Entrepreneur, professionally-trained chef, traveler. All-around good guy--I've been told. :)
We actually were put up at another apartment by Olly because there was work being done to this unit. The apartment was immaculate, wonderful views and modern decor. Olly was very accommodating with our later than expected arrival. I would absolutely rent from him again.
Stayed here for 2 nights with some friends and their baby. Olly was easy to get a hold of and flexible so the reservation, check-in and checkout process was great! The listing doesn't mention this, but he has underground parking for $20/day.
The location, as most reviews state, is pretty awesome. Safe, quiet (for downtown), walking distance to both Gaslamp and the West End.
The layout of the unit was very good. 1 bedroom with a double bed, another small room with a twin (this space seemed like it was a small balcony that was converted to an extra room), and then a common area with a couch, dining table and kitchen.
The weather (don't know if it was typical) was a little humid, so the unit was quite warm. The fans helped during the day, but it didn't get really comfortable until the evening.
Olly is a sweetheart, and his condo is just lovely! It's in the most convenient location in terms of proximity to the downtown core. We felt safe, comfortable, and very at home. (in a very, very stylish home) We were three plus a little baby and it was roomy enough for us, to be sure. Thanks, we hope to be back!
My boyfriend and I had a great time at Olly's! His place was the defintion of swanky, clean, bright, spacious, and just absolutely gorgeous. Very central and walking distance from great shops and restaurants.
Olly made us feel at home and welcomed us right when we stepped out of the taxi. He gave us great advice on what to do around town and map of downtown Vancouver.
I would definitely recommend staying at Olly's. You will not be disappointed.
My family had a wonderful time. The apartment was amazing - clean, bright and spacious. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone thinking of visiting Vancouver. The location was perfect, walking distance to everything - grocery stores, restaurants, beach, parks, shopping and bars/pubs.
Olly was great - he met my family on the day of arrival and did a walk-through with them. He responded to all our questions and emails. Even while my family was staying - he was quick to respond and provide information/answers to all of their questions/needs.
Truly a great place, in a wonderful location!
Luxe YVR was a fantastic spot for our short stay in Vancouver. It was in a very secure and convenient location with lots of dining and recreational options nearby. Olly was also a friendly and attentive host.

We stayed at Oly's place for 5 days, everything was very straightforward and easy, just as you'd want for a break. Oly arranged to meet us when we arrived and gave us a bit of info for getting around, which was really useful. The flat is great, has everything you need, the best bit about it was the location......you can walk absolutely everywhere from here and a lovely park just up the road. Would recommend it!

Great small apartment in a terrific part of town - loved it! Coordination upon arrival was super easy, the place itself was impeccable. Comfy furniture and bed, nice big TV - everything I wanted or needed.
Olly was a good guest and welcome back anytime.
Oly was a great guy and very friendly! Too bad he was on his layover and could only stay one day. I am glad he enjoyed his stay and liked the neighbourhood! Can't wait to host him again :)
Oly has been an excellent guest. respectful, and trustworthy. friendly, and fun. Definetely recommended to any Airbnb host.
