About The Owner

We are a family of four that lives upstairs. We are hikers and enjoy cooking up feasts on the weekends. We also do have a dog and cat that are not noisy and with the electronic filter does not seem to bother even our most allergic guests.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Why The Owner chose North Vancouver

It is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood with lots of privacy.

What makes this apartment unique

We have lived in the neighbourhood for many years and have a good appreciation of all the north shore has to offer - from nearby restaurants, the best places to order sushi, Indian fusion and pizza delivery, the best trails for biking or hiking, the nearest parks and ski hills. However we also venture downtown on occasion so between our teenager daughter and son and ourselves we have a wealth of knowledge on much of what Vancouver has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the self contained two bedroom suite for a couple of months after our arrival as a family to Vancouver in May 2009.

From the very first welcome through the duration of our stay we had a very nice experience staying in this private accommodation.

Liisa and her family were only too happy to help when called upon, nothing was ever too much trouble and as new arrivals to the area we had lots of questions.

The neighbourhood is one of the nicest on the North Shore, the accommodation is kept to a very high standard of presentation and cleanliness. The suite has everything you need for vacation or as a base whilst in Vancouver.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this suite to anyone. The suite is very neat and clean, it has two nice bedrooms with comfortable beds, great size closets, well equipped kitchen with a big table and small desk suitable for a small office set up, living area with TV and a comfortable sitting arrangement, fair size bathroom, washer and dryer and Storage room. There is a large covered patio by the entrance which is great for sitting and dining outside on a warm day. It is a convenient short drive distance to the Lynn Valley Mall with pretty much anything I needed-groceries, produce, bakery, bank etc. I really enjoyed the nearby forest and the hiking trails including the Baden Powell Trail which start a short walk from the suite. It is a hikers Heaven right there. It is a short drive to downtown Vancouver or any part of the lower mainland due to its proximity to the trans Canada Highway. The owners are very welcoming, helpful and went out of their way to make sure I had everything and was comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay there.

Just perfect :)

  • 5 of 5

My English is not good enough to detail exactly our opinion, but I can say we do agree with what the previous locator wrote, entirely. We spent there our first month in Vancouver, arriving from French Polynesia with 3 children, and everything was just perfect, including the kindness of the owners.

Great place for long term stay.

  • 5 of 5

May family and I have been staying here for a total of 2 months as we get settled back in Canada after living overseas for the last 5 years. This is a great suite. It's very clean and spacious with a nice layout. You feel like you are in the forest. The owners, upstairs, are friendly and helpful but give you all the privacy you would like. It is within walking distance of hiking trails. However, you do need a car if you stay here as amenities are too far to walk to - although only a couple of minutes away by car. Highly recommended.

What a great week!

  • 5 of 5

My family (me, husband, and two daughters under 3) stayed at the Dragonfly Suite for a week in June. It was absolutely perfect. Located in a nice quiet hillside neighborhood overlooking downtown Vancouver. It was very clean and very well maintained. Having two bedrooms was perfect as my husband and I could stay up after our girls had gone down for a nap or down for the night. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner every night (minus the food of course), and after we could sit in the living room and watch movies together. If we had wanted to eat out there was an abundance of shopping centers and restaurants nearby. The owners were extremely friendly and gracious hosts and continually apologized for the less than perfect weather. But escaping the Texas heat was fine with us! They supplied us with an endless list of things to do and see above and beyond what you will read in a tourist guide. While not located directly in downtown, it was an easy 20 minutes from almost everything we did: aquarium, Granville Island, beaches, farmer's markets, parks, etc. Would certainly recommend this suite to anyone and if we find ourselves in Vancouver again, we hope it is available! Ohh and I must mention that I did get to see a deer in the backyard!
