This was an excellent place to stay. Ria was charming and helpful. The apartment is spotless. The room has a wonderful view of the mountains. The room was small but well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. I will stay here again the next time I'm in Vaacouver.
Ria is a great helpful hostess. The accommodations were very helpful. I would definitely go back. Thanks Ria
Thank you Ria for your welcome! It was a great pleasure to meet you. You are a very nice host.
Hope to see you in town. All the best, Marine.
Ria was very nice, great location and apartment!
Awesome stay at Ria's place while I was moving to Vancouver. She was very welcoming. Great location in Kitsilano. Just think of all the luck you've got to have found this place
I highly recommend Ria's place to anyone.
I booked very last minute (less than 36 hours before I needed a place) - she was very quick at responding to my request and the room was ready for me when I arrived.
She is so friendly and great to hang out with and chat to.
I unfortunately broke my arm the day before I went to stay at Ria's and she was so nice in helping me out in my new one-armed situation!
Great location, clean apartment and a quality host. Great value for money.
I have never felt so at home while traveling. Ria is a fantastic host, the apartment is very well located and sooo comfortable! I hardly wanted to leave at all... :)
We spent 6 days in Ria's appartment which is very cute and cosy. The view in the bedroom is beautifull! The neighborhood (Kitsilano) is awesome ; it's closed to the sea and to center by bus, it's quiet, there are amazing restaurants and some shops...
Ria is welcoming, benevolent, accommodating and sweet.
I really recommend it !
Nice pad, great host perfect for my needs!
Really close to the water and any kind of food you desire.
Mis is awesome and her place was perfect! This is a great walkable neighborhood close to a plethora of restaurants and shops. I really didn’t find parking to be an issue whatsoever. The apartment itself had ample space, was super clean, and easy to check-in/check-out with Mia’s detailed instructions beforehand. I would highly recommend and definitely plan on staying here again!! Thanks Mia!!
