Melanie was an excellent host, great communication and very helpful. We had some travel delays getting to Vancouver and she was very understanding. The apartment was awesome and exactly as described. The location was unreal, plenty of do and see, just blocks away. We would definitely stay there again if we were to be in Vancouver. If you're looking for a home away from home, stay here!
This was my first AirBnB experience, and I wasn't disappointed. The apartment was exactly as pictured, clean and well maintained. The location was great. Walking distance to everything from the beach, Stanley Park, Davie Village, Granville Island Market and Granville Street. The bed was comfortable and the two couches provided us plenty of lounging space. The outside siting area allowed us to air dry clothes and stinky sneakers. Our host provided a few snacks upon arrival and even had small toiletries available for us. The apartment felt safe and secure and we never had any issues with the neighbors. The roof top provided some pretty views and we never saw another person using it. The apartment gets a good amount of light in the morning so any light sensitive may want to bring a sleep mask, and since it is in the city, there was typical city noises at night such as people walking home from bars, loud talkers and valets calling for cars, but noting that would keep you up for hours. The television was easy to use and picked up local broadcasts as well as some American channels.
The apartment was located in a convenient location. There were really good restaurants in the area. The apartment was clean and felt homey.
Very good stay, nice apartment, good localization near everything. Owner is nice and attentive. If in Vancouver again, I would take the same place.
This studio apartment was the perfect spot for the 2 of us for our 6 night stay in Vancouver. The position was great. Only a short walk to the middle of Downtown an the attractions we wanted to go to. Great coffee shop/bakery just a block away. A huge grocery market was 4/5 blocks away. Buses in the next street and the Yaletown Skytrain an easy walk away or bus ride if preferred.
The studio had everything we needed to make our stay excellent. Nice aspect from the 8th floor, great comfy bed, well supplied kitchen and wifi access.
Thanks a lot Melanie and your family for making our Vancouver stay excellent.
We had a great time in Vancouver. Melanie was an excellent and efficient host and she dealt with our initial enquiries quickly and clearly. We were made to feel at home in her wonderfully situated, comfortable and cosy apartment. In spite of our being delayed at the airport Melani's Mum waited in the apartment to welcome us. Thanks Irene. We have no qualms about recommending this home. Thanks Melanie and best of luck on your current (website hidden) We are saving the CD until we get home.
We spent two nights in Melanie's apartment, and had a wonderful time. Excellent location, clean apartment with lots of light, and Melanie was a responsive and gracious host. Definitely recommend for your trip to Vancouver!
