Jane was lovely and accommodating (she even exchanged money for us in a pinch). My son loved having the ships nearby.
A great place to stay. The fireplace was very cozy with a spectacular view of the water. There were plenty of towels and blankets, with a free to use washer and dryer, which was an added and unexpected bonus. The garden and bbq are great, if weather permits. The house is a bit far out from downtown (about a $15 cab ride), but is very close to East Van, with great shops and restaurants. There is also a nice walking/running trail directly across the street. Jane was great with recommendations on where to eat and what to see, and everything was written up in the house handbook for reference. She was also very easy to get in touch with and helpful. My friend lost her phone while we were there and Jane was a key player in helping us locate it.
Overall, a great city retreat!
We just stayed 5 nights at Jane's beautiful suite. From the very first contact all was a positive experience. Jane is very warm & welcoming and happy to help in any way possible. The space was comfortable, well stocked with essentials & we felt very much at home. We are a couple with a young toddler with whom eating out poses a challenge so I particularly liked having big kitchen with everything we needed to cook & extras like spices and condiments available to use if needed. The location was perfect, close to family we were visiting and many local attractions. As others have noted in their reviews, the view of the port and harbor from the front windows is magical at night & fascinating in the day. The master bed is so comfortable & the bathroom is stocked with a generous supply of large, plush towels. Having access to laundry was very helpful. We will book here again in the future.
Thanks Shawna, I really enjoyed having you!
The place was exactly as described and very charming and cozy. The location cant be beat and Jane was a great host! The neighborhood is very safe, and I was able to walk to the coliseum without any worry for my show. There is lots of room and it was nice coming back to the house and relaxing to a fire on the couch while watching seagulls and the bay. Would definitely recommend and wont hesitate to book here again the next time were in VC, BC
Jane was a wonderful host. She ensured that her apartment was completely stocked and ready for use for us. Her communication was prompt and efficient and her care and concern was evident. Would love to book this place again for visitors!
Thanks so much Nicole and you are always welcome!
This was my first AirBnB experience and it was great! It worked out well for us as the house was conveniently located down the road from family but it is also within walking distance to buslines, shops, restaurants, running and biking trails. We enjoyed watching ships come in with our daughter. The house was very comfortable and suited our needs perfectly! Jane was very friendly and accomodating. We would stay here again for sure!
Nice space great view, would stay here again
Me and my husband had a wonderful stay at Jane's ocean view house. Jane is an amazing person, very kind and hospitable, very interesting to talk with and so fun!!!
I was so impressed with a design of the house.We truly felt like home.
House is very close to Downtown and so comfortable. We were happy to find everything we needed at the kitchen. Jane has travel guides kindly offered for guests and complementary tea and coffee, which is very nice.
We will definately be back and highly recommend Jane as a host.
Thanx for everything!
My parents, sister and myself had an amazing stay at Jane's house for the 2015 NYE holidays. We could not have asked for a cozier place to stay and Jane is a great host, very attentive and helpful with tips about where to go and what to do in Vancouver. I remember asking Jane prior to the trip if we needed to bring anything like towels or bed sheets and she said "don't need to bring anything and imagine this is like a hotel"... nope, it's much more than a hotel. The house has everything imaginable and it felt like a home away from home from the very 1st minute!
We loved our stay, we definitely recommend it and we will hopefully be staying at Jane's next time we are in Vancouver!

Thanks so much for the kind words and hope to see you again!
She is so kind and always responses to my question immediately. Whenever I have a question, she helps me a lot during the stays. The house is clean and we can stay there comfortably as if it is our real house. And the location is awesome !:) we can see beautiful view from the living room and neighborhood is so quiet and safe. We can go to downtown easily by using #4 bus and also there are many glossary store and restraints near the house. It is very convenient to go to both downtown and north Vancouver from the house. We could spend a wonderful holiday in this house. I want to go back to Vancouver and want to stay this house. Thanks, Jane !
Kana, I hope to see you again, you are most welcome here. All the best for 2015!
Nice place, great area - super cool watching the ships go by. Clean and spacious and a fluffy bed!
I felt at home in the sumptuous living room, panoramic picture windows Reveal a spectacular view of Grouse and the entire north shore mountains and active harbour. There is also a secret garden where one can listen to the song birds in peace. In addition this home is minutes from downtown by car or bus or bicycle and walking distance to beaches and shopping. You won't be dissapponted!
Jane has a great home with a killer view and perfect location — minutes to downtown and a few blocks to Highway 1, leading to Whistler. She is an avid gardener so I am sure you will enjoy her quiet and private backyard. I have been Jane's friend for several years and I know that her previous airbnb guests have been very satisfied with their stay.
