we had a good experience at Ian's place. The apartment is located in close proximity to restaurants, coffee shops, etc. Ian is a very nice host and we were provided with more than enough supplies ( toilet paper, kitchen towels,..)
This is a great apartment in a fantastic location in downtown Vancouver. Its just as described: well equipped and stylishly decorated. I didn't have a car to park and didn't use the bikes, but its easy to walk to most places I needed and there are plentiful buses and trains. There are good bars nearby, plenty of places to eat to suit all pockets and some great grocery stores, including some very funky but pricey places. I didn't meet Ian directly, but he gave me very clear instructions on finding the place and how it works.
I can strongly recommend Ian's apartment.
Happy to report my first experience with airbnb has been a pleasant one. We stayed here for 12 nights after arriving in Vancouver for the first time. We soon found it was conveniently located and within walking distance to almost everything we needed. The place was clean and had everything required for a comfortable stay. I didn't get to meet Ian but communication was great and questions were promptly answered. I'd recommend this place.
We rented the apartment for our first month in Vancouver, after emigrating from Scotland, and we'd highly recommend it. Wonderful location with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and the seawall just five minutes walk away.
If we're being picky, the only issue we had was that the fridge had a loud humming noise which disturbed my husband's sleep. Also, the apartment had less available storage / cupboard space than we would have liked - however, this wouldn't be a problem for people staying for a shorter time.
Definitely somewhere that we will be recommending to friends and family coming over to visit us in Canada!
The condo is really very nice! It is extremely conveniently located, walking distance from Davie, Yaletown and Sunset beach. Even Stanlay park isn't that far away. The living room is very comfortable. The open kitchen has all the needed features. Parking lot was clearly a big bonus too!
Lastly, Ian's instructions were very clear and overall everything went very smoothly.
If anything, you can still hear quite a lot of the street and city noises, even from the 14th floor... But a perfect landing spot otherwise!
Great apartment right in the middle of Downtown Vancouver. Good instructions on gaining entry and exit and information about where to shop etc. Everything required for a good week's stay in town was made readily available by Ian.
I've never stayed in an apartment above level 3 before so i found staying on the 14th floor absolutely fascinating including watching the window cleaners abseiling down the apartments opposite.
We had an amazing stay at Ian's condo. The location was perfect for us. The furnishings were tasteful and the rooms were clean. The bed was comfortable and we loved the shower. We enjoyed being on the 14th floor and looking out over our part of the city. We could see the mountains and the waterfront. The neighborhood was fairly quiet and felt very safe. We will recommend his place to relatives and friends. We loved Vancouver. There are so many great places to eat and the seawall is incredible. Loved riding the trail lifts at Whistler, shopping on Granville Island, exploring Stanley Park, and walking to the very end of a street while enjoying the neighborhoods along the way.
It was my first time using Airbnb and it was a very positive first experience. My boyfriend and I stayed at Ian's apartment for five nights. The apartment was just as described - clean, comfortable bed, and thank goodness for all the fans in the apartment because it got very hot during the day and at night. The location was great - we practically had our car parked in the garage the whole time because everything was within walking distance. Ian was quick to respond to texts and phone calls. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and would consider staying here again in the future.
Very clear with everything, super location, very informative and definitely would stay again.
Very nice apartment indeed, well organized, has everything you would need. We stayed there for a month and did not have any problems.
I have stayed at all of Ian's properties and can say with absolute authority that you're not going to find a better guy or a better place to stay. Act fast before somebody else does!
