We had great time at Castle, very luxurious place so stay. Will stay in future, very helpful host as well
bigggggggg house ~bed is comfortable host is very nice ....
My Room was great! Blazing fast wifi too. I only saw Sandy briefly when I arrived but everything was exactly as stated. The house is beautiful. I would definitely stay there again.
Sandy was a great host - we felt just like home! We will be back anytime we are in the Vancouver area.
This was the only lodging I could find within walking distance of the Thrangu Monastery where I was spending several days with Thrangu Rinpoche receiving teachings. It was wonderful. The room was light and airy. It was very hot and there was no AC but I just opened the door to my HUGE balcony and it cooled off immediately. The bathroom was a dream with three different types of showerheads. The bed was extremely comfortable. My room faced No. 5 Road - a busy thoroughfare during the day but quiet at night so the traffic noise was not an issue. The kitchen privileges are limited, but I just needed my protein shake and tea in the morning. I ate lunch at the monastery and brought a some microwave noodle dinners with me. Sandy was very sweet and her young son, Kevin, was delightful. She has an older daughter, Becky, who was also helpful. A 5-piece Punjabi band was also staying there, and they were very nice and friendly. The place is spotless. However, be aware that it is very far from any restaurants and nightlife. There is ample parking if you have a car (which I didn't).
Sandy was a good host. Whenever we had questions or needed something, she would try her best to answer those questions and provided said thing to the best of her ability. The room we had stayed in was spacious and accommodating. It had also come with a private bathroom.
As for the area, it was pretty remote from the skytrain and downtown Richmond, plus the last bus to get home came at 8. As such, traveling via public transportation was difficult and somewhat costly as Vancouver has a great public transportation system. In many situations, we had to take a taxi back to her place, essentially doubling transportation funds.
If you are trying to stay at a place that has quality over practicality, then this place would suit you.
My bestfriend and I stayed here over the weekend and we absolutely loved it! the accommodations were fantastic, REALLY clean and felt like home! I would defiantly recommend this to all my friends and family. The location is only a 5-8 minute drive from Richmond and is located in a quite and safe neighborhood. Our room had a balcony which was a nice touch! it was nice going out and catching some sun during the day or some fresh air at night. I was a bit worried when I arrived as there was another family renting this place but they were very quite and respectful.
The only issue I had was that I didn't know the password to the wifi. I would suggest putting the wifi password on a piece of paper in the kitchen or the room? I only saw the owner upon arrival and didn't get a chance to ask her for the password as I was in a rush to catch dinner. Although the front door is unlocked 24/7 it did not make me feel unsafe due to the neighborhood we were in. The room also has a lock so just make sure you lock that at night. Other than that, I have no complaints (: it was absolutely wonderful staying here and I would defiantly rent here again the next time I'm in town!
Thank you, I have to do as your suggestions, welcome to you next time：）
I really enjoyed the stay. Large, clean, and very comfortable room. Sufficient air conditioning on hot days. Friendly host and check in/out was seamless. Very convenient to richmond (5min) drive and downtown vancouver (15-20min). I will definitely stay here again next time I visit.
Thank you like our house, welcome to you next time.
The house is big and spacious and 3 bedrooms were available for 10 people on the top floor. Parking is easy with enough space for multiple cars. It has a spacious kitchen and a nice dinning room but non of the appliances except a microwave were part of the deal as the description made it out to be. The front-most main door was kept unlocked which felt a bit unsafe. The powerful fans in the rooms were great during the day but was way too cold during the night. The high tech panels to turn down the fans were there but unresponsive. An instruction booklet would have helped.
Thank you for your opinion to us, we will improve the service, welcome to you next time！
