The kozmikMansion - 4 your ShortTerm visits 2 CALGARY CANADA!
If you are soon to visit the city of Calgary....and are tired of staying at overpriced soul-less muzak filled hotels, motels which could double for sets for B grade horror films, stuffy B and B's that make your grandmother's place seem hip, and not to mention hostels with neo-hippies with BO that should be banned in a Chemical Warfare Treaty snoring above you in a bunk bed.....then consider a short term rental stay in the ''kozmik-MANSION OF Calgary'' - a hundred year old plus
river fronting mansion with an ever- evolving avante garde found object art surrealistic spin and which was described in the increasingly popular travel zine... Alternative Accomodations Always!...as
being 'a delight mix of crazed canadian POPart, avante eco-antique archaeology, and an irrelevant yet inspiring interior design...with a sprinkling of neo-gothic gloominess and giddiness alike!!'...
The holiday guide book Cool and Cheap in Canada applauded the kozmik-Mansion as '' an alwways avante art anomaly of an abode...gives the traveller a rare unique opportunity to be injected into the every day idiosyncracies of THE surreal and mostly live Canadians who live long term in the kozmik-mansion - as well as their friends who drop by the
mansion....the foreign visitor to Calgary also benefits immensely by being given those important nuggets of infomation such as to where to shop, eat, drink, visit and see, who to sleep with, etc - that makes, or breaks, a holiday or business trip...and often...the traveller will find him/her self being personally guided by one of the kozmikMansion's native Calgarians to enjoy the hard-to-find-for-foreign-travellers' spot and sights in and around Calgary.''......As the Rocky Mountain Lodging Guide remarked:
.'''The kozmik-Mansion in
Calgary...is surely a place where the ghost of Hunter S. Thompson would book for one day...........and stay for the rest of eternity!''!!!
