Large, completely private, furnished, newly renovated room for rent with personal bathroom. Private Entry (just like a Hotel; you come and go as you want, whenever you want!)
Our place is situated very close to public transit and definitely does not require a car, but of course is more convenient if you have one. There are several bus stops a 2 minute walk from us. The buses will take you in all directions towards a rapid train station (Skytrain) within 5 minutes. The Skytrain can then take you all over Vancouver, Downtown, neighboring cities and Vancouver International Airport. Our place and the rest of Vancouver is easily accessible through public transit.

We enjoyed our stay in Vancouver. Allen's house is only minutes away from a bus stop (26 I believe) which will then connect you to the Sky Train and take you downtown. Very convenient location in a beautiful neighborhood. When we arrived (late btw because of Canucks playoff game traffic) Allen kindly showed us to our room & gave us some history about Vancouver. Very knowledgable and we appreciated the insight. Overall a great first experience with AirBnB.
We arrived and were met by Allen's father. He gave us the keys and showed us our room. The room was pretty much like the description, nice clean bed sheets, room and shower area.
The front of the building has been converted into two suites so you effectively have your own entrance from a front foyer after you enter the main door and interaction with the owners is minimal.
Overall a good experience.
Allan's place was very comfortable and perfect for our 5 day stay. He was probably the best host we've had in our Airbnb experiences. He provided us with everything we needed and was very accessible and easy to communicate with. Will definitely stay here again if we get the chance.
Allen was open and friendly. He took the time to introduce areas of interest and describe the neighborhood surroundings. It was a safe neighborhood and I had no difficulties during my stay. He even checked on me mid stay to ensure my stay was pleasant.
The place was clean, just as the pictures posted. Amenities were provided, which is plus。 I would definitely recommend Allen and stay here again in the future.
The room is comparable to a decent motel room, with some flexibility you won’t find in the standard chain, e.g. a bench seat with an extendable dining table. The room was nicely heated.
The bed and bedding are superbly comfortable! The room has excellent light-blocking curtains.
The bathroom is a bit small but is otherwise fine. You will have to be a bit careful when placing your toiletry items on the small glass shelf.
The bar fridge is ok, but I wish it had a separate freezer. The ice box inside does make and keep ice, but you couldn’t store TV dinners inside.
The dishwashing area is very basic, but it's ok once you get used to it.
The clothes washer/dryer at the back of the house are fine, but you might be walking through the rain to get to it. Vancouver does rain a lot.
The Wi-Fi/Internet setup is good, but while the speed is very fast during the day, it drops to zero after about 6:30 PM and stays that way till about 11:30. That’s the problem with Shaw Cable. If you need evening Internet, you might want to look for a place with DSL instead. (Unfortunately, this problem seems to be endemic in Vancouver.)
Location-wise, the room is very nicely situated even if you don't have a car, which was a huge plus for me. There are services of all kinds within a ten-minute walk or a similarly short bus ride. Metrotown is about a 20-minute bus/Skytrain ride away. The house is a block away from a high-traffic street with very frequent bus service during the day and respectable service at night. Nevertheless, the noise level here is zero despite the proximity to a major street, since it is set in by a block.
For me, about the only negative about the location was not having a gym really close by. Killarney Pool is the closest rec center, but it was a more difficult to get to than I would have preferred. (Obviously, though, if you have a car, you won't have this issue.)
Allen was responsive to emails when I made the reservation, and he was pleasant to deal with when I arrived.
All in all, I had a very pleasant stay and would recommend this service provider to anyone visiting Vancouver!
A great spacious room with an even better host. Allen was full of suggestions and tips for the city on what to do and where to go. Turn down time is quite early as there are other guests in suites nearby, but it is an ideal place to stay if you're just looking for a place to crash after a hard day of exploring. The room is full of little and considerate extras-thank you Allen for the great stay.
