Our stay with Cam was the quintessential airbnb experience. His warmth, local knowledge and helpfulness was matched by the attention to detail and comfort of the apartment. The neighbourhood is clean, safe and welcoming. It's also great with kids. All in all I couldn't recommend more highly!
Cam was a fantastic host! He felt us made feel welcome from the get go - really enjoyed his personalised guide of things to do Vancouver. The space is perfect, absolutely loved the design - the beds were very comfortable. Location was also great as most sites were walking distance or close to public transport. Definitely will be staying again.
This apartment was perfect for us - the beds were very comfortable and we were supplied with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The space was well laid out, so I could enjoy a morning tea without waking the kids in the bedroom. The apartment is located in the Strathcona neighbourhood, which is easy walking distance to Chinatown and to downtown for a more ambitious walker. There's a great park across the street for little ones to burn off some energy. The host met us on arrival and was very helpful both before and after our stay. Overall, a great experience.
Cam's place is great and exactly as shown in the pictures. The neighborhood is lovely. Would recommend the Chinatown inspired café across the park. Cam really goes the extra mile to make your stay as great as possible. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks Cam!
Cam and his family were great hosts! We were met with a warm welcome and great tips for while we were staying in Vancouver. Our flight was delayed and we were worried this would make check in difficult, but Cam kept in communication with us and made the process extremely simple! The property is very cozy (tall people be warned!) but has all you will need for a pleasant and comfortable stay. Cam was even nice enough to drive us to the car rental place to give us a head start on the next part of our adventure. Thank you for a wonderful stay and I look forward to seeing you in Australia when you visit!
It was perfect . Cam and his family are very friendly and provided many information and hints for us. The apartment is really nice and cosy , very clean and very suitable.
Strathcona is a very good and pleasant quarter and it takes only 15 minutes walking to nice locations like gastown or downtown Vancouver . We absolutely can recommend Cam's location . Thank you very much !
Good location. Family very friendly. Had everything we needed. Bit small for three adults.

About the Host, Cam
Bonjour, Hello, I’m Cam.
A passionate traveller and entrepreneur, I’m originally from France and now living in Vancouver, Canada with my wife and two beautiful daughters.
I enjoy meeting new people and exploring new cultures. I’ve been to Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia, Spain, Italy, Greece, Belgium, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, UK, Holland, Switzerland, Caraibian, Hong Kong, Australia, USA, Mexico…and there’s more on the bucket list.
I’m happiest when I’m outside; swimming, running, hiking, wakeboarding and snowboarding. I’m also a big fan of design and architecture.
I was one of the earliest members of AirBnB (2009) and the first person to rent a house-boat ☺
