About our home

Quiet, newly renovated, modern 2 bedroom 1.5 bath condo with fireplace and a coastal cottage vibe, sleeps five with a modern sofa that makes into an extremely comfortable single bed. This condo is literally a few steps from a 1000 km of inter-connected biking and hiking pathways and trails. It also has direct access to the Bow River and is a quick and gorgeous drive to Canmore and Banff National Park (50 min) with some of the worlds best skiing, climbing, hiking - as well as one of the most scenic and rejuvenating hot springs in the world!

You'll find this condo in the quiet, beautifully treed neighbourhood of Varsity, with quick access to the Trans-Canada Highway. The University of Calgary a 20 minute walk, and Market Mall, with its 240 shops and services, including a large grocery store, is a 5 minute walk. It's also a quick walk to the pubs, theatres and nightlife of the new University District (12 minutes). Very high speed Internet is included, as well as multiple streaming entertainment channels such as Netflix and Prime. There is a BOSE bluetooth speaker for steaming music from your phone, and the television turns into any one of 1000's of paintings or photographs you can choose yourself - from galleries around the world - when you are not using it for movies or shows.

A world class hub of energy and technology, Calgary is home to the Calgary Stampede for 10 days in July and is also home to the National Music Centre of Canada, as well as the architectural marvels of the Calgary Peace Bridge and the must-see Downtown Calgary Public Library. You can also enjoy theatre and music at the Art's Commons, and check-out Platform Calgary, which is catapulting Calgary onto the world stage for creativity and innovation in technology.

There are dozens of games hidden in the coffee table for relaxing with friends and lots of interesting books to read if you like the topics of psychology, nature, culture and leadership. I just downsized and only kept my favourites - so please leave them when you go!

Free street and underground parking are included and there is a video monitored secure bike lock-up area. This condo has both stair and elevator access with good security.

Direct access to multiple bus routes is directly outside - and the Brentwood C-Train station is also within walking distance.

A comfortable, convenient and charming base to relax between your city and wilderness adventures!
