About this listing
We've moved! We've had lots of wonderful guests in Mission, and we'd love it if you'd follow us to our new home. Please look for Kusa's Place Abbotsford to book in.
We are great hosts who love having new people in our home. We have a relaxed style, and are generally happy and easy going. Parking, internet and cable are provided, along with anything else you might need.
The bedroom is on the main floor, a little bit quieter than the upper level. There is a TV in the room, but you are welcome to be as social or not, as you like.
Guests can do as they like, but please coordinate schedules with the hosts, especially for mealtimes. You are free to use the kitchen, or potluck with us, or we can try to recommend a local diner to you. There's a fabulous diner called Rocko's which has the most amazing milkshakes, a great Sushi restaurant and there is even a place here in Mission serving authentic Korean food.
We live in a family orientated neighbourhood, there is a small mall about a 5 minute walk down the hill with a few small shops and eateries. There is a bus stop there as well.
There is lots of hiking and trails nearby, and a small museum, along with other attractions such as Vancouver Skydiving, and the Fraser River Safari. The view from Westminster Abbey is a must-see, and there is a local fishery that has a pond where two large sturgeon can be seen.
The bright sunny kitchen is available to use, as is the large library, the yard, and the family room. You're welcome to make yourself at home!
Interaction with Guests
That depends! I'm usually around and happy to share meals, or even play tour guide to some great local sights, as long as the guests don't mind having my playful boys along! If the guest is more of the quiet type or is in town for schooling, they are welcome to stay by themselves and relax or study.
I know and love so many of my neighbours! They are a great bunch of people!
Yes, a bus stop is a short walk up or down the hill. It is a hill however, the walk up is definitely a walk up! All but one of my guests have arrived by car.
Other Things to Note
We do get busy in the summer, time to book in!
Please be respectful of all other guests and allow for the quirks of the youngest residents of the house. Pitching in to clean up will be appreciated in proportion to the mess that you bring with you. We usually take our shoes off in the house. We can make some room for you in the fridge if you bring food with you, but it's not huge, so please be prepared to look for things or juggle things around to make everything fit.
The Boynton's are a friendly and welcoming family. Everything was exactly as the listing said, very clean and neat. They are fun and kind people with great kids. You'll be sure to have a good stay.
We had such a lovely stay at Carissa's even though It was only a night! Her home is beautiful, spacious and cozy. She was very warm and welcoming, and Immediately made us feel at home. She gave us tips about the US border crossings, and other little travel tips for our next day at Seattle which was extremely helpful! The room is clean and comfortable and accommodated the three of us perfectly. I had a wonderful time staying with her and would highly recommend it to anyone :) Thanks Carissa.
Beautiful house perched on a hill with great amenities such as a karge back deck. The accommodations were as described. We were out most of the time so didn't talk at length, but Carrissa was a friendly and thoughtful host.
Carissa was gracious and accommodating despite our late arrival. The morning after we arrived we planned to go out for breakfast but to our delight and surprise, she had already made a delicious breakfast for us! We enjoyed a lovely conversation about travel and life experiences. The room is clean and conveniently close to the door, making it easy to access. We highly recommend staying with Carissa!
My dad and me started our 2 week trip in Vancouver and went to Mission to stay at Kusa's place. We were warmly welcomed, Carissa is so friendly and helpful. The house and room is perfect, clean and spacious. The neighbourhood is safe and it's easy to park the car next to the house. Easy to find also. I can definitely recommend Kusa's place to all travellers passing through Canada, thank you Carissa.
Mission is beautiful and so is this home on the hill above the river. Carissa is a congenial, professional, and generous host and the room was clean and private. I would strongly recommend this AirBNB berthing to anyone visiting the area.

About the Host, Carissa
We live in Abbotsford, BC and enjoy hosting and meeting new people. Our family grows and shrinks by degrees, depending on who we are currently hosting, and for how long. We often host International students, and have had the pleasure of being temporary parents to kids from Japan, China, Luxemburg and Germany. We have three boys of our own, three backyard chickens, and a pretty white cat named May. All that adds up to sounding like a pretty noisy house, but we are actually fairly calm and quiet. Our guests are starting to come back now for repeat visits and we love that! If you are in need of accommodation in Mission, Abbotsford, or even a little farther, please consider us as a great destination!
