Peter and Robin are very nice hosts I met in Vancouver. The house is clean and all utilities are easily usable. I've got so many travel tips from them about Vancouver and Canada. I would recommend their place to every one who plans to stay there.
Great hosts and great neighborhood! Robin and Peter made us feel very welcome and their home and yard were very comfortable. They had great advice about what to see, where to eat locally and even had bikes for us to ride. Lovely sunny kitchen and great coffee helped us non-morning people wake up every morning.
Robin and Peter are a lovely couple, very communicative, easy-going, open-minded, friendly and helpful. Their home is located perfect in a quiet street besides "the drive" a wonderful street with many great restaurants,bars and small shops. We felt like home and enjoyed a nice organic breakfast in their big kitchen or on the sunny patio and enjoyed exploring the city by bikes. The room and shared bathroom has been very clean and the blue room was big and cool during the hot summer days. The only thing you should note, you have to climb a steep stairs to get to your room.
We loved our stay at Peter and Robin's. They couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. The facilities are excellent with access to the patio as well as a large living area & kitchen. The neighbourhood is out of downtown but lively with lots of restaurants and entertainment. Public transport is frequent to downtown. I particularly enjoyed having time to talk to our host about real life in Canada and meeting the other Airbnb quests.
I had a great stay! Peter and Robin are fantastic people and helped me out in many way douring my stay.
The house is close to transportation, shops/resturants and very quiet in the night.
In the sunny days the garden is very relaxing, bed was very confortable and I found everithing that I needed for my stay.
I would definitely stay again here, and recommend this host to people staying in Vancouver.
I got a friendly email when i booked, assurance that even though i was going to be later than expected, all would be well and then, when I arrived, a very friendly welcome. there was a tour of the home and a real "make yourself at home" feeling when I arrived. All of these factors made me feel very welcome. the description and pictures perfectly captured the experience. It was even better than I expected and i had high expectations
Robin and Peter were both there to greet us, and had the feeling that we had known them all of our lives. The house was perfect for our needs. Felt very comfortable for the entire stay. The location couldn't have been better. Highly recommend it, and will definitely be back again! 5 Stars!!!!!

A proposito dell'host, Peter & Robin
Peter was born in Montreal and I hail from Halifax, but we've lived in Vancouver for the past 25 years and raised our 3 sons here. We love travellers - perhaps because we've both lived overseas growing up. Peter is a software engineer and I am a counsellor. I think you will find us relaxed and easygoing, and our beautiful 100 year old home very comfortable.
