I've lived in Vancouver for over 21 years. As a true Vancouverite I absolutely LOVE my city. Mountains, ocean, parks, clean air, fresh water...there is no better place than Vancouver to live and visit. I hope that I can share with you my passion of our wonderful city.

My family and friends love to enjoy all that Vancouver has to offer. In the summer you can find us in Stanley Park enjoying the sun at Third Beach. We usually end up at English bay in the evening for dinner and to watch the sunset. In the late summer and fall I will be out fishing. Vancouver is located by one of the most productive salmon rivers in the world. Giant salmon make their way back from the deep ocean to continue their life cycle. In winter I'll be skiing the local mountains. Cypress is my favorite. With an amazing view of Vancouver from the top of the mountain it's a great place to spend the day. The spring in Vancouver is one of my favorite times of year. I tell my friends from eastern Canada that Vancouver is the only place in Canada where you can go skiing in the morning, ride your motorcycle during the day and go for a sailboat ride in the evening.

Vancouver has some great sport teams. Whitecaps Soccer, Canucks Hockey and Lions football are great entertainment. My son is a big sport fan and loves all our teams most of all his favorite team is the Whitecaps. The atmosphere at the home games is amazing. Absolutely electric. It's the closest experience to being at an English Soccer League game in North America.

As a family we've traveled in Europe and Africa to France, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Spain and Morocco. Our kids were only 1 and 3 years old on our first trip. We typically take a big trip every second year. Our friends thought we were crazy to travel with young children (my daughter was only a baby). We've found that people were extra friendly to us when they see we've traveling with kids. I always tried to stay in apartments during our trips and Airbnb has been a great place for us to book amazing accommodations. I've never been disappointed and I know what a difference a great host can be in making a vacation something special. After a long day of travel there is no better feeling of settling in and feeling like you are at home. Years later we still talk about some of these amazing experiences. This is the reason we decided to become Airbnb hosts. For us this isn't just a business. We want to share our city and meet amazing people from all over the world. I love corresponding with our guests and sharing our secret places in Vancouver. We've had the opportunity to meet some wonderful guests through Airbnb.

Our downtown condo is a special place for us. We purchased the condo after looking for almost a year. We fell in love immediately once we walked in. With an amazing view from the high floor and huge 950 square feet and fabulous location we knew we had to buy it. It is located in a great West End neighborhood of Coal Harbour. It's a small quiet residential neighborhood right in the middle of all the action downtown. I've walked outside at 3am and felt completely safe (by the way Vancouver is a extremely safe city all together). Only a block away from Robson Street and minutes from the seawall and Stanley Park, everything is in walking distance. With the amazing ocean and city views you will feel completely relaxed in the condo. We hired an extremely talented interior design firm to create a wonderful luxurious space. They did a tremendous job and we did not spare any cost in the furnishings. Our goal was to have our guests say "wow" as they walk through the door.

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about us. Please know that we are here for you to ensure that you have a incredible stay in our beautiful city. I truly look forward to being an amazing Airbnb host for you and making your holiday in Vancouver truly wonderful.

Warmest regards,
John
