Interaction with Guests
I respect guest's privacy but always try and say hi and check in if guests have any questions or need some local knowledge. The odd free wine tasting is offered to guest who would enjoy that. I own a winery and make my beautiful BC Wine products available to guests at winery direct prices.
Quiet, nice people, lots of great amenities nearby, very central location
5 minute walk to bus stop and quick access to Canada Line rapid transit to airport and downtown
Other Things to Note
I am a Winemaker and Brewmaster and super keen foodie, so have lots of good advice to offer about Vancouver's amazing food and drink scene. I know lots of sweet spots and insider deals.
be yourselves, communicate what you need to have a nice stay
The description of the accommodation was accurate and the neighbourhood very safe. Had all the basics you would need for a short stay, apart from access to laundry facilities.on the street parking was not a problem. Liked having access to tv and Netflix. Not a lot of cupboard/ storage space in bedroom so not the place for you if you have lots of luggage.
Mark was great to work with and provided a very welcoming environment, meeting us at the door despite our late arrival and generously sharing some of his wine made on site. Mark accommodated us additionally by allowing us to store our luggage in the suite after the checkout time, which really helped since we were traveling by public transit. All of the linens (sheets, towels, etc.) were really high quality and the suite was clean and the perfect size for the two of us. We really enjoyed our time at Main Street Vineyard and would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, well-kept space with plenty of amenities and a gracious, organized host.
The neighbourhood was a residential one, with a great cafe just steps from the house. Mark arranged for us to leave our bags early, and also after check out, as our flight times were early arrival and late departure. The place was super clean, had basic cooking supplies, and the hot tub was a great bonus. Mark was friendly and helpful. Note: Go to Main street for supplies and restaurants, as Fraser is limited. Do go to the Shoppers Drug on Fraser/29th for daily transit passes.
Excellent, clean and comfortable suite. Close and convenient to very good cafe (corner of the street St Georges and 28 E Age. Mark very friendly and helpful to work weary travellers (tried getting into garage instead of suite.....), gave us a bottle of wine when we arrived. What more could you ask for? Hot tub was great and neighbourhood was very pleasant. Would thoroughly recommend this place.
We had a wonderful time. Mark's place was the perfect getaway from the busy city, but close to everything. The neighborhood was nice and quite too. He was very attentive to anything we needed or if the place needed anything. He even provided a wonderful hard cider. He is very passionate about his wine and beers. I highly recommend the Howling Moon brand if you are into hard ciders.
Nice Apartment. Clean and cosy. We enjoyed our stay in the well equipped flat.
