MEMORY IN GARDEN COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Helene and Phillip are the great hosts I meet. When I checked in, Phillip helped me to carry my big suitcase and led me around. He told me I should bring my daughter to Canada Place for National Day visit. Their house are beautiful and everything is elegant. I like cooking everyday in their house. One day I went to Lynn Canyon Park with turning off the stove. I called Helene to help me timely to avoid a terrible accident. When I came back, everything was ok and I didn't smell any smoke. Phillip also helped me to clean the stove and pot. They even put some stuff or air freshener to remove the smoking. They did not blame me about this accident at all, but said thanks to me for telling them about the truth to save it. I do appreciate them again and will live their garden cottage again next summer.

HOSPITALITY PERSONIFIED

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to begin our relocation to Vancouver. The cottage had everything we needed to feel at home. It was clean and comfortable and close to public transport, shopping, restaurants and parks. The neighbourhood was beautiful with all the manicured lawns and flowers blooming everywhere. Helene and Philippe were superb hosts and were always there when we needed something. They really went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay and we definitely did!

My daughter and I loved staying at the Garden Cottage. My daughter had appointments at the BC Children's hospital and it was only 10 minutes away (including parking the car!).
Helene and Phillip are wonderful hosts and very accommodating.
Gladly stay again.

YOU CAN'T DO BETTER THAN THIS!

You can't do better than this!

The location is great - very close to Cambie and not far from Main. The cottage is nicely furnished and equipped with everything you could need - including a washer/dryer combo unlike anything we have every seen. Helene and Philippe are friendly, helpful and quick to respond to requests (including our request for matches to light some candles on my daughter's birthday cake!). We had trouble with the wireless internet connection and, without our having to ask, Helene credited us $50 for the inconvenience - thank you! Overall, a snug little cottage in a great location operated by friendly and helpful people. You really couldn't do better. Next time we are in Vancouver, we hope to stay here again.

IMPECCABLE COTTAGE. KIND AND ATTENTIVE HOSTS. LOCATION PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Thorough preparation by Helene before arrival. I felt I knew just how to find Garden Cottage and check in. She provides coffee, tea, sugar, assorted snacks to help with the first night and first morning coffee!
It snowed the entire weekend, so Philippe kept the walks shoveled and safe. He and Helene are attentive to any need of mine. If they saw I was having difficulty with the door code, they quickly came to my aid. Philippe brought me fresh crepe with chocolate sauce on Sunday morning. They drove me to my family destination at my departure because the snow made walking with a rolling suitcase difficult. They are so attentive and kind. The cottage is just perfect: cozy, warm, well appointed and equipped, charmingly decorated.
Location in Riley Park neighborhood off Main Street, near Cambie Street, near public transportation is so convenient. Safe for walking at night.
Walk to so many shops, restaurants, public spots. I was there for a family member who was in a nearby hospital, and the location made visits easy. They provide a cell phone for local calls. Since my American cell phone was too expensive for international use, this amenity was invaluable to me.
