This was the first time I was using airbnb and it was a great experience to stay at Laura's. The suite was so clean and fully equipped. The house located just few minutes away from the skytrain station and it is in between downtown and the airport. There are some great restaurants around the area as well! The Queen Elizabeth Park only few blocks away from the house and you can see a great view of Vancouver! I would highly recommend this place to others. And would love to stay there again when we visit Vancouver next time!
This is a great place to stay! Apart from the obvious attractions of a private entrance and a self-contained suite, the apartment was so clean and bright, it felt as if no one had stayed there before. I loved the double shower heads and that the kitchen included stainless steel cook pots (non-stick fry pans) and, amazingly, parchment paper. In addition, Laura communicated with me ahead of time by answering my questions and welcomed me when I arrived, so I felt thoroughly at home. Then, she left and the place became my own, which was great.
Laura and her family were amazing hosts. This was the first time I was using airbnb and I couldn't have asked for better. The studio is conveniently located close to the skytrain mid-way from the airport and downtown. It is very clean and well put together. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is fully furnished as well as the bathroom. Laura greeted us on arrival, showed us around and inquired as to our knowledge of Vancouver. She made sure to let us know that if there were any issues, she would be available. I'm glad to say there were none what so ever. She was even kind enough to leave coffee, orange juice and cookies, which was an added touch and a kind gesture. We even had access to a little patio outside the unit. I would recommend this place to anyone, it really felt like home away from home for a few days. Next time I go back to Vancouver, I hope Laura will have availabilty, as I will definitely want to have her as a host again.
Thank you to you and your family and keep up the awesome work!
My family had a great time at Laura's place. Laura and Rory are wonderful hosts and always helpful. The place is clean, comfortable and spacious. The place is perfect. It is so close to Canada Line station that we could go anywhere in Vancouver. There are Queen Elizabeth Park and Hillcrest Recreation Centre near the place as well, so we enjoyed walks, swimming and ice skating. I would highly recommend this place to others.
Laura is efficient and super helpful in her communication. She helped us connect with some resources that go above and beyond hostessing. We've stayed before and found the suite just as awesome as before! Neighborhood is great with shops, rec center, nature walks, and the skytrain a couple of blocks down the road. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen does have things that other Air BnB's have forgotten or misplaced like a strainer for making pasta. Top notch, super star suite. We would have been back sooner but this place books up so don't delay on reserving.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Laura's place. The spacious suite was well appointed and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything one needs to prepare food - Laura has thought of everything! The bed was very cozy and the small electric fireplace was a lovely treat! Laura herself was very friendly and always available to help with hints and ideas about Vancouver.
We would gladly return!
Really lovely hosts, who were very responsive to all our questions and concerns and welcomed us to their charming basement apartment. Everything felt new in the apartment, and the proximity to the light rail and Main Street is great. If we were recommending it to friends we’d have a couple of things to let them consider: there is the overhead sound of shoeless footsteps; it’s apparent everyone upstairs is being mindful, but if you’re sensitive to noise this might be noticeable; also, we’re not that tall (5’9”, 5’7”) but if we were much taller, there are some low clearance areas at the entrance and in a small part of the walkway of the apartment that might be a bit of an obstacle. Overall it was a very comfortable experience which we were eager to let our relatives who live in Vancouver know about as reference for other friends and family.

About the Host, Laura
We have been living in the Cambie area of Vancouver for the past 20 years and have owned this residence since 1996. We have watched this area blossom into a vibrant exciting neighborhood with exceptional transit convenience to the city center and surrounding areas of interest.
We often take advantage of the many eateries close by on Main st. and love to share a glass of fine red wine. We enjoy walks at Queen Elizabeth & Stanley Park as well as strolls or bike rides along the waterfront at Granville Island and False Creek. We have a very friendly dog that loves to fetch a ball on land or in the water.
We have also been spending our vacation time in the Okanagan for the past 20 years as well and just finished building a cabin on the water in Kelowna in 2011. We have decided to rent it out on a weekly basis during the summer months and monthly for the 9 mos starting October 1 through June 30. We would love to host your stays in both Vancouver and Kelowna/Vernon if your holiday plans permit.
We have met many interesting people from all over the world through this experience and look forward to hosting your stay and assisting you in maximizing the enjoyment of your time in Vancouver and/or in Kelowna.
