Overview

About the property

Bright, Centrally Located One Bedroom Suite

We've taken care to make our suite cosy and warm with heated floors and comfortable furniture. A queen-sized bed is in the spacious bedroom and the walk-in closet will allow you to unpack your suitcase and feel right at home. The bathroom has a shower (but sorry, no tub). The small kitchen has everything you need (and if it doesn't you have only to ask us): a two burner cooktop, a small fridge, microwave/convection oven, toaster, coffee maker and more. The shared laundry room has a big freezer with room for your needs as well as ours. WiFi and cable are included with a good array of channels to choose from but you'll be too busy exploring to do too much TV watching. A great array of restaurants, all within walking distance, will make decisions difficult. Grocery stores, shops, library, sushi, coffee shops (we specialize in those!!!) and ice cream/yogurt vendors are plentiful. Transportation isn't a problem if you don't have a car: a bus stop is a block away and a short walk down to Lonsdale Quay will find you at the Seabus terminal. Our Skytrain system will take you all over town and even straight to the airport at the end of your visit.

Our suite is a bright basement suite with windows that bring a lot of light in and there is a private entrance guarded by two cats - both friendly to a fault. If you're missing your own pet one of ours will be pleased to accept any amount of neck-rubbing.

About Andrea Smith

We are two sisters, born and raised in Vancouver. We've lived in North Vancouver most of our lives. Our half duplex was built in 2012 so it's virtually brand new and we love it. One sister is a retired teacher/librarian and the other, a professional accountant, is semi-retired. We downsized from our previous home in North Van where we lived for over 25 years partly to get away from our big garden. Our new garden and deck are just the right size and we love sharing them with friends and family.

Andrea Smith purchased this house in 2012

Why Andrea Smith chose North Vancouver

We chose this area of North Vancouver because we were looking for something within walking distance shops and restaurants. A park nearby provides a beautiful setting for morning walks and we love the south-facing back yard that provides a lot of natural light.

What makes this house unique

At first a bit apprehensive about changing neighbourhoods we quickly settled into Lolo (Lower Lonsdale) and its proximity to everything we need but the best thing about it is that it's simply...home.

Very clean, and extremely comfortable -

  • 4 of 5

We found the apartment to be very compact and well organized. A binder with guidelines and instructions including restaurants, bus schedules and local places to see was very helpful. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in. The negative was there did not seem to be any soundproofing between the floors. We heard every footstep and would certainly recommend the owners wear soft slippers instead of shoes. We enjoyed our stay very much.

A lovely property in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in North Vancouver and would definitely stay at this property again. The suite is lovely and had everything we needed. We appreciated the cleanliness and comfortable bed. Barbara and Andrea went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable while at the same time, giving us privacy. We appreciated this. This property is in a great location and within walking distance to great shops, restaurants and Lonsdale Quay.

A most enjoyable stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This self contained 1 bedroom basement apartment is located in a well maintained semi-detached home in North Vancouver. The surrounding property is nicely landscaped and sits in a quiet residential neighbourhood. It is within walking distance of markets, restaurants and Seabus transportation to Vancouver. The owners live in the main part of the house and were welcoming, friendly, helpful and respectful of our privacy and quiet enjoyment of their rental unit throughout our month long stay. Upon our arrival, we found the apartment to be spotlessly clean and well appointed with all requisite amenities including access to a washer/dryer. The apartment was ideally suited for us as seniors visiting our daughter and her family living nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to have the opportunity for a return visit in the not too distant future. Thank you to Andrea & Barbara.

The international demographic of North Vancouver provides for an interesting array of shops, restaurants and food purveyors, all within 1 km of our home. A few minutes walk will take you to Lonsdale Quay and the Seabus, a great way to visit the sights of downtown Vancouver. A short drive will take you to Highway 1 and a drive up the scenic Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler. A bus stop is a block away. A perfect base for exploring the Greater Vancouver area or taking care of business.
