Why Lisa Forman chose Vancouver

The neighborhood! It's a great place with lots of young families and a sense of community. Also centrally located close to downtown. Easy to hop on transit or drive to local tourist attractions.

What makes this studio unique

Many traveler tell me they love this space. It's a new building so it feels clean and spacious. Even though it sits on the same lot as my house you have privacy. The natural light feels great. Opening the double French doors that lead to the patio and the street feel great on a beautiful day. Very nice atmosphere to return to after a day exploring Vancouver. Put your feet up, have nice drink, read a book and watch the world go by in a fantastic neighbourhood.

Lisa was a pleasure to deal with throughout and the space was exactly as advertised. We were travelling as a full family of 5 (one toddler) and was able to to arrange the accommodation to comfortably fit all of us. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great location and space

  • 5 of 5

This apartment fit three of us very comfortably. Everything felt new and clean. Lisa was a great host and the location was great - in a nice neighborhood but close enough to downtown. Would definitely stay again if I'm in Vancouver!

This is an excellent spot for anyone who wants to tour vancouver. I enjoyed the spot and where it was located. I found the home itself not to be very clean-- there were spider webs every where (which led to a lot of spiders, of course) and the place was very dusty. My boyfriend and I would have appreciated it to be cleaned and vacuumed before our stay. We also had difficulties finding the location once we arrived in vancouver because the owner did not give us the address. Other than that, we were happy.
