Some friends of mine from Germany stayed with Sylvain & Alexis, and they found everything perfect. The house is charming, the breakfast is amazing, and Sylvain and Alexis are amazingly nice and helpful. Of course, the location (right off of Commercial Drive) is a great place to be, too!
Ein paar Freunde von mir aus Deutschland wohnten bei Sylvain & Alexis und da war wirklich alles perfekt. Das Haus ist angenehm und sehr charmant, das Frühstück allerbestens, und Sylvain und Alexis sind einfach extrem sympatische Menschen. Ihr Haus ist auch extrem gut gelegen, direct neben dem berühmten Commerical Drive.
Our stay was so wonderful and pleasant! The home and accommodations were beautiful and I would recommend anyone to stay here. The neighborhood was fantastic and full of fun bars, coffee shops, and restaurants. Breakfast was a wonderful bonus and delicious to boot. Thanks again for sharing your home Sylvain and Alexis!
Sylvain and Alexis opened their beautiful cozy home to my partner and I for 3 nights. They were extremely welcoming, pleasant and we felt our space within their home was very respected. They offered a full bathroom for our use only; clean towels, face cloths, soap and shampoo. We had the freedom of coming and going without feeling like we were impinging on their space :)… They provided a variety of delicious breakfast items every morning; yogurt, granola, fresh banana bead, croissants, fresh fruit and brewed coffee/tea. Area was PERFECT; numerous great restaurants, cafe's and local amenities. Directly located on route #20 downtown bus that takes you to the heart of downtown Vancouver.
Beyond any other AirBnB experience by light years, Sylvain and Alexis's home, hospitality, and kindness were incredible. The bed was more comfortable than my own at home, the breakfast (yes, breakfast!) was delicious, they were generous, kind, interesting, and interested in us, and their home is perfectly located a stone's throw from the coolest street in Vancouver. Truly the best place I've ever stayed at. Highly recommended!
Alexis and Sylvain are exceptionally warm and welcoming hostesses. They let us feel like a part of the family. A very nice couple!
A delightful neighbourhood. Commercial Drive is very close by and there are lots of nice shops and restaurants.
Coming back to Sylvain&Alexis' house for the last nights of our trip was very comforting, as they again made us feel very welcome and by this helped to ease our sadness about the end of our holiday in Canada. Even though they had so much to organise for their festival, they still managed to have everthing ready for us, including their amazing breakfast. Thank you once again!
