This was a wonderful spot...I almost hesitate sharing how lovely it was for fear that I won't be able to get in the next time I'm in Vancouver!

There's 3 levels in this complex. We came with a large group of friends/family so we were lucky enough to stay in both the Domain Apartment (lower) and Bijou Apartment (main) for 2 nights.

The first thing we said when we opened the doors were WOW. It truly is a very nice apartment. Clean and nicely renovated. Equip with kitchen, lounge, washing machine, dryer, bathroom, wifi/internet, and a flatscreen tv in each room. You can tell the owner has put in quite a bit of effort into the design. Each room had its own particular theme which made the experience quite fun. The beds were comfortable. There is no communal tv in the lounge in the Domain apartment though (Bijou did) but I guess having one in each room instead gives different groups a certain privacy.

Location wise its only a short 5 minute drive to Chinatown and city surrounds. There's a supermarket and a whole strip of restaurants as soon as you step out onto the street for those who have no car so it was very convenient.

Everything was well organised by the owner and we ran into no troubles at all. It was definitely a nice change from staying in hotels all the time.

I am happy that you found my accommodation so attractive and comfortable.

You are correct when you state that I put a great deal of effort into decorating and supplying these three apartments. I have stayed here on many occasions in the process of making decisions as to how to best accommodate my guests.

Thank you for your visit.

Joanne has made three great apartments in this house! All are beautifully decorated and appointed.

The studio is amazingly roomy, good kitchen and hanging out space and has a great outside deck--larger than what you'd expect for a studio.

The middle floor is fantastic--lots of space, fireplace, great kitchen--nice deck off the back on this floor, too. There is a PC and a printer here, too.

he bottom apartment is nice, it is downstairs, so the ceilings are a bit low and can seem a bit dark. But I spent 2 weeks on this floor and it was great...3 good size bedrooms, 2 baths, great living space and okay kitchen space. One bathroom is fairly small but not a huge deal.

All three bedrooms have a TV, but no TV in the central area. Wireless on all three floors, as well as washer dryer in each apartment.

The location is in East Vancouver, a great place in of itself--great restaurants and a grocery store is right across the street--so it's easy to pick up groceries and save some $$! The Starbucks is right around the corner, too, if you need a fix! It is in a busy area, but the house is amazingly quiet.

Joanne is a fantastic host! We stayed here for the Olympics, on business. Any need we had, she was right on it. I had an influx of people in and out of the place for a month and she was so terrific! This was a very flexible arrangement and absolutely met our needs.

I would not hesitate to stay here and hope to in future personal travel. Highly recommend!

Thank you for the very apt description of my accommodation.
I enjoyed meeting you and all of your colleagues.
It was especially so much fun because you visited due to your relationship with the Olympics.
You are welcome to visit any time.
It would be a pleasure to see you again.
