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.
I truly had a wonderful experience in Vancouver thanks to Alexis and Sylvain. Every morning was so relaxing and pleasant with a wonderfully prepared, healthy breakfast. Since I was in town for a conference, being in a homey space was so key to my sanity, and starting the day off in such a peaceful way was ideal. They gave me great tips for exploring the city in the little free time I had for myself. Their neighborhood is so charming with tons of great bars, restaurants, and cafes to select from. The bus system is super straight forward and you can easily make your way to other areas of the city from where they are. Truly a generous and lovely couple and I definitely would love to stay with them again should I make it back to Vancouver!
Sylvain was welcoming hosts! I had a really good time at his comfortable place. Quite private room was very restful. Breakfast was so nice. I recommend to everyone this accommodation.
Sylvain and Alexis were spectacular hosts who put us up in a lovely bedroom for an impromptu overnight visit to Vancouver. The room, house, and amenities were terrific, the bed was very comfortable, and the morning breakfast was wonderful, filling, and diverse (including the french pressed coffee!). After making it across the Canadian border with an expired US passport, we were exhausted; Sylvain and Alexis made us some tea and chatted with us as we relaxed before dinner. They both have lovely personalities and it was great to get to know them a little bit. Their neighborhood is also excellent and we grabbed drinks after dinner nearby at Biercraft and walked back to the B&B. We definitely will be staying here again next time we visit Vancouver!
What a wonderful turn of the year with Alexis and Sylvain!!! We met a lot of hosts, but Alexis and Sylvain were simply the best!!!
Why isn't it possible to give 10 stars???
As always it was an absolute pleasure staying with Sylvain and Alexis. Their home is beautiful, and the bed extremely comfy. We've stayed multiple times, and we'll be back. Soon I hope!
