Settled in Vancouver BC 15 years ago from France, it was originally to stay 3 years... the place is magic!
We are outdoor people who like to hike, ski, swim, canoe. Very respectful of the environment.

We very much enjoyed our stay. Our host Michel was very friendly and welcoming. He accommodated an early arrival to drop our bags and when we returned later that day, there was refreshing lemon water waiting for us. Some of the highlights of our stay were the fantastic shower, the fuse ball table, a great movie selection and a very ideal location close to great restaurants, public transit and the beach. Thank you for your hospitality Michel!!!
Great location, very quiet... the host is the easiest to deal with... EVER! :)
The shower has 5 heads... it is my favorite shower, I miss it already.
Michel is a wonderful host. Nothing too much trouble and very helpful with ideas of what to do, where to go and to eat. Highly recommended. Just a stone's throw from both the waterfront and some of the best restaurants about.
For a top tip, try to book at table (in advance) at the Italian just around the corner on 4th. Absolutely incredible food. We had a 7 course blind menu, so we didn't know what we'd get next and it was all astounding. The name: La Quercia.
Thanks Michel and see you again soon, sir!
Michel's place made our Vancouver trip extra great! Michel made sure the room is warm everyday before we return from outside, it felt very cozy when we came back from snowy outside! He also has amazing collection of movies, we'd pick a movie or two from DVD shelf to watch at night over a glass of wine or Canadian gingerbread whiskey :) The bed is super comfortable too, and that amazing shower, whoa! you have to stay there to experience the shower if you are visiting Vancouver, trust me! The location is perfect, just two or three blocks away from the Jericho Beach Park which is beautiful with panorama view of downtown Vancouver. I'd like to come back stay here again some time!
We stayed at Michel's place for the second time and again in was fantastic in every conceivable way - spacious, well equipped in the perfect location! Thank you Michel!
we enjoyed our stay a lot and felt the apartment was really well organised for us. It is an original open plan flat with airy and light volumes.
We were a couple with a grown up boy and felt the place worked well for our party.
Additionally, there are some nice shops and restaurant around, within walking distance that make the flat easy to set up for a breakfast or meal at home.
our host Michel was very welcoming, and he made our stay very enjoyable. We discovered an interesting and warm person who really deserves to be met.
We felt comfortable, relaxed and very welcome from the second we arrived.
We had a lovely few days at Michel's apartment. It is as described, the whole basement level of the house, with private entrance and outside terrace. The apartment is clean and well presented and has everything you need after a long journey. The location is excellent, a few minutes walk to both the sea front and also Kitsilano's excellent restaurants. Downtown Vancouver is a 5-10min drive or direct bus from the end of the street. Would highly recommend, and would not hesitate in returning.
Very nice apartment in a great location in Kits. Easy walk to the beach and to the shops on 4th Ave.
Very comfortable bed, nice large bathroom and modern kitchen.
Lovely hosts who made sure we had everything we needed.
The only drawback is that the ceiling is quite low so I had to be careful not to knock my head on the beams (though I am over 6 feet tall).
Would be happy to recommend this place to others.
Great welcome. Lovely space, wonderful area. It was wonderful sitting in the sunshine on the deck.
What a great guy! Michael was here in La for a workshop, so he was out mostly of the time, but when he was at home, we had a chance to chat with him, and learned from his experience. He kipped the space nice and clean all the time. If he is requesting to stay at your house, you can be sure you will have no problem and a nice experience. Really recommend. Great to have you here!
Hélène spent just one night in our house but she was a very nice and polite guest. We hope she comes back with her husband and more time to see Porto!
Helene stayed in Home Sweet Porto with her parents. We couldn´t receive them in person because we were travelling too, but we know they were a friendly family and left the flat impecable. Hope to meet you someday in our city and talk more portuguese with you. It was a pleasure to receive them. A guest we do recommend!
One of the BEST GUESTS EVER! I cannot recommend him enough. He follows all of the rules, is kind, clear, honest, full of life, the list goes on and on. We adore Michel! It has been a pleasure hosting him both times he has stayed. 1 million stars!
WE LOVE MICHEL! He is a TON of fun and being a host himself-he just GETS IT! I cannot recommend him highly enough! Clear, honest, kind, clean, etc. He's a joy to have in the house.
Michel was a lovely guest and we really enjoyed having him stay with us. We connected on many things, including theater, the arts and culture. We really enjoyed getting to know him. He is a very easy-going guest, self-sufficient, polite and tidy. He is indeed, our "Vancouver connection" we hope he will join us in New York City again.
These guys are really nice, great fun and just an absolute pleasure to have stay. They are very welcome back anytime for sure.
It was an absolute pleasure having Michel stay during his trip to New York and I really hope to have the opportunity to see him again in the near future. Very friendly, kind, humble and interesting individual. Highly recommended!!
Michel is like family! He was so nice, interesting, positive energy and just a superb guest! Really enjoyed his stay with us!
Helene was a wonderful guest to have in Toronto while she was here for some work and play. True to French form, she is so cultured and her first point of play was to tour The Art Gallery of Ontario. It was really too bad that Lyli and I didn't have more time to spend with Helene as it was a short stay plus we had to go to Montréal and leave Helene by herself. She's quiet, clean, intelligent and extremely friendly. We'd highly recommend The Vancouver Experience to anyone and we'd also gladly welcome her back to stay with us.
