Kriszta is a very helpful person. The great studio is in a nice nighboorhood with a lot of restaurants and bars. Parking in front of the house (on the street) is no problem. Thank you Kriszta for the good breakfast.
It is a lovely place, everything was clean and Kristza is very helpful, thank you Kristza!
Kriszta's place was fabulous, just as described, lovely studio in a garden setting, fully equipped, with complimentary breakfast foods (including organic milk and coffee beans), super-comfy bed, great hot shower, CD player and son0me good CDs to listen to, all in a great neighbourhood full of restaurants and bars. Furthermore she was incredibly flexible with check-in, and I was able to settle in without waiting after an early flight arrival as her previous guest had left early and the flat had been promptly cleaned. Kriszta also gave me great suggestions about local places to shop nad have coffee.
My boyfriend and I went to Vancouver for the World Cup and stayed at Kriszta's studio. It was located right off The Drive. It was so easy to walk to all the shops, restaurants and any public transportation. Such an awesome location and a really cute neighborhood.
We had a wonderful time in Vancouver. Kriszta was a wonderful hostess and the apartment was very nice.
Fresh fruit, coffee, tea along with other refreshments. The neighborhood was alot of fun. Just a short walk to nice shops, bars and everything you would need. I would highly recommend staying at Krisztas for a real flavor of local life in Vancouver
Kriszta's artist suite was clean, well-stocked and lovely to stay in. Location was great, right near many restaurants and coffee shops. Kriszta did everything she could to make our stay comfortable and easy.
Kriszta's studio was a wonderful place to stay. Kriszta was charming attentive and concerned that we would enjoy our stay and that we would have everything we needed. She very thoughtfully provided organic coffee and organic milk and other small items, fruit etc. The studio was a wonderful place to stay, clean, neat, tidy and well appointed. There was a cafe style table and chairs on a private patio where we enjoyed morning coffee and evening wine.
The studio is very centrally located in a quite neighbourhood on tree lined streets only minutes from "the Drive" Vancouver's ideal spot with cafes, restaurants and shops. The sky train is only about a 15 min walk providing easy access to all of Vancouver. Parking was easy, we left our car and took mass transit.
We were sorry to leave and hope to be able to stay in this perfect spot the next time we visit Vancouver.

About the Host, Kriszta
I am a Vancouver artist showing my work locally and internationally. I also write fiction and translate academic books and articles. I love to listen to the blues, jazz and world music. My husband and I enjoy the company of a culturally diverse group of friends and excited to open our house to new ones. As my motto, I like to combine the pessimism of the intellect with the optimism of the will, to paraphrase Gramsci.
