Karen is such an amazing host. I had a wonderful time at her place. She made me feel so much at home. The Parker House is located in such a beautiful neighborhood. It's so close to the famous Commercial Drive in Vancouver. I would definitely stay with them when I plan to visit Vancouver again. Thank you Karen for your amazing hospitality.

I live in the neighbourhood and I put my mom up here for a visit. The place was perfect. The host was great and accommodating, and my mom was very comfortable and had a nice time.

It was an amazing time in Parker Heritage House. Karen was a very warm and friendly host and made my first airbnb experience especially nice. The wonderful house in the very nice neighborhood was perfect to start with a coffee on the balcony in the morning and cool down with a orange juice in the garden in the evening. Every day Karen had hints for me in the morning and warm words in the evening. The room I lived in had everything needed for a two week stay. The kitchen was fully equiped and two bathrooms were available for the . I was there also for business and holidays and for both it was a perfect accommodation. It is close to commercial drive and via skytrain also downtown is not that far away! Thanks for everything Karen! It was an amazing time!

My husband and I had a wonderful time; all the comforts of home with a thoughtful and delightful hostess, Karen. The B&B has a lovely English style garden, which provides a calming and serene experience. The bedroom was just right with a comfortable bed and a convenient washroom. All in all an enjoyable experience, which we plan to repeat next year. Karen is a rare an exceptional hostess who makes extra efforts to ensure the comfort of her guests and makes them feel very welcome. Charlotte and Stu Weinstein

The room: fit for a king, quiet and cozy House: beautiful and very comfortable Neighborhood: beautiful and full of life The host: will do everything they can to help you and make you comfortable, and a most excellent guide to vancouver and its culture. I had a great time at the Parker house, and would recommend it to everyone. I am moving to Vancouver, and chose Airbnb as a place to live until I rent a house for my family. Don't know how I would have managed without Karen's help- she went out of her way to help a stranger in a strange city. Just a tiny example- she went to all her friends asking for kitchen utensils they don't need, so that I could start with a stocked kitchen. A true Vancouver experience, heartily recommended.
