Very friendly and welcoming diverse heritage neighbourhood where many houses are over 100 years old. People often stop to chat with each other. Young people are drawn here because of the atmosphere and proximity to funky Commercial Drive and nearby Italian section of Hastings street. It is a place where people are passionate about their community but also the state of the world. Many restaurants, bars and coffee shops are a short walk away.
There is access to frequent buses on either Commercial or Hastings Street, both are about 3 blocks away or 7 minutes walk.
Quiet after 11 pm and be mindful that this is not the only suite in the house. No smoking inside. Please help to keep things tidy by clearing away dishes after meals, putting them in the dishwasher etc.
Everything was flawless. Although we did not see Kathy, everything was conveniently set up. The apartment was exactly as described, and it could not have been better. Everything very clean, bright, tastefully decorated, and the neighbourhood; beautiful and very quiet, overlooking a park and the North shore mountains. The house has a beautiful lush garden. We have always found good places on airbnb, and this one is our all time favorite. We look forward to our next visit.
The place is perfectly comfortable, clean and homely. The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful but there are plenty of good shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance. I would definitely recommend it.
I only met Kathy briefly but she seemed friendly and made sure we were comfortable.
We had a really pleasant stay at Kathy place .........Tani who was kathy's neighbor was really nice and helpful and she helped us a lot during our stay ........we really liked the location of the house......close to downtown and commercial drive where u have lots of restaurants ......it was nice staying there
We've loved being here so much and don't want to leave! The suite is enchanting, perched up in the trees with this wonderful view. I could spend hours up here watching the world go by. The suite is wonderfully light and airy, cosy, friendly, well-equipped but informal enough to make us feel at home. Super comfy bed! And we've completely fallen in love with this quirky neighbourhood. Sorry not to meet you, Kathy, but Tani was really helpful and welcoming. Our next Airbnb will have a lot to live up to!
Wir haben 6 Nächte in Kathy´s Suite verbracht. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut und ruhig gelegen. Kathy selbst haben wir nicht kennengelernt, aber ihre nette hilfsbereite Nachbarin Tani. Die Wohnung verfügte über alles was wir brauchten. Besonders gut gefallen hat uns die Aufteilung der Zimmer. Leider sind uns die Sauberkeit und besonders der Geruch der Wohnung (wir haben erst mal alles mit Febreze eingesprüht) negativ aufgefallen.
