I had a really exciting stay in their home and enjoyed every day. Exciting views from the 17th floor and a short way to downtown. They are very friendly person, I got so much support from them. Definitely I would recommend to stay with them.
Had a wonderful stay with Ally. Highly recommend it!! Great location, very safe area and so close to everything and easy link to airport Fabulous host! Ally is so kind and helpful. Will definitely be back
Ally and Jimmy are the sweetest people, they were always there to make my stay pleasant and I would happily recommend their place to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay in Vancouver.
Had a great time visiting Vancouver. Everything was so close that I was able to walk to most attractions. The stay with Ally and Jim was easy going and we enjoyed good conversations. The bed was excellent for my back and the view from the room was amazing (all the way to mount Baker in Washington state). Access to and from the airport was very easy. I would definitely recommend Ally's place to anyone visiting Vancouver!
Ally and Jimmy are the nicest and very welcoming hosts I've ever met. I felt truly like at home (except of their unique view on False Creek that reminds it's not my place), it is peacefull, awsome and clean there, excellent geographic situation.
We exchanged a lots of emails before my arrival and Ally paid really a lot of attention to every detail of my trip, she provided all necessary information about Vancouver and surroundings, things to do & see. Actually, they were both really helpful. ;) I did as much as possible what they recommanded and can confirm that it's worth it. I can definitely recommand this place as I'll come back one day if "castors" are still there! Thank you
Had a really nice stay in Vancouver. Was an amazing apartment with nice views and great location. Ally and Jim were very nice couple. They were extremely helpful with information about what there is to do and how to get about. Will miss them both dearly.
Oh my gosh! I had the most beautiful experience spending time with Ally and Jimmy. My heart is filled with such gratitude for their kindness, compassion and generosity. I spent two days in their beautiful apartment that felt like home and I was part of the family. I was fortunate enough to get lots and lots of kitty love from Lilly, which was an added bonus because I had a bunch of dental work done and I needed a little healing love. I am planning on returning in the fall, if they will have me. Fingers crossed.
This was my first Homestay and It was excellent. My hosts were very gracious. The accommodation beyond what I expected. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
I stayed with Ally and Jimmy in their beautiful home for close to a month and absolutely loved it. Ally and Jimmy are two of the most loving, generous and genuine people you'll ever meet. They went out of their way to not only make me feel welcome but a part of their family. They're also very engaging and we always had great conversations. I really couldn't have asked for better hosts. They have become more like family than hosts now and I would love to stay with them again!
