Lovely sanctuary in East Van
Lovely sanctuary in East Van
We loved our stay at Laura's house in Vancouver. It was so comfortable and serene, and aesthetically beautiful. I felt great there, and slept really well. The location is awesome, and has a beautiful park with a lake for swimming about 15 minutes away by foot. I would highly recommend this place.

Our stay was really lovely. The unit is well appointed and roomy. I would highly recommend this as a great place to stay for a family. The kitchen is great. Laura is a gracious host who is helpful and warm. We highly recommend the place and host.

About the owner: We are a designer family from Europe - I am an architect and my partner Dante is a graphic artist. I am also a yoga instructor and professional yoga therapist. I have been in the ethical rentals business in Vancouver since 2003. We have a beautiful little girl who is five. Our travels have taken us abroad numerous times and we are pretty seasoned veterans of hauling car seats through airports... We felt it would be lovely service to the traveling family community to furnish this unit so that it would be welcoming of children and make life a bit easier for everyone. We also can't stop falling in love with Vancouver over and over again - even though we have lived here for almost 20 years.
