This house is perfect for business travellers and working holiday (URL HIDDEN) transportation, right outside the front door, is great for downtown, University of Alberta, Grant MacEwan University/College, and NAIT, and Southgate Mall. There is a full kitchen with equipment you would need to cook. Just bring your own food.
It's an easy walk to Whyte Avenue, to the UofA, and shopping or restaurants and entertainment.
There are several rooms in the house, most are rented to Master's and PhD students. There's actually 3 bathrooms in the house, the basement being the best, as it has only one user!
A quiet place with a homey feeling.
Please remove your outdoor footwear. There are flip flops and sandals at the front door if you need them.
The main floor is all common space: dining room, kitchen and dinette area, and a living room with a flat screen TV, cable, and WiFi. On the second floor, there's 4 bedrooms, a shared bathroom (separate toilet room), and a laundry room. On the third floor, there are 2 bedrooms with a shared bathroom for them.
If you like to take a nap, please do so in your own room so others don't feel restricted.
One last little detail: Please don't use hair dyes or other products that can stain floors, walls and rugs in the bathroom. All tenants will appreciate this.
Interaction with guests
We do live in our own home further away from this house. We are quickly available by phone, email and text, and are very flexible.
Other things to note
Quiet in the house is the main theme. We all appreciate chatting, but we do like to have quiet specially after 11:00 pm. So do laundry, watch a little TV, on-line chat with family, but only before 11:00 pm!
There is a land line available for local phone calls. Please use a Calling Card to make any long distance calls.
Retired educator. We always look to learn new things and meet new people who are open minded and of good character.
We love to travel and like to walk, discovering as we go. We specially like to be in places where we are closer to the local people, not just the superficial touristy things and places. We have a son who lives permanently in Japan where we've travelled many times. We've gone to China, Korea, Singapore, and Thailand to meet him. I've worked with teachers in Cameroon, Togo, and Niger, living with them as I worked. We work with masters and PhD students in our rooming houses...usually from other countries.
