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!
Alexis and Sylvain are wonderful people. They realy made as feel at home, right from the very beginning of our stay. They shared with us their beautiful home which is very nicely decorated. As previous guests have stated: The breakfast was absolutely excellent!
Thank you so much for your warmth!
Sylvain & Alexis provided us with one of our best accommodations ever. From their beautiful neighborhood, to their lovely relaxing home, to their kind and helpful nature, my family felt immediately at ease. Everyday started with a lovely breakfast and great conversation, and from there we could walk to the many local parks, stores, and restaurants, or we could hop on a bus and explore the city. It was all at our fingertips! I could go on but this is really all I have to say: STAY HERE:)
Alexis and Sylvain are the most wonderful hosts you can imagine! Their guidance in getting to their home, the reception we received and the fact they stayed up until all hours chatting created an environment that made us feel like friends rather than guests. Everything is spotless, the bath is wonderful for soaking in after a long day of sightseeing and the breakfasts - too good to be described! They even bought me a present and had a candle on my GF muffin on my birthday. The neighbourhood they live in is awesome and if you're a foodie who appreciates organic food you are two steps away from heaven. Vancouver is a beautiful city and staying with such authentic, enthusiastic, genuine people as Alexis and Sylvain made it only more so.
We were made very welcome in every regard by Sylvain and Alexis.
It was great to be made welcome and to have a regular chat every morning or evening.
Sylvania and Alexis were great in checking everything was going well.
As always it was a definite pleasure staying with Alexis and Sylvain. They've hosted us multiple times and we keep coming back. Great location, lovely space, great people. Thanks again!
