  • Excellent location and a real nice neighborhood. 3 nice large bedrooms.

  • Cindy our host was excellent, she responded to questions via email promptly and accurately. The apartment was as advertised, cute, very clean and well appointed. The location was even better than we expected. Our visit to Vancouver was great and we would love to return again and would definitely try to use Cindy's apartment.
    Thank you Cindy for sharing your home!

  • Cindy and her husband Joe were great hosts. They came by to check on the dryer right after they landed home from their vacation. They attended all our questions and helped to fix all the little things.
    The house is very cute and clean, just like the pictures. The 3 rooms are larger than expected. Works really well for the 5 of us. We enjoy the house as much as the neighborhood, which is unbeatable. Can walk to anything we need. Love it. Awesome Yaletown neighborhood. The secured parking is a plus.
    The condo and the location is one of the highlights of our Vancouver visit. If we will visit again will definitely come back to this place.

  • Our experience with Cindy was excellent. The listing was exactly as expected, with 2 full bathrooms, underground parking for one car, three bedrooms suitable for 6 people and an extra sofa/futon suitable for 1. To accommodate all 7 of us comfortably, she even went to the extra effort of buying a spare single mattress! There is an ensuite washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge, gas stove, etc.

    Cindy was very organized and had prepared a detailed list of instructions for us, describing how to use the TV, Wifi, nearby attractions, how to dispose of trash, etc.. The neighbourhood surrounding Richards Street in springtime was absolutely teeming with activity, is very safe and family-friendly, with nearby amenities including restaurants, grocery stores (Marketplace IGA is a great asset, and is open 24 hrs) and public transport, good neighbours, lots of greenery, and just a stone's throw from many popular attractions.

  • We had a fantastic time staying at Cindy’s place. It was all of our first times using AirBnB. And not only was the place perfect for us, but all of the “business” parts flowed effortlessly!

    Her suggested driving directions were direct and easy to execute. The key pick up took mere minutes, and just like that, we were all parked, unpacked and ready to enjoy the city. Cindy was also kind enough to provide a printed welcome packet that included all the necessary apartment information—internet passcode, parking info, key instructions, tv instructions, etc—as well as additional notes on notable restaurants, markets, and pubs worth checking out that were within walking distance—with a map to reference! FYI, The Flying Pig was definitely our fav out of the ones we were able to try.

    Location is pretty terrific, especially for first timers to the city. For those who haven’t experienced Vancouver, it can be deceptively sprawled out. But the flat is right in the heart of downtown. It’s easily within walking distance of Gastown, Yaletown, Stanley Park, Chinatown,The Olympic Waterfront, and the Vancouver Art Gallery. If you’re taking the walking tour from Tour Guys(which I highly recommend), it’s literally a 9 minute walk to the meet up point. And if you’re not big on walking, you can easily rent a bike or take public transport anywhere of interest.

    The place was super clean and tidy, and exactly as advertised from the AirBnB page. The kitchen was in great working order and was even stocked with some goodies for cooking that one takes for granted when travelling—coffee, spices, sugar, etc. As Granville Mkt is a wondrous place to experience and hit up for fresh produce/meat, it was a great plus to have an ample kitchen to cook it up in!

    One note of caution. While the flat easily accommodated the five of us, the bedrooms are limited to three. So, if you’re traveling with folks who may be a little high maintenance in the sharing bed/sleeping on fold out couch/beds, you may want to keep that in mind. That being said, the beds are comfortable and bathrooms are super clean, updated, and stocked with towels.

    I can’t comment on response time of the owner on handling issues, because we didn’t run into any during our 3 night stay! But in light of how well everything was prepped, I’m fully confident she would’ve handled any problems timely and courteously.

  • Six of us stayed at Cindy's place as a base to check out colleges for our three boys and tour the Vancouver area. The place is very comfortable and well-appointed. It includes a parking garage - a big plus for downtown Vancouver. It is located in a great area, with easy walking access to restaurants, pubs, and nightlife. Cindy is incredibly helpful and accommodating.

  • I stayed in Cindy's place in Yaletown/Vancouver with 4 friends for one week in April 2014. This is a great location for seeing Vancouver and the townhouse itself is very comfortable for 4-6 people. Cindy was very responsive to all our requests. The only negative was the internet, which we had to reset multiple times over the week for it to function, although we were able to stream a movie without any delays or pauses so it worked great when it was working.

  • I staid at Cindy's place with two friends. It was a great experience! The apartment is perfectly located, close to great restaurants and nightlife, and had everything we needed. All three rooms were approximately equal in size, with good quality beds/bedding, and the fireplace in the living room was a nice addition. Everything worked well with the Internet. The parking situation was a bit confusing, but Cindy left excellent instructions, making the whole process a breeze.

    Thanks again Cindy!
