                                                    Great central location with lots of space

                                                    Melissa M.

                                                    Excellent location close to downtown (convention centre), Granville Island, and Stanley Park. Large home with ample space and adequately furnished with all the necessities. The owner was very responsive to the very minor issue we had, and kindly provided a high chair for our toddler! We never had any problem finding a parking spot out front. We found it very family friendly but would recommend indoor shoes/slippers for the little ones - the floor was a bit splintery! Would stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

                                                    Great rental for group

                                                    Gary S.

                                                    Rental property great for group of people or family. Kitchen equiped for cooking. Location is central to visit the Vancouver area, of course a vehicle is necessary. Owner responded as needed.

                                                    Perfect for a family

                                                    Alain C.Montreal

                                                    Very nice house in a safe neighbourhood. Ample parking in the front or the back. With 3 bathrooms, this is ideal for a family of 5. No arguments with my daughters about the bathrooms. Super clean with a very comfortable kitchen. The 3 bedrooms are also of nice size so if you want some space to breath, then this is perfect. With a 10 min drive, you reach Granville Island. Not super close for the core downtown but not a problem to get there either if you have a car. The only thing missing is a Nespresso machine! I would go back and recommend this place. One last thing. We arrived early in the morning from Montreal. Because Ken gave us the keycode, we entered the number, left our luggage in the house and drove downtown. That clearly beats a late afternoon checkin.

                                                    Comfort and Quiet

                                                    Keith M.

                                                    Our family really enjoyed our stay in this home. Upon arrival we immediately felt comfortable and at home. The residence is large with plenty of room downstairs for socializing, dining and cooking. The upstairs part of the house was very nice as well. We appreciated the quietness of the home and area. We were only one block away from a main thoroughfare (12th street) which made coming and going very convenient. The owner responded to our questions and requests right away. We would recommend this VRBO home to all who ask.

                                                    Property exceptionally clean, well maintained and equipped

                                                    Extra details/ touches to make stay special

                                                    Ken (owner) was awesome - so welcoming, helpful and accommodating to anything needed

                                                    Pleasure to stay - highly recommended

                                                    Definitely will stay again

                                                    Truly a great home away from home, with everything you need including a responsive host.

                                                    Pam M.

                                                    I booked this house for my family (5 adults and an 11 month old) who were visiting me from Australia and as part of the second leg of a 3 week family vacation. We were very fortunate to stay in a house that was well equipped for our family group, lots of space with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as having an internal laundry and large kitchen and dining area.

                                                    Ken was very accommodating throughout the booking process and every attention to detail was taken with house. The greeting card and welcome gifts were the perfect touch to an amazing stay in a beautiful home.

                                                    I would definitely recommend this to other family groups wishing to have a home base whilst staying in Vancouver.
