About the Homestay
A lovely apartment nestled at the foot of the North Shore Mountains of Vancouver, Canada, overlooking beautiful downtown Vancouver and the Pacific Ocean. In summer, the feeling of a cozy resort with a lovely swimming pool nestled in the old growth trees of the West Coast! In winter, hiking, skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing are only minutes away and Whistler is only a 90 minute drive.
At the same time, my home is in a quiet, residential area with only a few steps to public transportation. On the way to the bus, there's a coffee shop, a pub, restaurants and grocery stores.
Rita's home is your perfect homestay in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia!

Great stay with Rita, I highly recommend stay with her, she was very kind and helpful , location is great not far from downtown by Bus-Sea bus and services around house.

Super Nice, Super Friendly, Super Helpful,
Rita was a wonderful host for my stay in Vancouver. Her place was clean and tidy and there was always a fresh pot of coffee ready for me in the morning. She recommended places I should visit and also gave me a lift to catch a bus when I was running late. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.
My stay at Rita´s home has been wonderful. Even though I booked last minute everything was perfectly prepared. It is a cozy, clean and calm room/household. Every morning I have been served a very delicious breakfast and when ever I needed help or a tip I could count on Rita. To summarize my stay: I felt welcome and at home since the first minute I arrived :) Therefore I would definitely recommend this homestay to everybody searching for a great place to stay in Vancouver.
The stay with Rita was excellent. Rita made sure i had everything i needed. The location is superb! Such a nice view, close to shops etc. Perfect experience, 10/10, will be staying again next time I'm in Vancouver.
Lovely welcoming host. Very clean room & comfortable bed. I slept so well!
I would definitely recommend this homestay to others!
