We liked the apartment: it was close to public transport, shopping facilities, and the pool on the ground floor was awesome for us and the kids. Richmond is a good place to start exploring greater Vancouver area. Melissa responded timely, was always friendly, and extremely helpful. Thanks a lot! The only minor improvement potential relates to the kitchen: the amount of flatware, pans, pots etc. is very limited. For 1-2 people ok, with >2 you need to run the dishwasher in between meals.
My family and I stayed in this apartment for six days. It's in the heart of Richmond. Everything you could need is within walking distance. A major mall and public transit is a block away. A few more blocks away is a large community center with an aquatic center and ice rinks. The apartment is high in a secure apartment building with a great view. It was very clean and tidy, efficient, with a balcony. The kitchen had everything we needed. The master bed was very comfortable. So was the bathroom. My 9-year old loved sleeping in the little bedroom, it was very cozy. We were happy to have a washer-dryer in the unit too. In the building is a fantastic pool and hot tub. It also has a very nice work out room, although we didn't use the work out room. The parking is in a secure garage. Our host, Melissa, was gracious and helpful.
