking a Christmas meal for 7 was easy with the facilities provided in the kitchen.
I thoroughly recommend this property to potential renters.
We had a wonderful weekend at Tony's place. The house was perfect for our large group and it has all the little conveniences that are wonderful to have when you're travelling with kids. Our only complaint was the weather, but luckily we had great company and a nice warm house to keep us dry!
minutes away from the world renowned fishing on the bow river also world renowned Spruce Meadows equestrian park,
