Pet Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Jen and Jean were the perfect hosts. Always there to answer questions and deal with little problems. Having the lovely park right across the street was such a bonus. We walked our dog there several times a day. The recreational centre was really convenient too and has excellent equipment. We loved exploring the Commercial Drive area and trying out many of the restaurants. We would certainly return again.

This lovely little suite was just perfect for the 2 of us and our older dog. Jen and Jean were friendly and responded to our every request. Great location for walking the dog and then going out to explore Commercial Drive. We would definitely return.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I usually stay downtown Vancouver when visiting, but decided to try something different this time. What a great decision! Jennifer and Jean's suite is cozy, spacious, and very well equipped for a home away from home experience. The neighbourhood is quiet and beautiful. It is situated right across from a lovely park and community centre, and a short walk to the a bustling Commercial Drive, where you can find many fine restaurants. We took the sky train into the city and it was effortless. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks Jen and Jean!

Discovery Vancouver for the first time...

  • 5 of 5

I bit late in leaving this feedback. Myself and my wife stayed at Jen & Jean's lovely 1 bedroom suite for 8 nights in late Sept 2014. Jen & Jean were super friendly and couldn't have been nicer, they shared their wealth of local knowledge whether it was restaurants, trains/buses to catch or which ferry to take to Vancouver Island nothing was too much hassle for them. We decided to go for a suite/apartment as opposed to a hotel so we could come and go as we pleased, some nights we ate out and the other nights we stayed in as we walk miles during our stay and were pretty tired. The accommodation was clean, tidy, and more than adequate for our 8 night stay and if we ever found ourselves in Vancouver again (which is a gorgeous city) we'd certainly stay here again. Best wishes to Jen & Jean for looking after us and making us most welcome. Jonathan & Caroline Ward

Perfect location for those who love a walk in the park!

  • 5 of 5

This was just the perfect place to stay. Winter or summer this newly retrofitted ground level suite is ideal for those of us who love to have access to more than just a hotel room. We've just spent Christmas and it was ideal. We made a super Brunch and had family over plus a walk in the park followed by more family for dinner!

And the suite.... everything you could wish for..fireplace, cushy sofa, smart dining table, great bed, nice bathroom, lovely garden, well equipped kitchen, close to Commercial Drive but right opposite Trout Lake and the community centre. You could actually skate and play tennis there. Lots of wildlife in the Lake and on it. Great place for walking dogs or your family. We will definitely go again. The owners were upstairs. They even decorated a tree for us and put up lights etc., made us treats and we loved them.

Great place, location with very responsible and friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Appartment is clean and comfortable. The owner is very helpful and responsible. We stayed there three nights and parking wasn't issue, she already saved us a spot for parking. Place is quiet at night. She also provided a computer with her own nice website link. On her website, there are lots of good information about places to visit while you are in Vancouver BC. The house is cross street from beautiful Trout Lake Park, we went for dog walk in the park. It is a fun park which has lots of activities. We would love to go back one day and stay there again. I would recommend this place. Thanks,
