This place is fantastic - quiet and clean, a beautiful, bright space 2 blocks from Commercial Drive. Kriszta is welcoming and generous, providing fresh fruit and milk, cereal and more for breakfast. It's a space separate from the main house, so it feels like a little getaway - an oasis in the big city. I'll stay again for sure!
Kriszta was a thoughtful and friendly host, and my friend and I had a great weekend stay at her studio. Everything was clean, charming, and cozy. The studio is tucked away in Kriszta's backyard next the garden and was a peaceful place to return to each night. I'd definitely stay here again.
I stayed at Kriszta's for a night; the location is prime, studio place has a clean, warm, comfortable and inviting feel to it. Service with a smile. I would definitely stay there again.
I had a very nice 3-night stay at Kriszta's studio. Everything is as described, the hosts are generous and welcoming, and the location just off Commercial Drive is great. I'd happily stay here again.
What a charming studio she has created! It was warm and inviting, with her art on the walls, and bananas and cereal for us to enjoy. We were returning visitors so did not have much need for interaction with our host. However she had many maps, books and brochures on the table to peruse. It was perfect for our trip being within walking distance of the Drive, and our daughter's house! A definite return visit is in order!
We had a wonderful stay in Kriszta's studio/cottage. She was attentive to our needs and gave us lots of useful information about Vancouver and the neighborhood that helped us make the most of or trip. The Commercial drive neighborhood (where she is located) is also one of the more interesting (to us) areas of Vancouver.
Kriszta went out of her way to help us with our travel - we arrived at 1am in the morning and left at 6am several days later. She helped us make taxi reservations and made it a very pleasant experience overall. We would heartily recommend her studio for anyone visiting Vancouver.
Our stay was wonderful. Kriszta was a great host. We were concerned about being warm enough because it was one of the coldest nights of the year, so we asked for extra blankets, which she provided. However, they were probably not necessary as the suite stayed comfortably warm despite the freezing temperatures outside. The suite was clean and quiet and we enjoyed the breakfast. We would be happy to stay there again.
Our stay at Kriszta's studio was a wonderful choice overall. It was centrally located, clean and comfortable which allowed us to explore Vancouver care-free. The inclusion of a bathroom, kitchenette and central heat in the unit itself was great. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to other travellers.
Kriszta’s studio is a magical little haven. So comfortable my partner and I could enjoy half our day kicking back in bed, listening to her small collection of wonderful tunes while basking in the natural sunlight through the skylit windows. Krizsta is a passionate and extremely positive Artist, she accommodated us on very short notice and was easy to contact during the stay. The location is perfect for short commute to handfuls of wonderful eats/treats. The all organic breakfast & coffee put the cherry on our day. Highly recommended, we planned on staying only one night but extended it to three. Will stay again our next stop through, Thanks Kriszta!
Kriszta's studio was a perfect place for our overnight stay in Vancouver. Clean and cute. It was in a nice neighborhood of older homes and only 2 blocks from Commercial Drive's shops, restaurants and pubs.
