I enjoyed my visit to Vancouver very much. I stayed ten nights and mostly slept well, though I wished the bed was higher (on box springs or something) since I am not a young man. Serge and Brigitte were friendly hosts, and everything was clean. Serge was especially a fountain of information.
The downstairs living room was usually empty, so when I wanted to stay in during the evening it was nice for reading. I was away most of the daytime seeing the sights of Vancouver, but I liked coming back to the house. I had many meals on Commercial Drive, a five-minute walk away.
Thank you, both of you.
Nous avons été accueillis avec délicatesse et amabilité. La description de l'endroit était conforme à nos attentes, l'environnement très calme et la ville était très facilement accessible par transport en commun. Nous y avons vécu un très beau séjour. Merci à nos hôtes!

We stayed with Brigitte for 3 days during the height of a beautiful summer in Vancouver. The place was very clean and tidy. We could tell there was extra effort put in to make our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible (ex. kind notes throughout the house, guidebooks of the area in our room, etc...).
The location was perfect for us as it was very close to Commercial Drive and a short drive to downtown. We were able to sample some of the best restaurants right across Vancouver with ease. We would definitely stay here again!
We loved our stay with Brigitte. The room was just like the pictures. The room and bathroom were very clean! The location was awesome. It was very easy to jump on the skytrain and go downtown. You're minutes away from Starbucks, which was awesome. There were a lot of restaurants along Commercial drive and everyone we told where we were staying had mentioned it was a great location. We fell in love with Vancouver and will definitely be back for new adventures. All in all, there were a lot of little touches from Brigitte that made us feel welcome in her home. She would leave us notes and our room door had our names! We will definitely stay with Brigitte if she'll have us back again! :)
It was a very nice place to stay!!!
We were friendly welcome by Brigitte and Serge and felt absolutly comfortable at their cosy place.
Thanks a lot for a good time in Vancouver
Serge & Brigitte are excellent hosts! They're extremely nice and very helpful. Their house is beautiful and they have a ton of material that will help you explore Vancouver right in your room.
Location couldn't be better, too. You're 5 minutes away from the Drive and buses and 10 minutes away from the Skytrain. It's (website hidden): When they say how hot it was, they just went and got a new fan for us! Amazing =D
We really enjoyed our stay here. The hosts were pretty busy so were not around very much, but they made sure to leave behind cards and instructions that made our stay very comfortable, and we felt welcomed to contact them for any questions. The place was very clean and it was close to Commercial Drive, which had a lot of eateries and shops, and was very close to public transportation. Thank you guys for making our first time in Canada so wonderful!

About the Host, Serge & Brigitte
Serge and I immigrated from Belgium to Vancouver more than 15 years ago. We love Canada and especially Vancouver.
It's a great city! You have the ocean, the mountains and the downtown all around you. It's magic ....
You have to come and visit Vancouver to believe it.
People are really friendly, less stressed than in Europe, and if you like the outdoors, it's the best place to be.
We like to share our experience with travellers, and give them all the tips they will need to enjoy their stay.
During the winter, we like Xcountry skiing, downhill skiing and hiking
During the summer, we like windsurfing, swimming and hiking, and meeting friends all year round.
Please tell us a bit about yourself when contacting me, it makes the transaction a lot more pleasant. :)
