About This Listing
Hi, my home is a 15 minute walk from Downtown Vancouver and a 10 minute walk from 2 nearby commuter trains to get you to/from the airport or several downtown stops.
Your bright 2nd floor room room has a queen sized Serta in pine bed frame with a matching pine wardrobe for your clothes. You have your own bathroom and access to second bathroom shower.
Amenities: wireless internet, antique desk in your room, living room has massive TV projector and sound system for a great movie watching experience! You are welcome to the kitchen and Sunday mornings I make guests pancakes(homemade and darn good!) I have pretty well all the basics for cooking if you like eating in.
Running/biking trails are just 5 minutes away and you can ride, roll or run right to our famous Stanley Park or the aquarium! Very cool Mt Pleasant neighborhood loaded with funky reasonably restaurants and pubs for the carnivore or vegetarian!
If you are a paraglider, I'm happy to escort you to the local training hill or lower mainland area launches if I am going flying.
Great location close to downtown and transportation("Car-to-go" is in the hood too!). I think you'll like my place!
An upcoming neighborhood for unique shops, eating, history and proximity to recreation trails. Two community fitness centres within walking distance. Also, 3 new microbreweries very close to me for beer lovers to try and at least 4 more within a half hours walk too!
Yes, use Translink website for easy bus planning.
No guests, late night movies okay, just switch from home theatre to projector speakers. Same goes for chatting, just keep it low after midnight. Bring your own beer/wine/spirits(although I'll likely share mine anyways!).
You have your own bathroom but the shower is upstairs in second bathroom. Get yourself all squeaky clean whenever you like, just do your powdering in your bathroom to keep the second one available to me or your second person.
Wash your dishes, I have a dishwasher for larger loads but prefer handwashing to cut down on water and waste.
No shoes in the house.
Kindly do a full laundry load rather than run the machines everyday.
Ask if you don't know.
Wil is a very friendly host, very welcoming and keen on making us feel at home. He was only here for a couple of days but gave us valuable advises on how to get around the area and Vancouver. The house is only a couple of minutes away from the sky train station or even false creek walk which is really nice ! Would definitely recommend Wil to a friend !
Wil made the house very welcoming, clean and tidy. The description was accurate and the instructions on how to find the property were good.
The property was located in a really convenient location, easy transport could walk to many of the local establishments. Centrally located, walking distance to sporting arenas.
Totally recommend. We hope to return again in the future.
A handful of times, I haven't been able to meet guests in person as I periodically have business out of town. I have to put complete trust in my guest, their profile and their past reviews. Maree is a fine example of why Airbnb has been such a top standard for me since I began. The house seemed barely touched by a guest. Obviously Maree and her friend house kept behind themselves when using all the amenities. Its quite wonderful to have such good guests with such strong character and appreciation.
Top shelf guests and recommended wholly to all other hosts!
Wil made sure my bedroom and the house were ready for my arrival. He gave me specific instructions on how to get there (inexpensively) from airport, where to run and where to grocery shop. He answered all my questions (ongoing) and made sure I felt that my needs were met. He basically told me to make myself at home...and I did :-)
Fast response upon inquiring, great location (5-10 min easy walk from SkyTrain station, simple and straight forward), affordable price. I can't complain.
I didn't get to meet Wil in person while I stayed, but he sent me directions ahead of time and we had no problem at all. I would gladly visit again.
My friend and I had a lovely stay in Vancouver at Wil's place. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it felt like home. Wil was gone for most of our stay, but he did recommend a few nearby restaurants and breweries before he left. I would not hesitate to stay at his place again!
We had a great time staying at Wil's place. Although we were double-booked with another guest, Wil went out of his way to fix the problem and make it work. We loved that his place was very convenient and close to downtown making it very accessible to get around. It's a nice, quiet neighborhood that's a few blocks from the waterfront.
Great place to stay! Was absolutely perfect for our stay. Close to all facilities and very comfortable room and apartment.
About the Host, Wil
Hi, I'm a self employed outdoors kind of guy. Easy going and a dandy sense of humor too! I'm busy but work for myself to try to get more time for myself rather than trying to get rich. All in all, I'm good company, especially in the summer if you paraglide, hike or even camp as I enjoy playing with like minded pals!
That's me[kinda sorta]
