Perfect home base for exploring Vancouver

  • 4 of 5
I had a fantastic stay at the Wren's Nest. The apartment is simple, clean, simply but tastefully decorated, and well organized. Very pleasant for one or two people. The kitchen is not really equipped for cooking, but handy to have a fridge and microwave. Comfy bed, great shower/really nice bathroom, and shared outdoor table and chairs. Some overhead noise from tenants on floor above but not too much. Best is the location - around the corner from everything on Broadway (shopping, dining, bars, markets, etc), but also just a few blocks from the gorgeous seawall on the other side, and an easy walk to Kit's beach, amazing swimming pool, etc. Fantastic, stunning neighborhood in every way, and easy to catch bus straight to center of the city, Stanley Park, etc., as well as to get to UBC area to the west. Linda was a great host and communicator; went out of her way to respond to a couple of special requests. All around super easy, affordable and perfect for my week-long stay exploring Vancouver -- could not have made a better choice!

Lovely little apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5
The rental is the perfect size for a couple. Everything was set up well for our stay. There is enough of a kitchenette to make coffee and breakfast or a simple lunch. The location was fantastic, just steps from Broadway (for groceries, restaurants and transit) and connected to the bike network in Vancouver, which is how we got around for the majority of our trip. (Bikes were from the UBC Bike Kitchen, which looked to be the best deal for a week long rental. A short bus ride from the rental).

Linda was also very helpful with recommendations of restaurants and other attractions near the rental.

I would (and already have) recommend this place to anyone.

The suite was very clean and everything in the description was there. There is plenty of restaurants , grocery stores and the suite is a walking distance from many small parks. You can easily take the bus to downtown. I recommend the suite ! The owner is very nice and Linda took the time to answer all of my questions. Thank you so much!

excellent location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had an excellent time in Vancouver, and in part it was to this great rental. My impression beforehand was that there were one or two local cafes or restaurants, but in reality it's a half block off of W Broadway which is miles of shops, restaurants, and bars. That being said, it's not a loud area and the house was very quiet so the sleep was good. The studio was clean and in good order, and Linda was responsive and kind. She made it a breeze and I would stay here again.

Relaxed stay at Vancouver near broadway

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted to come to this small, fine, nicely done up and very clean appartment after having an approx. 10 hours flight to Vancouver. The furniture of the appartment is convinient and we had enough space for arranging baby play pen and our luggage. The stay was arranged several weeks before our arrival and the owners were very helpful to arrange the stay and to solve every problem which has appeared.

The owners are a very friendly and heart warming couple (with a very childfriendly and cute daughter) which have helped us with several recommendations for sightseeing or local attractions as well as for journeys around Vancouver.

The proximity to the heart of Kitsilano / the broadway or 4th avenue makes it easy to find a nice restaurant and having delicious food as well as to go shopping or to start a journey to downtown Vancouver. Furthermore, the beaches of Kitsilano are away only a few minutes to go.

To conclude our overall impressions: it was a very nice stay at this appartment, we can definitely recommend this accomodation to everyone who is looking for a stay not far away from Vancouver city centre with a attractive value for money in perfect harmony.

Perfect stay - thank you! Hope to see you again as soon as possible!

We spent a week at Wren's Perch. This was the perfect place for us. We loved that it was half a block away from shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs but yet was very quiet and cozy. It was exactly as advertized. We had a car but had no problem with parking. Public transportation was nearby and convienent for when we did not want to drive. You could quickly get downtown. The neigborhood was really nice. There was a public library nearby where we could access the internet. Linda was very helpful and accessible. I would definitely recommend staying here.
