Ellen and Juan were very gracious hosts. They were very accommodating and their home is centrally located near a ton of restaurants, cafes, and just a 10 min drive to downtown. The home was very well kept and clean and we can't wait to come back to Vancouver for another visit.

We had a terrific time staying at Ellen and Juans house in Vancouver. The house was charming, clean and very well-appointed. We found it very kid-friendly as well, with a great backyard and lots of toys. It is located in a great residential neighborhood that is also close to downtown and several great restaurants. Ellen and Juan were great hosts and were very easy to communicate with before and during our stay.

Ellen was very responsive during my entire stay at her house. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood. We had good night sleep during our stay which helps our little ones tremendously. The location is very close to downtown and the house is very spacious and clean. Check in and check out is very easy too. Overall we had a great time in Vancouver!

We had a wonderful vacation week in Vancouver. Ellen and Juan's home was exactly as listed and perfect for our young family and grandparents. Having a kid-friendly home base to come back to everyday was perfect and made this vacation feel so much more relaxing. Our kids loved playing with the toys inside and in the backyard and we loved having an amazing kitchen and living space. The neighbourhood was very quiet while also being very central. All-round perfect accommodations!

Love this place! We travel with another family, 8 people total and there are 4 young children. Kids enjoy playing toys inside and in the yard/garden. The house can comfortably fit us, one family on first floor the other upstairs. Kitchen is great. Make sure brew your coffee with the provided kit. I am not a coffee person but my wife loves the coffee from it. It's not a new house, but it's very clean well maintained. One minor issue in summer is air conditioner works quite slowly, and we arrived on a warm day. But later in the night cools down so we still could sleep very.

My wife and I brought our three kids (one baby) and my father on our first trip to Vancouver and this was the perfect place. Good location, large enough for all, in a quiet neighborhood, and with a lovely backyard. It has a plush garden and an apple tree with tart but very delicious fruit, yet the yard is still suitable for family play. The deck, grill, and patio furniture also made for excellent meal times. Hosts (Ellen, Juan, and Megan) were very responsive and engaged. We would love to come back.

Ellen and Juan's home is a lovely house in a quiet neighbourhood of Vancouver. With the 19 bus we were able to get everywhere we wanted to go. Communication was very good and the hosts were quite responsive and helpful at all times. Our ever increasing group, we started out our trip with four and doubled in size by the end of the stay, really enjoyed Vancouver and Ellen and Juan's home.
