It is suitable for a single or couple, and has a beautiful Queen bed, bathroom with shower, cable TV, wireless internet, fridge, microwave and coffee maker, and a private deck. Two night minimum, no smoking, no pets.
This was my second stay and I so love this place. I have a feeling that I will stay here whenever I am in Vancouver. The place is clean and well set up, the beds, pillows, and towels are amazing and a great selection of teas and coffees. Enough cant be said about the neighborhood. Just a short walk to the skytrain and so close to commercial st gives you so many options. I highly recommend this place.
I had a really great experience at Kathleen's place. The little house is very cute and has everything you would need. The bed is super comfy, shower was amazing, and a nice little living room.
I loved the neighborhood. Very quiet street, lots of people bicycling and walking, and just a short walk to shops and restaurants.
Kathleen was great, she had the place all ready when we should up and she was super friendly.
I would definitely recommend this space.
Second time and equally as pleased. The space is private and comfy and in a great location. Great hosts!!
Very cute and snug cottage, perfect for a weekend visit. My daughter and I enjoyed our time here. Comfortable bed, plenty of space and good selection of DVD's!
Also liked how close it was to the skytrain--we got in to downtown Vancouver quickly and inexpensively. Also enjoyed the chicken!
Wonderful place! The location was great for my stay in Vancouver, which involved a concert at the Rio Theatre. Extremely close to the Skytrain station. Place itself was cozy. The bed was so comfortable after a long day of walking around Vancouver. Appreciated the table and the couch as alternative sitting areas. One of my favorite parts was doing work on my laptop at the table with the blinds open and watching the chickens in the garden peck around. Kathleen was a great host and had excellent communication through the whole process. Would stay here again in a heartbeat if I ever found myself back in Vancouver.
Kathleen was a wonderful host. Provided tips on the neighborhood and how to get around. Very convenient to a Skytrain terminal. Needn't drive a car to get around town. All information was as promised. Watch out for the cyclists, they are many.
This was my first time renting a place to stay on airbnb and I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about what to expect. Within seconds of arrival, I realized that I had absolutely nothing to be concerned about. Casa MacMello is a comfortable & quaint home away from home. The bed was unbelievably comfy and included both firm and soft pillows. The bathroom included a towel warmer & a large assortment of luxurious soaps, shampoos & lotions. A coffee maker and coffee were also included. The room was very spacious and included a wonderful garden and rooftop patio which we enjoyed while watching the sunrise over the Rocky Mountains. There was a flat screen tv with cable & a selection of DVDs which we did not use because there were too many exciting things to do & see in Vancouver without wasting time watching television. On the well-stocked bookshelf were many local maps and information on fun things to do in the area. The house is a very short walk to the Skytrain which was just $3 and took us everywhere we wanted to go, including the airport. The house is on a street with lovely houses and just a block from Commercial Drive. "The Drive" has lots of cool & funky restaurants & shops, all of which appear to be gay-friendly. The area appears to have been recently gentrified (we were told houses in the area are in the $700,000 range) and there are a number of homeless people on Commercial Drive (not on the residential streets) who are polite and nothing to be afraid of. We saw several police officers in the area who didn't bother anyone as long as they were not bothering anyone else and I never felt unsafe, even when walking back from the Skytrain late in the evening. Hotels in the area were $300-$400 a night when we were there, so we saved a lot of money and had a much more personal & pleasant experience than we would have in a hotel. I am already planning my next trip and I hope Casa MacMello will be available next time I am in Vancouver. The local people were all very welcoming to American tourists and went out of their way to give us directions and suggestions on how to enjoy the city. For anyone who has never been to Vancouver, it reminds me of New York City/Brooklyn with much more friendly/less pretentious people and beautiful mountains in the background.
I am happy to be part of the Airbnb Community!
We have been renting out our space since the Olympics in Vancouver and have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world.
I work full time as a social worker in the community and enjoy my pets, gardening, reading and spending time with friends.
