paige and grant's apartment is wonderful. i feel incredibly lucky to have found it, and would be thrilled at the chance to stay there again. it is located in a very convenient neighborhood with free parking, and was pretty easy to find. the apartment itself is very modern in design and is incredibly cozy. there is an alarm and it felt very safe. my friend and i often mentioned that we kind of wanted to just stay inside instead of getting out to explore.
i would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment. it was truly fantastic and a highlight of our vacation.
The apartment was perfect. Absolutely immaculate with everything you could need.
Paige and grant were perfect hosts, even leaving a hand drawn map of all their favourite local spots.
I wouldn't hesitate in booking this place again.
Beautiful apartment, bathtub was a great asset. Cool upcoming neighbourhood. The wilder snail is awesome and just steps away. Most other things are a short bus ride away. Great mountain views!
Our stay at Paige and Grant's basement suite was short but sweet. The suite itself was beautiful. We visited in Winter and while it was cold outside, the heated floors make the place warm and comforting. As hosts, Paige and Grant are lovely. They're both super friendly, easy to communicate with and willing to help wherever they can. Paige's hand-drawn map was really useful and features almost everything you need for a great stay. It's walking distance to most things, including bars. restaurants and Rogers Arena. Don't be put off by East Hastings. Grant gave us a rundown of the area, and everyone we met (regardless of their demographic) was friendly. We felt completely safe. If you avoid the entire area you'll miss a heap of nice things.
All in all we had a great stay. Bonus points for the bathtub.
The place is beautiful! Comfortable beds and fully furnished with all your needs!
We had a wonderful time staying in this suite! Paige & Grant were great - recommended a few pizza places nearby that did delivery as we were quite exhausted when we arrived. The neighbourhood map and local "hot spot" recommendations were also greatly appreciated - the Wilder Snail DOES have the most awesome salted chocolate chip cookies and a super friendly vibe. Neighbourhood is really funky and close to everything! The suite had everything we needed - even coffee (which was also appreciated). Felt totally safe and comfortable for our entire visit and would definitely stay here again! Parking can be a little tricky if you're not so hot at parallel parking but practice makes perfect! Thanks for a great first experience with Air BnB!
We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this place! Paige and Grant were excellent hosts and the place was in a great location. The place was cozy, clean, spacious, and quiet. Paige and Grant have created this place with much attention to detail and it truly has everything you could need in order to feel right at home. The list of neighbourhood places to visit was great and came in handy on multiple occasions! We would definitely stay here again if our travels bring us back to Vancouver.
Grant and I met ten years ago when we were both young tree planters. We moved to Vancouver 8 years ago and fell in love with Strathcona. I am a carpenter and Grant is a photographer. We have travelled all over the world, both together and apart and so know the value of a great place to stay. We are excited to now be able to host other travellers and can't wait for you to experience this beautiful city.
