Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great stay in this appartment which looks like the Aibnb pictures! Clean, well furnished and a comfortable bed. It is also very well located in Vancouver DownTown near to the Vancouver Convention Centre where we had to go for business (10 mn by walk) and also close to many shops and restaurants. Phil & Kristy were very nice and took me back to the airport! Thanks!

  • I travel for work quite a bit and this place is the best Airbnb rental I have ever had! The apartment was bright and the hospitality was so lovely! Perfectly located and hosted warmly by Phil and Kirsty who met us at the apt and allowed us to drop off our bags early. The apt is clean, inviting and has everything you can need and more while still remaining open and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and the downtown Christmas lights were lovely to see as dusk became night. We loved the city views and unlike New York, the traffic of Vancouver was not loud but instead, entertaining, from the 4th floor. There is a great grocery store across from the apt and an awesome movie theatre right down stairs and everything else was walkable or reachable by buses (which are also just a block or so away). It's hard to imagine a better located apartment, and there is no need for a car here. If you plan to bus a lot get a day pass from London Drugs and if you want some local fun go to see the less expensive minor league hockey team, the Giants (20 minute bus ride away). Most of all, the apartment will be a warm and attractive and comfortable refuge to return to and Phil and Kirsty are great renters to be in community with!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Phil and Kirsty's apartment. When they greeted us were immediately felt comfortable. They were very thorough with instructions and were happy to answer any questions we had. The apartment was lovely-it was perfect for my partner and myself. It is very central to everything we needed-shopping, movie theatre, supermarket, restaurants etc and for the other attractions that were a little further away, we were happy to walk there anyway (Stanley park, Granville island). If you're looking for a neat and tidy space and well priced while in Vancouver, this place will be perfect.

  • A truely wonderful Airbnb experience! The apartment us exactly as shown in the photos, very spacious and bright, fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook a meal or even live here!

    Our dealings with Phil were fantastic! He was quick to respond and even offered to pick us up from the airport as our flight arrived late I the evening. He gave us a very detailed briefing of the property and was quick to respond to any queries we had.

    The location of the apartment is fantastic. There are plenty of amenities nearby and a short walking distance to anything you would want to see in Vancouver.

    An absolutely fantastic experience! We didn't want to leave!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Phil and Kirsty's apartment. The place was exactly as it shows in the photos...clean, comfortable,nicely decorated and a really good size for a one bedroom in the city. The location is in the centre of the city, everything you need is literally a few steps away. We would definitely stay here again in the future and highly recommend it to anyone.

  • A home away from home, we couldn't have been more comfortable. Phil and Kirsty ensure you have everything you need for a pleasant stay and are easy to contact if you need anything. A brilliant spot to explore all Vancouver has to offer and easy to get around via bus or train or simply walking. We would stay again next time we are in Vancouver. We loved our three weeks here.

  • Small, very nice apartment with supermarket 1 block away and lots of shops and restaurants all around. The apartment shows a higher level of attention to detail than most rental properties. Feels close to homey, with modern, neutral interior decorating and touches like jars of qtips and cotton balls in the bathroom and a laundry basket and soap. My very early arrival and departure were readily accommodated. This positive a review needs to include a criticism to be credible, preferably one that's a little quirky, so here's mine: I wish the toilet were the larger, oblong kind... /d

    Response from Phil & Kirsty:

    Hi Dave, We concur about the toilets!! We are planning to put in two "oval" style toilets in our own home, maybe we should set up the order for three, including the latest slow close seats/lids. We were delighted to have you stay, maybe if we have a next time you will find the more up-market toilet in place! Best regards and good luck, Phil & Kirsty.

  • It was my first using Airbandb and I was a bit skeptical at first, but everything went smoothly. I booked this unit for my parents for 2 weeks. Phil and Kirsty were great hosts and made sure my parents and I were happy with the unit. The location is great, the unit is exactly as shown on the photos and it comes with everything you will need. My parents would definitely stay there again!
