Beat the heat in The Starlight Suite!

Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6 max), suite in house with heated inground pool!

The Starlight Suite has been completely renovated! It offers a fully-furnished two-bedroom apartment unit, with it's own separtate entrance in my detached house in a fantastic residential area of Coquitlam, Ranch Park, 25 minutes from Vancouver, BC. There are two twin-beds in one of the bedrooms, and a queen-bed in the master bedroom. The suite sleeps four comfortably, however, there is a double sofa bed and a roll-away bed available for up to six staying in a pinch. There is free high speed internet, just bring your laptop computer.

The living room, with an electric fireplace is open to the fully-equipped kitchen area, and both offer all the ammenities of home. There is a full bathroom, plus a shared laundry room area. Also included in your stay, cable television, and a telephone for free local calls.

There is access to the locked yard, with the large pool. Adult supervision is required for children as there is no supervision provided.

The suite has been extremely popular since 2003 as a great place for persons or families that are between buying and selling homes, vacationing in the area, visiting out of town family and friends, and insurance claims of fire and damage. We are sure you will enjoy your stay!

For longer stays housekeeping can be arranged with an outside housekeeper at $30/hour.

My daughter (12 in August) if available would love to babysit your children. She is Certified with the Red Cross Babysitting Course. As well, she is a St John's Ambulance Volunteer First Aid Cadet. She attends 2 1/2 hours each week with St John's Ambulance.

About Cory O'Brien

I was born and raised in Coquitlam, and love it! I have had 5 children, and although they don't all live with me now, they all love this home in Coquitlam and the pool!

I had an earlier career in the Hospitality and Tourism industry, and after starting my family, I became a Realtor in the area in 1997. In 2002, I realized that there was a great need for people to have a 'home' and not a hotel when they were moving and between homes. There were only a couple 'vacation rental properties' in all the lower mainland when I started out with the Starlight Suite. I recently sold my vacation rental, 'The Mermaid Hutch' in Birch Bay, Washington, USA, which I operated as a vacation rental since 2004.

My family and I have been blessed with meeting such wonderful people through the vacation rentals. As pleasurable as the suite is to guests, we enjoy having people as well! Come and stay...I am sure you won't be disappointed.

We had an excellent time.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time staying at this house. The house is close enough to Vancouver that we could easily go and visit the city when we wanted to, but was in a quiet neighborhood that we could relax in when we needed down time. Cory was an excellent host who was very helpful and kind when we talked. I would certain recommend this place to friends and family of mine.

new to VRBO, so this was a great start

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time we have tried this type of rental, but we needed a place large enough for our family with breaking the bank. The location and price worked out perfectly for us, and everything was just as advertised.

Basement apartment

  • 3 of 5

The owner was very nice and the price was a good deal, but we were a bit disappointed with the accommodations. It's a basement apartment and definitely feels like a basement because it's damp and dark. The pool wasn't in very good condition and was not all that warm. It was also somewhat hard to find if you don't know the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! It was nice to have you stay a few days in the suite. The pool maintenance company did get behind with slow service during the hot 30+ temperatures this summer, and we did need to turn the pool temperature down to 27 degrees. Some guests were letting us know that a pool temperature of 29 degrees was too warm. All is in check now. :)

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as advertised. Clean, and well equipped. Quite some distance to downtown Vancouver making a car is a must if thats your goal. But suburb things are close by, shopping centre, nature and quiet. Would be happy to return.

Car: recommended

The Starlight Suite is approximately a 10 minute walk to the Coquitlam Centre Mall and all shopping, the major transit hub of Coquitlam Station, including the West Coast Express train to Vancouver. The urban forest park of Mundy Park is a 10 minute walk away. A 20 minute drive to nearby lakes with beaches. Coquitlam is a fantastic central area to all lower mainland areas!
