About Sascha Westendorp

We are a German-Canadian family of 4. We moved to Vancouver in 1998 and fell in love with the City.

Our 2 daughters attend the local High Schools and they as well speak English and German!

Sascha Westendorp purchased this house in 2001

Why Sascha Westendorp chose Dunbar-Southlands

We love what Vancouver has to offer - one of the most 'versatile' cities in the world. The area where we live is on a hill and you have a view of the mountains. You never really have the feeling you live right in the city.

Being so close to the mountains, the forest, the beaches and downtown is truly unique!

What makes this house unique

Our house has a lush garden for you to enjoy, the view of the mountains and a big park just 1 minute away.

Close to city

  • 5 of 5

The stay was everything we had hoped for. Sasha was very welcoming and gave us some great ideas for restaurants. Close to downtown and other areas of the city. We had a car for our stay which made access to the area very easy. The suite was comfortable and clean. We had a teenager son with us which made the suite a bit crowded. Would be great for a couple. In all a great place to stay.

Beautiful place in a beautiful city

  • 5 of 5

The description fits well to the place, we arrived and felt very welcome. The place is clean and lovely furnished. The garden is beautiful. Sascha and Robert were very friendly and helpful. The area around the suite is nice and we could cycle a lot. For a lot of activities this suite is the perfect place to start, it's not downtown, but you can reach everywhere by bus. With our teenager girls we had a wonderful time here.

What a wonderful home base for our Vancouver stay

  • 5 of 5

This review is a couple of months belated. So it goes. We were fortunate to book this "garden suite" (more like a small apartment) for the first few days of our extended summer trip to Vancouver, Vancouver Island, then the Canadian Rockies and across a good deal of the heartland. This place was exceedingly comfortable for the two of us. The backyard garden on which the unit opens is lovely and we did a few hours of sitting / reading there after a three-day drive from Denver. It is in a very nice neighborhood, no more than ten minutes from UBC, perhaps fifteen minutes from downtown and Stanley Park, etc. Sascha, the host/proprietor, and her husband Robert could not have been more friendly and helpful. They directed us to good bike paths; told us where to watch a World Cup soccer game as part of a local scene; had plenty of restaurant recommendations (though we came armed with our own places we wanted to try); etc. Highly recommended - two thumbs way up. With appreciation.

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and her friend (both from outside of Canada) stayed in this amazing garden suite while participating in a 4 week university program. Their stay was outstanding! The suite was exactly as described, spotlessly clean, with all the amenities needed. The owners set up a separate bed in the living room, so both students could have their own space. They loved that they had their own private entrance, so they could come and go, as they needed. The kitchen had everything they needed for simple meals. The location is superb -- with a market, drug store, bank, Starbucks and public transit - all within a short walking distance. The market had a huge selection of ready-made meals, which was very helpful for two students with a busy schedule. The public transit system was easy to use, and offered easy access to the university and for exploring other parts of the city. The owners were amazing! They treated the girls like family, checking in with them to make sure their stay was going well, and answering any questions they might have had. They went well beyond what was expected, including inviting them to dinner and to watch the fireworks one evening! It couldn't have been more perfect. Highly recommend this property; it will be top of our list for a return visit to Vancouver.

Super Location, Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this super garden apartment on our first visit to Vancouver. Sascha has thought of everything and we really apreciated the breakfast items and the champagne. We would highly recommend both the apartment and the location and if ever we get to Vancouver again would have no hesitation in booking here. One of the few places when away from home where I have found the bed really comfortable!

A charming flat

  • 5 of 5

This sweet garden flat in the Dunbar area of Vancouver makes a great jumping off point for exploring the city. It's under the home of the owner, Sascha, and along with its own entrance has a private patio in the garden.

My husband, two college-age daughters, and I stayed there comfortably for three days - having breakfast in and dinner out, which the kitchenette supported perfectly.

Sascha is a visual designer, and her work and artistic sensibility are on display throughout -- from the smart use of space to the cool tiling in the bathroom. Her description and pictures of the apartment are completely accurate.
