Overview

About the property

1 BR self contained apartment with private entrance on beautiful Douglas Park

Clean, comfortable 1 bedroom garden level suite with private entrance, patio, and garden. Close to everything Vancouver has to offer - shopping, restaurants, recreation and the Canada Line subway to downtown and the airport all a short walk away.

Four bus lines run very close, taking you directly to Downtown, UBC, Stanley Park, Granville Island, etc. If you arrive by car, there is free parking just outside the door.

BC's major health centres, Vancouver General Hospital, BC Cancer Agency, and BC Children's Hospital are all within 15 minutes walking distance.

This is a great location for families, with a nice park across the street with playground, fitness center, running track, and splash pool in summer. Free family oriented concerts every Thursday evening in the summer! Hillcrest Olympic Rec Center is also close by, with a large pool (indoor and outdoor), skating rink, library, etc.

Local shopping and restaurants are only 500m away, in Cambie Village. Other shopping districts are also within just a few km: Main Street, South Granville, Granville Island, and the large Oakridge Mall.

When you are not out in the city, enjoy the peaceful private patio with a view of the park and mountains!

The apartment is very quiet and private, with a queen size bed in the bedroom and a sofa in the sitting room that converts to a second queen-sized bed. A single mattress or a portable crib can be supplied on request. The bathroom has grab bars installed in the bath tub, making access easy and safe. Clean linens and towels are provided, and housekeeping services during the stay are available if desired. Guests also have free access to a shared laundry room.

The living room has been recently updated with a 42" flatscreen TV.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just stayed at the place for one night and it was great. No issues at all. The apartment is nice and clean and had everything available. There is also a LCD TV in the living room (pictures showed an old one) and has a cable box too. No issues with the Internet. There is access to the laundry room, but we didn't use it except for the iron. The place is about 10min drive to downtown. Parking is free on the street beside the house. The entrance to the apartment opens up to the park and gives a really peaceful feeling. My mother in law loved it and sat outside for a while in the morning just relaxing to the view.

Home away from home

Thanks to Jamie for a fabulous stay- it was ideal for us a family of 4 with 2 children). We will never stay in a hotel for leisure again.

Best place to stay in Vancouver

  • 5 of 5

My husband absolutely loved our two nights at the apartment, and wish that we could have stayed longer! This was about a 7-minute walk to the King Edward train station, which was super convenient to downtown (and to the airport). So, the location was perfect for us, since we preferred not to stay right downtown! There are lots of restaurants, shops, and things to do within walking distance. We didn't have a lot of time this trip, but look forward to coming back in the future to explore more of the immediate surrounding area. As far as the apartment itself goes, it was clean, comfortable (the bed is wonderful!), and quiet. I have no complaints. We will be back someday! Thank you, Jamie!

Home From Home in a picturesque peaceful neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

This apartment truly is a home from home. It has just about everything you could possibly need for a stay in Vancouver. It's a very comfortable place in the perfect location. There is a supermarket just a 10 minute walk away and the train line into town is also a short walk in the other direction. There is a park opposite which makes for pleasant views especially if you sit out in your own little garden. There is a table and chairs outside that we spent a few evenings at watching the sunset through the trees. You can also see the top of Grouse Mountain through another gap in the branches. All in all, we had a very relaxed stay and would certainly stay here again when we visit Vancouver in a few years time!! Highly recommend it!!

Cannot recommend this place enough!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June, 2 adults and a toddler. The apartment was lovely, clean and child friendly for our toddler and Jamie provided a highchair and crib for us.

The best thing though was the location. It's in a really nice neighbourhood and right on Douglas Park which has a lovely playground that our son loved. There were a lot of baseball practices and games in the park which we loved watching and it was nice to sit out the front of the house in the evening and take it all in.

We hired a car and had no problems parking at the house. We drove to a lot of attractions and none were very far away, but we also walked to a few places too.

If we ever moved to Vancouver this is definitely where we'd want to live! Thanks for a great week!
