Interaction with Guests
We are a busy family of 5 (3 kids ages 4,6,8) and we live right above the suite. We normally try to meet our guests during arrival to ensure you're comfortable, however, we are accessible anytime for questions or if any issues arise. We respect your privacy and space.
We have lived in the area for over 30 years. We love its community feel and energy. You'll find all walks of life on The Drive - the original Italian immigrants having their espressos, aspiring artists showcasing their masterpieces on the sidewalks, hipsters, young families, old families and many independent business owners.
1/2 block to bus stop and 4 blocks to Skytrain to take you downtown Vancouver or Burnaby in 7 minutes.

Most of the suite's ceilings reach 7'-8', there are a couple of beams (living room/hallway) that dip under 6'. Some taller visitors may not be comfortable.
No smoking on premises. Visitors are encouraged! Small dogs are welcome.We're cool if you're cool!
We really enjoyed our stay at Divina and Viv. They were welcoming and we felt like family! The suite was implacable and exactly like the picture. The neighbourhood is what we needed with our 4 years old grandson, next to a park. Thanks again Divina and Viv!
Great place to stay very near the Drive. Comfortable and clean with all we needed for our stay. Entrance on the side of the house and you step down when entering the unit. It was just two of us so there was plenty of room. Imagine it would be fine for a small family as well. Thanks, we'd go back.
Stayed here in Feb 2015, and had a lovely stay! Divina and Viv had absolutely everything we needed there. Way more than "the basics"! We had every kitchen utensil we needed, including wine glasses, and lots of fresh towels and linens. Slept in the room with the colourful curtains and wooden bed frame and the bed was very comfortable. Their welcome note made it very easy to navigate the suite and the neighbourhood. It was a great location. They replied to all of my requests in a very timely manner. Absolutely great experience, I would recommend them to anyone going to Vancouver! Thank you for the great stay, Divina and Viv :)
We had a great stay at Divina and Viv's suite. The location was perfect for us. There was always a parking spot on the street and once we parked our car it stayed there for the whole time as we walked everywhere. The suite was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen worked great for us (despite the fact that there were so many places to eat out just down the road). And though we never saw them, we knew the hosts were available. It worked great for us. I highly recommend.
This was definitely a cozy little suite on the drive. Very quiet and equipped with everything one needs. Div and Viviana were quiet and kept to themselves but there if we needed anything. Their suite was located in a great area, close to parks and restaurants. Enjoyed our stay very much
We stayed at Divina and Viv's for one week in December 2014 and had a wonderful time at their home. They were both very accommodating, quick to respond to any inquiries, and a very welcoming host. We have stayed in multiple AirBNB listings and we must say this was top notch ! The suite is spacious, very clean, well equipped, and very comfortable. They are centrally located just off Commercial Drive and close to Transit. Super location ! Next time we are in town we will definitely be giving Divina and Viv a call !
Our hosts contacted us and welcomed us shortly after we booked our stay on airbnb and then 1 week before our arrival date. They gave us all the necessary directions to get to their suite and provided further contact information in case we needed to contact them at any time. The suite was clean and cheerful and so close to Commercial Drive -a great place to stay while in Vancouver. We had everything we needed. Divina and Viv were a very nice and welcoming family! Thank you!
We are a busy family of 5 with 3 kids ages 8,6 and 4. The Drive has been our home for over 30 years and we are lucky enough to raise our own children here. The neighbourhood is ideal for families with lots of parks nearby, community centres, fresh/organic food markets, a variety of restaurants and coffee shops! We love entertaining as we have a large extended family and lots of close friends. We love warm destinations as Vancouver doesn't provide us with sun/heat for most of the year. We're pretty easy going hosts and we're open-minded...just don't disrespect!
