Beautiful and great location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay with friendly and very helpful hosts this is the place for you! The location of this place is perfect. Away from busy downtown Vancouver but close to Main Street which has a great vibe and is full of little shops, great restaurants, pubs with live music and everything else you might need. It's a nice walk from Queen Elizabeth park which is beautiful and a 'must see' as indicated in Trip Advisor's top things to do in Vancouver. This location is also close to public transit - buses and the sky train. If you stay here you must go to the Nomad Restaurant - a friendly owner and the food was so amazing we went twice! Again I can't say enough about the hosts. They were so friendly and helpful with suggestions of what to see and where to eat. They definitely made our stay more enjoyable.

Beautiful, immaculate place, would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our honeymoon and loved the place! We were greeted with some treats and immediately felt at home. The place was tastefully decorated, all the amenities were present, and the location was perfect. Everything felt new, clean, and modern. As for location, we could walk along Main street, as well as drive into downtown or elsewhere if we felt like it and parking was never a problem. If we return to Vancouver, we would love to stay here again!

Beautiful apartment with great charme

  • 5 of 5

This is a surprisingly beautiful apartment; situated in a nice and quiet street, nearby the vibrant area of Vancouver’s Main Street. We loved to stay there for a short week. The suite at garden level is comfortable and tastefully furnished throughout. All the amenities are there. The bed is perfect. The kitchen and living area are very modern, to the inclusion of a spacious couch.

In recent times the apartment has been completely renovated; and this turns out to be a great success. Entering the house we were pleasantly surprised: so much style and elegance.

The owners were respectful of our privacy. Also warmly interested in how things were going. Diane and Wayne, we very much liked staying with you. The next time we plan to visit Vancouver, we surely wish to come back.

Great place/location for anyone of any age

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple in our late 20's, early 30's. We are the type that refers to walk instead of drive and enjoy being in areas with a lot of things going on. Although this place was not downtown, a lot is going on. We did not take advantage of the public transportation, but it appeared to be really close and easily accessible. The location was a short walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, and coffee shops. They have great places to just sit, have a drink, and enjoy the weather. Downtown is a short 15 minute drive. Yes, downtown is where a lot of things are, but we were so happy we made the decision to stay here. We were able to relax and wind down. The owners are friendly and helpful. The apartment is decorated perfectly and so comfortable. I definitely recommend staying here. It was fantastic!

A Beautiful Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Diane and Wayne for sharing your beautiful property with us. Cozy, comfortable, totally lives up to its description. We loved the quiet location, close to transit, unique restaurants and shops on Main. So easy to get to all attractions downtown - our vehicle stayed parked for four days. Fresh warm scones waiting when we arrived and a split of champagne and cookies as an anniversary treat - above and beyond our expectations!

Cannot add much to other reviewers' comments

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a quiet, leafy cul-de-sac just off Main St with its bars, restaurants, supermarkets and other shops (including BC liquor store!) and inexpensive, frequent and reliable public transport links to downtown and beyond. Apartment was clean and comfortable and tastefully furnished throughout. Plenty of CDs and DVDs if you run out of entertainment. Reliable Wi-Fi. Friendly, yet unobtrusive, hosts live upstairs. Would certainly stay here again.

Car: not necessary

We are located just 2 blocks from the intersection of Main St.& King Edward Ave with access to public transportation in all directions. King Edward Station on the new Canada Line rapid transit train is about a 12 minute walk or a 2 min bus ride for transport to downtown or Vancouver Airport..From our quiet residential street to endless shopping and dining choices of South Main is only a minute.away. The Hillcrest Olympic Curling Venue is a 5 minute walk from your door. Add another 5 minutes and you're looking over Vancouver from beautiful Queen Elizabeth Pak. 10 minutes on a bike and you're cycling on an ocean seawall.Want to eat out? Walk to the corner and start to decide; will it be Greek Thai, Japanese, Caribbean,Gourmet or maybe a burger & fries ?. Want to put that gourmet kitchen to work grab a shopping bag and start to forage the many purveyors of fine foods in the immediate vicinity..After dining window shop the many fashion shops..

Other Activities: Live Theater, Live Music
