This place was awesome! It was very cozy and clean. The location was perfect. The only downside is that it's situated across the street from the train station so it can get very noisy, especially at night when you are trying to sleep. I suggest bringing ear plugs with you.
Jimmy was a very nice host. We never met in person but he was very quick to respond to my questions. I'd recommend this place if you are looking for an affordable lodging during your stay in Vancouver.
Jimmy's apartment had a perfect location just in front of Joyce Skytrain Station. The apartment was nice and clean and had good wifi internet. Jimmy was very nice, he welcome us when we arrived and explained everything we needed to know about the house. I would highly recommend staying at Jimmy's apartment when visiting Vancouver.
I've only met Jimmy for a short time, but I can say he's a friendly and easy going guy. There was no pressure of when to check in or when to check out, and communication was easy. The apartment was comfortable, had everything we needed, and it was in a convenient spot for our stay. It can get a bit hot(maybe because of the warmer season) and is dry(for us), but there are ways around it and is not a big deal. With this reasonable price and convenient location, definitely would stay again!
I really don’t like leaving reviews like this because I really like traveling and getting along with the tenants but I won’t lie about my experience in this apartment. Even though Jimmy was very kind and helpful through all the emails we’ve exchanged, when i arrived at the apartment i felt a huge disappointment.
The place was DIRTY, veeeery dirty. There were stains on the floor and so much dust, hairs and crumbs all over the place that it looked like it wasn’t cleaned at all since the last traveler. In the bathroom there was a rug so dirty that I had to take it off and I found gloves under the rug. the trash can was full of garbage from other people, how disgusting is finding someone else’s used toilet paper. The tub was dirty with hairs and there were so many shampoo bottles that there was no room for my stuff, and most of those bottles were kind of empty.
The kitchen was poorly equipped, (there was only one knife, the pots and other stuff were ok) I found so much food in the fridge (and not the usual salt, pepper, coffee, etc) there was gummy bears, half eaten chocolates, milk, half drink juice, etc. and I think that is gross. I also found a super dirty pan in the oven that was very oily and disgusting. The kitchen counter was very messy and covered in crumbs.
The balcony door wouldn’t close so we called jimmy and he confirmed that it wasn’t possible to close that door, but the apt. is in the 11th floor so I wasn’t worried about that, but is a warning.
I spent most part of the afternoon cleaning the place, and that is not nice considering the fact that there is a “cleaning” fee that we all pay for when we rent the apartment. I told jimmy my concerns and he apologized very kindly and he offered a full refund if I wanted to go to another place, but I decided to stay because I didn’t wanna look for another place and go through all that stress.
The apt is very well located and I loved the security in the building (they have this special key that only allows you to go to your apt floor) the neighbors are very quiet and polite, I didn’t hear any noises from neighbors but the sky train can be a little annoying the first two nights, but then you just get used to it.
If you can’t handle light while you sleep I would recommend you to bring something to cover your eyes because the curtains in the apt can’t stop the super bright sun in the mornings, the apt gets very hot because of this reason too.
Other than the dirtiness, the place was perfect and Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
Jimmy has offered to meet us or show up within 20 min if we run into any problems. We only had minor annoyances with TV which we don't absolutely need except once per day for late news before bed time.
Jimmy was an excellent host. Our flight arrived at 9:00 am and he let us check in right when we arrived. The apartment was very comfortable - no complaints at all. While the apartment isn't in the downtown core, it was a very convenient location. Aside from our route from the airport, we didn't even have transfer lines on the sky train. The station is right across the street and everything was easily accessible from the Millenium line.
