THIS HOME *REALLY* DELIVERS!

  • 5 of 5

This Lane/Alley home was fantastic. The space is so well designed that you feel every comfort, as if it's your own home. Three full bedrooms and two good sized bathrooms make being in the home as comfortable as ever. Brian and Kelly really thought of everything when designing this home, and it's also very tastefully decorated. The location is also fantastic; close the UBC and easy access to the nearby beaches, shopping and downtown. And as long as there isn't too much of a cloud cover, you wake up to one of the best views in the city. The street is also quiet, so you won't be awoken by noise. IF you're lucky enough to pick dates that Brian and Kelly's place is available, book it immediately because someone else will get it before you!

Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

A family with young children, we spent five months at the Dunbar when my wife had a sabbatical as a visiting scholar at UBC. Great house, great neighbourhood, great place to live in. After a long travel from overseas with the kids and 9hr jetlag it was great to come “home” to a full fridge and beds ready to get into. Great service from Kelly and Brian, all the way along, no matter what. The house is fully furnished so we did not have to think about anything when we arrived with only clothes in our suitcases. The patio outside of the house is quiet, perfectly maintained and child safe, even for our 2-year old who like to run and climb everywhere. Easy and quiet stroll in the neighbourhood, just around the house or to the great trees of Pacific Spirit park or down to Jericho beach to enjoy the view over English Bay and the mountains on the other side. No car needed: for 5 months and with a family, we did not miss our own car. We mainly used buses, Translink is doing a great job with the buses and the house is well connected to the bus network, and one of the car sharing program when a car was needed.

Owner's Response: Benoit and Family thank you for your thoughtful review. We were very pleased to have your family stay with us and it was great to see how quickly the children overcame their shyness and enjoyed their Canadian experience. Sincerely hope that our paths cross again. All the best.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Getting around town is a breeze in this perfectly located condo. We walked to restaurants, multiple shops and down to the sea wall. It's easy to catch the aqua bus from the park down at the water and that will take you over to Granville Island. The neighborhood is quiet and the condo is well appointed. The building is secure and parking is in the garage below. You can leave the windows open for the fresh night air or use one of the fans provided. Over all this is a great spot to start your adventures in Vancouver.

Great first experience!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Dunbar was the first time that I have used VRBO and I was a bit nervous. However, Brian and Kelly were able to promptly answer any of my questions, either by phone or email. They were very friendly and easy to work with. The location was very easy to find and is just a short drive to the beach or downtown. I was very happy that the pictures that are shared on VRBO are EXACTLY what the property looks like. The neighbourhood is quiet, we had all the comforts of home and the property is beautifully landscaped. I would highly recommend the Dunbar to anyone that is looking for a place to stay close to Downtown or in the University area.

Fantastic service, excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is great, not far from downtown, but a safe quiet area with very little surround noise. It was really like a home from home, with plenty of crockery/cutlery for a large group, facilities like the washer and dryer were provided with soap powder and softener, plenty of towels - really everything you could need. Close to local parks and beaches for days when you just want to chill out. Free parking. Brian made himself available for all questions and has lots of local knowledge. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to family and friends.

The only negative aspect I would mention (and it is very minor) is that there are stairs (not too many, but they are made of wood) into the lounge area from the front door, and down to the bedrooms below, which, if you had any mobility issues, these may be a concern.

Fantastic vacation home, wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I came to Vancouver for a week to attend a family wedding. We wanted to be in a home rather than a hotel, so that we could spend more time together. Brian and Kelly's house was beyond our expectations (my family is very selective about accommodation). This is a very high end, lovely home and is exceptionally well maintained. It was wonderful to be in a beautiful neighborhood and home, and spend time together as a family around the kitchen table. The garden is lovely and we used the BBQ to grill some delicious local salmon (kitchen had all the utensils needed). If only all vacation homes were like this one.....Thank you, Brian and Kelly.
