We spent a week there and we had a good time! The space for the guests is huge and clean with privacy if required.
The house is close to transport, supermarket and restaurant.
We recommend Diana and Jaap :)
We had a lovely stay with Diana. The room and the den were cozy. Commercial drive is a great street and busses come and go all the time if you want to explore the city.
Me and my girlfriend stayed at Diana's and Jaap's place for almost to weeks, and we had an awesome time there. The place was tidy and clean, very well equipped with everything you can think of. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet our hosts because they were away at the time, but communication was great and they were really fekxible about pretty much everything.
Even though Diana was not there during our stay, she was great with communication and updates. It was easy to get in with the lock box and the space was perfect. Everything was clean and ready for us. We loved all the unicorns!
We had a great time with Diana & Jaap!
The room we had was very huge and clean.
Diana & Jaap are very friendly and their dog Sunny is very cute!
We can only recommend it!
My stay with Diana and Jaap was most agreeable. Their cosy house is situated in the best part of Vancouver on Commercial Drive. It was great value for money aswell considering I got the use of a whole floor of their house for the price of a dormitory hostel bed. I would highly recommend staying with this accommodating couple to anyone else.
I was in town for a workshop that took place a few blocks from the house. It was extremely convenient and very comfortable. I slept great in the enormous bed, and it was easy to come and go through the basement door.
We really enjoyed our stay at Dianna and Jaaps.
The location on Commercial Drive was great. There is a bus stop right at the end of the road which takes you straight into Downtown, or you can walk about 15mins up Commercial Drive and catch the Skytrain. The journey into town on the bus takes about 20mins and about 10mins on the Skytrain. Both options are super quick, easy and cheap. Commercial Drive itself is a cool place to be - there is always something going on in the bars and there are lots of fab coffee shops and organic food markets. For yummy Mexican food we recommend Havana, and for good ales and beers with a delicious bar menu you should try St Augustines - both are on Commercial Drive. Oh and don't forget to pick up pudding at Fratellies Bakery - YUM!!
The accommodation you get at Dianna and Jaaps place is very private and spacious. It was great having a separate den area to chill out in too - although in the evenings this can be a little dark as there is not much lighting in the room. The place was clean and tidy for us and there were lots of clean towels for us to use. We were also given a shelf in the fridge and cupboard for our food which was really great. The advert states the ceilings are quite low, and although they are lower than average, they did not cause us any problems. The laundry room is right next to the den, and they are more than happy for you to use the washer/dryer - we did on numerous occasions. There is also separate access to the basement if you prefer to use that - we did occasionally when coming in slightly later at night.
We did not see a great deal of Dianna and Jaap during our stay, but whenever we did see them they were always friendly and accommodating. Their little dog Sunny is really cute. He was so laid back and totally not bothered by us being there.
Overall a great base to stay and explore Vancouver. We would recommend this place and would stay again :-)
Our 3-week stay at Diana's was great. They are great hosts and you have lots of privacy in the space. I mentioned to Diana upon arrival that I had my desktop computer and a few minutes later she re-appeared with a desk to bring in for my computer! The location is perfect, just around the corner from Commercial Drive with all its stores, cafes, etc. as well as some parks nearby. Bus stop is also right at the corner. The place is clean, safe and comfy- you also get your own bathroom. Natural light is limited downstairs, but for that you have a beautiful garden/deck where you can enjoy your meals and hang out. Washer/dryer were very conveniently right next to our space. Slightly lower ceiling in a couple of minor spots that you pass through, as well as in the shower, but as long as you are under 6 feet tall, you're fine. It's totally OK inside the actual private bedroom and living room. Would stay here again!

We were happy to host Diana. She was friendly and easy to communicate with. Our housekeeping had no complaints. Hopefully we can have her stay again in the future.
Diana and her husband, Jaab, were great guests and I enjoyed their visit. They were keen on exploring the village and found the caldera truly magnificent, making the most of their time here. One can't ask for more considerate and charming people.
Diana and her friend were both excellent guests. Great communication, very polite and thoughtful, they left the apartment in excellent condition. I recommend them and I'm looking forward to having them again soon :)
Diana was a great guest: friendly, kind and left the cabin clean. We would welcome her back.
