I am an adult education teacher. I own my own heritage house in beautiful Strathcona which is very close to downtown Vancouver.

This was my first Airbnb experience. The cottage was very clean, tidy and cute. Very comfortable living room and beds. Dozens of pillows to rest my weary head on! Strathcona has an interesting vibe. Clearly on the upturn, very bohemian, with characterful properties in various stages of renovation - some really stunning ones. Overall the area is lush, bursting with colourful flowers and peaceful and has a lovely atmosphere with cyclists aplenty. A charming local Portuguese deli is 2 minutes walk away which I visited daily for coffee and cakes. 5-10 minutes walk away is new Asian restaurant The Union on Union Street and Matchstick coffee roasters (cafe) on East Giorgia Street. I went here often. Claudia popped by on our first day to say hello which was great. Although you can walk to the centre via Chinatown, my 72 year old mother found it a bit of a hike after a couple of days but cab fares are only around ten dollars and we had no issue with getting cabs back and forth each day. The cottage was a nice place to come back to after a day of sightseeing.

Me encanto el sitio!! Muy bien ubicado, muy tranquilo y Hollie es una persona encantadora!! Muy recomendable!! :)
Nice place, well-supplied, clean, and great location in pretty neighborhood. Small, but has everything you need, including wifi, workspace, coffee, TV, etc. Also, very nice, large bathtub. Hollie was super nice and we had a great time in the Couve.
Hollie is a very nice host. My boy friend caught a cold and Hollie kindly provided us with Vitamin C, mandarins, ginger and medicine for headache, which helped him to recover. We are contented with the amenities of the place. The only setback is the door that can be see-through from outside, which a curtain or so could increase the privacy of the place.
The nearby neighborhood is quiet, yet it is close to Main & E. Hastings and China Town, where extra care should be paid passing through these relatively dangerous areas. We chose to take buses on Prior Street to other parts of the town, so that we avoided those areas altogether.
Hollie war sehr hilfsbereit und flexibel was meine Ankunft bei ihr betrifft. Auch hat sie mich für Kochgelegenheiten ausgeholfen, wofür ich sehr dankbar war.
Das Studio ist sehr herzlich und lieblich eingerichtet, wunderschönes Badezimmer! Alles ist sehr sauber und sorgfältig vorbereitet. Es sieht genau so aus, wie auf der Beschreibung.
Die Strasse empfand ich als die schönste Strasse des Quartiers - sicher ,mit kleinen, farbigen Häuschen - sehr angenehm um dort einen kleinen Lebensmitteleinkauf zu machen oder schnell einen Kaffee zu trinken.
Wer gerne lauft, erreicht das Zentrum in 30 min…..
Hollie's lovely home was in a great neighborhood. Walkable for those willing to walk to essentially everything or with easy access to public transportation if you don't want to walk. The room was extremely clean (intimidatingly so... perfect white towels, linens etc.) and thoughtfully appointed with coffee, tea and enough equipment (microwave, coffee maker etc.) to survive in the room the entire time if you wanted to but you won't because of what Vancouver has to offer. I drove my personal car an had no problem with parking in the neighborhood which was important to me.
Hollie's communication was prompt and gracious. I'm positive if there was something I needed, she would have happily helped me out. I'd stay at her home again in a heartbeat and in fact WILL! Two thumbs enthusiastically up!
Loved this place! Great location within walking distance of Gastown, Chinatown, and other Vancouver hot spots. Very comfortable and cozy. Hollie was a great host who made us feel welcome and who provided helpful tips on the local beer scene and the neighborhood in general. We'll stay here the next time we visit Vancouver.
Hollie was very friendly and welcoming. The place was clean and comfortable only a 5-10 min walk to the heart of Vancouver.
Plenty of reading material in the room for things to do in and around Vancouver.
Hollie is very good at accommodating you if you arrive late or leaving early.
The host was amazing. Hollie was great! She was informative and made us feel at home. The accommodations are (email hidden) described. The location is perfect. Easy walk to transit and Rogers areana.
it was a pleasure to host hollie. come back anytime.
Hollie and Claudia, were wonderful guests. They are both experienced Airbnb hosts with prime location places to book in Vancouver Canada!
There's no better place in Vancouver for a temporary stay than Strathcona Urban Digs.
Hollie Williams provides a beautiful, comfortable and well appointed suite with a fabulous view of the mountains from the windows and balcony. We enjoyed our stay and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone visiting Vancouver. It was a pleasure to be here.
