We live in the Calgary downtown core, in the active community of Parkdale. We are close to parks, hospitals, cycle paths, walking paths and the TransCanada Highway to Banff National Park... skiing, hiking etc. We would love to have you stay with us.

The space

Our house was built in 1950 and has since been renovated to meet our changing needs. We love the feel of the house and enjoy the way that it seems to welcome those who enter through the front door. There are three bedrooms, one bathroom, a living room, dining room and kitchen. The backyard is beautiful with a large deck, two flower gardens, a fireplace, and a cobblestone sitting area.

Guest access

Guests will be able to access the entire upstairs and backyard area.

Interaction with guests

Both my husband and I are more than willing to help our guests learn about our wonderful city and offer suggestions for where to visit. We also ski, hike, cycle, etc. and would be able to help them plan a trip to the mountains.

Other things to note

We are active people who can offer suggestions regarding recreational activities.

This was an excellent place to stay for its close proximity to the university! Brenda and Jim are very kind and are excellent conversationlists! The pictures are accurate in showing what the room looks like. The room was spacious, with lots of storage and the bed is very comfy. I very much enjoyed my stay and would recommend Brenda's listing for solo travellers :)

I had the most wonderful time with Brenda and Jim. They are such warm and welcoming people, and helpful to the extreme. It was such fun sitting in their kitchen and chatting with them. Their place is beautiful! The room is spacious and cosy, the bed is firm and makes for a perfect sleep. The bathroom is spotless and has everything you need, and you have access to the kitchen and the fridge if desired. The breakfast that comes with the room is scrumptuous - I couldn't get enough of Brenda's home-made granola. Brenda and Jim have a beautiful backyard; I only wish I had had some time to sit there and enjoy it. They even loaned me a great bicycle for a nominal fee. The neighbourhood is quiet and green, steps from the river bike path and the Foothills hospital, and close to the University of Calgary campus. Thanks so much, Jim and Brenda, I can't wait to stay with you again!
