Perfect stay in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Sid and Alix was wonderful. They were so helpful with restaurant suggestions and with activities to do. Our accommodations were perfect .. Down to the bottle of wine and delicious pastries for breakfast. We were so close to so much that we walked a lot instead of driving. They are wonderful hosts and hostesses and you will thoroughly enjoy them and your stay.

Good location, clean and well furnished, welcoming guests

  • 5 of 5

Very nice attention from the owners with a (good) bottle of wine on arrival and some great treats for the first morning. Very quiet location but still very close to the city. Easy to walk to the beaches, Granville Island, False Creek and downtown Vancouver. Free parking is a bonus in this bicycle loving city.

Five Star!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and the hosting by Sid exceeded even our highest expectation. The apartment is in great shape, well stocked, very clean, the beds are high quality, and the shower is great. But above all, Sid is truly a great host. He offers generous advise, tips, neighborhood and city orientation tours, materials, and even brought us delicious treats from a superb neighborhood bread store. We will return to Vancouver if only for the pleasure of staying in Sid's property again!

A cozy little nook in a great location

  • 4 of 5

What a gem of a neighborhood Kitsilano is! Brand new to us. And this little apartment was a great place to explore it from, right between the beach front and just two easy blocks from shops, etc. A very compact apartment with everything you need.

Perfect trip to drop off daughter at UBC

  • 5 of 5

Just a great place to stay in the greater Vancouver area, away from the hustle and bustle in a quite neighborhood with great access to the water and local eateries and shopping. From the welcome bottle of red wine to Sid's personal pastry delivery this was a perfect spot as we moved our daughter up to Vancouver to begin her studies at UBC just down the road. Lot's of room, quite and well appointed perfect for a nice get away from it all. Was able to walk to dinner and shopping and the morning Starbucks run so it was great to not have to drive so much. Thanks so much Sid and Alex for the warm hospitality and sharing your home with us, The Richardson's
