We've taken care to make our suite cosy and warm with heated floors and comfortable furniture. A queen-sized bed is in the spacious bedroom and the walk-in closet will allow you to unpack your suitcase and feel right at home. The bathroom has a shower (but sorry, no tub). The small kitchen has everything you need (and if it doesn't you have only to ask us): a two burner cooktop, a small fridge, microwave/convection oven, toaster, coffee maker and more. The shared laundry room has a big freezer with room for your needs as well as ours. WiFi and cable are included with a good array of channels to choose from but you'll be too busy exploring to do too much TV watching. A great array of restaurants, all within walking distance, will make decisions difficult. Grocery stores, shops, library, sushi, coffee shops (we specialize in those!!!) and ice cream/yogurt vendors are plentiful. Transportation isn't a problem if you don't have a car: a bus stop is a block away and a short walk down to Lonsdale Quay will find you at the Seabus terminal. Our Skytrain system will take you all over town and even straight to the airport at the end of your visit.
Our suite is a bright basement suite with windows that bring a lot of light in and there is a private entrance guarded by two cats - both friendly to a fault. If you're missing your own pet one of ours will be pleased to accept any amount of neck-rubbing.
We are two sisters, born and raised in Vancouver. We've lived in North Vancouver most of our lives. Our half duplex was built in 2012 so it's virtually brand new and we love it. One sister is a retired teacher/librarian and the other, a professional accountant, is semi-retired. We downsized from our previous home in North Van where we lived for over 25 years partly to get away from our big garden. Our new garden and deck are just the right size and we love sharing them with friends and family.

We chose this area of North Vancouver because we were looking for something within walking distance shops and restaurants. A park nearby provides a beautiful setting for morning walks and we love the south-facing back yard that provides a lot of natural light.
At first a bit apprehensive about changing neighbourhoods we quickly settled into Lolo (Lower Lonsdale) and its proximity to everything we need but the best thing about it is that it's simply...home.
I stayed at this apartment for just over one month and it was perfect. The hosts are very welcoming, helpful, and respectful of privacy. The apartment is outfitted with everything necessary to make it a perfect home. Close to the seabus terminal for quick access to Vancouver, but also within a short bus ride of many hiking/running trails in the North Shore mountains. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in North Van.
Everything is spotlessly clean and very comfortable, the bed especially so.
My parents visited me from Germany and stayed here for 4 weeks and asked me to write the following review:
The hosts were extremely friendly but we enjoyed a lot of privacy in the suite. The garden offers a very nice sunny seating area in a beautiful and quiet neighbourhood - not far away from Lonsdale Ave with all the shops and restaurants as well as buses and the seabus!
The description and pictures fit very well, we were not disappointed!
This apartment is perfectly suited for any short or long term rental and has everything you would need in it. The layout and furnishing is super smart and perfect for the space.
The mattress is very comfortable, and the closet space super convenient, as is the laundry possibility. Everything was very clean!
Thank you very much for such a pleasant stay and hopefully until next time!

The listing description was perfect and easy to find when we arrived in North Vancouver. The photos accurately reflected the rentals appearance which was very clean and welcoming! There was every amenity necessary for a great visit. The owners were very friendly and were available for any assistance we might have needed. My husband and I felt that the mattress could have been somewhat firmer as we seemed to roll to the middle. We would definitely return to this rental in the future and highly recommend it to others.
The international demographic of North Vancouver provides for an interesting array of shops, restaurants and food purveyors, all within 1 km of our home. A few minutes walk will take you to Lonsdale Quay and the Seabus, a great way to visit the sights of downtown Vancouver. A short drive will take you to Highway 1 and a drive up the scenic Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler. A bus stop is a block away. A perfect base for exploring the Greater Vancouver area or taking care of business.
