About the Homestay
Welcome to Vancouver! If you're looking for a great experience and an opportunity to meet a real born and raised local then come stay with me in my apartment. It's located right in the heart of downtown Vancouver! In the beautiful West End neighborhood. Close to everything you could possibly imagine, Stanley Park, English Bay, the Seawall, Art Gallery, Theatres, Shopping (Robson Street is steps away out the front door), Restaurants (the best Korean and Japanese restaurants in the entire city are located 1 block away!) Bus stop is 1 block away, Safeway, Urbanfare, Wholefoods,, President's Choice Independent and No Frills grocery stores all within a 500 metre radius! I could go on listing how close everything is to the apartment but you'll experience it all once you stay here. Now about the apartment. There's on-site laundry, a heated outdoor pool (summer months only), dry sauna, small gym and bike racks (kept covered but outside at the main entrance). I have a great living room with two comfy couches, a 40 inch TV, Wifi and Netflix, the kitchen is stocked with all the necessary equipment to make coffee, tea and cook meals. I work Monday to Friday 8-5 and like to spend my time home cooking delicious food and sweets, enjoying movies or board games with friends. Looking forward to sharing my home with you on your next getaway!

Clean and comfortable, we really enjoyed our stay at Alberto’s. He is situated in a great location, out of the busy but close enough to walk. He gave us great tips and recommendations, as well getting me an instant booking for a hair cut! Really friendly experience, thank you for the stay.
This was our second stay at Albertos flat. He made everything possible to give us our favorite check-in time. We enjoyed our stay and Albertos company very much. :-)
Great place to stay in Vancouver. Clean house and very nice owner. Still needs some improvements for guests, such as a properly place to leave luggages and clothes. Strongly recommend to have a hair drier at guests disposal. Overall, a great place! We'd definitely come back.
Alberto is a super nice host. My husband and I felt home right from the beginning. His flat is very central, you can reach the English Bay the Coal Harbor Bay and Downtown within 10 min walk.
For us it was a real pleasure to stay here and I would recommend it to everyone.
Nous avons passé deux nuits chez Alberto qui s'est montré fort sympathique et accueillant. Son appartement est très confortable, idéalement situé près de Downtown. Nous recommandons cette adresse.
Alberto was a really gracious host who went above and beyond in accommodating us. He was a pleasure to chat and hangout with and was full of great knowledge and advice about the city. Everything about his place was as described and the bed I slept in was extremely comfortable. My friends and I are very glad we chose to stay with Alberto and would do so again in a heartbeat!
Alberto ci ha ospitato nella sua casa in pieno centro a Vancouver. Abbiamo passato tutto il tempo a parlare con lui e ci ha data un sacco di buoni consigli per visitare la città. La camera è spaziosa e pulita, la cucina dotata di ogni comfort. Vivamente consigliato.
Alberto is a wonderful host, and an all round great guy. Super friendly people coming through, excellent food and comfy beds. A+
Prima esperienza del genere, nei molteplici viaggi nel mondo che abbiamo fatto, ottima soluzione rapporto qualità/prezzo. A Vancouver Alberto x noi Consigliatissimo, Gentile, Discreto e non Invadente, a pochissima distanza dal centro, appartamento pulitissimo, minimale, usufruito talvolta della cucina, piscina e piccola palestra disponibile ma non utilizzata da noi x il tempo. Per i prossimi Viaggi continueremo ad utilizzare quasta Formula. Five Stars!!!!
Arlberto is an amazing host. Not only friendly and very very helpful, he gave me a lot of really good advices about nice restaurant and possibilities for shopping. The room was absolutely clear and the bed is simply wow!
The apartment is quite close to everything that makes fun: the beach, stanley park, at lot of nice restaurants and bars.
If you want to have an unforgettable trip then I would absolutely recommend you Albertos' room....
