From New Westminster, BC (suburb of Vancouver but it's own funky little walkable city with tons of history). Love to be outside, surfing, snowboarding, hiking with our dog and 2 spirited tots!

We had a wonderful time in New Westminster. Lena was wonderful accommodating our needs, and her house was perfect for us. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for everything, Lena!
We had an amazing stay in Lena and James'. The suite is clean and spacious, a perfect fit for two people. It is bright thanks to three windows. But the best characteristic is the furniture and the kitchen equipment: you can really feel like at home.
If you need to go often to Vancouver Downtown consider that it can take a while and since the house is in New Westminster you are in zone 2: it can be expensive without fare saver ticket or a monthly ticket. Of course, it is not Lena and James' fault: the home is so perfect that you can forget it :)
We were very happy with our stay at Lena's. They were helpful and accommodating. The apartment was clean and had everything that we needed. Thank u for making our stay in Vancouver such a nice one.
From my auntie, who stayed here:
Perfect little efficiency apartment in New West!
I spent the month of August at Lena's and James' rental in New Westminster and could not have been happier! This is an ideal little spot for a single person or couple (with the opportunity to take another attached lock off-bedroom if needed). The huge windows provide a beautiful, peaceful view of the yard and the magnificent trees in behind - a nice view to "come home to". The lay-out is spacious and homey. The kitchen is very well equipped with necessary utensils and then some. Very comfortable bed, satellite TV, Wi-Fi and own laundry facilities make for a most pleasant, comfortable and easy stay. Lena, James and their two children are helpful and delightful. Shopping for all necessities is within a few blocks and you are just three blocks from beautiful Queen's Park. A very easy place around which to navigate - but be prepared for hills when walking!
I am almost wary of placing a high score on this place - because I definitely plan to stay there again - and do not want it to be booked solidly!!!! High marks it gets however! Thanks again Lena!
Response from Lena:
Annette and Tanya, thank you for the wonderful review! We certainly loved having you stay with us and hope that you do again... All the best and thanks again! Lena
Lena is very accommodating and saved us some necessary stress with our travel plans. Responds quickly. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful Home.
It was one of the best!
I usually rent homes when I go down to Vancouver, but I will say that this is one of the best I have rented. The home was very nice, the owners we're very responsive and it made my vacation one that I will never forget. Definitely one that I will recommend to all my coworkers, friends and family.
Response from Lena:
Thank you Wilson and your family for taking such great care of our place. We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Lena and James were extremely welcoming and helpful, often going above and beyond with tips and information for us which was particularly helpful as we just emigrated from Europe. If you are looking for a comfortable, clean, well equipped 1 bedroom within walking distance to the Sky Train for easy access to central Vancouver ( takes 30 mins) then this spot is great, you can walk to 3 groceries, a post office, hair dresser, a nice bar/ restaurant and pharmacies as well as a few lovely parks, making it a great base if you don't want to use a car. We also walked to the Canada Games pool and there is a Rec- Centre very close by as well. Sapperton is full of interesting heritage houses with lovely gardens. I would say the high lights of this rental are; the hosts welcoming and helpful nature, a good mattress and walkability. Also, if you happen to be bringing your tribe along, this flat is very child friendly!
Lena and her family were great guests. Even with small children they were very clean and quiet - more than some adult groups we've hosted! Lena was very friendly and interested in the city. They left the house very clean and even took the time to strip the beds. Every host should rent to this family with confidence.
