We had a wonderful time at the condo.

Review submitted: August 10, 2009   Date of arrival: July 24, 2009

We had a wonderful time at the condo.
It proved to be a great location
and very functional.

Condo was competitive with others
advertised, extras (backpacks, games)
definitely add to value. Building type
was not mentioned as well as proximity
to train...although I can understand you
wouldn't want to advertise the train. It
turned out not to be an issue it was
only slightly disturbing in the early
evening but we didn't hear it much
otherwise...I'm not sure whether it is
better to warn people or not. The fact
that it was a commercial building was a
surprise. We passed by twice before we
realized we had the right address. This
is not a deterrent but because we were
looking for a traditional condo building
it made it more difficult to find. It
may be helpful to disclose more clearly
in the future.

Place was clean as expected. Use of
backpacks, movies, games, internet and
park pass were all very
huge bonuses and much appreciated by
us!!!!

We would likely stay with you again if
our travels take us to Canmore. Overall
we did have a wonderful time though
thank you for providing the
means to give my young family an awesome
vacation ( even the baby
enjoyed it).

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for your comments. They are very valuable to us in determining chat changes we need to make to the service or amenities we offer.

We have added information about the train to our website, and have updated our driving direction to better describe the building you are looking for upon arrival.

Glad everyone had a great time!

loved the layout of the condo - just beautiful!

Review submitted: May 9, 2014   Date of arrival: July 1, 2011

We enjoyed our stay here, so very much! The location is perfect! And what a breathtaking view from the balcony (back) and the bedroom (front). We fell in love with Canmore and the beautiful Rockies. We walked everywhere from the cono (groceries, hiking, parks, playgrounds and Divine Cravings -- yum!). We celebrated our country, on the 1st, and had a fantastic view of the fireworks from the balcony! The 3 kids loved it here and felt at home, played board games or hung out on the balcony, while I prepared meals in your well-equipped kitchen! Thank you so much. We hope to be back some day! Amazing family memories were created here! PS we also loved the layout of the condo - just beautiful!

Charla & Sean, when we arrive at your place, we realize how passionate of your mountains you are. You want to make sure that w are perfectly comfortable so we can fully enjoy your beautiful mountain locale. The extras are what make you so different from a hotel or another apartment rental, and what makes us feel like home: National Park Pass & Rockies Trail Guide; Backpacks and Picnic Equipment; Board Games and DVDs (so we can fully enjoy the fireplace!), etc. Thank you so much, we will come back for sure!

Eggs Benedict to-die-for at Craig's Restaurant and of course, you can't beat the bagels and cream cheese and coffee in this complex. Thank you so much! We'll be sure to return.

Great place in a great place! Love the Canmore area even more than Banff. Hiing every day, fishing, falling in love again with the Canadian Rockies. For good places to eat on a budget don't miss: Thai Pagoda (downtairs), the Mexican restaurant across Main St from the Wood & Barpa Bill's (Greek) on Bear St in Banff. Thanks for the memories. Don't miss the Bagel Place downstairs ... Yum! The Bagel Co downstairs is the best!

First rate management

Review submitted: March 20, 2014   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

We were booked into this unit during the aftermath of the flood and road washouts. The management did everything to keep us up to date on the situation and to make it possible for us to complete our vacation plans. There was a very good instruction manual on site. It could have been a result of the flooding disruption, but our only complaint was pet/human hairs on the bedding. We were able to locate clean bedding and make the changes so it was not the end of the world.

We had a wonderful stay in Canmore

Review submitted: March 20, 2014   Date of arrival: August 1, 2008

"We had a wonderful stay in Canmore. We traveled from place to place for l0 days the this was the only condo we stayed in. It was very comfortable and the location was convenient. Having the dvd player and games was a nice touch. My only comment is that the prospective tenant should be told about the stair. It wasn't a problem for us but I think it could be for someone older or with a disability.

We had a wonderful stay and would recommend the condo to any couple visiting the Canmore area."

