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!
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.
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!
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.
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.

Bedroom a little small but perfect for one night, especially a romantic get away. Great location and very hospitable host!
Just as advertised. Very central, brand new. Araz was available immediately when I had a question. Great place, would stay again.
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
Araz was an excellent host. He was extremely communicative throughout my entire check in process and was available for me when I arrived to the city. The apartment was clean, modern, and extremely convenient to downtown. He also let me practice my Russian and gifted me and my friend an awesome bottle of Georgian wine to enjoy. спасибо большое Араз! все было супер!
Great location, super clean and quite. Welcoming wine tells the hospitality of the owner. Will definitely stay there for future trip!
The apartment is in a great location, easy walk to the sky train and with beautiful views of the mountains all around us! Araz was lovely through the whole booking process and even allowed us an early check in, which was much appreciated! The apartment has everything one needs for a comfortable stay and we specially liked that there was a laundry with laundry detergent we could use! I would highly recommend staying at Araz's place to anyone that wants a comfortable, clean and convenient place to stay in Vancouver!
What an amazing find. Located centrally in downtown Vancouver and beautifully maintained. Araz was an absolute pleasure to deal with and check in was seamless - he allowed me to check in early and was there cleaning the unit and helped me with my bags. The apartment had all the required amenities including a French press and of storage. Great room on a high level with a terrific view. Walk place to spend New Years. Minutes from amazing shopping, food and nightlife
Such a great location for exploring downtown Vancouver! Excellent host and clean, cozy, minimalist location perfect for 1-2 people! Had a wonderful experience, thank you Araz!

Great location, great value.
The downtown location is private and secure. We stayed two nights and found the home comfortable, spacious, clean and bright with a beautiful wide balcony. Surrounded by restaurants and stores, walking distance to the best of what Vancouver has to offer. Easy parking and serviced by public transportation. Joshua was warm and helpful making both our arrival and departure easy and enjoyable. Looking forward to returning again.
Joshua was a wonderful host during our trip to Vancouver and very responsive to our requests. The condo is located in a central location close to everything, with a grocery store right in front of the house, and a Shoppers Drugmart nearby. The location is safe and the condo is secure from access to strangers. We were impressed that the apartment was well-equipped with just about everything we needed - towels, Keurig machine and k-cups, iron and board, washing machine and cleaning supplies. The apartment was clean, modern and chic, with well-functioning Wifi and a super comfortable bed and great shower. Overall, we would stay here again if we come back to Vancouver. Thanks Joshua!
Great place! Very clean and centrally located. Setup and check in was very easy.
Location was very convenient and almost walkable from everywhere. Train stations are walking-distance as well. There were pockets of sketchy spots but not too bad. That's how it is being in the heart of downtown. The building where the airbnb is is very safe. The place was clean when we got there and Joshua was very accommodating of our early arrival. He responds very quickly for questions. I highly recommend Joshua's place! We would stay here again if we visit Vancouver.
As we had flown from the UK and arrived earlier than the stated admission time for the apartment, Joshua let us in so that we could settle in and rest - we really appreciated that.
The studio unit is very conveniently located in the city. The grocery is just at the building across it. The place is clean and well kept. Josh is an amazing host, very helpful and accommodating. I would wish to stay there when i visit the city again.
Joshua and his family were very welcoming. Met at the location and they directly handed the key to us and guided us the apartment and explain amenities available. The place is clean, modern and sleek. The furnitures are modern and comfortable, especially the king size bed. The bed is more comfortable than some of the luxury hotel bed, so we really appreciate that our host invested in quality furnitures. Both the apartment and parking structure are very secure. They even provided a pair of nice cold water bottle inside the fridge. Joshua is very responsive and can be easily contacted when we had questions. We had a great experience staying at his place and will not hesitate to stay there again in our future trips to Vancouver. Highly recommended.

Slava's place is clean and very central. I was attending a conference downtown and the location was perfect. Easy walking to shops and great restaurants too. Only thing that bothered me was the fluorescent lighting in bathroom and kitchen, but I am sensitive to this. Slava was easy to communicate with and responded to my messages right away.
Condo is super, clean, great location, a market right on the corner. Slava is very accommodating, he gave us good advice on the best places to visit. I recommend for a little or a long stay
I stayed at Slavas place with 3 other friends and it worked perfectly for us. It's a great, central location to downtown Vancouver. He was very responsive to my questions prior to arrival and arranged for his friend Ewa to give us the keys and show us the place. The bed was comfortable, the view was nice, and it was clean. It's within walking distance to a lot of good restaurants and shops. Ewa was also very responsive, friendly, and helpful. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone. Thanks Slava and Ewa!
Slava and Ewa were easy to get in touch with and responded immediately. A nice fruit basket and bottles of water were waiting for us.
Bill and Lois
The apartment was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Check in and check out were very simple and accommodating. The central location was perfect for exploring Vancouver and for returning to the airport at the end of our stay. Would not hesitate to recommend.
What amazing accommodations! Excellent communication with our gracious host! Within walking distance to everything! The grocery store directly across the street was so convenient!
Nice location. Nice view. Prompt communication. Thank you for hosting us.
We found Slava's condo well presented, clean, tidy and sunny. A fresh bowl of fruit along with bottled water and fruit "gummy bears" were on the table for our enjoyment. The condo looks out to Nelson Park so one does not feel cramped in an inner city space. It's location is within easy distance to Avis Rentals and Robson St for shopping. We certainly had a pleasant stay at Slava's place.

