To get to the U of A, go out the front door, turn right, walk to the end of this street.  turn right, walk to the end of this street.



BRRR!  Gets chilly in Alberta



But warm in our home.

(we don’t have a south deck. Ha-ha — jokes on you)


Don’t you love snow?


Summer is better, trust me. 



Front Room after tenants 

have cleaned it.  That’s a lie.

We have a cleaning pro.

That rubber tree won’t give up.


We have a large dining area but tenants spill food on rug, so we have this DVD player to trick them into eating in kitchen.




This is a photo of one of the hot chicks in our home.  That’s another lie.  That’s a silly cartoon.

Newly tiled downstairs shower. Note the

“rain forest” shower head. That’s translucent glass

brick to thwart Peeping Toms. Not that there are any.


And you may do your washing by hand but…


… we have a washing machine and gas

dryer with a brand new laundry tub.


And if you’re into green (and we hope you are) we have a forty foot clothes line…


…and in our spacious backyard you can grow your own vegetables.


You have a security system/monitor that allows you to check some doors and windows  in parts of our common area, namely the living room.

You control this system.  Anyone in the house can turn it off.  As landlords we are concerned about winter temperatures in the house when it is empty.  We ask that you turn on the system when the house is empty.  Thanks.


The third bedroom on the first floor opens to an

attached garage.

Anyone  is welcome to live in our home and over the course of the years we have always enjoyed providing rooms for a variety of housemates representing diverse cultures, religions, ethnic backgrounds and ages and sexes.

Foreign students, students, graduate students, part time students, and all members of the public have enjoyed living in our home. They are all welcome.

We are under 300 metres from the University of Alberta, and the majority of our applicants are from the campus since there is a critical need for housing. This is particularly apparent for grad students.  But we welcome those who are not students.

Oh, did we mention? We have once-a-week maid service?

And a part-time gardener.




Kate and Jaron own the house. They want

you to feel at home. They ENCOURAGE

tenants to set things up so tenants

run the day-to-day activities

of the house. In other words,

the inmates are in charge

of the asylum.
