About this listing
Guests love my tour which includes a map of downtown Calgary with local attractions and events. Read my reviews for more!
Secure, underground parking available. I'm very flexible with check-in times.
Your private bedroom includes 40" Sony Bravia, Netflix and XBox. Shared kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities (coin operated on main floor of building).
Perfect location: 7-minute walk to 17th Ave, Mission and downtown. Excellent transit access.
The bedroom is set up to be a hideaway for those tired/rainy/hangover days. Watch/stream movies on the 40" flatscreen from the comfort of your bed. Play music on the speaker system from your own laptop or mobile device using the supplied audio cable. Play games on the Xbox. Or... I guess you could go outside or something; I won't judge.
The bedroom is your own private space during your stay. The rest of the condo, minus the host's bedroom, is available as a shared space. This includes a full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen with fridge and cupboard space, living room with board games and sound system, and balcony with BBQ.
Interaction with guests
I love Calgary and I want you to love it too. I've lived in the area for 10 years and know it better than anyone. Let me know what you're in the mood for and I'll research it for you. I'll take you for a pint at my favourite pub (the Ship and Anchor) or leave you alone; whichever you prefer.
You'll be staying in the heart of Calgary. There's nearby (10-15 minute walk) comedy, trivia nights, board gaming, music shows, karaoke, art galleries, great eats, brew pubs, new and used clothing and vinyl... even 3D printers! There's something for everybody.
We're very central. If you can't walk there, you're a 10 minute walk from the C-train and there are busses everywhere. You will have access to an indoor parking spot if you are driving.
Other things to note
There's an old saying in Calgary: "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute. It'll change." Summer is often partly cloudy with a chance of hail. Winter can mean a foot or two of snow (great for the slopes!) or patio pints in a t-shirt (Chinooks often bring 10-15 degree celsius weather in the middle of winter). Be ready for anything.
Most important: use common sense and show respect for the neighbours and the condo.
- nothing hard (glass, coins, etc) on the hardwood; tapping travels throughout the building.
- cats only please; dogs are not allowed in the building (not my choice!)
- no shoes indoors
- no red wine (or anything else that stains) in the bedroom
- no smoking indoors (balcony is allowed)
- noise isn't usually a problem (except for the balcony) but no crazy parties unless I'm invited
- cleaning rights for the bedroom are reserved for stays of 1 week or longer
- don't lose your keys!

I am a simple nerd with simple needs. I love beer, rock shows, board games, making things and anything sci-fi related. Most of all I love Calgary. It's been my home for 20 years and I've lived in my current condo (the one I host) for 10 years.
I'd love to show you around and introduce you to the best that downtown Calgary has to offer: pubs, art galleries, trivia nights, whatever! This is optional, of course. If you want to keep to yourself, I'll stay out of your way and let you do your thing. My condo is in the cultural centre of the city and is walking distance from the best destinations in the city.
