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 flatmates. 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 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.
I booked this for my visiting family, they had a comfortable stay - the accommodation was clean and tidy, well located to get downtown (and other places), Karen was a great hostess.
Parker House was simply home away from home --in fact, I caught myself several times saying "after X, let's go home" when referring to this lovely B&B. The rooms were comfy and clean, and the house (with lots of history) is in great condition.
Karen was a warm, friendly, humane and interesting host, very helpful giving us tips and directions. Our Vancouver visit would've been very different if we had stayed somewhere else. We hope to stay with her in our future visits to this city.
A lovely spot in a great neighborhood! The room and house were comfy and the coffee was strong and delicious. Karen was very helpful with directions and sightseeing advice. I would definitely recommend Karen's place to friends who want to visit Vancouver.
I highly recommend staying here. Karen is wonderful and the place is nice, cozy, and clean. I was only able to stay for the weekend and wish I was still there. I would also recommend going to the Burmese restaurant which is nearby…it will knock your socks off!
