Overview

Grandview-Woodland House Rental Photos and Description

Fully furnished two bedroom garden suite in the heart of Commercial Drive

~ Commercial Drive Cozy Getaway ~

Entirely Furnished Two Bedroom Garden Level Suite

Located in the heart of Commercial Drive, East Vancouver, in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

We are pleased to offer you our fully furnished, fully equipped garden level suite for short or long term rentals.

We have created a cozy, welcoming, warm and truly comfortable self-contained suite to welcome you to Vancouver.

The suite is uniquely furnished and outfitted, filled with warm colours and simple yet beautiful furnishings and artwork. We offer you two bedrooms with very comfortable queen beds, washer/dryer, dishwasher, fully outfitted kitchen, living room, and new bathroom. It also has free parking at the back of the house, right by your private entrance, and a patio right under the cherry trees for your use.

For travelling parents, we provide for your convenience a high chair (changes level and tilts to lounging position), playpen/bassinette, stroller and infant rear facing car seat (detachable that clips in the stroller) plus a toddler car seat (see pictures for details). Hopefully this can make your travelling arrangements easier.

Everyone who has stayed in our suite was nothing but happy, comfortable, felt right at home and loved the space. However, as a courtesy to our guests, we want to check that our ceiling height will not cause a problem in case you happen to be an extremely tall person! The ceiling is slightly lower than normal height in the suite (approximately 6'5')(196cm), and there is a beam going across the living room doorway that is around 6' (183 cm). As we said, this has not been a problem for anyone but we do like you to have this information before you check in.

We are located in the heart of Commercial Drive, an area lovingly called “The Drive,” by the locals. This is an eclectic and unique neighborhood with great shopping, a diverse variety of restaurants, beautiful parks, and a vibrant ambiance, and easy access to all other parts of Vancouver.

The Commercial Drive Cozy Getaway locates you less than one block away from public transit.

It is an easy 15-minute drive to downtown Vancouver, or only one bus if you are using transit. You can also spend lovely days right here in the neighborhood - Commercial Drive is home to many international restaurants, European-style cafes, night entertainment, health food stores, and great shopping within a few blocks. There is a yoga studio just across the street and also only a block away we have a community centre with a pool, skating rink, gym, athletic track and library.

~ We maintain a smoke free and pet free environment for all of our guests. ~

Accommodations:

Garden Level suite in Character House.

Children are welcome.

2 bedrooms with queen beds in each room, 1 new bathroom with full shower and bathtub.

Our other amenities include: ? Laundry, iron, ironing board, full kitchen with dishwasher, Wireless Internet, HDTV, DVD/Blu-Ray player and cable.

Free parking is available behind the house (space for one car).

There is also the possibility of renting our car, so please inquire to us directly and we can discuss the details with you on an individual basis.

When our schedules allow, we offer a shuttle to and from the Vancouver International Airport for just $25. A taxi would cost you approximately $40 to get to our house. We are also happy to send you detailed directions if you are planning to take public transit.

Thank you, and we look forward to meeting you!

Alexis and Sylvain

About Sylvain Senez

We - Alexis and Sylvain - are professional dance artists and we both work for Ballet BC in Vancouver. Alexis is a dancer, Sylvain is the rehearsal director for the Company and also a photographer. We are passionate for our commitment to working in the arts and we want to reflect that in our home. Our intention is to create a welcoming and restful environment for all our guests.

Sylvain Senez purchased this house in 2009

Why Sylvain Senez chose Grandview-Woodland

Commercial Drive is a beautiful neighborhood, and one of Vancouver's many special places. It is a creatively inspiring, colourful, eclectic and lively place to live. Our home - Casa Om - has brought a sense of magic, spontenaeity, and synchronicity into our lives, our relationships, and into the lives of many of our guests. We cherish this home and have the intention of using our space to create an atmosphere of welcome and beauty to share with others.

We have been also successfully running a small B&B business out of our main house for three years, and this rental garden suite is something we are excited to add to our list of offers to our guests.

What makes this house unique

Our house is a character home which has been renovated and re designed over the years. We love the yard with it's cherry trees, the unique neighborhood of Commercial Drive, the views of the mountains, and the quiet, family feel of our street. We have decorated and furnished our rental apartment with love, care, and our own unique creativity, casting it warm, vibrant colours, and even using some of our own and family members' photography to hang on the walls. We feel fortunate to live in this part of the world, and to have the opportunity to share it with those visiting Vancouver. We are also a bilingual English/French household, so if you are french-speaking you will feel right at home.

