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 !
Forget downtown Vancouver..stay in Richmond! Super Fantastic Host is more like it!!! Lori was in contact with me all day giving ideas for sites to go see & choices for dinner. Once I arrived she was a gracious host who chatted with my about my travels. The room was sparkling clean and SO comfortable. I had to leave VERY early & Lori was up at 4:45 am to see me off!
Lori and Darcy were such wonderful hosts. The room was lovely, and Lori had thought of everything we could possibly need. The bed was comfortable, and we even had control of the temperature in our room. Even homemade cookies on our dresser! When we came in after our day's activities, they invited us to join them for tea and we had a great visit. In the morning, Lori made a hearty and tasty breakfast which seemed above and beyond. They both joined us for breakfast for another enjoyable chat, and gave us some great advice on where to find a great walking path. We look forward to staying with Lori and Darcy again next time we are in the area.
It was a wonderful day with Lori and Darcy. They took me to Granville Island and then to Queen Elizabeth Park, showed me the beauty of Vancouver, and we had dinner out together. They are great hosts and also awesome travelling companion.
Lori was very considerate. She and Darcy made me feel at home. She picked me up from the airport, showed me the neighborhood, and took me to attraction places. I spent a great time in Vancouver with Lori and Darcy. Definitely recommend for anyone.
Lori and Darcy made me feel extremely welcome. They are extreme hospitable. Lori picked me up from the airport for no extra charge. She showed me around the neighbourhood. She had transit tickets on hand to sell me which provided to be very useful.
The neighbourhood they live in is really nice, clean and easily accessible by transit. Lori made me a great breakfast every morning and provided coffee. 10/10 experience that I would recommend for anyone.