The time at Kathryn's was amazing. Probably the best we had at any Airbnb place. Kathryn and Jeff made everything possible to make our time in Vancouver the best. They gave as a lot of recommendations of what to do and where to go and we ended up having three great days in Vancouver. The place is conveniently located in a great neighborhood and if you want to walk downtown it takes you 20-30 minutes. If you take one of the many buses to downtown, it takes you 6-10 minutes. The breakfast in the morning was all you can ask for: organic yoghurt, nuts, hemp seeds, fruit and self-made coffee. Our room was clean and exactly as pictured. We had one of the three guest rooms upstairs and we got to know very nice, like-minded people all around the world and had great conversations. The upper three rooms share one bathroom, which was not a problem at all. All in all a great experience and we can definitely recommend this place.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The hosts were very nice and made us feel so welcome. They told us where to walk for dinner. The street was interesting to watch all the passing cyclists while chatting on the front porch and sipping tea. Breakfast and coffee served in the morning was great also. We will for sure stay here again.
A lovely home and very comfortable accomodations, convenient to the train station and just about anywhere in Vancouver by bike, with a bike lane right in front of the house. Kathryn and Jeff were wonderful hosts, delicious breakfasts with fresh expressos from a local roastery. They have an encyclopedic knowledge of tourist attractions in Vancouver and give excellent advice. Would love to stay there again anytime.
During my recent trip to BC and Seattle I stayed at a number of Airbnbs. Kathryn and Jeff's friendly way and beautiful home have no competition!! I would stay with them again in a second! They provided a delicious breakfast daily, including to order coffees! The room, bathroom and home was very clean and inviting. The location was perfectly nestled in walking distance to downtown and bike rentals. This was my first trip traveling alone and they made me feel at home and safe. Highly Recommended!!!
Gerald and Alison
The hosts were very friendly and informative, paying close attention to detail. The breakfasts and made to order coffees were excellent. Good bedroom but it was the host's inside knowledge of the city that made the experience special.
Look no more - this place is it. The room is beautiful and the pillows are fluffy. The room is calm, quiet, and ideal for travellers looking for a place to relax and rest after an eventful day. The street is tree-lined, peaceful, and also close to the city center. Free parking on the street. Neighbourhood bakery half a block away with good food. We slept well. Both the bedroom and the bathroom are modern, clean, and tastefully decorated. The room has clearly been furnished with care. The hosts are gracious and warm. Jeff and Kathryn did all they could to make us comfortable, including a late check-in past midnight. They went out of their way to accommodate our late arrival and make our stay pleasant. They were the ideal hosts. We'll tell our friends about this place.
I don't know where to begin but Jeff and Kathryn made us feel like family. I genuinely felt a great connection with them and they know the area so well that even during the points in the trip where we had no idea what to do, they would offer ideas of places to go and simultaneously made us feel at home during down times between destinations. They have put a lot of love into their home and the neighborhood is nice to walk through. The room itself is smaller than we were used to staying in but provided a comfortable resting place even during relatively warm summer days. Stay here if you're coming to Vancouver. They're great guides and the best hosts you'll find on AirBnb.
Hands down the best Airbnb we've ever stayed at! Amazing hospitality from Jeff; from all the recommendations he gave us, to the simple morning espressos for my partner and I. We can easily say that we'll choose their home for our stay next time in Vancouver.

Really fab Condo, exactly as the pictures showed. Shops and restaurants and the sky train just moments away. Check in and out was really easy. A fab stay. Thanks!
It's true - the view is pretty sweet! The stay went flawlessly. Nice swimming pool and decent gym. There were three individuals on the trip and we each had our own room. Would like to come back and stay a week at Sandy's.
Our stay could not have been more perfect. Sandy answered my reservation request and questions quickly. Arrival instructions were simple and the accommodations exceeded our expectations. The view was spectacular. We parked in the provided spot when we arrived on Friday and didn't drive again until we left on Sunday. Everything we needed was within walking distance. My husband told me not to leave a good review so we can keep the place a secret so it will be available the next time we are in Vancouver. :)
Great experience! First time using AirBNB. The kids wanted to move in. Would stay again!
We didn't get to meet Sandy as she was out of town, but we had a great stay at her condo. With two bedrooms, a den area with a futon, a spacious enough living room with a couch, and two full bathrooms, it was perfect for a weekend for six adults. It was spotless when we arrived, and we were given clear instructions for entry and everything else. It is also located within walking distance to many great restaurants. I'd highly recommend Sandy's place.
Super easy check-in and out - great location - definitely would recommend this place to everyone!
We had a wonderful stay at Sandys apartment- fantastic location - great amenities & the view could not be better! Would love to stay again!! Thank you :)
It was really fantastic and the view and photos mentioned are really true and correct. Very good place to stay with the family and friends and very peaceful location with great views.

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!
We enjoyed our stay with Sue and Mark, we had everything we needed and we knew that they were just upstairs if we needed anything else. We especially liked the tasty granola and jam that they left for us! The location is good, a quick bus ride into downtown or a nice 30 min walk along the cycle route. Commercial Drive is only a few blocks away. On the wall you'll find a list of recommended restaurants, we tried Via Tevere Pizzeria which was amazing!
The apartment looked just like the pictures. The location was perfect for our purposes, Mark and Sue were very friendly, and the apartment was stocked with some goodies for breakfast, which was very much appreciated. The bed was comfortable as well! Thanks!
Mark and Sue are awesome hosts, and the space is very lovely and extremely well taken care of. I don't think I've ever stayed at a cleaner AirBnB, and I've certainly stayed at some hotels that weren't as well maintained and clean as their space! On top of that, they're lovely guides to their neighborhood and all of Vancouver - the hardest part of the trip was not having enough time to talk to them and hit up all the places they recommended. Not only would I recommend staying with them to absolutely anyone - I already have told a few family and friends in the NW to look them up when they're up that way.
Sue was a great host! They have a super cute basement studio built into a beautiful home. She was easy to communicate with and everything was in perfect working order. Would definitely recommend this location to friends and would happily use again on another trip to Vancouver.
Sue's place is exactly like it is the pictures. Although we weren't able to meet with Sue because we arrived super late to Vancouver and then we're out and about most of the days we were there, we had a great experience. She was super communicative and quickly replied to us when we messaged her. Her place is about a mile from downtown Vancouver, which was easy to walk to on a nice little scenic bike route. Nice quite neighborhood near public transit if you don't want to walk.

