The room was spacious, cozy and clean. Linda and Howard are more than just hosts, they are a splendid couple who made me feel welcome from the get-go. They always made sure I was ok, they provided me with precious information about the marvellous city of Vancouver and helped me while I was looking for a job. The house is located in a nice and tranquil area with loads of green and it served by many bus lines. If it wasn't for Linda and Howard my stay in Vancouver would have probably been a lot different; so, I highly encourage anyone who is interested in visiting/studying in Vancouver to spend their time in Linda & Howard's place.
I had a very good time with Howard & Linda.
They are kind, helpful and sweet.
Completely, good experience.
Linda was extremely friendly, a great space in a great neighbourhood. What more could you want?
Linda and Howard are a very nice and helpful couple. The response is very soon. It was our first experience in a homestay and it was very very good. It is cheaper and we had a kitchen and a fridge, what was very important for us vegans. By Linda and Howard it is quiet and clean. Our room was wonderful. We are very happy to do our first experience with homestay by Linda and Howard.
Amazing people always available for giving suggestions and advices. Highly recommend!
I stayed with Linda and Howard for ten days and they are really really nice and caring people. You can get to downtown and other areas of Vancouver easily.
So if you want to enjoy your stay in Vancouver this is the right place to go!!
A super nice couple, highly recomend!
