We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Urban Gardens. Linda was very helpful in getting us started with directions, the transit system, etc. Everything we needed in the apartment was there. We had a lovely back garden - and fortunately, great weather. The location is fabulous - half block off Commercial Drive - everything you would want to buy for consumption at home or in a restaurant was available. We particularly enjoyed the Vietnam restaurant and the Thai take out. No reason to cook!! The bus stopped half block away - great transportation into downtown. We had no need for a car. A really great experience.

Comfortable Charming Cottage

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in June and felt very at home. The cottage apartment is quite comfortable and tastefully decorated, and had everything we needed. Warm shower, good internet connection, comfortable bed with warm duvet, dresser and closet space with lots of hangers, extra linens, guide books, CDs to listen to...Linda has put good thought into providing the little touches that make one feel like a welcome guest rather than just a tenant. The neighborhood was fun and eclectic, with enough coffee shops for every day of the month, and various interesting restaurants. A highly recommended place to stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed pretending to be locals in the Commercial Drive area. Fun neighborhood and fantastic location. The apartment is so well stocked and comfortable, we couldn't have asked for more.

great little rental

Great location right off Commercial drive. Cute little modified basement apartment. Very comfortable for 2 people. Quiet neighborhood. Clean bathroom and small kitchen.

The house next door is currently under construction and they start early during the week.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. One small correction ... the apartment is not a basement apartment. As you can see from the pictures, it is at ground level (first floor) with a private patio. There is no basement; the house was built on a slab.
The owner next door says he hopes to finish the renovation by the summer.
