People say the nicest things…

Thank you for the help in finding the right place for us! Cecilia and Heather were really friendly and helpful with quick response. I would recommend this site to everyone.

- Jelena, Germany - August 14, 2017

Makeyourselfathome.com is by far the easiest, nicest and most efficient company I have ever dealt with in the rental area. The people are great communicating with you, from beginning to end and the experience was extremely enjoyable. I would only use them if I was booking anything in Vancouver.

- Liz, Philadelphia - August 07, 2017

I have rented twice through Make Yourself at Home, both times for 4 months. Each time the suite has been very nice, the landlord quick to fix the few issues I had including changing tv packages and the rents fair. I will rent from Make Yourself at Home again. Highly recommended.

- G.A. Reed, Saudi Arabia - July 29, 2017

We had a very good experience with Make yourself at Home. They were very professional and reliable. I highly recommend them and will definitely use them again. Thank you, Kelley A.

- Kelley A , Saskatoon, Sk - July 20, 2017

We booked two times through makeyourselfathome for short stays in Vancouver. Very professional team having plenty number of furnished availabilities with reasonable prices that you can't find on other websites especially during high seasons. Completely satisfied and highly recommended.

- Reza, Iran - July 10, 2017

We had a very good experience with Make Yourself At Home. They were quite efficient in providing information and arranging visits for viewing the suites. The booking process was also easy, fast and straightforward and we had a nice stay at the suite that we rented.

- Yolanda , Barcelona (Spain) - May 18, 2017

- Laval , PEI - May 06, 2017

Make yourself at home is a great site. The booking agents were kind and helpful and it was easy and hassle free to secure a place that suited me.

- Devon, Victoria - April 15, 2017

Thought the correspondence between us and you was very good. Nice to see the service you provide because it makes renting a reputable place possible. It keeps everyone honest. We like the fact that we can voice any complaints we have. We trust that anyone getting too much negative feedback faces a chance of being eliminated from the list of rentable properties. Thank you.

- Susan and Bob P., Winnipeg, Manitoba - April 03, 2017

As a home owner, I have been dealing with Make Yourself at Home for over six years. The services that they have provided over that time have been absolutely fantastic. Put simply, were it not for MYAH, I would have long given up renting out my suite a long time ago. I do acknowledge that there are many avenues for home owners to rent out their suites. In addition to AirBNB, there are also vacation rental sites and of course there is also Craigslist. The one difference between MYAH and these other sites is the personal care they take to ensure a perfect fit between the guest and the rental property. As a careful background check is done for each rental, I have the comfort of knowing that each tenant will leave my suite in good condition. I would far rather pay the fees for such a service than having the uncertainty of not knowing who I am dealing with through a Craigslist inquiry.

- Colin- MYAH Owner, Vancouver - March 07, 2017

Cecilia and the rest of the Make Yourself At Home Team are the best at helping people find accomodation in Vancouver. All the places I have stayed with them have been great and at good prices. I will use them again and recommend them.

- Fred R, Canada - January 03, 2017

This is the third year we have used your service to find a rental property for the summer months in Vancouver.

- Audrey, Canada - December 04, 2016

- Jiri, Czech Republic - November 04, 2016

I give a 5 on five for the excellent service received. It was easy fast and the booking agents that contacted me were very nice and helpful. For sure I recommend this service.

- Danielle Thibault, Montreal - October 02, 2016

The service is excellent and the staff so efficient, helpful and friendly. I will continue to use MYAH for future stays in Vancouver.

- Keith Foster, UK - September 21, 2016

My partner and I were visiting Vancouver for a week and enjoyed it so much we decided to book a month in Kitsilano. The booking process was simple, smooth and easy. All of our questions were answered promptly and concisely. The unit was immaculate and well appointed. The bookshelf had pamphlets and maps with information about all the events that we had to experience city and surrounding areas. We had a great time and would book again!

- Anthony, Ottawa Ontario - August 13, 2016

I very much enjoyed my stay, and I will not hesitate to use MYAH in the future if I return to Vancouver. Thanks again.

- Charlie B, California - March 22, 2016

Thank you for your assistance in renting out our apartment. Over the past 7 years, we have relied on your company to find tenants for us. We have received excellent customer service from you and the apartment was tenanted without a break, during these 7 years.

