The location of Minnie's apartment is perfect; it's a short walk or taxi from most places in the city, and it even has a park across the street and a bike share hub a hundred yards away. The apartment was very neat and clean.
Minnie is such a lovely host. The accommodations are super cute, in a great location between West End, Davie Village and Downtown. There is a beautiful park across the street. Everything seems to be within walking or cab distance. Minnie was instantly responsive with communication and fulfilling any needs we had. We definitely recommend a stay with her at this location.
We had a great time staying at Minnie's. Everything was just as described. The location is perfect - steps away to everything downtown Vancouver has to offer. Minnie is a great host, very responsive, she even offered us second parking spot. Definitely recommend the place!
The house is in a perfect location to walk around everywhere - just minutes away from Granville, Robson and other bustling streets. The house is as described, very clean and new. There's a parking spot where we are able to park. Minnie was very responsive in her communication with us. We will definitely stay again!
Minnie contacted me right away regarding our stay welcoming us to Vancouver BC. She was very informative and helpful when I reached out to her. The AirBnB apartment is attached to her home, which is directly below her house. So you can hear people walking above at times. The location is perfect. Right in front of Nelson park and very close to the strips of downtown. Would definitely go back again.

Perfect location.Close to absolutely everything.Beautiful and quiet one bedroom apartment. Araz is very helpful and communication with him very easy.5 stars!
Araz's place was perfect for two people. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for our 2 night stay. The building itself was also very quiet. We were also able to use the gym. The location could not be any better. There were so many restaurant choices that were within 5 minute walking distance. There's even a grocery store across the street. Highly recommend this place!
Araz was a great host. He responded quickly to all my questions and had everything ready for our arrival. The space is modern, clean, and includes all amenities - per the listing. I would definitely stay at his place again if I came back to Vancouver.
Awesome place! Very nice and modern. Bedroom was a bit small but worked!
Had an amazing time at Araz's place! It is in a great location with great bars and restaurants right around the corner. The place is exactly as advertised very accommodating and great hosts
The apartment was clean and in the most perfect location. Araz responded quickly to questions and made our stay as easy and smooth as possible. I would highly recommend staying here. Just bring your own shampoo! Other than that we had everything we needed
Aziz was very friendly and helpful. The place was exactly as described. When I asked for good restaurant nearby he provided me with a great recommendation. Also the security on the building is first rate.

We had a great stay here in Vancouver. It was easy to find and get in with the instructions given and Joshua responded to our questions very quickly. It is a good size, good location and very clean. Really easy to get to everything we needed.
We had a great stay at Joshua's place. The apartment was clean, stylish, and in a great location. The king size bed was super comfortable. Joshua was great at communicating with us to make sure we were well taken care of. Yaletown is a great location in the heart of Vancouver. There is a ton of fun stuff to do within walking distance. Having free parking was a serious plus. We would definitely come back and feel lucky to have found this place.
Joshua was excellent - very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed - access was easy - parking was great - nice and clean suite in an awesome location. Would definitely stay there again.
Joshua's apartment was wonderful for our Vancouver trip! Terrific location, very clean and modern apartment, with everything we needed for our stay. Very comfy bed too! This is a great place to stay for your next Vancouver trip! Joshua was awesome. Very responsive (which meant a lot to us) and was very helpful. We had a late flight into YVR but making arrangements for us to access the flat even after midnight was no hassle at all for Joshua. Great host. Great apartment. Great trip. Thank you!
Just as described, a very nice clean condo in a central location. Walk to Canada line in under 10 minutes. Comfortable bed, responsive host. Easy check in and Joshua accommodated a late checkout. Great value!
Joshua was super helpful through the whole process. Great location. Great building. Thanks for everything Joshua.
Joshua has a very modern apartment in a convenient location. We were minutes from Yaletown, BC Place, Pacific Centre, Granville Island etc. Joshua was very accommodating and allowed us to drop our bags early before our official check in. The apartment was well furnished with a washer/dryer, dishes, fridge/freezer, etc. we had a fabulous time staying at his place and would not hesitate to stay here again. The view from the balcony is a million dollar view. Thank you Joshua!
Joshua's apartment was clean, comfortable and located in the hear of Vancouver downtown. Underground parking stall was safe and a big plus for us. Our 4 night stay went really well. Joshua is a great host.

Slava was so helpful and so accommodating! What a great host and his apartment is beautiful and perfectly centered in downtown. The apartment felt more like a hotel or even home than an air b n b!Everything you need is right next door. I wish I could have stayed longer!!! Thank you slava!
This was the perfect place for us to stay on our trip to Vancouver, close to lots of bars and restaurants. Slava had left a super helpful list of recommendations for places to eat and things to do/see. The apartment was clean and lovely. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Vancouver!
The location, in the heart of Vancouver downtown, is excellent. Slava is an excellent communicator and made quick arrangements for my friends to enter the condo when I realized I couldn't meet them in time. The condo has everything you'd need for a short stay, although I did not have the opportunity to check out the advertised building amenities. The place is smaller than it seems in the photos but perfectly adequate for a group of 4. There is an air mattress for anyone who may not like the idea of pull out sofas. Overall: great location, responsive host, and much greater value than the area's hotels which can be exorbitantly priced. Definitely recommended!
Our experiencie on his appartament was great. The appartament was really clean and comfortable, it was located in an excellent place. Slava really cared about us and made sure that our experience was a good one!!
Great apartment, awesome location. Would recommend to anyone in the city.
Slava was very kind and helpful to my (URL HIDDEN) is a great place to stay and with a good location!
The hosts were very helpful and the property is in a wonderful building, just a short walk from downtown Vancouver. Their pricing was very reasonable. I would recommend this condo to anyone who wants to visit Vancouver.
Great Location! Very central. Grocery store and Starbucks within a block. Robson St. only two blocks away. Very well equipped kitchen. Everything we needed. Checkin was smooth as Slavo waited for us. Nice touch with a fruit basket and bottles of water at checkin.

