We live in the scenic "Old Town" part of Yellowknife on a quiet street. Restaurants in our neighbourhood include Bullocks Bistro, the Wildcat Cafe, the Dancing Moose and the Woodyard Brewing Co. It is also close to both Yellowknife Bay and Back Bay and Pilots Monument (an aurora viewing spot).
2 minute walk to the bus stop and parking for 1 vehicle in the yard.
The suite is about a 10 minute drive from the airport. It will cost about 18$ Canadian for the ride and you don't need to book it ahead of time. There will be taxis at the airport but if you do need to call one the number is . There is no bus service from the airport and I'm not able to offer a pick up service. There is a bus that goes very close to the suite which you can use to go downtown and other parts of Yellowknife. It is called the "Old Town/Niven Bus".
Other things to note

My partner Pierre and I have been hosting guests for two years in our suite. We love the outdoors and spend a lot of time out boating and camping. We have a baby boy, two older girls and a young husky in our busy family. I only speak English but Pierre also speaks French.
