Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Wir haben 4 sehr schoene Tage bei den Beiden verbracht. Das Haus ist liebevoll im Landhausstil eingerichtet, sorgfaelltig gepflegt, einfach zum Wohlfuehlen. Morgens erwartete uns ein leckeres Fruehstueck, abends ein Tratsch mit Alexis und Sylvain.
    Die gute Verkehrsverbindungen nach Downtown, Geschaefte und Restaurants um die Ecke. Ihr werdet es nicht bereuen!!!

  • Sylvain and Alexis were wonderful hosts. They opened up their comfortable home to us and provided a delicious breakfast each day. The check in was seamless, they were only a phone call away to answer any questions. They are close to the action on vibrant Commercial Dr. It was especially nice to have onsite parking behind their house.

  • We had a perfect stay with Sylvain and Alexis. My mother and I each had our own bedroom, both very comfortable and spacious. We were easily able to access the house and found the surrounding area very charming. Alexis and Sylvain are delightful people, so warm and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and filling. Their home is decorated so nicely, (email hidden) for us to start our vacation. We were going on a cruise the next morning and were easily able to get a taxi to Canada Place. If I was to go back to Vancouver, I would hope to stay with them again.

  • Our stay with Alexis and Sylvain was really nice, they were very kind and friendly. When we are in Vancouver again, we will stay there.

  • Nice host. Lovely house. Around 20 mins to the train station. 2 mins walk to the bus stop to downtown. Have a very good experience at their house.

  • Sylvain and Alexis were great hosts and made us feel at (email hidden). It was a real B&B with a delicious breakfast. There was also a playground and lots of restaurants nearby. Just perfect.

    May 2014
  • This B&B was excellent, and exactly as advertised.

    High points:
    Sylvain and Alexis are friendly, attentive and informative hosts.
    The matress is far better than any I have encountered in hotels.
    The house is 1 or 2 blocks from several excellent restaurants.
    The home is beautiful and comfortable.
    The breakfast was excellent.

    There were no downsides.

    I did have the opportunity to use the wifi. I ran a large file transfer through it in the normal amount of time. Since use of the large home-office space (across the hall from the bedroom) is part what Sylvain and Alexis offer, this B&B is perfectly suitable for business trips.

    We were able to easily take public transportation to and from downtown.

  • My group and I were driving down to Vancouver from Jasper and Sylvain and Alexis were so nice to accommodate us for one night's stay as we were leaving Vancouver the following morning.

    Communications with the both of them was excellent - they even reached out to me a few days ahead of the stay both via email and airbnb to check if there were any specific questions or dietary requirements for the breakfast that they were going to be serving for us.

    Finding the place was easy, and Sylvain gave clear instructions as well when I had a quick call with him en route to his place.

    The rooms and space given to us for our stay was just lovely and extremely cosy. There is even a computer and wide open space/tables for us to relax and use our computers if we wanted to outside the rooms.

    Breakfast was EXCELLENT! A huge range of organic fruits, granola (local bakery made we were told), pastries where placed in front of us. Coffee was also very good.

    In all, excellent hosts and an excellent stay. I'd definitely be visiting again the next time I go to Vancouver!

  • Our hosts, Sylvain and Alexis, were very welcoming and caring of our needs and comfort. Our accommodation was shining, clean and fresh. Bed and bedroom very comfortable and cosy. The house is in a lovely street close to the action - but quiet too.
    Breakfasts were a treat of fresh, organic food including variety of fruit and locally baked goods. And the best coffee ever.
    Plenty of space and privacy with outside deck under the cherry trees.
    Sylvain and Alex were gracious and generous at all times whenever we met.

    May 2014
  • This is my home from home - a wonderful relaxing place to be. Great accommodation - great hosts. :-)
