A great experience! As has been said before me, the location of this suite is ideal. Around the corner there is a wealth of restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores; and traveling to other parts of the city by public transport is fairly easy. Better yet, Howie and Lisa are kind and gracious hosts! Before my arrival they provided detailed information about the neighborhood, as well as several of the city's attractions, and their instructions for accessing the suite were very clear. During my stay they were on-call and available if needed, but the space felt very private. I highly recommend this suite.
Howie and Lisa are terrific hosts. Instructions on how to get to the suite and how to gain access, etc. were well done and easy to follow. Quick response time to any of our questions/ requests. Had a great stay in the suite, which had everything we needed and the location is fantastic! Cool neighborhood with fun shop and tasty food, and an easy trip into downtown. Howie also spoiled us with baked goods!!!
Awesome place to stay! Lisa and Howie made sure we had everything we needed and there is a good coffee place around the corner!
Howie and Lisa are awesome! They were gracious and thoughtful hosts, with accommodations that were pleasant, well-located, clean and well-appointed. I definitely recommend them without hesitation!
We had a fantastic stay in Howie and Lisa's suite. The room is a perfect base to explore Vancouver from and the area around Commercial Drive is a great place to hang out. Howie and Lisa are wonderful hosts and treated us to a lovely bakery treat during our stay! We would recommend their place to everyone and would definitely stay again!
As others have said before us, their house is very well located! We were able to drive to anywhere in the city in a matter of minutes. The apartment itself was clean, charming and cozy. Best fit for two people.
Howie and Lisa were very kind hosts, too - they brought us a delicious treat!
Really enjoyed our stay - definitely worth going back for.
amazing location—having spent a fair bit of time in vancouver the drive is easily my favourite hood to be in.
howie and lisa's place is bright and spacious, and they couldn't be more friendly themselves. the place was completely private, but the hosts were always on hand to help out or answer questions (or stow bags past checkout in a pinch).
there's great eating on the drive, free wifi with the apartment, and buses to downtown steps from the front door.
the only catch is that the kitchenette isn't so equipped for cooking your own meals, so this place is probably better suited to a short stay than a long one—but with the excellent coffee, bakeries, and restos nearby it hardly matters.
Lisa and her family are really nice and helpful. Great location and a convenient place for a low price.
My sister and mother in law were extremely happy with the unit. I hope to stay there my self one of these days! Thanks for all your help and kindness Howie and Lisa!
This was my husbands and I first trip using air b&b and Vancouver was our third stop. We stayed at Howie and Lisa's place and loved it!!!!! It had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. We were extremely comfortable in their home and they made sure we had all we needed. They were so very helpful with info prior to traveling as well. My husband and i hope to return soon to Vancouver and check it out in the summer time and would love to stay with Howie and Lisa again. Vancouver was an amazingly beautiful city!!!!!!!!
