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 Main Street Vineyard was just what we were looking for in our stay in Vancouver. Rooms were clean and comfortable. It was a lovely residential area close to shops and restaurants. Mark was helpful and welcoming. We had the opportunity to taste some of his wine, which was an extra bonus! Would definitely choose to stay there again
The house was in a great location, very easily accessible to the city via public transport. The listing did match the description, however we did feel a bit cramped having 3 people in the listing. The kitchen was adequate size, however was a bit messy. The bed was very comfortable - certainly the highlight, the sleeper couch was good for a sleeper couch. The spa was a great addition to have after a day out.
The only let down was the plumbing in the bathroom. The bath water would not drain for hours, so we had to stand in dirty/slimy water to shower. There was also a small issue with the sink not working either.
We would recommend this place if less than 3 people and also if the plumbing is confirmed to be fixed.
Mark was very friendly and it was easy to check in.
Mark was very communicative and gave us excellent recommendations for local experiences and places to eat. The apartment was clean and comfy, we really enjoyed our stay there. We didn't get to meet Mark as he was away in Spain but he was very helpful and responsive via the AirBnb app, and even got a friend round to unlock his laundry room for us when wen wanted to do some washing. Vancouver was amazing!
I really enjoyed the location. Walking distance to my sister's place. Suite was clean and comfortable. Welcome package very helpful especially restaurants around the area. Overall, it would be a place I would come back to stay at in the future.
We stayed at Mark's place, the Main Street Vineyard for a few days during our visit to Vancouver. The suite is really nice and clean, close to bus routes and other restaurants. Mark was really helpful and supportive. He helped us fix the drainage problem quickly so we can enjoy our stay. We would definitely recommend the place to everyone.
Our time in Vancouver was outstanding. Our host, Mark welcomed us on our first night with a delicious dinner that he had extra of while dining with his friends, and we enjoyed some of his absolutely amazing red wine that he makes himself. You can also order it online! :) the space you stay in is so homey and is within walking of amazing restaurants and coffee shops. I highly recommend the Crepe place exactly one block to the right of his residence. Wow! So many perks with the sleeping arrangements complete with an extremely soft bed, huge shower head, a patio for breakfast, and a perfect little French press for your coffee fix. The place, the host and the city are amazing. I recommend you booking for sure.
Mark is a great host and the garden suite is as advertised - modern, very clean, and comfortable. For this price, traditional hotel accommodations in Vancouver don't come close to offering the value that you receive here with the kitchen, hot tub and patio. This is a really nice neighborhood as well - steps away from amenities.