Little Jewel just of Commercial Drive

  • 5 of 5

Sylvain & Alexis are great hosts.

Their rental is fabulous and one could not ask for more.

Clean, everything is at its best, beds, furniture, surroundings, I mean everything, even the little balcony outback in the yard.

We were 5 persons and we had a lot of our family members over for lunch, they all fell in Love with the property.

In our case this property was as close as a 5 minute walk to my brother as we came here for his wedding.

High marks for this rental and the owners.

Other members of my family would come back and rent this property.

Cheers,

The Rabassa-Hernandez Family

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay at the Cozy Getaway Suite, and commend Sylvain and Alexis for their hard work in creating such an amazing space for their guests. The quality of everything from the bed/linens to the kitchen supplies/appliances is supreme, add to this an ideal location and the result was home away from home! The prior reviewer pretty much summed up everything we experienced too! We will return again, thank you Sylvain-Alexis for your contribution to an excellent stay.

One more 5 Star Review

  • 5 of 5

This property doesn't really need another 5 star review - there are many. It is a very comfortable and well equipped two bedroom suite in a funky/trendy area of Vancouver. Close to transit, but parking provided. Excellent quality beds, bedding and kitchen equipment. Good knives, big stainless steel fridge, washer and dryer, dishwasher, flat screen TV - and two Stressless leather chairs with footstools (luxury!) Sylvain and Alexis were willing to lend us a food processor and a blender - we even made two batches of jam while we were there! If you are someone who actually plans to cook, there are casseroles, cookies sheets, cake pans - way more than you would expect. But if not, there are at least 30 restaurants within walking distance. And if you like to read - good reading lights by the beds! Access to the garden - really excellent value and a wonderful base to visit Vancouver.

Excellent address in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with two teenage girls and stayed recently at this property. The house is situated in a small and quite side road but just a few steps away from vibrant Commercial Drive. The apartment is very comfortable and clean. The owners who live upstairs are very friendly and helpful. They informed us in advance about the slightly lower ceilings in the apartment which we didn't feel to be a problem at all although all of us are quite tall. The kitchen was new and well equipped so it was quite hard to decide whether to cook for ourselves or to visit one of the many nice restaurants nearby. I would recommend this apartment to everyone who likes a quite and comfortable place to stay while being right in the city at the same time. Thanks Alexis and Sylvain for your hospitality!

To Good To Be True

  • 5 of 5

I kept waiting to be disappointed because the pictures and description seemed to good to be true for such a low cost. This was an adorable, comfortable and peaceful place to stay. The owner's are so kind and did anything they could to make our stay as wonderful as possible. It was so much better than I thought it would be. I would recommend this Suite to my most precious friends and family.

Host are Very Accomodating

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our adult children along with their 6 month old baby thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this newly renovated suite. The hosts are super friendly people and even went out of their way to acquire some baby equipment for our stay(stroller, high chair, playpen, etc.) The bedrooms are both large enough to accommodate a playpen. The suite is very nice and has everything one needs to make their stay comfortable. Everything in the suite is fairly new and the entire suite has been recently renovated by the owner. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. It has its own private entrance and also has access through a patio door to patio in the back yard. Overall we had great stay thanks to the gracious owners. The location was ideal for us as it was walking distance to Commercial Drive and our daughter's condo. We will be back for sure as we travel to Vancouver often.

Map

Car: not necessary

Commercial Drive is a vibrant, eclectic neighborhood in the heart of East Vancouver.

This suite is ideal for vacations, family getaways, ski trips, and is also perfect for those needing affordable furnished accommodation for the longer term. Easily accessible from here (both by car and on public transit) are also both SFU campus sites, VCC, and Vancouver Film School.

We are just a 10 minute drive or 20 minute public transit trip from downtown Vancouver, but our beautiful neighborhood has a life all of it’s own! We are located just half a block away from public transit, unique shopping, great restaurants, European- style cafes, a yoga studio, pool, gym, ice rink, and athletic track.

Also easily accessible from here is transportation to Grouse Mountain, Whistler, both BC Ferry Terminals (Tsswassen and Horseshoe Bay), and access to beautiful hiking trails which allow you to experience the natural splendour of British Columbia.
