Ideal to explore nearby areas

Fully equipped apartment, perfect for up to four people. Modern, comfortable, very clean, easy communication with Brenda. Wanna explore Banff and Kananaskis? Canmore is the ideal spot. Caf├ęs, shops, restaurants within walking distance. Enjoyed our stay very much. Highly recommended.

Luxury, 2 bedroom condo

This luxury 2 bedroom condo location was perfect, very easily accessible with a stroller. Located just off the main street allowed us to get out downtown and was easy to access the grocery stores. The elevator and under ground parking was good and we were able to fit a full size truck in the parking which was nice. Once inside we found more then we expected as the place was impeccably clean and the very well cared for. We had our 10 month old with us and found there was ample room for him to play on the floor and us to still move around the place. The host Brenda was not able to meet us but ensured we had everything we may need and that we had there contact info in the event we did need something. The fact that she followed up after our proposed arrival time to ensure we weren't having issues was nice.

Exactly what we expected

The apartment was exactly what we expected...functional, well located and fit for our family of four. We found the unit very well equipped, with all the essentials we could have thought of, including a hair dryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, laundry soap, etc. The kitchen was also well equipped with a minimum of pantry items and the required utensils for cooking dinner at home. The outdoor grill is new and well maintained. A nice touch was the park parking pass and the remote control for the garage. The owner responded quickly to our requests. Overall we are very satisfied.

Amazing!

Brenda was very responsive to our needs and provided information quickly. The condo was amazing - spacious and private. It is next door to an amazing pizza place as well. The location (being in Canmore) was a real plus. We could walk to get what we wanted and it was a quick drive to Banff. Would highly recommend this place to anyone - we are hoping to be back someday!

Amazing Canmore Condo

My husband and I rented this unit from February 6th-10th, 2014 when we came to Canmore to get married. I can't say enough good things about the unit owners, Brenda and Barry- they went above and beyond! The unit itself was everything that we were looking for and the location could not be more convenient to downtown. I would highly recommend this rental and hope to stay there again myself one day. Thanks again! A+++ - Submitted through Tripadvisor

Fantastic stay through and through

This is a great, well-maintained condo in a fantastic location walking distance to most things, but away from the busy Railway avenue Road, which has most of the town's "busy" traffic (compared to a normal city, it's very minor traffic volume). We were going to stay at another vacation rental, but it was located overlooking a commercial parking lot right beside some grocery stores and a tire shop, glad we did this one instead! Way better location (we drove past the other for good measure) but only 2 minutes from groceries, liquor stores, etc. by car or about 7 minutes walk. We easily walked to what became our favorite bagel shop maybe 20 yards away - and a tasty pizza place right across the street too with local foods. The condo came with everything we needed and more - they had a great bbq with nice mountain views, picked up some local game at the market down the street, was excellent. Watched some of their blue rays (they had a good selection for us included!) and visited banff and lake louise - it was great to have the parks pass for our stay too, saved almost 20 dollars a day. Everything was clean, the beds were great and it was truly luxury. They supplied shampoo, conditioner and body wash as well as the usual soaps. We forgot our code one night and were locked out - we called the owners late at night - good thing we had their number programmed into our phone - and they were able to unlock the condo for us through their computer! Then we got a text with our front door code a couple of minutes later. They were super nice and accommodating. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants a fantastic place to stay in this great little mountain town. The owners obviously take great pride in their property and take excellent care of it. It's real Canadian hospitality and great value, wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. - Submitted through Tripadvisor

Very convenient, very clean, and very affordable.

