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.

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.