Diego and his cousin were the most amazing hosts! I had just landed in Vancouver and they made my stay so comfortable. The place was extremely clean, the room and bed were nice and comfortable and the view of the city was amazing. Highly reccomend staying with Diego all year around! It has an amazing location and both Diego and his cousin are extremely friendly.
Diego was a great host. Very flexible and responsive. His place was lovely, and quiet despite the central location and having windows open. There was also parking which is amazing. Great little room, private and comfy.
The room was just as described in a beautiful, secure apartment in a really great neighborhood. Five stars!
They were super friendly!! Loved the area!! Easy to get around!!
I arrived a little late, but Diego was up and waiting for me! The place was spotless and what was pictured in the profile. The bed was comfortable and offered a FANTASTIC view of downtown. Overall, a great host and a great place! Thanks buddy!
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!
Diego was great! He was very prompt with communicating with me from the very beginning of my inquiry leading up until the day I left! His space was clean and the view from his condo was nothing short of an amazing view! I was located downtown and just steps away from shops, grocery stores and plenty of access to the subway and bike stores to rent out cycles and explore around. Diego was very comfortable with me doing anything I needed to go during my stay. This is the PERFECT place for a solo traveller and I plan on coming back to this place again!
Diego and Henrique are great guys and the apartment is in a perfect location. It is also clean and the room has a very nice view. I can certainly recommending this place her for single travellers or business travellers.

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
With this being our first AirBnB experience we weren't quite sure what to expect but I can say that from first contact to our final exit, this has been a total, 100% pleasant experience. Israel is prompt and clear in his communication, and a polite, patient and pleasant host. His home is impeccable and tasteful with delightful attention to detail, as can seen by the accurate photos, quite comfortable, and the view is stunning. We only stayed the one night this time but we were made so welcome and comfortable that it's a no-brainer to add his place to the top of the list for future overnight visits to the city. Thank you, Israel, for your gracious hospitality, I shall definitely be recommending your hospitality to all my friends and as a first AirBnb experience, this was definitely a win.
Nick & Jen
The pictures of Israel's apartment do not do it justice. It is beautifully decorated and has amazing large windows offering panoramic views of Downtown Vancouver. It is also perfectly located for exploring the heart of the city. Israel is a very communicative host and his directions and emails were extremely helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend Israel and his apartment.
Israel was very accommodating and friendly. Coordinated well on getting there and getting setup. I would definitely stay there again great location. Very walkable to a lot of cool locations.
Israel was a wonderful host, very helpful and accommodating. His place is very nice, well decorated and very comfortable. The location is great, it's just a short walk to the main shops. I was only there for the night, but I really liked it and would definitely stay again.
Great apartment located exactly where we needed it to be when attending a concert at Rogers Arena, walking distance away. Israel was a gracious host and very accommodating. I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a place downtown with an awesome view!
We liked the place so much that we stayed here again. Israel's apartment is great - very stylish and modern. If you're looking for a clean and cozy place to stay in the heart of the city, this is it! :-)
Israel made us feel right at home. He provided us with clear and concise directions making our journey as smooth as possible! Excellent host!
It was a fantastic albeit short stay. Fantastic views! Great location. Israel was a gracious host though we didn't really run into each other. I would stay here again.

Kari's place was perfect for my wife and I. Awesome view of downtown vancouver, right near Granville st. where there is a lot of night life. We walked all over or grabbed cabs right out front if we were going across town. We would definitely stay there again!
There is a reason why Kari is a super host! I stayed here recently for a quick trip to Vancouver and the place is great. Kari's condo is very central and located near restaurants, shopping, and public transit... did I mention Granville Entertainment District is literally steps away? Not only is the location great, the apartment itself is just as you see it in the pictures. Super clean, modern, & cozy... also that wrap around balcony is something else!
We had a great time here. Kari was super nice, everything was easy from check-in to checkout. The location is amazing, very clean, great views of the city. We able to walk everywhere. The restaurants nearby are awesome. Close to the train back to the airport too.
Absolutely loved staying at Kari's apartment! The apartment is clean, modern and comfortable and in an excellent location for all the sights. Kari is also a very accommodating host allowing us to check in slightly early, and storing our cases on check out day due to our late flight. Would highly recommend staying at this apartment
Very good central location. Good communication with host.
It was great! She was quick to respond and professional.
Steve & Stefany
Great hosts, very accommodative to our arrival time, great communication. Beautiful place, a little smaller than it seems in the listing, but the HUGE outdoor patio made up for it and more. Awesome views, close to lots of restaurants, nightlife, grocery stores, coffee shops. Would stay here again for sure.
This place was awesome! It had a wonderful deck overlooking the city. Two blocks away from a ton of awesome bars and clubs. Affordable parking and a cool market next door. Would definitely recommend!

Scott & Shira's communication prior to our stay was excellent, and they were super helpful to us as Airbnb newbies. We enjoyed the apartment & loved Main St in general. It's about a 1 hour gentle walk in to downtown Vancouver but there are also regular buses that run up & down main if you don't fancy the walk. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Vancouver.
Yet another great Airbnb experience! This is such a cute, cozy little place. Bed was super comfy, everything was just as it said on the listing. Although we never met Scott and ashida they left a sweet note for us when we got there, great hosts. The location was also incredibly convenient.
Didn't get to meet the guys but they were really helpful in the run up to our stay- the location is great and only a short bus/sky train from downtown etc. It's a really cool neighbourhood, felt very safe and the apartment is beautiful! Thank you for letting us stay :)
Our stay was perfect, we had everything we needed and more. Scott and Shira made sure that our stay in Vancouver was enjoyable.
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).
Great little apartment just off Main Street. Great access to many local restaurants and local fare.
Lovely hosts, and a lovely apartment. Had a really pleasant stay!
Charmingly cozy space, set up with a good eye for design! Everything was well provided and explained. Scott and Shira are excellent hosts

