I enjoy long walks, hiking, rollerblading, electronic gadgets, live music and seafood. I love how Airbnb gives me an opportunity to meet interesting people from around the world.

My husband and I loved staying in this beautiful apartment. It was very clean and comfortable with all modern conveniences above and beyond anything a hotel could provide. The memory foam mattress on the bed in the master bedroom was great for my back. We enjoyed the big projector screen & the free Netflix. There is a huge food court at the mall (five minute walk) so we didn't have to cook but if you do want to cook there is also a couple of grocery stores in the mall as well. The sky train stop is within walking distance which was awesome for getting downtown and to the airport. Ben was the perfect host and kept in touch with us by email throughout our stay to ensure that we had everything we needed. This was our first airbnb experience and we were very impressed. We highly recommend this host and his apartment.
Thanks for hosting, Ben! The condo was very clean, modern & convenient for our stay! We were very pleased with the accommodations and also the special touches such as the complimentary snacks, detergent, toiletries. I would definitely stay there again & will recommend your place to family & friends.
I stayed at Ben's place for a week and a bit, and enjoyed every minute of it. If you are tourists and coming to the city for a visit, you'll find that this condo is super convenient for public transit even though it is out of the downtown congested traffic; the biggest BC mall, Metropolis at Metrotown, is literally 200m from the entrance of the building, and includes 2 supermarkets, cafes, shopping etc...
The condo in itself is a technology jewel: me and my boyfriend supremely enjoyed watching Game of Thrones on the 104" screen ( even Tyrion looked big!!); the bathroom is the fanciest I have ever seen ( and the only one I have seen so far in Canada having a bidet!); the kitchen is ultra modern, and has everything you may need to cook, and nice snacks on the countertop. The master bedroom is spacious, the second bedroom is pretty big as well. The only thing I would suggest to Ben would be to make the bedrooms more personal, maybe adding some decorations; they are beautiful, clean and a wonderful size, but personalizing them would make them even more awesome!
The first day of my stay I was a little worried, since the buzzer was linked to Ben's phone number and I didn't want to bother him every time somebody was coming to see me... But Ben solved even this tiny issue in minutes! I cannot praise enough about how awesome of a guest he is, and how beautiful his condo is. If you are looking for a clean ( clean, clean, clean, did I mention... Clean?), sophisticated, modern place with an awesome location, Ben's condo is the occasion for you. Also, Ben checks through the days to make sure you are having an awesome stay, but he is NEVER invasive! Keep up the good job, and forgive me if this review came a little late.
Thank you so much, I hope to stay at your place again soon!

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Ben's apartment in Burnaby. The apartment is clean, spacious, and well appointed. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, which was helpful as we were traveling with two young children. The induction cooktop was great and boiled water in a snap, and the dishwasher was almost silent.
The location is very convenient, just steps to Metrotown and to the sky train station. Underground parking was great to have, too, as we had a car. We enjoyed the huge projection TV and Netflix.
Ben was a very gracious host and really went out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed. He even left some personal touches for our two children when he learned that we were traveling as a family.
Overall we had a great stay and would highly recommend this apartment.
Perfectly clean and modern, re-modelled Condo. I come in for business and need quiet, easy accommodations that have parking and easy access.
Ben is all of the above. Check-in was seamless, parking perfect, Skytrain and Mall next door.
Perfect, thank you Ben and I'll be back!.
Ben was a kind and a super host. He took us around the whole apartment and explained how to use some of his impressively high tech appliances. He contacted us several times if we needed anything and asked us how we were. His place was very organized and I love how he labeled everything. His apartment was very clean, modern and comfortable. He has some items in his apartment to cater to his guests' possible needs. I was impressed. The place is at an awesome location. It is a very short walk away from a mall and a rapid transit station. We were very happy to have found Ben and his place. Definitely, definitely would love to stay at his home, should we be in town again. Thank you Ben for your hospitality, for my husband and I have greatly appreciated it.
3 words - best Airbnb experience!
Ben and his apartment have left an impression on us!
Awesome impeccable renovated apartment with amazing kitchen, wonderful bathroom and great views of Vancouver.
Super super thoughtful helpful host - quick to respond, check in & when there was a hiccup with the 1st night AND when we needed to shift our dates, he went WELL AND ABOVE what you'd expect a host to do. We were blown away & very impressed.
Don't let the appearance of the building deceive you. The apartment is modern and he's provided just about everything you could think of and need.
Superbly located, close to malls, transport& came with a parking spot which was perfect as we rented a car.
Do yourself a favor and stay (website hidden). It comes with a cinema projector!
Ben was one of the most with-it hosts I've experienced with airbnb. My husband and I booked his condo for my in-laws for our wedding (and their first trip to Vancouver), and it was beyond our expectations. Spotless, full of amenities, as beautiful as the pictures, very well-appointed and organized - my in-laws raved about the place. Ben sent multiple emails before and throughout the stay to ensure everything was perfect, was always thoughtful and accommodating, and spent 20 minutes running us through everything we needed to know about the apartment. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ben as a host, and his apartment for anyone looking for a fantastic place to stay.
Ben was a wonderful host - I really appreciated the fact that he checked in on me and my family/girlfriend a couple of times during our stay, and offered useful advice about getting around town etc. He genuinely cared about us having a good stay. As for the apartment, it was extremely impressive with wonderful hi-tech features and appliances, comfy beds and a good location as far as shopping and public transport are concerned (near Metrotown Skytrain station). Everything that you could need was provided. Would stay there again for sure. Thanks Ben!
The 5 of us were pleasantly surprised with Ben's exceptional apartment. Not only was it awesomely high tech and efficient, it was really clean and tidy. We found everything one would expect to find in a hotel, just better. The host was very thorough with every detail and made sure we were comfortable. A very accommodating and attentive host. We had a fantastic stay and will book Ben's place again if the opportunity arises and will use Airbnb again as we find it to be a very trustworthy booking agency.
Bens friends Maria and terry were excellent guests, cleaning the apartment well after themselves and I would be happy to have them back.. Delighted that you chose me to stay with!
