I had a wonderful stay in Dianne's home. First of all, the house is awesome and very big. I had my own privacy. There is the Lynn Valley Center you can walk to, with nice coffee shops, stores and all you could need. The bus is 10 minutes distance walk, to go to Downtown easily. Dianne took me to the Canyon with the Suspension Bridge, it was very nice and we had a lot of fun. Her friend showed me the neighbourhood too. Dianne is busy as she works a lot, but her friend was always available for any question, as well as her, when I asked her. So I would recommend this place for sure, and will definitely be back!
- The house was pretty clean and the room we had was good.
- Fair price regarding the neighbourhood.
- From time to time, E. (Diane’s friend) shared some food with us.
- No refund possible.
- Washing machine and dryer’s access, only once a week even for a couple.
- Host’s behaviour.
Diane is a cold and distant person. We are open minded people and we understand that her job was very tiring and that we were not her friends, just roommates. Nonetheless, we really felt like she talked to us mostly out of her interest.
By the end of our rental, we had to go back as soon as possible to France because of a tragic event in my family and we had to sell the car quickly. However they tried to take advantage of the situation and negotiate. We were open to the negotiation but every time we accepted their new offer, they found new excuses to get it even cheaper. We really thought that they were going to buy it and instead of saving time, we lost valuable time and money because we were not refunded for the rest of the month.
Eventually, my boyfriend had to stay longer and I had to go back to France alone. Because of them, he missed my father’s funerals.
Unfortunately, they did not have the Canadian’s state of mind.
The place was great, thanks to Dianne and her family.
She was amazing, plus we had lots in common! I fell in love with her sweet cat Chelsey! I never had my own cats sleep beside me the entire nights! ❤ I'll deffinetly be back!
Dianne is a nice and friendly woman.Her kids are great too.
The house and the family was great
Thanks to dinane.
Not an homestay, just a bad room rent.
No service written on the Homestay agreement has been done.
We ran away after 2 of 6 months booked.
No refund, the only point of the agreement followed.
This guest awarded the host 3 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
I stayed at with Dianne for about a month. Dianne is really a friendly and polite person though through her job she's oftenly not at home, so it's not gonna be a stay with that much interaction between you and the host. The home is beautiful, so is the neighborhood! Everything is quite easily to reach e.g. a small shopping mall or bus stations. I really liked it here, but wished some more "family time" with the host to learn some more about the country and to improve my English.
Wish everyone a great stay!
