Wonderfully furnished, clean, well-stocked and in a great neighbourhood! Most amazing bed ever. Had a great time there.
Overall a very comfortable house. It is close to public transit and has almost everything you need, in a very modern setting; however the yard could use some sprucing up. Linda was very responsive and easy to deal with.
Very clean! We enjoyed our experience at this charming 1 bedroom suite. Included everything we needed. Would choose to stay here again.
The property is managed by the owner's friend Linda and she was very friendly and helpful. The location of the house is on a busy street (41st Avenue) so there is a bit of noise but it is a very cozy place that is well appointed and conveniently located (about 15 minute walk to Oakridge mall). Would highly recommend this place.
It was perfect for us to stay here. We loved the pictures and they were very accurate to our experience. This place is perfect for a couple. A very comfortable bed, nice towels, a very nice bathroom. The shower with two shower heads was very nice. We didn't use the kitchen for more than microwaving, but it's very well done and could handle any meal. Beware that the unit does not have AC, but does come with a couple very good fans, that we used for sleeping at night. We had a rental car, which was perfect as we were able to park in the back for free whenever we needed. It was just a 20 minutes drive to get all the way through downtown and to Stanley Park. If you don't have a car, it is about a 16 walk to the Canada Line SkyTrain Station. Thanks Ran and Linda for letting us stay at your place!
Great stay! Communication was great, no problems. Bed comfortable, had everything necessary for a good stay. Will definitely stay there again.
We had nice stay! Clean and well stocked. Breakfast in morning on deck looking at the mountains. Walked to the Skytrain station and saw the city.Comfortable place to stay.
This is a lovely place to stay. It really deserves 5 stars. The bathroom is great, the bedroom is spacious, kitchen is fancy and it's spacious. However... it was a trek to get into downtown and a cab is $20 each way... we ended up renting a car just because it was cheaper then cabbing it. We only found out about the semi-nearby skytrain after we had rented the car. If you want a really nice place, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, then this is your place. Linda is great as well!!
The house was clean, well-stocked, and in a convenient location. There were extra sets of bedsheets and towels available, not that we needed them, but nice to know they were available.
The house is about half an hour to downtown Vancouver. We often opted to walk 15 minutes to the nearest SkyTrain station and that got us anywhere we needed to go.
Linda was readily available via email and phone, and was very accommodating when we requested to extend our stay by 2 days. She was also helpful in trying to help us find a mechanic to fix our car during our stay in Vancouver....she was very sincere and helpful.
The only thing I had wished I knew beforehand is that there are people who live in the basement suite of the house. Some nights they were a bit loud when we were trying to go to sleep (around midnight). This wouldn't be a deterrent from staying here again, as it wasn't too bad. It's just something to be aware of.
Overall it was a great house with nice features and a good host.
Beautiful little place inside and out. Very clean and well-kept.
I didn't have the best experience since the password for Internet access didn't work (I tried on several devices), nor did the TV (it didn't get any signals and there were no instructions).
It was also lacking basic things like a garbage can in the kitchen and more than one towel for the bathroom, which was strange and frustrating.
Also, the kitchen isn't very well-stocked, so if you plan to do a lot of cooking, check ahead to make sure it has what you need.
