Overview

South Cambie Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 BR self contained apartment with private entrance on beautiful Douglas Park

Clean, comfortable 1 bedroom garden level suite with private entrance, patio, and garden. Close to everything Vancouver has to offer - shopping, restaurants, recreation and the Canada Line subway to downtown and the airport all a short walk away.

Four bus lines run very close, taking you directly to Downtown, UBC, Stanley Park, Granville Island, etc. If you arrive by car, there is free parking just outside the door.

BC's major health centres, Vancouver General Hospital, BC Cancer Agency, and BC Children's Hospital are all within 15 minutes walking distance.

This is a great location for families, with a nice park across the street with playground, fitness center, running track, and splash pool in summer. Free family oriented concerts every Thursday evening in the summer! Hillcrest Olympic Rec Center is also close by, with a large pool (indoor and outdoor), skating rink, library, etc.

Local shopping and restaurants are only 500m away, in Cambie Village. Other shopping districts are also within just a few km: Main Street, South Granville, Granville Island, and the large Oakridge Mall.

When you are not out in the city, enjoy the peaceful private patio with a view of the park and mountains!

The apartment is very quiet and private, with a queen size bed in the bedroom and a sofa in the sitting room that converts to a second queen-sized bed. A single mattress or a portable crib can be supplied on request. The bathroom has grab bars installed in the bath tub, making access easy and safe. Clean linens and towels are provided, and housekeeping services during the stay are available if desired. Guests also have free access to a shared laundry room.

The living room has been recently updated with a 42" flatscreen TV.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found the host, Jamie, to be very friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean, beds very comfortable and provided all necessary comforts of home. The view from the garden patio was beautiful, overlooking a park out to the mountains. The location was in a lovely quiet tree lined street and is an easy walk to shops, transport & parks.

Ideal location, super garden suite.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late in the evening, no problem as had a number for the door lock, a useful thing as you don't need to worry about keys and loosing them! This is a great neighbourhood and perfect if you want to experience the real Vancouver living in a community. Douglas Park across the road is perfect if you like to keep fit, a great place to just walk around and in the evenings you can watch little league practice. A car is not a necessity as transport links are so close by and take you virtually anywhere you could want to go. There is a parade of stores including a safeway 5-10 mins walk in one direction and 10-15 mins in another direction there are more stores. The apartment itself is great, the house next door was being renovated and I hadn't realised until I walked outside as I didn't hear any of the construction! Nice bedroom with en suite bath/shower, a sitting area and kitchen area and nice and light. Jamie is very welcoming and helpful, you have a contact number if you have any problems. There is a folder with lots of information that Jamie has complied and people leave leaflets etc regarding attractions for you to look through. I was here for almost 3 weeks and I will definitely be requesting to stay there again on my next trip. Definitely recommend this garden suite.

Very clean and comfortable apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This South Cambie apartment was perfect for our weekend stay in Vancouver to take in Davis Cup tennis at UBC. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and in a quiet neighbourhood. The South Cambie location is great: handy to other Vancouver neighbourhoods while also worth exploring for its own local charms. We found our host, Jamie, to be very welcoming and helpful in providing detailed information for visitors. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to post a review. I had a chance to watch some of the Davis Cup tennis on TV, and it was pretty exciting!

Warm and inviting

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this warm and inviting little suite in December. Although very central to shops, transportation, and other services, it is in a situated in a wonderfully quiet and safe residential neighbourhood. There is no need of a car in this location if walking short distances is not a problem; however, free parking is available right outside the house. The private entrance to the suite is from a garden patio that overlooks 13-acre Douglas Park with its grass playing fields and Community Centre. In the distance are the coastal mountains. Everything that is needed is provided, and the suite is meticulously clean. Jamie provided us with a door-lock code before our arrival, so that we were free to come and go; he also provided his phone number should we need anything. Jamie lives with his wife and family upstairs, but there is seldom any indication that they are there. We are sure that we will stay in this suite when we visit Vancouver again.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful suite was our holiday base whilst visiting friends in the amazing city of Vancouver and it was perfect for us. It was clean and well equipped with everything thought of by Jamie the owner to make us feel welcome. The quiet location was great, having lovely views of the park, yet only a short walk to the Skytrain. We would definitely go back or recommend this gem to friends or family.

Sweet Suite

  • 5 of 5

My daughter found this suite as we were looking for a place that was quiet and private as we were attending a family memorial. The location was great, across from a green park. We enjoyed the morning sun on the patio chairs and had breakfast on the little bistro table provided. How calming and peaceful it was. It was exactly as the photos showed. IT was clean, white linens. and cozy down comforter. We were able to feel safe with windows open during the night as the neighborhood was very quiet. I needed to contact the owner as we were going to perhaps have an extra person stay, who did not, but he was most accommodating with our request. I would most definitely stay here again should I require accommodation in Vancouver. We loved the "homey" feeling.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Garden Suite. It's in a convenient and nice neighborhood. Only 5 mins away from skytrain, it is right across from the park, where my son loved to play soccer every morning. The apartment is well equipped and clean. Great experience for us first time stay in Vancouver!
