Our group of 5 rented this half-duplex for a long weekend. We came up to explore Yellowknife and photograph some aurora. Our host met us at the property, and had us inside and given property information within minutes. The place is fairly new, and very nice and clean. Lots of room to spread out and enjoy. The back deck faces mostly north, which allowed for easy aurora viewing right out the door! Given the temperatures were in the -20 C range in the late evenings, being able to do a set of aurora pictures and then come in to warm up was a great feature. We cooked some of our meals (breakfasts, and a dinner) during our time there. The kitchen had *most* needed items, but we were short a few things. We improvised and made it work. There are 3 woks however. This shortage is typical for a newer rental, as time is needed to build up an array of kitchen items. We left a few things behind to add to the stock. The living space temperature controls were impressive, with many thermostats to control the zones of the radiant heat system. This allowed for those wishing to sleep at lower temps to do so, without impacting other rooms. Very nice feature. Wi-fi was fast, and never lagged with 5 people running various devices. The property was not far from town, but yet completely away from traffic and fairly quiet.
Overall, this is a very nice and modern property. It is well adorned. Very roomy and clean, with good temperature control. An ideal place to enjoy aurora, given the deck arrangement. A bit pricier than other places we considered, but given the location and setup for our group (we needed 5 beds), it was hard to beat. We certainly enjoyed our time there, and would certainly stay there again for aurora viewing with a larger (>4) group.
