What a beautiful space! We were so lucky to stay at Sandy's condo. The location was perfect - spacious, clean and had all the amenities that we needed. I would not hesitate to stay at Sandy's place again!
Sandra was awesome, very warm and welcoming! She gave us information about the house to make our stay more enjoyable. Sandra also recommended a few of her favorite restaurants and pubs in the neighborhood. The townhouse looks just like the pictures. My favorite part of Sandra's home was the kitchen; spacious kitchen. I loved how the kitchen and family room joined. Prior to staying in this home, I stayed in a hotel in Downtown Vancouver. So this was a nice, quite neighborhood to slow down the pace. You can't beat having a bus stop just across the street to take you Downtown in only 12 minutes. I would definatley recommend staying here! Thank you again Sandra.

I had a great time at Sandra's Condo. It was just as nice and clean as it was in the pictures. Sandra greeted me with a warm welcome and gave me a quick tour of the space. The condo was in a great area as well with many food and entertainment options nearby.
Sandra met us at the house and gave us the guided walk through and let us be for the 4 nights we were there but was always an email or text away if we needed anything. Great place only steps from Heritage Hall where we were vending. Lots to do in the neighbourhood and only a 20 minute walk to the water and the Aqua Bus taking you to Granville Island and around. Highly recommended :)
Sandra's condo is a home away from home! The space was very clean, has a welcoming feeling with the vibrant interior decoration & artwork, and is located in a lovely neighbourhood. Sandra has done an amazing job of ensuring that her guests feel comfortable. We appreciated all of the small details! I would most definitely stay here again in the future!
We had such a fabulous stay in Sandra's wonderful place! Very comfortable, homey and stylish - close to lots of good food and great shops.
Our host left us a thoughtful list of favourite places, and many amenities (definitely appreciated the coffee and espresso machine!). Thanks Sandra for your hospitality and attention to detail to make a guest feel at home, we had a great week!
We stayed at Sandra's place for about 10 days and greatly enjoyed our stay. It was truly a home away from home. Strongly recommended! Sandra was very responsive in our correspondence. The checkin and checkout process was very smooth. She met us at the apartment upon checking and made us feel very welcomed. Her apartment is located in a lovely neighbourhood, cosy and spacious, with elegant interior design and a well equipped kitchen. It is immaculately clean and has everything we need. The place is filled with natural light due to its many windows. There are beautiful views of trees and a wonderful panoramic mountain view on the upper level of the apartment. After a full day exploring the city, it was nice to relax on the couch in the living room or on the bench by the window in the den upstairs, soaking in the mountain view. Thank you Sandra, we hope to come back one day!

I'm a farm-raised city girl living in Vancouver for over 23 years. I love to eat, play, travel and go wine tasting at home and when traveling. Getting to know the locals is what I'm about, so I love helping folks visiting my city on places to go and eat. I'm a very clean person (yes, I live this clean) and love to laugh. I also love playing and learning new sports and activities. My latest interests are playing golf, ice hockey, tennis and snowboarding.
I have traveled to Italy, Greece, Turkey, Costa Rica, NYC, California and did London, UK in 12 hours -- Heathrow to Heathrow :)
I have a long list of places yet to visit, and as a traveller I don't plan very far in advance. I've met many wonderful people as an AirBnB host and while travelling and look forward to many more adventures!
