Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very comfortable with everything that we needed. The owner was very helpful and full of suggestions for places to eat and visit. The flat is situation just off Commercial Drive which has a great selection of restaurants, cafes and shops.

We had a great time.

A perfect little place

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little apartment! You enter the side gate through a lush garden, follow the sidewalk to the back apartment where another lush patio garden awaits you. The bed was comfortable, the place was spotless, and the owner thought of everything - right down to an umbrella in the closet! The kitchen was very well-stocked; we wanted for nothing. We enjoyed drinking coffee and eating breakfast on the back patio amongst the flowers. We also enjoyed being less than a block away from a bus stop for the 20 Bus (Commercial Avenue), which meant we were able to get around Vancouver by public transit. We didn't need a car at all! Lots of great food on Commercial Street - coffee bars galore, and yummy food (we had wonderful dinners at the Absinthe Cafe and Fet's Whiskey Bar - just 2 blocks away). The inevitable challenges arose, but Mary (who was helping the owner out while she was away on vacation) was incredibly quick to respond. We would rent this place again in a heartbeat.

Great location, just off "the drive"

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment....perfect for visiting family 1/2 hour walk away. The apartment has everything, full kitchen, microwave, 3 coffee makers, toaster....everything! Books, music, movies....closet full of extra chairs, heater, iron & board, umbrellas, clothes drying rack, first aid kit, even shopping bags. We only stayed 6 days, but you could stay there long term and be comfortable. Its proximity to Commercial Drive made it a popular place for our family to visit US....restaurants, shops....THE place to be. You can believe that what is advertised and shown in the photos are absolutely true. Thanks, Linda!

Perfect Location with an amazing host

  • 5 of 5

I was able to spend a week this summer with my brother and mother and I must say the pictures do the apartment justice. Linda was a great host. Not only was she very cordial and prompt with my rental inquiry, she was informative on rental travels and greeted me as soon as I arrived with detailed directions. You can't beat the price on this apartment, worth every penny and more. The pictures do this apartment justice and it is less than a block away from a trendy Commercial Drive. There are many shops, grocery stores, and restaurants around that make a walk on "The Drive" an adventure itself. As close as we were too so much foot traffic, I am happy to say we were able to enjoy our privacy and no noise throughout our stay, even with the Italian Day Festival going on. The home is well equipped with a coffee maker, cooking utensils, and my favorite was the on demand selection Linda has on her TV. The recommendations Linda provides are a must do if your in town for a while. In all, I am extremely happy to have stayed here at the Urban Garden Apartment and hope to be able to stay here on my next trip.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is easy to find from the instructions by Linda and is located a few steps off of Commercial Drive. When we first booked this property we weren't too sure what to expect but it exceeded our expectations in every way. Linda is a great help and everything is as the listing says.

We stayed here for a month and it has everything you need and then some. For the price it can't be beat!

We wish we could rent this property long term, that's how great it is.

Amazing Property

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is located in a very convenient location just off Commercial Drive. It is close to shopping, restaurants, parks and transit systems. My wife and I stayed there while visiting our daughter who lives close by. It was the perfect location.

Linda was a great host and was very helpful and made us extremely welcome. The unit was very clean and well equipped and suited our needs very well. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone
