Excellent Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The basement was great-bigger than expected and well lit. We stayed during a hot spell so it was refreshingly cool but would be warm and super cozy in winter. If you are visiting family and friends In the Delbrook/Lonsdale/Capilano areas who can't put you up but you want to be close by, this would be ideal. If you have kids who need a space to play and a chance to meet other kids at then end of a day of touring, this would be a great choice. Safe family cul de sac only a minute's walk to the bus that can take you to Lonsdale Quay or a few minutes to the bus to Grouse Mountain. Local shopping plaza is about 10minute walk and the neighbourhood itself is excellent for pleasure walks. The hosts made prompt and very clear contact before arrival and were available to help all during our stay. Checkout was also efficient as was post visit refund and correspondence. Highly recommend!

As much as this is a family area the suite itself is very quiet and private and could provide solitude for a single or couple.

Great location and Superb Suite

  • 5 of 5

The suite is bright and cheery. The location is fabulous for easy access to the highway and local shopping centre. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking items. The bedroom and sitting area are very comfortable. As one enters the suite you walk along on the path and see the garden and natural beauty of North Vancouver.

Excellent Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 12 days in this place and really enjoyed the space, convenience and comfort. It is well located in a quiet and very accessible part of North Vancouver (we had our car with us which made it extremely convenient). Jeff and Sarra were excellent hosts and we really appreciated their flexibility with our arrival date. Highly recommend this as a "home away from home" in beautiful North Vancouver

Review from the Watson's

  • 5 of 5

Sydney's Suite was AWESOME...What a beautiful suite with a beautiful yard. The suite had everything we needed for our 5 days there. The bathroom and kitchen were well equipped. I like to cook most of our meals and there was everything there that I needed. The bathroom had nice large towels and the bed was very comfortable. The suite was very clean and well kept. We loved that we had a enclosed back yard so our golden retriever could run around. Jeff and Sarra were very kind and welcoming as well as their son. My dog had a great time playing with their dog in the yard. The suite was within walking distance to a beautiful off leash trail, Mosquito Creek, to walk our dog. It is also located very close to all the activities we wanted to do; Suspension Bridge, Stanley Park, Lion's Gate Bridge, Downtown, and about an hour's drive from Whistler. We had the best time there. I have already told all my family and friends about the suite and highly recommend it for them to stay if they are ever up there. I would go back , for such. I give it 5 STARS !!!!

Lovely apartment. Relaxing time.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a few days of down time. This place was perfect. It's a nice apartment with a good kitchen (we like to cook for ourselves.) Stores are nearby, for those things you've forgotten to bring. There are lots of hiking trails a short drive from there and, if you just want to hang out and read, the backyard is a lovely place of retreat.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the opportunity to rent this suite for two-months as my new condo was completed. Jeff, Sarra and their children were welcoming hosts. Very clean accommodations, comfortable bed and top-grade laundry facility were all appreciated. The yard is beautiful, well-kept and quiet. Great location that is close enough to the highway, where you can be almost anywhere within a relatively short time frame. I will greatly miss their resident dog, Sydney, as she was a delight to see every day as well.

Suite is accessed through the back of the house and provides a private, fenced backyard with lawn chairs and a table. We are located close to a number of must see Vancouver sites including only 7 minutes to Grouse Mountain, beautiful in summer for water sports, hiking, bear watching & spectacular views and fun in the winter for skiing and snow shoeing. Capilano Suspension bridge is a 5 minute drive and Stanley Park only 10 minutes away. There are three children's playgrounds within a 10 minute walk and numerous hiking trails close by suitable for kids. We have a basketball net and rebound net for kids to play with.
