Lots of parking

Paul is a great character, and has some insight about the sights to see around. He keeps a tidy and nicely kept cozy basement space, and chooses his company well. Keep in mind you'll want to read the details about sharing the space with two bedrooms and choose if you want to book up the full space at full price.
Nice, convenient and peaceful place to land. Friendly helpful host and the queen room has a lovely morning sunlight and waking up to sounds from the park across the road. Great stay. :)
Paul was wonderfully hospitable and accommodating. He got back to us really quickly on any query we had. The property was very comfortable and the description was very accurate. Would recommend this property to other airbnb travellers.
Paul was a great host and took us in at the last minute when we were a bit stuck for a place to stay! His place is really homely and has everything you need, as well as a pretty little park across the street and skytrain right nearby!
Great 'first timer' experience with Paul and AirBnB. house/room were clean and quiet. Paul was very friendly and steered us to the nearby Skytrain for travelling in and out of Vancouver. The common room was very comfy to hang out in. Just the sort of 'international' feeling I would hope for in such a city as Vancouver. Thanks Paul!
Very easy place to find. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you
Safe neighborhood with a nice park right out of your door. Paul is very flexible with my changes of the two-day stay. The description is basically telling you everything you need to know about this place. Although, you might want to have some basic personal goods with you such as body wash and shampoo.