The garden suite was comfortable and the space was nicely decorated, as shown on the photos by Josee. The suite was convenient as it is 2 blocks away from a bus (#49) that goes to both UBC and a train station and 1 block away from a bus (#22) that goes straight to downtown. The amenities were adequate for my husband and I as there were plates, cooking pots, a microwave, etc. The towels and toilet paper were well-stocked as well. The only imperfection of the garden suite is the noise from upstairs. I think the main parts of the house above the basement (i.e. the garden suite) are being renovated. So expect to be woken up by footsteps and saw if you plan to sleep in past 9 am. Josee has been a great host and I really appreciated her responding to me within an hour.
The place was very clean and cozy. No problem with check-in/check out. Josee was always keep in touch. Highly recommend this awesome place!
My friends and I loved staying in Josée's apartment. The apartment was very welcoming and neat and clean and in a very lovely and safe neighbourhood. The layout was very nice and although it is a smaller place we were able to all fit comfortably. The biggest issue was probably trying to fit two people on the pull down sofa but after the first day it wasn't too bad. Josée was very friendly and readily available to answer any questions that I had, whether it was how to use the television or recommendations for restaurants. The location was perfect as we were able to transit to downtown Vancouver very easily and quickly. A lot of little restaurants and stores around for convenience as well. It was very nice to also have a washer and dryer to use as well. Would definitely recommend and book to stay with Josée's again.
Fantastic location and beautiful place to stay. Very clean and felt like an upscale hotel. I would absolutely stay here again!

Jose was extremely professional and the entire experience was very smooth. The apartment was exactly as described and completely spotless...even cleaner than a hotel room. We found everything we needed and were very happy and comfortable staying there. One of our best AirBnB experiences!
Josee was a great host and the accommodations were clean, comfortable, functional and stylish. She was kind enough to have the place ready for 10 AM (instead of 2 PM), and notified us of this a day prior so we could take advantage of early check-in. The coded entry lock took a couple of minutes to figure out, but overall it was easy to operate once we got the hang of it. The parking is right on the street and we usually managed to find a spot very close to the entrance, which was great for unloading/loading. The convenience of the fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities make a stay of a few days or longer feel more like home, which was great for exploring a new city. We didn't get to explore the local neighborhood very much, but the immediate area was fairly quiet, which was to our liking. The bedroom was cozy and the bed very comfortable. The sofa bed in the living room - although understandably not as comfortable as the bed - was also decent for sleeping on. Neither the bedroom, nor the living room, comes with light proof blinds. So if you like to sleep in and it's a sunny day, that might present an issue. That being said, we did not experience that during our stay, so that was either good luck or the sun simply rises on the other side. We didn't have to contact Josee for much as everything was very clear. However, during those times we did reach out, her replies were clear and extremely prompt. In short, we would absolutely recommend the place to family and friends and would be happy to stay again next time we are in Vancouver!
Our stay here was great! The place was exactly as advertised. No surprises. The place was quite spacious and very homey. The renovations done are great and will definately stay here again. Josee, the host was also very accessible by phone. Totally satisfied. Thanks again Josee!
Lovely stay. Josee is lightning quick with communication, check in/out was a snap with keyless entry, place itself was immaculate and very tastefully decorated.

Cathy and Tom were both great: relaxed, caring and efficient. The place is very clean, well organized and pretty. Even though I stayed for a long period (more than 3 weeks) and the place is rather small, I felt very comfortable all the time. I had a great, great time in Vancouver! Thank you both,
Cathy and Tom's place was great! It was my first airbnb experience and I recommend this suite for anyone coming to Vancouver. Never met Cathy or Tom as I was writing exams at UBC and was mostly gone during the day, but they made sure everything was fine after I first checked in. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was nice and bright, and the little extras of oatmeal, tea, coffee and milk were appreciated. Thanks!
Tom greeted us and showed us to our lovely and very private home away from home. We had our own washer/dryer, kitchen stocked with microwave, coffee maker, coffee, individual home-made fixings for oatmeal, granola bars, large walk-in shower, toiletries, comfortable bed and flat-screen TV, good reading light, and plenty of drawer and hanging space. Heaven! We hated to leave!
We had a great stay. The apt. was as advertised - tasteful, clean and comfortable. The hosts were lovely and great about communicating information. We really enjoyed our stay. Sitting out back on the patio was especially enjoyable.
We loved staying at Cathy's beautiful self contained suite. It was in a great location, close to shops and only a 20 min bus ride to downtown. It was very clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable and the shower was fab! The space is bright modern and has all the extra loving details, like breakfast, snacks, coffee etc. We loved staying here and highly recommend it!
This is a great place to stay, as long as you bear in mind that this is a basement studio and accept a little noise (but not a lot) from upstairs. The neighbourhood is quiet and green with ample parking and easy access to Vancouver. We had a car. The place was squeaky clean and well appointed, very comfortable with everything you need. Cathy and Tom were very welcoming and Cathy even gave us a lift into Kitislano when it was raining - literally going the extra mile! Definitely recommend.
Our first Airbnb in Canada could not of been better thanks to Cathy and Tom and their wonderful place. Communication was great and any questions or querys we had were answered quickly. You have everything you could need it was perfect and very easy to get the bus into downtown. Appreciated the recommendation to try Bigsby and Butter only 10mim walk away food was delicious. Would not hesitate to book again.
I spent a wonderful stay in Cathy and Tom's suite. The suite is super clean and tidy. I appreciated every accommodation they had made. The oatmeals, the coffee and bottle of milk make me feel warm and welcome. Cathy is a great host, everytime I message her, she replys me quickly. Also, they leave me great privacy. The location of the suite is very convenient, just take a five-minute walk you can get access to several bus lines station. It's such an unforgettable experience! If I have a chance to visit vancouver again, I would definitely choose their home again.

