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!

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....
Accueil génial donne pleins de conseils et de lieux à faire ! Matelas au top ! Proche de tout.
Thanks Alberto for beeing such a good host! This was our first Homestay experience and we felt lucky to find you! His appartement is ideally located near English Bay Beach, Robson street with many shops and also the beautiful Stanley Park for a morning run or relaxing walk! The apartment is well equipped and we were able to use the kitchen to cook.
Alberto shared advices on what to do and where to go for dinner and to have a drink ! We also spend some time with him playing volleyball at the beach with his friends and listening some drummers playing on Tuesday Night.
We loved Vancouver and would definitely recommend travellers to stay with Alberto to make the experience even better !
I stayed with Alberto for 7 weeks, and I honestly couldn't have hoped for a better host.
The apartment was perfect, with all the facilities you need. Location is also perfect, everything you need is just a small walk away.
Alberto gives you the privacy you need, but will also be there when you want to do something fun together. For example, we watched a lot of movies together, or the night he showed me the drumcircle on the beach, which was a lot of fun!
He knows a lot about Vancouver, from the environment and the nature, to all the great places to get some dinner. He showed me around in the city to show me the best places to go for dinner or going out. He gave me a lot of tips about saving money, which places to go, and which places not to go.
Alberto was always ready to help when needed!
If you're looking for a great and unique place to stay in Vancouver with someone who has been living there for a while. Stay with Alberto!!!
