Guestbook comments from the owner

Liz is an amazing host - it was easy for us to check in and the space is so cute and well designed! Liz is a creative inspiration with luxe and unexpected high end appointments. Her beds were super comfy! Great TVs and bathrooms with super showers.

We had some questions about how things operated and she responded within minutes with answers. Really this was so much more than a hotel - a beautifully designed home.

The property is pretty quiet being off the street and there is amble free street parking close by.

We found tons of great restaurants and boutique shops nearby. This is such a great up and coming neighborhood with all sorts of top end chefs and artisans.

We will definitely stay here again and we are looking forward to trying out some of her other properties.

Not great neighborhood - Pictures are better than reality

  • 3 of 5

I should have done a google view of the street. It is basically in a strip of older condos down an alleyway. Not the best location as far as neighborhood. Everything around it is a little rundown. The vibe inside does not match the outside

Regarding condition. Everything in the pictures is there but closer inspection just a little more worn in than expected but not bad. The upstairs room proved to be much better than downstairs. The living area is pretty tight.

Our biggest complaint was the air conditioning. It was a good 7-8 degrees hotter upstairs than downstairs. The first night some people were miserable. To the credit of the landlord they delivered fans which did help. Also be prepared if you are 8 people it's 2 blow up mattress for 7 and 8.

Bangtel was attentive when we did text them which was great. I jumped on this based on Top Ten award but did not live up to that.

a few bumps to an overall awesome stay!

  • 4 of 5

with lots of questions upon planning my best friends bachelorette we stumbled upon this place. super cute and hip, i decided through vrbo it was within our budget. unfortunately 3 days before the trip they called me stating the price i paid was incorrect and if we didn't double it we would have to cancel our stay for the weekend. after a stressful conversation, we got a call saying it was all worked out and to forget about it. i was happy it was resolved, but it stressed me out in general to have to scurry last minute looking for other options.

once we got to the place it was as amazing as expected though. so cute and they gave us complimentary champagne and wine (i'm sure for the inconvenience) which was a nice touch. we were in heaven with photo-ops and overall had an amazing stay! the rooftop hangs were an added bonus to an already fun stay! my only negative of the place was it smelled a tad like cigarettes once we got there, and that smell didn't go away. we are assuming vents are shared which made neighbors cigarette smells linger, but it wasn't anything that ruined our stay!

Liz, Nadiah and the whole team was great. We had an issue with our rental and they promptly resolved the problem. I highly recommend staying at one of Liz's properties.

Wonderful rental. Everything was immaculately clean, and the apartment was spacious and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location, near many restaurants and bars. The bedrooms were spacious, and the host provided soap and towels. The kitchen was also well equipped with plates and utensils. Everything was clean and comfortable.

Perfect Bachelorette House!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect house for a bachelorette party ~10 girls. Really nice to have 3 bathrooms (2 showers) for girls to get ready in. Had an issue with one toilet and they sent someone out to fix it within a few hours and she also brought us 2 complementary bottles of champagne for the inconvenience. Personal assistant available for questions via call/text 24/7 and she really did answer within the hour which was super nice and convenient. The only complaints we had are that the house got super hot upstairs even though we had the air on full blast. It seemed like the air only reaches the downstairs and was really uncomfortable. Middle bedroom didn't even have vents for air to come out. May want to consider bringing fans with you. Fridge is also pretty small so may want to consider bringing a cooler if you need a lot of space. There was also a lot of bugs in the house-ants in the kitchen and other beadles in the living room. It wasn't like it ruined our stay, but it was definitely annoying and worth mentioning to future guests. Although a bit outside the city it is just a quick uber ride away. Overall would stay in the house again. Liz & the Bangtel staff are super nice!

Freakin Amazing

  • 5 of 5

A couple of friends and I stayed in the house for a bachelorette weekend! Every single girl absolutely loved the house. There were so many cool things that stuck out and gave the perfect vibe for our weekend. The beds were comfortable and the house was very clean. I would definitely stay again. Thanks!
