Guests have absolutely loved this one bedroom penthouse with large patio overlooking the North Hill and Riley Park. Some guests have become regulars and have written it is the BEST Airbnb they have ever experienced and has the most comfortable bed EVER!! It is spotless and well equipped with free parking, wifi and AC. Only a 2 minute walk to the C-train, Bow River, pathways, and various parks. Located in trendy Kensington, it is surrounded by many eclectic shops, cafes, and restaurants.
Conveniently located in the heart of the trendy Kensington neighbourhood and with a walking score of 98%, it is surrounded by numerous retail and eclectic shops, parks and pathways, a theatre, restaurants, and cafe's. In addition to local pub food, you might want to try Red's Diner for breakfast (they serve delicious Fratello Coffee) and for your special night out I recommend you reserve a table at COTTO Italian Comfort Food. Both are just down 10th Street and offer excellent food, good prices and exceptional service.
The furnishings in the condo are custom and modern that you and your partner will love. The bedroom is plush and inviting with an exceptionally comfortable pillow-top queen mattress and quality bedding that guests have referred to as an "Airbnb dream!" The deep tub in the bathroom allows you to comfortably soak after a busy day of negotiations or exploring.
The building is made of concrete construction and well insulated so despite being in a bustling neighbourhood, it is very quiet. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for cooking including spices, and there is high speed wifi, AC and cable TV. Note that there is no desk but the large granite counter top with stools, and handy plug in for your laptop, provide a suitable working space.
The distance from the parking stall #54 to the elevator and front door is only about 30 footsteps (and no stairs) so the condo is easy to access. The condo has floor to ceiling windows that provide a sense of space and openness and the large patio with bistro set is for you to enjoy the beautiful sunsets and late afternoon sun.
