    It was a lovely stay at Phil and Mehrshid 's home. They are so kind and friendly. And I'm grateful for joining the Christmas dinner. It was special memory!
    Although I haven't talked much, still felt warm and memorable.
    Thank you Phil and Mehrshid so much :)

    It was an absolute pleasure staying at their place. Phil and Mehrshid are very kind, humble and amazing hosts. They treat their guests as a family member and never make you feel away from home. Went there as a guest but returned as a family. Thanks a lot Phil and Mehrshid for everything.!!

    Hi Phil, I couldn't say a proper goodbye so here it is now - thanks for making me feel at home. Your sightseeing advice really helped me to get through the 2 days in Vancouver, and so did your umbrella! Your place is a lovely nest and I'll see you again during my next Vancouver visit.

    Phil is an excellent host and his house has the best conditions for a nice stay in North Vancouver, as well as having an excellent location for all people who like hiking and ecotourism like me. And even though I don't speak English very well, Phil went out of his way to make me feel great, and if I return to Vancouver in the future, I won't hesitate to stay at his place again.

    My stay with Phil and Mehrshid was very enjoyable and comfortable. They are nice, understanding grounded, and travel/hosting-wise; willing to converse and offer advice on local travel, sightseeing, society and other subjects. They provided a nice upper floor bedroom in a beautiful home with a beautiful mountain view from windows. The location itself is scenic and close to nature with regular bus service linking quickly to transit hubs in North Vancouver (Lonsdale Quay) as well as Vancouver Central (Waterfront Station) and then one can go anywhere. Due to my busy sunrise to sunset travel plan, I had only few occasions to talk with them but those were pleasant and full of helpful information for which I sincerely thank them. I would recommend them to any traveler without hesitation.

    Phil and Mehrshid are wonderful and kind hosts. Their home is nice and clean, with fascinating furniture.
    I am an international student at UBC. Phil kindly assisted me in finding a permanent residence near UBC, as Phil's place was so far away. I highly recommend Phil and Mershid homestay as the place to begin your adventure if you have any plans to move to Vancouver or just visit.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
