“Fantastic Location!”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Lisa was an excellent host in a location that was simply perfect for our stay during our weekend retreat to Vancouver from Calgary. Lisa responded promptly to all of my questions and was very helpful with all that we needed. As we did not fly out until later in the evening, Lisa allowed us to keep our luggage in the suite until our departure time. That was super!

The suite was simple and had all the basics that we needed. Nice bright windows and right around the corner from a great street full of restaurants and little shops to explore.

“An ideal location to fall in love with Vancouver”

My partner and I were first time visitors to Vancouver (all the way from New Zealand) and we were really pleased that our "hard work" researching accommodation options paid off so well. Howie & Lisa's place just off Commercial Drive provided the perfect blend of local lifestyle and yet within easy reach of downtown. We started our days with coffees at one of the many cafes along Commercial Drive and usually ended our days the same way, with a meal at one of the many great eating options just a short stroll from home. In between, it was so simple to take advantage of Vancouver's great public transport systems to quickly and cheaply get to wherever we wanted to go. And we went everywhere! Not only was it our first time in Vancouver, but it was also our first time using Airbnb and both choices proved to be outstanding. Howie and Lisa were terrific hosts who were really helpful with information and recommendations both before and during our trip, but otherwise left us to our own devices (except for dropping by some tasting baking which was a wonderful "welcome to Vancouver" moment for us!). If we were heading back to Vancouver we wouldn't hesitate to re-book for another stay, but as that's not likely to happen (for us) in the short term, we'll have to be satisfied with recommending Howie and Lisa's place to anyone we hear of who does happen to be heading that way.

“Best Vacation Experience”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I have found my home away from home! Howie and Lisa's place was so cozy and welcoming, just perfect for 2 people, and they are wonderful hosts. The photos are a perfect representation of the space, and the bed was SO comfortable. The location was ideal for my needs. Whenever I return to Vancouver this will be my first choice.

“Are you ready to go back to the 90's?”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

This was definitely not the highlight of our trip. The room has not been updated since the 90's. The room was very dark. The furniture was all black and pretty beat up and the tables were old school glass topped. The couch and bed were completely worn out. There was way too much furniture for such a tiny space. The pink bathroom was about a 5 x 5 foot space that included a towel closet, toilet and shower stall, but no sink. The shower had a door that opened in (not the usual outward swing) which meant you had to touch your body to the back of the shower stall in order to close the door. The shower fixtures were rusty and leaking, and when someone upstairs used water you were frozen. I specifically asked about a hair dryer and was told yes so imagine my surprise after my shower only to discover otherwise. Talk about a bad hair day. We rented this room for 2 nights, but left a day early. The one and only positive is it is within walking distance to coffee and nightlife.
