Lori and Darcy were the perfect hosts, very welcoming, friendly and helpful with our many questions! The room is lovely, quiet, spacey and exceptionally clean! Breakfasts were perfect and set you up for the day! Couldn't have been a better start to our travels in BC. Thanks so much for everything- especially the birthday breakfast, very kind!!!
Would stay again in a heartbeat!
Extremely positive 1st airbnb experience! Lori was welcoming, friendly and warm, while also being very professional. Lovely comfortable house. Spotless room and bathroom. Very short, less than 12 hour stay but am happy to be going back!
We had a wonderfull time at Lory and Darcy. They are a lovely couple and are very helpfull with everything. Each morning Lori made the breakfast as we liked it. The room was very clean and comfortable. To be short, our first experience with airbnb was a very good one. We can recommend everybody this b&b in the neighbourhood of beautiful Vancouver!!
