  • Sandra's place is fabulous! It is exactly as pictured and immaculate. The kitchen is amazing, complete with an espresso machine, perfect white cups, espresso spoons, coffee maker, gas stove and state of the art appliances. The neighborhood is trendy with plenty of free parking and easy access to Main Street, downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park, Granville Island and all parts of Vancouver. The bed is super comfortable as are the pillows and bedding. There's a private terrace and tons of light. We loved Sandra's place and highly recommend staying there.

  • Our stay was phenomenal! Everything was exactly what we expected, definitely did not want to leave it was so great. The lighting of the condo, the space, the neighborhood everything was perfection! My boyfriend and I love our beer, we asked Sandra on where we could possibly do some beer tasting. She gave us all the perfect spots, with in a few bocks of each other we where able to walk to 3 different breweries and hit some amazing sushi while at it. The area was definitely our vibe and the locals where amazing towards us as well!

    Sandra was a fabulous host who knows her way around the city and knew how to make us feel right at home, I couldnt of asked for a more perfect stay! :)

  • Sandra's condo was beautiful: modern, clean, and trendy. It was also very centrally located and near many shops, restaurants, and bus routes. Sandra was very flexible and allowed us to check in early and check out late. She was also highly responsive by email. Recommended!

  • This place is what Airbnb is all about! We had a perfect experience here. Sandra welcomed us and gave us a tour of her home and provided great notes to refer to for the house and the neighborhood. Super friendly host.

    The home matches the photos online. Perfect presentation and clean and very comfortable. We loved the leafy balcony off the upstairs bedroom. The street is quiet but just steps away from Main Street which has loads of great cafés, restaurants and bars. Transit to downtown is all very close by.

    Mount pleasant is a gorgeous neighborhood. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. All in all, a perfect Airbnb experience. Thank you!

  • A very attractive and comfortable condo in a great location. Everything you need and all in perfect condition. Cheery with good light. Wi-fi, chocolate bar, local guides are all bonuses. Will definitely recommend to friends

  • My boyfriend and I came over from Vancouver Island to visit friends and organize some future travel plans, and we decided to try out our airbnb account this time. We would normally stay in hotels in the downtown area. Never again! Sandra's place was amazing! Very modern, bright, and also cozy. It's also located in such a cool area of town that you wouldn't normally see if you stayed downtown. Everything you made need is close by, and if you're not sure of what's what, Sandra was super helpful with recommending nearby restaurants or stores to check out. Definitely would stay again :)

  • Sandra was a wonderful AirBnb host! She met us at the house, and went over a few local recommendations, as well as showed us how a few things in the house worked. I felt like I could contact her at any time if I had trouble, but luckily there were no issues. Sandra was also a great communicator, keeping in contact as we updated our arrival time due to border crossing delays.

    The house itself is a beautiful, modern home full of light coming in from windows that circle all around. It's clean, well kept, and the perfect place to come home to after wandering around the city all day. Location-wise, it was in a perfect spot close to main street, which was full of coffee shops, shopping, and an awesome bagel shop. We couldn't have asked for a better first stay in Vancouver!

  • Sandra's place was the BEST! I'm always sad to leave Vancouver, but this trip especially... The location is superb, and the condo was immaculate, bright, spacious, and pretty much perfect in every way. Sandra is a delight as well. Can't wait for my next visit! :)

About
I'm a farm-raised city girl living in Vancouver for over 22 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, hockey 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, so if you don't meet me when you check in (which I hope I do), I'm likely off traveling myself!
