  • We had a great stay in Kathrinas bright apartment. A beautiful wide view, very quiet, only with the sound of the seagulls in the background. An ideal position to discover Vancouver, not so touristic area. Close to English Bay Beach, also Stanley Park and even Kitsiliano is not far away.

  • The location is absolutely amazing and we loved the view. This place was perfect for us! A word to the wise, get an international plan for a month if you are not from Canada!

    August 2013
  • Excellent location away from "tourist" Vancouver and great access to beach and Stanley Park. Easy access to supermarket, restaurants and buses. Katrina a friendly host and responded quickly to queries. No microwave and reading lights in bedroom. Photos accurate but cleanliness could have been improved. Would use this apartment again as the location was perfect for us.

  • Katrina was super friendly and very accommodating during my visit to Vancouver last month. She is very responsive to emails prior to the visit as well as texting when I was lost in Vancouver :)

  • We had a great experience in Katrina's West End Gem. She was easy to communicate with, accommodating with our schedule in terms of check in/out times and the apartment was everything she promised. The location is fabulous, we were able to rent bikes just down the street and used them to get around town. Perfect for a couple. Highly recommended, and thank you Katrina!

  • We loved our stay at the West End Gem! It is so close to the beach and to Stanley Park and the view is wonderful. Katrina was very knowledgeable about the city and public transit options and her enthusiasm was contagious. We can't wait to return.

    July 2013
  • Katrina's apartment is awesome! It was super clean, very nicely decorated, had an awesome view and was in a great location. You could walk to Stanley Park and tons of great restaurants close by. My GF and I couldn't have asked for a better spot. Katrina graciously dealt with our uncertainty on arrival time as well. Awesome airbnb host.

    July 2013
  • The location of the apartment was great. It was so easy to get to the areas that we wanted to see. There was a bit of a mess with parking, as the spot that she had for guests was blocked by construction, so that was a little inconvenient for a few days.

    Katrina was very accommodating with our check in time and helped us get settled (which was a pain with the amount of stuff required for 2 kids)

    The apartment had enough space for our family though and had most things we needed (although some basic kitchen stuff was gone, like paper towels and salt and pepper)

    I recommend that if you are staying here with bikes, to use the bike room (even if it packed full), as the host said it would be ok to use the racks out front, but mine did get stolen (dont worry Katrina, I dont hold you responsible), after my lock was cut :(

Hello BnBer's! I was born and raised in downtown Vancouver and when I needed to move to a bigger city I headed to NYC and stayed for about 10 years. The beauty of Vancouver and the access to nature called me back a few years ago. I love to ride my bike and walk around as much as possible. I'm looking forward to meeting you and giving you tips of fun things to do while you are here!
