Interaction with guests
We will be present during our guests stay, upstairs, and are available if you have any questions, concerns, etc ! We are respectful of your space and ask the same of our guests, but are pleasant and love people, so I'm sure we'll see you around :)
Our home is conveniently located - backing onto the pathway system, a green space and a park for the kids.
It is an easy walk to Dalhousie Station (15 mins or so). The c-train and the bus station are located by a shopping center (over 35 retailers), which includes restaurants, Chapters, Safeway, a walk-in doctors office, and a gas station.
We are close to main road systems to get you around or even out of the city ! Quick access to Stoney Trail, to Hwy 1, to Crowchild, and less than a 30 min drive to the airport). Banff is about an hour and a half drive from our house (but if you don't have time to head out that way, there is a mountain view from the end of our driveway!).
The c-train and bus station is a short walk (15 mins or so), we back onto a walking/bike path, and there are bus stops just down the road.

No smoking in the house
We have two young children and appreciate that guests are respectful of their noise levels in the evening hours.
My husband, Lee, and I own our home and share it with our two children. We recently started up our own business building and hand painting signs on reclaimed wood and are busy not only being parents but entrepreneurs.
Our family loves to go out for sushi, we love camping, and we love our friends and family dearly.
