About Dorothy D. Barkley
I am a happy, albeit a somewhat careless, gardener, an enthusiastic dog owner, a jogger and very involved in local planning issues. I love reading, movies, my house and my cottage, where I take long walks on the beaches and in the forests with my dogs. I am delighted to share my home with you and look forward to meeting you!

Great host and location.
Everything was perfect from check-in, location and Dorothy was a great host. Very charming cottage and beautiful garden area. Would definitely stay here again in the future.
Lovely spot just off The Drive
A good place to stay, a beautiful garden when you want a moment to relax. If you want to cook maybe a little limited but aside from that we had a lovely stay and Dorothy was very helpful.
Excellent location in charming neighbourhood
Dorothy met us upon arrival and is very friendly and accommodating and her dog Kenzie is very sweet
The rental is located steps from busy Commercial Drive with numerous stores and restaurants and is completely self sufficient and charming
I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to enjoy the vibes of East Van
Great location and hostess
Lovely spot. Dorothy was very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.

Super cute upper suite in beautiful Victorian style home. The unit was cozy but had plenty of room. There's no a/c or TV but we didn't need either one, even staying in June. The location is in walking distance to Commercial Dr making it convenient to tons of restaurants and nightlife. The garden and flowers on the property are gorgeous. Easy access to freeways but parking was a bit cumbersome since parking in front of the home is permit only. You can easily find parking on an adjacent street. If you are looking for seclusion this may not be the place for you, but we were happy to chat with Dorothy and the tenants who occupy the downstairs unit. Dorothy was a wonderful host.
Practically Perfect in Every Way
I was so lucky to stay at 1849 Venables on my trip to Vancouver this week. Dorothy is a wonderful, thoughtful host who has anticipated just about anything a visitor would need in a rental. The unit is the second floor of a lovely garden home, with a well-equipped kitchen and lots of comfortable seating -- perfect for up to two people. Bonus -- you get access to a gorgeous, big garden, with views of a spectacular sunset.
Buses are frequent, and they get you downtown in about 20 minutes. If you need the LRT for longer distances, it's close enough, just a short bus ride or a 20-minute walk away.
Though I've been to Vancouver many times, I'd never realized that Commercial Drive is such an interesting place, with cafés, restaurants, fresh fruit stands, and shops. It's less than a five-minute walk from the house, and the next time I stay, I'll plan a half-day just to stroll and take it all in.
I hope I'll be welcome to book here on future trips to the city because, really, why would anyone ever want to stay anywhere else??
Mitch, you are a kind and generous guest who makes hosting a pleasure. Thanks for your kind words and being such a delightful guest; Kenzi and I looked forward to each encounter with you and now look forward to your returning again.
over 100 restaurants, 2 live theatres, 1 movie theatre, several parks within minutes of the house. In Vancouver you have botanical gardens, all winter & water sports available, hiking, theatres, shopping, and much more.
