HELLO AND WELCOME!
Stay in a colourful, full of art condo, with a designer/artist hostess (me) in the heart of Vancouver. Your private, king-bed room is rather small but cozy. The white armoir, on the picture, would be for you. I would like to leave my belongings in the closet and on the shelves.
You can use the entire space and eventually an extra person could stay for an extra charge.
Most probably one more person (could be me) would be staying in the second bedroom, so remember that you will be sharing the space with other(s).
I am glad to help if you need information or tips on how to get around or what to do in Vancouver. I have an extra bike and you are welcome to use it since bicycle paths are great here and you can see a lot just biking around.
I am glad to offer you tea or coffee in the morning, the rest you will have to find in the store downstairs. It is a great Chinese market just below, which offers a big variety of yummy foods including sushi and dumplings. Next to it is an Italian restaurant, Starbucks and other coffee shops just across the street. I have a large balcony where you may find fresh tomatoes, parsley and green peas if you come before I eat them all. You are welcome to cook for yourself in my kitchen and use my spices.
LOCATION: The location is great: just in front of Stadium Sky-train (tube or subway) station, which means you can get here straight from the airport in about 45 minutes and save $40 on one way trip. If you are coming by car, I have a parking space for visitors. If you stay longer than 7 days, there will be a parking fee of $70/month.
AMENITIES: You are welcome to use the indoor pool, sauna, hot-tub, gym, and ping-pong table in the building and there is a large garden outside. The apartment has wireless internet. You can do your laundry using my in-suite washer & dryer, but under my supervision.
WHERE TO GO: You will be living 3 minutes away from Gastown, the historic part of Vancouver, where restaurants and bars are open until late. You will be at the gate of wonderful Chinatown and a few minutes walking distance from the business district. You are a 30 minute bus ride away from the mountains or the ferry terminal.
LANGUAGES: If you prefer to communicate in other languages, I also speak French, Polish, Spanish, Romanian, Hungarian, some Russian and German.
I have traveled to Asia, Europe and Africa, but I am always interested in your travel stories. I love meeting people and getting to know them.
If you play guitar, I would love you to play it. I may sing, but I the chances are rather small!
I would prefer you to be a woman, but a kind and considerate man would also be welcome to stay.

Квартира нам очень понравилась – уютная, чистая и обставлена с художественным вкусом. Расположение великолепное, квартира находится в центре старого города. Рядом: метро, остановки автобусов, магазины, кино и кабинет русского зубного врача. Но больше всего нам понравилась хозяйка квартиры. Такого хорошего, доброго и приятного человека не так уж часто и встретишь. Она нам очень помогла во всём, даже один день мы с ней сделали экскурсию по городу на велосипедах, что было просто замечательно и ксати. Вообще, мы себя чувствовали как дома. Изабелла поллиглот, она знает польский, румынский, венгерский, французский,английский, испанский, немного понимает по русски. С нашим плохим английским это было очень кстати.
El apartamento tiene excelente ubicación muy cerca de la estación del metro. El apartamento es lindo con una decoración artística de buen gusto y original. El limpio y acogedor. Izabella es una muy buena y amable persona y excelente anfitriona. Nos ayudó mucho a conocer la ciudad y también en asuntos pendientes que teníamos en Vancouver. Fue un placer de conocerla. Isabella habla muchas idiomas incluyendo español.
I had a lovely time during my stay in Vancouver as Izabela was a friendly and hospitable host. I felt welcome from her and her artwork upon my arrival and immediately fell in love with the place. She is also an amazing source of information if you are in need of finding your way around the city. A great condo in the perfect location. There is a supermarket downstairs if you need to shop for groceries. The Skytrain station is also a block away. I enjoyed getting to know Izabela as she has a big heart. We had numerous long talks about our stories and adventures; it felt as if we were friends. Thanks for everything, Izabela! I enjoyed spending my Thanksgiving weekend at your place. Your place is definitely one of a kind!
The stay was for my friend & coworker Prasheed. Prasheed has told me wonderful things about Izabela and his stay in her room. The apartment and room were clean, nicely decorated. The most important thing is that Izabela was an amazing host, friendly, offered valuable advice and assistance to Prasheed. Thank you!!
Izabela is a gracious, charming and very helpful host. Her apartment is centrally located which makes it a convenient jumping off spot for all of Vancouver's sights. You'll enjoy your stay at Izabela's whimsical pad and her lovely swimming pool too!
Izabela is a wonderful and very charming person! She is a great host. She helped us a lot by finding the right bus en giving tips. She made coffee and even mojito for us. The appartment is very nice and the location couldn't be better. I would definitely recommend it!
We never met Izabela but the stay was very enjoyable : very good location, at two steps of the subway, small but cosy room and perfect building with a swimming pool, a jacuzzi and a sauna. I recommend.
Die Wohnung von Izabela ist in einem modernen Hochhaus Nähe Gastown. In der 6. Etage hat sie eine kleine, mit Kunstobjekten gefüllte Wohung. Terasse, Gym, Pool - alles da.
Alles in allem, eine kleine Wohung die ziemlich ideal im Stadtzentrum liegt.
We had a great time staying in Izabela's condo! The room is cozy, but perfectly fit our needs. The rest of the condo is amazing, including an outdoor patio space, comfy living room and kitchen, and gym, pool, and hot tub for use! As a bonus, Izabela also let us use her bikes, which was perfect for exploring Vancouver. The location is unbeatable--close to things downtown and conveniently located. Even though Izabela was out of town, she had a friend come and greet us with directions, which was a great touch and super helpful. Definitely the perfect place for those visiting Vancouver!
Het appartement ligt heel gunstig. Vrijwel alles is van hieruit met openbaar vervoer te bereiken. Skytrain stopt bijna voor de deur. Je kunt vanaf het appartement lopen naar Gastown, China Town en de haven. Supermakrt vlakbij. Mooi zwembad.
Het appartement is wel erg klein. Zeer origineel ingericht. Omdat badkamer gedeeld moest worden met andere huurder, was er te weinig privacy. Een dergelijke combinatie is beslist niet aan te bevelen
Leuk balkonnetje met planten, kruiden en (slecht zittende) stoelen.
Gastvrouw was na een dag weg, maar had een plaatsvervangster aangesteld met wie eventueel overlegd kon worden. Izabela was heel gemakkelijk met gebruik van wasmachine, droger. Hebben ook de 2 fietsen kunnen gebruiken, met helm uiteraard!
We enjoyed our stay at Izabella's apartment. Situated downtown it was easy to get to all the places we wanted to go. The apartment itself was well lived in and felt like a home, but immaculate for our stay. The apartment has everything one might need such as utilities, fully equipped kitchen etc. and it was great to have access to the pool and jacuzzi downstairs. Izabella is an artist so the place is wonderfully bright and colourful, and she has designed some of the furniture. She was busy during our stay but she still welcomed us and gave us lots of tips and pointers for things to do in the city.
We would whole-heartedly recommend staying here.
