Overview

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.

About Toni

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

Why Toni chose Hastings-Sunrise (Hastings Park)

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We highly recommend Myrtle Suite as a Vancouver home away from home. The apartment is well-decorated, spotlessly clean, has up to date appliances and lots of storage space. The ground floor entrance and designated parking space were most convenient. We also appreciated the host's availability for our questions. The location is a quiet, pretty neighbourhood with nearby parks and ready access to main routes for downtown or North Vancouver

Lovely Suite, Gracious Hospitality

We did an overnight in Vancouver on our way to the Okanagan wine-festival. Our hosts, Toni and Bob welcomed us to their lovely, well-appointed, comfortable suite and provided everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Highly recommend!

Myrtle Suite

  • 5 of 5
We were in Vancouver for 10 days on business and luckily found this "Suite" little hide away. It was just perfect for the two of us. After a long day of meetings and classes it was like "going home." Everything we needed was there for us to use. It wasn't hard to find and very close to downtown. Toni and Bob are the perfect hosts and very helpful. The price was very fair and less than staying in a hotel and eating out everyday. She even has laundry accommodations. I would highly recommend staying at Myrtle Suite. I look forward to using this place again every time we go to Vancouver. Thanks for the comfort of home.

Wonderful luxurious friendly family break

  • 5 of 5
Our hosts at this lovely holiday property made us very welcome right from the word go! It was the perfect place to stay for a couple or a family of 3 or 4 . We were very comfortable and the suite was even nicer than we imagined...spotless, well equipped, and tastefully decorated....a real delight! We had a car and the location was excellent for getting into town or into the mountains. Things we particularly enjoyed were hiring bikes to go round Stanley park, exploring downtown, mountains, canyons and icecreams! We would thoroughly recommend it, with easy parking in a nice neighbourhood, a lovely garden to sit out in and fantastic views too......we can't wait to stay again!

Excellent Garden Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Bob, Toni, and Pepe were delightful hosts! They were very helpful with suggestions about the area, and ideas of things to do. The apartment was beautiful and well equipped with things you may need(e.g. can openers, bottle openers, knives, linens). It is bright and cheery with an excellent view of Toni's garden out the back of the apartment. My 2yr old was welcomed and loved getting to know Miss Toni. She asks daily if it is time to go back and play at Miss Toni's house. Overall it was our best vacation rental yet, and an extremely positive experience.

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.