The listing description is accurate, and Kathryn and Jeff are wonderful hosts! They really went above and beyond to make my stay, as well as that of the other guests at the time, relaxing and copacetic. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, on a bicycle route, a short walk from Main Street and the Via Rail Station. I slept well in the super-comfortable bed. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic - delicious coffee (they even brought me cinnamon) and fruit, at my request. When I slipped out the door early the last morning, my belly warm and full, I smiled and thought, what kind, warm, thoughtful and dynamic people! And how rested I felt, after a week of intense study in Vancouver!
Kathryn and Jeff were great hosts and wonderful people, living in a nice area of the city. The two are very accomodating and Jeff makes an excellent americano as well as having some material handy on how to best spend your time in Vancouver. Enjoyed our stay very much and would have loved to have been able to stay longer. :)
Kathryn and Jeff were amazing! They were very thoughtful and made sure that we made the most of our short visit. Their house is located between two bus stops that will get you around the city relatively easily. There is a lot to do within walking distance of the house as well. Breakfast was fantastic, and Jeff makes the best coffee and tea!
I had a wonderful stay with Kathryn and Jeff, and it was a great location for getting around Vancouver - very close to the train station and easy to walk to different parts of town, yet quiet. The room was very cozy and the bed was ridiculously comfortable and very warm! The hosts were so welcoming and gave me a great introduction to Vancouver sights and getting around, and generally helped to make sure that my stay was as good as it could be. They run it much like a traditional B&B, and have separated their living quarters from the guest rooms. I would definitely stay there again!
Both Kathryn and Jeff were there to greet me, with a cappuccino that Jeff had made. Every day involved such thoughtfulness. As a traveler, I could tell that they brought their travel experiences to mind when they designed the space and curated what amenities to provide. I usually work as I travel and the room had great Wi-Fi if I chose to stay --- and was close to many places from which I could set-up my "office." Jeff gave great suggestions on cafes and restaurants. Their house is such a great location for someone new to Vancouver --- walkable to pretty much everything I wanted to do, or just within a few blocks from a bus line that ran frequently.
Totally exceeded our expectations. We arrived late for check in, which was no problem, and were warmly greeted by Jeff, who lead us to our room. He took extra time to attend to us without being intrusive, and my wife and I immediately felt at ease. He also offered us some delicious lime water and some fresh tea, which was exactly what we needed and made us very welcome. The room we rented was very clean and well appointed, and it is obvious that a great deal of attention was paid to the details when this 100 year old character home was renovated. The bathroom, though shared with two other guest rooms, is immaculate and includes a double sink and heated floors. Even with all three rooms occupied, we never had to wait, and there was always the main floor bathroom on standby for emergencies.Our stay also included breakfast, which consisted of a beautiful spread of hearty nuts, seeds, fresh fruit and organic yogurt. We were also treated to some espresso while we lounged on the front porch the next morning. We can't say enough nice things about Jeff and Kathryn. They were excellent hosts who attended to our every need, and they are now my go-to source for accommodation when we visit Vancouver. Thanks so much guys! Can't wait to see you again!
Our stay at Kathryn's home was very pleasant. Her home was tucked away in a very quaint and quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but still close enough to drive or even walk to destinations of interest. She and her husband were very welcoming and laid-back. The breakfast and coffee were a delicious added bonus! We definitely recommend Kathryn's home for your Vancouver travels.
we were very happy staying here with Jeff and Kathryn. the breakfast was lovely with made to order coffees. Jeff was very helpful with city information and suggestions. the doggies were nice to cuddle and pet on the front porch.

It was a great stay!
The condo was just as advertised... great views, spacious, very clean and comfortable. Sandy was a helpful host and we didn't run into any issues during our stay. As some others have called out, the building is on the edge of some sketchy areas, so walking around late at night would not be advised. We would certainly stay there again.
I had an amazing stay! Sandy was great, and easy to communicate with. The unit was beautiful with breath-taking views. Location was central to everything in downtown. The unit was well decorated with luxurious features. I would definitely stay here again!
Great location and amazing views! The condo was very clean and comfortable, and it had everything we needed for our stay. Sandy was the perfect host, accommodating our late check in with no problem. Thanks Sandy!
Sandy's place was amazing! I stayed there with four friends and the space was perfect for us. Sandy was very helpful and responsive when we had questions; the whole trip was smooth.
Excellent Condo! We loved the view over the city. There's everything you need. Highly recommended!
Most enjoyable stay. Great location and awesome view.
Thx again for the uncomplicated & pleasent stay! Your beautiful condo made this journey remarkable...

Our cool and comfortable apt has been a pleasure to renovate. We scoured modern & vintage stores for comfortable and good looking furnishings. Small but practical and lovely. Our patio and front garden is a nice evening dinner spot. **Our rates change with the seasons, summer being the peak travel time to Vancouver, so check the rate on your travel days before you book so you're not surprised. Thanks!** Great location between downtown and Commercial Drive. Cool in the heat of the summer. The kitchen has a small fridge, a two burner stove top, a large toaster oven, a stove top espresso maker, elec. hot water kettle, and the regular staples. The space is an open plan with a double bed. About 400sqft. We've made it as practical, and pretty, as we could for our guests. Outdoor patio with BBQ and fire pit. Laundry. Smiles from our adorable toddler daughter. Free street parking in front of the house. We live upstairs in the house and are around a lot, but the suite is autonomous. We are located on the eastern edge of Strathcona. Strathcona is a very walkable neighbourhood, tree lined traffic calmed streets. Bike route right around the corner. Close to Chinatown, Commercial Drive, Gastown. Tons of parks all around. Small coffee and ice cream shops near by. Public transit is a couple blocks away, there is a bike route right through Strathcona. Close to arterial roads in and out of the city. Our rates are seasonal, with summer being the peak travel season to Vancouver.read more
Beautiful home and fantastic neighborhood. Mark was thoughtful and warm and made me feel right at home.
Lovely suite. Clean, great location and Sue and Mark are awesome. Would definitely stay here again.
Sue's place was fantastic! She was so nice and welcoming, and the map in the unit was incredibly helpful. If you stay in Vancouver, stay here!
Lauren & Tim
We loved all of the small, welcoming touches in this perfect studio space in Strathcoa. Thank you Sue for being so very accomodating! This one tops our list of Airbnb stays.
Sue's studio was perfect for our stay! Sue was easy to communicate with and made the place feel like home--from the bread, bananas, coffee, and other food items to the cute, detailed home/neighborhood guide. We would definitely stay here again!
Everything was perfect, even though we were late due external reasons, they made us feel welcome and were really nice explaining the area and the apartment.
This was an excellent first experience using Air bnb! Sue and Mark were extremely accommodating and truly fantastic hosts. There space was well designed and decorated and came with a wealth of material informing us on the surrounding neighbourhood and local spots to check out. It was easy to feel at home in their space, with an extremely comfy bed and hip furniture choices. Also, their outdoor space is beautiful. I would highly recommend this listing and definitely stay there again if in Van. Strathcona in general is a great place to be.

