Our stay with Sheila and her family was great. Room was clean, bathroom had everything we needed. There are great trails right by the house we enjoyed riding our bikes on. Shelia was helpful and kind :)
Sheila was an amazing host. Her family was great and the kids were super adorable. The rooms were exactly as described it was so great to have my own bathroom. I stayed with them for several nights and got to learn a bit about them. And I think I taught her a little about being gluten free. Thank you so much for your hospitality Sheila! I look forward to the possibility of meeting up again the next time I'm in Vancouver.
Sheila was really friendly and her house is very nice. We enjoyed the short visit in Richmond and Vancouver. Parking was really easy outside the house. Would come back again in the future!
Lovely place that is just off the river front. The evening sunset was spectacular. The room was neat and tidy when I arrived and had a fresh pair of towels ready. The only sad part was that I couldn't stay around for longer.
