Guestbook comments from the owner
What a wonderful place to stay! We loved it. We live in Los Angeles and were living in Vancouver for a few months while my husband worked on a movie. The location is perfect, centrally located to the popular 4th street and all it's shops and restaurant, and only minutes away from the beach and other attractions - it was perfect for us and our three year old son.
The two-story house itself is so tastefully decorated, warm, inviting and cozy. Every amenity is thought of. We especially loved the heated floors! A definite must during the winter! Though when it wasn't cold out, we enjoyed the two lovely patios right outside our doors. Kathy and Davy couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. It was a pleasure to have their help so close at hand. This carriage house is a real gem and we can't wait for our return.
