The Origins of Canmore Stays

Our Story

It was 2015 and Alberta’s economic downturn was just beginning when Svet and Tina Pargov lost their long-term tenant. Saddled with an empty home in downtown Calgary, they decided to try listing it on Airbnb in hopes of covering some of their fixed expenses. They realized that with the right systems in place and with the right marketing strategies, they could help other struggling property owners improve their occupancy rates. Canmore Stays was born. 

Svet and Tina’s entrepreneurial drive and industry experience have made them the go-to property management company for vacation rentals.

Why We Do it

Svet and Tina built Canmore Stays on the belief that time is precious. It’s the one commodity we never get back and only have a finite amount of. They want to help investors create space to enjoy their lives, make memories with their families and pursue hobbies they’re passionate about. 

As investors themselves, parents and busy entrepreneurs, they know first-hand how important it is to be present. They look forward to raising Emilia as a future CEO who will expand S&T Properties into a global solution for homeowners, investors and vacation-seekers.
