Situated in elegant Charleswood, this studio suite is close to the University of Calgary, Foothills Hospital, Children's Hospital and Brentwood shopping mall. It is a clean, quiet, self-contained, private suite in the lower portion of an owner occupied home.

It is fully furnished, tastefully decorated, warm and welcoming, and it is in a great central location for all of Calgary. It has a private entrance with off street parking and comes with a single car garage.

The space

Approx 500 sg ft, it is a quiet, soft space, insulated from the rest of the house and finished with very nice bare cork flooring. It has minimal cooking facilities but does have a Keurig coffee machine, mini fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and a small toaster oven. It is the same quality of a higher end hotel room but is much larger and much more comfortable.

Guest access

The suite has it's own code lock and is completely self-contained. It has it's own private entrance and access is through the attached, single car, south facing garage off Crocus Street. Feel free to park on the driveway leading up to the single car garage.

Minimal - will certainly be available by phone, text, and email.

Very unpleasant, noisy, very cold, no way to cook or to wash my clothes, paying for unnecessary amenities that should be already there for the price we payed over our stay. His horrendous attitude towards us, we couldn't even park our vehicle on the driveway we payed for. I wouldn't recommend this at all.

Response from Colin:
Perhaps if Monica had read the actual description of the suite her expectations may have been different. It does not advertise laundry services and clearly describes the cooking facilities as “minimal”. I am unclear as to what “paying for unnecessary amenities” refers to. The driveway issue was due to her complete lack of response over her guest’s car leaking huge amounts of oil on the new cement. As there is ample, free, on-street parking adjacent to this suite, this did not represent any hardship for Monica. I believe this negative review is attempted retaliation for my having to lay a claim against her with the AirBnb Resolution Center. This was in order to retrieve articles that were removed from the suite on her departure, and her refusal to respond to requests to return them. I stand by my 15 previous very positive reviews and urge any prospective guest to read the complete description of the suite in order to avoid any disappointment or misunderstandings.

This Airbnb basement suite was/is awesome, parking outside and in a very quiet neighbour hood. Within easy driving distance to downtown and all the local amenities. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Colin, But the communication through out the stay was outstanding. Clean suite, cosy bed and a great shower.

We had a great stay at Colin's place! Very clean and cozy, close to the city and close to the highway to Banff. Communications with Colin were very straightforward. I can totally recommend this place!
