This was our first time using airbnb, and Rui was a most welcoming and gracious host!!! His apartment is so centrally located, you'll be hard-pressed to not explore every nook and cranny, every neighborhood this city has to offer. Transit is close by, as well, but walking everywhere is truly a viable option! Weather permitting, definitely make time to enjoy the rooftop deck!!!
Rui was a friendly host and his place was a welcomed change of pace from the hotel we had been staying at prior to our 2 night stay. 3 different levels (1 being the roof which has an amazing view day or night) made it nice when the 3 of us wanted some personal time. The amenities that were listed were all made available to us including, but not limited to, the washer/dryer which made packing for home so much easier. Thank you Rui for making my 4th AirBnB experience a good one!
Wonderful weekend in Vancouver. The townhouse we exactly as described, and Rui was a great host.
Rui is a great host, who has always been kind and helpful along our journey. The apartment is located at the very center of Vancouver with unique design, exactly as shown online. It has been fantastic living in the place and I will definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Vancouver.
Rui was a fantastic host. He made the check-in process very easy and he's always available if needed. His place is very well located in downtown Vancouver and you can walk anywhere. When I return to Vancouver during the summer, I will definitely stay with Rui.
Rui's place was great. It is in a very convenient location and is a very unique unit. Rui met us at the condo and made the check in and check out very easy. The fact that the bedrooms were on a different level than the living room was great for a group of friends that also wanted some time to themselves. I would definitely recommend his place for anyone looking for a fun, unique space in a convenient location in Downtown Vancouver.
Rui is a great host and tha apt spacious, clean and centrally located!
Rui was a great host with a really unique space. During the summer it would be great sitting out on the 3rd floor patio looking over the mountains. Location is fairly central to downtown, it's a short walk over to the Gastown neighborhood, and another short walk to Yaletown.
My first stay at Rui's place was so nice that, when I had to go to Vancouver again one week later, I booked it again. ;)
I still recommend it strongly (see my first review).
Rui is awesome. Couldn't have expected a better host/person. The place is just as described, perfect location to everything and very quiet and spacious. The rooftop patio was perfect for the sunny day we stayed. Would stay here again in the future. Thanks Rui!
With loads of charm and happy energy, Rui will make sure you have the best possible stay in Vancouver. If you need help with your trip planning or navigating the city he will make things easy for you, or if you need privacy and quiet, he is happy to let you enjoy the space!
A great host is someone whose good nature is back-stopped by an intuitive understanding of people and an abiding desire to help others enjoy themselves -- qualities that my friend Rui demonstrates in abundance. As an Airbnb host myself, I was excited to hear that he was considering opening his amazing rooftop home to guests. I will happily confirm that his natural friendliness, thoughtfulness, and gentle manner are all qualities of a successful Airbnb host.
And if Rui's personal attributes weren't already enough, there is the small matter of his home's incredible views and great location: 10 minutes to the sunset beauty of the False Creek seawall promenade, 10 minutes and a little ferry ride to Granville Island and its celebrated public market, four blocks to trendy Yaletown, walking distance to many of the city's best-loved attractions. In addition, Rui's splendid rooftop terrace with its panoramic view of the Coast Mountains will make you think twice about even leaving the house.
Outside of this new sideline as an innkeeper, Rui is widely admired for his expertise as an outdoorsman, with many high-level recreational skills. If outdoor rec is something you're interested in exploring in beautiful British Columbia, you just couldn't have a better host than Rui.
My central message here is that Rui is a one-of-a-kind guy -- adored by his friends, respected in business, absolutely full of fun -- and there is no question in my mind that his incredible personal warmth will make your Vancouver stay a happy and memorable one.
