Luxurious 4.5 Star Stately Heritage Residence near Deer Lake
average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

Wonderful stay with our kids.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Haddon House. There were 4 adults and 2 young children, and the place was more than spacious. Marie-Louise and Johannes were great hosts. The house was very well stocked and they provided us with days worth of fresh organic fruit, yogurt, bread, eggs, etc. We would go on our excursions in the mornings (Granville Island, Stanley park, Science Museum and Capilano Suspension bridge were all 30 minutes away in usual traffic). After my younger son's afternoon nap during which my older son would play in the front or back yard, we would walk over to Deer Lake and play in the playground or go paddle boating. The grand parents enjoyed walking along the trail looking for beavers and especially conversing with the hosts. We would come home and enjoy our dinner sitting out on their patio enjoying their well kept garden. It was a perfect place for a family with young children. Thank you.

Owner's Response: We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your vacation so much. We have to admit that our 'pristine grounds' are not due alone to our own efforts but an excellent gardener (he's Dutch - and as you may know, the Dutch seem to have landscaping in their blood!) who tends to our property with pride of workmanship. We do hope we'll see you again at Haddon House some time in the future.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

Hosts Marie-Louise and Johannes welcome guests like family. They live in the lower level of the home so are available if needed. Our family group of 7 immediately felt a kinship with Johannes especially. The home is meticulously well kept - I am unfortunately a little picky! They've thought of everything to make it comfortable and welcoming from the large bowl of chocolates at the front door to providing items for breakfast. The kitchen is very well stocked, the beds are comfortable, the property is quiet and private, located very close to great walking trails. Stayed 5 nights but wish we could've stayed longer. Well done!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Haddon House was even more than expected, if that's possible! Marie-Louise and Johannes were the most gracious hosts. Upon arrival it was clear that they have thought of everything to make the transition from normal daily life in Michigan to a week of Vancouver vacation life as simple as possible. A clean, beautiful home with wonderful owners who had information ready: from everywhere one may need to go in the area to traveling directions to sightseeing attractions, brochures for ideas and even coupons to use if you chose to use them, and basic food staples stocked in the kitchen. The residential area means much welcomed nighttime quietness. A 5 minute walk to Deer Lake and the Burnaby Village Museum (both free of charge) made the location perfect for times when we wanted a break from the city life of Vancouver. Haddon House accommodated all 8 of us, including our 2 young grandchildren, perfectly. We would recommend this home to anyone thinking of visiting Vancouver anytime. Cannot say enough good things about it. Wish we were back there all ready! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer to be able to spend more time with our kind and caring hosts.

Excellent family stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is a treasure and the hosts are excellent. It's a great location. We had rental cars and used it as a home base to explore the area. Morning walks around the nearby lake were great! Of the many vacation properties I've rented, this one is the best I've been at.

Parent's 50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Haddon House in beautiful Burnaby, just a few miles from downtown Vancouver. The house is absolutely beautiful. The yard is breathtaking. The furnishings are perfect in every room. The kitchen is very well equipped, and has everything you'd need to make a gourmet meal. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. We used the Sky Train, which is only a few miles from the house. We had a rental car, as we spent time in Victoria and Whistler, but I don't think a car is absolutely necessary if you'll be staying strictly in the Vancouver area. We were celebrating my parents' fifty year anniversary and we will always remember this trip and this beautiful home. Thank you for your hospitality!
