About Randy Kozak

This is a family owned vacation property. We have lived in Alberta our whole lives. We have travelled around the world and have seen many sights. Every time we come back to Canmore we feel blessed to have such close access to one of the most beautiful, scenic places on earth.

Randy Kozak purchased this condo in 2012

Why Randy Kozak chose Alberta

Our family lives approximately 3 1/2 hours from Canmore. Over the years, we have spent a lot of time hiking, fishing, skiing, and golfing here. Due to this, we finally decided to take the next step and purchase our own little piece of paradise. Due to the amount of time we've spent in this region, we can provide many helpful suggestions to our guests so they can make the most of their visit to this region.

What makes this condo unique

We love the amenities that The Lodges provides. After an active day outdoors, we return to have showers and fire up the bbq to grill some great Alberta beef. We then like to go for a swim in the outdoor heated pool or just lounge in one of the three hot tubs. In the summer, we then sit on our large patio and converse while drinking a glass of wine all the while enjoying the view. In the winter, we pop some popcorn, turn on the tv, choose a dvd from our library, and watch it while sitting by the fire. For those that can't stay awake long enough to watch the movie, our bedrooms are on the opposite end of the unit so they can retire for the night and those choosing to stay for the movie don't have to worry about turning down the sound. During ski season, the underground parking is a bonus as we don't have to spend time warming up our car and brushing snow. This is a vacation property for our family far above being an investment property. Our guests can be assured that we have furnished this place to how we expect in our own homes. We are certain that our guests will feel at home the minute they put down their suitcases.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the great place. We had a wonderful time. When we come this way again we hope we can stay at your place and will recommend it to anyone traveling to the Banff area. Spent a fun Canada Day in town, swam in the Quarry and watched the parade and fireworks.

Comfortable, clean, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo. The unit was very clean when we arrived and the kitchen well equipped, with some staples in the fridge and cupboards. It is a short walk downtown, to the grocery stores or to the French bakery, where we picked up fresh croissants for breakfast. Having two bathrooms made it very convenient for our stays with our grandsons and with my 90-year-old mother. The park pass is a plus and the good weather we enjoyed for our earlier visit in June and this one in September allowed us to take advantage of the outdoor pool and hot tub. Randy responded very quickly to our messages and returned our security deposit in record time. We have rented quite a number of VRBO condos and this is one of the best.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a few nights in September and it was just great! You can see how much thought and effort went into every detail.

The en-suite bathrooms were a very nice touch and the patio was wonderful and private. Randy was very nice and reliable. There was a park pass available and the underground parking was great.

Excellent condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo rental for our family. The condo is clean, well furnished including washer/dryer, a great DVD collection, and deck. The facility has a nice pool and hot tub as well as underground parking in the building. Very convenient to downtown Canmore (walkable) and nearby parks. Randy was responsive and great to work with providing a park pass, detailed info., and a discount coupon to an excellent local restaurant. Highly recommended.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for two couples exploring the area. Spacious, clean, well-equiped. Having a washer/dryer in the unit and a Park Pass were bonuses. The owner Randy was helpful and easy to work with. Parking was easy and secure.

Happy!

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent 2 weeks traveling with another couple and stayed at 3 VRBO's - this was our favorite - just perfect - I was ready to move in:) Very well equipped and we easily ate all of our breakfasts and dinners there. Easy access to the parks - Yoho, Kootenay, Banff, Kananaskis. Canmore itself is delightful and we enjoyed hiking along the rivers and up to Grazzi Lakes. Easy communication. Highly recommend. So many details have been taken care of - even hiking poles.
