I was really disappointed with my first stay using airbnb. I didn't realize this at the time, but the owner does not speak English very well and so there was a lot of miscommunication prior to our stay.
First and most important of all, I asked if there were going to be other people staying at the house while we were there - she answered with a vehement "No - just you and you're family!". When we arrived, there were about 10 other people there. We had to take cold showers because by the time we returned everyone would have showered already. She said pillows and blankets would be provided - I slept using a towel as a pillow and a mattress sheet as a blanket on a plastic covered IKEA mattress with no other covering. Thankfully, everyone else fit on the beds you see in the picture. I don't know how much better that was as the mattresses were hard as rock.
CiCi herself is actually a very sweet woman - if you plan on booking this place, you should definitely speak over the phone regarding your stay and know either Mandarin or Cantonese. Hopefully, other people will have a better time here - bring your own towels, blowdryers, toiletries, because this place is barebones in terms of what is provided. We saved a good amount of money staying here, but that was about it.
Stay cici place in aug. for 1 week, the house is located in richmond, bc. The community is very safe and close to bus service. And very close to the river rock casino.
Um, this is a strange place. It's kinda like staying in the Bluth show home. The house appears immaculate, and everything in it is new. However, it is also empty. The "luxury living room" was roped off. The furniture is eerily untouched, and the kitchen bare.
Our mattress was wooden and hard -- we think it may have been the base of an ensemble, rather than a mattress itself, so we barely slept. There were no towels, and no soap in the bathroom. The shower didn't work and there was no plug in the bath, so we had to sit under the tap and splash water on ourselves. The ceiling fan in the bedroom didn't work either.
CiCi is very sweet, but she speaks almost no English.