My wife and I spent considerable time searching for the right condo before selecting this one. While reviews are helpful, you're always anxious about whether or not you made the right choice. No doubt... we did! We could not have been more pleased with how clean and well equipped this condo was. And for anyone looking for something in downtown Canmore area... look no further. This is the ideal location. It's a short block to Main Street with many unique shops and restaurants. And then you are literally a 5 minute walk from breathtaking scenery. You'll feel like you're far from any city life. The owner really has their act together. From booking through departing, they were very responsive and everything made very easy. - Submitted through Tripadvisor

Mountain Bliss

We loved our stay with our two small children at this wonderful mountain retreat. It is located actually on Canmore's mainstreet, but at the end of it right beside some of the most most beautiful walking trails in the mountains. Everything is within walking distance that we needed. The included underground parking was a life saver getting the kids in and out of the car. The place was very nice, fully upgraded, impeccably clean, and had all the amenities, washer, dryer, stove, dishwasher, all the things that we would have sorely missed staying in a hotel. We will be back next year no doubt! - Submitted through Tripadvisor

Great location, like brand new

Great location close to everything, we parked our car underground and didn't move it until we left. The condo is in great condition, very clean and all the details you need for a nice stay. Mattress was very comfortable. Nice having free internet and local phone to keep in touch and loved the big tv and blu-ray. Highly recommend it, we'll be back for ski season.

Great Canadian hospitality, we love the place

We come to the Canadian Rockies every year from the us and have had our share of vacation rental experiences there...this one is the best by far. The place is really close to the town's main street (about a 30 second walk), but is also really close to the local river and all the walking trails (about a 2 minute walk), so the location is really perfect. It's only a 2 minute drive to the grocery stores and commercial area, but far enough you're not disturbed by the traffic. The owners seem like real good people: we talked to Brenda on the phone and she was really helpful: she even added on a bunch of extra HD sports channels for me for my stay (my oldest son is a pro athlete, I need to stay on top of things). Canadians are always so nice. Super comfy couches, great TV and sound systems and my wife still talks about how nice the bed was. Some of our friends stayed at a local hotel (Holiday Inn I think?) and were really jealous since we paid about the same price...we spent every night at our place and used the awesome kitchen (granite and stainless steel and equipped with everything, including bbq stuff) then went out for some great walks. My friends ended up cancelling their hotel room and moved into our second bedroom. We want to come back for skiing, the locals tell us it's worth the trip. Local tips: try the local beer (it's good, but higher alcohol than at home, and it's at higher elevation too, so watch out!!) - there is a local market on the same block as the condos...I think it's on Thursday or Friday...get the bison burgers and cook them up on the bbq (they have spices in the condo that work great) My wife got some local art and craft stuff too which was really nice. - there's a really nice pizza restaurant across the street - it gets cold at night so make sure to bring a sweater if your going outside.

No more hotels for me - we will be back

This place has all the comforts of home and more, it felt like we were staying in someone's really nice condo not a rental. Everything seems really new and is furnished really nice. Security system is nice to have but seems safe everywhere in this town. Can't beat the location just off the city's main drag and really close to a good pizza restaurant. Bbq was nice to have too.

Fantastic Views - Inside and Out!

We recently had the pleasure to stay in this condo and thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. We were very impressed with the amenities in the unit and with the security measures. Access to the main shopping precinct was easy by walking or driving. The view of the mountains was spectacular with our early morning cup of coffee, and our evening aperitif. It truly was like a 'home away from home' with a few nice extras!

Excellent location and condo, fully recommended!

We had an excellent time and fully enjoyed the condo in Canmore. It provided everything that was advertised and felt that it was well worth the price requested. We had a fantastic holiday. We will be back as clients, well done and greatly appreciated!

Perfect

This is a really great condo in a superb location. We could walk to shopping and many local restaurants. The beds are incredibly comfortable, and the unit was very clean and well appointed. We could have used coffee though! That was the only thing we were missing. We found it very quiet even on new years eve! Overall we had an awesome weekend. We would book this place again for sure.

Beautiful condo, excellent location, great stay!!!

