ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING.
Other than that, it's your house away from home and as long as everything is still there (and in one piece) after you leave I will be happy!
We had a lovely stay at this airbnb and I would highly recommend it. Though it is only a block away from a major arterial and an easy walk to the Commercial district, the neighborhood itself is very quiet. Barbara and her husband made us feel welcome through all sorts of thoughtful little details provided in the space. There was a Brita pitcher filled with filtered water waiting in the fridge as well as assorted condiments. They had all sorts of guidebooks and tourist brochures available to help us plan our time and find our way. It was chilly in the morning and my friend was particularly appreciative of the heated floors in the bathroom. I was grateful for the cozy throw to snuggle under on the couch. Everything was very clean and the bed was comfortable.
I stayed in this lovely apartment while visiting my son. The area was very convenient and the couple who own the suite are very helpful & accommodating while also giving you privacy. The place is tastefully furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, private bath and private entrance. I would stay there again & recommend it to others. A wonderful alternative to a hotel.
Babara was a great host, and I would definitely stay at her place again! She gave us plenty of privacy and her suite was VERY clean and cozy. The neighborhood was close to everything we wanted to see and we felt safe. Barbara and her family live upstairs, and things were audible from our suite but not at all bothersome. I would recommend her place to anybody staying in Vancouver!
