"Small beautiful 1 bedroom apartment"
Left on 06/20/2015 for a stay in June 2015
10 mins drive from YVR. 30 mins from most destination in downtown Vancouver.
Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 young children) found the apartment a lovely and memorable place to stay during our 10-day vacation in Vancouver.
Jane and Jason were very helpful, yet they respect our privacy.
Highly recommended for family vacation.
"Wonderful suite in a great location!!"
Left on 07/16/2015 for a stay in July 2015
At the price point of $159/night I was not expecting much, were we ever pleasantly surprised. The suite was beautiful, nicely decorated and extremely clean. We were met within minutes of contacting the rental agent upon our arrival. Amelia was a pleasure to deal with, she was efficient and thorough with our check in. The welcome basket of fruit, chocolates, chips, coffee etc, was a nice touch and a welcome surprise. Although I had requested parking with my reservation, it was missed in the calculation of my payment. Amelia did not hesitate to give me a parking pass and said she would work it out with the office. The office emailed me the following day to advise that they would waive the parking cost for me, a gesture that was not expected but very much appreciated. The building is located in a wonderful location for walking to Robson Street, Granville Street and Yaletown. The building security provided us with an added sense of well being. I have already recommended this unit to a number of friends and will definitely book here again. So much better than a hotel!!
"Perfect place to stay for those who love a lovely private apartment and park to walk in across the s"
Left on 06/08/2015 for a stay in May 2015
We loved staying here...and I mean loved it. This garden suite actually has a little garden to sit in facing a lovely park... a real park with a small lake and ducks and even a beach!!! Right in Vancouver! 5 mins from the LRT station on Commercial. 2 min walk from the number 20 bus! Very convenient. It comes fully equipped, it's all beautiful. We even stayed here at Christmas this year.
Any couple would love this spot if they like a roomy suite with a great kitchen. And another big plus... the two owners. They are so very lovely. Thoughtfull gifts appeared on our door handle...fresh strawberries, chocolates....and they are so lovely to visit with.
From now on we'll only stay here when visiting Vancouver.
"Our best vacation home in Vancouver."

This condo is well equipped, clean and exceeds our expectation. Jane Zhao is friendly and yet very professional to deal with. T & T Super market is on the main floor and works out quite convenient for us. The only issue we have is the underground parking stall which is quite tight for our vehicle. We will definitely try this condo again for our next visit, in a compact size vehicle.
Pristine wilderness and cosmopolitan pleasures are united in the beautiful coastal city of Vancouver. A gateway to the Canadian Rockies, Vancouver has some of the best winter sports opportunities in the world. If you like to downhill ski or snowboard, the famous mountain at Whistler is one of the world's most popular winter destinations, as well as one of the city's top attractions.
If you've already made your winter plans, Vancouver is also a wonderful place to visit in the summer. A coastal city, Vancouver is just a stone's throw from beautiful sand beaches along Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. The unspoiled coastline is an ideal place for an eco-adventure, especially by kayak. Alternately, you could plan a day hike in the neighboring mountains to swim in one of the many clear mountain lakes.
The third largest city in Canada, Vancouver offers urban excitement in addition to beautiful wilderness and outdoor sports. There is a growing art scene, with many fine art galleries in Vancouver's downtown district, as well as in the surrounding communities of Victoria and Wells. Vancouver is also a food-lover's paradise. Here, you can feast on wonderfully fresh seafood every day of the week. Accompany your meal with a local beer or hearty glass of red wine produced by the local breweries and wineries of Southern British Columbia. On the weekends, be sure to check out one of Vancouver's charming farmer's markets, where you can pick up local products like honey, jams, local cheese, and fresh produce.
Here are some of the best things to do in Vancouver:
- Vancouver Art Gallery: One of the largest museums in Canada, this gallery's permanent collection includes work by Chagall, as well as important regional artists, like Emily Carr.
- Stanley Park: A unique 100-acre park bordered by the seawall promenade, this public space is a scenic place to stroll, bike, or rollerblade alongside locals.
- Whistler: Whistler Mountain was the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics. For skiers and snowboarders, it is one of the best winter resorts in North America.
- Museum of Anthropology: This fascinating museum contains art and artifacts from Vancouver's native cultures, including impressive carved totem poles.
- Gulf Islands: Located just between Vancouver and the mainland, this small island chain is a wonderful place to go sailing, fishing, and hiking.
- Public Market: Enjoy the range of delicious delicacies at this local food market, located in a former industrial space on Granville Island.
If you are planning to visit Vancouver, consider a vacation rental on Kitsilano Point, where you will be near the beach, as well as the attractions in downtown Vancouver. Snagging a rental by Little Fort Langley will put you right in the middle of Vancouver's most historic districts while a ski cabin in Yaletown is ideal for those looking to hit the slopes. For the whole family, a villa near Whistler will guarantee a good time, any season of the year.