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
This is the second time I've stayed here, great experience. It's my new go to place when I'm in Vancouver.
Just returned from staying in this lovely apartment. Cosy and compact and had everything we needed. Lovely and quiet position yet very close to Main Street shops, bars, restaurants and easy bus route to get into downtown etc. We had a car but used the bus's too as so easy. The apartment has info packs with helpful local info etc. Reef Caribbean restaurant was amazing and El Camino's and both within walking distance. Would defo recommend this accommodation, own private entrance too. Heidi and her husband were both very helpful and the fresh fruit loaf and bagels were much appreciated on our arrival. Weather was fab and beds very comfy. Only bad thing was having to come Home!
Another great experience with an airbnb. The unit is just as described. Check in and out were a breeze. Heidi has prepared very informative booklets with useful info about he surrounding area including stores, restaurants, and menus. The location was quite central to the activities that we had planned and was in a seemingly quiet and safe neighborhood.
I am originally from Vancouver, and 5 months ago, my family relocated to the US. I had to return for administrative reasons, and I knew I wanted to be back in my old neighbourhood! For those of you reading this who are not from Vancouver: why would you want to stay downtown with all the tourists when you can stay in East Van with all the locals (who have great taste in food, wine, beer and coffee!!)?! It was such a pleasure to stay at Heidi's place. It was designed to make a guest feel like home, that's for sure! After a long day of errands, I poured myself a glass of wine and enjoyed it in front of the fire. It was absolutely lovely, and I would 100% stay there again. Many thanks Heidi! Think of me whenever you have Pizza Barbarella and a coffee at Matchstick! My two local faves that I miss so much. Five stars for this flat and its amazing location.
Heidi was an incredible host. She was responsive, honest, helpful and couldn't have been more accommodating. The Sophia suite was awesome and perfect for our family of four. The kitchen, bathroom, laundry and bedrooms were completely equipped with whatever we may need. We felt we had our own private apartment with the close resource of Heidi if we needed any type of help. Everytime I sent an email to her, she responded in what seemed to be LESS than one minute. We loved her, her place and Vancouver. Her neighborhood was safe and closely located to Main Street where we found lots of restaurants, coffee shops and a great grocery store. We want to be sure to stay with Heidi again when we get back to Vancouver. We really felt like it was our home because of her work and attention.
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!
We absolutely adored the Sophia Suite! Everything from the amenities box and freshly baked muffins to the adorable decorative touches were just wonderful. It truly made our weekend stay so comfortable. Thank you for everything, Heidi!
Excellent location with good restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Although the bedrooms are quite small, the space in the apartment is functional and well thought out. We appreciate the capsule coffee machine and complimentary snacks and spring water were much welcomed after a long and tiring journey. The host is warm and responsive. We would come back :)

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!
Nice studio. Clean and everything is as described in the listing. Full cable TV and Wi-Fi are easy to connect and use. Good internet speed. All toiletries, towels, kitchen gadgets and utensils are prepared for you. There are even coffee and tea and condiments provided. We didn't cook but I can imagine cooking would not be a problem at all as all the essentials are there. Even dish soap and laundry detergent are provided. Quiet neighbourhood. We didn't use the patio due to the weather. It's easy to find parking on the street. We parked right at front of the house on the both nights we stayed (Friday and Saturday and we didn't return until late at 11-ish am). Good location, Granville Island, downtown Vancouver, Richmond are all within 30 minutes even with traffic. We've never met Mj in person but the communication is easy and smooth. Highly recommended.
Wonderful, quaint and quiet studio with a fantastic use of space. MJ is also very helpful and easily accessible. Highly recommend!
Very well kept property! Great location. Josee is great with communication.
Cozy room . Nice stay. We enjoyed it very much.
Staying at Josee's was great. The studio was perfect for our needs. Clean, comfortable and everything we needed was available, and well stocked enough to cook all meals. Josee is a fantastic communicator through and through, always on hand to assist and advise .. and Breka's cafe was fabulous! I can definitely recommend staying here and will do so again when next in Vancouver.
Thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Never met hosts but responded to all emails quickly and was very accommodating when I asked to check in a few hours early. Very cute studio apartment. Clean and modern. Bed very comfy. Cozy patio for morning cup of coffee. Would stay again. Great value.

My fourth (and hopefully more to come) review at Jessy's Vancouver AirBnb. Everything was great. You're visiting Vancouver. A vibrant and beautiful city. Vancouver is known as a city with good coffee and sushi. Imagine being able to go out from your AirBnb walk no more than 3 minutes to the nearest IGA (grocery store) buy some Colombian coffee beans, freshly roasted and walk back to the apartment where conveniently there's a kettle and a coffee press. Sip that coffee as you look out the wide windows at the hustle and bustle of Vancouver life then get right back to typing. There's lots of amenities at this AirBnb and it's very comfortable. Better than a hotel as I mentioned. You're near downtown Granville Street but far away to avoid the mess and noise. It's near offices and transit with a few minutes walk to most places; you're very central. I really like this Airbnb. By the way check out (URL HIDDEN) if you're interested in learning more about Vancouver!
Fantastic place - great location, transport right outside the door, clean and completely hassle free! Jessy was amazing to deal with and we would definitely stay there again. Thank you.
Stay here if you want to be close to everything in downtown Vancouver! Jessy's space was clean, simple, and comfortable - and the view was cool too. We were able to walk to most places we wanted to go in 10-15 minutes. She made it easy to check in and out. The bed was very comfortable too. Thanks Jessy!
This is my 3rd time booking with Jessy on AirBnb which in itself says a lot about the accommodation. Nothing but good things to say about this AirBnb. I would recommend it over other apartment listing downtown. Being familiar with Vancouver, I really enjoy the location. The building is very quiet and has an excellent view of Vancouver down Burrard street. You will also appreciate that the apartment unit has many big windows allowing natural lighting during the day. It's also very spacious in design; you won't be cramp for a one bedroom. Next, the decor is simple and good which I appreciate. It's south facing so you skip the heat of the evening sun but you still get to enjoy the occasional sunny day in Vancouver :) Jessy's AirBnb has been the BEST AirBnb I've booked so far downtown for a one-bedroom apartment. I would have no qualms recommending it. The perfect AirBnb downtown. This is my go-to AirBnb for downtown Vancouver. Lastly as I've mentioned it before but will again in this review, the transaction with Jessy was an ease. Check in and check out without any issue. Jessy is a great person to deal with. Both Jessy and her boyfriend are very friendly, genuine people.
We had a fantastic stay in Vancouver, which was our first trip there. The location of the venue couldn't have been any better with everything we wanted an easy stroll away. We also took Jessy's food recommendation and went to Joe Fortes - which was a top spot! Thanks Jessy
Spacious apartment in a great location! The flat was very clean and had everything we needed during our stay.
The apartment is so good , it just like the photos and the building is calm . i chose it because i had a congres in the convention center and really the apartment is 10-15 min walking and 5 min in bus ( the stop of the bus is in front of the building ) . everything you is just near the apartment . I didn't have the chance to meet Jessy but she was available .
This is a lovely apartment,comfortable and in a great location. The floor to ceiling windows give you a wonderful city scape with plenty of sky, too, and even a water view around corners. The Bed is very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, there is a large grocery store nearby if you want to cook, the security is great, and public transporation is not far away, nor are taxis at the hotel nearby. Wireless worked well, we really didn't want for anything and best of all, Jessy is a superb host. We had anumber of questions and some specific needs that cropped up for us. She was on it as soon as I texted or emailed her and I can only give her an A+ in terms of being a helpful host. My husband and I would definitely stay there again.

