Canadian living in Los Angeles working in the film biz.
This place was an amazing experience within itself. Nestled in amongst the Rockies, the house has everything you could possibly need. The king sized bed (main bed) was super comfortable and well needed for a day full of hiking adventures which are all close by.
The location is about 20 minutes drive away from Banff, and a short 10-15 minute (walk) from downtown Canmore.
Communication with Geoff was always prompt. Would definitely recommend this place!
The Mystic Springs property was wonderful. The location was good and had access to a heated pool and spa.
It had all right amenities which made our stay very comfortable. Geoff was extremely responsive to all my messages and replied very quickly to any questions I had he also provided us with great information on what to do in the local area. We couldn't have been any happier with the accomodation.
The condo was very comfortable and convenient to Banff and to the National Park. Canmore was a lovely town and much less crowded than Banff.
We enjoyed our stay in Canmore. The property was clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could want. It was a great place to stay and take day trips to Lake Louise and Banff, and was in a perfect location to explore the town. As a little family of 3 plus a family friend, it was ideal.
We had a great experience at the Mystic Springs townhome. The place had everything you needed and downtown Canmore was only a couple blocks away. Geoff was a great host and was prompt with his emails when we had any questions.
The condo was fantastic and provides you with everything you may need for your vacation. Also a great location for anything you want to do in Canmore!
Loved the location, so close to Banff yet out of the hustle and bustle. Comfortable and clean, definitely would come back.
We went there August 18th to 21st and really enjoyed the place. A town house where many of the neighbours are for rent as Geoff's place. It was suprisingly quiet. Walking distance to Canmore downtown and 2 min drive from grocery/liquor store. 12-15 min drive to Banff National Park.
There's a huge heated pool + hot tub that is perfect when travelling with kids. We did BBQ twice and never had to wait has they were not really used. The only bad side to us is that there was not much natural light on the main floor (kitchen/living room).
Other than that, everything was as expected.
I do recommend Geoff's place without hesitation.
The property came across very much as a pure rental property with the owner living far away. It definitely served its purpose and was good value for the space but there definitely was room for improvement, particularly around cleanliness and comfort. It didn't feel as much as a home as most of the other Airbnbs I've stayed in which was a shame. People clearly treated it as a rental property too because it just wasn't in the best of condition. Not awful but not great either.
* Space - plenty of space for the four of us and nice to have a separate dining area
* Community amenities - nice to have a pool, grill and hot tub
* Wifi - was strong and reliable
The not so good:
* Furniture was dated
* Despite the house rules asking for shoes off (which we abided by) the floor was super dirty - after walking around barefoot for a couple hours, our soles were blackened
* Dishwasher was awful -- it was falling down and didn't even clean dishes
* which meant dirty dishes and pans in all the cupboards -- and no sponge to clean them with
* if you're planning to cook there, be warned. Besides salt and pepper, there were no spices or seasonings to cook with -- just some leftover sugar packets and butter flavor cooking spray
* the house manual and Airbnb had the incorrect wifi instructions -- and a secondary set of instructions was hastily added as a loose handwritten note.
Still a nice quiet stay with plenty of space. I don't know if I would stay there again but it served its purpose.
Geoff was a great guest to host. If you are concerned about dogs in your place, his dog was a gem. They left the place in a very clean manner and were very easy to communicate with.
Geoff is awesome, great guy, very responsible, easy and effective communication. Recommended!
Geoff and his wife were a breeze to host. The apartment was kept in order, no major issues to mention. Would have them back any time. Good people.
Geoff was an excellent guest, polite and professional, clean and quiet, and respectful of my house rules. Happy to have hosted him for his stay in Vancouver, and look forward to having him again. I would recommend Geoff to any host looking for a fantastic guest.
Geoff was a great guest. He was very communicative from booking through check-in and super self-reliant during his stay. He was very respectful of the property and left the house in beautiful condition upon departure. I would welcome Geoff back any time and would highly recommend him to any prospective hosts.
Geof was a nice Guest
I met Geoff and Melanie on Boxing Day and they were very easy going, and easy to communicate with throughout the booking process.
We did not have the opportunity to meet Geoff but had online communication. Geoff arrival was a bit chaotic due to last minute flight change. Once Geoff reached the house, we believe everything was fine and thus we do recommend Geoff as a guest.
Geoff was super respectful and honest and it was a pleasure having him and his lovely girlfriend at my home. He left the place in great condition and super clean, thx!
Great guest, welcome anytime!