I stayed at this place for about a week and I felt like it was a perfect home away from home. This place was perfectly stocked. They had everything from an excellent BBQ set to complement the fantastic BBQ to Scrabble for those nights when you just don't feel like leaving. You won't need to bring a whole lot with you to settle right in. This place is just off the main strip in Canmore so you won't have to drive to find excellent places to eat and shop. The only downside I can think of is that the underground parking stalls were a bit tight if you have a bigger full size SUV. There was still enough room to load and unload and I think the sacrifice is well worth it to not have to go to an outside lot where your car will be a block of ice in the winter. I would highly recommend this place in the Summer and Winter.

Everything you need

If you are looking for a place to stay close to Banff with everything you need, I would highly recommend staying here. It is within walking distance of the downtown area of Canmore. The condo is brand new and clean. It is a quick trip to Banff and very well valued. - Submitted by verified AirBnB guest.

Perfect

Place was perfect for our group of 4 staying 3 nights. We loved our stay and being able to cook and chill in a nice condo - far better than a hotel experience. - Submitted by verified AirBnB guest

Excellent

Second year running that my family and I have stayed at this condo - we feel it is a home from home and hope that we can return next year when we make our annual trip to Canada from the UK.

Fantastic flat, can't be beat

We were all suitably impressed with the quality of our stay at this flat; this is the way to travel! Free local calls, free wireless, nice bbq to cook some steaks with quality mountain views, and just a few seconds from the center of this little town. This place is in an amazing location, we took walks after supper to fetch a local coffee blend 30 seconds one way, then walked 2 minutes the other way and were on some walking trails that were like we were in the middle of the forest beside a river! Spectacular! The flat is very bright and spacious, very comfortable beds and pillows, fully equipped kitchen, and the owners keep it very clean - Brenda was a delight to deal with for our questions, wish we could have stayed longer. The only negative: my wife noticed that there wasn't any hair conditioner - I can't remember if they said they supply those types of things. Once we sort our flights, we will be booking again for next year.

Lovely place

This was a lovely place to stay! If you want to be in the mountains but away from the business of areas such as Banff I would highly recommend staying here. The condo is beautiful, lots of room for 4 adults, was very clean and the kitchen well stocked to be able to cook or bbq. Canmore is a very nice town and it only took us about 40 minutes to get to Sunshine. The condo is right by the main shopping area and there is a yoga studio very close as well. Will definitely book this place again for future ski trips. - Submitted by verified AirBnB guest

Perfect home base to explore the Canadian Rockies!

This is a perfect place to explore the whole area from! We just came back from our trip here and this apartment was perfect. Its a block off of the main street where all the little stores and coffee shops are & we didn't need to drive anywhere for our evening suppers-which means we got to try our local wines and beers without having to worry about driving home :) The grocery stores are close in a commercial strip mall about 2 minutes drive away - some friends we met rented a condo overlooking the grocery stores and a Canadian tire store (like a little Walmart), let's just say they'll be renting in our location next time, waaay better. There's a local pizza place across the street (Rocky Mountain Pizza) where they make their own awesome pizza crusts and varieties, with lots of drink selections on tap. Its about 20 or 30 minutes from Sunshine Hill, and about the same to Banff (the included parks pass is a nice bonus!). But to be honest we loved spending our time in Canmore itself, and even spent a couple nights in and enjoyed the big screen tv and ordered some movies (oops, forgot to tell the owners, it was movies on demand :|) and sat in front of the cozy fireplace. The heated underground parking garage is a must for this weather - although depending on how the person next to you parks, it can be tight - we had a small car so no problem, but this might be an issue with someone with a big truck or something. The owners even gave us xtra storage for our gear we rented for the week. The place is really clean and maintained really well. I know it seems really minor but they had a really, really nice laundry machine in the apt with steam functions and everything - we ran out of clothes halfway through and the owners said we could use it and the laundry soap if we wanted-we dealt with Brenda and she was super nice, got back to our emails fast and was super friendly about everything. We will be back next year for sure and will definitely be staying here!!! Thx!
