About this listing

Make yourself at home. Everything is included, but no parties, no pets, no smoking. This is a quiet building in a perfect location, and you will appreciate that. Thanks
Barbara as a host was gracious, charming and generous in her email communications - the apartment was spacious and comfortable and the location was fantastic.
My friend and I stayed in Barbara & Dan’s apartment for about a month in April/May 2012 and had a wonderful time. The location is fantastic, steps away from the beach and the beautiful Stanley Park, and has a great water view from the large living room. Downtown is easily within walking distance and there are 2 supermarkets very close by (we walked everywhere!) should you want to make use of the well equipped kitchen. The apartment itself is a great size, 2 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms – more than enough for the 2 of us sharing.
Barbara & Dan are great hosts too. They left us a folder with recommendations of things to do, restaurants (of which there are a lot nearby!), places to see etc. and were available by e-mail should we have any questions – a truly lovely couple. The neighbours are all very friendly and the building manager, Violeta, is a gem!
If you’ve never used Airbnb before, they make the process really easy and offer a safe and secure way of booking somewhere great that is much better than any hotel and, having had such a great experience with them this time, I’m currently looking at making my next booking with Airbnb and recommend them to all my friends.
About the Host, Barbara
My husband and I are retired professionals who travel extensively. We make the apartment available when we will be away for an extended period. You could even contact us and request a time and we would be happy to consider it. Because this is only our second experience with airbnb, you will not find many past visitors' comments, but be assured that we can provide the recommendations of all past visitors. So many have become friends and repeat guests, although we usually lose them when they fall so in love with the area that they become permanent residents themselves. It's true. The West End is terrific. Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you.