Convenient, comfortable condo

Review submitted: March 20, 2014   Date of arrival: July 10, 2010

"We had a fabulous time using Canmore as our home base for exploring the Canadian rockies. The condo had everything we could want from a place to stay. It is a very convenient location for accessing services, trails, and even the highway to other places. The fully appointed kitchen makes it easy to save money and eat ""home"" some of the time.The computer with high speed internet saved us from bringing our computer along, and we definitely used the free long-distance phone. We headed into the Banff National Park many days and having the park pass made that easy and more affordable. The owners have really gone out of their way to make this place comfortable and special.
The Sobey's market across the railroad tracks made it very easy to save money on food and eat well. They have a good produce department, fresh sushi, and a huge amount of sandwiches and pre-prepared meals. The bagel place downstairs is fantastic, and they serve fresh, locally roasted coffee. It was easy to grab a quick breakfast and be on our way. We're not even bagel people, but these were so good we managed to squeeze a dozen into our luggage to take home. Also downstairs we had a wonderful and affordable meal at the Thai restaurant.
While the condo is truly in a great location, it is not the quietest of places. Sandwiched between the highway and the railroad, there is definitely a town vibe and sound. Admittedly, the place is the quietest with the windows closed, but being summer we wanted to open up and let the breeze in. The bedroom is noisy at night with the windows open, but the owners have thoughtfully placed a fan so you can close the window and still be comfortable. And as for the railroad, we actually came to love it!
I would highly recommend this vacation rental. It is truly as it is represented. The owners have made it clean and comfortable, the location is convenient, and it's a great springboard for exploring the area."

This condo was perfect for us. The kitchen had all that we needed, the computer/internet access as well as the free long distance calling was a bonus. The washer and dryer were great as well.

Great location but noisy

Review submitted: March 20, 2014   Date of arrival: August 1, 2013

The whole reservation process was easy and really good. Char kept in touch with us and all of our questions were answered quickly. Char met us at the condo on our first day and gave us loads of tourist advice as well as taking care of any problems we had immediately. The unit was clean, the bed comfortable, and most kitchen items were already there. We did have difficulty using the TV as the remote listed in the directions from the owner wasn't there. The unit faces a major highway on the bedroom side so was noisy all night. The other side faces the railroad tracks, but the train noises weren't too bad. We couldn't clean the barbeque grill as there wasn't a brush for this purpose. There isn't any aC which shouldn't be needed most days. We didn't really miss it except that it would have helped at night with the highway noise. All in all, a good location (near grocery, town, Banff) and a nice condo.

Convenient location and good value

Review submitted: March 20, 2014   Date of arrival: July 1, 2012

The unit is an easy walk to shopping and dining in Canmore. Train provided entertainment, but did not interfere with stay. Conveniences like laundry soap, National Park Pass and day pack added to functionality and value of unit. Although we had a good stay the unit is a little tired and could use painting, carpet cleaning, and general maintenance. Very fastidious guests might be put off by current condition of the unit.

Admittedly, the place is the quietest with the windows closed, but being summer we wanted to open up and let the breeze in. The bedroom is noisy at night with the windows open, but the owners have thoughtfully placed a fan so you can close the window and still be comfortable. And as for the railroad, we actually came to love it!
I would highly recommend this vacation rental. It is truly as it is represented. The owners have made it clean and comfortable, the location is convenient, and it's a great springboard for exploring the area."

Great value and ideal "hub" location for numerous

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: September 10, 2010

Very nice,clean place to stay while visiting Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise, etc. It was great to have a W/D in the unit. The train really wasn't a big bother either. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and was very pleased with the unit!

Nice place, super clean, great price

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: July 1, 2010

This was a great place to stay in Canmore, which I highly recommend over Banff (less crowded). The property was conveniently located, extremely clean, and well-equipped. Service and communication throughout the process was great.

Great place with everyone one could want!

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: July 7, 2010

This condo was perfect for us. The kitchen had all that we needed, the computer/internet access as well as the free long distance calling was a bonus. The washer and dryer were great as well. I think perhaps the couch and loveseat need to be replaced as they are most uncomfortable. That would be our only complaint.