Diego (and Henrique) is(/are) great host(s) and cool guy(s). It is a clean, new apt right in the center of downtown Vancouver, close to all kinds of amenities. Diego has excellent taste. Listing is exactly as described.
Fantastic stay! He accommodated for everything, was welcoming and made it feel like a home! My stay was fun from start to finish. I chose to wake up to the light of the morning city and found tasty places to eat . The location was great and was able to bus some places, taxi to others. Henrique was only there towards the end of the night and I still felt at east during my breaks of exploring. I'd recommend you book with him, he's sweet, is clean and neat, and his place is a great place for tourists!
Great place and great people. Definetly would recommend

This tool will help you see the different attractions, restaurants and sights that I personally recommend. Please note all of these are described from my personal point of view, experience and taste. There are many other attractions and restaurants in Vancouver close to the condo that I just refrain from recommending either because I had never been or just because they do not align with my interest or life style. Sorry, no pets and no smoking allowed. Israel P.S. Look for the Vancouver Timelapse by Joel Schat video in YouTube to see some of the views from the condo and to see more of Vancouver.read more
Israel made us feel welcome and gave us great recommendations.
This was our first time using airbnb.com and it was a very positive experience. Our host Israel was professional in his communications before our arrival as well as once we arrived in Vancouver. The bedroom and bath were as represented and the view is amazing. The location was perfect for walking to two heritage areas with lots of ambience. We recommend the experience!
Fantastic, perfectly located flat for staying in Vancouver. Great host, very friendly. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
A lovely space to come home to! We were out most of the day but really enjoyed the view from our room and the little balcony.
Israel was a fabulous host. He has impeccable style and manners. The apt was gorgeous and spotlessly clean. The windows and views from his high-rise apt are amazing! and the location was perfect for downtown dining and recreation.
The apartment was immaculate and had wonderful views across downtown. the location was also spot on for exploring so many things on foot. Israel was very communicative and helpful in facilitating our arrival. he also kindly let us leave our cases so that we could have a leisurely morning. thanks

Great location and fabulous views in the centre of downtown Vancouver. The apartment was beautiful, clean, very comfortable, efficient, and in the heart of everything! Kari was a wonderful host. She made me feel at ease and at home. I highly recommend this lovely place!
Great place to spend your nights. Place is advertised and Kari was very informative and easy to contact.
So easy to find and access, perfect location and perfect size for a couple. Amazing balcony and views which is such a treat in a city centre. Will definitely be back
Kari was so great & responsive - and this apartment is *exactly* how the pictures show. Amazing views, great value, and in the heart of everything. It was perfect!
Great apartment for one or two guest. Nice city line views, close to transportation, shopping, restaurants and some sites.
Such a great airbnb experience staying at Katy's place. From pre booking until check out, Katy was very easy to communicate with and answered all my questions right away. Everything you see in the picture are exactly what you will get. The location is amazing, very close to restaurants, shops, café, and a nice grocery across the street. Parking for our car was no issue since we parked at the garage right across the street. The apartment was lovely and a perfect space for 2 people. The terrace was amazing, very spacious and lovely place to sit and chill. Would definitely like to book Katy's airbnb in the future when we return.
This condo is very close to all kinds of amenities. It was very clean and perfectly stocked with everything you could need. The terrace is a real bonus. Great Views! Kari is an excellent host. Highly recommend staying here.
Katy's place was bright and clean. The location was perfect, right in the middle of everything. There isn't specific parking for the place but we paid for a week pass in a public parking garage which wasn't too bad but something to consider for expense. I think it was around $55 Canadian. Overall had a great time, beautiful view and easy checkin/out.

Scott and Shira's studio is a great place to stay when exploring Vancouver. It looks exactly like in the pictures! A nice mix of old and new furniture, with a complete kitchen including delicious coffee. We never met our hosts in person but their instructions and help through email/airbnb were perfect! I'm 1.78 m and loved this place, however if you're taller than ~1.90 m, you might reconsider staying here; you'll definately bump your head (and feel slightly claustrophobic).
My boyf and I were satisfied :) they are really kind also the house has comfortable atmosphere.
It was an awesome place to stay! Clean, comfy, felt very safe. Great proximity to buses, local eating and bars! Fantastic place to stay!!
This place was exactly what we've been looking for. A cozy place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. There's nothing more to say than that we totally loved this place!
Our stay was great! The studio is perfect. Getting around town was really simple, and there are a lot of cute restaurants, stores, and cafes nearby. We really enjoyed how cozy the studio was, and would definitely stay here again when we return to Vancouver!
The studio was amazing! It is right around the corner from many restaurants and shops. We had a great stay and definitely recommend to anyone who wants to visit Vancouver. The only difficult thing was finding parking late at night, but other than that, everything was wonderful.
The house was very cosy and located in an awesome spot! Scott and Shira were great hosts!
Scott and Shira's was a little oasis of calm for me and my girlfriend after a long flight. Very convenient for transport and plenty of amenities nearby.

Good location , clean place. highly recommend for a stay at vancouver.

Very lovely and clean apartment! We will definitely be back!
My partner and I absolutely loved this apartment. Everything was so clean and tidy and smartly decorated. If we ever venture to Vancouver again we will definitely be staying here.
David and Natalia
A great little apartment for a stay in Vancouver. The photos were accurate, and the apartment was very clean with plenty of room for the 2 of us. I'm not sure that the listing mentions it, but the apartment is partly below ground which may not be for everyone. Also, while it was perfect for my wife and me - we're both under 5' 6" - a taller person might find it a little cramped - the bathroom ceiling seemed less than 8 '. We bumped into Josee only once, but all the contact information was accurate and we had no problems. Overall, a great apartment that I'd highly recommend with a few caveats.
Loved the flat! Really nicely remodeled, simple and cozy. Josee was very flexible and responsive.

Great stay at Cathy and Tom's place in Vancouver! The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The place is cozy, comfortable, and well decorated and is located in a beautiful suburb not too far from downtown. Would definitely recommend Cathy and Tom's place to other AirBnB users and hopefully we'll be back ourselves!
Great place in a very great neighborhood. Very calm, but not too far away from Vancouver downtown and in good reach to UBC and Kitsilano. The apartment is decorated quiet tastefully, full of practical stuff (washer, drier etc.) and on top of that, there is the outstanding oatmeal breakfast "à la Tom&Cathy" every morning.
Perfect air BnB experience! Listing is just as advertised. Perfectly neat and clean, full amenities. Hosts were helpful and caring. Room is really more a small apartment, quiet and restful. Would return in a flash!
I loved my stay here. The room was beautiful and completely as advertised. The house is located in a great neighbourhood very close to (URL HIDDEN) was perfect for my trip to the university. I arrived very late at night, but Cathy and Tom were totally accommodating. I would recommend this spot to anyone!
This is a truly wonderful place to stay! If you are at all hesitant because it is not downtown, do not fear: the neighborhood is well-serviced by transit and you can get downtown, to UBC/Pacific Spirit Park or the Kitsilano area very easily. The space itself was beautiful and exactly as described. I loved the daily oatmeal, beautiful bathroom and serene bedroom with its white linens and great sunlight. Cathy and Tom were super accomodating of my late check-in and left a very detailed house manual with everything you need to know. They clearly love hosting and that shows. If my travels bring me back to this part of the world, I will definitely stay here!

