I was very impressed with Kristina's apartment. From the minute we walked inside we felt welcome and at home. She even went out of her way to accommodate our arrival schedule which we really appreciated. Kristina's place was immaculate and spacious yet warm, cozy, very comfortable and inviting. The neighborhood is one of my favorites in Vancouver and her street is attractive, safe, quiet and restful. Kristina is a kind and gracious host and I highly recommend her apartment to anyone. We loved staying there.
Kristina provided excellent service including a handbook of information and places to see around the neighborhood. She checked in several times before our trip to make sure we had no further questions. She was available by phone and email if we had any needs during our stay. The unit was very clean and had all the essentials needed for a comfortable stay. The apartment was on a lovely quiet street and there was very good parking nearby. Shops and coffee houses etc was in walking distance.
Even though we didn't meet in person, Kristina was an excellent host. The apartment was a quiet refuge after a day of activities in the city. The beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and inviting. It was really nice to have a full kitchen to make breakfast in each morning. This is a basement apartment, so you can hear the occupants of the upstairs apt. walking around, but it really wasn't a problem for us.
We used public transportation and there is a sky train station fairly nearby at Commercial and Broadway. I was with my mother who is in her 70's and the trek back up the hill at the end of the day was a bit much for her, so we ended up taking cabs home at the end of the day.
So, if you are looking for a quiet place to stay while in the city of Vancouver, then this is the place for you.
Had lovely stay at Kristina's apartment. Very quiet neighbourhood with easy access to bus (4 mins to stop) to downtown (15 mins). Very spacious and well-equipped (although kitchen equipment could do with update, ie. mugs, bowls, saucepans in a bit of a sorry state). Secure combination lock on door so no concern re losing keys. Clean and comfortable.
Kristina's place was an excellent find and very well located to get around and explore one of my favorite parts of Vancouver. It was spotless, clean and pretty much exactly as described in her listing. We didn't actually meet Kristina, but enjoyed the freedom to come and go as we pleased, uninterrupted and undisturbed. I'd be happy to stay again.
Did not meet host as she was away when we arrived.
Neighbourhood was very nice and was convenient for visiting relatives.
Only thing missing was an electric kettle which as tea drinkers we would have found beneficial.
Emailing of change of entry arrangements a few days before we arrived was a potential complication as we were already in CAnada without
The clothes washing facilities were easy to use and we're much needed.
All in all the accommodation met our needs very well.
Wifi access was good.
Sorry you missed the kettle, it is under the microwave where the toaster is, I will pull it forward for the next guest. As for emailing entry information, 4 days ahead is when Aribnb sends the host an email to be in touch with guests, I will ensure that my future guests have internet access to receive the information. Glad it wasn't an issue for you this time. Thanks so much for the feedback Paul!
