I lived in Lori&Darcy's home two weeks ago. The clean bright bedroom, the lovely dining room and delicious homemade breakfast...Wow! Everything was incredible perfect! It was my first AirBNB experience as well as the first journey in Vancouver . Lori is very nice and patient, she printed out some popular routs on the paper and gave my friend&I good ideas to travel around. She's really thoughtful and almost fully prepared everything to help with our question and problems. And also, the location is quite convenient to access to public transit. Thanks Lori&Darcy for giving us an impressive experience!
What a brilliant introduction to Airbnb. I arrived a guest and left a friend. Couldnt have gone better. I felt very much at home and one of the family. The breakfasts were superb. They were such lovely people - I would thoroughly recomend. The room was comfortable, clean and had everything you would need. A lovely relaxed atmosphere - A great start to my holiday. I will be back! Thank you.
Darcy and Lori are very good hosts. They kindly showed us the parking space and allowed us to park at their undergrounded space. The room is exactly as what is shown on the picture. It is very warm and clean. Lori made very yummy breakfast and let us know the good travelling attractions in Vancouver. They even gave us the post cards they made as souvenirs! I will definitely check out with them if I come back to Vancouver :)
Lori is the type of person who will go above and beyond to make sure her guests have an enjoyable stay. She gave me an early check-in on short notice and spent significant time helping me with my luggage items and showing me around. She and Darcy are a delight to talk with. Their place is spotlessly clean and Lori is very well-organized. The photos accurately reflect their place and the room. The bed was very comfortable with nice linens and pillows, and it was nice to have a private bathroom.
I had great experience staying at Lori's place for a short trip to Vancouver. The place is well maintained, spotlessly clean (especially the washroom, which is a big plus), and look exactly like their picture. Lori did a lot to make her place a nice and comfort place to stay in, and the home-made cookie and breakfast is just marvelous :) Their place has convenient access to highway which goes to all 3 cites in Greater Vancouver in minutes. I would definitely stay with Lori again when I have the need to visit Vancouver.
My mom and I had such an amazing experience staying at Lori and Darcy's place, they were soooo welcoming and helpful, really made us feel right at home. The place was just as described if not better, clean and comfortable, Lori thought of every details to make sure we had a great stay. We arrived pretty late on the first night, they stayed up and waited for us and even offered us tea, then we sat down and chatted about places we've been to and everything else, it was super cool, oh and we loved looking at all the beautiful pictures she had taken from her travels. And the next day Lori made us delicious breakfast, she also suggested lots of neat places to check out as we've been to Vancouver many times (easy drive from Seattle) but always ended up going to the same places every time, but she got us excited about visiting Vancouver again. We honestly can't imagine any bnb experience better than this, no wonder they are "superhosts". Highly highly recommend staying with Lori and Darcy, we will definitely be there next time we visit Vancouver.
Side note - just want to point out that if you are the "keep-to-yourself" type, don't let my review scare you away. There was a couple staying at the other room (there are only 2 in the townhouse), Lori was still very friendly and made sure they had everything they needed, but totally respected their privacy.
Lori and Darcy were amazing hosts, beautiful home in a wonderful neighbourhood.
Lori gave me some great suggestions on where to visit and eat which was much appreciated for my first trip to BC.
Breakfast was delicious and those ginger cookies were fantastic!!
Slept like a baby in a nice comfortable bed, lots of space for your belongings.
Bus stop was just outside which made it very easy to get to the SkyTrain.
I will definitely be recommending this location to friends and family.
Thank you for an awesome experience !
