I live in Vancouver,BC. I am the owner of a design company. I am a mother two kids.
Everything went well during the process. Florence was easy to communicate and thanks to her for letting us stay in her suite even though its only for a night.
I reserved this studio for my parents who were visiting. The studio is located in a nicely quiet street. Florence was a very good host and was there to greet us even though we arrived later than planned. The studio was spotless. There is not much light as this is a basement suite, but we were out from dawn to dusk so it wasn't an issue for them at all. The bed is very comfortable! This is very easy to get to and from with public transportation. I recommend this studio to any couple!
This is a small basement apartment on the UBC campus. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. It has only one window wall and can be a bit dark. Scant utensils so if you intend to cook, bring your own! Host was out of town so we were met by her niece who was very accommodating.
Florence is a well-organized hostess, and her niece Grace was helpful as well. Florence has a nice condo in a desirable and quiet section of the UBC campus. The suite advertised was the basement. There was little to no extraneous noise audible. The suite was not as hygienic as I had hoped for, and that detracted from the experience. Afterward, I communicated with Florence about this problem and she was very gracious and thankful for the feedback so she could take corrective action. If these problems were to be solved, I would rate the experience as a "5".
We had a very good stay at Florence! Thank you, Claudia.
I highly recommend both this accommodation and Florence as a host. Her studio is quiet and clean, with fast wi-fi, tasteful decorations and in a beautiful location a block away from a great coffeehouse and the "main mall" on UBC campus. Any visitor connected with UBC shouldn't look any further (and for other visitors, it's close to bus stops and a 10 minute walk from the main UBC bus loop).
I give 5 stars for my stay at Florence home. Its a very decent size place and the perfect location. Florence's kindness and her genuine caring nature is evident in her courtesy towards her guest. I am very satisfied with my overall stay and I would definitely recommend her place to others.
My stay at Florence's place was pleasant. I was provided a clean suite, on site parking pass, a cell phone for use during my stay, and good internet. The suite was equipped with a mini kitchen, bed, couch, tv, laundry, and washroom facilities. It's a quite neighborhood on UBC Campus and perfect for west vancouver if you are looking for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend Florence as a host to anyone.
My stay here was fantastic. I am post-doctoral researcher at Stanford in California. I was visiting collaborators at UBC-Vancouver for 4 days and needed a small apartment with a kitchen close to campus. I found the apartment to be very nice, well-kept, and comfortable and within a short walk to a great coffee shop/cafe and UBC campus. It is also a short run away from the beaches! Florence and her family were extremely helpful and considerate. There was excellent communication via email and telephone prior to and during my trip to Vancouver. Florence even stored my luggage and computer, and provided me with a parking permit to store my car while I went on a field trip for my research at UBC-Vancouver...after I had checked out! This was a great experience and I provide my highest recommendation for this lovely apartment.
Florence's classic basement suite has all the modern furnishings we needed, and it was extremely convenient, right on the UBC campus. It was a perfect home base for us.
Florence and James were wonderful kind guests, easy to chat with, and very helpful and industrious. While I was occupied in the garden, they came up and volunteered to weed... they kept at it for about an hour until the light started to fail at the end of the day. We would certainly welcome them back at any time, and may visit them when we travel.
florence and her daughter were very respectful and courteous guests. i would definitely recommend them as guests!
Florence and her daughter were great guest and we would have them again anytime. thank you for choosing to stay with us.
Florence was easy to communicate with during the whole process. Everything went well and I welcome her back anytime!
Florence and James were great guests.. respectful, sociable and always willing to chat with the fam (especially to the kids!). We wish they could've stayed longer since they were such genuinely great people to be around (the week really flew by). A+ guests, clean, communicative, and friendly. We would recommend them to any future Airbnb hosts. Their family is welcome back here anytime. :)
