The fully equipped kitchen comes with a full-size fridge with freezer, stove, dishwasher, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, wok, and basic condiments. Laundry services are available.

Who stays here: The apartment is ideal for singles or a couple on holidays, families of UBC students, those visiting patients in local hospitals, visiting professionals, or overflow for guests attending family events.

Guests will have access to a fully equipped kitchen, a washer and dryer for the exclusive use of the guests, and a large screen TV.

Interaction with guests

We are available to help guests with directions or information about things to do in the neighbourhood or the city. We try to welcome each guest, and ensure everything is working well for them. Then we are only a phone call or door knock away as we live in the other part of the house.

Other things to note

NOTE - If you're allergic to cats. We have a cat in the upstairs of the house, which is our living space. While the spaces are completely separate, the cat has lived in the apartment with us during January and February while we renovated our residence. The apartment has since been thoroughly cleaned, but we wanted to mention this for people who may be highly allergic.

David and Patti's place was much above our expectations. They have a beautiful little garden in front of the house. The place was very clean, and there were many things we did not expect such as food in the fridge and an umbrella for rainy days. Our stay was wonderful!

You cannot go wrong with David and Patti's place if you are looking to stay in Vancouver! Not only is the location wonderful (right beside UBC and one bus to downtown), but they go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. I will definitely be staying here in the future if I ever find myself in town, and will be recommending their place to my friends and family back home!

Our stay in the apartment of David & Patti was perfect! First of all, we would like to thank David & Patti for their kind attention each moment. When we have arrived, we were surprised that the apartment was fully equipped and the hosts welcomed us with food in a fridge and sweets (that is so important for the first day of adaptation after long travel). The quality and the distribution of equipment was useful, convenient and practical. The garden at the entrance of the house is espectacular. The apartment is situated in a quiet residencial area near UBC and near Pacific Garden. Perfect for walks and training. You easily can travel to Downtown with the buses. We would recommend 100%.

David and Patti were excellent hosts! Great place to stay. Very homey and welcoming. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for somewhere quiet but still close the action as well. Thanks!

We enjoyed our month long stay at David and Patti's place. The suite is clean, modern and well equipped. Dunbar is great neighborhood - everything you need is within walking distance. David and Patti are great and responsive hosts. They even had some toys in the suite for our baby boy. So sweet!

David & Patti User ProfileDavid & Patti is a superhost.

Patti and David are long-time residents of Vancouver but didn't start out here. Patti hails from the centre of Canada (where it's a lot colder) and David spent his formative years in Dublin, Ireland. As seasoned travellers ourselves, we understand the importance of comfortable, safe and relaxing accommodations, and have tried to create such a space for our guests. Patti works in public relations in downtown Vancouver, a 15 minute drive away, and David is a marketing consultant working from a home office. We both enjoy being physically active, and chose to live in Dunbar because of its proximity to green space and local beaches. We look forward to welcoming you to our apartment and ensuring your experience is a great one.
