Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was superb. Highly recommended.The beds were very comfortable. There was no noise. It was clean, warm, light and very spacious. The new wooden floors were beautiful. We enjoyed both the covered verandah at the back, and the large window at the front with its lovely view of trees.The neighbourhood was wonderful; a friendly area with very pretty houses. We didn't have a car and found the buses were great. There are several bus routes in close walking distance. Lovely to be near the beach.Derek was a superb host. He graciously obliged me in all my special requests, which made our travelling in Canada much easier. All communications before and during the stay were answered promptly and professionally. Thanks, Derek, for making our stay so good!

A great place to stay in Vancouver

  • 4 of 5

This is a really comfortable suite, well equipped to make for an easy stay. It has a very nice outside deck. There is good shopping and good restaurants within walking distance. Kitsilano farmers market is wonderful and close by. There are very convenient bus stops nearby that make it easy to get around. It is a really good place to see Vancouver from.

All of the little extras show the owners really care

  • 5 of 5

My family ( two adults and a 13 year old boy) stayed in this lovely rental during March 2017. We were pleasantly surprised at how well equipped it was. The bed and bedding was so comfortable. The towels were good quality. They had seasoning and ample pans and bakeware for cooking. Plenty of plates, cups and mugs. Tea was left for guests as well as plenty of toilet paper, laundry items and many other small goodies such as travel guides, books, and games. Going to Stanley Park? They have folding chairs to take with you. Bored during severe rain? We played their board games on some very rainy days! Check in and check out was easy. We had a car for part of the time and parked easily on the street. We used public transit the rest of the time, and it was so easy and fast to get anywhere from this location! Shopping, restaurants, cafes and anything you need is a short walk away. This was a wonderful stay. We definitely recommend it!

Well equipped apartment in great Vancouver location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well equipped, comfortable apartment. Clean and spacious, both bedrooms are equally big and attractive , which in my experience is unusual. Both have lots of storage space and one also leads out onto a generous outside seating area. The TV package in the living room is comprehensive and we were especially pleased to be able to record US Open Tennis programmes while we were out during the day! The kitchen was generously supplied with tea and coffee and had all the equipment needed to self cater.

We loved the area - comfortable and safe, but also buzzing with interesting cafes and restaurants nearby. Food shopping was easy too - a 5-minute walk to Safeway. Only a 20-minute walk to the amazing 150-metre outdoor swimming pool and Kitsilano Beach beyond, the area is also well served by a variety of buses that take you downtown in 15-20 minutes. We were able to park our car just outside the house.

Vancouver is a great place to visit. So much to do and see - we enjoyed cycling in Stanley Park, the Anthropology Museum & Botanical Gardens (an easy drive from the house), the Art Gallery and sightseeing around the Waterfront and Gas Town. If you are interested in massage, there are many opportunities at very reasonable prices (by London standards!) near to the apartment. I chose Royal Feet for accupressure massage and reflexology treatments - both excellent.

Derek was very quick to respond to all communications. He and his family live downstairs. On our arrival day he phoned to welcome us and check we had all we needed. He also advised us how to avoid being ticketed for incorrect parking for which we were grateful.

We have stayed in many apartments/ villas around the world and I honestly feel that for us this was one of the most comfortable and well appointed we have come across. Will definitely be back!

Great property and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Lots of space to spread out in. Two good size bedrooms and a large living area. The kitchen has everything you need. Lots of soap, shampoo and even a new tube of toothpaste in the bathroom. We had no problems with on-street parking, which can be a problem in some areas with either pay machines or Resident Parking Permits. None of the major Vancouver attractions are very far away. The airport and Tssawwassen ferry are also not far.
