Bedroom with a double bed.

The space

Our house has a gas fireplace, outdoor firepit and large flat screen TV in the basement. Much of the furniture in the house is unique in that is solid wood and made by the owner. Our basement has a very Canadian feel to the decor.

Guest access

Guests who book the full house will have access to the full house with the exception of the garage. If you book a bedroom you will have access to your room and shared spaces (kitchen, living room, tv room).

Interaction with guests

After having roommates for seven years, Matt and I are used to sharing our space with others. We enjoy meeting new people and are happy to chat / direct you to different things to do in the city.

Other things to note

Our house is located in Bowness. It is very close to Bowness Park and Winsport. It is also in a great location is you are looking for a quick stay before heading to the mountains or want to day trip to the mountains.

It is about a 30 minute drive to the airport and a taxi will cost around $65. To drive to downtown takes 20 minutes when it is not rush hour. At rush hour it can take up to an hour. By bus (#1 or #305) it takes approximately 45 minutes to get downtown.

Their house is amazing! Close to the Olympic center and only 20 minutes from the city. Candace and Matt were awesome as well!

We loved this cozy home away from home. Candace and Matt were fabulous hosts. Matt's craftsmanship throughout the house made it feel like we were staying in a museum. So many outstanding pieces of art! We were grateful to Candice for the yummy apple dessert after a cold day outside. And the bed! It was so comfy and cozy. We loved our stay and hope to come back.

Right from the moment I arrived, I had a great time staying with Candace and Matt. They were extremely warm and welcoming. There was a key waiting for me, everything was clean, and they were happy to both get to know me more and share some of their own stories as well. Thank you so much guys for making me feel right at home!

We did not meet Candace and Matt as when we arrived they were away themselves. Andrea was living at the house and was a great host - so easy-going, easy to chat to about life, travelling etc. and happy to give us ideas on what to see and do. The house itself is lovely and close to a nice walk/park. The room was nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay and felt quite relaxed. Thanks! :)

Although I wasn't a typical guest (booking last minute flights, running around a lot and coming in at odd hours), Candace and Matt were super accommodating. Candace was in contact with me the entire time, and made every effort to make sure I was okay during my stay. The neighbourhood is beautiful, and very close to the river. The room and home itself is exactly as described, although Matt's wood creations are incredible. Overall, fantastic hosts!

Candace was at home to greet us when we arrived and showed us to our room. The chocolates on the bed was a nice touch. We had a chance to chat after we got back from dinner and it was nice. Have fun on your 3 month adventure! Candace also laid out a bunch of stuff for breakfast in the morning but we were eager to hit the road so we didn't have any but it was very thoughtful and such a nice thing to do. Thank you!

Candace And Matt User Profile

Matt and I have been married for eight years. We love to travel and spend time outdoors. In the past few years, we've been to Ethiopia, Peru, Brazil, Egypt, Nicaragua, Panama and Costa Rica.

We are an easy going couple with no kids; however, have a siberian husky puppy. Over the past 7 years we have had several roommates. Although they have all moved out now, we've made some awesome friends in the process. I work in the sustainable development field and Matt spends his time building houses, furniture and doing geologic safety planning.
