About This Listing
The apartment is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood in Kitsilano. It's perfect for a trip to Downtown, the beach or just to shop along Broadway. We'll provide you with a cosy sleeping couch for two, a nice kitchen with a dining area and a clean bathroom.
Sebastian and I live together in that nice little apartment. The hardwood floor and the cassette ceiling make the living room cosy, unique and personnel.
Eventhough I offer you a sofa bed, it's as comfortable as a normal bed, where two people can easily sleep on. Your bedroom is also equipped with a TV an armchair and a window bench.
The living room has a door to the hallway, which can be closed for more privacy. To the kitchen there's a small open walkthrough, which can be closed by a curtain.
You can use the kitchen, dining room, bathroom and laundry room ($1.50 coin laundry machine). Of course you have free access to the WLAN.
I can provide pillows, bed sheets and towels.
If you need some space in the fridge, just let me know and you get your own shelf.
Parking is free on the street, usually there is always a spot open.
Interaction with Guests
If you want to, we can cook something or just drink a beer or wine together. Depending on my schedule, I can show you around or at least provide you with some sightseeing or shopping tips. I also have some maps and travel guides (in english), which you can use to plan your day.
Kitsilano is great. It has a nice beach to hang out, you can walk from there to Granville Island, you can shop at West 4th Avenue or enjoy a beer in a pub on West Broadway.
If you want to see some more from Vancouver, it's easy to get to Downtown, UBC, Richmond, Burnaby or airport.
But you can also stay in the quiet neighborhood and relax by reading a book in a cafe, on the beach or at the apartment.
To take the bus is the easiest way to get around. Bus 16 takes you right to Downtown or to Broadway, where bus 99 leaves every four minutes. That bus brings you to Granville, Commercial, Cambie or Main Street, where you can go shopping or take the Skytrain to move on to Metrotown or the airport. In the other direction the 99 takes you to Point Grey and UBC.
The best way to get here from the airport is to take the Skytrain to King Edward, hop off and hop on the bus 33. You have to get off at Arbutus and just have to walk one block to our place.
Every guest will be treated like a friend, but therefore we want you to be a considerate and respectful guest.
Pets are not allowed.
Smoking is prohibited on the whole property.
Great location, comfortable and amazing hosts! It's exactly the way it was described, Stephanie even stayed up and waited for us to get in at midnight! Sebastian was also offered us pancakes one morning. Highly recommended!
Stephanie and Sebastien were fantastic. We arrived and the room was as comfortable and cozy as we had expected. She even had pamphlets about the city for us to check out! They were very friendly and welcoming.
The neighboorhood was very nice, and very close to downtown Vancouver - just one bus away. We would definitely recommend this location for any visitors!
Thank you Sebastien and Stephanie for having us over. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
The street in front of the house was really beautiful. The room was spacious and clean. Though we had not that much communication, Stephanie was kind. When we stayed at there, it was rainy so the room was a little cold. Thank you for cozy room :)
I can only echo all the other reviews. We had a great time staying with Stephi and Sebastian. They are awesome and very welcoming hosts. You have the biggest room in the house just for you and everything is very tidy and clean. You won't find anything better around even at much higher rates!
Thanks a lot!
Excellent host! I can speak highly about the level of care and curtsey. Everything was organized perfectly. Defiantly I'll recommend them to my friends and I'll be looking forward to see them again.
We were greeted by Sebastian with a warm smile, following a tour of the house, feeling very welcomed.
Sebastian is a very considerate host, easy to chat to and respected our privacy. Welcomed us to his food and invited us to a home-cooked meal.
The room was clean, stylish and cosy -exactly as pictured. Fold out futon was bigger than I expected. There were even chocolates on our pillows to greet us!
The neighbourhood was peaceful, very family picturesque.
Would definitely stay again! :)
Stephanie and Sebastien were great hosts. They made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. The bed is extremely comfy and the room was very spacious as well as the whole house being beautifully decorated and furnished. She is very helpful especially for newcomers to the area such as ourselves, even down to her small touches of maps and guidebooks in the room.
A great area also, bus stop within 100 yards of the front door and Main Street for shopping and eating only a couple blocks away.
About the Host, Stephanie
Some of the things you say about Germans are true. I'm reliable, always on time and everything has to make sense to me. But thanks to my halfasian roots, I don't take everything to serious. I'm open minded, love to travel and like meeting new people.
Till now I mainly travelled through Europe, Southeast Asia, some states in the US and now I live in Vancouver. Some of the greatest things I experienced is jetskiing in Vietnam, scubadiving in the Philippines, surfing in Bali and hospitality all over the world. Hopefully I can pass this hospitality on to my guests.
