MYRTLE SUITE - MOUNTAIN VIEW; CENTRALLY LOCATED IN LOVELY AREA

Hastings-Sunrise (Hastings Park) House Rental Photos and Description

1 Q bedroom + Q sofa bed ~ delightful place ~ spectacular scenery ~ central.

Myrtle Suite: A delightful accommodation ~ a charming area ~ spectacular scenery ~ centrally located.

Suite Summary

Myrtle Suite is a newly renovated, spacious and bright garden level suite within a character home. This self-catering, self-contained suite is part of a larger house where the owners reside upstairs. The suite is approx. 750 sf and provides 1 bedroom with queen-sized bed plus a sofa bed in the living area. It features full bath, in-suite laundry, hardwood and tile floors, own thermostat, modern kitchen and bathroom. Furnished, including kitchen utensils, plates, pots/pans, spices, etc. The kitchen entrance opens onto a sunny back garden that in the summer blooms with flowers, herbs and grape vines. The living area has a large picture window looking out onto the front garden and offers a gorgeous view of Vancouver's mountains and a peek-a-boo ocean view. Side windows provide more light.

Central Location!

Enjoy easy access by car or transit to Vancouver and surrounding area sights and activities.

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).

The Neighbourhood

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 is part of the Hastings-Sunrise community and close to the shops of 'East Village' along Hastings Street. Also known as the 'hidden triangle', the area is only a few blocks deep and not many more wide and is situated above the shores of Burrard Inlet.

Today Vancouver's charming Burrardview is a community of tree-lined streets and is blessed with plenty of green space, parks and ocean-view walks. Centrally located (see above), 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. Take a short walk to the larger parks of New Brighton and Hastings Park and enjoy the local racecourse, casino and Playland with its famous heritage roller coaster. Hastings Park is also home to the Pacific National Exhibition in the last two weeks of August. This is a vibrant neighbourhood and retains a lovely charm and history in an absolutely spectacular setting!

Amenities Summary

1 Bedroom with queen-sized bed and double closet; queen sofa bed in living area; extra walk in closet/storage; modern full bath/shower; sleek and sunny kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer, toaster, coffee machine, kettle, dishes, cutlery, pots, pans, etc.; Cable TV, WiFi; hydro/electric utilities, cable and internet included. Single vehicle reserved parking (more on street) with close access to suite entrance.

Myrtle Suite: A delightful accommodation ~ a charming area ~ spectacular scenery ~ centrally located.

Originally from Scotland, our family immigrated in the 70s. I've lived in several Canadian locations and in Vancouver from the mid 80s.

Toni purchased this house in 2001

Many years ago, bicycling around town, I discovered the area known as Burrardview (sometimes called the hidden triangle). I thought to myself how wonderful it would be to have a home here.

By very happy chance, and a lot of hard work, 'Myrtle House' is now our home. It is such a lovely location and wonderfully easy to get to so much of all that Vancouver has to offer. We always planned to have a vacation rental and now enjoy offering Myrtle Suite as a base to travellers and short-term visitors. Every day I am thankful for this home, the views, the location, the community.

The views from the house and the neighbourhood are stunning. Watching the sun light up the mountains in the morning or go down in the Northwest late on a summer evening never gets old. I love that we can wander down to the end of our street to play tennis or enjoy the park, we can take lovely walks around the neighbourhood, down to New Brighton park, up to the shops of Hastings Street. It is also terrific to be able to get to so many places in a 10 or 20 minute drive! Or to the airport in 40 minutes or even to Tswassen or Horseshoe Bay ferries.

EXCELLENT CONDO IN PRIME LOCATION WITH AMENITIES.

  • 5 of 5
We looked for a central place in Vancouver to spend 5 days after an Alaska Cruise and decided on Myrtle suite based on the pictures, location, and amenities offered. We were not disappointed as the place was sparklingly clean, is in a quiet neighborhood in Central Vancouver, and had the assistance of the owners, Toni and Bob who live in the upper floor. They had the kitchen stucked with plentiful spices that made cooking very easy and they even provided coffee.
The Wi Fi is fast and efficient and they provided manual with all of the different tourist attractions in Vancouver as well as the nearby restaurants.

If we ever visit Vancouver again we will definitely look to stay at the Myrtle suite.

LOVELY APARTMENT, WOULD RECOMMEND AND STAY AGAIN.

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 8 nights in May. Toni was there to welcome us when we arrived at the door to talk us through a few things and told us how to find the nearest shops and bus stops etc.

The flat is well serviced with high-quailty appliances and units so has the feel of a nice hotel but the privacy of an apartment.

The neighborhood is very quiet, the nearest bus stop is only a 5 minute walk away (if that), shops close-by too. Had no issues at all whilst staying here and really enjoyed it. We would definitely stay again. Oh, and if there is some complimentary granola waiting for you - you must try it, it's the best!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely words and a great informative review for fellow travellers. And I'm so pleased you liked my granola (family recipe). I try to make it for guests' arrivals whenever I can find the time.
All the best,
Toni

BEAUTIFUL DÉCOR, GREAT LOCATION, ALL YOU NEED

  • 5 of 5
This property is just like the listing states and more. The owners are welcoming and happy to share their knowledge about the neighbourhood and city. The kitchen is outfitted with everything you need, whether you just want to make a light breakfast or a gourmet meal. The location is perfect for commuting into Vancouver, yet close to the highway for other excursions.
I would highly recommend this property for business travellers or tourists and the owners are happy to assist you, yet you have total privacy with your own access that leads out to a spectacular 'country garden in the city'.

Stay in a community of tree-lined streets, parks and ocean view walks, walking distance to 'East Village' shopping. Central to historic Gastown, Chinatown, Yaletown, Stanley Park, Granville Island. Enjoy hikes in Lynn Valley, Deep Cove, Bunsen Lake, Capilano Valley. Ski Grouse, Seymour or Cypress. Rent bicycles downtown for a great day trip along bike paths – stop at Science World, beaches of Kitsilano, English Bay and Stanley Park, stroll around the markets and artisan studios of Granville Island (checkout the Kids Market - it's indoor arcade and the nearby waterpark), restaurants and shops, the famous Vancouver Aquarium and more. A car is great in and around Vancouver, but you can see a lot with public transit too!
