Would certainly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 and found the home very comfortable with easy access to and from our activities. It was nice to be able to have breakfast, lunch and snacks there. The house was equipped with everything we required. We had a couple of issues and Robyn was very prompt on getting back to me.

Suggestion would be a keyless entry as with 10 people we sometimes had some issues with 1 key. Another concern would be the rug around the table, it may be a tripping issue.

All in all, I would certainly recommend this property,.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Beverly. We will be getting a new front door this Spring with keyless entry. As for the rug, it was a new rug and I have noticed it as well! I think it's because it was new and had been curled up for delivery but I may return for a flatter option. Thanks again for treating our house so well during your stay.

Terrific neighborhood, home, and host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home on a corner property in Kitsilano, Vancouver. We had two families, which included 4 adults and 6 children. This was full occupancy, but we were comfortable. All furniture and fixtures were in good order, clean and as described. The yard in the back was fun for the kids (ping pong table, soccer net). We were walking distance from most amenities, including the beach. In particular, our host Robyn was exceptionally helpful at all points. We changed our own plans a few times based on her recommendations. Thank you for letting us stay in your home.

perfect location, gorgeous home, best vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week (June 22-30 2016) at Robyn and Brent's wonderful home in Kitsilano (Vancouver, BC). The location is perfect. We were a short drive or bike from Jerico and Kits beaches, a 10 minute walk from the bustling 4th Avenue strip, and very close to UBC.

My husband, toddler and I along with my parents (4 adults and one child) had plenty of room. We could have fit another small family in the basement suite that we didn't end up using at all.

My parents aren't able to handle many stairs so the two bedrooms on the first floor were fabulous for them (my dad slept on the office pull-out and my mom slept in the bedroom). Not all houses are so accessible. The master bedroom was great with plenty of hanging space for our clothes. The beds were all super comfortable with really nice linens.

The kitchen is fully stocked with beautiful finishings and high end appliances. It was a pleasure to cook there. The back deck is a wonderful spot to have a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.

Our toddler loved the playroom in the basement and had a wonderful time doing puzzles and racing cars. Since it's hard to travel with too many toys, it was a nice surprise to have a home with toys on site.

Robyn was very easy to communicate with and was extremely responsive. She checked in on us to make sure everything was okay upon arrival and near the end of our trip. The house was pristine upon arrival. The hosts had left us fresh flowers and home baked cookies as extra sweet touches.

I highly recommend this rental.