Imagine coming after a long travel into a perfectly clean place with fluffy fresh towels comfy beds and all the other things you might need for a great stay. We want you to feel the love that was put into it, to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The price includes Parking and High Speed WiFi, Apple TV. A very quiet apartment in a concrete building. You will have access to squash room, sauna and hot tube (on the 3rd level) Laundry room (on the 2nd level) same as your own parking spot and recycling. It's a 2 bedroom apartment with a queen size bed in each room. Also a queen size air mattress is available upon request. You have a big living from with Apple TV, DVD, WIFI and some games to entertain yourself. Nice balcony and fully equipped kitchen, dining table that fits 6 people. The bathroom has everything you need just enjoy! Also in the building there is a hot tub and a squash room, laundry is in the second level same as your own parking spot and recycling. I put some of my favorite places on the interactive map, they include tips on the dining, night life and attractions of Vancouver. Just a few blocks away is the Davie street with some of my favorite shopping and food places. The apartment is ins a quiet building with very respectful neighbors. The apartments are privately owned and the building is well maintained. As per city and neighborhood I don't think it gets more safe than this. Downtown it is very walkable and perfect for biking city but the transit is well developed, the buss stops are within 2 blocks and the skytrain is 10 min away if you need to go somewhere further. Also you have your own secure underground parking in case you will drive. 2 blocks from the beach and the harbor ferry that goes to some of the best attractions in town. The buses are just around the corner but the best is to bike, everything you need is within few minutes of biking. Bike rental at the corner. The location is near the aquatic center if you love fitness, the beach is close for jogging, biking or just walking.read more
The house and the location was great. We had so much fun!. Thanks
Great little place in a great location. This place is easy for everything -car parking, walk to shop & restraunts, bike hire on next corner, 10min ride to Stanley Park, 2min walk to ferry wharf, 2min walk to Elizabeth beach ! Rite in the city with out the city hassell's .
Great location for weekend visitors. Easy walk to Granville Island and Stanley Park. The apartment is very clean with all the amenities you could want for a vacation. Having a parking spot included was a major plus. Checking in and out with George was very easy.
George made us feel very welcome, answering our questions without delay. The listing was accurate and the unit was clean and updated. Everything we needed was provided. An extra air mattress was even supplied for my young son. Parking was supplied in the building and we were close to the beach and the Granville Island ferry. Overall a great experience!
This is a great small condo within easy walking distance of plenty of restaurants and bars, and with a gated garage for parking. Lots of closet space for longer stays, and an Apple TV for entertainment. The stove takes an exceptionally long time to heat up, so if you're planning on cooking, turn the burner on at least 5 minute before you plan on using it. Additionally, if you plan on using the third bed (an air mattress), you'll want to notify George, as he questioned our usage of it when we set it up ourselves even though our reservation said three people. Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay, and I highly recommend it!
Fantastic location, close to the water, right downtown with Restaurants and shopping within walking distance. George made the process so easy, and was very welcoming. The place is very clean and quiet, with comfortable beds and a great living space. I would highly recommend it!
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.
George was so nice! He's not living around but super responsive if I have any question. The apt is bigger than I thought, and as clean as the picture showed. My dad is a hotel manager so he has a very high standard of living space of his trips, but he turned out to love the apt so much. The neighbors are very quiet.

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 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. :)

Monika was the perfect host, helpful, bubbly and caring. It was our first experience with online accommodation and a truly positive one. The condo was just as advertised spotlessly clean, exceptionally equipped and in a peaceful, well placed location. We would definitely recommend this place and would not hesitate to stay there again should we visit 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!
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.
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.
The apartment is well-situated in the city, in a peaceful neighborhood not far from shops and restaurants. Monika was a great host, very flexible with the arrangements. She was gracious and welcoming.
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.

