Lovely large house really close to Commercial Drive. Tami was a great host, really welcoming. Especially good food recommendations! Thanks!

Tami was wonderful! Even though she was across the globe she responded promptly to emails and always answered my questions. She put me in touch with the caretaker of the house, Julius, who was the kindest person on earth! He let us into the house a few hours early, as our travel plans changed last minute. The neighborhood was nice. We did some some homeless people in the park one block away, but our block seemed very safe and secure. We were within walking distance from some wonderful shops and places to eat.

Although only a couple of blocks off busy Commercial Dr, the neighbourhood was quiet. Public transport was easily accessible...we never used our car and we went all over the city - Stanley Park, Grouse Mtn, BC Place stadium. The house was great for the 4 of us...lots of room, very comfortable, we cooked some of our own meals. Tami was very accessible by email (out of the country). Unfortunately, her caretaker was unexpectedly unavailable for the first day (hope he is feeling better!) Any questions/concerns we had were quickly answered.

We knew from the photos this place was going to be charming - and it was - but what we didn't realize was how great and convenient the neighborhood was: a fantastic park a half block away, SkyTrain access with a 10 minute walk, tons and tons of dining/shopping/drinking options on Commercial Drive. The place absolutely matched the photos and the description. Though it has some electrical and plumbing quirks that you would expect from any old building, it still made for a perfect and comfortable place to stay for our group of 6. A quick note: there is a cat who lives here, so if you have extreme cat allergies or are EXTREMELY sensitive to pet smells, this may not be the best place for you - otherwise, you'll never notice it.

We had a great weekend at this beautiful home in East Van. The home is perfectly appointed, and a fantastic location. We had so much fun exploring the parks, markets and restaurants on Commercial drive with our 3-year old, and loved being able to come 'home' to the character and charm of this home. As our daughter said, "I love this house! It's so beautiful." Tami thought of everything to make our stay easy and comfortable, and was always immediately responsive with any questions.

We enjoyed a wonderful couple of days in Vancouver. Tami was an excellent host to work with, her home is exactly as pictured and once you are there you can truly appreciate the charm and details of the house. The area near the home offers great restaurants, ease to transportation and a wonderful mix of local residents.
