We werden hartelijk verwelkomd door Jenny. (Incl. lekkers bij de koffie
Jenny and Steve are great. They like kids from the bottom of their hearts. I had great experience staying at " my" place. If you like to cook or like to make a fresh coffee just like what you do at home, please go for it. You do not have to change your lifestyle while traveling. Thank you, Jenny and Steve.
We had a wonderful time staying at Jenny's apt. It was conveniently located just out of downtown, with easy parking and quick access to everything we wanted to see/eat. The unit is spacious, clean and comfortably appointed with beautiful artwork and comfy furniture. Jenny went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. We will definitely be going back.
This was a fabulous place! Every detail was looked after, everything provided to have a great stay, very comfortable ... and there is a (free) place to park your car in front of the house, that is a true luxury in Vancouver!
We stayed just for the night in Jenny's 2 BDR. We liked that the neighborhood was close to restaurants and shopping. Parking was a breeze. The apartment was clean and spacious.
It's not super fancy but Jenny does a great job of making sure you have everything you need: lots of clean linens, coffee, a corkscrew, a comfy couch, wifi and bathroom products.
She made sure to put fresh cream in the fridge which was a really nice touch.
We had a great stay in Vancouver! The place was very cosy and homely and Jenny was a great host. Very responsive and even left us a fresh bun on arrival. Easy check in and basics such as tea and coffee all provided. We did at times find it a little noisy at night and public transport/taxis are required to comfortably get to downtown. We would definitely stay here again though.
