Everything in my previous review stands. Lori and Darcy are wonderful hosts going above and beyond to make us comfortable and welcome. We stayed in the East room this time, with attached bath, also a wonderful, comfortable sanctuary to retreat to during a hectic visit to family.
Before arriving Lori had already helped me feel at ease about trying out airbnb for the first time. She communicates clearly and with warmth. #hi5 Upon arriving she greeted us and talked with us about the incredible Vancouver B. C. day we'd had and then showed us to the bedroom.
In the AM Lori prepared an amazing vegan breakfast for us before we got on our way to the US/Canada border. Her advice on avoiding traffic was perfect and we made our way back home safe and sound.
The next time my wife and I travel to Vancouver B. C. we will be reaching out to Lori again for sure!
This was our first experience with Airbnb and I'm happy to say it was a good one! We arrived quite late, but Lori met us at the front door with a smile and some fresh baked cookies in our room. We chatted for a while then slept quite comfortably for our two night stay. Breakfast was delicious and we were happy to spend time with Lori, Darcy and another long term guest. They were quite helpful in making suggestions of places to see on our full day in Vancouver, and in helping to arrange our final day before taking off on our Alaska cruise. Much more comfortable than a hotel at a fraction of the cost. We highly recommend and hope to return in the future.
The listing description was accurate and the hosts were very welcoming and friendly and made us feel at home.
Back to Lori's AirBnB for my last night in Canada, again made most welcome by Lori and Darcy who shared a lovely evening me and Lori got up really early to drop me to airport for 5am with a "to go" breakfast! Is it any wonder she is "Super Host". Would HIGHLY recommend on all counts...professionalism, friendliness, lovely comfortable home and exceptional service, super value for money!
Lori & Darcy did everything to make us feel at home, so we decided to return to their b&b after our stay in Oregon. Again they didn't disappoint us, on the contrairy! It is perfect!
Clean and comfortable room, tasty breakfast and wonderfull people!
Very nice room, exactly the same as in the pictures. Great hosts! If you have a car , will be more easier.
