Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Brigitte, is a fantastic host. I recommend her place for a comfortable stay in Vancouver. Her place is at a very clean homely and at a very good location. There are no night curfews and such as well.

    Response from Serge & Brigitte:

    Thanks for your review!
    I hope that everything is going well for you.

  • Our first airbnb experience, and it was really great. We stayed three nights at this really nice looking and clean place near the Skytrain Station. Brigitte is a very friendly and helpful host, she gave us a warm welcome, made us feel very comfortable and even brought us to the skytrain station when we left. In short: An amazing first experience!

  • I stayed three nights with Bridgette and Serge. It was comfortable, clean, convenient and worth the price. I loved the location because it is walking distance to the Drive and the Skytrain. I'd stay with them again.

  • I came up to Vancouver for a new job with my gf and needed a place to stay until I found my new home. Their place was just what we were looking for and they were an amazing host. She was friendly, offered maps to help us get around a new city we haven't been in. The location was great too. Being right next to the skytrain station, it was easy to explore vancouver. Their place was clean and I really felt like I was home! Thank you again Brigitte!

  • We had a great time staying at the house of Serge & Brigitte. Unfortunately we didn't meet Serge, but Brigitte was very friendly and helpful. The house is exactly as it is described on Airbnb. Aslo the location is very convenient: in a quiet area but close to the vibrant commercial drive and the light rail station which goes into downtown. I can certainly recommend staying here!

  • Brigitte is a lovely host and really made us feel at home. We stayed at Serge & Brigitte's place twice and can say that both rooms are comfortable and have a very good bed. A lot of info and guidebooks about the city and the surroundings are also available, which is handy. We would recommend staying here!

  • Thank you Brigitte for a lovely stay in your warm, welcoming home. The room was clean and thoughtfully laid out, and as described, the home is in a fabulous location; easy walk both to the skytrain which takes you downtown, and to the buzzing Commercial Drive. Use of facilities (kitchen, washing etc) was really appreciated.

    Response from Serge & Brigitte:

    Thank you for your nice review. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

  • Brigitte was a perfect host although we didn't meet each other very ofter during our stay. She also responded very quickly to our questions. The house is beautiful and very clean and the location is perfect. Only two blocks away from the Commercial Drive with a lot of bars and restaurants. Also the skylink station is close - 20min to the city centre (incl. walk to the station). We can definetly recommend staying at Brigitte when you are looking for a nice and cosy room in a really cool area in Vancouver.

  • Brigitte is a very friendly and helpful host, we did not meet Serge as he was out of town for business. The house is located in a quit street with plenty of free parking opportunity. It's keyless entry is very convenient! Walk to the subway is about 10 min. And there are plenty of restaurants and shops close by. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable but on the small side. The shared bathroom situation was something that did not really work for us, but we knew that in advance. The "high speed" wireless connection was rather slow and kitchen and living area could do with some updating.

    Response from Serge & Brigitte:

    Thank you for the review
    Sorry for the WIFI connection being slow, the company was doing some change on my account during the week end. For updating kitchen and living room, that's your personal taste!
    Hope you had a good trip back.

  • Brigitte and Serge are caring hosts and it was a pleasure to stay in their house. An extra plus is the near Skytrain station as well as the local bus into the centre of Vancouver. Commercial Drive only two blocks away with all the small restaurants and bars is very conveinient when you don´t want to to back int the centre in the evening. We had a wonderful time in Vancouver and we would like to recommend this place for future visitors. Coming bock? Yes for sure!!

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.
