Jana was fantastic! It was my first airbnb experience and it couldn't have gone better. She took me for a walk to show me the neighborhood (which I absolutely loved) and her favorite coffee shop - JJ Bean.
It's extremely conveniently located and getting downtown or to the airport is just a short train ride away (maybe 10 minutes away).
This is my second time staying with Jana and once again I had a fabulous time staying with her. She is a warm, generous and caring person, an absolute joy to be around. She teaches Nia and even let me attend one of her classes. The guest room was clean, warm and inviting with a very comfortable bed. Whenever I come to stay in Vancouver with Jana, my heart feels at home. Thank you Jana for a lovely visit!
It was lovely staying with Jana again. She is very hospitable, her space is immaculate, and has everything I need, especially a comfy bed. She was very gracious about sharing the kitchen. I made breakfast and used her coffee press every morning instead of heading for Starbucks, so I got to relax more and spend less. Hope to see her again in late spring.
Jana was great. Thank you so much for the One week stay with you. She was very friendly and helpful. The Appartement was clean and very lovely. The bedroom was clean and fully furnished. The lovation is Perfect, very walk- friendly and the Public transportation very close and so you are fast in downtown. I Love the friendly Location and the Shops in the near. I will come back. Thanks for the good experience.
Jana has a lovely condo and she is a gracious host. I hadn't read the description carefully so I was a bit apprehensive when I found out the condo only had one bathroom which we would be sharing. Nevertheless, this was no problem.
The Cambie neighborhood is pleasant enough but too far for me to walk to the sites I planned to visit. Bus and subway transportation was available.
I would recommend staying in a more central location if your time is limited. Otherwise you may find yourself spending far too much time and/or money getting around.
There is no AC so I would be cautious in warm weather.
The complex Jana lives in maintains an urban garden where I enjoyed picking my own tomato. Neat.
I am probably alone in this issue but I missed being able to watch tv. There was a tv in the living room but Jana has a very limited selection of cable tv channels and it was impossible to watch the news.
Jana carried my suitcase up the flights of stairs for me but note that the building has no elevator so you won't be caught by surprise. I really have to start reading descriptions more carefully.
Jana was a wonderful host! My first day she was so welcoming and I felt immediately at home in her clean and beautifully furnished apartment. She showed me around the neighbourhood and provided great advice about fun things to do and see in Vancouver. She is an incredibly kind, generous and thoughtful person. We got along very well and I plan to keep in touch with her. Thank you Jana for hosting a great 2 weeks in Vancouver!
Jana has a lovely apartment in a great location. The big advantage is it's position between 2 stations on the Canada line which runs direct from the airport to the city centre so getting around couldn't be easier. There are also a lot of facilities on the doorstep including restaurants, shops and cinema. On the downside, it is on a busy road so traffic noise might be a problem for light sleepers although it didn't bother me overmuch. I was there while the city was in a heatwave so windows were open. Jana provided several fans which were a big help also. Jana is an ideal host, not intrusive but happy to chat and give advice when needed. I really enjoyed my stay and Vancouver
The abode is located in the right place to see the city of Vancouver. The host, Jana was very kind and made me feel like staying at home. Information on good restaurants in Vancouver was perks for staying Jana's home.
I had a really good time at Jana's incredibly nice place. She is so friendly and fun. Made me feel just like home. The location is great with easy access to transport, downtown and other Vancouver attractions.
I would definitley stay here again!
Jana was a very welcoming hostess to her beautiful home.
Her location is great: She is on the Canada Line from Vancouver airport. Also, she is one bus away from UBC (Bus 33, a few steps south of her). A few steps north of her are a Chinese restaurant with inexpensive breakfasts, a vegetarian-Asian restaurant, a cinema advertising high definition MET opera transmissions, etc. Kitty corner to her is a market with organic produce, kefir, BC cheeses, Terra breads, salad bar, etc.
Jana was a delightful guest. We found many interests in common and had long cozy chats. She's considerate and friendly. I hope she comes back soon as we will be very happy to welcome her again.
Jana Birkett was a really fun and pleasant guest. I totally enjoyed having conversations with her, she is smart and upbeat! When I come to Vancouver I will be seeking out her accommodations for Airbnb. I hope to see you again soon!
Jana is witty, sophisticated, honest and easygoing. I've known her for twenty years and she's a great, fun friend. Her apartment is as cool as she is.