- Oliver - MYAH Owner , Vancouver - March 08, 2016

Thank you for the wonderful service you have provided in the past. We have been very happy with MYAH. We are impressed with the timely follow up and communication by MYAH - it gives a sense they are on top of all accommodation requests. We have used MYAH for nearly 10 years and they have always placed good tenants in our condo and must have a good screening process. They have also been helpful with additional advice and information for owners.

- Isabelle, MYAH owner, Vancouver - March 07, 2016

My wife and I were again very pleased with the friendly and courteous service provided by all the staff of Make Yourself at Home with whom we interacted. All our correspondence/emails always received a prompt and personal response, with clear meaning and reliable information. This made us confident that we were securing the most suitable accommodation for our particular needs and so it ultimately proved. Thank you again for your very professional and supportive service that, once again, greatly helped to make our trip to Vancouver a very pleasurable experience.

- Tommy, Ireland - February 16, 2016

Working with the team at Make Yourself at Home was extremely pleasurable. They were very quick to respond to our inquiries and were proactive in identifying properties that would be suitable for our family for the 4-month rental period we were seeking. Moving from one side of the world to the other was certainly made much easier by the assistance that Cecilia and Heather gave us. I would strongly recommend this agency to anyone else considering rental accommodation in Vancouver and would be very happy to seek their assistance again in the future.

- Spencer L, New Zealand - January 21, 2016

I looked at several websites and numerous places in person, in order to find the right furnished accommodation as a transition home. I strongly recommend this choice as the perfect getaway for a short visit or a much longer stay. It will not disappoint!

- Donna, Canada - January 20, 2016

Great service! I felt confident renting through Make Yourself at home. Great experience from beginning to end.

- Mary-Lynne, Toronto Canada - January 06, 2016

Have used this service for the last two years to rent properties in Vancouver for the summer (June to November). We are very happy with the service provided and both properties we rented were more than adequate. We will continue to use this service to rent properties in Vancouver. Staff provided prompt, courteous service for all inquiries made and were very helpful in recommending places we might like within our specified price range. Overall experience with your service is excellent and I have recommended you to many people.

Without hesitation I recommend MYAH to friends and business colleagues for either short term or longer term stays.

Thank you Cecilia, Heather and Allyson for all your kind and patient help. You listened to my needs, understood my doubts, advised without insisting on a particular solution and led to the finding of a suitable accommodation. It was very important for me to have this kind of support in the first days in Canada. You worked long hours every day, answered to my e-mails immediately and got me the information I needed. I'll recommend MYAH for both kindness and efficiency.

- Maria B, Rome Italy - November 13, 2014

We couldn't be happier with our experience with Make Yourself at home, which was seamless. We managed to find a high quality apartment through this service.

- Dayna, Sydney Australia - October 21, 2014

Cecilia from Vancouver office was very pleasant to work with. She helped us to find a place in our target area with very short notice. Would definitely use this agency again for next time.

- Rosa, Vancouver BC - August 11, 2014

The service provided by this website is absolutely fantastic. Sumaiya from the US office was helping us out with our enquiries and nothing was ever too much trouble. We're in the last few weeks of our stay in Vancouver and we've loved it. We're making our way across Canada and wish this website covered all of Canada's major cities! :)

- Emma & Luke, Sydney Australia - May 06, 2014

Thanks to Make Yourself at Home we found a very nice little suite (#510) to stay in while in Vancouver for a month. It was easy to rent and all transactions went very smoothly. The suite was comfortable and in a terrific location, close to parks and to Main Street. It had all the facilities we needed, the owners are very friendly and helpful, and even the neighbours made us feel welcome. Our dog enjoyed the backyard and all the great walks in the neighbourhood.

- Tim P, London Ontario - April 03, 2014

I rented from MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME in December and have been thoroughly satisfied with all the services provided, both by the office staff (prompt replies and easy communication) and from the apartment owner of no.123 (Kitsilano 10th and Arbutus). This apartment is indeed fully equipped and in a very convenient location, within easy walking distance to many sights and shopping areas, on good transit routes both from the airport and to/from downtown. It was the perfect re-location choice!

