Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was superb. Highly recommended.The beds were very comfortable. There was no noise. It was clean, warm, light and very spacious. The new wooden floors were beautiful. We enjoyed both the covered verandah at the back, and the large window at the front with its lovely view of trees.The neighbourhood was wonderful; a friendly area with very pretty houses. We didn't have a car and found the buses were great. There are several bus routes in close walking distance. Lovely to be near the beach.Derek was a superb host. He graciously obliged me in all my special requests, which made our travelling in Canada much easier. All communications before and during the stay were answered promptly and professionally. Thanks, Derek, for making our stay so good!

Good Times In Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Three couples stayed for the weekend to run in the Vancouver marathon. Everything about the place was nice. Convenient location, friendly hosts, beautiful neighborhood, fair price, and the upstairs flat had a ample space for everyone. One word of caution; Do not park your car near a corner. I got a ticket and almost got towed even though I was clearly out of the corner walkway.

Great Apartment in Kits

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our 3-night stay at this wonderful apartment. The space was large and comfortable for our family of 4. The apartment was well maintained and clean. The kitchen was well-stocked for preparing meals. The bathroom had plenty of soaps, shampoo, and towels. It is in a great part of Kitsilano with lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner, Derek. He was prompt with responding to any questions and providing information about the apartment. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Everything you could need for a fab stay in Kits

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Derek's apartment in Kitsilano for 6 nights and loved it. Great value, equipped with everything you could possibly need and then some. The space was perfect for our family of 3 and very quiet. The beds were super comfortable and we loved the extra touches like fresh soap bars and toothpaste, toys and games. The kitchen is one of the most fully equipped examples I've seen. Wifi worked perfectly and the high top table and chairs give a lovely view of the tree lined street. A really nice place to stay. Kitsilano is a beautiful area with lots of great shops and restaurants. We will be back, and looking forward to it.

Absolute Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a girls getaway. The flat is in a beautiful, peaceful and quiet location. The neighborhood is filled with tree-lined streets and we were just a couple of blocks from a grocery store, lots of restaurants and buses. It was very easy to get to all the of sights and activities of Vancouver. The flat was clean and well-supplied with coffee, shampoo, soaps, and plenty of extra linens, pillows & blankets. We felt completely safe, both in the apartment and in the neighborhood. It was perfect for us! I would definitely stay here again and would like to bring my family. They would love it! Thank you, Derek!
