Khemaluck Deeprawat

21 October 2009 Khemaluck would recommend this property

Liked: I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a to stay in a cozy home in the midst of a big city. Janine, the host of this place, is so kind, friendly and helpful. Her flower garden and all the decorations in the room are lovely, too. The location is great, downtown and close to skytrain. The kitchen has everything you need to fix your own breakfast. We have a very comfortable stay and will never forget this place. However, I don't recommend for those who wants to make a loud party at night. This house is for those who want warm, quiet and relaxing atmosphere only. You have to be careful not to make noise after 10 pm.
