Lovely stay! You will share a Flat with some other Airbnb guest what is actually pretty cool. There is a cozy Living room and a big kitchen as well. Our private room had a big cozy bad and nice furniture. We really enjoyed our stay at Pirike place and can recommend it :-)
It's ok for the price.
Pirike's house was affordable, convenient, and comfy to stay at. The location is just 3 minutes away from the skytrain. However, at times rules and reminders were overbearing but were followed to maintain a clean shared space. We stayed in the upper floor and shared the washroom …

If we provided provisions for cooking the price of the room would also reflect that. In our experience low price is more important. :) The main spices needed for simple cooking are there.... Not everyone experiences repeated reminders :) The house-rules, and the explanation at check is enough. Even with those 'overbearing' reminders you guys still left your bio garbage in the kitchen and failed to put away your dishes. Which I get the complaint for, from other guest. The washroom was shared with 4 other people - its more often 3. They have been here for some time & are never longer than 10-15 minutes at a time. The 5th person you counted, has his own - an ensuite. It would be possible to provide a daily clean up after each guest... double the price of the room & double the cleaning fee. Instead, we offer significant savings at a great location, in clean, safe multi million dollar home - Savings, which more than likely played a large role for you in booking one of our listing. We are upfront with the house rules, which you had a chance to decline, but accepted. So... YES, you are expected to do it. It's insignificant in effort, huge in respect of other guests & the host. Another important part to remember is confirmation of arrival. If check in is after 3:00 pm it's never a good idea to surprise the host in the morning. Confirmation means that a host signals back and time is agreed on. :)
I would like to thank Pirike. She's a nice and friendly hostess who gave me everything I need to enjoy my stay. I would definitely come back! The room was clean and her house is near the 29th avenue skytrain station (3 mins walk). There are rules you need to respect and everythin…
We stayed at this Airbnb for a total of one month. The location is quite good, very close to the skytrain station and the house is very clean. However, I would not recommend it unless you are looking for a short-term stay in a quiet place. The owner has many rules and reminds you…

We have been hosting for 10 years. This is the first year we don't have our 'housemother' on the upper floor to oversee and to nip in the bud the potential of unruly behaviour. Most people due well given space and freedom and do not conveniently forget that they are guests in someone's HOME & follow the house rules they accepted when booked and greatful! Behaving in a passive aggressive manner, assuming to take the helms, disregard how the home is run, without any understanding of the full scope of the operation of the household to suit your own needs is how you conducted yourself! The simple, no effort house rules are set for everyone's comfort along with a myriad of other reasons for their importance in our two level, 8 bedrooms home. They are in no shape or form, up for debate by guests who are staying for a few weeks. The heedless behavior displayed by a few people along with yourself, without a direct presence of a host is a new encounter, which won't be tolerated. Laura, What makes you assume you know enough to change our house rules!? What company's director would take attitude or direction from a new casual employee?? We love people of all walks of life, there is a limit to what is tolerable in ones home from a guest. 1. Laura, If this place was so bad why on earth would you extend your stay for another two weeks? In fact, you had so much fun, on the day of your departure, I found you cooking and needed to be reminded that checkout was several hours ago and the new guest is on her way! 2. You failed to comply willfully and repeatedly, hence needed to be reminded over and over, yet you passive aggressive behavior remained. You're loud, incessant, often alcohol-fueled laughing woke us many times well after 11 pm and sometimes after midnight! I could not be more relieved that's over with your departure. 3. Cooking has been actually extended from the previous finish by 7 pm to 8 pm. This was ignored, had to remind repeatedly to stop cooking late night and the loud gathering well after 10 pm! We explained in detail repeatedly that this is disturbing for the bedrooms right below and the went also carry the noise. As with all other reminders, this was too ignored. Also, You were home all day, had plenty of time cook your meals for yourself and your partner well before 8 pm! 4. Regarding the toilet seat; there was another lady using the washroom beside you, and the two gentlemen left the seat up all the time. As usual, the verbal instruction did not help, so a reminder for the gentleman to 'please put the seat DOWN' had to be written. 5. The ONLY people who were staying a month or longer occupied the upstairs. Indeed long term guests are expected to take out their trash. Each guest agreed to clean up after self. Not a biggie for any previous guests... Sharing simple tasks such as, taking out the garbage, sweep the floor after meal prep, wipe up what you spill is a few minute effort, which becomes a once a week task as shared among 5 users. Recycling info is posted on a wall, very simple, easy to follow direction according to our city bylaw. The containers are conveniently located in the front of the house, easy and effortless to take out on ones way out in the morning. Maintaining a level of cleanliness and to keep the home safe from bugs, rodents, and unwanted odors is a must with a home with 8 bedrooms and many people. This only possible with guests co-operation who are mature and respectful! The grandson was sick 1 night but was asleep by 9 every evening when he was here. He is well behaved quiet, good boy. That's nothing compared to the many nights we have been woken up by your alcohol-fueled loud talking and nonstop high pitched laughing! During your stay, you felt self-entitled to bend the house rules to your own wants, refused to comply with repeated request to follow them, to the point where the owner along with guests in the 4 other rooms on the main floor practically lost the enjoyment of our home. It is fairly unlikely, but people behaving like you will be asked to find another place to stay.
We love to travel, good books, gardening and walking in Vancouver, especially sunny days! Welcome people of the world in our home while discovering Vancouver.
