Vancouver Suite Deal in Cozy Cedar Cottage
average rating of 4.5 based on 13 reviews

PERFECT! - location, accommodations, hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This suite lived up to all my expectations. The location was perfect and the suite was exactly as described, clean and very well maintained. The fresh fruit and flowers we found on our arrival was a lovely surprise. It is walking distance to everything you need - groceries, restaurants, bakeries, transportation - even a notary. It is very family friendly - my grandchildren loved playing in the back yard and watching the birds at the bird feeders. Chris and Joanne couldn't have been nicer or more helpful - now I have two new friends in Vancouver. I will definitely stay with them again and highly recommend the Vancouver Suite Deal.

What a fabulous suite! Many thanks Chris and Joanne for having us. A perfect base for exploring your beautiful Vancouver. The suite is extremely well equipped and the addition of fresh flowers, milk, coffee, tea etc was much appreciated. The suite was clean and the beds comfortable. The vast garden area out the back was well used by our 2 little boys. It was very easy to use the oven, washing machine, dryer which were essential for us given we had the 2 little ones.

The suite is located a short walk away from a gorgeous little cafe - Cedar Cottage Cafe from memory. Opens at 6am which worked brilliantly for us! Also along that main road were 2 of the best 'dim sum' places we have eaten at and very well priced too. Walking distance too is a big supermarket which was handy given we prepared most meals at home.

Getting into the downtown area was easy enough. We caught the #19 bus and then got off at the sky train stop and caught that the rest of the way which definately saves a good 15 minutes on the bus.

Thankyou again Chris and Joanne for your warm hospitality.

Owner's Response: Hello Wayne Wow! We really appreciate your review! Thanks so much. Joanne and Chris

Great place for families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Suite Deal in April, 2011. It was the perfect place for our young family. It was exactly as described, clean, comfortable, and very well-located. It rained quite a lot during our week so having the extra space was great as we spent more time in the suite than expected. The kids were happy watching tv and playing board games, and my husband and I actually finished a couple of books (a miracle when you two of your three kids are age three and under!).

Joanne and Chris were lovely, and the flowers, fruit and tourist info were much appreciated. The neighborhood is great with a perfect little park within two blocks and some amazing Asian food within easy walking distance. We are still dreaming about the Vietnamese subs on the corner! Commercial Drive is close too, and there are no shortage of wonderful restaurants and shops. Taiyo Sushi on Commercial was awesome! Seriously great service and prices.

Our favourite activities were the Vancouver Aquarium (especially the 4D theatre), Lynn Canyon, Troll's in Horseshoe Bay for lunch, and hanging out in Stanley Park. Plus eating - Vancouver has such amazing food, and we found the prices very reasonable.

We will definitely be back and would recommend Suite Deal to anyone. So much better than a hotel - and the bonus is all the money you save!

We stayed with our daughter and her husband.

It was a great home away from home. We had every thing we needed in a great location. The suite nice option to over priced hotels. Joanne and Chris were very helpful on our arrival. Our security deposit was promply refunded. Public transportation was near the house. We parked our car at the house, when we arrived walked and got bus passes.

We will return and recommend.

cozy, homey, brought our family closer together

  • 4 of 5

Joanne and Chris greeted us the first day we arrived, and took extra attention and care, in making sure that we were comfortable. Moreover, they were helpful in guiding us with ideas on things to do in-and-out of the city, i.e., suggesting for us to visit the capital at Victoria Island (which is a must-visit). Overall, we really enjoyed the cozy and homey space.

Best of all, if you have a car, this location is excellent, and only a short-10-15 min. drive from downtown.

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure having all five of you here with us during the holiday season. Yes, the capital city of Victoria on Vancouver Island is "must see". The ferry trip - sailing through the gulf islands and spotting eagles, seals, and even baby whales - is a breath-taking. We hope you visit again!
