Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

This large, elegant home is perfectly located in the suburbs between downtown Vancouver and the airport. Many shops, cafes, and restaurants are only a short walk away, making it easy to bring in food in the evenings for our large crew. We had a group of 13, including 3 seniors and two young children. The large shaded backyard and wraparound porch were conducive to grilling out and relaxing in the evenings. The house and property were well-maintained, with comfortable bedding, linens, and kitchen items. The owner was extremely thoughtful and friendly, and quick to respond to any questions we had. A large house, there were multiple spaces for people to congregate without feeling crowded. We also booked the separate apartment, which was very attractive and comfortable. I would recommend this property wholeheartedly to anyone.

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to accommodate a large family gathering for our son's wedding.

It was an ideal location and very comfortably suited our needs, young and old alike.

The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. We all really enjoyed our time at this

beautiful home. We would highly recommend this property for large groups.

Warm, inviting and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Great property for large family retreats, with 4 nicely sized bedrooms (2 ensuite) and 2 studies, and 2 more bathrooms (all with walk-in showers). Warmly and sensitively decorated. With the luxury of space enough for private retreats, and multiple spaces for hanging out all together, this made it almost a home away from home for our 2 week stay.

Mike and Cynthia and Sunny the spaniel welcomed us generously and with great spirit. Mike is a wise font of local knowledge, offering great suggestions of what to do, where to eat, and what time was best to hit them.

Mum has difficulty walking, but negotiated the house easily.

Location was excellent, 15 min drive into downtown Vancouver, and 15 min from VYR airport. A great high street just a block from the house with great food choices, when one was not inclined to cook in the well equipped kitchen.

Highly recommended, felt like just like a home away from home.

Very comfortable and nice house

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful experience staying in this house.

My group was consisted of 8 adults and 1 child and the rooms were enough, very clean and cozy for us to stay comfortably. There were basic amenities provided including washing machine, detergent, various tableware/cooking equipments, and seasonings. The location was in very quiet place and we enjoyed going out for a walk when we had time. It was easy to access to the restaurant and shops, 5-10minutes by walk.

I would like to appreciate the hosts for their kindness and warm services provided for us, again.

Great house ... Great location ... Wins GOLD!

  • 5 of 5

Our 50+ women's hockey team rented this amazing house for 6 nights while participating in the American Masters Games. It housed 11 of us (and our gear) comfortably with room to spare. It not only met but exceeded our expectations. Clean and well stocked with all the essentials. Beautiful yard with a lawn for bocce and a basketball court for some ball hockey, lots of on and off street parking, and a huge deck for post game barbecues. This house felt like home. It wins GOLD and so did we !!

Wonderful home for large families or groups!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a memorable family vacation in Vancouver, based at Michael and Cynthia's home in the Kerrisdale neighborhood of Vancouver. The home is large -- our family group consisted of ten adults and five children under age 18, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The home is beautifully decorated and located in a lovely neighborhood. We especially loved the recently added wrap-around deck! The home is close (walking distance) to many diverse and excellent restaurants and is conveniently located for seeing Vancouver's many attractions. Our activities included the Catfe (Cat Cafe) in downtown Vancouver, a whale watching cruise from Victoria, BC, a visit to the neighborhood's beautiful botanical gardens (with its Victorian hedge maze), meals at several superb Vancouver restaurants, and a spectacular trip via gondola and chair lift to the peak of Grouse Mountain. Mike and Cynthia are gracious and helpful hosts. They sent extensive information about their home and area attractions well in advance of our visit. Mike was extremely helpful in a number of "above and beyond" ways, including letting us occupy the home several hours early and being very understanding about a misplaced house key (our fault!) which was located at the last minute. Michael and Cynthia's home has the strongest and most enthusiastic endorsement from our entire family!!
