Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed at Lili's apartment for 3 nights during a business trip to Vancouver. The apartment is very well situated, comfortable and well equipped. Lili is a gracious host, very helpful and accommodating. I appreciated she let me check out late and store my luggage until it was time to go to the airport. I would highly recommend both the apartment and Lili to anyone travelling to Vancouver. I certainly will book with Lili again.

  • All of the room is really nice.
    It's easy to handle the facility and good sightseeing.
    No problem during my trip in Vancouver.
    I'll choice this apartment if I go to downtown VC again.

  • Lili was a professional and accommodating hostess. I thought the presentations was true to internet discription and pictures. I will seek out one of her units when I return. I was very comfortable and the unit was clean and well equipped .

  • Really, what else is there to say. This is a great apt, in an amazing location, and lili was the perfect host. She was friendly, prompt, and very helpful, even willing to answer my questions long before our arrival date. We will absolutely stay here again on our next trip to Vancouver.

  • A very attractively designed, comfortable and well equipped apartment with fantastic views and everything you need for a great holiday. The location is excellent with easy access to all the great things that Vancouver has to offer. The building was quiet and secure with good communal facilities and Lili was there to greet me and to help me settle in. As I am in my 80s all of this was much appreciated.

  • Very convenient location and nice view.

    July 2013
  • This was our first trip to Vancouver and we couldn't have been happier. The condo was a great place to stay - the perfect location for everything. It was bright and modern, clean and comfy. Lili was gracious and very helpful - don't have a single complaint. Will definitely stay again the next time we visit this beautiful and exciting city.

    July 2013
  • Bright and Beautiful Downtown was exactly as described. The view from the 14th floor is stunning. The apartment was immaculate and looks just as it is depicted in photos. The building is centrally located, so is within walking distance of most everything downtown. We even walked with our luggage to the cruise ship. It was downhill and took about 15 min. Lili was very helpful and a delight to deal with. She was prompt in answering every question we had. We are thinking of returning to Vancouver for a longer stay since the city has much to offer. We would rent from Lili again in a heartbeat!

    July 2013
  • Lili was extremely helpful and always available to communicate with whether it was needing parking instructions or just details of our checkout and check-in. Everything was delivered as expected, no surprises. The apartment, at the corner of Burrard & Nelson, was immaculate with everything you'd ever need: office supplies, laundry, kitchen, cleaning, etc... Waaay better than staying in a hotel. And cheaper! Just down the street is the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver which would be one of the most expensive hotels in Vancouver. So just consider you're saving $300/night!!! Same location. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her or this unit.

I'm an Airbnb veteran, hosting since July 2010 and loving every minute of it. I do a lot of volunteering, namely as the vice-president of Vancouver Latin American Cultural Centre, Director of Programming for Projecting Change Film Festival, and sit on the board of the Brazilian Consulate's Citizen Council. I immigrated from Brazil to Vancouver 6 years ago and Ken, my partner, is the chief film critic of the Georgia Straight, Vancouver's weekly entertainment newspaper. Ken's son lives with us and works at a local movie theatre while attending college. As you can imagine, we watch more movies in one year than most people in their whole lives! I love cooking and baking with the great local products we find here. I totally fell in love with Vancouver as soon as I got here, and I'm sure you will, too. (Or maybe you are returning for a visit and know exactly what I'm talking about!) You will find a clean and comfortable apartment at the perfect location to explore the city, and I will do my best to make your stay enjoyable and stress-free. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Hope to see you soon! Lili