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!!
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.
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!
If you are looking for a lovely house on the city's edge, then Berit's house is the perfect location. The house has everything you need and Berit was a lovely host who made sure we had everything we need. It was also great to sit out in her yard for dinner when the weather was nice. About a 20-30 min walk to the city, 5-10 mins to Chinatown, and also close proximity to many cafes and restaurants nearby. The local grocer is 1 minute away so made it very convenient to get last minute groceries and supplies. There is also free parking on the side streets if you have a car. Overall we had a lovely stay, and would definitely recommend her place!
Our month long stay this past July at 446 Union St was just perfect. Our hosts, Berit and Sholto, were very helpful prior to our stay, responding to my many questions and emails promptly. Upon arrival, I and my two 16 yr olds, settled into our space with ease and enjoyed the feeling of being in a home away from home. The house is perfectly situated on the edge of Chinatown in the neighbourhood of Strathcona. The Adanac bike path passes right in front of the house and provided for the best means of seeing the city and sea. I cycled every day and the kids took transit everywhere with ease. Using translink for bus schedules and (URL HIDDEN) for planning how to get from A to B was fantastic. Berit and Sholto provided items for our breakfast and were most accommodating of our preferences. Sholto is a talented furniture designer with a workshop in the backyard of the house where he creates his unique and beautiful designs. He works out of a home office in the upstairs of the home and is on-site most days and happily makes himself available to answer any questions and make suggestions. I really enjoyed our morning conversations along with his Intern from Brazil. This was in addition to the wonderful package of information (restaurants, stores etc) and house instructions that Berit compiled which we received upon arrival. You will not find nicer people than Berit, Sholto and their son Finn. I would return in a heart beat. Miss them and Vancouver already!
Perfect urban rental. Very clean and comfortable place. More than enough space for our party of 2 couples. Sholto and Berit have great taste and furniture and the house is well-designed all around. Big yard for morning meals or hanging out in the evening. Sholto and Berit were very welcoming and accommodating: we arrived to a big bowl of fresh local blueberries, peaches and nectarines, plus they stocked coffee, granola, yogurt and milk for us. They even let us use their b8kes! Location and neighborhood are ideal for being close to lots of cool areas of the city but not many tourists around. We'd definitely stay again if available. Highly recommended!

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
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.
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!
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
Rami was very accomodating to myself and my colleagues. Great stay, great conmunication and will definitely recommend to others! Location can't be beat.

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!
We had an excellent stay in Inge's comfy flat. She and Thomas were most welcoming and very gracious, accommodating and caring hosts. The location would be hard to beat: so many things so handy and getting around on transit was a breeze. Inge goes out of her way to make sure that you are comfortable and enjoying your stay while at the same time being completely non-intrusive. On a return trip to Vancouver we would hope to be able to make arrangements with Inge again - we have no complaint at all about anything during our 8-day rental of this lovely apartment. It is very well provisioned and Inge adds so many little touches to make certain that you will feel comfortable and be able to settle right in on arrival. Little touches like available tea & coffee and milk, some bread & English muffins and jam & butter too, some fruit and chocolate and a spare set of keys were all very much appreciated! Helpful instructions and guides were also all set out - Inge has thought of everything to make sure that you're all set to go from the instant you enter the flat and that you'll comfortably enjoy your stay for its entire duration. We have no criticisms to make at all (and we would not hesitate to list any that might apply); Inge and Thomas were fantastic hosts. Our only regret was that, with our busy schedule while in Vancouver, we didn't have more opportunity to interact with our engaging hosts. Everything Inge describes about her home, its location and all of the local amenities is spot on - she cares about ensuring your comfort and your ability to find your way around if you are not familiar with Vancouver and its environs. If visiting Vancouver and looking for a place to stay - book with Inge if you can, you will not regret it!
Inge's place was the perfect place to stay to see vancouver from. The flat was well equipped and very clean. Inge had left lots of nice extras such chocolates on the pillows and some basics left in the apartment which was a nice touch. Commercial Drive had lots going on with some nice places to eat and have drinks (Kishimoto was excellent if you like sushi). The flat is a ten minutes walk to the train station and main bus routes so everywhere is easily accessible. Inge was out of town when we visited but was very easy to get hold of and very informative and helpful before we came. Would definitely recommend.
We (2 persons) really enjoyed our stay at Inges place. She was really thoughtful and kept in contact with us for any questions although she was on holidays. Apartment is very clean and modern, 10 min fast walk from sky train station Commercial Drive-Broadway, really nice garden and neighbourhood. We would definitely recommend to stay at Inges place.
Inge was a wonderful host! This was our first time in Vancouver and staying at Inge's apartment really made the trip special. Her place was immaculately clean. We really appreciated the special touches - toiletries, snacks, coffee and little notes about how to get around. We got to meet Inge as we were checking out and she was super friendly and helpful about places to go. Her apartment was beautiful, and we really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony surrounded by bright flowers. It's conveniently located to lots of places to eat. We also found it easy to get downtown, to Stanley Park and even to North Vancouver for some hiking. I only have positive things to say! Highly recommend this host.
Inge's apartment is located in a nice neighborhood, has a good layout and is perfectly maintained and equipped. The commute to the city centre is easy and there are a lot of eat outs near by. Inge was very helpful and provided us with a lot of recommendations for activities in and around Vancouver. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come again when visiting Vancouver.
This must be one of the best places to stay in Vancouver. Very friendly host, very clean, beautiful and well-equipped flat. And with the skytrain around the corner, a stonethrow away from downtown.

On Sundays there is a farmers' market half a block up the street and you might find me there selling the gourmet jams you enjoyed for breakfast. direct bus going to UBC and Pacific Spirit Park leaves right on our block, the buses to downtown and the beaches are 2 blocks away and will get you there in no time at all. From Vancouver International Airport just take the Canada Line (towards downtown) and transfer at Cambie Street & King Edward Avenue to bus #33 (westbound), which will drop you off on our block (Vine & W-16th Ave.). We don't have air conditioning (since we live in a temperate climate) but have fans for warm summer nights. We do live in our home as well and guests use the main entrance. Our home is on a main street. If you are from a rural area or are planning to stay in a lot during the day, you might hear the traffic (especially during rush hour).read more
Karin's home in Kitsilano is welcoming and lovely, and so is she. Karin provided a perfect balance between giving us our privacy, and being there for a nice chat. We enjoyed a nice couple of days here, and especially loved the breakfast. All homemade, organic and some items even gluten free! A great start of the day. Would recommend her home to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in this beautiful part of Vancouver!

