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 a super great host I have ever met. Friendly, helpful and kind. The breakfast is good and the place is so comfortable. The bus stop just a few steps in front of house. Walking about 10-15 minutes to reach the quay and there are plenty of shops and restaurant. There are buses to downtown and west Vancouver which only takes about 20-30minutes.
    Strategic location for short term or even long term stay.

    Lynn and Michael are an adorable old couple and they are very friendly. The house is ok and easy to find. Really good place and near everthing (Lonsdale avenue), the bus stop was in front of the door. The flexibility for the check-in was really confortable.

    The inside was ok. Might be cleaner. The pictures are all safe and identicals. Lynn and Michael offer you the breakfast and take time to explain the rules of the house. Lynn and Michael let me use their kitchen one time which was closed for travellers but a microwave still available. The students to the other rooms are very sympathic and cool. I Will recommand it without hesitation but only for short term or just for sleep.

    The room was ok. But, the window is a bad isolator. It was really cold and the heat did not work well, so you have to carry 2 sheets. The room’s window gives to the parking residence house. Impossible to sleep with the doors clapping everytime. If you let the light turn on, it flash every 15mn. Anyway, I didn’t had a bad stay at all, but I am going back home really tired. I Will recommand it and everything was Ok but for me 1month was nearly too much.

    Thanks!

    Homestay Host Family Lynn in ,

    I have been hosting full-time for many year and I am very proud to say with glowing reviews. I don’t think Aryss understands the word or the concept of “Homestay “. Upon arrival I showed him around my house and introduced him to the other three male guests, as well as my husband and then onto his room. Aris stated that my house was just “OK “. I take exception to that because I literally have just finished renovating my house to the tune of $85,000 . I have had other guests come to my home and they all said “how gorgeous or how beautiful “then he implied my house was not clean. I am retired so I am home all day, cleaning, and tidying up after everyone, Aryss every day left a mess in the shared bathroom. We all understand We must clean up after ourselves in order to leave the house clean for the next person. Aryss did not understand this concept. I think he thought my home should be a restaurant or a hotel. I offered him a beautiful breakfast every morning which consisted of quiche, banana, bread, fresh fruit, yogurt, orange juice, and coffee or tea which he proceeded to throw in the garbage until I spoke to him about the waste of food. He said “no breakfast thank you “as far as any other meals go, he was on his own. I had already advised him not to use my stove. As per my house insurance company. He could use the microwave, air fryer, griddle, rice, cooker, and vegetable steamer. This all seems to work for my other long-term guests that are all booked for two years in my house. Now that it is November I give all my guests two quilts for their bed which has nothing to do with my heating system in my house. Which works perfectly fine! I also have to point out that Aris was not in sync with the rest of the world. Most nights he would stay up till 6 AM in the morning and then sleep all day till approximately 4 PM in the afternoon, so that is why he complained about the neighbours in my back carport Coming and going. I could go on disputing all these ridiculous comments of his but I won’t. If my Homestay was really as bad as he claims then why did he ask if he could stay longer? I didn’t want him here for another day longer.So I wish him luck…. Somewhere else !

    Lynn is one of the kindest people I've ever met. Her home is beautiful! She even made me an early breakfast before my early morning flight home. The pumpkin bread was delicious! 10 out of 5 stars!

    Lynn is always kind and helpful. I stayed about 5 months. She cooked delicious meal everyday. Also, the location was very good, the bus stop was right in front of the house. It was very convenient to go to the language school downtown every day. The room was very clean and the view from the window was great. It was my first homestay, but I felt safe and comfortable every day. Lynn is the best host and I highly recommend her.
