Barb was a perfect host, very welcoming, always fast to respond to messages, and she made me feel right at home. Her house is clean and comfortable with every amenity, and the location is unbeatable - on a quiet street but within easy walking distance of restaurants, shopping, downtown, and Prince's Island Park. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Calgary.

Another great stay this time in one of the guest rooms instead of the basement suite. Definitely go for the basement suite if it's available but book early because it goes fast. Bed was comfy in room 1 upstairs.

I live in the inner city community of Sunnyside, and I love it, with all the shops, restaurants, walks surrounded by beautiful gardens, streets lined with large old deciduous and fir trees. I so enjoy the view of the city skyline from my front porch, which changes constantly with…
