  • Incredible views and location. Wonderful place to stay. Michael was the most accommodating host. I will stay again.

    Response from Michael:

    Thanks Warren, glad it worked out so well.

  • Whilst we never met Michael, he was excellent at communicating by e-mail. We had no problem at check-in. The apartment is in a superb location if you want to be in the heart of Downtown Vancouver - hard to imagine a better location! Despite being in the centre of Downtown, it was very quiet.
    The apartment is well appointed with everything you could need. It is close to a good grocery store if not! It also gives the use of a free laundry on site, which we found very useful.

  • 관광을 할 수 있는 주변에 모든 시설들이 밀집되어 있어서 상당히 마음에 들었습니다. 방도 깨끗하고 조리를 하거나 다른 시설을 이용함에 있어서도 불편함 없이 편히 지내다가 올 수 있는 곳입니다. 다른 분들께도 추천합니다.
    방 주인인 Mike와 그의 조카 Miguel도 상당히 친절 하신 분들이라 아주 만족스러웠습니다.

  • I loved my stay in this apartment. Michael is a great host, responding promptly to my emails, and was very considerate, meeting my numerous requests. Miguel, Michael's nephew, was responsible for giving us the keys and settling us in. He was very friendly and proved very flexible when we changed meeting times. The apartment itself is in a brilliant position, within walking distance of almost everything, and the bus to the university (UBC) leaves from just across the street. Many coffee shops and places to eat nearby, and a supermarket just down the street in the same block. The views are great and there were no nasty surprises. The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos, and it is very clean and neat. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Very good location, you can walk to everywhere in downtown!
    The apartment was in a good size, but the bathroom could be more clean.
    Michael replied to all my contacts promptly, really enjoyed his assistance.
    Duly recommend that place!

    June 2014
    Response from Michael:

    Very sorry to hear about the bathroom. I'll bring it up with the cleaner. It would be good to mention it to me or Miguel at the time so that we could have the cleaner go in immediately to redo the apartment.

  • Fantastic location! Short run to English Bay, a couple of blocks to Robson Street shopping and within walking distance of great restaurants. Downtown Vancouver at your doorstep and fabulous views from the living room. Meticulous information provided by host, prompt correspondence and easy key drop off by nephew. Would definitely book this place again. Thank you!

    Response from Michael:

    Sorry, about the shower curtain Laurie and I'll mention the kitchen to the cleaner...

  • My husband and I had a wonderful time at Michael's place. Michael is a prompt and efficient communicator, he provided details information on how to get his place. Very clean place with full equipment kitchen. Michael's apartment is located in downtown, 7mins to Skystrain by walk and 15mins to waterfront.

  • Mike was instantly responsive (despite being in Thailand when we booked!) and great host - clear, efficient and organised.
    The apartment was conveniently located for getting around the city, well equipped and comfortable.
    Both host and accommodation get a big 'thumbs up'.

    September 2013
  • Our stay in Vancouver at Michael's condo was PERFECT! Any questions we had were responded to immediately. Miguel, his nephew, was also very helpful as Michael was out of the country at the time of our visit. Film crew was also at the location filming a television episode and that made it even more exciting. Totally non-disruptive - just cool!
    Condo is perfect location and we would be happy to stay here again during our next visit to the beautiful city of Vancouver!

  • I had a great stay at Michael's apartment. The location is excellent and the views can't be beat! He was very accommodating - particularly with check-in and check-out times. I would definitely stay there again next time I'm in Vancouver.
