Kind Owner, Convenient Location, Calgary Condo

  • 5 of 5

On arrival, you are personally met by Vince for an inviting tour of the condo and the condo complex,. You immediately know from Vince's relaxed, warm welcome that you have made the right choice! The condo is perfect for a couple and sits in a convenient location. Restaurants, grocery store, drug store,, retail are all within walking distance. All the amenities you need are included in this condo...including many items such as soap, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry soap etc. that are not included in other condo rentals. The place is immaculate thanks to Vince's wife. There was nothing we lacked or wished for during our stay. Vince even invited us to use his Netflix account which was a surprise treat! We highly recommend this condo owner and rental.

Very nice, good location, clean, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Great small condo, good location for downtown and 17ave. Easy access to off street secure parking. Nice little touches including coffee, tea, snacks. Very clean and well looked after. No access to exercise area or similar which is a bit odd for modern core condo, but that is a building issue not the hosts.

A perfect Place to Stay in Calgary

  • 5 of 5

We rented this well appointed property for a week's stay in Calgary. This apartment is kept pristine and has everything you need when travelling. The owners have thought of everything.

This is a perfect location, with an easy walk to either downtown or the Bow River pathways.

The bed is so comfortable that we slept soundly every night. That's important.

Vince, our host, was attentive, efficient and amicable.

Should we be returning to Calgary, this is the rental we will try to secure.

Excellent condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend staying at this condo. It is obvious the owners take pride in their second-home as it is spotless and well maintained. The unit is quiet and has everything you would need (the pictures are exactly as it looks). The underground parking spot is a must in this location although if you have a large vehicle, you may find the stall a bit tight. Vince was accommodating with check in and provided us with all the details we would need to make our stay comfortable. Thank you!

Fantastic View!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks at the condo, and thoroughly enjoyed the lovely view from the 16th floor. We had beautiful sunrises and sunsets that illuminated the sky, looking both south and west towards the mountains, which were quite visible on clear days. Vince was an excellent host, quite accommodating and responsive to special requests, such as additional glass storage/microwave dishes that we needed for food preparation. We were able to both eat out at some of the restaurants easily accessible on 17th Avenue, as well as eat in at the condo, since full cooking equipment was available. We appreciated that a great deal. The condo is in an excellent location, just off 17th Avenue shops and restaurants on the "Red Mile". Additionally, the bed was quite comfortable and the condo nicely furnished with a very comfortable couch as well. Thanks so much, Vince.
