Great host, great house in a great neighbourhood!
Thanks to Karen and EastVan!
Karen was there to welcome me and showed me around her beautiful home. Parker House is just a few blocks from the infamous Commercial Drive area with all it's trendy restaurants and shops and convenient bus routes. The home is a Community House, there are shared dinners where everyone is included and you can make yourself at home with few restrictions.
This was my first experience with airbnb and it was just wonderful. Comfortable bed, a very nice homey feeling and access to anything I might need. Karen was very welcoming and had good advice about where to eat and have great coffee near by. Its close to commercial drive which is great.
Highly recommend it!
I booked this for my visiting family, they had a comfortable stay - the accommodation was clean and tidy, well located to get downtown (and other places), Karen was a great hostess.
Karen is a great host. Her home is wonderful, a place of peace and for rest. Sitting on the porch together with her talking, eating, sharing a glass of wine made me feel not to be a guest but a friend. She knows a lot about the neighborhood (which is just amazing) and shares her knowledge. She opens doors to meet people, to blend into the vital life "on the Drive". I could use the kitchen, cook some diners for friends and help her in the garden. I do recommend her to everybody who is interested in getting into contact with people and who likes to life in a house with history and a woman with spirit, faith and trust. I´ll miss her, her cat and her place and hope to come again. To stay with her was the best which could have happened at the beginning of my traveling. Thank you so much, Karen, for the wonderful time with you.
Parker House was simply home away from home --in fact, I caught myself several times saying "after X, let's go home" when referring to this lovely B&B. The rooms were comfy and clean, and the house (with lots of history) is in great condition.
Karen was a warm, friendly, humane and interesting host, very helpful giving us tips and directions. Our Vancouver visit would've been very different if we had stayed somewhere else. We hope to stay with her in our future visits to this city.
Beautiful, very well maintained space, perfect for a couple.
Directly on a bus route that goes through kitsilano into downtown.
Walking distance both to S Granville and Kits.
Would not hesitate to stay there again
A lovely spot in a great neighborhood! The room and house were comfy and the coffee was strong and delicious. Karen was very helpful with directions and sightseeing advice. I would definitely recommend Karen's place to friends who want to visit Vancouver.
A very thoughtful and nice host who left a full fridge as well as everything else I needed. I felt welcome and comfortable right away. I would recommend a stay with Karen any time
The host is extremely generous and welcoming! Very warm and accommodating. My experience there was (email hidden)ally enjoyed the food basket left for me- I felt like a a VIP guest and felt very much at home.
The house itself was very comfortable and ideally (email hidden)ank you Karen!
Karen was a very good guest!! We are glad to have guests like Karen! Hoping she come back again!!
Karen is a most delightful guest. She communicated well, respected the accommodations, and left the place immaculate. You couldn't ask for a better or more thoughtful guest. She is welcome back anytime, which I hope will be soon.
Thanks Siena! We hope to be back too! All the best...
Karen is a gracious guest, as well as a host for Airbnb ! It is always nice to have an opportunity to host another host- as it a great way to exchange ideas on what others offer. I really appreciated her coming to visit and bouncing a few thoughts around. It's nice to know a neighboring Vancouverite now that has a sweet spot on line! Karen is a great communicator, easy to be around and a treat to host. Thanks for coming and please come again! Alison
thanks Alison - yes! we will come again!!
Karen was a wonderful guest. She is friendly, open, and a good conversationalist. I would welcome Karen back again and again. It was a great experience hosting her and her friend.
Loved meeting Karen & Donna, Karen proved to be a great scource of information and inspiration regarding airbnb hosting, I really appreciated her input. I hope we have the opportunity to visit with Karen at her home in Vancouver.
Karen runs a neighbouring BnB and used the Villa as an additional bed for a larger group staying at her home. She was pleasant to deal with and a consummate hostess. I hope to collaborate further with Karen.
Wonderful kind easy-going person. Having Karen as a guest is a pleasure.

Get ready for a real treat! Karen is a sweet and charming hostess that always has time for a kind and encouraging word. Committed to giving her guests a truly warm and personal experience, this is radical hospitality at its best!
