I stayed at Michelle's basement suite for 40 nights. Just loved it. A bit dark, because it's a typical basement suite, but I didn't mind it at all. Quiet at night. Bedding is very comfortable. Nice and cool down there when it's hot outside. Very spacious and comfortable like you feel home. Michelle is a nice person, friendly, responsive and considerate. When my car got lots of drops from the street trees, she messaged me that I can use the hose outside to wash it away. When it's been hot, she messaged me that I can get a fan from the storage if I need. I didn't tell her anything before the messages but she always thought about us if we were being comfortable there. Thank you so much, Michelle, for having us stay at your basement suite. We already missed your beautiful garden and yummy zucchini!

Thx Mitsue. I am sorry you found the suite a bit dark. The California shutters could have been angled the other way to allow for more light. Best to you all...M

Michelle was such a kind and caring person. She made sure we were well attended at all times, she even left breakfast items for us to have when we arrived. We even needed to use the printer (which is in her part of the house) and she was more than happy to let us use it. The house is well located, easy to reach downtown or wherever else you are going. It is an ideal place to spend your holidays, thank you so very much.

It was a very pleasant stay in Michelle's place in Vancouver. It was our first time using AirBnB and we are glad that it turns out well! We spend about 3 weeks here and We have all good points to talk about Michelle and her place! 1) Location - it is conveniently located: about 7 mins walk to take a bus to downtown and 15 mins walk to take a bus to UBC. - there are grocery stores and Asian grocer within walking distance (eg: Stong's market was about 10 mins walk) - Dunbar theatre is just nearby (5-7 mins walk) which is cool and as excellent as other cineplexes (check out their (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page) 2) Living space - it is spacious, homely and very clean - kitchen is well equipped and kitchenware is provided - it's a garden suite which is well-lit by natural light in the day, except for the living room due to the way it's located 3) Host - Michelle is very nice host who is friendly and responsive to our needs - she checks regularly to ensure that we are okay and exceed our expectations in making us feel at home - she's got green fingers!: she saved our flowers when they were about to wither We will totally recommend this place. Thanks Michelle for your hospitality :)

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable with everything you need, the garden is lovely and very peaceful, the neighborhood is quiet and safe with a beautiful park close by and accessible by transit. And Michelle is a wonderful host, very welcoming, considerate and accomodating. We would certainly recommend this place.

A wonderful house with all what we needed and wished. We spent two weeks, my two kids and I, enjoying the gorgeous town, living in a nice house in a very quiet and green neighborhood. Great experience!

We recently stayed at this lovely home when visiting Vancouver. The accommodations were wonderful. Our hostess Michelle was wonderful. She was very responsive to all our needs and we enjoyed chatting with her after a long day. If you needed her she was available, and if you didn't want to socialize, that was okay too. The house was clean and roomy and provided us a very homey stay. After a long day we could sit out in the garden and enjoy the weather surrounded by lovely flowers. There was a BBQ there which was nice to enjoy a nice dinner on the patio. We will make this our destination whenever we are in Vancouver again.

Michelle's suite was perfect for my needs. The gorgeous garden and patio were a real bonus. At any time there were between 2-4 members of our family staying. It had everything I needed, and it was wonderful to have the host living at the property. Any time I needed anything additional she was always forthcoming. It was a lovely neighborhood. I was really sorry to leave after my one month stay there !

Creative writer who is passionate about gardening, preserving this astounding "hood", and her wonder dog. I have lived in Dunbar since 1998 and over the years remodelled my 1950's Bunglaow. I have had guests from as far as Saudi Arabia and as close to Calgary, AB. In my travels I was fortunate to meet and stay with Lily and Ricardo (Air BnB hosts) from Tlacolula, Oaxaca, Mexico. The experience was life changing as I lived with her and her family and learned the customs of the Zapotec. The Zapotec traditional food of Mole sauces, Chocolate, and Mescal were just some of my faves. Now that I have found Air BnB I hope to share Vancouver with you. As it happens both Lily and Ricardo are coming for a week. What goes around comes around. I am looking forward to seeing them again!
