What happens when a "gassy" Englishman rows into town feeling thirsty? A pub is born. And from that a city—in this case Vancouver. Though the pubs are plentiful, food and drink aren’t the only things to take in during your trip. In its 150 years, Vancouver has grown into a cosmopolitan city nestled in the great outdoors. Enjoy the snow-capped mountains, waterfront forests, cityside beaches, Olympic history and the world’s highest suspension bridge.

    Lynn is very kind and always smiling. It was a real pleasure to spent my last two days in her home, which is beautiful (and my bed sooo comfortable), and nearby downtown (around fifteen minute by seabus with a stop bus just downstair her house). I recommend everyone who are looking for a nice place to go in Lynn's house !

    My stay at Lynns place was the first one on my journey to Canada. And it was the perfect place to start with! Lynn is such a warm, welcoming person. I felt at home immideately! The international "family" is great. We had nice chats in the morning, enjoying Lynns breakfast and planning our days. And in the evening a nice glas of wine while sharing our stories;) The bus stop is right outside the door and Longsdale Quay is a short walk away. I loved walking down there in the morning and take the seebus downtown and explore Vancouver. I definetely recommend staying at Lynns place.

    Lynn is the perfect hostess. She is very welcoming and professional. I arrived at a late hour but she still took time to show me the necessary and made me feel so welcome and at ease in her home. Her home is in an excellent location . I cannot recommend her more highly and will most definitely stay with her again on my next trip. (I just hope she is free as she is so good she gets booked up) Thank you Lynn.

    We had a very pleasant stay at Lynn's house for 3 nights. For $10 each, Lynn cooked us delicious, generous and healthy dinners. We also enjoyed the plentiful breakfast each morning. We found Lynn to be a friendly, helpful and reliable hostess. Our room was comfortable and had little extra, like tourist info. pamphlets, chocolate candies, shampoo and soap. The bed and room were warm and relaxing. Her house is close to the SeaBus Terminal in Lonsdale and some notable Vancouver tourist attractions. Thank you Lynn.
