Sylvan and Alexis provided us with a warm, comfortable and memorable B&B experience. Their home is exceptionally clean and all amenities are above expectation for cost of the stay. We would recommend their site to any of our friends or family.
This was my second visit. The first time I stayed in the suite, this time I stayed in the room in the main house. Everything was perfect. The energy of the house is positive and relaxing and Sylvain and Alexis are the perfect hosts. They baked fresh croissants for breakfast and also provided fruit and yoghurt and excellent coffee. It is the perfect location, close to the Drive and close to downtown also. I visit Vancouver monthly and plan to stay at Casa Om as often as there is space available.
Sylvain and Alexis are very caring hosts who manage to make you feel welcome yet give you complete privacy. I will stay there whenever I come to Vancouver
Well, I will begin by saying that I can hardly wait for another chance to go back to Vancouver to stay in their space again. Sylvain and Alexis are amazing hosts. They provide a perfect balance between interacting and allowing for independence in their home. The mornings I was there were made special by the glorious breakfast and the whole stay was enhanced by the fact that they keep a home that is super clean something that is very important to me. It was as if I have known them for a long time and I think that is clearly because they are kind, open affable people.
If you are looking for a space that is close to Commercial Drive and a sky train system that makes accessing downtown Vancouver easy this is the place to go.
I can only hope that when I head back, they will have room for me to stay!!
We've now stayed with Sylvain and Alexis several times, and as always it was a great pleasure. Lovely home, amazingly comfortable bed, and delicious baked croissants. All close to the Drive. We'll be back!
Sylvain and Alexis are the perfect hosts. All the organizing of the stay beforehand was very organized and efficient, and Sylvain was very helpful ahead of time. The location cannot be beat - a safe and interesting part of town with all the necessities close by and a short commute to the downtown core. The home is beautiful, warm, clean, and inviting. The room and private bath are perfect, and the bed is very comfortable! As hosts, Sylvain and Alexis are sensitive and gracious, striking the perfect balance of giving you everything you need to make your stay comfortable including beautiful surroundings, inspiring conversation, great food, advice on amenities, transit routes, etc, and also giving just the right amount of space so that you never feel as though you're intruding on their home vibe. I felt very welcome and at ease in their home. My favourite part, other than the hosts themselves, was how beautifully laid out the breakfasts were. Such luxury to have that waiting for you when you wake up! I definitely recommend a stay here.
We contacted Sylvain and Alexis on very short notice and they were more than happy to accommodate us. They have an adorable little place, very much in the character of the Drive, and they made sure we felt at home there. They left us a fantastic breakfast spread in the morning, which we couldn't help but completely devour. I cannot recommend staying with them enough and we look forward to seeing them again when we return to Vancouver!
It was really lovely staying at Sylvain and Alexis'place! Their place is really beautiful and interesting. It's really clean and cozy and they were really nice and accessible.The best part was the breakfast they set up before they left for work....! Thanks for hosting me!
I run a dance company and recently two artists we are working with stayed at Commercial Drive B&B. The hosts Sylvain and Alexis were very welcoming and gracious. The guests had a wonderful stay in a very warm and cozy home situated in a great neighbourhood. Only steps to the Drive, public transit, and shopping. We will definitely keep booking our artists into this lovely BnB!
Sylvain and Alexis were great hosts. They have a lovely home in a very interesting part of Vancouver. They were very helpful and patient with us and they made us feel right at home. They provided us with a very relaxing and welcoming spot to stay while in Vancouver.
