Great location

  • 4 of 5

This basement apartment has practically everything you'd want for your stay.

2 bedrooms with comfy beds, wardrobe Space & drawers, however NO MIRRORS . Made it difficult for the ladies staying there to all get ready as we had to fight for the only mirror in the bathroom. Couldn't blow dry hair or straighten it until others had finished in bathroom.

Other than that niggle the place has everything you'd need. It was comfortable & easy walking distance to bars, shops & restaurants.

Quiet and Serene

  • 4 of 5

Derek was a wonderful host. The apartment is well located in Kits close to everything and away from traffic noise and congestion.

When our internet went down Derek was very prompt in getting everything up and running again.

Thank you Derek for welcoming us into your home.

Very clean, spacious and comfortable, just as advertised. Strongly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our recent stay in this well-maintained and well-situated garden suite.. I was house-bound due to leg injury, but other family members were able to walk to good grocery store, bagel shop, bakery,and cafes, as well as trendy clothing shops nearby. Kitsilano is a nice neighbourhood, and the various tourist highlights of Vancouver are easily accessible via walking or bus/car. The kitchen had sufficient pots and pans to facilitate cooking onsite. I did not meet the owner in person, but he was most accommodating in email correspondence, and all went smoothly.Recommend highly.

Great stay in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

This property was really clean and neat and well set up. It's also in a great area. There was everything you needed to cook your own meals but if you wanted to eat out there are so many restaurants a road or two in either direction. The supermarket is only a short walk up the road too. Public transport is also easily accessible. Thanks again Derek for a great stay in Vancouver.

Cozy home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Was a pleasure to stay in Derek's basement. There was everything we required to make it our home. Plenty of space for a family of 2 adults, a 17 yr old and a 10 yr old. There was easy street parking, the location was fantastic. The rooms were super clean, beds comfy, well stocked kitchen and bathroom. Derek was immediately available to help us when the bathroom door got stuck in the middle of the night with no complaints. If you are over 6 foot, there are a few doorways you will need to duck under but it is worth it. Would recommend it.

Great place to stay for the price.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place in a beautiful part of Vancouver. Would recommend to anybody going to Vancouver to stay. Only problem we had was we wished there was a larger frying pan.

Thank you!
