Hello! I'm from Canada! I love animals and live a relatively healthy lifestyle. I love traveling and hosting people in my apartment. It's amazing when the two can coincide!
I look forward to meeting you!
Review of the apartment of Sharai:
(Sorry that it took so long, but we wanted to put it in good English and that takes time!)
Kitsilano is a wonderful place to stay and we enjoyed the surroundings very much.There were enough stores and restaurants (bistros), the beach was near and also the way to downtown was not too far. It was easy to find our way by bicycle and by bus. And the surroundigs were very green which was very comfortable for the soul.
The area was also very quiet, even the garage (just under the apartment) also did not disturb us.
We cooked everyday and the conditions were almost perfect. Sharai offered us the use all her food stuff in the refrigerator and elsewhere in the kitchen, so there was no necessity to buy spices and other things such as washing up liquid and so on.
We could do our laundry inside the house and this was also really good, because we could reduce the amount of luggage needed for our stay which made it very comfortable.
A big help was the computer, we could use it any time we liked – also the phone for local calls as our friend lives near Vancouver (Ladner).
There are some points Sharai could maybe improve or think over.
When we looked at the photos Sharai provided through airbnb the rooms looked larger than they were in reality. The bedroom looked even lighter. That was a bit disappointing for us.
Everyday when we entered the house into the shared there was an awful smell. And this was not a nice welcoming feeling for a guest, we thought. Even the apartment could be cleaner than it was when we arrived. Having said that the terasse seemed neglected so we did not use it and the grill was very dirty.
Anyway Sharai is a very interesting and engaging host. We stayed in contact with her all the time and we could ask any questions and she would always answer them for us.
Thank you Sharai and all the best for your future plans!

Location location location! Perfect area just 2 blocks to kits beach, walk over burrard bridge to downtown or around the corner to Granville island. Host is and was very accomodating for myself and partner, mother and baby! Beds were very comfortable too. The only downside was that the apartment suite is situated above the apartments underground carpark doors which although not 24/7 could wake you in the morning or keep you up at night if you were a light sleeper. It didn't worry us however and it wasn't that frequent anyway. The access to the internet from the computer was a huge plus for us as we don't have an ipad or internet access from our phones so it really was a life saver. We would definately book again. Thanks alot Sharai xx
Sharai was a lovely person and her tat ink matched the color on my walls- it was a great fit :-) I felt entirely comfortable knowing she would be a respectful guest. And she was. Communication was excellent and considerate.
You are welcome anytime Sharai .
