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.

Kathleen's place is perfect. It's clean, comfortable, on a beautiful residential street, and in a perfect location to either stay local for restaurants or access the city (the sky train is literally around the corner). 100% recommended. Thanks, Kathleen!
An absolutely beautiful space. 5 star hotel calibre suite (although my experience with those are pretty limited), with tea and coffee available for the mornings. Kathleen was extremely accommodating to our need to store our rental bikes, and store our bags temporarily, and even moved them inside for us when we showed up before check in. The location is also great, right next to Commercial drive with lots of shops, bars, and restaurants. When I come back to Vancouver I will definitely be trying to rebook this place!
Very private, cottage-like home. Tucked away like a peaceful oasis in the big city!
Our stay at Casa MacMello was excellent. The suite is the definition of comfort. Not only is it spacious, artistically decorated and set in a beautiful garden, it is a block from the transportation center of the city. We enjoyed being in a vibrant, diverse neighborhood. There are many restaurants, shops and coffee houses a short walk away. Kathleen is a warm, thoughtful and welcoming hostess. We highly recommend this suite while visiting the stunning city of Vancouver.
Had a great stay at this location. Commercial Stn. was very convienient to meet, and only three stops from downtown.Safeway(food)/Shoppers Drug Mart(skytrain tickets) nearby as well.Enjoyed watching the retro-t.v. station(ME TV) for "Perry Mason" late at night.Got to know a different area not familiar with.
My girlfriend and I stayed 5 nights in Casa MacMello, it was our first time staying in an Airbnb and this place couldn't have been a better introduction!
The room was a perfect size for two people with a great little patio deck on the roof, a clean and comfortable little bathroom and shower, mini fridge with coffee and tea provided and a big comfortable bed. The place was and tidy with fresh sheets, towels, toiletries all provided. Kathleen was very helpful when needed, brought us an extra floor fan when things were warm and told me about a great place to eat (Via Tevere Pizzeria).
The neighbourhood is amazing, in my opinion it's the best place to stay in Vancouver. Lots of great restaurants, bars, coffee shops, boutique shops. A Safeway grocery store is a 5 minute walk away and the Commercial/Broadway SkyTrain is a 4 minute walk away along with the 20 Commercial bus that goes north and then along Hastings to down town (and PureBread!) and the 09/99 Broadway bus which goes across Broadway to UBC/Kits/Wreck Beach. The whole city is accessible within 30-40 mins via SkyTrain or Bus from this place. For craft beer lovers there are several breweries within a 25 min walk from here (Strange Fellows, Bomber, Off The Rail, Parallel 49, Storm, and Powell Street) along with a few amazing beer bars in BierCraft and Stateside Craft with tons of beers to choose, so definitely check them out because they're all amazing, especially Storm Brewing!
All in all we had a great time. If you're going to Vancouver and want to stay in one of the best neighbourhoods in a great place then look no further than Casa MacMello!
We really enjoyed the quaint little cottage. Was very clean and comfortable. The backyard is so lovely and the rooftop patio is a real plus! Location is amazing, close to sky train and many delicious food options and cafes.