Free wifi and free parking. 2 bed garden level suite in newly renovated heritage home a 1/2 block off trendy Main street. In-suite washer dryer, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, and strolling distance to countless restaurants, pubs & shops. Welcome to the "Sophia Suite" This spotless, brand new, well laid out Vancouver 2 bedroom suite, is in a gorgeous newly renovated heritage home, in one of the most desirable areas in Vancouver, on a tree lined, quiet neighbourhood street. Named after "Sophia" street in Vancouver, it is a garden level suite, every aspect of which has been chosen and maintained to create a "hotel" feel for the guests, right down to the brand new linens and towels, guest information booklet containing all the local attractions, and the 'just in case' basket of small essentials that we provide for each guest . One of the beauties of this suite is the location which is in a buzzing area of town with countless eateries and bars to visit, yet the suite is extremely quiet, so expect to sleep like a baby. Not only is the space well equipped to accommodate 4 people comfortably, it is walking distance to countless bars, restaurants and boutiques along Main street. There is even a bank and pharmacy (large Shoppers Drug Mart) a half a block away. We are located in the middle of 3 different coffee shops, and the grocery store is only 4 blocks away. Bus line is a half block away, 2 sushi restaurants 1 block away, a gelato shop, 2 pizza joints, and a sports bar 3 blocks away, a corner store is 1 block away, and about 20 very cool, eclectic and interesting restaurants and bars within a 4 block radius, let alone around 30-40 more if you want to walk an extra few blocks...from French to Thai, from Italian to Caribbean, the selection is huge. And not only that, but Rogers arena, BC Place and Telus World of Science are a 5 min drive/bus ride down Main street, so you can't get much more convenient than that. New, Clean, and great location, what else could you ask for in beautiful Vancouver? Features: In suite washer and dryer (laundry detergent supplied) Large brand new kitchen with: Gas range garberator microwave Dishwasher (detergent supplied) Plenty of counter space Island with 2 bar stools Pots/pans/dishes/cutlery/fully stocked kitchen 2 bedrooms each with queen size bed, kitchen and living room Complete privacy with own private entrance and path to the entrance Security system. Fresh towels and linens Shampoo, soap, body wash Baby crib/playard and highchair available upon request Upon reservation, you will be sent an email with your personal door code (usually made up of the last 4 digits of your telephone number). When you arrive, simply press the RED STAR at the top of the key pad, then your 4 digit code, and the lock will open. You have total control over the apartment and can check in as late as you like! We live upstairs and are happy to be there for any advice you might need about the area or the apartment, however it is a very large heritage home, and we use a completely different side of the house for living and coming and going, so guests have 100% privacy while they are staying. It's the best of both worlds... the benefit of having our knowledge about Vancouver if you feel like stopping by and having a chat with us, while also having the option of the privacy of a fully contained apartment if you don't! Our neighbourhood is the best of both worlds, a quaint neighbourhood feel a half block away from all the conveniences and fun of trendy Main street. Hundreds of bars, restaurants, and cool boutiques along Main street, while our home is so tranquil and quiet you could hear a pin drop. The closest bus stop is a half block away, and taxis will take you to most areas of the city (including the airport) for between $10 and $20. There is a bus stop a half block away, there are always lots of 'Car To Go' cars around our neighbourhood (look it up and register, it's totally worth it!) the sky train (also called the RAV line) station is about 18 blocks away, which will take you to almost every corner of Vancouver in minutes. read more
Heidi is such a nice host. Provided very detailed and useful tips before and during my stay at her Sophie suite. I didn't do my homework ahead but the info provided by Heidi made my stay in Vancouver great! Highly recommend this place.
Heidi was a terrific host, and the apartment was great! We absolutely loved the location in Mt. Pleasant - it is literally less than half a block from Main street, the bus to downtown, ATMs and drug store, restaurants etc. It was a great jumping off point for other adventures in Vancouver. The apartment is just as shown in the photos, and has many thoughtful touches like the emergency goodies basket, coffee, tea, and cooking basics, good towels and sheets etc. Heidi even put some fresh cream in the fridge before our arrival for coffee in the AM. She was a great host - she gave us a lot of privacy, but also checked in on us. The coffee machine wasn't working our first day and she replaced it that day and even brought us down two cups from her own kitchen! The apt was quiet and dark for sleeping, and also had an array of TV options to use (although we were out and about most of the time). We had 3 people staying there and it was a nice amount of space since we are all light packers. The apt is very thoughtfully laid out to ensure total privacy of guests - separate entrance, private windows etc. Very safe area as well. Overall, a great AirBnB experience!
The Sophia Suite was a lovely spot from which to explore the city of Vancouver -- clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. It had everything we were looking for to rest up and recharge. And the neighborhood has the best of both worlds; my brother and I found 17th street quiet and peaceful, but Main St. and its shops, bars, and sushi joints is just a few steps away. We'd gladly stay there again!
On my recommendation (as I have stayed here and loved it), my parents stayed at Heidi's place for a few days while visiting my sister who lives in the area. They LOVED it. The place was clean, quiet and exactly how it is described. They said it was such a nice retreat after a busy day exploring Vancouver. Heidi's a great host and has a very nice suite - we all highly recommend the Sophia Suite!
Staying at Heidi's place was just amazing. She Is a great host And everything was made for us to feel home. She really has The sense of detail. I highly recommend ! Thank you so much Heidi for everything !
We loved everything about staying at the Sophia suite. Heidi was incredibly accommodating- even letting us get in early on our day of arrival to drop off our bags! The rooms are neat and clean, they were perfect for my friend and I for our girls weekend. She even left us fresh breads and bagels for breakfast and made sure we had everything we need to make coffee. The suite is perfectly located in Mount Pleasant, 1/2 block off Main Street, walking distance to many coffee shops and restaurants. We had the best time!
Heidi's place is a perfect example of the best kind of AirBnB experience. Communication was quick and clear. Found a parking space directly in front of the house. The apartment is new, uber clean, quiet, very comfortable, and stocked with everything we needed. When I needed one more piece of kitchen equipment, a quick text to the owner and it showed up on my doorstep within minutes. Mount Pleasant is a great neighborhood to explore Vancouver from. I highly recommend staying here !!!
Had a wonderful stay at the Sophia Suite! Heidi has thought of everything to make sure you feel at home, including a welcome basket and lots of useful information about the suite and the neighbourhood. The suite is warm,cozy and well appointed, though a bit snug for 4 adults. Would be ideal for a family. The pictures are very accurate, and we loved having so many restaurants and shops right around the corner. Would stay there again!

