PERFECT SUITE FOR US, IN A GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We needed a base for our two week stay in Vancouver and this was the perfect solution. A modern clean suite with excellent amenities. We loved the location which was close to the great shops, cafes, bars and restaurants on Commercial Drive. It was 5 mins to the nearest Sky train station which meant easy access to the rest of Vancouver. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and we felt at home. This is also a great location for families as it is situated opposite a lovely park. Overall a great experience that we would recommend and would visit again!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was my home away from home for a month while my apartment was being renovated and I couldn't have asked for a better set-up. Jen and Jean have thought of everything to make a guest's stay as easy, comfortable and homelike as possible. The apartment is lovely, clean as a whistle and very livable. If you are looking for a place to stay during renos - this is the place! If you are visiting Vancouver, this would be a terrific home-base while you explore the City. Highly recommended!

COMMERCIAL DRIVE NEIGHBORHOOD STAY

  • 4 of 5
Helpful and accommodating family upstairs let us (2 adults, 1 toddler) stay in their 1 bedroom suite for a week in February at a very good rate. The place is cozy, well-lit with natural light for its location. Efficient use of small space to have all the essentials away from home. If you are not an apartment dweller, you may find the bathroom is a bit small, but it met our needs just fine (bathtub for bathtime!). The divider also came in handy for our little one's bedtime. Great location: across the street from a park & community centre perfect for our toddler, walking distance to Sky Train and the brewery- and pizzeria-laden Commercial Drive district. Many thanks to Jen for very prompt communication. I left a few things (camera, batteries, etc.) and I got a phone call within hours of departing so I had time to come back for them. Thanks guys! Would definitely stay again!!

GREAT STAY WHILE VISITING VANCOUVER.

  • 5 of 5
If you are planning to go on vacation to Vancouver, Canada I highly recommend coming to Jen & Jean’s place at Trout Lake. It is a very sweet and charming place close to a beautiful park - with an outstanding farmers market every Saturday morning!!

It is a little bit outside of the main city center, but you can easily get wherever you want by bus or SkyTrain in 10 to 15 minutes. Both stations are in walking distance from Trout Lake Suite.

Jen & Jean are very kind and are glad to help making suggestions on where to go for dinner and what to see. Both restaurants they suggested for us were perfect. We felt very much at home in their house and would come back anytime. Vancouver, we miss you!
