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.

Excellent hosts, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to stay at Sid and Alex's suite for several weeks as I was transitioning back to Canada from overseas. The location, steps from Kitsilano Beach Park, was perfect for long walks with my dogs and convenient to all amenities.

The suite is as pictured: very well appointed and supplying everything you could need, including nice comfy beds. Good cable and Internet too -- which was much appreciated when the rain kept us indoors for extended periods

Sid and Alex are excellent and generous hosts -- from suggesting places to eat to leaving wine and pastries for their guests. Their patience with my mutts, who weren't always the quietest, and their attention to making sure I had everything I needed, created a wonderful homey environment for all three of us.

Thank you so much, Sid and Alex, for your kindness and helpfulness during our stay. I will certainly be in touch should I ever get back to Vancouver! And I highly recommend anyone considering this property to jump on it. You won't be sorry!

Home away from home for us for sure!

  • 5 of 5

It was with great relief that my daughter and I landed at Sid and Alix's property as we were there for an unexpected emergency. Sid and Alix went out of their way to help us and were much more than just the hosts of this property. Their concern and support were very much appreciated and helped to ease the situation. The fresh pastries on our 1st morning were to die for. To complicate our visit Vancouver was experiencing an unusual snow storm. But the location is perfect as you can walk everywhere to get anything you would ever need. The beds were extremely comfortable and there was everything you could need in the apartment. If we needed anything all we had to do is call our hosts. Thank you very much Sid and Alix!

Owner's Response: We were so pleased to host Suzanne and her daughter Margaret. they are great people and it was our pleasure. We are so glad that the emergency was resolved and is continually resolving and hope that Suzanne and her daughter will be back for a longer stay; that time with no "unusual snowy" weather. Best to you both.

Comfortable Suite in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time in this lovely suite. Sid and Alix couldn't have been better hosts. They were gracious and helpful. They went above and beyond by surprising us with sweet treats and a nice bottle of wine. They met us at the door and Sid even drove us to a restaurant that first night because it was after dark. The suite was in a quiet neighborhood. We walked to a large grocery store and several good restaurants. We walked to the city bus stops ,too, so we had easy access to the city. We had everything we could have needed and the shower was great! The suite was very clean, and I enjoyed the nice TV for watching some American football!

Thanks so much Sid and Alix! We will send others your way if ever we can.

Very nice apartment, great location, helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean and attractive. Both bedrooms have very comfortable high quality mattresses. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking and eating implements, and includes a dishwasher. There is both outdoor and indoor seating/eating space. The hosts are very nice people, provided good restaurant recommendations when we needed them, and accommodated us by allowing us to store our bikes in their shed. The location is a 7 minute walk from a heated saltwater pool overlooking the water, mountains, and city skyline, and a few blocks from a running/biking trail, multiple parks, and multiple excellent restaurants. Easy street parking. Everything went very smoothly and it was a great trip.

A lovely private home in the best location and with great owners

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just were looking forward to spending the month of August enjoying the cool weather of Vancouver. With extraordinary luck, we not only found great weather but a great place to stay where we could walk any to any place we wanted: close to small parks, the beach and one of the largest outdoor pools in the world. But not only that, Sid and Alix(the owners of the home) made us feel particularly welcome. Sid was spot on with his restaurant recommendations as well as available for any questions or discussions and if you play your cards right, he will deliver to your door step the best almond croissants this side of France. We would highly recommend Sid's 2 bedroom unit.
