“Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

This review is long overdue! I see Mim's Place has not been short of visitors, so this should only add to the interest... My husband booked Mim's Place after a LOT of research. I mean, A LOT! The condo did not disappoint.

The condo itself was wonderfully appointed. Very modern, which felt like a real treat. The shower was amazing, and I still think about those bed pillows! Supplies are around, from things Mim leaves to items other travelers have left behind. Also available are maps from places of interest, as well as a binder full of helpful tips (including a card for the local grocery store - for discounts!) and reviews from previous guests. The washer and dryer were wonderfully handy. My husband and I spent a week, and only packed carry-ons! The condo was also extremely clean and well-kept. That it's clean isn't shocking, but considering it's a rental, one might expect more wear and tear, but it's not there. I think it just goes to show the respect visitors have for the space, and for Mim & Paul.

The only negative thing, and it's not truly a negative but rather a unfortunate understanding, was "checking in." Our instructions said to call when we arrived onsite. We called and called, but there was no answer. As it turns out, Mim & Paul were in the condo the whole time. We were supposed to call the condo, not their home. The instructions weren't clear to that affect, but no harm, no foul. We were a little frustrated, as were they, but it all worked out in the end.

If we ever find ourselves heading that way again, we'd stay, without a doubt. We'd highly recommend Mim's Place to anyone who wants all the creature comforts of home! I can't imagine staying anywhere else for our anniversary vacation!

It gives us a great deal of pleasure to have satisfied guests. One of my career moves was into hotel sales for a number of years, and I recognized that the most important key to return business was a spotless, well-appointed room. We have been most fortunate to have guests like yourselves who respect the space and leave it "used" but not "abused". Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

“Great Value, Great Position, Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 for a stay in October 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We found Mim to be really helpful and equally accommodating. The property was very clean, very well maintained and really well stocked with everything you need with a home from home. Several great restaurants and pubs within the creek and the whole area is extremely safe. Supermarkets, liquor store, drug stores all really in close proximity. The HVAC system is really good and normalised temperatures with ease.

Mim also made sure that there were starter quantities of basic ingredients available for tea coffee and cooking which made it so easy to settle in.

I would have no hesitation of recommending Mim's Place to any business or vacation persons visiting Vancouver. A truly memorable Stay! Thank you Mim!

Liked best: The central location as well as the facilities included
Liked least: The condo is more fairly marketed as a 2 sleeper and place for a toddler as only a thin foam mattress made up the 3rd sleeper. The inclusion of a sleeper couch for example could rectify things. Could be a problem for those needing 3 full sleepers.

“Spotless, modern apartment in contemporary, friendly setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Vancouver is one of the world's great cities and Mim's Place is superbly sited, not in the centre but - even better - by the banks of False Creek. Among a couple of fresh modern condo' blocks characterised / occupied by friendly people (aren't all Canadians?), a lively atmosphere (thanks to some good shops, plus that cop-drama being filmed while we were there) and some very walkable access routes (either via the bridge to BC Place, regular waterfront ferries, or SkyTrain) - all straight into the city centre beyond. Thanks both to its owners and its newness, this apartment is quiet, spotlessly kept, and all its facilities are excellent, with every possibility thought of - owners kindly even letting us in 1 day early when we arrived from Rockies 1 day ditto. The atmosphere is laid back, ambience cool, and we'd go back tomorrow - even buy one (if could afford it / stand the 9 hour flights). No better way to see Vancouver, or live in a city. Excellent, and our thanks again to Mim & Paul!

“modern conviences .... great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Mim and her husband made our stay very nice. You can tell that they really take care of their place and want to know what type of people are there. They met us there and went through everything. The condo is very modern and comfortable. Mim even helped us find a kinko's to do some computer work on. Our vacation to Seattle, Victoria, and Vancouver turned out to be more enjoyable than we had even planned. We would love to come back again.

“Wonderful Condo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I stayed with my family of 3 for 4 nites. The owners were very helpful and kind, and supplied us with a beautiful home for our stay. You can walk out the door to dining, coffee shop and drug store. Additionally, you are steps away from the False Creek perimeter running and walking trail. This is a safe location with great access to all activities in Vancouver. Many thanks to the owners!

“Wonderful place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

We stayed in this beautifully appointed condo apartment over the Christmas holidays. It is very conveniently located, close to all transportation, and right at False Creek.
Fantastic kitchen! I was able to prepare a Christmas Eve dinner here.
Very friendly owners who are genuinely interested in making sure you have a pleasant stay.
Will definitely return!
