My stay at Brigit and Serge was a very nice experience. The room and the house is exactly as described. Brigit is a perfect host, she makes you feel at home in a natural way, finding this balance between privacy and being there whenever you would need her. I stayed there for a week.
The neighbourhood is quiete, I slept well, the bed is really comfortable. Commercial Drive is a colourfull, multicultural place. A lot of funny stores, and interesting places to eat.
Easy excess to down town or other parts of Vancouver by the 99 Express Buss.
I will recommend it to every body.
I enjoyed my stay at Serge & Brigitte 's home very much. They were very sweet and helpful and made everything easy for me. It was a pleasure meeting them. The house was clean and the room well prepared). The location was perfect---right next to Commercial Drive yet a very quiet neighborhood. The Sky Train and buses are all within 10minutes walking distance. I would like to meet them again if there is an opportunity to visit Vancouver near future.
Le logement convient à la description et l'environnement très agréable. Accueil très convivial et bien indiqué au niveau de la chambre et des diverses utilisations domestiques tels que internet, toilettes, cuisine etc.
Thanks for being excellent hosts, we didn't miss anything (more time, maybe?) and very much felt like home from the very beginning.
It is now really tough being back to Germany and we already miss sitting in the garden, having a beer (or two) from one of the many local breweries and chat with you about this or that.
The house is located in a very calm area (we slept so well and simply ignored any jet lag) although being close to the vibrant Drive, which is a fantastic place to enjoy food from almost all parts of the world or just watching people.
Walking distance to the skytrain which connects you easily to all areas of Vancouver, e.g. 5 mins to the False Creek or Chinatown, 10 mins to Downtown.
Serge and Brigitte, thanks for your hospitality and all the useful input about what to do, what to see, where to eat, etc.
We hope to see you again.
We enjoyed our stay at Serge and Brigitte's place. Everything was exactly as described and we felt right at home. The queen bed was comfortable and we slept very well.
We had a WONDERFUL - AMAZING experience at the place of Brigitte and Serge ! This was a real Airbnb - experience. We definitely understand why they are Superhosts. They absolutely deserve it, because they really succeed to make you feel at home.
For us this feeling came from all the small gestures like a nice welcoming card, small notes, city information ready to use, a nice welcoming sign on your door, shampoo / conditioner / shower gel, small snacks, etc etc ! And above that a nice breakfast for the first morning.
The place is really nice with a perfect location (just 2 minutes from Commercial Drive and 10 min from the skytrain). The house itself is very neat (included the bathroom which you only share with the other guestroom).
We could not meet Serge in person, but we were amazingly cared for by Brigitte. She is a wonderful host and thinks about everything to make your stay perfect ! We had several nice conversations with her, with a balance of giving privacy.
She even dropped us of at the bus station, which we really appreciate.
We definitely recommend this place and we will be coming back for sure !
Brigitte and Serge were very friendly, even when we didn't speak very good in English, they had the patient to speak to us helping us in anything we needed. The house is clean and comfortable, you have your own space with everything you need.
The house is close to Commercial dr, a nice place to go to eat, to go to the market, and to go out at night. Also is close to the skytrain, which makes easy and fast the way to downtown from the house.
Thank you for your hospitality Brigitte and Serge.

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. :)
