This was our first airbnb experience and it was absolutely amazing! It far exceeded our expectations! This home was very clean and extremely spacious. Our family of 5 was very comfortable. Simon and Maria are very nice people and their son Lewis is adorable! We were greeted by them upon our arrival with clear and concise instructions. They were very welcoming and only wanted to assist in making this family trip very memorable. They provided us with great advice on nearby attractions and even let us know one night hat a hike we wanted to take in Canmore the next day could not be taken due to a trail closure. The location is very good if you want to go west to the mountains. When we arrived we discovered they had left us some peanut butter, bread, fruit and cereal. How generous! They were not intrusive at all but communicated with us as necessary to make our trip enjoyable. These hosts are amazing people and a great family. If you are looking for a great family friendly place to stay, this is it. I can't say enough good things about this airbnb and these hosts. We would highly recommend

Simon and Marija's place was just great: big, comfortable, elegant, well equipped. Plenty of small details (a basket of fruits, the great food for breakfast, recommendation of a great walk in Calgary) made us feel really welcome. Simon and Marija are kindhearted and outgoing hosts, so much so that our sons (who did not understand the conversation in English) thought we were visiting friends! Definitely a GREAT place to stay in Calgary

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! This was our first time using Air B&B and we are very happy to say that it was a fantastic experience! We were scrolling through so many different options, but this place caught our attention specifically because of all the great reviews! (All of which are very accurate!) Simon & Marija are such kind and friendly people. The place is amazing and they have truly thought of everything you might need. The location is quiet and beautiful. We loved everything about it! Thank you Simon & Marija!

Simon & Marija User ProfileSimon & Marija is a superhost.

Hello! We are Simon (British) and Marija (Canadian). We both lived and met in Manchester UK, but recently moved back to Marija's hometown of Calgary with our hilarious 3 year old, Lewis.

We both caught the wanderlust bug in our early 20's and we've never shaken it. We love travelling (now as a trio!), meeting new folks, and exchanging stories from around the world!

We are very excited to finally have a space to share with others. What an amazing opportunity to welcome fellow travellers into our home and share our city!

When we aren't travelling we love being outdoors and exploring all that is on our doorstep so we have plenty of recommendations of things to do and see should you want some help planning your adventures!

We hope to make your stay with us one to remember!
