We absolutely loved staying with Allie and Lucas, they were friendly and helpful. We also loved their apartment and the facilities that they provided us with. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Fantastic location. Very tidy and clean apartment and lovely hosts.
Allie and Lucas were very friendly and helpful. In addition to being clean and comfortable, their apartment was in a great location! I would recommend staying with them without any hesitation :)
I haven't had a chance to really get to know my hosts as our time tables were not lining up. The room is very comfortable and the bed is very comfy. It is on the main floor and right next tot he main entrance to the building so there is some noise from the people going in and out. I found that the location and privacy I had was sufficient for my needs. Allie was helpful and answered the questions I needed help with (laundry etc). The place is great for a short term stay (up to a week) I like that it is close to Davis and all amenities within walking distance.
Great hosts -- Allie & Lucas are very friendly, helpful, interesting folks.
Pro's: great location (1 block from beach & bike/walk paths, bus stop; 4 blocks from Davie Street dining). Comfortable room. Good price.
Con's: occasional noise from lobby, dog upstairs, dark room. But I did not spend much time there.
Note: C21 bus on Beach St. closest connection to Sky Train etc.
was home to let us in, everything was clean, no problems :) thanks!
I found both Allie and Lucas delightful. Location is fantastic, minutes away on foot from both the Davie district and the beach. I would certainly love to stay with them again, where I to pass through Vancouver in the future. Accommodations were clean, simple and the room large enough to store bikes, which is a great way to explore Vancouver. It's what you'd expect from this type of accommodation--nice people, privacy and a great location.
Because I was in Vancouver for the Vancouver Folk Festival, I was not at Allie's place much: just breakfast, showers and sleeping. And between our two schedules, we did not see much of each other. She met me on a weekday afternoon to give me keys and a little orientation to her place, and we saw each other and talked the morning I left. That said, she was a friendly host.
The building is older (not a modern remodel) and in fair condition, located just 4-5 blocks away from a vibrant commercial district (Davie Street) with TONS of restaurants and lots of pedestrians, day and night, and fairly good access to buses. (Vancouver has a great bus system, but having your own copy of the system map and schedules will make it a lot more relaxing for the uninitiated.)
The apartment was fairly clean and is very sparsely furnished: living room with a table and two chairs; bathroom with clawfoot bath/shower, sink and toilet; simple kitchen with few kitchen gadgets and dishware. High ceilings make it feel more spacious and fairly cool in summer.
My room had a bed, a lamp and a small bedside table, period. (Not that I really needed much more.) The bed was firm and very comfortable; the sheets were clean; and the pillows better than my home pillow. Unfortunately, the room was right at street/sidewalk level, and both were quite busy and noisy late into the evening. I suppose someone who lives in a city might be used to this level of noise, but I don't. Fortunately I had earplugs with me.
That said, Allie told me that they are planning to switch the rented room to the other (inner) bedroom, which should be much more quiet. (On the downside, that room probably has less air circulation, and so might be a bit warmer in the summertime.)
Allie's place is in a perfect location for exploring Vancouver - steps away from the seawall and busy Robson Street. She was a very organized host - organizing check-in / check-out went very smoothly. During our stay, her and her boyfriend were unobtrusive and respectful of our privacy. The guest room is very spacious with lots of room for luggage and moving around. And the bed is really comfy! Overall, our stay was very nice and I would highly recommend Allie's place.
We loved our little room in Allie's flat, and she was a generous, easily-reachable, and kind hostess. The place is absolutely perfect for the casual traveler, and we would recommend it highly. :)
Allie and her husband we super easygoing. Welcome anytime.
Communication with Allie (before and during the stay) was great- comfortable and clear. She and her partners were quiet and considerate and left the space in good shape. As a host, I felt comfortable and had no concerns...we'd love to have them again!
Allie and Lucas where very adventurous and stayed in Hackney Wick longer. They were happy to pass the studio keys to the next gust as I was away. Thanks you!
Allie and Lucas where very lovely couple they stayed at my place for few days and then decided to book some more! They are such nice guests to have!
Very nice couple of travellers, they were respectful and they left my place impecable !