The place was very light and modern. Super clean, well stocked, quiet and restful. Had a great time over spring break. Very close to great Thai, bakery, pizza, and the best ever Chinese (Yu Xiang Yuan hand crafted noodle) on Fraser street.
Josee was an amazing host. As a first time user of AirBnB, I could not have hoped for a better experience! Josee was great at communicating with me, and making sure I understood many of the aspects of using this service beyond the details strictly pertaining to the rental. Instructions were clear, concise and easy to understand. I had no trouble finding the place, which was exactly as pictured/advertised (in fact, it was even nicer than we expected). I will be definitely recommending AirBnB and Josee as a host to my friends and family. Thanks!
Although we didn't meet up with Josee, the apartment was ready to go, clean and very nice. It was not too far from downtown (we had a car) but in a quiet area.
This place is a gem. My wife and I stayed here after TED and we will be back. Comfortable, quiet, clean, and impeccably designed, this place is a great value. Nestled in a quiet neighbor that's just a quick cab ride from downtown or to the airport, you get to have the best of both worlds.
Josee's place was perfect for our trip to Vancouver! The suite is so cozy and welcoming, plus there is safe street parking. We really enjoyed our time and were sad to leave. We will definitely be staying there again in the future :)
The studio was perfect for our little family. We had a 6 month old baby with us that slept between my wife and I. The studio was just like in the pictures. The whole studio was spotless, clean and the upgrades the place has are amazing! We really enjoyed ourselves and felt very comfortable! We didn't get to meet Josee but he was prompt when we had any questions or concerns. Would definitely stay here again!
The listing is in a very quite neighbourhood. It is clean and equipped with everything that is needed for preparing light meals as well as laundry machine and drier that work well. In a walking distance you can find restaurants and grocery stores as well as public transportation. I would definitely come there again, If a need a place to stay in Vancouver.
My best friend and I decided to plan a last minute trip to Vancouver. We contacted Josee with about 5 hours notice. He was more than happy to book us for the night. The studio was so cozy and cute we felt right at home. The following morning we were planing to be out by ten but asked if we could stay until 11 and he had no problem. He was so friendly, I would highly recommend booking with Josee. We hope to book again too. :)

It's an excellent place for a small family which visit Vancouver.
Excellent location and very nice apartment. The Location: You're right in the middle of downtown Vancouver. About 7 minutes walk to the Canada line station. 15 minutes to the waterfront. There's no shortage of food choices around Robson St. There's a great poutine place by Granville about 10 minutes walk from the location. The Room: I like the privacy of the room. comfortable bed. You have a nice view of Vancouver as well. It's better than a hotel room IMHO Jessy was very quick in responding to the inquiry and friendly. Thank you for hosting Jessy!
Jessy was helpful and provided feedback whenever asked. Her place was is a prime location and excellent view of the city. Easy walking distance to many of the great restaurant and food carts on the street corners.
Great location, amazing views of the city with added bonuses like gym and pool.
We loved Jessy's place so much we wanted to stay longer! Great location and facilities, Netflix was an unexpected plus. Thanks Jessy!
Jessy was great! Very communicative and made sure everything worked out smoothly. She also left us with a great list of restaurants to visit. The place itself was beautiful and clean. Thanks for the stay!
Pre-arrival communication with Jessy was great! My friends and I wanted to check-in earlier and she was able to arrange an earlier time for us to settle in the space. She was very understanding and helpful. The apartment is in a prime location. We aren't the fastest walkers but we managed to walk down to the Granville strip under 8 minutes in (very) high heels. The space was clean and Jessy provided detailed instructions and information on a sheet about surrounding restaurants and activities. The space also had a nice view of the intersecting streets and had lots of natural light coming in due to the big glass windows. It felt very cozy. We had a third person who was going to sleep on the couch so Jessy had provided us with some extra blankets. The two of us slept in the bedroom, which had a spacious mini walk-in closet. We also had lots of baggage with us and so with some notice, Jessy was able to give us an extra hour to check out (luckily no one was checking in after us at the time). We only had the chance to stay one night but it was great! Would definitely recommend her apartment to anyone looking. Thanks again, Jessy!
The apartment is at an excellent location, it's walking distance to lots of restaurants and public transport. Jesse answered all my questions about our trip quickly. She gave me recommendation on where to visit and how to get there. The apartment is clean and very safe, Jesse provided all the essentials for the guests. I would highly recommend staying at this apartment.

George was an amazing host, he walked me through the entire apartment and explained where everything was. The apartment was well equipped, you could easily live for a couple of weeks here. Also the location was amazing for getting to a lot of different places in Vancouver
The apartment was great! Perfect location and beautifully set up. Getting the keys was very easy. We would definitely stay again if we found ourselves in Vancouver.
Great place, in a great neighborhood by the water. Exactly as advertised. George even let us drop our luggage off early when we landed in Vancouver. Overall had a wonderful experience.
Such a wonderful spot. The apartment is super comfortable and clean. The neighborhood is perfect, being right by the beach but also just a few blocks from the action of downtown. I loved staying here! George was prompt with communication and very accommodating. I never needed anything. Thanks George!
All round great host. Place was exactly as the post described and very clean. Key pick up instructions easy to follow and had no issues. Will recommend to anyone.

The location of this condo is excellent - our family had a lot of fun walking the three blocks to a main street that was full of French bakeries, coffee shops, and trendy restaurants.
The building is very old but the unit is kept clean with all the necessity. Just one block away from the beautiful English bay.

