  • Allen is a wonderful host. The apartment is spotless and efficient, located in a quiet safe neighborhood. If you plan to visit Vancouver beyond the downtown area, this is a perfect location. We appreciate the thoughtful details, such as great wifi, bottled water, hot water kettle, private entrance.

  • Allen is a great host and the basement suite was awesome while we had two nights staying in Vancouver. The location was great easy to access to everywhere and back parking was available. The suite was new and clean I would highly recommend people to stay at Allen's suite.

  • Great accomodation, the apartament has everything you could need, and it's cosy, clean and quiet. Public transport leads you downtown in a while, and Allen is helpful and kind. Great value.

  • Hi Allen this is Patricia Carpenter, Jims Wife..(Here in Australia) Jim is now in RedDeer with his friend. I was talking to him on the phone (landline) As you kindly gave him yours.... Yes he was very happy with your friendly accomadation. He said you were very helpful with all the goings on in the area, how to catch public transport etc. He enjoyed your Private suite, being older and use to his own space. He said your mum and dad were friendly, and you are a busy young man, doing study in the medical field. He realised after a day or two he was in the chinese district, but all good and would recommend your accomadation to all who would like friendly, clean accomation. He had trouble with the coffee machine, more use to the kettle system. Drinks a lot of tea. Jim is now on his second journey of his bucket list.... Gets back to the Gold coast mid July.

  • I had a great stay in this suite for three nights, as others have mentioned Allen is a courteous host who is happy to provide any necessary info and then leave you in peace. It's a well kept, self-contained suite that's super comfy and feels more like your own pad, really exactly the kind of thing you'd look for in an AirBNB place.

    The house itself is a little further out in the suburbs than I realised but getting into the city is simple - it's a ten minute bus to the Skytrain that takes you into the centre of everything, with easy transfers. For basic amenities and groceries (not to mention some tasty Chinese restaurants and bakeries) you have Victoria Road a few blocks down the street.

    I used this place to take a couple of days off, get some work done and I also spent one day exploring Vancouver. For my purposes it suited perfectly, and I would stay here again.

    Response from Allen:

    Thank you Jimbo. It was a pleasure hosting you!

  • Allen is a great host! He gave us a warm welcome and was so kind to guide us about the city. The suite did not have iron stand however on our request, he provided it immediately. The suite is very small but great value for the location; and while we were 2 friends staying, it is good for up to 3 people.

    The downside is that it is part of a multiplex and laundry is right outside the suite. It gets extremely noisy during the laundry hours, however Allen has restricted the laundry hour to the latest of 8 or 9 pm. Another bigger downside is that sounds easily travel a lot through walls and therefore you get a lot of noise from other units (shower, walking). We were cool with it however, 2 of us were just talking around 10 pm in very normal voice when someone complained and we received a request from Allen. We were very surprised. So I do recommend this place but only if you are traveling for business and are going to sleep and wake up quite early or if you follow those timings during your vacation. Otherwise, if you are a group of friends and are in Vancouver to have fun, enjoy night life and some (very decent and bornal) fun within the unit, this is perhaps not your best bet. So in short it's a good place n value for money if you want to crasg here, go to sleep and leave early morning.

  • Simple, clean and just what we needed. Parking in the back driveway is a plus, as are the washer and dryer. Check-in and check-out are very easy too. We didn't meet Allen, but I believe it was his father who checked us in and he was very nice, brought us extra pillows and towels and everything.

    June 2014
  • The suite is very clean and comfy, there was also plenty of parking outside (both front and back of house). Allen was also very helpful in answering questions and provided input on things to do/eat in the area. The only negative is that the wireless internet signal was very weak, the service would cut in and out.

  • Allen was a wonderful host. Not only did he graciously welcome us upon our very late arrival as we had a late flight into Vancouver, but was so helpful in helping us with directions and recommendations on restaurants and other places to see. We enjoyed staying in a very nice, clean, private apartment. Thanks so much Allen!
