Snug and well located gem.

  • 5 of 5
We loved the location! Perfect for hours of walking or exercising our dog. The suite was cozy and nicely appointed. We appreciated the fireplace during the evenings. This is a super find and one we're reticent to share as we're sure to book again.

Great Rental in a Great Neighborhood - Serenity in the City!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this rental in June 2014.

There were four of us - parents and two teenage kids. The suite comes with a cot and a double mattress, so it sleeps 4 comfortably.

The suite is fully equipped with pretty much everything that you would need for a comfortable stay. We didn't use the kitchen much because of the great location - we walked to the many cafes and pubs that are within a 10-20 minute walk. The suite is right across from a park.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Everything is exactly as in the pictures. The kitchen has all the gadgets that you need, everything is really clean and well maintained.
 The location is perfect, sky train is nearby or a short drive to downtown.
 Lots of places around to have a good dinner and the across street park is beautiful for a walk.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
Trout Lake Suite was everything we could have wanted - comfortable, clean, well equipped, excellent location...we could go on and on. Jean and Jen are wonderfully helpful hosts who know the area well and made sure we didn't loose a minute being lost or frustrated. Every direction and recommendation was spot on. What a wonderful week we had because of them!

Jen was particularly helpful and considerate of all our needs. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and located across from a lovely park, within easy walking distance of shops and transit hub. Would use again and would recommend to friends.

Lovely rental across from Trout Lake Park!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Trout Lake Suite over 4th of July weekend with our dog and two kids. The owner, Jen, who lives upstairs, was SO friendly and helpful with toys and sporting equipment for the kids and recommendations for things to do in the area. The suite worked well for us (with us in the bedroom and the kids on the air mattress in the living room) and we really appreciated how nice Jen and Jean were to our kids and dog. It's really difficult to find pet-friendly accommodations when we travel, so it was great that our furry family member was so welcomed. In fact, we liked the area and the neighborhood so much that we just stayed nearby and didn't even make it to downtown, Granville Island, or the Asian night market like we'd planned (but we've been to all those places before). We will be going back to Vancouver next month and we hope to stay with Jen and Jean again!

The suite is located across the street from John Hendry Park ('Trout Lake'), a beautiful 80-hectare park with a walking path around the lake, a cycling path around lake, an off-leash dog park, picnic and barbecue areas, a brand new high-end kids playground, baseball diamonds, soccer fields, tennis courts, a beach area, and beautiful mountain and wildlife views.

The suite is located very close to shops and cafes of Commercial Drive, named one of the hippest neighbourhoods in North America, and offers easy access to all other areas of the city, from North Shore mountains (Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge, etc.) to Granville Island to downtown galleries, museums, theatres and more.

Our guests always comment on how much they love the location!
