Doug Vass purchased this house in 2004
This property offers a home like none other. It is very friendly for children and quiet and relaxing for adults. It is central to everything in Calgary and offers quick access to the mountains. All amenities are nearby.
This house has so many unique benefits including a gorgeous view of the city, a huge back yard that never seems to end because of the ravine behind, and best of all is the warm and cozy feeling inside the house that is perfect for entertaining.
We found the house to be all that it was advertised to be. Very clean and well furnished. It is in a nice quiet neighborhood.It fits a large group well. We would definitely consider it again if we were going to Calgary with a large group.
We had a family vacation that consisted of 8 adults and 5 kids (from 4 months to 8 years old) so the best part about this property was getting everyone under one roof. Grocery stores were a quick drive away for supplies, Shagannapi Trail was a nice larger road that could get you places quickly. In a pinch hearty chinese food is only a 2 min drive (there was a nice little cafe and a couple gas stations in that same spot). The neighbourhood was quiet and it was easy to go for a stroll and feel very safe.
The house itself had an incredible master bedroom washroom! If you aren't lucky enough to be the guests staying there at least give the shower a try. The rest of the house was well equipped and was comfortable enough. Oddly the linen closest on the second floor didn't have a handle but once you get into there you can spread the joys of extra linens and towels to the whole gang!
The house being in a great location and mature neighbourhood did mean the house was a bit older but it was a good value for the number of rooms and size of house.
The backyard was nice and large to do laps with my toddler and the trampoline was great for the older boys to burn off some energy. The hot tub was good but just be careful with your timing or you might be eaten by mosquitos (that's mostly a welcome to Alberta though, no fault of the property).
A couple notes for future guests is ensure you bring your own shampoo and conditioner along with a hair dryer.
The home phone didn't seem to work (no dial tone) but we had cell phones so it wasn't a concern.
Thanks Doug for your quick responses on the questions we had and letting us stay at your great property.
This house was perfect for our group of students and chaperones. Thanks Doug! There was plenty of space and comfortable beds. The students enjoyed the hot tub, trampoline, and games in the basement. I would recommend this home to any group staying in Calgary - so much better than staying in hotel rooms!
We did enjoy having stayed in this lovely home from June 1 to 7. It is a gorgeous home for a large number of people.It is also located in a nice neighborhood and not too far from Banff National Park. The property is well maintained and clean. I will not hesitate to recommend this property to people planning to
visit Calgary, in particular, the Banff National Park.
An excellent property! Doug replied quickly to all inquiries and the house had everything we needed. Lots of room for all of us to spread out. We were 4 families with 4 little ones and there were games, toys, a trampoline and hot tub - something for everyone. Location is easily accessible from all over Calgary with amazing views of downtown from the backyard. We loved the deck and the grill and sitting outside enjoying the views. We would easily go back!
The house worked out exceptionally well for our family reunion. With multiple generations of family gathered together, there was plenty of room for everyone and always a quiet spot for those who wanted to slip away from the noise. Happily, the weather worked in our favor, which meant that the kids were kept busy playing in the back yard. The location is excellent. Access to major roads is trivial, and Calgary is a very easy city to navigate making trips out simple and quick. It is a large house and would be overkill for a small group, but for a larger group it was ideal. An added bonus: not only was there a decently equipped kitchen with all the tools needed and the basics for spices, but there was a full can of coffee provided!
Next family gathering in Calgary, I know where we are staying; no question.
