About Joy and Vincent - Collingwood Retreat

We grew up in Calgary and wouldn't leave it for all the money in the world. We love the culture, the food, and the proximity to the mountains. Hope you feel the same when you come for a visit.

As we expected, we had a great time in this house

  • 5 of 5

This isn't our first rodeo with these owners. After only one experience with them last year we decided to make it a priority to visit one of their properties. We have now stayed at charleswood and Collingwood (blocks away from each other)

We love the neighborhood. Very easy to get to coming from Edmonton, and it has quick access to major arteries in Calgary. Leaving for the mountains is as easy as it gets! The neighborhood itself is very nice. We greatly enjoyed simply walking around.

Be sure to try LOTUS for great Indian food, and it's only 100 feet away! Also if you want pizza, right beside 7/11 is the best cheapest pizza place in the city (pangea?)

All around the house was clean, up to date, and had every amenity nearby. The back yard was awesome for hanging out and everyone had plenty of room.

Honestly? 0 complaints. And we will be back again.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family weekend in Calgary. Clean, bright and nicely appointed in a nice neighborhood just minutes from U of C. We had a wonderful time despite the rather unpleasant and unseasonable cold weather! Will certainly stay again in the future. Thanks.

Charleswood Spring Review, Excellent Facility with children's toys, garage to park in

  • 5 of 5

The Charleswood house retreat is very modern, very clean and accommodates 8 people easily. The bedrooms are all large and thoughtfully finished with a lot of space for additional luggage or apparel. The laundry facility came in handy even though we had no intention on using it. The deck is awesome and the BBQ came in handy for some of the cooking and sun tanning. I would recommend this facility to anyone. 5 ***** plus more.
