Sylvain and Alexis are incredible, incredible hosts. Four friends and I spent the night and left at the crack of dawn to go and run a half marathon and in the 12 hours we were there we were amazed by the hospitality and their warmth. Their home is a place of peace and they themselves are incredibly compassionate. We cooked up a great meal for dinner walked around the great surrounding neighborhoods and did a bit of yoga. I was really flattered that they woke up at 5:15 to serve us a delicious breakfast.
The beds are cozy, the house is a delight, the neighboorhood is charming and Sylvain and Alexis are golden individuals. For our first AirBnB experience we were amazed by the hospitality and will be staying here on our next trip without a doubt!
Big hugs to Sylvain and Alexis!
10 out of 5 stars :)
A lovely, artful place to stay! Sylvain and Alexis are such gracious hosts, they made us feel welcomed and nourished. We look forward to staying here again next time we come to Vancouver.
This was the first time we used Airbnb. Sylvain and Alexis were great hosts, warm, very kind and made us feel very welcome. Our 10yr daughter enjoyed her own beautiful room. Its was all good :-) Great experience. We would go here again. Thank you Sylvain and Alexis.
It was so nice for me to use Air bnb at the first time ! They are really great to host us, even we stayed only one night. The house is clean and pretty, and comfortable to sleep. Especially, they gave me a breakfast in the morning, it was good! That made me feel like I want to stay more. After that, I will be a fan of this service. Thank you for good meeting!
This was our second stay with Sylvain & Alexis, because we had a wonderful experience with them last year, so we already knew that we would be comfortable to stay with them. They are kind, warm and friendly, made us feel like we are celebrity and the family all at the same time. They served different breakfast every morning with fresh fruits and coffee, we so enjoyed the stay! Even the week with my work was very busy, but I was able to charge up the energy every night in the comfortable bed and quiet room.
We have no doubt every one will have a great time by staying here.
This is the second time I have stayed in Sylvain & Alexis' home. They ensured that their home was welcoming and warm. They had wonderful breakfast food for us and we enjoyed basking in the peaceful energy of their home. The space is spotless and has every comfort you can imagine. Staying there is like coming home an experience that is re-energizing. The location is superb and we cannot wait to return!
We relocated to Vancouver, and we were lucky to have Sylvain and Alexis help us out. We stayed for a month. Absolutly beautiful home, there is a reason these guys are super hosts.
The place feels like and home as oppsoed to a hotel. All the amenities are top notch, Bed, Bathroom etc. The location is unbeatable, with buses to anywhere from Commercial Drive.
The breakfast provided is that extra touch to make you feel at home.
Couldn't ask for a better stay in Vancouver. It was a privilege to stay with these guys.