Perfect Base to explore the Rockies

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: June 6, 2011

This apartment was very comfortable with lovely views of the mountains over the train line. It was very close to a large supermarket which was very handy. It had lots of space which was great since we were travelling with a baby. We loved it and wished we could have stayed longer.

Great location but noisy

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: August 13, 2013

The whole reservation process was easy and really good. Char kept in touch with us and all of our questions were answered quickly. Char met us at the condo on our first day and gave us loads of tourist advice as well as taking care of any problems we had immediately. The unit was clean, the bed comfortable, and most kitchen items were already there. We did have difficulty using the TV as the remote listed in the directions from the owner wasn't there. The unit faces a major highway on the bedroom side so was noisy all night. The other side faces the railroad tracks, but the train noises weren't too bad. We couldn't clean the barbeque grill as there wasn't a brush for this purpose. There isn't any aC which shouldn't be needed most days. We didn't really miss it except that it would have helped at night with the highway noise. All in all, a good location (near grocery, town, Banff) and a nice condo.

Convenient location and good value

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: January 4, 2014

The unit is an easy walk to shopping and dining in Canmore. Train provided entertainment, but did not interfere with stay. Conveniences like laundry soap, National Park Pass and day pack added to functionality and value of unit. Although we had a good stay the unit is a little tired and could use painting, carpet cleaning, and general maintenance. Very fastidious guests might be put off by current condition of the unit.

Surprisingly comfortable with amazing views

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: January 18, 2014

The rental has everything you could need and was a real home away from home. Canmore is charming without the pretentiousness of Banff. The condo is walking distance from downtown. Loft location above a restaurant was surprisingly quiet. Pet friendly. Couldn't have asked for more.

Perfect location and wonderful extras!

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: January 16, 2014

"Everything was wonderful! This condo is in a great location.

The little extras you had available were also welcome - the park pass made our daily excursions a lot easier, the Deuter bag allowed me to carry something a lot smaller than my normal day pack, and coming home every night made the entire stay worthy of a return visit.

We explored as much as possible during our week there, took in recommendations from previous guests, and contributed to the pamphlet pile. The location makes it easy to explore Canmore, Banff, Yoho, Kanaskis, and many other parks in the area! You're also not that far away from Icefields Parkway.

Thank you! If we ever stay in Canmore, again, your place will be one of the first we consider.

Review submitted: August 10, 2009   Date of arrival: August 10, 2009

We had a wonderful time at the condo.
It proved to be a great location
and very functional.

Condo was competitive with others
advertised, extras (backpacks, games)
definitely add to value. Building type
was not mentioned as well as proximity
to train...although I can understand you
wouldn't want to advertise the train. It
turned out not to be an issue it was
only slightly disturbing in the early
evening but we didn't hear it much
otherwise...I'm not sure whether it is
better to warn people or not. The fact
that it was a commercial building was a
surprise. We passed by twice before we
realized we had the right address. This
is not a deterrent but because we were
looking for a traditional condo building
it made it more difficult to find. It
may be helpful to disclose more clearly
in the future.

Place was clean as expected. Use of
backpacks, movies, games, internet and
park pass were all very
huge bonuses and much appreciated by
us!!!!

We would likely stay with you again if
our travels take us to Canmore. Overall
we did have a wonderful time though
thank you for providing the
means to give my young family an awesome
vacation ( even the baby
enjoyed it).

Owners response: Thank you for the great comments and suggestions. Information about the train has been added to our website (rockiesrentals.ca/vacationrentals), and we have updated the driving directions to better describe the building so it is easier to find.

We had a wonderful stay in Canmore. We traveled from place to place for l0 days the this was the only condo we stayed in. It was very comfortable and the location was convenient. Having the dvd player and games was a nice touch. My only comment is that the prospective tenant should be told about the stair. It wasn't a problem for us but I think it could be for someone older or with a disability.

We had a wonderful stay and would recommend the condo to any couple visiting the Canmore area.
