"Had an incredible experience. This house turned out to be an excellent choice.
The house itself is beautiful and spacious for my family of 6. It is in a wonderful location that is very convenient place to go around and discover Vancouver. Walking distance to many restaurants, groceries like No Frills and Safeway. She provided us our own telephone line, washer and dryer, a lot of plates and complete sets of pots for cooking. Beds are good enough to accomodate 6 people. Parking was an added bonus, aside from providing us a secured parking, our friends and relatives has an access as well. ( as we all know parking is always a problem here Vancouver).
Theresa was a perfect host. She is very friendly and warm. She gave us useful informations and she checked via email to see how we were doing. Everything we needed was provided. Very happy with our 2 week stay. We enjoyed it very much and although we have visited Vancouver several times in the past, this was by far our best experience.
I strongly recommend this house. Ideal for a family a real home away from home.

"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!"
