Overview

Hastings-Sunrise House Rental Photos and Description

1 Q bedroom + Q sofa bed ~ delightful place ~ spectacular scenery ~ central.

Myrtle Suite: A delightful accommodation ~ a charming area ~ spectacular scenery ~ centrally located.

Suite Summary

Myrtle Suite is a newly renovated, spacious and bright garden level suite within a character home. This self-catering, self-contained suite is part of a larger house where the owners reside upstairs. The suite is approx. 750 sf and provides 1 bedroom with queen-sized bed plus a queen sofa bed in the living area. It features full bath, in-suite laundry, hardwood and tile floors, own thermostat, modern kitchen and bathroom. Furnished, including kitchen utensils, plates, pots/pans, spices, etc. The kitchen entrance opens onto a sunny back garden that in the summer blooms with flowers, herbs and grape vines. The living area has a large picture window looking out onto the front garden and offers a gorgeous view of Vancouver's mountains and a peek-a-boo ocean view. Side windows provide more light.

Central Location!

Enjoy easy access by car or transit to Vancouver and surrounding area sights and activities.

You are just a 10-minute drive (or 20-minute bus ride) to downtown Vancouver including Gastown, Chinatown, Yaletown, theatres, museums and shopping. The campuses of Simon Fraser, BCIT and Capilano College are all about a 20-minute drive. The Trans Canada Highway #1 is minutes away, taking you to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal with destinations including Vancouver Island, Bowen Island, scenic Gibson’s Landing and the Sunshine Coast; or drive a further 60-90 minutes north to the resort village of the Whistler/Blackcomb ski hills and beyond. Drive across the nearby Ironworkers Bridge, and in 20 minutes you can be enjoying our local ski resorts of Grouse, Seymour or Cypress mountains or many hiking and mountain biking trails (check out Capilano Suspension Bridge and park, Lynn Valley Canyon, Deep Cove and the Baden Powell Trail or the challenging Grouse Grind).

The Neighbourhood

With a stunning view of the mountains and Burrard inlet, 19th century New Westminster residents would flock to the popular recreational destination of New Brighton (as this area was then called). Later the area became part of Hastings Townsite, one of Vancouver's oldest neighbourhoods. Today, Burrardview is part of the Hastings-Sunrise community and close to the shops of 'East Village' along Hastings Street. Also known as the 'hidden triangle', the area is only a few blocks deep and not many more wide and is situated above the shores of Burrard Inlet.

Today Vancouver's charming Burrardview is a community of tree-lined streets and is blessed with plenty of green space, parks and ocean-view walks. Centrally located (see above), Myrtle Suite is a short walk to bus routes; near several bike routes. Stroll up to 'East Village' for shopping on eclectic East Hastings Street, featuring restaurants, delis, grocery, bakeries, drug store, banks, community centre and other amenities. Take a short walk to the larger parks of New Brighton and Hastings Park and enjoy the local racecourse, casino and Playland with its famous heritage roller coaster. Hastings Park is also home to the Pacific National Exhibition in the last two weeks of August. This is a vibrant neighbourhood and retains a lovely charm and history in an absolutely spectacular setting!

Amenities Summary

1 Bedroom with queen-sized bed and double closet; queen sofa bed in living area; extra walk in closet/storage; modern full bath/shower, curling iron, blow dryer; iron, ironing board; sleek and sunny kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer, toaster, coffee machine, coffee grinder, kettle, dishes, cutlery, pots, pans, etc.; TV, Netflix, WiFi; hydro/electric utilities, cable and internet included.

About Toni

Originally from Scotland, our family immigrated in the 70s. I've lived in several Canadian locations and in Vancouver from the mid 80s.

Toni purchased this house in 2001

Why Toni chose East Side

Many years ago, bicycling around town, I discovered the area known as Burrardview (sometimes called the hidden triangle). I thought to myself how wonderful it would be to have a home here.

By very happy chance, and a lot of hard work, 'Myrtle House' is now our home. It is such a lovely location and wonderfully easy to get to so much of all that Vancouver has to offer. We always planned to have a vacation rental and now enjoy offering Myrtle Suite as a base to travellers and short-term visitors. Every day I am thankful for this home, the views, the location, the community.

What makes this house unique

The views from the house and the neighbourhood are stunning. Watching the sun light up the mountains in the morning or going down in the Northwest late on a summer evening never gets old. I love that we can wander down to the end of our street to play tennis or enjoy the park, we can take lovely walks around the neighbourhood, down to New Brighton park, up to the shops of Hastings Street. It is also terrific to be able to get to so many places in a 10 or 20 minute drive! Or to the airport in 40 minutes or even to Tswassen or Horseshoe Bay ferries.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

Toni and Bob provided SUCH great hospitality during our stay. Anything we needed they made it happen!! Their suite was immaculate and really felt like a "home away from home." We used the outdoor grill two of the nights, and even had dinner on the outside table which is surrounded by a lovely yard and garden. Overall, the suite far exceeded our expectations and is definitely a hidden gem! Next time we are in Vancouver, I will only be searching for one place to stay - the Myrtle Suite! Thank you Toni and Bob!!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you felt at home in the suite - we do try to give it that homey feel. We've been very blessed (knock-on-wood) with the people that have stayed at Myrtle Suite, and you and your family are wonderful guests! We enjoyed meeting you guys and the conversations we had. It will be terrific to see you next time and get all your news! PS: Thank you for leaving everything so neat and clean. I've defrosted the soup and will be trying it tomorrow :)

Our home away from home in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Myrtle Suite. We are in Vancouver frequently to visit family and would not stay anywhere else. The accommodations are impeccable, the location in a quiet residential neighbourhood is convenient to shopping, restaurants, bike paths and bus routes. In addition, we always appreciate the warm welcome and exceptional hospitality of our hosts.

Lovely Suite in East Village

  • 5 of 5

Toni and Bob are very nice hosts. They welcome us and make sure we had everything we need for our stay. The suite is very clean, nicely decorated and well stocked with cooking supplies and spices. There are many nice touches like fresh flowers, home made granola when you arrived. The location is perfect to go to downtown Vancouver or the surrounding areas. The views are also nice from the living room. Thanks again for the hospitality.

Enjoy hikes in Lynn Valley, Deep Cove, Bunsen Lake, Capilano Valley. Ski Grouse, Seymour or Cypress.

A car is great in and around Vancouver, but you can see a lot with public transit too!
