Welcome to my home! Stay with me and you will share my clean, bright apartment in the highly desirable Calgary area of Kensington. You have your own private room with double bed, small dresser, huge closet with shoe rack, work station for your laptop with lamp and TV with HDMI. The location of this rental is pedestrian and transit friendly (900m to C-train)! The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, leather furniture and a 4k TV with cable and Netflix! Use of parking spot is negotiable.
Clean, tidy and organized. I hate messes so if you like clean, this will work out in your favour. I appreciate little things like putting things away back where you found them as well as scraping your plate, rinsing your plate and putting it in the dishwasher. Otherwise, I'll handle the rest of the cleaning.
Everywhere but my room. It is a shared space so I use the living room and kitchen too. I'll do my best to make sure you have access at times you prefer. If you're the type of person who likes to watch some TV before bed, for example, just let me know and I can easily accommodate. I like to watch hockey, do a little gaming and watch shows or movies on Netflix but in the summer months I like to minimize screen time.

Be respectful of noise as this is a shared accommodation and a condo building. 10pm is the noise by-law. Please don't make my neighbors angry at me :).
- If you smoke, kindly use the balcony and always keep the balcony door closed before you light up.
-The kitchen, dining room and living room are shared. I do use the kitchen, dining room and living room as well. As you are my guest, I'll try to make sure you have access to them as much as is reasonable. Feel free to consult with me on this.

I'm Laurent (or Lawrence if you prefer), a born and raised Calgarian and overall proud Canadian whose professional background is in education (junior high school teacher) and military (Royal Canadian Navy). I'm a mild-mannered person by nature and my girlfriend Connie (who will usually travel with me). We're both suckers for great food and drink and we love anything new, fresh and local. We love to get a true taste (yum...) of wherever we travel. Some of my memorable trips include a semester's stay in the Balkans (I taught in Kosovo for Teaching Across Borders, a program offered through my Alma Mater, the U of C), as well as trips to France and Sri Lanka. Connie and I also had fantastic trips together last summer to the heart of British Columbia wine country as well as a more urban getaway to Toronto. One day when time and finances allow, we plan to tackle Thailand and Bali as well as the UK and Ireland.
