Hollie was a great host with a beautiful home. A great location for exploring the city and the restaurants nearby are excellent.

My friend and I had such an incredible stay at Hollie's private suite! The location was perfect, just a few blocks from great restaurants and a few miles from Stanley Park. We also thought the suite was quiet, clean, well-designed, private and charming. It was a wonderful place to come back to after exploring Vancouver. And the shower was amazing! Hollie was an incredible host and, although we didn't get to meet her, she was available via text and email (we didn't have cell service in Canada), and very responsive. I would highly recommend this listing if you are visiting Vancouver!

My wife and I enjoyed staying in this suite. It is exactly as pictured in the listing. The location is convenient, as it is only 4 or so blocks away from a bus stop that takes you all the way through downtown to Stanley park. We had a car most of the time and were always able to find free street parking. The suite is well stocked and has a comfortable bed. The shower has great water pressure. The Strathcona neighborhood where the suite is located is nice and feels safe. However, I would not recommend walking to downtown from here, especially at night. There are TONS of homeless people between the suite and downtown, as Chinatown (located directly between downtown and the suite) is host to a number of homeless missions. My wife and I did not feel safe walking to downtown from the suite, and the streets in Chinatown were very dirty. We did feel safe walking to the bus stop though. For the price, you cannot beat the location of this listing. Just make sure to have a car or take the bus to downtown. Hollie was a great host and was very responsive. Our only minor complaint was that the suite did not have quite as much privacy as we hoped for, as Hollie lives in the same house and was able to hear us talking and showering after 10pm. We had to be very quiet after 10pm. Also, Hollie had two small dogs that barked every time we came into the suite. One night they barked for about two hours straight. We were able to sleep through it, but it took awhile to fall asleep. We were shocked at how much these little dogs barked, but it was only a minor nuisance. Overall, we were really pleased with Hollie and with the suite and would likely stay there again on a future trip to Vancouver.

Response from Hollie:
Hey Oliver, Vancouver has a high number of homeless people ( but I should remind you , they are not criminals. They are mentally ill and addicted) . This is the result of years of government cutbacks of services and hospitals that treat mental illness. For such a young man, your attitude toward the homeless and your judgement of them ( poor bashing) are very troubling. I hope you raise your children to be far more tolerant.

Great location, if you're a good walker you can easily walk all downtown from this location and if not, the water front and gas town are only about 10-15 minutes walk away. We ate at Finch's Market every day. Two boiled eggs, half an avocado, tomato, toast, with dill sprinkled over the top for 9$ and it's only two blocks away. The room itself is really nice, the bed is extremely comfortable and the shower was way better than my shower at home. All-in-all, a good home base for exploring Vancouver. Hollie was very helpful and helped us get situated when we came in, giving good directions on how to get to the main areas.

Hollie was a welcoming guest. Her place is exactly as pictures and is ideal if you would like easy access to city center but don't to be in the middle of it. I highly recommend this listing! Thanks Hollie!
