I am very sorry not to be able to write a really positive evaluation. Lamar himself is a nice man but the whole house needs very urgently repair and care. My room was in the basement and the whole basement, kitchen, bathroom, tv-room, my and my friend's room were really smelly, musty and damp. Even when you open the cupboards you have to wash the dishes and pots before use because they smell so musty. In the bathroom is mold, the the fittings and the faucet in the tub are not really fastened. Lamar did not clean once in the week I was there. Dust everywhere, in every corner, on the ceilings, junk cardboards standing in the corners, the house outside needs repair, the deck construction almost rotten, one garden chair definitely broken was put to the table again every time I put it aside to prevent accidents.
It could be a nice accomodation with a small garden to sit but Lamar definitely has to furbish up the establishment, especially for that price.
Apart from that typical North American suburban neighborhood, close to the airport and easy to reach for the city. Parking lots in front of the house at the street always available.
I can only report positive about Lamar and about my stay with him. Lamar is one of the nicest people I got to know and the house was very clean. It is very quiet, so you get a good nights sleep when you're done by the day. The bus connection could not be better, it is within 20 minutes to Downtown and nearby there are plenty of stores that can be reached on foot. For each of the like nice people and learns to his rest in the evening there kan I can only recommend this place. Furthermore Lamar has many useful tips and is an aside if you do not know what to do or how to get out somewhere.
Should I again be in Vancouver I will definitely come again.
Ich kann nur positives über Lamar und über meinen Aufenthalt bei ihm berichten. Lamar ist einer der nettesten Menschen die ich kennen lernen durfte und das Haus war sehr sauber. Es ist sehr ruhig gelegen, daher bekommt man einen guten Schlaf wenn man vom Tag geschafft ist. Die Busanbindung könnte nicht besser sein, man ist binnen 20 Minuten in Downtown und auch in der Nähe gibt es genug Läden die man zu Fuß erreichen kann. Für jeden der gern nette Leute kennen lernt und auf seine Ruhe am Abend besteht kan ich diesen Ort nur empfehlen. Desweiteren hat Lamar viele nützliche Tipps und steht einem zur Seite wenn man nicht weiss was man machen soll oder wie man irgendwo hin kommt.
Sollte ich mal wieder in Vancouver sein werde ich defintiv wieder kommen.

Very friendly and helpful host.
Good location (about 7 km to Downtown) and very good bus connections in all directions.
We were 2 male guests from Germany and for about 3 weeks in this Unterkunft.Wir would at any time like to come back, because you simply probably can here feel.
Sehr freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber.
Gute Lage(ca.7 km bis nach Downtown) und sehr gute Busanbindungen in sämtliche Richtungen.
Wir waren 2 männliche Gäste aus Deutschland und für etwa 3Wochen in dieser Unterkunft.Wir würden jederzeit gerne wieder kommen,da man sich hier einfach wohl fühl kann.
Friendly host and I enjoyed a nice room and shared the kitchen and nice bathroom with two other guests. The kitchen is somewhat outdated. But the stay was very pleasant wth quiet guest in a quiet location and close to the bus which brings you in 10 minutes downtown.