Monika was the perfect host! We only stayed one night, but she made sure that we got the most out of our stay. Her place is located in an ideal location, only a couple blocks from downtown Vancouver and it is furnished like a palace. She's got wonderful taste, and her entire condo is laid out like an Ikea catalogue. As far as communication goes she is amazing. She is very accommodating and will go above and beyond to make sure your stay is as perfect as possible. Just a wonderful lady who rents a beautiful condo. Hopefully I'll be back soon. :)
It was my first time in Vancouver and was there to celebrate my anniversary. I could not hav asked for a better host to truly make the experience memorable. Monika was so accommodating and made sure we had everything that we needed. Not to mention her condo was beautiful and was in the perfect location making it sooooo easy to see the entire downtown! I would not hesitate to stay with her again! Thank you so much for lending your home!
Monika has a great place in the West End of Vancouver. Her apartment was sparkling clean and really comfortable. She is very welcoming and extremely helpful for suggesting restaurants and activities. Lots of options within 4 or 5 blocks, and the location is great for Stanley Park, downtown, or, the beach at English Bay.
I came to Vancouver with my best friend for about a week for a nice little trip and we found Monika's place and our experience couldn't have been any better without her and this place. Monika was so nice and generous. She even picked us up from the Sky Train and still offered to pick us up even after our flight got delayed past midnight. The apartment was in the perfect location. Majority of the tourist places that we wanted to visit was about a 30 minute distance. It wasn't too hard find the places that we needed to go. Just a perfect walk to the places we needed to go. She told us about how she had help from an interior design to decorate this place and you can tell that Monika put everything into consideration. Although we had a short visit in Vancouver, we spent one day to ourselves to cook in the kitchen and watch Netflix with one of the coolest and comfiest couch which was worth it. Just spending time in the apartment was a wonderful experience. Near the living room, there's a small, beautiful patio where we would drink tea in the morning because it always set a great atmosphere for the beginning of the day. The bedroom had one of the most comfiest bed along with a blackout curtain. The bathroom is beautifully decorated with a lovely bathtub and a high-tech toilet. There were already shampoo, conditioner, and new packages of soap for us to use. There were always extra blankets, pillows, towels, and etc. It was also amazing that we were able to use free laundry. The place made us feel very peaceful and right at home. Thank you Monika for providing us a wonderful place for a wonderful experience. We definitely want to come to this place if we visit Vancouver again.
This location, home and host are really awesome. Very pleased!
Monika was a great hostess. Met us promptly, helped secure parking on site and went over the apartment and its features. She went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable checking on us several times. We enjoyed the basket of fruit as well! The property is in a very quiet location and central to everything we did, the car remained parked the whole time. We hit up Granville Island, Stanley Park, rest of downtown (check out Konbiniya) etc. We were about 4-5 blocks from several grocery stores and restaurants. Robson and Davie are both ~4 blocks, lots of food choices: Donair Dude/Los Amigos for cheap, Takis for great Greek and Baguette and Co for great macaroons and sweets. Felt super safe at night walking everywhere. The kids appreciated the Roku to get some night time Netflix in. The fridge was big enough for several days of leftover and breakfast items. Apartment was well appointed/furnished. Will use again when visiting Vancouver.
The apartment was exactly like the photos, it was beautiful and very comfortable (the bed is amazing!). The location was perfect and walking distance to tons of locations. Monika was a very friendly and accommodating host and I would recommend staying at her place again. I wish I could've stayed longer!
We stayed at Monika's for a month and cannot say enough good things about the place and the location! The condo decor is very zen and the bathroom is spa-worthy, complete with fluffy white towels and organic hand soap, shampoo, and conditioner. The bed has the most comfortable mattress we've ever slept on. The balcony and living room window face an inner courtyard so it is extremely quiet. In fact, the area around the condo feels very residential even though it is just steps from bars, restaurants, and shops on Davie. However, with the big TV, surround sound, and lovely kitchen/bar counter set-up through to the living room, we ended up not going out as much as we thought we would in the West End as staying at home was comfortable and entertaining. The kitchen was also well-equipped. The free laundry was a great bonus. There are also a bunch of roof-top decks which we did not use because it was winter but these would be very appealing in the summer months. As for Monika herself, she was very warm and welcoming and only minutes away if we needed anything. For example, there were fresh fruit and flowers when I arrived and when the can opener malfunctioned, she brought over a new one asap. This was one of our best AirBnB experiences.

Berit and Sholto's house was PERFECT! The communication was great from the moment we booked. They were very responsive and flexible. The house was clean, stocked with all essentials and basic food items when we arrived. We had 6 adults and 3 kids and the space was plenty. The kids loved all the toys and books already in the house which was totally a life saver! The backyard (with a swing!) also provided them place to play and run around, absolutely a plus. The house is located at a very central location. It is super convenient to get to places. We will definitely come back and highly highly highly recommend it to anyone visiting Vancouver!!
My family and I (6 adults and 2 children) stayed at The House Downtown for 11 nights / 12 days and had a wonderful time. We felt this property was able to accommodate our large family with ease. There were so many different meeting spots throughout the house. The favorites being the front porch seating area, the kitchen island barstools, and the fabulous wooden tree swing hung in the backyard. The large patio was a great space for happy hours and munching. We enjoyed the outdoor heater on cooler nights. Having two full bathrooms, one located on each floor, provided enough space for everyone to get ready each day without feeling crowded. The room with a bunk bed was wonderful for our children and the toys/ books that were left for our use was an additional bonus. The location could not have been better with nearby parks, eateries, and easy access into the downtown core either via: foot, bike, bus, skytrain, or car. The neighborhood markets and coffee shops were fabulous and frequently visited during our stay. Berit greeted us warmly upon arrival and provided us with a wealth of information about the house and surrounding area. She periodically checked in to make sure our stay was comfortable and was quick to respond to any questions we had. We truly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay there again.
The house was very beautiful, as soon as we arrived to the house we were greeted by the host and he immediately gave us a tour and pointed out his beautiful furniture and home and how to use the appliances and the showers. They were very attentive every minute up to our arrival and even during the stay. There were enough towels and soap for our group and even some food during our stay. The neighborhood is perfect for exploring downtown and other areas, and we were just a few blocks to where you could catch a cab if we wanted to go anywhere further away. They offered to let us use their bikes and we did which was another great way to take in the sites. We had an amazing time, they were so great we even left them a gift! If we ever visit again, we will for sure request stay here!
Berit and Sholto made all of us feel right at home. Sweet house in a very sweet neighborhood. We. Did not want to leave and are already planning a return trip. Even before we got there, Berit went above and beyond on answering question over and over again!
Being there over the Christmas Holidays, our hosts made us feel completely welcome and at home with sparkling wine, home made cookies, individual presents for all and Christmas crackers for the table. The home is beautiful - Berit is a designer and every detail in the home reflects that. Loved the location.
The house is charming with a great voltage flavour and reflects the taste of the hosts who were attentive and available. We loved the kind and personal touch: scented soaps, fresh flowers, great breakfast... The neighborhood is perfect for exploring downtown whilst being on a quiet bike-friendly street. Everything was up to our expectation, and more!
Berit and Sholto were very accommodating and their house was really nice and well equipped. It was really great to have breakfast supplies in the house as this saved us a lot of time. The location was good since it was close to Chinatown, Gastown and downtown Vancouver. It was also really convenient to get anyplace in East Vancouver. The modern decor was really fun and the records and turntable were great. Thanks for a great stay!
Our vacation at Berit's home was absolutely lovely. We loved the Scandinavian-style decor and warmth and felt immediately at home. I've always fantasized about what it would be like to live in Vancouver, and this place definitely gave me an idea. Plus, the up-and-coming location is excellent as it sits at the verge of 3 neighborhoods (Gastown, Strathcona, and Chinatown). It was only a 10-15min walk into downtown which was super convenient, and taxi rides short and inexpensive. More importantly, Berit and Sholto were always very communicative and provided us with a wealth of helpful information via printed guides which made our stay all the easier and more pleasant, in addition to spoiling us with simple but delicious breakfast items such as granola, milk, yogurt, coffee etc. All of the rooms were really comfortable and the bathtubs were a hit in terms of relaxation. Parking was surprisingly not a nightmare at all (actually, it was plentiful) as we feared given my large group had all driven up. Lastly, they really went the extra mile by catching the fact that one of us had left our luggage well after we'd taken off, and they were quick to call us and meet us halfway so we could retrieve. I can only recommend them as hosts and I hope to stay at their beautiful house again!

