Good location. Family very friendly. Had everything we needed. Bit small for three adults.
Cam was an absolutely wonderful host and he was very responsive to all questions before we arrived. He even arranged for one member of our group to drop her luggage off early. He gave great local tips about Vancouver and even let us use his bikes to get around Strathcona. I really could not have asked for a better experience of Vancouver. The apartment looks exactly like the listing. It is on the smaller side, but was very clean and sufficient for what we needed. The neighborhood also gives a more localized feel of Vancouver and it wasn't that difficult to get to downtown at all, either via bus, walking, or taxi ($9). I would definitely recommend Cam's place.
Our stay at cams place was pretty seamless. Cam was a super kind guy, very responsive and helpful when needed. The later check out time was a definite plus, and the located was perfect for our needs. A lovely quiet street with a family feel, and close to accessing downtown, Chinatown, commercial drive. The place itself was really cute - a bit warm during the heatwave we arrived during, but cam had large fans provides which were super helpful. I wouldn't recommend more than 3-4 people staying here as we found it kind of cramped at times. (Unless you're all really close!) that being said, would definitely stay here again under the right circumstances. Thanks cam!
What a wonderful space! We were in Vancouver for a business conference at the convention centre and found this location to be perfectly located a short bus ride and walk from everywhere we needed and wanted to go! Cam was a welcoming host, with wonderful candor and enthusiasm for Vancouver. He had great recommendations (on a custom designed info sheet) that lead to many wonderful moments and adventures throughout the city. We had everything we needed and will be staying with Cam again the next time we are in town!
We had a great time in Cam's place! It was perfect for our stay in Vancouver and Cam is a wonderful and welcoming host. He even included a map of nearby cafes and shops. It's a great area wand easy to get downtown. The apartment had everything we needed (I love airbnbs that include basic spices, oil, coffee etc), and extremely comfortable beds. The space is very efficiently organized. The only thing I would say is the bathroom's slanted ceilings may be a bit low for the very tall (over 6'3"). Overall a wonderful stay and we would come again for sure. Thanks Cam and family!
Cam was an excellent host. He went out of his way to buy us an ironing board when we needed one. The place was quaint and neatly kept. The neighbourhood was nice, walking distance to downtown and restaurants.
It very small for a two bedroom, where you had to crawl into the second bedroom and couldn't stand up. It would be a great place for a couple and kids, but for us, two adults travelling on business it was two small.

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 ☺
