“A bit disappointing given the cost of this rental”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is a nice enough vacation rental, tucked away in a cozy backyard.

And we appreciate that two bikes were made available to us, which is the main reason why I went for this place (although two out of the four bikes were not in functioning order).

This is not a cheap rental, and I was a bit disappointed about a few experiences we had given the high cost to rent this place:

-There was a little backyard social taking place when we arrived into the backyard area, and yet we felt a bit ignored by the owners. E-mail communications was a bit frosty as well (E.g., when requesting the location of the rental).
-There are lots of rules to read for this place, including being quiet in the backyard. And yet the two nights we stayed there, there were audible social gatherings taking place involving the owners. We go to bed early, and you have to keep the windows open due to the lack of air conditioning, so you hear everything.
-No cable TV (and A/C). There really should better TV options when charging this much for a rental.
-Too many rules that are communicated in a 'finger-wagging' kind of way. Better remove your bedding and sort your garbage/recyclables accordingly, or else!
-Other things to consider: No washer/dryer, which you would expect from a vacation rental; and no real coffee maker (just one of those hand press ones).

I paid more for this rental than I did for a business class room at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, WA, which was a luxurious experience. I really felt like I overpaid for this "Alberta Arts Tiny Gem" vacation rental. And I think my 3/5 star rating is generous.

If you read the description of our rental and the fact that we always get 5 star reviews on multiple sites with all of our guests loving our tiny home and what we provide. Would you have would have possibly rented another place that had the options that you wanted? If you see what we provide and do not provide. We are very clear what we provide such as ROKU tv, no ac, bedding, food or no, following trash rules and check in check out accommodations, etc.. maybe if you did not wish to do those things you would choose a hotel instead of a vacation rental? We also chatted with you many times and were very nice helping you out when you needed and as we say we have lives and work and this is also our home so yes we share the yard as stated in the listing write up. We do not always as we say talk to our renters but sometimes as in your case we do. We don't want to impose on having to chat people up and also we are usually pretty tired after long work days and exhausted. And we made many trips to help you with bike locks etc. and also we do say we have older bikes for use not professional ones. It just so happened that one had a flat that we did not know about until your stay. Overall this is a very cheep rental for getting a whole apartment in an amazing neighborhood. But we do have neighborhood rules including quiet times etc. We are not a hotel but we are a home that offers you a home as well.
I suggest next time you want an experience that is more like a hotel vibe you go with that.

We have so many 5 star ratings and love our guests.
