Heather's apartment is wonderful. There is more than enough room for two, the bed is great and in the kitchen you will find everything you need to cook your own dinner. The neighborhood is very quit but Broadway and 4th Ave, with shops and restaurants, are very close. We found it very easy to discover Vancouver form Kitsilano, you don't need a car.
Heather is a great host. She provided us with detailed information how to get to the house from the airport by public transport. We loved the house and certainly recommend it.
Heather was a great host and I would recommend this space to anyone wanting to stay in the Kits area. Heather showed us around the suite even though we arrived a little later than expected, and had some fruit and treats in the suite for us. The suite was exactly how it is described on her listing and had all the comforts of home. The location is perfect for a walk to the beach, walk to many pubs/restaurants/shops on Broadway and is easy to grab cab or hop on a bus to get downtown. We never had an issue with parking as you can in Vancouver, and we found the suite very quiet at night. We were there for both business and personal and would recommend the suite for both uses. Fast wifi and the desk was great to get work done!
We had a lovely stay at Heathers. The accommodation is Very comfortable and homey. Heather makes arriving and leaving very smooth. I would not hesitate to recommend Heather's suite.
We stayed at Heather's place while in Vancouver. Location was perfect - walking distance to everything including the beach - quaint 2 bedroom apartment with everything we needed. We felt right at home. Milk, yoghurt, eggs, cookies all available to us when we arrived was a GREAT touch - especially with a toddler :) I would recommend Heather's place. She was lovely and very welcoming. Also got back to me very quickly with any questions. Cheers, Mia & family.
We felt welcomed by Heather and her husband, both by their appearance at the cottage when we arrived and by the written instructions and guides they left for us. They gave us very good recommendations about where to eat and even what to order. We also felt that they respected our privacy and were confident that we would make appropriate use of the property.
A perfect suite for our visit in Vancouver. We couldn't have asked for more! Heather was kind and generous -- we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
This was a wonderful AirBnB experience which exceeded all expectations! Heather and Pavol were away but gave very clear instructions; and their helpful and efficient daughter, Erin, kindly checked in by phone to make sure we had everything we needed (we did!).
We had the best sleep, enjoyed the abundant fruit, juices, milk, coffee, toiletries, plentiful towels, extra linens, hair dryers, huge desk, well-equipped kitchen, coffee, books, great TV, perfect shower, lovely private surroundings, easy parking, very convenient and safe location (less than 10 minutes to all the places we had to go)....I could go on and on! So many thoughtful touches, and so clean.
It was hard to leave - thank you Heather, Pavol and Erin!
