Description

The space

This infill has a front deck and a backyard to enjoy in the warmer months. The main floor has hardwood throughout, and the top floor bedrooms are carpeted. The majority of furniture is custom made in Canada by local independent merchants, using all Canadian materials where possible. The art displayed is a mix of photography, graffiti and paintings.

The neighbourhood

Kensington is an interesting and vibrant community nestled along the Bow River, just north of downtown. It's a fantastic walking neighborhood offering a variety of restaurants, cafes, wine bars, retail shopping, an independent movie theatre and spin | yoga | fitness studios.

Kensington is known for its emphasis on beautifying spaces with flags, seasonal flowers, professional graffiti and art installations. During the winter months Kensington Road sparkles with trees wrapped by strings of lights.

The nearby Peace Bridge and Poppy Plaza are interesting architectural features of Calgary. They're worth the pleasant ten minute walk with coffee in-hand to check out.

Next to Kensington is Sunnyside's ContainR - a village of shipping containers, designated as the city's first art park. Its purpose is to connect the community through art and creativity, hosting a variety of events including live music, dance performances, theatre installations and visual art displays. Additionally, the space has an apiary, a permaculture garden and urban farming. Vendome Cafe is conveniently next door if you're hungry or want a hot latte.

If organic foods are your thing, there are several options close by. Wild & Raw is a family owned business offering fresh-pressed juices, smoothies, hot elixirs and tasty treats. Sunnyside Natural Market is an appealing grocery store committed to supporting local organic farmers, ranchers and producers. Or drop by the Hillhurst Sunnyside Farmer's Market on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of the month (3-7pm) for products from local small family farms.

For wine and cheese pairings, look to Kensington Road's Peasant for their fine selection of cheese, bread, crackers, preserves, and charcuterie. For wine, the knowledgeable staff at the Kensington Wine Market provide ease in choosing the perfect bottle.

Getting around

Taxis to/from the airport cost about $50 including tip. There are four bus routes passing this location and two nearby c-train stations. The river pathways and bridges provide quick access to downtown. Memorial Drive to 16th Avenue is an easy escape to the Rocky Mountains.

Jennifer did a wonderful job preparing our rental. She made it feel very Christmasy and welcome for us - lots of lovely touches which made our stay festive and comfortable. The kitchen was well set up for cooking and bedrooms et al. Super comfortable!

A fantastic property and fantastic host. Attached garage, visitor parking, full cable and high speed internet, fully stocked kitchen, great linens and sheets, easy transit and summer walking distance to downtown...we cannot say enough good things about this property. Also, the host is even more exceptional: Jennifer really goes the extra mile. For example, some hosts will turn down professionals when they travel with their families as they don't want young children staying in their property. Jennifer took the time to fully babyproof her place from putting certain items in storage to going out and purchasing ties and mats to make the kitchen safe. She not only made us feel welcome but really put the safety of our entire family first. Extremely impressive. Absolutely recommend and would stay again.

This was my second stay an Jennifer's home. The second experience was as wonderful as the first, so I'll repeat the review I wrote for the first visit. ----------------------------------- Jennifer's home is a perfect place to stay and experience Calgary. The neighborhood is peaceful, well-groomed, residential. Yet, only a 10 minute walk to the heart of downtown. The entire home is luxuriously decorated with comfortable furniture and fascinating art. The beds are super comfortable, and Jennifer stocked the bedrooms with bottled water and stacks of towels. I especially enjoyed the outdoor patio to sit and read in the morning. Overall, I would describe her home as luxury lodging. A stretch of modern restaurants and lounges is 3 blocks away on Kensington Road, and we found delicious brunch spots every morning. Dairy Lane was my favorite. Jennifer was responsive when we had questions, and she sent us great lists of recommendations for attractions, restaurants, and night life. When I return to Calgary, I will definitely try to stay here again.

Great home, great location, and a very accommodating host. I especially love the art in Jennifer's home. I use AirBnB a lot for business travel, and this is one of the best properties I've stayed in.

I'm an outdoor enthusiast spending a lot of time in the mountains snowboarding, hiking, biking, trail running, river surfing and rock climbing. My urban life consists of art, yoga, spin, theatre, ballet, concerts and events. Calgary is my home base, though much of my career has provided the opportunity to travel around the world and live for periods of time outside of Canada.
