Sunny room in spacious home. It's an old house, so it has a few quirks, but it is cozy & lovely. Choice of two rooms (see other listing). About a 20-30 min walk to Whyte, Downtown or University, with good bus access. Next to Mill Creek Ravine, and a bakery nearby. Wifi, yard with fire pit, claw foot bath, Smart TV, record player, books, piano. Slowly re-decorating :) Ideal for term stays - international grad students, artists in residence, etc.

Guest access
Make yourself at home :)

Other things to note
The main bathroom upstairs only has a claw foot bathtub, there is no shower there. There is a shower available in the basement bathroom - which isn't a lovely aesthetic, but it is functional. There is no microwave in the kitchen. I just prefer not to have one, but if any long term guests feel strongly about that, I can always temporarily provide that.

search Old Strathcona for info, it is a lovely neighbourhood with lots of amenities :) There is a ravine very near by with walking/ running/ biking paths, and a bakery down the street, and many restaurants, pubs, and grocery options within a 15-20 minute walk (on Whyte)

I'm nice :) I enjoy the usual things: red wine, good/healthy food, music, laughter, travel, yoga, dance, art, reading, interesting and diverse people, outdoors stuff, etc. I work away a lot, and keep a busy schedule in general, but take the time to make guests feel welcome and provide tips on how to best enjoy the area. As a traveler, I'm interested in a more genuine, local/personal, adventurous, and affordable experience. I've traveled a fair amount across North America as well as in Spain, Mexico, Colombia, and Australia; I hope to explore more soon. I have my minimum stay set to 30 days due to the current City of Edmonton regulations re: Airbnb. Please feel free to message me if your trip plan does not exactly conform to those requirements, to see if we can work it out).

During your stay
It depends, sometimes I am here, sometimes I am not - I communicate very well over text and can provide recommendations in the neighbourhood and directions to places, etc.