The place is very nice. We have little kids we travel with, so the nice kid-friendly amenities were nice. The location can't be beat - easily walkable to lots of great stuff. We walked with small kids to granville island, which is pretty great. Also took them across the street to a school playground to burn off steam.
We were visiting Vancouver for Christmas this year, because our daughter is spending a year and we wanted to have a family hollyday together. We found this beautifull gardensuite, fitting our needs perfectly. Rami was a real nice host, communication was easy and the suite was fully equiped. We could start living, just by opening the door. If we will return to Vancouver, this place would be our first choice again
I stayed here for a week with my husband and 2 year old daughter. This apartment is exactly how it is described. Very homely and relaxing. Great location for shops beach and the city. They are great hosts and were also on hand if concerns and communication was instant. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay there again when we are back visiting Vancouver from the uk
A very thoughtful and considerate place to stay. We were comfortable and made to feel welcome with intuitive food basics. Brilliant location. Thanks so much Rami! Can't wait to come back.
We had a great experience and would definitely stay again. Thanks!!
Rami's place is clean, accessible and in a fantastic location. Located minutes away from the beach as well as shops and delicious restaurants it's the perfect launching pad for exploring Kitsilano and the rest of Vancouver!
This was the perfect jumping off point to explore Vancouver. Blocks from shopping, restaurants, and of course the beach. Lots of space with 2 good sized bedrooms. Easy to check in, and Rami was attentive and quick to respond to any queries.
Spent a great week in Rami's place. It was ideally located for doing some sight seeing and perfect for our conference at the Museum of Vancouver. We loved the fact that we could walk to some many restaurants and we took full advantage of its great location near the beach with a morning run. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay and Rami and his wife were always on hand with a quick response to any of our questions. Thank you

Excellent location! Central to everything (no need for a car) and particularly lovely magic hour views of Yaletown, the lake and distant mountains from the apartment. Alex and Mark were friendly, super responsive hosts who provided plenty of "insider/local" tips for us. We walked everywhere, truly enjoyed the city, lost track of the coffee shops (2-3 on many blocks) and only took the train when it was too rainy. Perfect location for a get together with old friends, couples or families.
A great place to stay in downtown Van! amazing view of they city lights at night; walking distance to many places in downtown and Robson St.; visitor parking was provided as well. I definitely will consider Alex place for future trips to Vancouver.
Our family stayed at Alex's Yaletown condo for our Christmas get away. We enjoyed it immensely. The location is very central to all things downtown, only a few blocks away from most things. It was quiet, and had an amazing view. It comfortably slept 4 of us. It was well kept and we'll stocked, including coffee. It is very well priced. 5*! We look forward to staying again in the future, thanks and Merry Christmas!
Alex was such a wonderful host - this was a luxury home away from home with great amenities and an incredible view! It was the perfect place for my family and I during our stay in Vancouver - lots of space, well-equipped kitchen, walking distance to everything we needed - overall a great experience. Would love to stay here again next time I am in the city!
Mark was a superb host! In fact, besides providing a very detailed set of instructions before our arrival, he also messaged us during our stay to see if we needed anything. Spacious and cozy apartment with a spectacular view in a really nice and lively neighborhood. We liked it a lot!
Great stay at Alex' place - it's exactly as described and in great location. Alex was very easy to deal with and very flexible.
My wife and I travelled to Vancouver from the U.K. I texted Alex as we were leaving the airport and she was waiting for us when we arrived. The suite was lovely, clean, tastefully decorated and in a good position. We stayed for 11 nights, sometimes eating in as all the utensils are provided. We were particularly impressed with the security of the building and found the other residents friendly. The area was safe with a choice of supermarkets nearby. Everywhere was within walking distance but if we were in a hurry the skytrain was only two blocks away. We loved sitting on the balcony reading our books and admiring the view. For us it was perfect.
Great place for a weekend in Vancouver. The location is excellent and convenient, in the best part of Yaletown. The condo was just as described. Spacious, clean. Alex was extremely responsive to all of our needs. Secured parking in the building was a plus. Would definitely recommend!

Inge was a very gracious host who knows how to make her guests feel welcome and comfortable. We were greeted upon arrival with fresh flowers from her garden, staples for our first breakfast and chocolate! She was quick to respond to any needs or questions we had. She knows her city well and was helpful when giving suggestions and directions. The apartment was as described, and we found it to be very clean, well-organized, well equipped and most stylish. There is a private outside sitting area for the apartment which was a perfect place to sit, relax, have a coffee and enjoy the beautiful back garden. It is in a walkable neighbourhood with convenient transit close by and a commercial area that includes coffee shops, small eateries and eclectic shops . We did a lot of sight seeing and found it to be in a good central location. There was never a problem finding parking for our rental car near the apartment.
We felt very welcomed by our host couple. The flat was very clean, neat and comfortable! Arrived in Vancouver from a 7 day Alascan cruise and needed to leave our bags at the home early. Ingen & Tom were great and gave us directions and suggestions which helped us get started sightseeing Vancouver. Tom helped us get the TV operating and Inged made arrangements for us to be picked up by a cab the next AM. Very pleasant quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay there again if in town. Highly rate this flat as EXCELLANT!
This is an Airbnb gem: a super clean, light, cozy basement apartment full of all the right amenities and helpful notes from Inge. The neighborhood is wonderful, and the walk down to dozens of restaurants and bars on Commercial, or to the skytrain to downtown is an effortless stroll through a tunnel of trees. The apartment would be great for two couples to explore Vancouver. I had great fun visiting, and I'll probably try to stay here again the next time I'm in town.
Inge's accommodations were 5 star. Everything was perfect. Her home was easy to locate and she was able to work with us on an early entry since our cruise ship arrived in the morning. She greeted us and gave us many tips on areas of interest. The patio apartment was just as the photos. Beautiful, clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable. We were able to do laundry and the kitchen was perfectly equipped. Her patio and garden are lovely. Inge was so nice and even called us a taxi to the airport. We would love to return and will refer friends to her. Thanks Inge!
We are first timers to Airbnb and Inge set the bar high for future bookings. This was our first family vacation to Vancouver and Inge really helped us feel right at home. From the initial booking stages Inge provided such great service and took a chance on us and welcomed us into her home as a family of four. The flat was so welcoming and stocked with all the necessities needed. From milk and bread to comfortable beddings, this house has it all! What really stood out to us were the cleanliness and comfort level. So amazing! We will definitely be recommending Inge to anyone who comes our way. Thank you again, Inge, for an amazing time in Vancouver. We'll be back someday (soon). Sheena and Family.
Inge was the perfect host. Pre arrival she Responded back to my questions with direct answers within an hour or two. When we arrived we easily got into the garden level flat which was clean and ready for my friend and I. She was there if you needed her and communicative without invading our privacy. I would definitely stay here again next time I go to Vancouver. Not to mention its next to the drive where Prado coffee and the best sushi restaurant in the city reside.
What a wonderful place! Such a sweet little apartment, all the amenities you need, very comfortable. Inge has thought of everything- even little chocolate on our pillows! She was very warm and welcoming, helped us find a good place to eat on Commercial Drive, and suggested walks in the neighbourhood. The street was quiet with beautiful big trees and it was easy to find parking. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway right in the city.
This is the best airbnb I have had the pleasure to stay in!! It felt just like home, and Inge thought of every little detail to make everything even more comfortable and easy to stay!

