Barbara & Dale were great hosts! Beautiful Place with stunning view of the entire City. Barbara and Dale were very helpful in suggesting places to visit and provided great smoothies and snacks for breakfast! Highly Recommended! Thanks again for hosting us and for the great hospitality. Go Canucks! We will definitely come back and stay with you guys when we visit Vancouver again!
Fabulous stay. Total attention to detail in service, comfort and design of this wonderful place to stay. Barb and Dale are open, generous hosts that will leave you wanting for nothing. Anything you require is just a request away. A big Aussie thumbs up for allowing us to stay here.
Oh did we mention their wonderful breakfast too, with fresh smoothies, scones and coffee, served to us as we enjoyed their picturesque setting atop a very modern high rise. We fully enjoyed their "Stunning Central Vancouver View". Given the opportunity, we'd be back in a heartbeat.
"Es gibt nur eine Regel: Fühlt euch wie zuhause!". Danke, Barb & Dale. Von Anfang an haben wir uns in Vancouver sehr wohl gefühlt, was nicht nur an der wunderschönen Wohnung, sondern insbesondere an unseren beiden großartigen und warmherzigen Gastgebern liegt. Wir fühlten uns zu keiner Zeit wie normale Gäste, vielmehr wie Familie, und können uns nicht vorstellen, dass man in Vancouver eine tollere Unterkunft finden kann. Für uns ist es die bisher beste airbnb-Erfahrung überhaupt. Wir hatten so viel Spaß und hoffen, dass wir uns wiedersehen. Sei es in Vancouver oder vielleicht auch in Hamburg? Liebe Grüße senden Alex & Kat
What can I say, after a week with Barb and Dale, I think of them as family! They are not just amazing hosts but just wonderful people with big hearts and a lovely home to share. I arrived as a guest but certainly left feeling like I was one of their own. For a first timer in Vancouver (or a second or third or fourth) I could not recommend a better family to stay with (though that may reduce my chances of visiting them again).
From the moment I arrived (and even with her messages), both Barb and Dale made me feel immensely welcome. They were kind enough to let me use the house as my base for a week, including suggesting I work from their home as opposed to a cafe. They were very helpful in guiding me to get through the week in terms of finding where I had to be and when (since I was visiting town for getting some paperwork managed). Both Barb and Dale have wonderful life stories and love sharing them with you in the most endearing and warm way. I never once felt like I was a visitor. Barb is also an amazing baker and made scones and muffins that are in themselves worth the visit.
In terms of the place itself, the room is comfortable and has a lot of storage space for your clothes. You get to have your own bathroom and while Barb and Dale do live there, there is not one moment when you feel like you're lacking privacy. In fact, you feel like you're at home with your family on a vacation. Such is the ease with which they make you feel comfortable. The place is impeccably clean and Barb and Dale go through a lot of effort to maintain it. The apartment is also very centrally located and for the five days I was there, I did not have to use a cab or taxi once. In fact, I mostly could walk down to everywhere in the Central Vancouver area.
Overall, if you're looking for a week's stay to explore Vancouver and live with a family who'll make you have a wonderful time and give you the best tips on what to do where and when, I cannot recommend this place more.
Barb/Dale - Thank you very much!!
We feel we have made a new friend and were sorry to see him go.
Barbara was a great host. She and Dale were very welcoming, and were able to direct us around town. The apartment is beautiful it has an absolutely stunning view.
Barb and Dale's home is incredibly clean and comfortable. The view from their home to the city is amazing which is even better than the picture they posted. Barb prepared delicious and healthy desserts for us every morning and we had full access to the kitchen and living room. I can't image a better place to stay in Vancouver. I would definitely recommend my friends who will visit the city to stay in Barb's home. They are just the best hosts you can image.
Barbara and Dale are fantastic people and delightful hosts. The apartment is beautiful, and the room is very comfortable. Great and convenient location. Barbara is pretty good at cooking. The breakfast is very healthy and organic. Homemade muffin is delicious, I love it! They also provide tips and suggestions for places to go. If I back to Vancouver, I will meet them again.
Absolutely wonderful! Barbara and Dale were a real joy. They welcomed us to their clean apartment armed with a smile and infectious enthusiastic attitude. My girlfriend and I would recommend to anyone looking for a great location in Vancouver, friendly and knowledgeable hosts and a comfy, squeaky clean bed.
Det var lett å finne utleiestedet. Verten var imøtekommende og hyggelig. Leiligheten hadde svært god standard (bedre enn forventet utifra bildene) og utsikten var blant de beste i hele Vancouver, med et 180 graders panoramavindu i 19. etasje vendt ut mot sentrum av byen.
Til frokost fikk vi servert deilig smoothie av vertskapet. Den var god altså. Det var fokus på sunt kosthold i huset, noe som ikke er en selvfølge når man reiser rundt i Nord-Amerika. Kjøkkenet var bra for matlaging, badebassenget i kjelleren var fint og gymmen var ikke så verst. Men boblebadet var litt i varmeste laget.
What a brilliant find! Barb and Dale were the perfect hosts with a beautiful home in a fantastic location, we couldn't have asked for more. The apartment is ideally situated for access to all transport links and close enough to walk to restaurants, shops, the famous Stanley Park and beaches. Our hosts shared their wealth of local knowledge and maps which enabled us to fit in a lot in the one day we had to explore the beautiful city of Vancouver. Their apartment has spectacular views and all the amenities of a 5* hotel, but with all the home comforts. Our bed and bedding were so comfortable we were reluctant to leave them in the morning, but a homemade breakfast including freshly made smoothies a choice of fresh breads and cereals made it a little easier! Having our own bathroom complete with toiletries and all the extra touches made this a truly exceptional stay. Added to that the great company I cannot thank Barb and Dale or recommend them highly enough. Ooh and not forgetting a fab swimming pool, hot tub and gym at your disposal, this is THE place to stay in Vancouver!
We have been friends for 30 years. Barbara will make sure that eveything is perfect during your stay. We have stayed at Barbaras place and it is very nice, and the view is fabulous !! Barbaras place is spotless. You will not be disappointed !!
My husband and I have stayed at Barbara's twice and both times we have had amazing experiences. Her place is immaculate, the room with private bath is perfect and the bed is amazing (love those bamboo sheets)!! And to top it all off - the fresh brewed coffee in the morning was out of this world. We found Barb & Dale so personable and very knowledgeable about the amenities and areas to explore in the City. I would not hesitate to recommend Barbara to anyone I know that will be visiting the Vancouver area.
I highly recommend Barb and Dale's place. I have stayed with them on a number of occasions. They are extremely welcoming, making sure I'm comfortable, yet giving me space.
Their apt is very stylish and comfy, and the bed is heavenly. The spare bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom, which gives you privacy.
The apt is within walking distance of everything, good restaurants, pub/lounge, skytrain, and the false creek waterfront. On my last visit I walked across the street to the Aqua bus which took me to Granville isl and English Bay beach. It's such a beautiful spot! I look forward to the next visit.
