We had a very warm welcome by Barbara! She even provided some groceries! The apartment was super clean, fully equipped and located in a lovely neighborhood with good bus connections to the city.
Very friendly welcome from Barbara. There were several brochures in the apt that were helpful.
We had 3 days in Vancouver after a 10 day trip into the Rockies in an RV. Barbara and Dennis's apartment was just perfect for us- clean,cool, comfortable and well equipped. We had a very warm welcome from Dennis as Barbara was away for the week. We had been thoughtfully provided with milk, bread, eggs, juice and butter which was great. It was within a stone's throw of Main Street where there were buses to downtown, and lots of places to eat. We ate at 'Bob likes Thai Food' and had a great breakfast at 'Joe's Grill'.
We packed as much as we could into our 3 days- Orca watching, cycling in Stanley Park, Granville Island and a trip to Bowen Island
We would love to come back to Vancouver- and would definitely use this apartment again- Thanks Barbara and Dennis!
We had a great time renting this lovey apartment from Barbara and Dennis. It was very clean, comfortable and even prettier than the photos. Plus Hubert the dog was a very sweet addition too, he would sleep on the porch upstairs during the day and would come by as we were leaving to say hello! Main street is around the corner and offers a host of restaurants and nearby supermarkets if you decide to eat in. All in all, a great location and super comfy suite, we would definitely rent it again!
The apartment was perfect for our family, easy parking and very quiet street, but close to Main and Fraser both. Very well appointed, it even has laundry! Everything was Clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed just relaxing in the lovely garden yard.
This is a lovely apartment, very comfortable, well stocked. We were greeted with a smile, basic food, and good beds. Main Street is a block and a half away and includes restaurants and shops. That said, the apartment is located on a quiet side street. It's a great place to have a vacation stop.
Our stay in Vancouver was just great! We arrived to the residence and parking was readily available, as it was the entire duration of our stay (6 nights). There were 5 of us traveling, 2 adults and 3 kids ages 15, 13 and 11. For anyone with more than 2 kids, you know how difficult finding hotel rooms can be, and this was the perfect solution. There was everything we needed and we were in perfect proximity to Main street. There is a shoppers drug mart and td canada trust one block away, and although our hosts were kind enough to leave some eggs, bread and milk in our fridge, we either walked to breakfast every morning or had other plans. If you are a coffee lover like my son and husband, JJ bean and 49th parallel are within walking distance and if you are a tea snob like me, shaktea is about a 10 minute walk away. Very awesome!
The entire suite was spotless and i loved the fact that we had a washer/dryer because kids get everything dirty!!
Anyhow, to make a short story long, i would most definitely stay here again with my kids and it was a lovely experience. Thank you for your hospitality!
