About the property

Upscale newly furnished 2 bedroom condo in a great location

This particular unit is a main floor 2 bedroom condo with direct access onto 17A St - the nicest street in Bankview. It's across the street from a small park. There are only six townhouse units in the building each with it's own private entry unlike an apartment building. It's a very secure property with decorative steel screen doors and full video surveillance for your security and peace of mind. I've owned the property for nearly twenty years and have full time maintenance people to fix irritants and keep it in pristine condition.

All the furnishings in this unit are brand new this year.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed with a firm mattress. It features six feet wide mirrored closet doors and a large dresser. Likewise, the second bedroom has an identical queen size bed with a firm mattress. The unit can sleep four.

The kitchen has tons of upgraded maple cabinets, an oversize fridge, range, over the range microwave, double sink, garbage disposal and dishwasher.

The living room boasts an instant on gas fireplace. WiFi (25MB) is included at no charge. There is a new 40" LED 1080P Smart TV so you can connect to your existing providers like Netflix. The dining room features a natural pine table with four chairs.

There is a patio window onto the front deck which has a gas powered BBQ.

About Gordon Freedman

I was a co-founder of a medical software company in the eighties which we took public in a reverse takeover in 1995. With the proceeds I purchased some properties in Calgary. This is my absolute favourite building because of it's interesting architecture and great location.

In business, the customer is king. It's extremely important to me that you both enjoy and speak highly of your stay. To this end you can text me at any time if there are problems or issues and I'll get them fixed. I have no business without happy customers ...

Gordon Freedman purchased this townhome in 1997

Why Gordon Freedman chose Southwest Calgary

You're in an amazing location to explore the best that Calgary has to offer. You're staying in a ground floor, single level stacked townhouse and not an apartment. The unit has it's own forced air heating system unlike the hot water heating systems in apartment buildings. You have considerably more privacy and isolation from neighbors compared to an apartment - you won't smell your neighbors cooking in the hallways.

It's a clean well cared for building with an owner that cares about you both enjoying your stay and feeling you got great value for money.

What makes this townhome unique

We're looking for guests who are singles, couples or families with children. While we want you to enjoy your stay we expect you to respect the 'quiet enjoyment' of other residents in the building.

It's my first venture into renting out short term furnished units and all other tenants in the building are under long term leases. The demographic in the building is 25-45 white collar professionals.

Amazing place to stay in Calgary!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but positive things to say about this cute condo. I rented it for my parents while they were visiting me in Calgary, since my 440 sq ft apartment doesn't really offer much flexibility. This condo is located just close enough to downtown to make walking an enjoyable option, but is far enough outside the core to be nice and quiet. While we did enjoy some of Calgary's restaurants, both of my parents love to cook, so we took advantage of the the fully stocked kitchen as we wanted, which is a great option while travelling. Mom and Dad reported that the beds were comfortable and they had a wonderful time. Thank you for everything!

Nice area to stay

Very clean, very accessible to downtown - either by walking or by car - as it is close to the major access roads.

Great apartment in a fun location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our dog spent a great week at the apartment. It's close to funky 17th Avenue to walk to restaurants and bars. The apartment is well furnished with everything you need for a stay. The bed is super comfortable. Parking is easy right out front. I would recommend it for a stay in Calgary. Close enough to everything but in a quiet residential neighborhood with a nice small park across the street. The owner was quick with responses to questions when we had them. The electronic access, to having to keep track of a key, made it easy.

Clean, good location but not much else

  • 3 of 5

Advertised that you could smoke on the deck, but when we arrived found out it wasn’t 420 friendly... place was very clean but didn’t have many extras. Four people staying and only two bath towels provided. No real cooking supplies or basics provided. Good for a quick stay, but wouldn’t want to spend more than a couple nights.

Owner's Response: I apologize for our 420 policy, it was written three years ago. I don't think anyone would object nowadays to smoking marijuana on a private deck where cigarette smoking was allowed. All you had to do was text and if you had I would have told you that there are extra towels and blankets in the linen closet in the hallway. The kitchen has every utensil anybody could need - pots, pans , plates, silverware, mixing bowls, kitchen knives. We even bought a special pan for cooking pancakes for a family from the Nederland's that stayed there for a month. When you first arrived you texted and said the place was very clean - it was actually spotless and because of that you are only my second three star review out of fifty reviews. Up until your review, 98% of guests rated the condo higher. So please next time text so I can look after you. It's my primary method of supporting you whilst protecting your privacy ...

Located in an architectural outstanding building, opposite a small park on the nicest street in Bankview - a gentrified neighborhood . It's only a short walk to all the shops and restaurants of 17th Ave without actually living among the noise and bustle. Walking distance to LRT (light rail transit). The location provides a central location to malls, parks, hospitals, the university and college of art.

The rocky mountains are an hour drive away with world class skiing and sightseeing.
