Perfect stay in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Sid and Alix was wonderful. They were so helpful with restaurant suggestions and with activities to do. Our accommodations were perfect .. Down to the bottle of wine and delicious pastries for breakfast. We were so close to so much that we walked a lot instead of driving. They are wonderful hosts and hostesses and you will thoroughly enjoy them and your stay.

Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Sid and Alix were the best hosts greeting us as we unexpectedly encountered no traffic delays and arrived an hour early. Gracious and accommodating best describes these reliable hosts. Our second stay in this rental while visiting Kitsilano and area was most comfortable in a very well stocked kitchen with luxury bedding. Wifi and HD tv worked extremely efficiently. It was a very clean and very quiet apartment as we did not hear any sounds from above. Thank you Sid and Alix and all the best until we meet again.

Great vacation in Vancouver!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 17 month old daughter stayed in Vancouver at the property for 4 nights. We had a wonderful trip. Very nice home with a great location. Plenty of street parking if you have a car. The owners were very gracious and easy to work with. We would highly recommend and definelty use again if in Vancouver.

Wonderful location and great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

It was great to stay at this beach side apartment. Quiet, clean and with all amenities you need! The location was perfect. Close to transit, parks, the Kits pool and the beach. There were good restaurants nearby and Sid was able to direct us to a few excellent places to eat! The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. A great place to stay!

It was wonderful having somewhere to come home to after a day of exploring the beautiful city.

  • 5 of 5

I really like being able to cook for ourselves, rest and have a relaxing time on a much needed vacation. The two block walk to the beach was beautiful and the mountains and seaside were amazing. Lots of great eating places close by, along with shopping, biking and hiking. It was the best vacation we have had in years.

Excellent hosts, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to stay at Sid and Alex's suite for several weeks as I was transitioning back to Canada from overseas. The location, steps from Kitsilano Beach Park, was perfect for long walks with my dogs and convenient to all amenities.

The suite is as pictured: very well appointed and supplying everything you could need, including nice comfy beds. Good cable and Internet too -- which was much appreciated when the rain kept us indoors for extended periods

Sid and Alex are excellent and generous hosts -- from suggesting places to eat to leaving wine and pastries for their guests. Their patience with my mutts, who weren't always the quietest, and their attention to making sure I had everything I needed, created a wonderful homey environment for all three of us.

Thank you so much, Sid and Alex, for your kindness and helpfulness during our stay. I will certainly be in touch should I ever get back to Vancouver! And I highly recommend anyone considering this property to jump on it. You won't be sorry!
