My boyfriend and I came to Canada on a year long work visa and spent our first couple of weeks in the country staying with Christa. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome in her home which made our move to a new country much easier than it could otherwise have been. Staying with Christa started our year in Canada to wonderfully and we really appreciate her hospitality, definitely recommend.
Great hosts, very convenient location (just near Commercial Dr, with a lot of restaurants, bars and cafes, and of course the skytrain), and very comfortable home! It´s perfect to discover Vancouver. We would definitly recommand to visit Christa and Nick (and their friendly cat!) :)
After spending 3 nights there, we can recommend Christa and Nick's home to anyone wanting a clean, safe, and comfortable place to stay while in Vancouver. They are an easy going, friendly couple. They are adept at being gracious hosts, while giving you privacy. Sharing their living room, kitchen, and bathroom was relaxed, and having a private bedroom with comfortable bed was great.
Never having walked around Commercial Drive (just a few blocks away), we were pleased with the area. It's worth exploring, and trying to find our favorite coffee shop, pub and eatery was fun.
Only a block the other direction is where we caught the #22 bus downtown, which was very convenient for getting us to our favorite downtown spots.
Thanks Christa and Nick!
I had a great time with Christa and Nick, starting with Christa picking me up from the train station, Nick taking me to a nearby pub with live jazz trio and ending up discussing boolean math (go figure, we were drunk) and of course giving me tips like taking the shuttle to Victoria which was super fun. The apartment is very nice and clean, and close to whatever you need. Public transportation is very convenient in Vancouver, so that was not a problem as there is a bus stop nearby. My only misgiving is that the piano was out of tune :-)
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a good stay with Christa, were very comfortable, and she was very accommodating! This place is perfect for a start or end of a cruise in or out of Vancouver.
My stay at Christa's was lovely. Christa was very welcoming and helpful. I had to arrive late-ish at night but this was no problem at all. They have a relaxed and friendly home, very tidy and clean with a nice bathroom and comfy bed in a good sized room. The area is great with nice cafes and shops and only a short bus ride downtown. Thank you so much for having me stay Christa and Nick! It was a great first-time air bnb experience!! :)
Christa and Nick are really perfect hosts. We enjoyed our stay a lot and were happy to find many nice Cafés on the near commercial Drive when we got up early because of the jetlag. It was our first booking on (website hidden) and the nice room totally fullfilled our expectations. Thank's a lot!
So awesome!! Christa was super welcoming and helpful with her restaurant/bar suggestions. She has a wonderful, clean home and the cutest cat. Would love to stay again!
This apt was in an awesome location! It is just a short bus ride to downtown, Yaletown, Gastown, etc... and only about a 10-minute walk to the light rail, but "The Drive" is a cool neighborhood to explore in its own right, with a mixture of boutiques, bakeries, restaurants, and bars with a bustling park in the middle. Christa and her husband were awesome hosts, too. The room itself was fairly small, but clean and nicely decorated. I had a great stay.
Christa was a lovely guest and is highly recommended to future hosts, and I understand she is a host too. A pleasure to have her around.
Ash and Dayne are extremely nice people and great guests! From the beginning on it was very pleasent to communicate with Christa. She and her friend were friendly, courteous and appreciative and very interested in everything about Berlin. Christa and her co-musician friend were in Berlin for a concert and it was wonderfull watching them. If you get a chance to see Christa perform - visit her show!!!
I would be delighted to have them stay again and take great pleasure in recommending Christa to other Airbnb hosts.
Christa was a delightful guest and we would welcome her back anytime. Quiet, neat, great communication – what more can a host ask? I wish we had had the opportunity to attend her concert, hopefully we'll see Christa next time she passes through this way.
