Hi, thanks for checking out my listing, and I look forward to meeting you!
This home is always kept clean and tidy, I enjoy the company of having guests stay with me through Airbnb. I do not often entertain or have visitors at my house, otherwise my social scene is out and about in this great city. :)

However, the I believe in quiet times of course, and expects mutual respect in regards to noise and volume. The Upstairs is treated as more of a quiet area, when people are winding down their days, or sleeping. Sleep times are respected. Normal courtesy around all that is great.

Interaction with guests is a great part of hosting a house, and its a many flavoured experience! I enjoy having many types of guests. The best are the most friendliest and courteous of course. ;)) Some are more quiet, and keep to themselves, as their rooms are well equipped if they desire to do so, Others, are more social and interactive, some become friends. I have had long term guests as well who after staying for a month, decided to stay on and on, longest was 2 years. Some are less chatty, and some are more. I am open to all types of experiences, and welcome people into my home. I encourage them to live here, as they would in their own home. Some like to Cook Together, and share stories and conversation, some are working all day and night it seems, and eat out mostly. Depends on the guest really. I prefer someone with good friendly conversation, and who does not hesitate to talk to me about any of their needs during stay.
Communication of any concerns is best between 9am and 9pm. I find. Some people who are busy, and not around at all, send texts or Emails late at night, or early morning. These will be answered at the first possible convenience, within a reasonable amount of time.
Previous Guests; reviews below: Both Phil's were fantastic guys, and one stayed with me for a month or more and both became friends, we did many things together, hikes and such, as they mention and keep in touch, although they are world travellers. :) There is a review from another guest on my other room listing also, Tonette, and she was a lovely lady, we cooked together a few nights in a row. She was here to see clients around the Calgary area.
I have had many other guests stay also, yet many have not left a review, or their time ran out to do so. Some stayed on longer for several months. The longest was 2 years.
Mostly, guests tend to keep to themselves, and go about their daily routines and adventures.
Once accepting and arriving, you get a package of amenities and services within a 5 km radius of the house. with Maps and lists of businesses that I spent several hours compelling one week. The Kitchen is also stocked with many brochures and travel information, as well as City and area information.
There are a few requests that we have for guests, to make their stay more enjoyable, and to keep the household harmony, and for the best over all experience for everyone. :)
Please be respectful to Owners belongings and property. Come to enjoy. :)
If there is anything you need upon arrival, that is not listed in my extensive online lists, please ask and it will be quickly taken care of. :) Don't be afraid to knock on a door and ask if its needed or urgent.
Normal expectations of your stay apply:
Please keep the shared bathrooms and kitchen tidy and clean after use.
The house has two bathrooms for your convenience. :)
We request to please put toilet seat down before flushing, to assure that the plume of the flush does not coat the bathroom when flushing, believe it or not, it can reach up to 7 feet. I know! I was surprised too when I found out. :)) It changed my bathroom habits as well. :)) As you can imagine, there are toothbrushes, handles, towels and such out. :) Its a good healthy practice that we have adopted.
Please use the Downstairs bathroom only, during times of sleep, as the upstairs bathroom plumbing is against the main bedroom wall and the sink and toilet can be loud in a quite house upstairs in the sleeping area. Feel free to use the shower at normal times, it is not noisy like the other two. :) Its not crazy loud or anything, ;) but can waken a sleeper, as the house is quite quiet, which is great! No road noises, no sirens, no bars or clubs. Just trees, birds, and happy people. :))
Please keep the kitchen clean and kept immediately after use.
No Smoking. If I do agree to renting to a smoker, or you have a smoking guest at some point, they must smoke only at end of front pathway at sidewalk or back lane, so no smoke wafts back into the house, and fully exhaled all smoke before entering the house please and thank you. :) All Butts must be disposed of properly and not simply tossed about, neighbours don't appreciate that of course.
Please be friendly and courteous, this is a private home.
Please ask to use any of the extra house amenities, such as TV, Stereo, etc.
General courtesy and friendly atmosphere are encouraged. :)
If communicating via email and text during your stay, please make it between 8:30 am and 10pm. Any texts or messages sent in the night between these times will most likely be answered the following day, at the first possible time. The owner is available for anything during these day hours. Feel free to talk in person in the house of course! Always available if I'm up and about. :)) I love to help, give directions, suggestions on places to see, things to do, where to eat etc. etc. etc. :)
There are no other House Rules after Arrival. Perhaps a request once in a while, as I am open to requests as well. :))
