Leavetown was founded in 2008 in Canmore, Alberta, a friendly mountain town in the Canadian Rockies.
Having just relocated to Canada from England, I was on a mission to fully explore my new home, and discover the best local experiences and adventures.
I soon realized that I wanted to share my home away from home with others and started marketing local homes as holiday rentals to guests.
My idea was to personalise and simplify the holiday / vacation home booking process, making it easy and accessible to everyone. Being a serial entrepreneur and having travelled extensively over the years I could see what property rental booking agencies were missing: personality! … and so Leavetown was born!
