The communications from Sylvain & Alexis made sure we had everything we needed. Their home was charming & well kept. We were very comfortable there. We were able to walk to local restaurants & shops. It's a very family friendly neighborhood.
Alexis & Sylvain are great hosts and very lovely people. They welcomed us into their beautiful home like friends. Lovely rooms and delicious breakfast each morning. We enjoyed our stay very much and we will come back soon! :)
Sylvain and Alexis were wonderful hosts. The evening I arrived I was greeted with warm conversation and late night snacks. The morning breakfasts Sylvain created each morning were fabulous.
I would completely recommend a visit.
This is what you need to know: They are excellent hosts, the house is beautiful and conveniently located!
Our kids were nervous about staying in a strangers house, but two minutes with Sylvain and Alexis won them over! They are both fantastic and made us all feel very very welcome. Both of them also are a font of great information about Vancouver, food, attractions, and getting around. We were uncertain about some things and they took the time to make recommendations on what to do and how to get there.
The house is beautiful and very close to some great local restaurants and the bus. The bus stop is about a block away and easy ride to Stanley park and the rest of Vancouver
We were warmly welcomed. The home is beautiful and very clean. The neighborhood is conveniently located right off of a busy and interesting street. The hosts are beautiful people.
Alexis and Sylvain were helpful and nice, even allowing us to store our rented bicycles in the house. The breakfast was yummy! Their home is very comfortable and full of character! Their hard work is paying off. We enjoyed our stay and would stay with them again!
