Location is great!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks in October. We found the apartment clean with everything we needed. It was very spacious and we found it very welcoming after long days of hiking and exploring. The neighbourhood was very quiet.

We rented a car and used our GPS and had no trouble getting around. Even downtown.

Sarra was very accommodating and replied to emails and texts promptly.

If it’s your first visit to Vancouver don’t miss Capilano Suspension bridge, Squamish Sea to Sky Gondola, Lynn Canyon Falls and the “Fly over Canada “ was really cool!!!!

If you stay at this apartment you won’t be disappointed.

Lovely suite

  • 5 of 5

This is my third stay at Sydney's suite and I will continue to book in the future. The location in North Vancouver is nearby family and friends and walks on along Mosquito Creek, Ambleside and North Vancouver parks can be easily accessed

During my stay the weather was amazing allowing me to sit in the lovely garden.

I appreciate the natural light that is afforded in the suite and for a one bedroom, the large and comfortable living and eating areas.

As always the hosts are most welcoming.

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
