Although we love animals, it's a no pet apartment rental.
This is exactly the kind of place you dream about staying in on Airbnb. The hosts were incredibly friendly, responsive and made me feel at home. The listing is literarily 3 minutes to the water and amazing restaurants. It is a huge unit, with an amazing book and movie library and everything else you would need to enjoy Kitsilano. I will most certainly be back.
This was a return stay with The Vancouver Connection - and we were so happy to be back! The location is just amazing - a few minutes out the door, and we could get great coffee, sushi, groceries, and walk to the water. The neighbourhood is pretty and quiet, and the apartment itself has every necessity, including a washer and dryer, and is very comfortable and private. Our hosts were very accommodating of our changing numbers. Thank you!
We absolutely loved staying at Michel's place in Vancouver! Our entire family of 5 stayed here, even though there is just one real bed, because the place is quite spacious, and Michel provided comfortable mattresses and bedding for our kids. It's clear from the photos how beautifully constructed and decorated it is. There is a also a sweet little patio just outside the door with reclining chairs. I felt so relaxed out there, reading and having a glass of wine, in the afternoon sun. It is a short walk to one of the most spectacular views of the bay and the city. The whole area is wonderful, with lots of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. It is easy to park right out front too. Michel was a great host. I highly recommend this apt!
We very much enjoyed our stay. Our host Michel was very friendly and welcoming. He accommodated an early arrival to drop our bags and when we returned later that day, there was refreshing lemon water waiting for us. Some of the highlights of our stay were the fantastic shower, the fuse ball table, a great movie selection and a very ideal location close to great restaurants, public transit and the beach. Thank you for your hospitality Michel!!!
Michel is a wonderful host. Nothing too much trouble and very helpful with ideas of what to do, where to go and to eat. Highly recommended. Just a stone's throw from both the waterfront and some of the best restaurants about.
For a top tip, try to book at table (in advance) at the Italian just around the corner on 4th. Absolutely incredible food. We had a 7 course blind menu, so we didn't know what we'd get next and it was all astounding. The name: La Quercia.
Thanks Michel and see you again soon, sir!
Michel's place made our Vancouver trip extra great! Michel made sure the room is warm everyday before we return from outside, it felt very cozy when we came back from snowy outside! He also has amazing collection of movies, we'd pick a movie or two from DVD shelf to watch at night over a glass of wine or Canadian gingerbread whiskey :) The bed is super comfortable too, and that amazing shower, whoa! you have to stay there to experience the shower if you are visiting Vancouver, trust me! The location is perfect, just two or three blocks away from the Jericho Beach Park which is beautiful with panorama view of downtown Vancouver. I'd like to come back stay here again some time!