Karin and Herbertus are gracious hosts and their house is in the most pristine and central and elegant neighborhood in town. They had a binder full of useful information and maps. There is nothing better than Karin baked home goods for breakfast. We recomend to stay at they house with a biiiiig thumb up
Karin's home and hospitality was wonderful!! The room was perfect for our needs and she even graciously helped us with small incidents which popped up along the way (e.g. Finding our way around, finding help for a lost jacket while touring and broken sunglasses). She prepared food for us and made sure all was in working order. The bed was soooo ultimately comfy which was perfect plus! Overall a great place to stay!
Gracious and accommodating hosts, in a great location... we had a very pleasant stay
Our host Karin was awesome; Very pleasant and polite and I enjoyed our visits. She was home to greet us and get us set up in our room (even though we arrived at supper time) . Her home is very comfy and cozy and is just as you see it in the pics. There is always a delicious treat waiting for you at breakfast time as well. The area she is in was perfect for me, as my daughter lives only a few blocks away. It has very easy access to explore Vancouver if you wish to. This was my first time using Airbnb, and it was a very positive experience. I would definitely stay with Karin again. Oh... and her dog Nikita is very sweet as well. :-)
Karin's place was exactly what we we looking for and Karin was a great host. We loved the beautiful, quiet neighbourhood and the walks to the shops and restaurants were pleasant. Our room was very private, clean, and comfortable. Thanks, Karin for the delicious baked goods and the helpful tips on where to visit and how to get there.
Karin was very friendly and made our stay wonderful. She provided us with treats every morning-cute little yogurt parfaits, fresh fruit and apple crisp. She also provided us with her homemade blend of herbal tea that was exquisite. She gifted us with some of her homemade bluebarb jam (blueberry and rhubarb). It did not last long, we ate it all up! Karin has a notebook that is very thorough in describing where to eat, tourist's attractions, how appliances work in the room, etc. Very helpful. Her house is beautiful and well maintained.
Karin was so nice keep waiting for us so late that night. The room was neat and comfort, the garden was pretty. We love the snacks, coffee and herbal tea Karin left for us! She also gave us good advise to find tasty Japanese restaurant nearby. The naighbor hood is lovely and quite, good for running in the morning. And there is a super market in the corner which is very convience. I was so lucky meet Karin when I using airbnb at the first time.

My family and I had a great stay at Susan’s house. Susan and Hans were super gracious hosts, providing all the information about the rooms I would need and offering to answer any questions and provide recommendations for us to explore Vancouver. The rooms was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Once again thank you Susan for a pleasant stay!
Our stay with Susan and Hans was fabulous! They were both so accommodating, friendly, and a joy to be around. The rooms were great and their home is less than a 10-15 min drive to city center and other popular sports in Vancouver. Looking forward to keeping in touch!
It was such a nice stay in this really sweet and beautiful house! Susan and Hans were very friendly and helpful and there was a really nice breakfast every morning! Would highly recommend!
Very beautiful house, clean and comfortation. It is also very convinient to take a public bus to the downtown. Susan and Hans are very considerate and helpful. Thank you. I would love to come back.
It is quite a nice stay. We had two days in Susan's house for the last 2 days of our honeymoon travel. Susan is kind and her introduction to the house and areas around are all-round. The house itself is a lovely place with different decoration styles in different rooms and the flourished garden is also enjoyable to be seated in when having breakfast. The street is quiet and a few blocks away are with various choices of food. Overall it is worthwhile to recommend the place.
Had a great stay! They offered us a very cute room and the bathroom was huge with all the things required. Hosts were very friendly and explained to us the places that we could visit during our stay in Vancouver. Great location! 10 minutes from the airport and just a minute away from the bus stop that takes you to downtown.
I very much loved the stay in this nice and calm neighborhood. Susan & Hans were great hosts. Hans prepared a fruity breakfast every morning and I was allowed to cook dinner in their kitchen. They gave me a lot of good recommendations what to do and see in Vancouver and Vancouver Island. I was allowed to do my laundry and to sit in their beautiful backyard whenever I wanted to. Definitely a great place to stay.
I had a delightful stay. Though Susan wasc away, Hans was a most welcoming host. Their home is lovely, comfortable and very conveniently located. I give them my highest recommendation.

Great experience! The place was clean and spacious, with everything that we needed. Neighborhood was very safe, and it was close to the city center. No issues with the communication and getting there. Thanks for all the help!
Jeff and Kathryn were amazing hosts; very caring, helpful, understanding, and accommodating. The house was nice and bright and it fit our large crew. The place is in a great neighbourhood, close to a lovely bakery, and all the amenities one could ask for close to downtown Vancouver. We would highly recommend this place to anyone and we will happily come back next time we are in town. Thank you Jeff and Kathryn for allowing us into your home!
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.
Kathryn and Jeff were great hosts who were quick and easy to communicate with. They were happy to help out with little things whilst we stayed and the apartment was well furnished.
Convenient location and very comfortable apartment. Facilities provided were excellent.
Jeff and Kathryn were excellent hosts! We stayed in their large private lower level apartment. The apartment has a wonderful private patio and lots of space including a large kitchen/dining/living space. The kitchen is equipped with a high end coffee/espresso machine which was stocked with delicious local beans. Jeff happily shared reviews of local restaurants, coffee, breweries as well as sharing his growler of a local ESB with us as we were settling in for our 2 night stay. If you plan on checking out any of the local breweries feel free to ask Jeff to borrow one of his growlers to save some cash on your fill up!
Paul and Catherine
This was a great place to stay. One of the most comfortable beds ever. Great shower, kitchen and it was nice to have a second bedroom for storage. Jeff was very helpful in all aspects of our stay. He recommended great sights to see and local restaurants. He also helped us carry our heavy suitcases and cooler up the steps to pack. I highly recommend this wonderful apartment.
Kathryn and Jeff were extremely welcoming to us, and the space was a delight to stay in. It was the perfect size for three of us, with a spacious living area and two bedrooms with the comfiest beds I've ever slept in. Jeff greeted us and gave us a run down of the amenities as soon as we arrived, on top of suggesting some great activities and restaurants. He even brought us a growler of beer! Couldn't ask for a better Airbnb experience.

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!
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 :-)
