Lovely area and great hosts
beautiful spring break in vancouver
This suite is on a nice street lined with cherry trees which were in blossom when we arrived. It is situated across from Trout Lake recreation area and community centre. It is a nice place to walk around. We did not use the facility but it is easily available with lots of different activities, especially for children. We were a 15 minute walk from a grocery store and from Commercial Drive where there are many fabulous restaurants. The owners were very accommodating and provided information on suggested restaurants and activities. While we were there we had a few rainy days (after all this is in Vancouver!) and found the gas fireplace helped to warm us up.
the suite was clean and the owners provided coffee, tea, sugar, olive oil. We had all of the dishes and pans that we needed for breakfasts and lunches. We ate out for dinner at the numerous fabulous restaurants that Vancouver offers.
During our stay we played golf at Burnaby Mountain which was a short drive. We took transit to the Vancouver Art Gallery, buying our ticket at the Commercial Drive station a short walk from the suite. We drove to the Vancouver Aquarium and to the Van Dusen botanical gardens.
Close to all attractions
We had wonderful time staying in trout lake suite. The location is in proximity to everything you can think of doing while in Vancouver. Also close to groceries and restaurants. Jen and Jean gave us some travel tips that was very helpful.Property is little old but well equipped, has everything in case you need to cook. Kids had a great time watching TV, playing with puzzles and reading books when we were not out exploring.
Central location right on beautiful Trout Lake park. Quiet suite, with all the amenities you'll need. Jennifer was very responsive and inviting as a host.
Lovely suite in great location
A fantastic location and a very cosy and comfortable apt with everything you need. Jen and Jean were very helpful and welcoming . Would definitely stay here again
The property was very easy to find following the directions. It was very clean and very well appointed providing everything that might be needed on a holiday. Jen was extremely helpful and friendly and provided excellent suggestions about where to visit. The location was superb within a short walk through the adjacent park to a large Safeway supermarket which is next to a Skytrain station which is just part of the excellent integrated transport system in Vancouver.. John Hendry Park which is literally just across the road is great and has a cafe, ice-rink, children’s playground and a Superb Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. It also has Trout Lake which makes for a very pleasant walk around it’s perimeter (and has coyotes living there, although they are nocturnal animals so we didn’t see them!)
If we are lucky enough to return to Vancouver, this would be our first choice of places to stay. From start to finish, it was terrific.
The suite is very close to John Hendry Park ('Trout Lake'), a beautiful 80-hectare park with a walking path around the lake, a cycling path around lake, an off-leash dog park, picnic and barbecue areas, a brand new high-end kids playground, baseball diamonds, soccer fields, tennis courts, a beach area, and beautiful mountain and wildlife views.
The park also features a community centre with a full commercial-grade gym that is open to the public, as well as fitness classes, dance classes, art classes and more. (And for many classes, drop-ins are welcome.)
The suite is located very close to shops and cafes of Commercial Drive, named one of the hippest neighbourhoods in North America, and offers easy access to all other areas of the city, from North Shore mountains (Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge, etc.) to Granville Island to downtown galleries, museums, theatres and more.
Our guests always comment on how much they love the location!
