I think I could not find a better place to stay in Vancouver !
The apartment is just crazy, it is very convenient to cross the door and to reach the bus stop.
Thank you so much Michael, I won't hesitate to contact you if I need a room again ! :)
Amazing place and an amazing host! Beautiful view over downtown Vancouver with the mountains in the. background. I don't think I could have found a better place to start off my life in Vancouver! Michael is such a kind and helpful person. You definitely can't go wrong staying at his place!
Michael is good and attentive guy. Your apartment is magic, very clean and close to supermarkets and restaurants. I felt at home while I was there.
Michael is a great host and always interesting to talk to. I have very much enjoyed staying there again and the location is ideal for me.
Without doubt the coziest place I have stayed in through AirBnb to date - GREAT pricing too! I have great memories lounging on Michael's sofa next to the fireplace, taking in the great view of Vancouver City and the surrounding mountains.
The apartment is very conveniently located, with the #8 bus arriving more or less every 10 minutes heading downtown with convenient stops along the way to Chinatown and the Chinatown/Science Museum skytrain station as well as ViaRail station (the Quick Shuttle bus from Seattle should be able to drop you here if you ask them). A supermarket is located 2 blocks away together with a pharmacy and Starbucks outlet, and several Vietnamese, Szechuan restaurants are also located about a 15 min walk away from the apartment.
Michael's a great host though due to his work hours is not in the apartment most of the time I was around so it kind of felt I had the apartment to myself most of the time.
Michael is a very welcoming host. He is kind and great company. If I needed anything at all, even something little, he would happily help out in very good time. His apartment is absolutely spotless, and somehow manages to hold a treasure trove of antiques whilst always feeling really tidy and uncluttered. There is a real gas fireplace which keeps the whole place toasty warm all day and all night! The view from the living room window is truly spectacular, it has to be one of the best in Vancouver as you can see the peaceful cemetery across the road, the whole of downtown and the magnificent mountains. I spent many a happy breakfast in front of that window and next to the fire, watching the sun rise. The bedroom is cosy and well-equipped with a cupboard and drawers, the bed is large and comfortable. The location of the flat is also good with buses to UBC and downtown right outside the front door. I had a wonderful time in Michael's flat and would not hesitate to stay again on a future visit to Vancouver.
A gracious host and a memorable apartment.
A half million dollar condo full of treasures with a million dollar view. Most important - MICHAEL is Priceless. What a great host and kind person. He is the type of person who is always giving food and flowers to his friends and family. I was in his condo for 2 weeks and didn't get to see him much because we both had busy schedules. During August Mike had to work late every night, so I did my best to be very quiet each morning. Exchanged notes and did have a few fun late night talks. His place is even more elegant than it looks in pics. Like a nice antique shop in a modern bld. direct buses to UBC & city. Easy walk to Q.E. park flower gardens. Comfortable guest room with plenty of closet space. Maps and tour info in nightstand. Safe area with free side street parking. Small kitchen might not be good for someone who wants to make big meals, but perfect oven for pizza & stove top snacks. Big Microwave. Starbucks coffee maker needs no filters and is easy to lean to use & clean. plenty of hot water. All my airbnb experiences have been good...but this was really special. I just hope no earthquakes or bulls shake up his china shop. any thanks to Michael for a perfect visit.
Michael's place is perfect for an autonomous traveller. He is so quiet that you can't feel that he is at home.
Great place to stay on main bus route with supermarket close by. Lovely view of downtown Vancouver. Michael is a great host with interesting stories Highly recommended.
