Jeanette was very welcoming, room was clean and well kept and the house was very convenient for shops/restaurants/public transport.
Jeanette is a good host and her son too. I had a good month staying in this house. The house is really big and the kitchen is not always perfectly clean but it depends on the people lives there and Jeanette does all her best. The accommodation is in a really good position close to Granville st. and a lot of cafès, public transportations and supermarkets.
I recommend this place.
Jeanette was a wonderful host, always helpful and nice. I had a great four months staying in this house. The neighbourhood is great, the public transportation is close. I can just recommend this accommodation! Thank you Jeanette!
I had a great time staying in Jeanette's house. My room was large with it's own en suite toilet and sink and it's own fridge to store your food. You are also provided with towels, toilet paper, hair dryer, basic toiletries and wifi access. Showers were shared between 2/3 people and were clean and tidy. The shared kitchen has all the equipment you need. Jeanette and the other residents were all very friendly and happy to chat. The location of the house was ideal for me as I am a UK medical student who was on placement at Vancouver General Hospital which is less that 10mins walk away. The area is very safe and quiet yet close to shops, transport links and attractions like Granville island. The rent is very reasonable compared to others in Vancouver, from personal experience I would highly recommend staying here. Vancouver is a great city and this was a comfortable and convenient place to stay.
I had a very enjoyable experience staying at Jeanette's. My room was big enough and clean. I was provided with towels and toilet paper. The location is great... 8 min away from the bus stop at Granville street with bus #10 running 24 hours (limited service from 1am). Jeanette was super friendly, chatty and will always try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Lots of rooms in this house with lovely roommates who you get to know especially at night during dinner. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay close to downtown but yet in a quiet, safe, clean and beautiful neighborhood. Prices are lower than the average for this posh area, take it!!
Best of wishes Jeanette.... :)....... Fran
My first experience and I would do it again. Great location, very basic accommodations (but that's what I paid for), clean, safe and comfortable feel, a free place to park and a very nice interaction with the owner.
I had no idea what to expect. It is a large house with owners living on the third floor and rooms for rent (tenants) on the other floors. I just used it for a place to sleep, but the folks I encountered were nice.
Overall, a good experience. I had a nice walk to Grandville Island, and it's a couple of blocks from a nice bakery/deli. A good neighborhood.
Sarah's mother patiently helped me with directions to Sarah's place, greeted me upon my arrival, and took me to my room which was on the 2nd floor. The room came with a bar fridge, desk and chair, 2 closets, dresser, easychair, and single bed. Towels and toilet paper were provided. Great stay and location if traveling on a low budget and are OK making own meals (breakfast not included) and sharing bathroom/shower. Need own hand soap and toiletries for bathroom/shower and need to remember to take toilet paper, towel, and hand soap from room whenever using bathroom facilities. Nice upgraded showers - there are 2 bathrooms with showers on the 2nd floor. My room was in a surprisingly quiet multi-room building where I could visit with other guests in the common areas or not. Met some great people and thoroughly enjoyed the conversations we were able to share. Felt like hostel living with a private room. Walked to and from Granville Island one day and then on another day, purchased a bus pass for the day and took public transportation to various tourist attractions, i.e. Stanley Park, Gastown, etc.- this was a great way to save on parking and gas and bus money. Easy access to bus stops. The building is across from a school, so it can be a bit noisy during school hours, but it did not bother me because I was away during most of the daytime hours and part of my stay was over a weekend. There is a wonderful deli and a grocery store close by. I would stay here again. Thank you, Sarah and mom, for your hospitality and for providing an opportunity to stay in one of your rooms.
