Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The home was in a quiet, pretty nice neighborhood. Grocery store, restaurants, bank, and pharmacy near by and convenient when needed. The house was clean, spacious and new looking. We enjoyed our stay very much. Pretty much everything we needed was provided. Particularly was surprised to see how well stocked the refrigerator was to accommodate all sixteen of us for breakfast. Would stay there again if in the area again.

  • Stevens place is big and clean. This is my first airbnb experience and it did not disappoint! If you have a group of 6 or more, this place will be great as u will have lots of space. There were plenty for breakfast also which we couldnt finish after 4 Nights. We can drive and reach any restaurants, shopping mall in 10 minutes drive, this is surprised me as its even more convenient then when we were in Hong Kong.

  • The house was all it was presented to be in the listing. Spacious, well appointed, located in a pleasant neighborhood. Steven, our host, provided plenty of breakfast items in the fridge. Very happy we chose to stay in Richmond rather than Vancouver.

  • We stayed here for one week for a family vacation with 7 family members. The house was very nice and clean. The upstairs had 4 bedrooms - each with their own bathroom. Downstairs there was a kitchen, living room, dining room, den and a bathroom.

    Everyone slept well - the beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet.

    It is about 5 minute walk to Garden City Park - a very nice park for walking or playing Frisbee as my kids did.

    The wireless connection was also useful for our smartphones and computers.

    It is about a 30 minute drive to downtown Vancouver. There is also a light rail station about 2 km away which you can take downtown - though I was not sure where to park for this. It takes about 25 minutes to walk to the light rail station.

    The negatives: there was only one sofa and no coffee table in the family room and the living room was empty. The owner provided some folding chairs - but it was not comfortable and relaxing for everyone to sit together in the evening in the family room. Also my wife says the kitchen did not have enough different size pots and pans for cooking.

    All in all - it is a very nice house and I would recommend it to a larger group if you have a car.

  • The house was great & exactly how it is explained. Also Steven was a good host provided us breakfast and any accommodations we needed.

  • We stayed at Steven's house for 4 days. Steven was very helpful for everything and kindly prepared enough food for the breakfast. We had a great stay. The house was very spacious and beautiful. Highly recommend for everyone.

  • My extended family and I, a total of 10 adults and 3 children, stayed at Steven's house for a week and had a wonderful experience! The house is large, beautiful, and very very clean. Steven had stocked the fridge with plenty of food for breakfast, more than we could eat! The house is in a great neighbourhood, close to the airport and maybe a 20 minute drive to downtown Vancouver. Booking with Steven was very easy; he was always quick to answer questions and was kind enough to accommodate some of my family who were arriving earlier than scheduled. No one in my family had any complaints, and we would definitely stay there again!

  • My family stayed at this gorgeous house for 5 nights and this property is really awesome. Steven is a great host with nice and friendly response and definitely provided more than we needed during the stay. The house is sufficient to accommodate all 7 adults and 2 kids, and all the facilities are in great condition. The towels and bed linings are clean. The property location is convenient with many malls and restaurants nearby. It is a great experience to stay there and I highly recommend this house to anyone who is searching for a comfortable and quiet stay in Richmond.

  • Steven is a great guy. We had to find a new place quickly because the first place we checked into was sub-standard for us. Steven was not only quick in his response to our request but very friendly. His house was beautiful and exactly as described. In addition to his house being beautiful, Steven went over and beyond the call of duty as a host. We rented this as just a place for a trip but Steven made it much more than that. When we first arrived Steven called to make sure that we got in ok. He told us about a couple bottles of wine he left for us. He then asked what we wanted for breakfast. We replied with bacon, eggs, toast, and chocolate milk. Steven then brought over all of these things, and brought enough for 5 guys for 4 morning s. It doesn't get any better than this. We will definitely be using this as our place to stay in the Vancouver area when we go back. Thanks again Steven!

  • Great vacation rental, fabulous stay, and Steven was really wonderful. The house was beautiful, spacious, and perfect accommodations for our family gathering, Aug. 2013. There were 7 of us - 3 couples and our elderly mother. The house was very comfortable, nicely appointed, and very clean. Each couple had their own bedroom and their own bath. This was much better than getting 4 hotel rooms. We went out and about and then had a great place to come home to and cook together if we wanted. There were two kitchens, which was unique - one is a "wok kitchen". If you're planning to cook gourmet meals, I'd check with Steven on cooking equipment and bring anything special you need with you because the kitchen just has a few a couple pots, couple pans - enough for simple meal prep. The location was quiet, residential with parks nearby and easy to walk to. It was August and warm, and it was nice to see plenty of people out strolling in the evenings. It felt safe. Richmond is just south of Vancouver, pretty close to everything. The house has an adjoining rental unit which we didn't realize was there until the tenants came home late at night - they were a little noisy. Other than that, we co-existed and didn't have any problems. There was plenty of privacy and shared off-street parking. The only complaint I would have is, there was a surveillance camera in the upstairs hallway (and I don't know where else) that made us uncomfortable and wonder... It's one thing to have security in your own home, it's another to know someone else is watching you. It didn't look like cameras were anywhere else than that one spot in the hallway so we let it go. Other than that, Steven was easy to work with, was very responsive and accommodating. He kindly filled the fridge with breakfasts foods and special goodies tailored to our tastes. Everyone enjoyed our stay in this lovely house in the beautiful Vancouver area - and a month later, they're still talking about it. Thank you, Steven!

I've traveled with family a lot, we know what the guest needs when traveling.

Wash cloth: A modern new washing machine and dryer, detergent free; Miss home? A phone with free call to Canada, and cheaper charge to many countries; Parking space: 3 in yard, and 3 infront of yard for free, Our thinking is: to let guests feel like home. (Do not get the difficulties when we traveled even stay in 5 star hotels). Relax and have a nice holiday, it's beyond a "bed", better than Hotel, We provide VALUE to Valuable guest.
