Lovely Oasis

  • 5 of 5
Buddha Spring Retreat is a delightful space with all of the facility and calm that you will need. We were out exploring Vancouver during beautiful weather, but had it rained, we would have been very happy to stay indoors. Beautiful, spacious and mindfully designed.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our retreat. It is cozy inside when the weather doesn't cooperate and still lovely to enjoy the tranquil backyard protected by the glass covering to keep you dry! Please keep us in mind for any future travels plans!

Beautiful property! Wished we could have stayed longer...

  • 5 of 5
We stopped here for only one night as part of an 8 day road trip through Oregon, Seattle, Vancouver, and Victoria. We got in late and then had to leave early the next morning for a boat tour through Horseshoe Bay. We wish we could have stayed longer because the place was extremely beautiful and cozy. The bedroom has very pretty linens and a comfortable bed. The kitchen is very inviting and includes any utensils and dishes that you might need. As it was dark when we arrived, we did not get a chance to enjoy the backyard, but it looked very inviting also. This place is convenient to many attractions in Vancouver, such as Stanley Park and Capilano suspension bridge Park. Want to visit again and will definitely try to stay here longer than one night!

An oasis in North Vancouver

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been happier with our stay in Buddha Spring Retreat! The location was perfect for exploring North Vancouver, Lynn Canyon, Deep Cove. We caught the bus right out front for a stress free trip to Stanley park. The apartment is clean, bright, spacious, artfully decorated, with all of the conveniences of home. Loved the private back yard complete with flowers, fountain, and dining area.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon. The private basement suite was spacious, clean and very comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. We decided to choose this location as it is just steps away from Mount Fromme where some of the best mountain biking trails are located. As we had mountain bikes, we were also able to keep them inside the property when we weren't using them. The property is also conveniently located within walking distance to Lynn Valley Village where we used many of the shops and services available, such as grocery shopping, grabbing an afternoon coffee or dropping into a yoga class. Communication with Karen was quick and very helpful throughout the entire process. We highly recommend this location and actually wanted to stay longer but was fully booked. Karen - thank you for providing us with such a wonderful get-away spot. We hope to be back soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review! I didn't now it was your honeymoon! (I would have done something a little special for you)
The mountain bike trails are abundant and right outside the front door. Every year thousands ride around in those trails. They are also great for hiking and dog walking.
The suite is ideally located, just 20 mins by bus or car into the city yet out of the hustle and bustle.
We would love to host you again some day, and Congratulations on your marriage!

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Buddha Retreat for almost 2 months. The accomodation was exactly what we needed, and the layout was well done, spacious, and equipped with anything you could ever need. The backyard was excellent for our 3 year old as he could ride his bike, while we cooked dinner with the doors open. Karen was wonderful to work with, and even with a small issue at check-in, she managed to resolve the concern immediatley. We tried to extend our stay, but it was already booked. The location was perfect for us and we could run to Lynn Valley Headwaters to enjoy the trails. I would recommend staying here again any day. Thanks Karen!!

Owner's Response: l would also like to thank you and your family for taking such good care of our suite during your house hunting escapade!
The fully fenced back yard is a great place for young people and easy to keep an eye on them!
I am sorry we were not able to accommodate you any longer. I am happy for you though that you found alternate accommodations until you can once and for all be settled into your new place!
Thanks for the great review and Happy Summer!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
Great spot, close to great hiking and mt. bike trails. Quiet and peaceful. Owner was very accommodating and quick to answer questions. We are a family of four (2 young boys) and had no issues with space as the boys shared the fold down futon. Will definitely be renting again in the future.
