I was unable to meet and spend time with Peter and Robin because they were having a vacation of their own but their niece, Orissa, was great for a contact person. The room is clean and quiet. Their home is well-situated to explore the diverse Commercial Drive or for a pleasant neighborhood walk.
Clean, quiet, friendly people, good value, good neighborhood, near public bus/train.
Dear Robin & Peter,
thank you for such an amazing three week's trip in your lovely house! I and Adrian felt very comfortable and loved your friendly and positive character. I recommend this offer to everyone, who is searching for a special home with family atmosphere, great location and unforgettable experiences. We love Vancouver and it was pleasure to meet you!
This was what a true Air B&B experience should be. Friendly hosts, great living space, lovely garden, and great proximity to all of vancouvers sites. Peter, Robin, and their son, Ian, were so kind and helpful during our week's stay. I would highly recommend staying here. Their location is ideal. The house is right off "the drive", which had some great little restaurants, my favorite being "Wishes and Luck". The skyline is just a short walk and makes it so easy to get to Canada place, downtown vancouver, as well as, the airport. I highly recommend staying here. No complaints!
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.

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.
