Welcome to our Basecamp! We live in Bowness; a wonderful community to explore Calgary from and an easy drive out of the city for mountain escapes. We are close to downtown, U of C, the hospitals, and a convenient 20 mins from the airport. We have lovely restaurants, coffee shops, parks along the bow river, and all the amenities to make your stay comfortable. Our home feels like a cozy cottage, so wherever your adventures take you, you'll have a comfortable place to return to

The space
Our house may be small, but our home is cozy and comfortable! We have a well stocked kitchen as we both cook and bake often. Please feel free to use our appliances, and if you need some extra spices or oils feel free to dabble (just please replace the item if you use it all). We have a comfortable living room and kitchen / dining room for relaxing in and socializing in. If the weather is nice feel free to soak in the sunshine on our front porch surrounded by garden, or in our shaded backyard. We have a large back patio and BBQ that you are welcome to use. Bowness has plenty of activities, restaurants, and parks to enjoy all within walking distance or a short drive. We have compiled a guest book to share these wonderful spaces with you. You will find this upon your arrival.

Guest access
You will have access to our entire house. Our basement is dugout and roughly finished. The stairs leading into the basement are very uneven, use at your own risk. Our washer and dryer are downstairs along with the vacuum cleaner, mops and brooms. You will not have access to our downstairs back room. Our garage will remain locked during your stay.

Other things to note
We have some specifics regarding pets in our home. Please let us know about your pet prior to booking so we can discuss these requirements with you and determine if your pet is good fit for our home. Along with the guest book, if you are bringing a pet, we have loads of suggestions for making our basecamp your pet's home away from home, we will leave a pet book too!

Bowness was a stand alone village for many years and, as such, has hung onto its unique roots. We are surrounded by beautiful green spaces and the mighty bow river; but, to really experience our neighbourhood we suggest taking a wander down Bowness road to seek out some of our gorgeous murals, enjoy eating on some lovely patios, or to participate in one of our many community events.

I am a full time Advanced Care Paramedic by day (and night!) and an avid traveller and outdoors person when I'm off. I love outdoor adventures; running, hiking, biking, paddling, skiing, climbing, surfing, whatever gets me outside really, so when I travel I am always looking for ways to explore. I also love indulging in history and culture while visiting a new place. I often read and research as much as possible prior to my travel dates in hopes of creating a connection to the area. I often travel with my husband Andrew (a teacher) and when possible our dog Dora. These two are the loves of my life! We both are passionate foodies who have a number of diet restrictions, so our preferred way to travel is through Air BnB, having a kitchen to anchor our travels is essential:) In the words of John Muir, " Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike." Those words guide how we travel and who we are. Thank-you for considering us!
