Property description

Graveley Garden Suite, Commercial Drive, Vancouver:

Special note: We are fully booked until January 2016. For those of you who come every year, please try us again in 2016 when we will offer a special rate for returning guests!

This lovely and private garden suite is located in a beautiful fully-renovated heritage home in a friendly and vibrant neighborhood. It is attractively furnished and is comfortable and spacious. The suite has a private entrance and a beautiful garden patio.

Perfect for travellers of all kinds who are tired of hotels with no kitchen facilities, looking for some authentic neighboorhood feel, or visiting with relatives and friends but want their own space too. If this describes you, come and stay in our little hideaway while you are in Vancouver! Whether you are vacationing with family, travelling on business, here with the film industry, or a government employee temporarily assigned in Vancouver we offer a comfortable and affordable furnished suite for your short term stay. Please see our calendar for availability.

Convenient central location with easy access to all the amenities, you are a two minute walk along our quiet tree-lined street to the best part of fabulous Commercial Drive, with shops, groceries, restaurants, live music/entertainment, recreational facilities and the greatest selection of coffee shops anywhere!

By car you are just a 8 minute drive to the city center and a 30 minute drive to any location in the city, from the beaches of Kitsilano, to the mountains of the North Shore, to the BC ferry portal to the Gulf Islands and Victoria. We are very close to public transit: buses are a block away, Skytrain (rapid transit) is a 12 minute walk. Many guests opt to go car free as travelling around the city is super easy, but if you have a car, we have a large off street parking space just for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We love living in this beautiful 1910 heritage home in a prime heritage area of Vancouver, and sharing the Commercial Drive area with visitors from all over the world. Vancouver is indeed a visitors paradise and we enjoy the great variety of people who come and explore its many hidden gems.

Why the Owner Chose Grandview-Woodland:
Commercial Drive is one of the trendiest areas in Vancouver and a fabulous place to visit. The house is on a quiet street 1 1/2 blocks from the best cafes, restaurants, live music clubs and bars, shops, produce and health food stores. There are fitness facilities, banks, groceries, transit, and a liquor store all within minutes from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our house is over 100 years old. She celebrated her 100th birthday in 2010. Over the last several years she has had major renovations to every sector of the home, including the suite. The suite is a new installation including both kitchen and bathroom and has not been rented prior to this listing on VRBO. The entire house, including the suite, has retained its heritage charm and combines the best of modern and heritage living.
