MYRTLE SUITE - MOUNTAIN VIEW; CENTRAL, LOVELY AREA
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Additional Location Information
Enjoy easy access by car or transit to Vancouver and surrounding area sights and activities.
Myrtle Suite is a short walk to bus routes; near several bike routes. Stroll up to 'East Village' for shopping on eclectic East Hastings Street, featuring restaurants, delis, grocery, bakeries, drug store, banks, community centre and other amenities. This is a vibrant neighbourhood and retains a lovely charm and history in an absolutely spectacular setting!
You are just a 10-minute drive (or 20-minute bus ride) to downtown Vancouver including Gastown, Chinatown, Yaletown, theatres, museums and shopping. The campuses of Simon Fraser, BCIT and Capilano College are all about a 20-minute drive. The Trans Canada Highway #1 is minutes away, taking you to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal with destinations including Vancouver Island, Bowen Island, scenic Gibson's Landing and the Sunshine Coast; or drive a further 60-90 minutes north to the resort village of the Whistler/Blackcomb ski hills and beyond. Drive across the nearby Ironworkers Bridge, and in 20 minutes you can be enjoying our local ski resorts of Grouse, Seymour or Cypress mountains or many hiking and mountain biking trails (check out Capilano Suspension Bridge and park, Lynn Valley Canyon, Deep Cove and the Baden Powell Trail or the challenging Grouse Grind).
Myrtle Suite is in Burrardview, part of Vancouver's Hastings-Sunrise community. With a stunning view of the mountains and Burrard Inlet, 19th century New Westminster residents would flock to the popular recreational destination of New Brighton (as this area was then called). Later the area became part of Hastings Townsite, one of Vancouver's oldest neighbourhoods.
Today Burrardview retains a lot of its historic charm. I love its tree-lined streets, parks and green spaces and ocean views. Burrardview Park is at the end of the block (tennis courts, playground); New Brighton park is 10 minutes' walk (tennis courts, playground, outdoor pool (June-Sep) in a spectacular setting); Hastings Park, just 15 minutes' walk (racecourse, casino, and Playland with its famous heritage roller coaster). Hastings Park is also home to the Pacific National Exhibition and Fair in the last two weeks of August.
Parking and transportation
We have a dedicated parking space for you at the back of the house, just 30 feet or so from the suite entrance. There is additional parking along the street at the front of the house. You'll find a bus stop just two blocks away; going to or from downtown Vancouver is about a 20 minute ride. Taxi service to downtown is usually $15-20.
