We want your rental to be a fantastic experience. To help with this, it
is useful if everyone is of similar mind. Some restrictions: If one or more is going
to be a problem,.
No smoking. This is a non-smoking property. In the house, in the yard, on the decks.
No alcohol. Now, while this is the 'rule', the rule may be relaxed as long as it doesn't become
a problem. But if it becomes a problem in the sole discretion of
the owners, then we reserve the right to enforce the rule. So far this has never
been a problem.
- No overnight guests without owner permission.
A "quiet" house. While this doesn't mean there will be no noise, the point is -
we want likeminded tenants. This is a house for study. There will be an 11:00pm to
8:00am "no loud noises", but during the rest of the day we request you keep music
and noise to a reasonable level for the enjoyment of all living here. There can
be some relaxation of this on Friday and Saturday nights, we'll discuss with tenants.
There is a TV for shared use - but we don't provide cable or satellite. The reason
is to help remove distractions for students. However, if you must have it and are
willing to pay for it, we will permit it.
No electric heaters, hot tubs, air-conditioners (other than the one the house has)
or other "large load" devices are permitted. (Since the utilities are included in
Please turn off your computers and other power appliances while you are not using
them - overnight especially.
The Main (middle) entrance to the University of Lethbridge, that is, the entrance that is
closest to the new Gym, Climbing wall etc.., is just one block, away. If you were
to park in parts of the North West parking lot - you'd have to walk FARTHER to get
to the buildings (Students Union, Library, etc..,) than you have to walk from this
location! Now, having said that, if you pay for the parking in the
lots beside the new Gym, in that case you are closer than this property. But by
the time you got in your car, drove, found a parking spot, parked, locked your car, you would only save a few seconds! So - you save your money instead.
The Christian and Missionary Alliance Church is 2 blocks North - by the North entrance
to the University of Lethbridge
- There is shopping (grocery etc..,) a few blocks away.
- Pizza, Restuarant food, movie gallery, TD, Shoppers Drug mart 2 blocks away.
Class 1 (watered, mowed, maintained) city park is only 1 step from the property
(to the West). Great place to study on nice days.
The Nicholas Sheran Lake and park is only 4 blocks away. (This is also
a Class 1 city park - look on a map - you are right next to it!)
You are within a block of the Lethbridge Parks and Pathway system. For details,
Bus Route #12 is just a few houses away (South) but it also goes into the University
of Lethbridge bus loop (as do a couple other bus routes.) So, if you don't have
a car, you can take the bus anywhere quite easily. For details, see the Lethbridge
Other features within a couple blocks: Nicolas Sheran Ice Centre, Nicholas Sheran
Leisure Centre Pool. For more information,

Like many, we've been hit by scammers, but we've
learned to adapt.
Here's some info I put together on Renter and Rental scams if you are interested:
. If you are
renter - it is worth looking at the rental scam one for your own protection. If you are curious, or you
are renting out yourself, the renter scam is worth a couple minutes of your time
to protect yourself. I offer this in hopes it will help protect a few people.
