This basement suite features high ceilings and big, bright windows, hardwood, tile and carpet floors, central air conditioning, forced air and electric heat, top quality bedding and furnishings, original art work and tons of books. One of the best features is our backyard that has been on several garden tours. It includes a variety of interesting plants, a fish pond, large stone fireplace and three private seating areas with comfortable outdoor furniture. This area is perfect for morning coffee, late afternoon tea, or a glass of wine next to the fireplace!

About Paige Dawes

The kids have moved out!!! We are a professional couple who would like to reduce our professional commitments and focus on more home time. We have a beautiful home close to campus with an amazing garden, fish pond, outdoor fireplace, all accessible to our guests. We like to travel, garden and cook. As hosts, we are available but non intrusive. We have travelled all over the world and when we travel, we generally tend to rent accommodation similar to ours so we appreciate the extra touches in the kitchen , or the living room or the bathroom, which make a trip, whether for business or holiday, a little more relaxing. Forget hotels, stay in our place and enjoy a real home!!!

Paige Dawes purchased this house in 1988

We have a very quiet home although we do have a black Lab upstairs living with us. We prefer non smokers and non partyiers as we live upstairs. You are welcome to have guests over as long as they are reasonably quiet. We are happy to provide extras upon request as we have another bedroom in the basement immediately adjacent to the suite which can be used as an office or extra bedroom. If you need something that is not in the suite, chances are we have it upstairs and can provide it for you ie unusual cooking utensils, basic spices etc.

Clean, quiet, bright & spacious suite. Friendly, helpful owners. Quick, easy access to everything I needed. Will have to go back again when their beautiful yard & gardens are in full bloom. Would definitely recommend this rental.

Great experience! No complaints whatsoever

  • 5 of 5

I stayed five nights and had an excellent experience with the place. It had everything I could have asked for being away from home on business. Very quiet suite, and nicely decorated. It genuinely was a home away from home. I would absolutely stay there again.

Perfect set up in Saskatoon

  • 5 of 5

We have just thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Judy's in Saskatoon. She was incredibly welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed.

The location is ideal as it is close to the river, the university and great places to eat. It was easy and very pleasant to walk to great cafes and shops.

Thank you, Judy, for a wonderful stay.

We will definitely try to stay with you again.

Privacy issues

  • 2 of 5

Apartment looks exactly as the pics, nice and clean, nice house in good area.

The main problem is with the owner, he is obsessive with saving electricity usage, keeps changing the thermostat setting to the minimum when it was extreemly cold and while I'm not home. Has storage room inside the the apartment where he keeps his plants with only one access through the apartment.

Owner's Response: Samir was a polite guest but insisted on leaving all electric heaters on at their highest setting while he was away for up to ten hours a day. This is expensive,wasteful and a fire hazard and completely unnecessary as it takes just a few minutes to heat the apartment as it also has central heating.

Super cozy and homey

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. The owners were so welcoming and accommodating to our needs. The rooms are cozy and we felt right at home. It is located in a great spot near the university and just a short drive from all kinds of amenities. We will definitely use this property again.
