James was a wonderful, friendly and welcoming host we felt very much at home in his spacious room and the balcony view was incredible! Really close to the city and the surrounding neighbourhood has lots to offer, James also gave us great recommendations for places to eat and he wasn't wrong once. Will definitely be back again if I come back to Vancouver. This was my first Airbnb and I thank him for making it such a good experience.
My stay at James appartment was totally perfect. First of all James is a really kind, energetic, positive, smiling, laughing and chilling person. Chatting with him and sharing pieces of life experiences was highly appreciated.
The room is also very perfect, quite big, with a very very confortable bed, a view that won' t let you sleep;) and very luminous.
A big plus is also the location: you have all the buses to go everywhere, just 5 minutes walk, down the apartment.
And if you prefer walking it is totally duable as well, to reach for instance Granville Island.
Of course i highly recommand James place.
Grazie mille amico mio, sei il migliore!!
James est une personne très accueillante et très agréable. La chambre est grande, calme et l'accès direct sur la grande terrasse est un véritable plus. La vue sur les montagnes et la ville est remarquable. L'appartement est idéalement situé : a 5 minutes a pied d'un arrêt de bus menant directement vers downtown. A l'issue de nos 4 nuits nous recommandons vivement la chambre que propose James.
James was a wonderful, warmly welcoming host and his place is definitely to be recommended for Vancouver visitors. We spent three nights in his appartment which is located pretty perfectly in our opinion. One of the highlights, as you can see on his photos: From out of the bed you can see the beautiful mountains!
James had a lot of maps which where very helpful for finding the perfect hiking trip and cool tourist attractions. Also he had a lot of interesting stories to tell - about the city and about himself. We really enjoyed our trip and would come back for sure if we ever need a place to stay in Vancouver again. Thanks James!
James was very welcoming and easy to talk to. He was very flexible with check in and check out times. The apartment is close to downtown and the view from the balcony is amazing. When trying to plan out what we should see, James was very helpful and provided us several maps which my friend and I used to explore the city. I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Vancouver!
This was such an amazing place to stay. James was super flexible and helpful, not to mention he was a joy to be around.
It was close to everything in the city, and was such a nice place to wake up each morning with all the light pouring in.
Would definitely stay again!
