Interaction with Guests
The carriage house and my home are on the same property. I'm easily assessable to those who need me. Privacy and your own space is a priority to me too, so feel free to talk as much as you like or as little. : )
I love love love my neighbourhood, I've lived here for 14 years myself. We are nestled between Commercial Drive and Hastings Sunrise. Both have some of the best coffee shops and restaurants in all of Vancouver. The streets are lined with beautiful trees and the houses all so different and charming. Very family oriented and friendly people. A very relaxed and laid back feeling.
Public transit is only a short three block walk away in any direction. From there you can travel to any destination you desire.
I love sharing my space with guests, I just ask in exchange that guests respect the home like its their own. Try to leave it close to the condition it was when you arrive. All towels, face cloths, dish towels ect can just be put in a pile on the floor. Keep the noise level at a reasonable level, I have neighbours, and it is a residential neighbourhood . No parties, not happening. Having drinks and a good time is awesome and encouraged, but only the guests that are booked. Because the toilet runs on a septic tank nothing but toilet paper and what comes out of you gets flushed down it. ; ). Things like tampons, dental floss, condoms will get caught up in the pump, use the garbage cans instead. Please n thank you!
We had a very nice stay here. Lisa was a great host, the listing and images represented the place well. Superb location, right next to a major bike arterial, and walking distance to lots of great food and retail on Commercial drive. Thanks!
We had two wonderful stays at Lisa’s apartment and enjoyed her hospitality much. Lisa was very responsive to our questions on best Asian food and things to do in the city. The apartment is clean and spacious (bathroom is small but no problem for us) and situated at just a 5-10 min walk from grocery shops, bus stops and cafes. Bus takes you in about 15 minutes downtown.
Lisa was warm and welcoming. The neighborhood is very cute, with Commercial Drive a short walk away. Lisa's place is dog friendly and there's even an amazing dog park a short walk away.
Lisa was extremely accommodating and her suite is absolutely beautiful. It had everything you need for a getaway. There was even coffee and tea for us in the morning. Only complaint is that the bed was so comfortable, we found ourselves taking an early nap rather than going out on the town. Haha. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and I would definitely stay again.
We found this spacious loft bedroom space just as it appeared in the photo. The adjoining kitchen was well-appointed, with a drip coffee pot and very good coffee. The neighborhood was a tad out of the way for us, as our daughter is closer to UBC, but this provided a nice getaway at the end of each day. Lisa is a friendly and charming hostess. We did not see her very much, but appreciated her availability and quick responses to texts.
Perfect in many ways. Super friendly and helpful host. Lisa's instructions were spot on. She kept all promises. Free street parking. Easy to locate. Terrific neighborhood location. Walk to Commercial St between Venables and Broadway. Clean. Nice little porch to sit on and watch world go by. One thing to be aware of: the shower is funky! And very little privacy when using the privy. That said, shower had excellent pressure and hot water came on fast. Enjoyed Lisa's place and will come back.
This was my first airbnb experience and it was great! The location was awesome and in a really lovely, quiet neighbourhood. The place was comfy, welcoming and clean. Lisa was engaging and helped us find the grocery store and gave us directions to the ferry. Overall, it was a wonderful stay. The only thing we didn't like was the bathroom which was hard to use and did not offer very much privacy. So if you're travelling with a mother-in-law or someone you don't feel completely comfortable with, the bathroom situation might be awkward. With that said, I would definitely stay here again.
