Good apartment and excellent location ! Darren was a great host because we arrived very late in the night and he accepted to do the check-in at 2am.
The only bad point in the parking ! A permit parking would be great or the best thing is to have a bike !
We stayed at Darren's place for 3 nights. The key pickup was smooth and he met us at the door shortly after we arrived. There was a letter inside with some instructions for the apartment and insider breakfast tips.
The apartment is at a great location, just 5 minutes from English Beach and a 25-30 walk to the downtown core (The Lookout/Chinatown). You could easily walk or take the Aquabus to Granville Island or hop on a bus to Yaletown.
The apartment itself is comfortable for 2 couples. The bed in the closed room us a double (keep that in mind if you're used to a king).
The space is neat and tidy but is definitely in need of a deep cleaning/airing out. We communicated with Darren about a couple of points after we checked out and he replied quickly advising us it would be taken care of.
All in all, if you're looking for a place to crash in Vancouver with a couple of friends for a few nights, then it's great!
Couple extras: taxi from the airport is approx. $30. Parking is by permit only, so I recommend not using a car IN Vancouver.
We had a great stay in Vancouver, the apartment is in such a great location - within walking distance to Stanley Park, the beach and many great restaurants. Darren was always really quick to respond to any questions we had and it was easy to arrange our check in and check out. Thanks again for a great stay!
Very easy check in check out etc. Darren made it all easy and efficient. The apartment is nice, well maintained and convenient. Everything was good and probably the best review I can give is that I did not even feel any different from being home.
The best thing about this apartment? LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. Minutes from the beach, right in the heart of downtown. If you're in Vancouver to do a lot of walking around the city, take in the sights at your own pace, watch the sun set over English Bay and sample a bazillion restaurants, bars and local ales (as we were!) then this place is ideal. We walked everywhere from the apartment and the local amenities were fantastic - big supermarket 2 minutes away, lots of local shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs all within a 20 minute walking radius. Darren was a good host - we stayed whilst he was in the middle of getting married/going on his honeymoon so the organisation of key-dropping was a bit messy, but understandably so! Would definitely stay again.
welcome back again!
Darren is an excellent guest. He left the apartment very clean and he respected the rules of the house. We had a perfect communication. Hope to meet him again. I would highly recommend him as a guest to anyone.
Darren was excellent guest, all 4 of them were. It was easy to agree on everything with them, we would love to have them as guests anytime. They left the apartment in good order, we recommend them to all other apartment owners they might contact...
It was very nice contact with Darren and his friend Patrick. Polite, nice, and true traveller. I just hope that he enjoys Zagreb with his friend. Welcome when you want here Darren ;)
Darren and his girlfriend were open and friendly and happily they had no problem with the size of the room. They left the room tidy and clean. Besides that, only if it was for only one night, it has been a real pleasure hosting them.
I surely like to welcome them again and I can recommend them to all next hosts.
Dear Darren, thanks for your coming to my house. It was my pleasure to serve you. All of you are very polite and nice. Wish you have safe and enjoyable trip. Hope to see you (website hidden)
Darren and his lady were very cool, chill and great guests. Would be happy to have them back again in the future!
Darren and his fiance stayed here very briefly at my place in Seatac. They were clean and quiet, and had found my place on their own by walking from the Terminal. Would love to host them again if they come by Seatac area.