We had a wonderful time here, the strudel and yogurt parfait were excellent! Karin was well organized and very clean. They were very much accommodating and allowed us to store our bikes in the garage. We would return if available.

I would very highly recommend Karin and Herbert as hosts!

Susan and Hans were great hosts, very accommodating in providing for all our needs. We were greeted warmly with a glass of wine and conversation on the patio. They prepared a lovely breakfast. Hans even drove us to church and helped us to get a cab for an early flight the following day.
Susan and Hans were the perfect hostess and host. Their home was very clean and comfortableand we particularly enjoyed sitting on the lovely patio in the early evening. The location was excellent for taking public transportation into the city. The breakfast was a great way to start the day. I definitely would stay with Susan and Hans again.
What a warm welcome by Susan and Hans! I felt so comfortable in their beautiful home which is in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with them. I stayed two nights and came downstairs each morning to a lovely breakfast and great conversations. I would definitely stay again. Thank you Susan and Hans!

Susan and Hans made me feel so very welcome, even before I arrived..with great suggestions for restaurants and tours to do in the city. Their beautiful home was everything as described - clean, comfortable and in a quiet, safe, residential location, but with easy access into Vancouver city.

Add that to the fresh continental breakfast each morning, and I recommend anyone visiting Vancouver to stay at this little gem - you wont regret it. Thanks Susan and Hans for making my stay such a happy one....
Hi, thanks a lot! We really had a good stay, nice to meet you, Susan!

We could drop off our suitcases before the check-in time and we picked them up after check-out time because our flight was delayed. Susy and Hans are very helpful and nice people.
Hans was so accommodating and nice! He told us all we needed to know about Vancouver. The house was cute and beautiful and very clean. Overall it was a very comfortable and lovely stay. Susan was also very responsive through the airbnb messenger.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Jeff and Kathryn's place. It was clean and included all the amenities you could think of. We loved being next door to a park which was really handy for our dog. A close convenient store was also a great bonus that we weren't expecting.
good place to stay, quite comfortable and convenient. Jeff is nice. He made the coffee for us when we arrived and brought us delicious breakfast on the second day.
Jeff was lovely to deal with and the place had character that made it feel like the kind of Airbnb experience that I've come to enjoy over hoteling it.
We had a great time. The place was clean and comfortable. Nice patio to hang out in. The neighborhood is great, a couple of stores to walk to and lots of flowers and a fantastic park with a community garden to check out. The host was very friendly and welcoming with travel advice and helping us find a dentist.
The apartment was perfect. Everything was as described. The apartment was spacious with plenty of room for privacy. Great little neighborhood that is centrally located, we walked to Gastown. Her husband came down in the morning with coffee for the grinder and, get this: still-wartm scones with jam that he had made. He made great reccpmendations for brunch and the Museum of Anthropology. It was great and I hope to visit next year!
Great apartment:well equiped,nice interior, good location. Photos of the place are very accurate. We were very warmly welcomed by the host: he listened carefully to our needs and tried to meet them as good as possible.
Great communication before arrival and very friendly and helpful once we arrived, making sure we had everything we needed and knew what was around the area. The only thing to mention is that one of the bedrooms does not have a door. This wasn't clear in the photos & description. We would have preferred to have a door for both bedrooms, but it wasn't a big problem.
This was a great place to stay and would definitely book it again. The key was waiting for us, so we could quickly unload the car. They gave us a tour of the unit and then made us espresso and tea. We tried a local dinner recommendation and it was perfect. The unit was quiet and pet friendly.

We have truly enjoyed staying at Bo's place. It feels very homely, the 100 year old building is interesting, very well furnished, and very clean too. Nice! The area is perfect too, right in between the beach and 4th ave. Wonderful view from the balcony. The place is great for kids. There is everything they need, and our kids would rather play with the toys than leave the apartment! Just be aware that there is stairs to go down and outside. I would recommend borrowing their bikes and cycling around Stanley park and along False Creek, inclusive Granville Island and the Public Market. Thanks for all the tips to see the city :-)
Very stylish apartment in the heart of Kitsalano. Better than a boutique hotel!

6 out of 5 stars!!! Did you ever go on a vacation and the hotel, apartment, or house felt like you are coming home? Bo's place was like that for us! Not only is the vintage apartment super comfortable, charming and spacious enough for a family of four, but our little one could even play with the toys, use the kid's furniture and there was simply everything there that we needed! This made things so much easier for us and having all the convenience just like at home was so relaxing! Kitsilano is a fancy, family-friendly, up-and-coming neighborhood with great restaurants, shops/boutiques, as well as grocery stores, and the apartment is a short walk to the beach/Kits Public Pool (which I also rated 5/5 on Yelp!) We did not met Bo personally. All exchange was via airbnb messages and very quick responses (although he was several time zones away!). This sounds terrific, right? A full 5 out of 5 stars, well deserved. So, why the sixth star, you might wonder. Easy - the bedding! We love the 'duvet & duvet cover' kind of sleeping (no caught-up-in-the-tangled-sheets frustration!) and have a hard time getting used to the North American style. This gave us the ultimate like-at-home feel. THANK YOU, BO!
