"Lissa's house is absolutely beautiful and very well laid out. We rented the place together friends for a reunion and a conference we all attended up at UBC.
Lissa is a super nice host who was very responsive and accommodating. We enjoyed it very much to come 'home' after an exhausting day at the conference. All of us lived and worked in Vancouver before so this was the perfect place to catch up, have a BBQ on the deck or hang out around the kitchen island. As mentioned before, public transport is just around the corner, shopping is close by as are a variety of restaurants and cafés. Our colleagues were all jealous, what more can I say?
Thank you Lissa for being such a great host ad for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
I hope there will be another conference at UBC sometime..."

"As a first time user of VRBO I had my hesitations and Matt the owner was so kind and accomodating with meeting my husband in person to accept our cc payment and answer my many questions promptly online. The location is wonderful. We have previously stayed in Downtown, Kitsilano and off Dunbar but this apartments location off the False Creek Marina in Yaletown has by far been our very favorite stay of all. Apt is very comfortable, clean and has all the amenities you need. Being dog friendly truly made the stay perfect for us as we brought our puggle from CA and found the area to be super dog friendly there is an off leash dog park is only a few min walk along the Marina from the apartment. Being steps from the aqua bus to head over to Granville Island has been so fun. Having the Urban Fare grocery store at the bottom of the building has been convieniently fantastic. Wonderful owners, great location and comfortable apartment makes this place an excellent choice for any stay. We loved it."

"We spent two nights in this condo. Upon arriving, there was a bottle of wine and chocolate awaiting us. This was a wonderful surprise considering we had just fought traffic for the last several hours. The condo was clean, well equipped with everything we needed, and had a great location close to restaurants, shops, etc. The balcony provided a great view of the bay."

"My family of 6 recently stayed 12 nights here after which we left for a week in the Canadian Rockies then tried out another vacation rental in a different part of Vancouver for 9 nights before we took off for home. We like staying in different neighborhoods to get a feel of the local area. In 2012, we stayed in Yaletown. For 2015, we wanted to try Kitsilano and the Trout Lake/Nanaimo area. While staying at our second rental, we realized and unanimously came to the conclusion that Derek's place in the Kitsilano area was so much better suited for our needs as a family for the following reasons. We cook quite often and Safeway just two block away was very convenient. We bought packets of Faresaver tickets there too. After a long day of sightseeing, as the bus dropped us off right by Safeway, we could easily buy groceries and food for our planned home cooked dinner. Since the house was just a short walk away, it was also no big deal carrying bags of groceries. Taking the bus was very convenient because we had several choices of bus stops - West Broadway, MacDonald and 4th Ave. All of these streets had frequent buses whizzing by so the wait was never long. An added plus are the many wonderful restaurants nearby for the times when we were too tired or lazy to cook. The very busy Peaceful Restaurant on Broadway that we tried on our previous 2012 trip has a branch on 4th Ave and we returned specifically for their delicious beef rolls. The Thomas Haas Chocolates patisserie on West Broadway was also a delicious find for their chocolate croissants and the chocolate raspberry cake I got for my husband's birthday. Rain or Shine ice cream on 4th Ave was a hit with us too. We like walking and with the mild spring weather, we walked a lot, frequently to 4th Ave and West Broadway, several times to Kitsilano Beach and even to church nearby to attend services. I could go on and on about the advantages of this location! To top it all, Derek is a wonderful host. His place is lovely and clean. We had more than enough towels, bars of soap and new bottles of shampoo and conditioner. The kitchen was complete for all our cooking requirements. The TV with cable enabled us to watch the NBA games that we were avidly following. The neighborhood is safe and we enjoyed very much walking the tree lined streets and looking at the pretty character homes. We had a wonderful memorable vacation and I can heartily say, Thank you Derek!"
