About Mark and Alexandra

My wife and I enjoyed traveling in Paris last year and now we want to explore more of Europe. We also have enjoyed working on our suite and had lots of fun decorating and getting it ready for VRBO. We ask all our guests to treat our home with respect and to keep it clean for everyone to be able to enjoy!

I put my heart into my suite because this is what I would like to have when I go away on holidays! I have to say I have stayed at different VRBO's where some owners took pride in their suites and it showed by how it was cared for and others where they didn't care. We take pride in out suite and look forward to making new friends like we have already from Germany, Australia, Montreal, and from our trip to Paris last year we met more great friends by staying at their VRBRO in Paris! and we look forward to going back for another visit!

We also have a lovely family upstairs that helps us with the suite and guests if you have any immediate concerns they are very happy to help as well! They also love the experience of meeting new friends!

Mark and Alexandra purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Mark and Alexandra chose Richmond

Steveston Village is in Richmond and is known to be a quaint village and is Vancouvers best kept Secret in the city. We are close to the Vancouver International Airport, Transit at your doorstep easy access from/to Airport, Downtown, Highways, Ferries, US Border, Historic Sites, Beaches, Parks, Sports etc... The village is an escape from the fast pace of the city and you will find lots of history here.

What makes this apartment unique

We are located in a historic part of Richmond, BC. If you are an artist, a photographer or a Bird Watcher Steveston Village is the place to be. A great place to explore by foot or bike or even book a boat tour or be adventurous and go on a Whale Watching Tour. All of this is right at your door step. You will also find quaint little shops and cafes and a multitude of fine dining. Enjoy walks along the wharf and the trails which is just steps from our home. Or stay home and relax in our garden. During summer & fall The Cannery has the Farmers Market every other weekend. In the summer we have the Tall Ships come in, Sockeye Festival just down at the park and the parade goes right pass the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Viewed the suite on 02/26/2013 for an Employee from the UK who will be staying with us in March 2013.



Absolutely stylishly decorated, high-end furnishings and finishings - it looks like a picture from a magazine!



2 good size bedrooms, divine kitchen with every gadget you can think of, including espresso / cuppacino maker.



Living room with a fire place - place to breathe and relax.



I highly recommend this for business travellers too - well situated - easy access to Richmond, Vancouver or Surrey.

Lovely and clean garden suite

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in late July and early August 2014. The suite was very clean, comfortable and had all the amenities for cooking and a washer and dryer. We had two girls (11 and 8) who fit nicely into the full bed. My wife and I stayed in the larger room and we were all comfortable. I do not think that 4 adults or larger children could sleep comfortably though. The suite is part of a two story home with tenants above but other than noticing some foot traffic here and there, they did not bother us. The washer and dryer are shared with the upstairs tenants, but there were no competition battles. You have your own driveway parking place. Steveston Village is charming and there are nice shops, good restaurants and the Cannery is a pretty neat landmark to visit and the owners allow you to use their free pass. This is the little town where ABC's "Once Upon a Time" is filmed. We informed the owner that our girls adored the show and she was very kind in providing us with tips on filming. The owners were also very attentive with our emails and always responded timely. We would visit again if we get back to Vancouver/Richmond. We did spend a lot of time touring (e.g., Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler) and the suite was a nice base of operations but toward the end of our trip, the drive into Vancouver got a little long. The only drawback as far as we were concerned.

WOW

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at this wonderful property for one week while our daughter competed in a dance competition. So nice to return to a clean and well stocked home after a hard day of competing and work. The hosts have everything you need and want in a home. A well stocked kitchen, wonderful bedding, linens and a gorgeous yard. Enjoyed the two decks and BBQ area and all the amenities. All our questions were responded too in a quick fashion and they were more than accomodating. The family living on the top floor was helpful and genuine. Would highly recommend this property for a short or long stay.

Excellent Place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place to stay. Nicely decorated quite recently - very clean - peaceful garden space. Everything we needed plus. Deposit was refunded promptly. All was beautiful and just what we needed for our family of 3. We loved walking to the shore, along the dike, and to Steveston restaurants & museums.

Perfect Place In Steveston!

  • 5 of 5
I had a ten day rental in the Steveston Garden Suite for a relocation from my job. It is in a perfect area close to everything. The rental is very tastefully decorated and extremely well furnished. It is a great space with many amenities. It had everything that I could ever need in a rental. It really felt like home. Only a five minute walk from everything in Steveston including Steveston Pizza Company which is my favorite take out pizza! The internet, phone and tv worked great for my whole stay. The suite was very clean and well taken care of. I only used one of the bedrooms and the bed was very comfortable. It should be noted that there is a family that lives in a completely separate part of the house, mostly above the suite. If you are a late riser you may have an issue with a slight bit of noise in the morning, but no more than you would normally have living in an apartment. If I do have occasion to pass through BC again I will definitely stay again!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
All the comforts of home!! Home away from home is the way to describe this delightful Steveston vacation rental. We enjoyed our extended 2 month stay while we were relocating. This home is exceptionally clean and comfortable with a well equipped spacious kitchen. All appliances are new and the bedding and linens are high quality. The second bedroom was a huge bonus not to mention the hot tub!! Steveston Village and Garry point are minutes away, with lots of restaurants, shopping, walking and biking. These friendly owners are only an email away and always available to answer any questions. We would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone and would love to stay again. Thanks Mark & Alexandra!!

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the suite for my in-laws that were visiting from Toronto for three weeks. We were all delighted with the property, inside and out. The location is fantastic, close to town with it's amenities as well as a short walk to the ocean. The property is clean and well-maintained, and the owners were extremely helpful with everything. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends, and look forward to having family stay next time they visit!
