Excellent first Airbnb experience. Sheila was welcoming, friendly and provided a lot's of valuable information. Room was exactly like it is advertised. Very nice neighborhood and place in general.
Will recommend and return again definitely!
Sheila met me at her door with a smile and was very welcoming. She was gracious and showed me through her beautiful home. The room was comfortable and the house was very convenient to everything.
Sheila was very friendly and welcoming when I arrived. the neighbourhood is lovely and nice trail is across the street from the home.
Sheila was a very welcoming host, and was very accommodating when I had only made my reservation that morning. The room was large and felt very homey, and the bathroom was great and had all the things a traveller needs! Free parking on the street, and lots of info on Vancouver, as well as a list of local restaurants she made to check out. Definately recommend!
Sheila was very welcoming and gracious even though we arrived later than planned. The room was great with a private bath. It was ideally located - close to the airport and a great walking path across the street, along the river. We would recommend this place without hesitation.
Sheila is a very friendly host. She cared about us and it was nice to chat with her. Although we came bit earlier everything was arranged. The rooms where clean and we had a lot of space for our own. Thanks!
