Having stayed at over 20 VRBO properties over the last decade, I have reviewed numerous properties, and have rated some as low as 1 star. I think that there is a tendency towards "grade inflation" overall in the VRBO reviews. However, this property really is a "5".
As noted in the previous reviews, the owners were incredibly easy to work with and helpful. The goodie basket and food in the refrigerator were waiting for us on our arrival and were absolutely wonderful. In addition, knowing that we were traveling with our 4-year old daughter, there was age-appropriate toys and new coloring books/crayons also in the apartment on our arrival: absolutely above and beyond. There is also detailed instructions on both the apartment and on the surrounding area in a very useful binder in the entry way.
The property itself was extremely clean and well kept, recently renovated with all aspects like new, and amazingly spacious. The kitchen was well furnished, and there were plenty of supplies present for preparing simple meals, including a number of spices. The location could not have been better: an easy walk to the Metro, to dining and shopping, and to Mt. Royal. Every aspect worked out perfect for us. We very much enjoyed our "Canada House" (as our daughter called it), and would strongly recommend this property to anyone.
