    Fara was amazing, very hospitable and kind. The house was clean and had all the necessary amenities. Most of the time, the house was quiet, allowing for a comfortable rest. Whenever I needed anything, I would call, and she would bring it for me.

    I was very pleased with my stay at Fara’s place. You can book a room here if you’re looking for a nice, clean, warm and homey environment. Fara was extremely generous with her advice too making this place one of my favourites homestay experiences in Vancouver. Highly recommended.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
