Great character house seconds from the beach! In Vancouver's most desirable Kitsilano. The top floor room is large and beautiful. A huge outdoor deck space is situated north facing with views of the mountains/ocean and is large enough to be sun drenched all day! There is great wifi, amazing kitchen, great hot shower and access to a wide variety of shops, bars, restaurants, and beaches within steps. Come see for yourself.
James was a great host. The location was convenient and quiet with a great view. His place was clean and had all amenities needed. James was helpful with local tips etc I would recommend anyone stay with him.
James was a great host - very friendly and a good guy. The apartment was clean and comfortable and has a great view from the back deck. I enjoyed my brief stay.
James' place is in a great spot to explore Vancouver - very close to the beach, restaurants, etc. He's a great, easy-going host who made us feel at home by sharing his space with us and giving us great tips on where to eat.
It was a lovely place Meeting James made it nicer still. My wife and I came in for the Vancouver Folk Festival. We really enjoyed being able to walk to and from Jericho Beach, where it's held, as well as another beach three blocks from the house. There are also all sorts of cool things to walk to in his part of the Kisilano neighborhood and it's near the express bus lines, so a breeze to get to and from downtown or the east side.
We also really liked sitting and eating meals on the deck with its lovely view, and just generally hanging out. This is a nice spacious apartment, in a great location so we never felt crowded when we were home at the same times as James. In fact we had some fun conversations with him and he even suggested an interesting free software program to help me manage the work I'm doing. He couldn't have been a nicer host.(and then we had the place to ourselves when he went camping on the weekend). When he was around, he brought cereal, almond milk and fruit for our breakfast, and even had us try some honey a neighbor of his made and some jam that his mother made--both delicious.
We usually stay with friends who had visiting relatives in that weekend, so we stayed with James. We'd stay with him again in a minute. In fact he made us feel like were staying with a friend. Definitely recommended.
I was just in town to see family, and was glad to find a place that was close by. Didn't get to spend a lot of time around James, but had a few laughs with him when I did. I'd use his place again in a heartbeat - It was clean, easy to find, and convenient to use. Overall a very positive experience for me.
