I stayed at Jane's house for a week. She is a helpful host and gave me a ride from the airport. I enjoyed walking along the seawall everyday. It was a great stay.
Jane is a wonderful host who can help you anytime you need. Her place is well located and the room is really clean
She is like family to me. I wish i could stay longer! Very good location and helpful getting around. I hope to stay in touch with her! Thank you for a wonderful and 1st time in Vancouver experience!
great location, very kind host
I felt very welcome at Janes house. She helped me a lot in things like figuring out the bus system or picking me up from the airport and show you vancouver. My room was clean and comfortable. It was a very nice stay and if I will return to Vancouver in one day i will stay in her home again.
Thanks Jane for everything - in appreciated it a lot!
Thanks for being So welcoming and accommodating Jane! My arrival time changed multiple times, and Jane was fine with me arriving quite late, past midnight! She stayed up and welcomed me, helping me feel right at home! The room was nice, quiet and dark! I had a great sleep both nights I stayed! Jane's daughter was also very welcoming and sweet to me! I'd stay there again in a heart beat!
Jane met me at the airport. Gave me an orientation walk around her area which was great. On the doorstep of Granville island in False Creek. A lovely lady who doesn't do the "Domestic Goddess" thing so if you can go with the flow and like dogs (there's 2) you won't find a better home from home. Thanks Jane!
Clean comfortable and quiet, excellent host and in an amazing location. Had a great stay.
What an absolute star Jane is as a host. Willing to help in anyway possible (buying an iron and ironing board as I needed one, taking me to the airport at 5am despite us insisting not to), very hospitable (providing new bedding, allowing for odd time schedules) and generally an all round nice person (actual quote from friends who met her "She's absolutely lovely!").
She's not kidding when she says the dog is a gent. He might seem big but he was fine with me within a day (and I don't really get on with dogs).
With a location and host like this, you won't find a better deal in Vancouver.
