About Toni

Originally from Scotland, our family immigrated in the 70s. I've lived in several New Zealand, France and several Canadian locations and in Vancouver from the mid 80s.

Toni purchased this house in 2001

Why Toni chose East Side

The views from the house and the neighbourhood are stunning. Watching the sun light up the mountains in the morning or going down in the Northwest late on a summer evening never gets old.

What makes this house unique

I love that we can wander down to the end of our street to play tennis or enjoy the park, we can take lovely walks around the neighbourhood and parks. It is also terrific to be able to get to so many places in a 10 or 20 minute drive!

Myrtle Suite

  • 5 of 5

Toni was a wonderful hostess. The unit is modern and updated with and open feel to the living space. The location is close to bus lines to downtown with maps of the bus lines ready for your review in the home. The bathroom and amenities was fantastic - heated floors and great tub. The kitchen was nicely stocked with spices, tea and anything you’d need for cooking. The outdoor BBQ we used was in a beautiful garden area.

Finally, the extra touch was fresh flowers in the suite to give you the personal touch.

Super clean, cozy, quiet and friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We so appreciated this lovely suite. The owners were extremely pleasant and accommodating, the suite was charming and spotless, and the location was perfect for access to all of the main arteries to anywhere you need to get to. Easy parking, a perfectly quiet sleep, and a kitchen with "home-quality" just rounded out the package! We have occasion to stay in Vancouver very frequently, and have tried every hotel imaginable, as well as a number of other rentals. This is by far the most well rounded, good deal we have found! Thank you so much Bob and Toni.

Myrtle Suite...quaint and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation stay. Toni was very kind and even offered to pick me up from the market so that I wouldn't have to walk back in the rain. The kitchen was stocked with basic necessities (loved the Italian coffee), and the apartment was neat, clean and cozy. On a couple of rainy days I just curled up with a book to relax and take in my surroundings. The bed in the suite gave me the best rest....the mattress and pillows were very comfortable; the neighborhood is charming and having close access to transit (bus) and only a fifteen minute walk to restaurants and markets made my daily outings convenient. It was the getaway that I needed and would definitely stay again. Thank you Toni :-)

Beautiful one bedroom close to parks and harbour in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

Everything met or exceeded our expectations and the property delivers exactly what is promised.

Toni and Bob ensured that our needs were completely taken care of.

The property is easily accessed by rental car from the airport and has it's own spot for parking. It is located in a nice area of town and scenic walks can be had in any direction.

We toured the lower mainland extensively and this was an excellent base!

You won't be disappointed!

Stay in a community of tree-lined streets, parks and ocean view walks, walking distance to 'East Village' shopping. Central to historic Gastown, Chinatown, Yaletown, Stanley Park, Granville Island. Enjoy hikes in Lynn Valley, Deep Cove, Bunsen Lake, Capilano Valley. Ski Grouse, Seymour or Cypress. Rent bicycles downtown for a great day trip along bike paths – stop at Science World, beaches of Kitsilano, English Bay and Stanley Park, stroll around the markets and artisan studios of Granville Island (checkout the Kids Market - it's indoor arcade and the nearby waterpark), restaurants and shops, the famous Vancouver Aquarium and more. A car is great in and around Vancouver, but you can see a lot with public transit too!
