Great house ... Great location ... Wins GOLD!

  • 5 of 5

Our 50+ women's hockey team rented this amazing house for 6 nights while participating in the American Masters Games. It housed 11 of us (and our gear) comfortably with room to spare. It not only met but exceeded our expectations. Clean and well stocked with all the essentials. Beautiful yard with a lawn for bocce and a basketball court for some ball hockey, lots of on and off street parking, and a huge deck for post game barbecues. This house felt like home. It wins GOLD and so did we !!

Wonderful home for large families or groups!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a memorable family vacation in Vancouver, based at Michael and Cynthia's home in the Kerrisdale neighborhood of Vancouver. The home is large -- our family group consisted of ten adults and five children under age 18, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The home is beautifully decorated and located in a lovely neighborhood. We especially loved the recently added wrap-around deck! The home is close (walking distance) to many diverse and excellent restaurants and is conveniently located for seeing Vancouver's many attractions. Our activities included the Catfe (Cat Cafe) in downtown Vancouver, a whale watching cruise from Victoria, BC, a visit to the neighborhood's beautiful botanical gardens (with its Victorian hedge maze), meals at several superb Vancouver restaurants, and a spectacular trip via gondola and chair lift to the peak of Grouse Mountain. Mike and Cynthia are gracious and helpful hosts. They sent extensive information about their home and area attractions well in advance of our visit. Mike was extremely helpful in a number of "above and beyond" ways, including letting us occupy the home several hours early and being very understanding about a misplaced house key (our fault!) which was located at the last minute. Michael and Cynthia's home has the strongest and most enthusiastic endorsement from our entire family!!

The perfect family reunion place

  • 5 of 5

We had a dozen people for a family reunion, ages early twenties to the mid eighties. The location in Vancouver is superb, with lots of interests for everyone. Vancouver is an excellent tourist city.

The home is very comfortable, not especially glitzy or posh, but warm and comfy. We were there in late July when the weather is perfect, so we really enjoyed the spacious wrap-around deck. We spent most of our time there.

The owners are really nice. They gave us great suggestions for tourist spots, where to eat and how to navigate the city.

We would love to go back.

Beautiful, charming family home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with a bunch of family for a week-- big group including children of different ages. The house could not have been more comfortable, the set up was fantastic for us all. Many bedrooms, tons of sleeping options. All the beds made and tons of towels left for us. The whole place felt SUPER clear. Michael, one of the owners, was there to greet us and show us around. They were super thoughtful, left us with coffee for our first morning. Told us about all the local stores and sent me a long email with lots of restaurant options for kids. The deck and backyard are huge and very spacious--couldn't have asked for a better space for us all. TVs with lots of great netflix movies around the house, comfy couches, and all super clean and warm. We hope to be back again one day!

Comfortable stay for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 7 friends who took the train to beautiful Vancouver for the Rugby 7's tournament and wanted a large comfortable place to stay. We like to cook, so a well stocked kitchen was desired. We did not have a car, so access to public transit was a must. This place fit the bill in every respect.

The house is quite large - 5 bedrooms with an office that also has a bed - but well designed with multiple areas our group could socialize or have privacy as desired. The kitchen was very well stocked and intuitively organized. Multiple grocers, a liquor outlet, restaurants and shopping is only 5 or 6 blocks away. The nearest bus stop is only two blocks.

We did encounter a problem with the house during our stay, but it was quickly and ably handled by the owner, Mike. What could have put a damper on the weekend ended up being no problem, and we look forward to staying here again for next year's tournament.
