About the property

Welcome to our family retreat! This is our home-away from home...literally! A cute two bedroom ground level suite in an updated Character home makes for a wonderful home base when in Vancouver. A private entrance from the garden leads into a cozy, and updated environment.

All the comforts of home - queen sized bed in one bedroom and bunk beds in the other, along with an open living space and kitchen. Access to laundry as well as cable and internet.

About Samantha Stone

Welcome to our pre-kids, pre-wedding home. Now we are living outside of the city but use this gem as our 'pied-à-terre' whenever we can come to the city.

Samantha Stone purchased this house in 1998

Why Samantha Stone chose Vancouver

What's not to love? We love Vancouver and all the amenities and excitement it has to offer. Centrally located we hardly use the car when we arrive with the exception of further afield adventures. Dunbar avenue is a few minutes of walking away. Easy access to bus routes can take you anywhere you dream of going...

Wonderful suite for an awesome price (especially for long term stays); very spacious, clean, modern, lots of toys, bunk beds; my kids loved it and so did we. Convenient location and a super friendly host. Thank you so much Samantha!

Lovely suite!

  • 5 of 5

My toddler son and I ended up staying here for 5 months due to a construction delay. The owner was so patient and accommodating of our situation and I was so grateful to be able to stay the entire time in this suite. The photos really don't do it justice - it's a fresh, well-designed and maintained suite with a comfortable bed and full roomy bathroom, etc. Their were plenty of toys for my son and even a bed for Grandpa to sleep on when he came to visit. The tenants upstairs are lovely and noise wasn't an issue at all. The neighbourhood is wonderful for children, for walking around, and with lots of shops nearby.

All in all, I would highly recommend this rental.

Excellent rental!!

We stayed at this rental while my husband was receiving treatments at VGH. The suite was very comfortable and offered anything you require. The close proximity to amenities was a bonus too!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the suite while my husband was having cancer treatments at the cancer clinic. It was an easy drive to the VGH area and the Dunbar area has convenient shopping close by. It was a quiet, relaxing spot and the owner was most accommodating and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you Deborah. You were a pleasure as guests and if I could I'd give you a five star rating too. I'm glad that we could be of assistance to Al and you during this difficult time.

We enjoyed staying in this nice well equipped suite. It was clean and well maintained. All amenities were available.

Our two toodler girls really enjoyed playing with all the toys provided.

Samantha was very helpful and cared about us.

I would definitely recommend that suite and we are looking forward to come back.

Nestled in a residential area of Vancouver. We are centrally located for quick access to bus stops, groceries, cafes and all the amenities you can dream off. UBC is a quick bus ride, Kitsilano a walk down the road for more shopping and the beach and the airport is an easy cab ride. Access to hospitals is also quick and easy by car and bus.
