If you are coming to the West Coast for Pleasure or Business you will find The Steveston Garden Suite is your home away from home. Ideal for visitors, business travellers, small families, or re-locators who prefer a self-catering suite and privacy instead of the traditional Bed and Breakfast or Hotel accommodation.

We offer a 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom suite on the main floor of our house. You will find the suite completely furnished with high end furnishings and a modern new kitchen where you can prepare your meals. Shared laundry room for your convenience. The suite overlooks a large, north-facing patio where you can relax and enjoy a coffee in the private garden and in the evening enjoy sitting in the hot tub under the stars. Whether your stay is in Vancouver or en-route to Whistler, Blackcomb, or Victoria on Vancouver Island, make your home away home base in this fantastic well located suite in Vancouver's best kept secret Steveston Village!

Also, the village is also where CBS tapes their popular show 'Once Upon a Time' come and walk thru 'Storybrook' have a coffee at 'Granny's Diner' (Cannery Cafe).

Ships To Shore 2014 ( June 29th - July 1st/14)

Ships to Shore 2014 History, adventure and fun will sail back into Richmond for Ships to Shore Steveston 2014 on Sunday, June 29 until Tuesday, July 1.

For the fourth year in a row, you can relive the days when Richmond's Steveston Village was a major port-of-call for fleets of sailing ships from around the world.

The ships will be docked at Imperial Landing, just a few paces along the wooden boardwalk from the village centre. You can also get to the event site by taking a short stroll along picturesque Steveston boardwalk from Britannia Shipyards, National Historic Site.

Ships to Shore, which also coincides with the Steveston Salmon Festival - one of Canada’s longest running and most popular Canada Day celebrations, will make Steveston village come alive with free events and activities for the whole family.

Just under a 10 minute stroll from our suite plus watch the parade come past 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.

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 that our guest 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

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.

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.

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!

STEVESTON JEWEL

  • 5 of 5
I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Steveston Garden Suites, located in the historic seaside village of Steveston, in Richmond BC. The accomodation is beautifully and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped, down to a lovely expresso machine. The owners have clearly considered and anticipated any guest's needs. The suite is within a few minute walk of the historical village centre, where there several lovely restaurants and shops. At the entrance to the suite, there is a lovely garden area which is ideal for enjoying a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. I loved my stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Richmond area.

COMPLETELY EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here with our 14-month-old for four nights and we received overwhelmingly kind and generous hospitality. Alexandra and Mark provided us with everything you would possibly need for a toddler - high chair, stroller, toys, a range of baby bath products and towels, cot, baby monitor, change table and even a gorgeous little dressing gown! All were of high quality and completely exceeded our expectations. Mark and Alexandra were super quick to reply to emails and more than helpful answering all our questions. It was also a simply gorgeous apartment, in which they had obviously invested a lot of love and care. The unit is below a house, so you can hear people moving about upstairs. This didn't bother us too much, and the luxury and service we experienced certainly made up for it. Thank you so much Alexandra and Mark, we really felt like treasured guests!
