Alison's house was great, very clean and pretty. Alison herself was wonderful, very accommodating and helpful in getting to know her part of Vancouver. Bed was so comfortable, and I would definitely recommend.

Alison was the perfect host, and just what we needed on our stopover in Vancouver. Her local knowledge is second to none and Ginger the cat is fab!

Alison provided a welcoming space for our visit. She was quite thoughtful in ensuring that all our needs were met (e.g. recommended places to eat, clean-towels, jug of cold water in our room, phone charger). Her home is lovely (built in 1912!!! loved that!) and it was in a neighbourhood that we were looking to explore in Van. Would book this airbnb location again - happily.

A lovely, pet-friendly home, with delightful hosts Allison and Annabelle. Our puppy was more than welcome and very much enjoyed his stay as well!

Alison and her daughter are the sweetest hosts, and their home is adorable and very welcoming. She definitely knows her way around the area and was extremely helpful in recommending places try! The location is perfect for getting around, very close to the bus and even an easy walk to restaurants or bars. As a first time airbnb user, Alison's hospitality was reassuring and made us feel right at home.