- J Summer, Italy - March 28, 2014

I have been using MYAH for approximately 3 years and it has been a wonderful experience. They screen their potential renters, unlike Craigs List or Air B&B, and in so doing ensure that I receive only high caliber people. I literally, yesterday, received a large thank you package from a family who rented for a week in August. In short they are brilliant, they ALWAYS go beyond the 'call of duty' and have ensured that I have wonderful renters. All details are taken care of and the process is seamless. On a personal note, Wendy and Sumaiya feel like friends. I highly recommend MYAH to all, because I know you will have the BEST time.

- Lyn B, Vancouver BC - November 04, 2013

We will almost certainly move, hopefully to another location in the West End, and if can find a place that will alow us to sub-let, please be assured that we will be in touch with you again. But regardless, I do want to thank you for all that you have done for us over the past year. We have been most pleased with all of the many tenants that you have sent us......indeed more than we could accommodate!!! We have also been very impressed with your opertaion, and can and have highly recommend MYAH. Your very fast response to all of our questions was especially appreciated.

- Norman, Vancouver BC - September 22, 2012

We were looking for a house in Kitsilano in Vancouver, Canada for one month. An via Make Yourself At Home we found the perfect place with an equivalent perfect landlord. The house is on Trafalgar Street which is a quiet street in the wonderful aera of Kitsilano. 5-15 minutes to everywhere (forest, beach, shopping street, great food, playground, hospital, downtown) - you name it, it's there. Vancouver itself is an amazing place on earth. If we could, we would stayed for longer. The house fits for 2 to 3 persons. It totally new and very chic inside. You feel like home from the first moment. All equipment you'll need inside and of high quality. Most of the people passing the house stop for a moment because the garden is so full of flowers and plants. If you miss anything, the neighbors and landlords help you instantly. We really enjoyed our month in Vancouver and hope that we can come back some time.

- Klaus S, Austria - September 01, 2012

We had a great time in Vancouver over the Thanksgiving long weekend. Our suite was perfect. Jean and Jen were great to deal with. The park was right across from the street for our morning stroll and to shop at the Farmer's market on Saturday. We appreciated having all of the apartment space instead of being couped up in a hotel room. We will definetly use this type of accomodation again!

- Bonnie, Saskatoon Canada - October 21, 2011

I deeply appreciate all the time you took to answer my questions. I'm enormously impressed with your service and will definitely recommend it to academic friends and colleagues.

- Wendy M., - August 28, 2011

Hi...just wanted to let you know we had a great time in Vancouver visiting our son and his girlfriend. We stayed at Deanna Wing's suite #251 on your site and if was perfect. Very friendly hosts and quiet clean accommodations , would definitely stay there again or recommend it to my friends.

- Bob and Lorraine D, Port Stanley Ontario - August 21, 2011

I just wanted to let you know that we found an apartment very close to the hospital which was just right for us. I'm sorry we couldn't use your service but wanted to say thank you for your excellent customer care and attention to detail. We will be sure to recommend you to other friends.

- Dr Michael S, Australia - August 17, 2011

I wanted to say thank you for your help during our stay in Vancouver. Your local knowledge and advice was invaluable in finding temporary accommodation for when we first arrived, and a more permanent home over the winter. Your service is very professional and your properties meet very high standards. However what I really appreciated was the care taken to understand individual requirements in matching people to property. We loved our house!

- Angela, London UK - July 15, 2011

I really like to say that I appreciate your services very much. Out of all the emails that I sent out, you have been the most easy to deal with and swift in replying to all my email even on weekend. Thank you

- Thanapon, Singapore - July 15, 2011

Thank you so much for replying. As you can imagine I've been emailing for information to dozens of agencies and I have to tell you that you really are the only one that has provided me with any information (actually I've only had 2 replies) and I'm so grateful for that. You're a true professional. Many many thanks once again.

- David, - July 14, 2011

The MYAH staff are a pleasure to work with!

- Paul, Salt Spring Island Canada - July 13, 2011

I just wanted to drop you a note and say what a fantastic vacation we had, the apartment was perfect and we became firm friends with Pauline and her husband Murray during our stay, they were wonderful.We had such a great time and I can't thank you enough for your services, without which we would have undoubtedly stayed in a downtown hotel and quite a different vacation, which although Vancouver is beautiful and we still would have loved it, we probably wouldn't have had such a great time. So thank you, and wishing you all the best for the future.
