Like I said, this is a sweet, desirable location!

We welcome you very much to Calgary!

Children are welcome and must be supervised by you.

Sorry, no pets or unregistered guests visiting or staying.

We purify the air with a Bionaire and the windows are openable to the sweet park air. We're very fussy about how clean your bed will be for your arrival, so no worries there!

Please ask about anything else you'd like to know!

Please ask if you need anything at all. We have a portable humidifier, air purifier, iron, mini fridge, microwave, and more on request for your room(s). Also, let us know if you run out of anything like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, towels, or would like to try a different pillow. We want you to be comfortable during your stay!

Or, we can do your laundry for a fee and return it the same (one or two loads) if you arrange it by 10 am.

AIRPORT transportation:
Airport to here info
1. Taking a taxi is easy and fast and costs about $50-60.2. You could also take the Calgary transit route 300 bus directly from the airport to downtown. Ask someone at the airport where to catch it. It doesn't take much longer than driving and has very few stops. We always get off at the Calgary Tower. The 300 bus costs $9.50 per person and you can catch a cab easily from Calgary Tower (9 ave & Centre St) to our place and the cab would be about $10. Depending on your energy and how much luggage you have, you could even walk to our place from there south up 1 Street SW (1 block west of the busstop) and it would take you about 30 minutes. Do you have gps?
3. Or, if we're available, (may not know until the day before) we can come get you from the airport for $50 as long as you keep us updated about whether the flight is landing on time.

WE SHARE OUR LARGE HOME WITH YOU.
Our family of three people and two cats live in this big house. There are two bedrooms available for your use, and you can make yourselves at home in the common areas. We have one additional bedroom that you can book for additional people, if necessary (Elbow Park, Spacious, Close to DT).

Each bedroom has a comfortable bed with fresh bedding and everything to make you comfortable. You can enjoy a Hudson's Bay woolen blanket, mini fridge, ironing board, and more on request.

We have one single firm stowaway bed. Please inform us at the time of booking if you need the stowaway bed. We welcome you very much to Calgary!

The big bathroom next to the guest room is used only by guests, except for the washer and dryer, which is available to both guests and residents. (Residents have our own bathrooms.)

We aim to give you a five star experience, so please let us know if we can improve your stay somehow.

We arrived around 11:30pm and Kate messaged me how to enter her house very early. We booked two rooms on the second room, its very clean, warm and comfortable. And it's great location, only 10mins drive to the Calgary downtown. Kate likes to share her experience, and she always tried to make us feel home. And there are two cats at the house, we were warm welcome by them. I will recommend this to all my friends who want to go to Calgary. 我们是当天夜里11点半才到达她的家,但是kate非常热情,一直在给我发短信,告诉我们怎么进来,不用担心打扰到她休息。 我们是一行五个人,定了二楼的两个房间,房间很温馨,干净,整洁,布置得有艺术范。 kate家里有两只猫,也很热情友好。 kate本人也非常健谈,乐于分享她的经历,是个有意思的人。 非常推荐这家家庭旅馆!

Kate was not available to greet us, but left a great note with all the information necessary - we felt welcomed. Kate and Hans were both friendly and available to provide information and made us feel completely at home. We used the kitchen (great space!) a couple of times and also hung out in the TV room and watched a movie. It was just like staying with relatives. They were around, but the house is large enough that we seemed to cross paths only occasionally. When I texted Kate with requests for information, she responded immediately. We walked to the 4th St. and 17th Ave. area a few times and enjoyed some nice restaurants and shops.
