It was overall a very nice stay! Location is very close to city center and Stanley Park, which is definitely a bonus if you enjoy city life. Condo is spacious with a great view. Will definitely stay again!
Friends who know Vancouver visited us there and said "Oh Gosh, this is the ideal location," and it could not be better. The place is large and flexible, great for our group of two couples and three kids. And it's not generic and sterile - wonderful interesting art work and eclectic and stimulating books abound - it had that great "I could just stay in here and read" feeling. This place is not another empty condo someone has turned into a private hotel - it is a home, it feels like a home, and we can't recommend it enough.
Great apartment! There was plenty of space, we only had four people, but there is more than enough room for six. Also it was also pretty quiet even though you are in the middle of the city. Great location, easy walk to tons of great restaurants and lots of great shopping as well. We could also walk to the seawall, Stanley park and other great attractions. Our host also provided us with a wonderful set of instructions on getting to the apartment, and how everything in the apartment worked and even some suggestions on things to see and do and places to eat. This made everything go very smoothly and seem very easy. It was also very easy to pick up the keys from Miguel, and he was very friendly and flexible, which was great for us since our original flight was cancelled so we arrived much later than originally planed. I would definitely recommend this apartment, in fact I will be checking to see if it is available if I visit Vancouver again!
This was my first experience using Airbnb and all I can say is that Michael was very easy to deal with. He was accommodating, helpful and friendly. It was in general a pleasant experience.
Michael's home was wonderful. My friends and I stayed for nearly a month. The place was fully stocked with everything we could need and the location was great. Michael was extremely prompt in responding to any questions we had. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone who's interested. Thanks Michael!
We were made to feel extremely welcome by Michael and Fernande when we met them. Communication was easy and prompt. The apartment was as described and was in a fabulous location with fantastic city and harbour views and easy access to Downtown, transport etc. It was spacious and accomodated our needs as a family of four adults adequately. the apartment was well equipped for us to be able to cook etc. Michael was very responsive to any issues and queries we had. We would definitely recommend this apartment to others and have no hesitation in rebooking it ourselves next time we're all back in Vancouver.
