Tina did a great job of communicating in email up front. And Graham checked in with us once we had had a little time to settle. The place was great for our family. The separate rooms gave us all some privacy. The kitchen was sufficiently equipped for our dinner preparations and enjoyment. The separate entrance meant we didn't have to worry about disturbing their family when we came back late from an evening of contra dancing. The artwork in the space was all Graham's. It was all good, fun work. We all enjoyed spending time exploring it. It was like visiting a gallery. This place will definitely be on our stay again list if it is available when we visit Vancouver. Thanks aging for sharing your space.
I had a lovely stay while I was visiting UBC for work in Vancouver for three weeks. Would have no hesitation in coming back. The apartment is in a fabulous location and spacious enough not to feel closed in. Its bright and colorful and relatively well equipped. Could have had a better heater as I stayed at the end of winter and was a little cold. Although as soon as I said something Tina provided another heater and extra blankets. Tina is great- happy to help if i needed anything but respectful of privacy. Overall a terrific place to stay.
This is my second experience at Tina's place. I was very comfortable the first time and hence chose it again. Tina and Graham are very friendly and helpful hosts. The apartment is ideal for families and is very private. Would recommend it any day.
Tina's place is clean and home like. We enjoyed staying there and it was a good fit for our purposes in Vancouver.
This is a lovely apartment in a great location with a warm and responsive host. I have stayed here twice now and have booked a third time! It has a very nice feel, everything you need, a great shower (!), wifi, and Tina is very accessible and easy to work with. A great find.
Tina was a thoughtful,helpful and caring host,from the moment we had contact via (website hidden) our arrival she brought us milk for coffee and provided extra comforters,in case we needed them.She also provided us with useful information about close-by restaurants and stores.
We loved the close proximity to buses and the ease with which we were able to get around!
The view of the bay and the snow capped mountains(which we were fortunate to see) were spectacular!
The studio feels warm,cozy and welcoming with the colorful art throughout and the beds were very comfortable as well!
Having a kitchen enabled us to enjoy breakfasts,snacks and even a couple of dinners,without having to go out for meals all the time.
At times we might have enjoyed a bit more quiet(particularly in the morning),however Tina states very honestly in her introduction that this might not be a space for someone who looks for a completely quiet place.
I recommend this place and would stay there again!
Beautiful and beautifully located walkout suite. The décor is comfortable and the space very cozy.
Plenty of places nearby and a few minutes into downtown Vancouver or UBC. We would come back!
Very spacious and nicely decorated apartment. Tina was very helpful and prompt at answering our questions. The apartment was very cozy but some basic things (sharp knife, salad bowl, tea pot etc) were missing to make the kitchen truly functional.
Tina's garden apartment fitted my family's needs perfectly. My 6 and 8 year old sons were happy to have some yard space, as well as a playground and beach within walking distance [not to mention chill out to cable TV or pop in a DVD in the evenings.] The suite was clean and comfortable, and the hosts were absolutely lovely -- extremely helpful and accommodating, and very discreet when we wanted privacy. We definitely plan to stay here when we visit Vancouver again.
Thank you Tina for hosting us in your lovely suite. Conveniently located, nice and quiet, comfy beds and easy parking. Thank you also for being so welcoming and helpful during our stay.
Thanks for staying with us, you were a great guest ! Clean, tidy and respectful of our apartment.
You are welcome back anytime !
