I was supposed to call Mai an hour before checkin. I was a tourist from US and our cell phones did not work in Canada. . This was a major issue as public phone booths are a thing of the past any more. I therefore proceeded straight to the property hoping that Mai or her caretaker may show up and answer the doorbell. While in the neighborhood looking for the address I ran into a stranger and asked him for a favor and he readily obliged. When he called from his cell phone, the call went to a voice mail - he left a message that Chet is waiting to check in at her property. I had to have faith that someone will show up soon.
Upon reaching the property I saw 2 comfy chairs and a telephone on the front porch with the instructions to call Mai. I called again and left another message that I was now at the property. Within minutes David showed up .
David was extremely courteous - helped us with our bags, checked us in, familiarized us with the property. answered all our questions, gave us suggestions on restaurants near the place and he even offered to drive us to the restaurant which we readily accepted after a long tiring day of travel.
After dinner we settled in. Am keeps the place very clean. All the guests were extremely respectful of each others comfort and the stay was very comfortable. Mai / her caretaker was very accommodative and responsive in fulfilling our requests when we asked for an alarm clock and a fan to combat the unusual heat VC was experiencing. Am even offered to print and bring my boarding passes.
The place is extremely conveniently located to Vancouver public transport which is one of the best I have seen in the whole world (and I have traveled to several countries in 4 continents so far) - getting anywhere was a snap with bus stop just a block away, a slew of restaurants within a couple of blocks and shopping within 5-6 blocks.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the stay and would recommend it to my family and friends.
Mai made the process very easy for us. We were attending the World Cup final in Vancouver and the pictures of the house were exactly what we were given. With our busy schedule of traveling through Vancouver, we didn't get to meet Mai but we were very impressed with the quiet neighborhood and the close walk to the train. Especially since we were coming back late each night, we never felt unsafe. The house was perfect, the amenities were perfect, and compared to where our friends stayed, Mai's house was the best option. Thank you Mai for your hospitality.
My friend and I had a great time at Mai Lodging. The bus stop was a two minute walk while the Skytrain was a 15 minute walk from Mai Lodging. We met a few other travelers, all were really friendly. The place kitchen was renovated and practically fully equipped. The home was very beautiful.
Everything was OK.
The room and the place was clean, the kitchen was well equipped,
Very friendly host. It was a pleasant stay!
Very friendly host. Explained everything we needed to know for the flat and the directions to get to downtown. Our room was small but clean. Also nice is the bathroom with a toilet and another toilet seperately.
