The room is good, large enough and furnished as described. But it was cold for me, and I had to wear coat in the room all day long. The hostess should have been more friendly、politely and helpful.

Response from Carol:
Dear Zhiguo, Thank you for staying in our house with your young son. I'm sorry that I could not be more helpful regarding the use of the kitchen, but it is clearly written in the house rules that guess have only access to the downstairs kitchenette. I hope that my recommendation for good and cheap Chinese food worked out for you. I would also like to thank you for reducing the noise that you are your son were making in the morning; that allowed myself and my other guess to sleep in. As for the heating, we all wear a sweater or a light coat.

Carol was great; she was so accommodating from the get go. Twice I updated my stay and Carol communicated everything quickly via the Airbnb site. We stopped by the night before check-in to find the house; the subdivision can be maze-like if you don't directly come in off 3 RD. Coincidently, Carol was just leaving and when we told her who we were, she gave us a quick tour, showed us the ropes and sent us off with the key a day early! The room is spacious and private, shared bathroom was great, and there was a microwave and fridge which we used since we stayed a few days. Also, it was great to have the laundry available. Free parking and Wi-Fi. What more could you ask for? I would definitely book again! Thanks Carol!

Wonderful experience! Carol made me feel right away at home! I felt we were old friends! She made my stay enjoyable, by inviting me to events and walks... we even went together for lunch once! I really appreciate it. The room is wonderful, the place is clean, and comfortable. I felt I was staying at friends'! The public transportation from Carol's to downtown Vancouver is really good. I came by car by decided to use the bus/transitlink. Carol gave me advice of where to go...

Carol was very accommodating regarding our arrival time. The neighbourhood is quiet and residential, but still easily accessible by public transit. We only stayed one night and didn't have time to hang out with Carol, who seemed nice. The listing description is accurate and the bed is comfortable.
