People often comment that this home feels like being in the woods or on the coast and yet we are centrally located in a heritage neighborhood close to downtown, Foothills Hospital, river paths, University of Calgary and SAIT.

The space

This artist's home is full of original paintings, sculpture and plants that contribute to a feeling of peace and comfort. Your space is equipped with several small luxuries that will help you feel like you're on a special holiday. You are also welcome to enjoy the public spaces in my home, both indoor and out.

Guest access

Although there is a comfortable space set aside for your personal use, you can also feel free to relax in the main floor spaces including the garden rooms. The deck dining area is a great place for your morning coffee or evening wine. The fireplace in the living room is a great place to cozy up on a cooler day. Good quality tea and coffee are provided in your private space as well as granola and fruit.
Laundry facilities are available from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, often appreciated is you've been travelling awhile. You can also borrow an iron if needed.

Laundry facilities and a more extensive breakfast or evening meal are available by arrangement, donations for groceries appreciated.

Interaction with guests

I would be most happy to chat with you upon arrival and at other times throughout your stay to help with anything that you might need. As well, free to email questions before or during your stay.... I can connect you with many kinds of resources and would love to help you enjoy our neighborhood and city.
I am also very open to your cues that interactions aren't needed and peace and quiet is high value.

Other things to note

Parking is onstreet but special arrangements can be made for stays longer than a couple of days.

I look forward to you enjoying the space and treating it with the care you would your own home. I have an elderly cat but she is not allowed into your space in case of allergies or preferences. Our home can't accommodate other pets. We also don't smoke in any part of the house although the patio chairs are a comfortable smoking venue with butts going into the metal firepot.

Audrey's place was the perfect place for us. It was cozy and had great character! It also was not too far from the city, yet enough distance for a peaceful and quiet stay. We truly enjoyed our stay and getting to know Audrey. She took us to visit her community garden which was a plus. We highly recommend her place.

Audrey's place is lovely, we ended up spending most of our time out and about but the living room was an incredibly cozy room. It's across a bridge from the downtown core which is nice as it's less busy and quieter. However it's still very close, we were able to drive to Fort Calgary in 15 minutes without issue even with Saturday nigh traffic, but make sure you have (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps, the roads can be very confusing. The room is in a basement which may be important to know but the window actually has a large enough opening an average person could escape in the case of a fire. It was walking distance to a park with playground. Very comfortable bed and bedding. Great visit to Calgary.

Audrey's home was lovely and gave a very comfortable feel. The room was tidy and neat, which was what I wanted. Though the room was simplistic, it was also very well thought out with the decor. I liked how there was a full length mirror, a kitchenette, and a bathroom that was not shared. During this short stay, I felt like I was given the privacy I needed and the freedom to enter and leave the house as I pleased to run errands or explore the city. Moreover, it was convenient going to malls or other places from her house. It was a shame I didn't get to meet Audrey in person but her co-host Anaya was wonderful and easy going! I would recommend staying at Audrey's home!

Audrey's place is wonderful! The room was spacious, clean and we even had our own bathroom. The little garden is beautiful as well. Audrey and her housemate Cynthia were really nice and they even helped us getting a cab to the airport. All in all: great airbnb, we highly recommend! :)
