Simply fantastic. A perfect location and a seriously beautiful apartment. Best of all, Kristy thought of everything! Her attention to detail is amazing. Not only was the apartment stocked with everything you need, but she also put little sticky labels on everything, including sticky labels in a guide book for Vancouver. Everything about the apartment is upscale and the parking spot for our rental car was extremely convenient. The rooftop has an amazing panoramic view of the city and the overall location is fantastic. The apartment is within walking distance of great restaurants, breweries, and public transit. Breakfast at The Whip across the street was delicious. My wife and son loved the Tofu Scramble. We had the best time. Thank you Kristy! :-)
Kristy was sweet enough to welcome us on a very late arrival. She answered all of our immediate questions and also left a note with more thorough info and a list of their local favorites.
The apartment is just as presented. The towels were amazingly thick and soft (I don't usually comment on towels...) and the water pressure was great. The bed was a little soft for my taste (but it's all relative, right?). The apartment was cute and very tidy.
The location was perfect! We enjoyed walking up and down main st, enjoying a brewery or two along the way. We also hit up The Whip across the street. The staff there were so funny, sweet, and friendly. Highly recommend giving them a visit.
I would definitely stay with Kristy and Steve again.
I stayed in Vancouver for 8 nights and rent this flat for 3 peoples (adults).
The condo was perfect for us. It is very cosy and we felt at home during our stay. It is very well equipped (oven, microwave, dishwasher, a big table for family dinner).
It is very clean and bright (in winter, so I cannot imagine in summer !!).
Otherwise, owner are kind, thoughtful, helpful and punctual.
In a word, perfect. If I return to Vancouver, I would like to book this condo again !!
Kristy's condo is a quiet, comfortable, wonderful place to stay! (The in-building gym was an added bonus.) Her condo is in a fabulous location close to great coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques and public transit. Kristy was a very friendly, accommodating and hospitable host.
Staying at Kirsty's was great- really central, nice neighbourhood, good transport links ( sky train and bus) and a really good base for exploring the city. It's cosy- and has everything you need. Great space for a couple-or a couple and a baby in our case!
Our Host was thoughtful, in constant contact and even meet us late in the evening to hand over the keys and explain the arrangements. Well organized with written explanation on neighborhood, i.e. places to eat, shops, tourist pamphlets, and how to leave the apartment / garage.
She was gracious to purchase coffee capsules for use. The unit was clean, tidy and fully equipped.
We had a wonderful time at Kristy and Steve´s apartment. We felt right at home. It is a cozy apartment and we loved it, it looks great and it was so clean and well prepared it felt like being in a fancy hotel. The apartment is beautiful, the kitchen and bathroom are very modern and have about everything u can imagine. They left us a lovely note with practical information and all sorts of advice on where to go in Vancouver and the neighbourhood around the apartment. The area of the apartment has a lot of nice shops, a trendy area.
We got a warm welcome and everything was perfect. Thank you Kristy and Steve for a wonderful stay in Vancouver!
