Interaction with Guests
I will try to be around to let you into the house and give a tour. We are very busy and have very sporadic schedules so you may see us a lot or not at all. This house is shared so if you have any questions on where to go JUST ASK! We are full of local recommendations for good eats, drinks, markets,shopping, art, music, venues, and events that are happening around our city.
Quiet neighbourhood but close to anything you could want, (check out the guidebook). Mount Pleasant is a cool neighbourhood full of lovely places to eat, drink, shop and have fun.
Close to hipsters' Main street and near to the hippie paradise of Commercial Drive. Gastown area is a short bus ride away for a happening evening. Downtown is easily accessible (10-15 minutes on bus) Yet you get to experience east Vancouver culture in a very cool and safe neighbourhood.

Sarah was definitely good in managing to be in touch. She was responding quickly via emails. Even though she was not home when I came, she made sure that I can get it safely. The place is in nice area, the house is a little bit older, but it has everything what you need for a stay. Moreover, Sarah is really great in knowing her neighbourhood and she recommended me buses/post office...
Had a great time at Sarah's. Was a funky little base for me to have while exploring Vancouver for a few days. Was very central and close to a great public transport. A nice and firm bed, cool breeze through the window and my own space made it an ideal place for me.
We have been a little bit disappointed by the house as our experience did not match with other comments. Even though it is very well located, the house is old with an old house smell. Sarah was very responsive by email prior to our arrival and made it easy for us in her absence with clear instructions about the keys and advices in the areas. However we have not been really welcomed and her roommate did not even leave his room to say hello when we arrived. Also there is no breakfast offered, which is the first time in our Airbnb experience.
My partner and I had a great time here. Beautiful balcony, good lighting, close proximity to restaurants, and (though Sarah wasn't there) her roommate showed us such a good time!
Sarah was very sweet and accommodating. She was enthusiastic about her city and gave great recommendations for places to visit in her neighborhood. Her home is adorable and super cozy with live plants and art spotted about. The location is perfectly situated within walking distance of super cute cafes, tasty restaurants and funky bars. There are parks everywhere and the city is very bike able. I highly recommend staying here and can't wait to come back myself!
Sarah was a good host and her roomie was very friendly. She made the checkin easy and was around if we needed anything. We had a really good week at the Van. Special and can only recommend the place and neighbourhood.
