Riley Park-Little Mountain House Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4
Although we have a 7 night minimum stay, check the Vancouver Garden House website for 5 and 6 night specials. Our quoted rate includes all taxes and fees. On site parking is free.
Centrally situated in Mount Pleasant/Riley Park near Main Street, this welcoming one-bedroom garden house offers privacy, quiet and convenience. The free standing building features large floor-to-ceiling living room windows that look out onto beautifully maintained landscaping while providing lots of south-facing light to this bright, airy space. A fountain splashes clear water into a 3 foot deep pond that stretches across the front of the house; a cedar plank sitting deck acts as a bridge to the entrance way. The contemporary and open-concept design creates a flow from one room to the next. Guests have their own entrance as well as private parking right beside the Garden house. Additionally, there is ample free street parking in front of the property and in our quiet and safe residential neighbourhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had the joy of staying at this beautiful new rental for a week in the fall of 2011. It is located in a tree-lined residential area of Vancouver just a few blocks off of Main Street, a well-occupied shopping and dining resource. The newly constructed living unit sits a bit behind the owners home and has its own private access. Parking was not an issue. The unit is perfect for a couple or a single renter, with a full kitchen, bath, living room and separate bedroom. Washer and dryer, dishwasher and microwave are included, as is a broadband WiFi connection. A television is available, but we didn't use it during our stay, as there was too much to do out and about!
The rental is very private. Encased in the sound of a nearby outdoor fountain, the unit is quiet and receptive. Heating was fully adequate. The queen-sized bed was quite comfortable. The large apple tree just outside its entrance offered delicious snacks. The owners, Gary and Carole, were wonderfully responsive hosts and eagerly shared information about their city and its events, to make our stay even more pleasant.
We would be delighted to stay there again.
Carole and Gary are very happy to share the beauty and excitement of Canada's's wonderful west coast city; Vancouver. Both are working, professional artists. Carole is a photographer and writer and Gary is a pianist and composer.
We choose this property because of it's nearness to the developing Main Street cultural and retail stores and shops. In our own development, we were able to save old trees and add new landscaping when we build our house.
